There is a lot on the menu at The Armview, but the salads more than hold their own. There's always some ingredient here that punches through and makes the dish sing in your mouth: The baby spinach salad has grilled pear and honey-sherry vinaigrette, and the quinoa salad has cilantro, lime and seared scallops. The vibe is retro-diner and friendly, and certain nights of the week feature DJs and musical performances.
This family-friendly local favourite is a fantastic spot to host a kids' party, having plenty of booths and table seating, and serving up classics like fish and chips, Angus burgers, ribs and chicken, and milkshakes. Make the birthday star feel special with a traditional Shirley Temple! Don't worry about the noise from a large, boisterous gang – the super friendly servers here welcome the energy of any celebration! There's also a private room that can be reserved for a group of about 15 diners.
Burger lovers, you’ve found your perfect match. This chic, retro diner right at the Armdale Rotary (and overlooking the picturesque Northwest Arm) is inexpensive and delicious, making it exactly where you want to go if you’re hosting a business lunch on a budget. This kid-friendly spot is popular with families, but you should be able to avoid unruly children during the workweek.
