My husband I visited 4/2 and were not impressed. Our waitress was awesome, I will say that, but the food and atmosphere were not what we expected. Also, why would we pay $30.99 for a NY strip steak that was on "special" for $13.99. The reviews make it sound wonderful, but we will not be going back.

We live in Maggie Valley, and have decided J Arthur's is the best of all the restaurants there. It is our go to place for a good evening, and great martini, and a fabulous Prime Rib!

Food was good to taste just a little pricey especially for the portion sizes. The booths were also a very tight squeeze.

This restaurant is more of an upscale type. You dont have to wear fancy clothes though, but when you step in you can feel the fancier atmosphere. Our waiter was excellent, I ordered the Gorgonzola Chicken Pasta it was DELICIOUS! I also had the mud pie, best dessert ever! Oh and the bartender is very generous with the alcohol!

Stopped in there on a thursday afternoon waiting for the snow to come. We seemed to be the only guests in the restaurant. Brenda was amazing. Sat us by the fire place. Wonderful view so we could see the snow falling out of the window. Inquired about the prime rib, but she said what they were cooking was medium and... More

So we ( my 8 yr old son and I) went to visit some friends in town and decided to lunch here. The menu was nice, a little bit of everything. The special was fried oysters and my son was ecstatic till we were told they had sold out. No worries, he was just as excited about having ribs. We... More
