Arnold Palmer's Restaurant Restaurant Review: How fitting that an area known for its golf courses and fairways would have a restaurant owned by one of the world’s most renowned golfers. Arnie Palmer’s, as it’s called by locals, is the 19th hole and a place to enjoy happy hour in the cozy pub. When it comes to a full meal, guests retreat to dining areas appropriately named the Masters Room, the British Open Room and the U.S. Open Room, as well as one named for the proprietor and another simply called the Wine Room, showcasing some 2,000 bottles. The menu features aged beef, fresh seafood and vegetarian selections that make this an upscale dining experience. There are comfort foods, too, such as meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy or buttermilk-fried chicken, as well as more contemporary offerings like baked crêpes with wild mushrooms, marinara and ricotta. The 30-ounce “Kings Cut” porterhouse steak is designed for two (even three could share this generous slab of beef), and comes with sautéed mushrooms and lobster pasta. There's plenty of beer on tap, wines by the glass or bottle, and a full range of spirits. Desserts, perhaps fried rice pudding arancini, pair nicely with one of the ports.
