Fun place!

My wife and I ate and watched football there for several hours before an event at the Civic Center. The fish taco's were outstanding. We also had the Cheese Fries and they were excellent to munch on with a nice cold beer. Overall a good selection of beer, forgot the name of the local brewery... read more

My most recent visit was Saturday night, October 27. We didn't realize we were walking into a heavily-promoted Halloween costume party, but it really wasn't a problem. My buddy and I found a hi-top back in the corner of the bar area, and that gave us an excellent view of the goings-on. Kudos to our VERY PLEASANT waitress who repeatedly... More

Really like this place, service is always good, and like the food also, have spent week-end nights in the bar area watching sprots, listening to music and just hanging out.

Food was definitely below average. Outside dining was like a smoke stack. Crabcakes were nothing but filler and the jambalaya was terrible. With all the good choices in the downtown area stay away from here.

We walked in - sign said wait to be seated - we waited long enough to read the entire menu - the waitresses could see us standing there - the barteneder saw us waiting there and after 15 minutes - we left. SORRY - should have paid attention to the other comments made on tripadvisor about Awful Arthurs - AWFUL

I love seafood, but this place was only okay. The crab cakes were below par...they were large, which was nice, but only luke warm. The floor was dirty and it was early evening and we were seated at a table that looked right into the kitchen. We did ask for a booth and that was the only area available, however... More

Enjoyed a delightful meal of steamed seafood..one of their samplers on Saturday night. Lovely food and lovely service. Atmosphere was fun, just off the bar area and a ballgame was catching the attention of most patrons. The food was delightfully simple in presentation and was scrumptious. I'd definitely find my way back there again next time I'm in Roanoke! Enjoy... More

Ate outdoors. Not the cleanest place. My salad was very good , and very large. My husbands seafood pasta was very very spicy. Too much spice frankley. A bar and night spot setting. There are better places to eat. But if looking for entertainmnet this could be your place. Live music

Atmosphere looked like it would be good, but the food and service were only average. Going back to Roanoke, Awe might go back but would look elsewhere too.

We had planned to eat here for dinner, but a rainstorm got us off of the streets, and we thought we change our plans to "lunch". The food was good, but the service for a late lunch was indifferent. Our waitress acted like she was doing US a favor by taking our order, then disappeared. (She reappeared to take the... More
