Our server was fantastic, but overworked. He had too many tables in my opinion. As a former server and manager I see things many people don't. The food was great although my trout portion seemed small. The steaks were cooked great, the salmon was awesome, the meatloaf was terrific according to the... read more

Great people and great staff! We had the ribeye and cheese sticks. The ribeye was great but something about those cheese sticks was magical. Is that even possible? We always enjoy J Arthurs during our MV visits. Highly recommended.

I'll start by saying that the restaurant itself is very clean and nicely decorated. The food was just okay. Not horrible by any means, but nothing special either. Service was also VERY slow. Maybe it was just an off night. One time was enough for us, due to the fact that it was pretty expensive compared to other places we've... More

Nice bar and atmosphere in restaurant. Nice staff. Food was excellent too, but the kitchen closed at 8:30, way to early for a tourist town.

After four days in Maggie Valley we found this gem. Susan C. was our waitress and her service was phenomenal. Attentive and on par with pacing the meal. We had the trout special that was very good and the pork chop dinner. Salads were fabulous as well! If we were staying longer, we would definitely go back! Great meal. Great... More

After finishing our meals, we were ask to leave in a heavy rain storm to make a parking space available. If we had umbrellas and were traveling in a car, this might be acceptable. However, we were traveling by motorcycles!!! The storm was so bad it was not safe to drive in a car not to mention the danger we... More

I'm surprised and confused with your review. We would NEVER ask anyone to leave our establishment unless a guest was intoxicated or mistreating employees verbally or physically. Please contact me to discuss this further 8289261817. If this is the case, this employee will be terminated. Thank you More

We drove the Blue Ridge Highway out of the Great Smoky National Park on the way to Asheville. We were looking for a place to stop for lunch. This is a nice looking restaurant and it was busy. We checked the menu for gluten free options and decided to eat there. B My companion had an Angus burger and fries.... More

My husband and I were in the area for our wedding anniversary, and didn't really have a plan of where to have dinner. This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We got there at a busy time, and had to wait a little while for a table. There were quite a few people waiting along with us, including... More
