We take pride in 39 years of delivering genuine service, skillfully prepared local products and spectacular views on the waterfront. Enjoy the best that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Arnies Restaurants began in 1979, when Peter Challman and Robert Peterson, two graduates of the Washington State University Hotel and Restaurant Administration program, had a vision for a Pacific Northwest restaurant. During this time, trends in dining leaned toward steak and seafood restaurants. Arnies was an instant success with its cozy atmosphere, view of Puget Sound, great food and friendly service! Our brand statement in those days was "The way you knew it could be" versus today's "Giving genuine service and creating Pacific Northwest favorites with pride." Arnie's Mukilteos' success enabled the opening of the Edmonds location in 1981. Located at the marina overlooking the ferry to the Olympic Peninsula. Edmonds location was slightly larger than Mukilteo, featuring the same mid-pricing with a steak and seafood focused menu.
