I used to live near Maggie Valley about 20 years ago and enjoyed J.Arthur's at that time very much so I was very apprehensive to go back there due to the possibility of being disappointed. It is a lovely looking restaurant from the outside and my husband, who had never been there, wanted to try it. Unbeknownst to me, he made the reservations, went to a bakery and ordered a birthday cake for me, picked up the cake on the day of our reservation and took it to the restaurant. It was way before the opening hour and yet he was invited in by someone on the staff and he took the cake to keep until that evening. After a wonderful dinner with our friends, several of the wait staff came out with the lovely cake singing Happy Birthday. It was a very pleasant surprise.... not only wonderful food but such gracious people who work there.
