Good food. Server seemed new.

The catfish was good, but not great. The couple next to us had a burger and onion rings that looked really, really good. I think I just picked the wrong thing. I'd like to go again and try something different.

Every so often my Mother wants to go to J. Arthurs for the prime rib. I an happy to go along because I crave the Gorgonzola Salad - and it is the best of any I have had anywhere. They have a full bar and if you come too late for the dining room - sometimes you can get a... More

We stopped in close to 9pm, the server was working her butt off! The prices were kinda high, so we just had burgers at $12.00 a piece. They were tasty, and the fries were good too. So overall, it is over priced, but the service was very good.

My family had a lovely dinner on a Saturday night at J. Arthur's. My husband had a 10 oz prime rib and I had the shrimp and grits. Amazing food and fabulous service. Our server was Hunter and he was so affable and took great care of our family of four.

As locals, we eat here at least twice a month, if not more. We are never disappointed. Neither are our three children! Great place! Lots of options. So glad they are close to home. Yummy indeed!

The menu is varied, something for everyone. The service is friendly and informative. We had three courses and wine - everything was good, not great.

Admittedly, we had a large group, 11 adults and 3 kids, and did not have a reservation for Friday night, April 10th. I realize that Maggie Valley basically closes from about late Feb through the middle of April, but it's my understanding that this restaurant was open the whole time. When we arrived, the lady at the hostess station seemed... More

The building is so charming and the ambiance is exactly what you hope for in. Mountain lodge. The food is decent--but we felt is was overpriced for the quality.

We loved the prime rib and the fried shrimp was cooked to perfection. It was so great that we went back the next night. Great service and great food.

Ok, not the best. Had slow service many times. Generic food.good enough but over priced for what it is. Go to bourbon and barrel if you want good food
