It's been awhile since we were here. We were there for our wedding anniversary 3-4 years ago and going back for our 25th anniversary over July 4 this year while in Maggie Valley. The food was wonderful and service was outstanding. The owner and my husband struck up a conversation about Ford Mustang's (my husband owns a Mustang and at... More

It has been years, took a friend of mine to J. Arthur's for dinner. It was not too crowded so we decided to sit in the bar. The hostess was pushy and seemed to have an issue of where we wanted to sit which was in a booth. We ordered dinner, had trout for dinner. When it got there, it... More

Ordered medium rare filet. At best it was medium well. With salad and baked potato it was $31. Husband had salmon. Total bill was $80 with one piece of pie and two teas.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at this fine dining establishment. The service was excellent. And the food was superb. My boyfriend's ribs were very tender and fell off of the bones. I had the blackened chicken with pasta and gorgonzola and it was delish. Their blue cheese dressing on their salad was delectable. Will look forward to... More

OK, this place has been a staple of ours since ~1989 whenever passing through this way. Our large family gathered here to have dinner and I just wanted to say that service is still great, the blue cheese salad dressing is still unparalleled,as is the french onion soup is the best ever. Most entrees are still worth raving about. An... More

Food quality was good. Service was above average. A bit pricey but no complaints. It's a little tacky, like a museum of Christmas, otherwise very nicely appointed. We'd go back.

We were greeted at the door by the owner who make us feel like part of the family. The food and decor were exceptional and... More

A friend and I stopped here after spending the day at Harrah's. It was after Christmas and the place was beautifully decorated. They had the largest tree I have ever seen. They weren't very busy when we arrived so I could not figure out why the service was so slow. I didn't think it was our waitress fault and she... More
