A group of ten walked from our hotel to this restaurant. Was lovely inside, with a wondrous wait staff. Very accommodating.

We took a short break from the Wheels Through Time museum for lunch. The place they recommended had a line out the door, and with two small kids and a husband who likes to eat...that just doesn't work. This restaurant was centrally located and a large venue. The food was very good. The hamburgers my husband and daughter ate were... More

Great food, great service! This was our second time in three trips eating there. It was even better the second time around. They seated our group of 21 in no time. The wait staff was friendly and the food was awesome!

We choose this restaurant on the recommendations of others on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. We did have to wait 15-20 minutes for a table but it was well worth it. I ordered the ribs and they were fall off the bone tender, my husband and 1 of my sons ordered the steaks and they were fork tender and... More

Steak is the specially here. The ambiance of a log cabin with the warmth of a country home dinner served up in style. The steaks are really good as is the salads. You will enjoy eating here in Maggie Valley NC.

The was the perfect dinner for our last night staying at the Boyd Mountain Log Cabins. We were looking for something special but not too expensive and being there in late April we were glad we found J. Arthur's. We both had steak which was very good. The salads were just perfect, and the desserts were great as well. Our... More

J. Arther's has been in Maggie Valley for a long time and there is a reason for that. Their food is excellent, however it is a little more expensive than most in the Valley. It is a restaurant that you would want to go to for a special occasion. We love their steaks!

We come from Charleston, SC and found better tasting Shrimp & Grits in the Smokey Mountains in Maggie Valley, NC at J. Arthur's Restaurant. They have a top notch Chef for sure!!! We have ate there several times, the Steaks are perfect, the Rainbow Trout is melt-in-your-mouth good!!! We always eat here when we are in Maggie Valley, NC.

My boyfriend and I were staying in Maggie Valley and looking for a great local place to dine. Well, we definitely found one. J Arthur's was a great choice. The staff was friendly, the wine selection was decent and the food was great. I got the chicken Caesar salad and the grilled chicken was seasoned perfectly, the greens were fresh... More
