Great food and service...just noisy

Good menu choice dominated by fish but other options too. Food freshly prepared and large portions at a reasonable price. Service efficient and friendly. Large public 'pub style' eating area with lots of duke-box and TV noise

We picked Awful Arthur's because I was in the mood for seafood, but we should have turned around and left. Definitely a dive bar atmosphere which might be fun on a Saturday night but it didn't make the grade for dinner. The menus were ripped, the table was sticky, and the food was mediocre. The worst part was when an... More

I would not recommend this restaurant due to the quality of the food, the quality of the service and the high prices. We ordered an appetizer and two entrees, they came out about the same time and the appetizer was still warm but the other two dishes were not. The blond waitress had to ask the manager if it was...

Great lunch. Great service. The waitress was very friendly and informative. The lunch menu was great and affordable . I had a tuna steak with a blue cheese cream sauce. It was delicious. The outdoor seating area is charming and offers a great view of the city center.

The bar is rustic and not fancy. Beer and fried foods are a great mixture. I had the "Awful Arthur's" Awful Platter with Blackened Fish and Shrimp. It was good

Stopped by after a first fridays night. They had a great band (Hard drive). Drinks were served very quickly and reasonably priced. Late night bar food was good too!

We visited Roanoke and were told that Awful Arthur's was a good place for some seafood. We tried both the New England Clam Chowder and the Pepperjack Clam soup. Both were outstanding! The scallops were tender and flavorful. The grilled shrimp was cooked just right - tender with a nice flavor without being overcooked. The service was quick and our... More

fantastic seafood. The atmosphere was casual, with a large selection of beer on tap. The live entertainment was good, the waitstaff was friendly.

I arrived shortly after 9:00 p.m. on a Saturday night -- following my daughter's 12 hour dance competition at the Jefferson Center. I told the host we were "Two for dinner" and he offered us a table in the "back", where he said it would be less crowded. The "back" turned out to be the pool hall section of the... More

This great eatery/pub will garner repeat visits! Centrally located, it provides consistently good seafood and craft brews! Christmas and St. Patrick's Day are crowd favorites!
