We have been going to Maggie Valley for years but had never been to J. Arthur's, so we decided that this was the time to try it. Our server was very pleasant and helpful, making suggestions to help us decide what to try. My friend and I had salmon..hers was grilled and mine was blackened. My husband had the prime... More

I think my title says it all! There were three of us dining, and we all agreed the quality and quantity of our meals were wonderful. I personally recommend the trout. The next time we are in the area, we'll be dining here again.

I enjoyed salmon, baked potato, and a salad, all of which were good. My wife on the other hand had the Roasted Vegetable Strudel made with goat cheese, vegetables, and filo dough that she absolutely loved. She’s talked about a few times since our visit and I see us going back again in the future just so she can have... More

We were recommended to eat dinner here from the hotel we were staying at. So with a very nice 15 percent off coupon that was given to us by our hotel we decided to try. It. It was wonderful. We had the prime rib and. It was excellent along with all our sides. We will definitely be going back.

We were looking for a quick place to eat. Saw a billboard advertising J Arthur's. Prime Rib was the best we had. Baked sweet potato was done just right. Salads were fresh and amazingly large. Portions were plenty. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were lost, and they gave us directions after serving us an excellent meal. We... More

We stopped in on Sunday afternoon, in time for the early bird specials. The decor is very classy; knotty pine with a massive fireplace. Our server, Ariel, was very attentive and helpful. The meal was excellent; I had basa (like tilapia) on cheesy grits over a mild molasses sauce and it was the best! My wife had a nice shrimp... More

I'm a few days late on review but taking the time now since we really enjoyed J Arthurs so much. We actually missed it when looking for it but had heard so many great things that we turned around to look again! Glad we did! It's a big but cozy place with several fireplaces and a big bar too.

In Maggie Valley if you want a classy, this is the place! Great menu with lots of variety. Well prepared food and impeccable service in a cozy and well appointed place. Plenty of parking in a very nice location. Don't miss it! We never do when In the area. We think it is even worth a short drive when necessary.

We stopped in here on a Saturday to take advantage of the Early Bird Dinner after skiing at Cataloochee. We had an excellent meal and an excellent server (Hunter). The early bird dinner is offered between 4:30-6:00pm and is a very good value which includes a main dish, side, rolls, soup/salad, and dessert for around $15/person. The atmosphere of the... More
