Clean, sporty, great service, good food & decent prices. I sat outside right on the street. It was such a beautiful day! Inside looks inviting & sports-minded, but not loud. I had Jambalaya. It contained shrimp, Andoule sausage and scallops. Spicy & good tasting. Would consider going back.

Arthur's is more of a bar that sells food than a restaurant . At 7:30 pm on a Friday night, we had a band setting up behind our table and, even though the band hadn't started playing yet, the place was very loud. The beer was good, the food was okay, the prices were average for bar food. The Ladies... More

We happened on this place by accident....we were a group of 30 and after attempting several other places in the downtown area that could not accommodate our large party we were referred here. They sat us in the large party room where there are several pool tables and the seating is bar table style which was great for our large... More

We had dinner at Awful Arthurs on a Saturday night during a late June visit to Roanoke. It is right downtown, at the heart of the historic downtown area. There were lots of nice-looking restaurants all clustered in the same area and we decided on Awful Arthurs as we thought seafood would be a nice change of pace. In hindsight,... More

A very loud establishment which needs to make up its mind if it's a sports bar (with the loudest TV) or a seafood restaurant as the name and web site claim it to be. We had dinner there on a Sunday night while traveling through Roanoke. The table was wet and dirty which our host did not clean, but they... More
