What an awesome place Archibald's is to explore and learn more about historically. The building and environment exude fun and interesting. We were greeted with a smile, seated enthusiastically and our service started off awesome. Let me add that Archibald's has some of THE VERY BEST french fries I have ever had! Drinks were refilled and food arrived with a... More

We really enjoy dining at Archibald's Restaurant at Garnder village for several reasons! Firs the menu has such a wide variety of options that everyone from my picky toddler, teen, mom and dad and grandma can all decide on dishes that make them happy. The halibut fish and chips are my standard go-to but I haven't tried anything from their... More

First off, hats off to Sam, our server. She was wonderful. And the only reason why I give this restaurant a 2. We were there on a very busy night, but there were some things that could not be excused. First off, we were seated in an area that seemed to have been forgotten. One table with 3 screaming kids...

We went to WitchFest at Gardner Village not even planning to eat at Archibald's because it's usually so busy during the festival. But, even during construction, we were able to get right in and be seated without a wait. It was very busy; and sometimes in a restaurant, that makes you wonder how the service will be. But our server... More

This was my third try of Archibalds. I love love love the fried green tomatoes. I've eaten pasta,pot roast sandwich and soup here and they were all mediocre. Nothing special. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was reasonable every time. I just really don't have much excitement about the food. I probably wouldn't come back unless it was... More

We ate with a group of friends, crammed in on 2 tables of different heights, in the overly crowded "round room." We sat there for 10 minutes before we even had glasses of water. Apparently no waitress had been assigned to us. When a waitress appeared, she alone handled the 13 of us. Tonya was efficient at taking our orders,... More

We are regular's at Archibalds because of the great food. Our most recent visit, we discovered that they have a shortened menu just for October, due to the large crowds that are there for Witches night out and other activities. I was pretty disappointed that neither of our favorites were included in the pared down menu, but settled on the... More

Be sure and come hungry. The food was wonderful, the bread fresh and warm. My only complaint was we were in a large room with several large parties so it was very noisy. I would ask for a booth in quieter area.

Service rating is poor due to Manager only. Hostess Monica tried to seat our large group, including sleeping baby in small stroller. The GM, Rick stepped in to say they do not allow strollers. There was no posted sign to indicate this "rule". The hostess again tried to tell the manager where she could easily seat us, including the stroller,... More

This restaurant is located in Gardner Village, an historic pioneer former grist mill and home. There are several little "houses" on the property, each having a different group of items to sell - like quilts, kitchenware etc. The large building, formerly a grist mill still has the water wheel running.

Description
Much more than a cozy little restaurant, Archibald's at Gardner Village in West Jordan, Utah is a place rich in atmosphere and local history.

The main ingredient of our restaurant began over 130 years ago, when Archibald Gardner -- truly a "mover and shaker" of his day -- built this flour mill. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building is home to Archibald's Restaurant and CF Home at Gardner Village.

At Archibald's, you'll find a menu designed with care, imagination and flavor as timeless as old Archibald.
