My meal was good too...not the best I've ever eaten though. Our server was very nice and attentive as well. We ordered onion... More

We had dinner there for our anniversary, the service was great. The prime rib and filet were great. The restaurant is always decorated beautifully around the holidays. The food is a little pricey but always good when we stop there.

We stopped by for an early dinner before heading home after a day of riding. The food was good, the service was good and the cost seemed about average. We had never been to J.Arthur's before and were pleasantly surprised that it was a casual restaurant with an event space upstairs. We look forward to stopping in again when we... More

You can get steak, seafood, pasta or a good burger. I shared an entree and salad with my mom and we were stuffed. The cheesesticks are to die for. World famous. It is normally not a wait and the inside of the building is a lodge with a working train up top. Great service and mid priced. Kids menu too.

The Caesar salad is HUGE!! We split it, and still took a to-go box! I had French Onion soup, which was AMAZING. Our waiter was very personable without being overbearing, and it was a very enjoyable dinner experience.

We have eaten here over the last few years and personally have not had a meal to complain about. We have eaten from the majority of the menu so there isn't much we haven't tried. The staff have always gone out of their way to make sure our visit was pleasant.
