This restaurant is super! If the coleslaw had some flavoring to go with the fresh cabbage I would definitely call this five stars. The baked beans are over the top with great pepper flavor though not hot, and the meat and other flavors are awesome. And I love the brisket sandwich - moist and flavorful.
I came here because someone told me it was locally owned, but if this is local hospitality you can keep it. I could write a page of how this spiraled down but I won't bore you. I waited an hour with parties who came after me got seated ahead of me. I was forgiving because they were larger parties, but when a table sat empty for five minutes... Even one the waitresses noticed and said I should have been served after all this time. It was a young hostess and it was clear she was following manager's orders because I tried hinting to her that it has been a long wait with no avail. I finally asked to speak to the manager, who was conveniently nowhere to be found. I am assuming it was the middle aged woman who never bothered to look up when I said "hello" at the "hostess" counter when I first checked in. This is basically a burger joint, so nothing special. Also, if patio is your objective there is a nearby restaurant with a deck, and a better angle view of the water and also locally owned. Maybe "hello" there isn't a bad word.
We went on Sunday late afternoon and dined downstairs for the Sunday hamburger special. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Cool vibe downstairs. Our guests ordered hamburgers and rated them as 9/10. I had the chopped romaine salad with shaved sirloin as a low carb option. It hit the spot. My wife had the black bean burger which she said was delicious. Over all a great experience. We would definitely come back.
Great food, very reasonable prices and excellent service... the staff was very friendly am prompt. My family was well taken care of! Will definitely visit every time we’re up this way. Thank you to the staff of Arapahoe cafe!
My boyfriend and I always try to eat here when we're passing through. The food is always consistently delicious and the service is good also. Make sure you save room for dessert! Nothing beats a home made treat.
