Foursquare Tips

  • Sit at the bar to watch all the action!
  • The prices are reasonable, with nothing costing more than $15, and the commitment it makes by cooking with only firewood for fuel is admirable, even if it sounds unnecessarily gimmicky.
  • The Brussels sprouts are divine!
  • Ask for the brussel sprouts as a side dish. Best you might ever taste due to very hot wood oven
  • Bartenders who know what they're doing. Classics are proper, and house cocktails are done well. If you're into whiskey (and you should be), try the Cigarettes & Coffee.
  • The bacon sandwich was incredible. You must LOVE bacon in order to enjoy it. It's very thick, like a thick ham steak. Also, the onion soup is savory. Lots of cheese melted into it. #arcrestaurant
  • Everything on the menu is so delicious. Seriously. Every thing. But... Everyone there makes me feel like an a-hole for being there. A true quandary.
  • Sit at the bar. It great to watch how your food is prepared and cooked.
  • The food is alright. nothing special. The menu lay out is pretentious and reflects the owners' ego. The place might not leave such a sour taste in your mouth if the owners weren't complete pricks!
  • BTW - Try the pig for your main dish - the meatballs are a GREAT appetizer you can share with another person
  • This place was AMAZING. The food is a bit pricey, BUT the quality of the food, the service, even the beer selection are worth the trip. Will be going back
  • Best Bacon ever. The steak sandwich is amazing. The Burger is sooooooo good. Duck tacos amazing. Going for the BLT next trip.
  • The mushrooms are awesome. Plenty of unique types that you probably haven't ever tried before. Mushroom enthusiasts recommended
  • Been here four separate times for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. Food and service is exceptional. Sit at the bar. It is more fun!
  • The burger will change EVERYTHING. Hyperbole, yes, but true. And those cast iron potatoes... Good God. Delicious. Fabulous Steak sandwich also. Such flavor! Wood fired oven is genius.
  • Decor out of a Restoration Hardware catalog and a steak sandwich that will make you forget how unhappy you are with life. Well done, ARC.
  • The porking beans is excellent. Definitely not the one from the can :-)
  • It's probably better than most places you've been in OC/SD. Wedge was best in class. Will be back for the burger & tomahawk. Good Negroni & Cab. Calamari was super tender. Bread=yum
  • Everything is wood fired. Calamari and potatoes are especially good. While red snapper with head and tail is well seasoned and charred. The burger is their flagship and it can feed two.
  • Burger, stacked to the heavens.
