MacArthur Park - Palo Alto

MacArthur Park - An American Experience
For decades, MacArthur Park has been about bringing people together around outstanding California BBQ and comfort food in a casual yet elegant setting.
You’ll find us nestled in the heart of downtown Palo Alto, and walk back in time in to the simplistic elegance of a forgone era in a dining room designed by Julia Morgan in 1918.
We take traditional BBQ on a ride with the richness of California’s bounty, offering our signature Baby Back Ribs, fresh fish, meats and chicken, steak, unique salads and comfort food using local farm fresh produce. Portions are large, and there is something for every taste including vegan and vegetarian choices. Join us for cocktails and dining on our garden patio, nightly.
A good time had by all! That is the spirit of MacArthur Park.

"Hadn't been there in years (retired and no longer commuting to Sun Micro campuses) and acquainted when a client scheduled a lunch meeting at MacArthur Park
Buddies birthday the next week and decided to host a party for five.
They were impressed from the moment we walked in and continued to be impressed with the staff. That the manager stopped by several times to check on our progress and of course the food. My guests thought I was a regular to get that level of attention and had to assure them that it has been years since my last visit!
The seniors dine out all the time and no longer cook. They asked for and received a banquet menu and will be hosting their next dinner at MacArthur Park and am looking forward to that"

"This restaurant was introduced to me about 8 years ago when celebrating my wife's annual Christmas party and sort of stayed in that category for some time while only visiting on special occasions. Since that time it's become a go to place when wanting to feel special, receiving a warm welcome and wonderful service. The staff makes every effort to enhance your experience and meet every expectation. The cuisine is carefully prepared and excites my palette which to me is one of the most important aspects of going out to dinner. The second most important is ambiance and service which this place fits the bill. The overall package is exceptional and a lot of credit goes to the managers who take the time to meet the guests and extend pleasant greeting on every visit. I'm already thinking about my next visit."

"My friend and I ordered the Barbecue for Two and it was delicious, and fit for bigger appetites than we had. The ribs and chicken were perfect, and the sausage was hotter than what appealed to either of us, so it went home to a husband. Also a heads-up; the mud pie had bits of coffee in it, so I couldn't eat mine, but the waitress kindly brought me some fruit. The restaurant was rather empty on this Sunday eve, so it was probably quieter than it may be at other times. The service was very attentive."

"This is one of our favorite local places for a nice dinner. The staff is friendly, they provide excellent service, the ambiance is nice, and the food is always tasty. We especially like their BBQ! They also have an excellent happy hour in the bar area."

"The food is excellent and the people are wonderful. The setting and atmosphere conveys a sense of the Old Palo Alto I knew and loved as a boy. When it is decked out for Christmas it strongly resembles the settings for Bing Crosby's movies "Holiday Inn" and "White Christmas". I make it a point to go there twice a month, and hope we can hold our high school reunion here."
