Arties's

Since 1978, Fairfax City's most popular restaurant. Enjoy boathouse favorites surrounded by handcrafted wooden boat scale models and Jack Gable's view of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Located in an aging shopping center in Fairfax, Artie's is a member of the excellent American Restaurant Group which includes Coastal Flats and Sweet waters. Reservations are a good idea because even at lunch on a midweek day the restaurant was very busy. The menu is diverse with accommodation for gluten allergies. Husband had a delicious pasta and my fresh sea bass with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus was perfectly prepared.

I have been a Cheesecake factory fan since I first lived in LA more years ago. My recent visit was disappointing. Although the staff were friendly the food was disappointing. The chicken taquitos was over cooked and burnt and then the chicken in my chicken, mango and avocado salad was also over grilled and burnt. I was there early just before 6:00 p.m. so it was not crowded/busy - therefore there was no excuse for food to come out burnt. So NEVER AGAIN...I'M DONE WITH THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY!

We couldn’t think of a better way to end Clifton Day than to have dinner here. The Cocktails were perfect, we wouldn’t expect anything less. Banda Bing Shrimp is wonderful and the Lobster Ravioli is excellent. Last but not least the Ribeye was done to a turn.

My first experience at Duck Donuts was in Charlottesville, VA in October. When I returned to VA, I immediately located another in Fairfax for the most delicious donuts! I love being able to create my own donut and nothing beats eating a warm donut! Everyone must give them a try! Dear Duck Donuts-how about opening a location in CA? We could use you!

Coastal Flats

Reviewed By jingjing2x - Centreville, Virginia

This is my new go to restaurant in Fairfax corner. Short wait for tables. The service was fast and efficient. The menu is mostly seafood but also offers meat selections steak, chicken and burger. I ordered the Hongkong style seabass and tasted delicious. I wish they offer non seafood items for appetizer.
