Description: Come for the food, stay for the fun! Awful Arthur's has been serving up some of Southwest Virginia's finest seafood ever since the Historic Downtown Roanoke location opened in 1994. Boasting an abundant supply of fresh fish and Roanoke's most complete raw bar, as well as steaks, pastas, salads and sandwiches, there's no better place to enjoy the big game or catch local music and live entertainment. We also have Diamond pool tables in the pool room, free WiFi and outside patio dining. Shuckin' seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Check out our website to see what's happening this month.

I was in town on business and decided to get some seafood. Awful Arthur's was the place to go. I had the fried seafood platter ( shrimp and scallops). The platter was hot and cooked perfectly. Also had a cold beer which hit the spot.

If you are in Roanoke and want some great seafood, give Awful Arthur's a try.

Great for hearing some music with better than average seafood. The steamed shrimp are always a good choice and the beer is cold. But it does smell like a bar.

We had good seafood and great service. Bethany was our server and did a superb job. I had the crab soup, it was outstanding. The shrimp salad was very good. Hubby had the Comidore platter. It was cooked to perfection. We would recommend and we would return.

A nice restaurant - prices were pretty reasonable .. The service was a little slow even though it wasn't that busy . Oysters were so so and they ran out of scallops but food overall was pretty good

Awful Arthur's has been one of our favorite weekend lunch places for a long time and I've complimented them in the past. But today we learned they have cut down their lunch menu by about 75% - the selections are VERY limited and NOT a good reflection of what they have to offer. This may be a cost-saving plan - but our server told us today that three tables had walked out because of the lack of options. They are alienating their customer base and if the menu stays as it is - we will find another lunch location. Come on Guys - Wake Up!
