Arthur’s Steak House Announces Closure — Owners Remodeling the Building

Written by:

Arthur’s Steak House – located at 237 Washington Street – announced that its last day of service will be on Sunday, January 30th, as the restaurant will be closing for renovations. This is not goodbye, the restaurant will be saving the historical part of the building and putting an addition on to make it more modern before reopening.

The steakhouse has become a longstanding staple of Hoboken, starting service in the mid-1980s as one of the first of its kind in the area. Current owners David and Wanda Jacey bought Arthur’s in 2011, and David also owns Mills Tavern and Black Bear Bar and Grill. Arthur’s is best known for its “famous” garlic bread, griddled potatoes, French onion soup, and Arthur’s Famous Cheeseburger.

The laid-back, casual restaurant has a sweet and simple menu, not a lot of items but the great quality overweighs all. Along with the most popular dishes, there’s also a 24-ounce ribeye and a 16-ounce New York strip (of course!), along with lighter options like a classic wedge salad.

Arthur’s is also known to be haunted according to employees, with reports of footsteps, flickering lights, whispers, and more spine-chilling occasions to prove it. But all in all, the restaurant is loved by residents and non-residents alike.
