Went here the advice to two people to sample the French Onion Soup. It did not disappoint. Had a salad with it. Be advised that a salad here is easily large enough to split two ways.

This was a great find at the last minute. We drove by on the way up to Harrah's and stopped in on the way back. Good food, good prices. Service was a little slow to start, but picked right up. Will definitely go back!!

The Gorgonzola salad with blackened steak is delicious! The atmosphere is warm and inviting. My husband's prime rub sandwich was excellent as well!

We ate at J. Arthur's our last night in Maggie Valley. It was average at best, and far more expensive than the food deserved. My husband and brother-in-law paid in excess of $20 for what turned out to be a Sagebrush restaurant steak. Quite disappointed...More

The restaurant itself is very nice and clean, with professional staff. I personally felt it was quite expensive and the food we ordered wasn't impressive. I found several other restaurants in Maggie Valley to be better, and at better prices.More
