Description: Serving Maggie Valley for 32 years, our family has been in the restaurant business since 1935 with over 20 restaurants (Manero's) both on the East coast and in south Florida. We are know for our succulent prime rib, steaks, Gorgonzola cheese salad as well as our French onion soup and homemade cheese sticks. We are a casual upscale steakhouse which also serves a variety of seafood, chicken, pork, pasta, salads and well as burgers and a variety of incredible appetizers. We have a full bar and serve dinner both in our lounge as well as our dining room. We also have a loft which seats 55 and a private banquet room which seats 25. In the summer and fall, we serve on our patio on weekends. We cater to groups of all sizes both at our establishment and in local parks, homes and a variety of settings and have done groups up to 1300. We love to serve families and have a kids section for children as well as two functioning trains which delight the young at heart in our dining room.

My family ate at J Arthurs Dec 30th, 2017. The main dining room was beautifully decorated with a huge Christmas tree. When we arrived the restaurant was very busy, but we were sat within 15min. Our waitress was great! My husband ordered the pork chops, I had the NY Strip and my kids had the Mountain Trout and a cheeseburger. We all loved the food. The dinner rolls are amazing! My son loved the tomato jam so much that we bought a jar to bring home.
The prices are reasonable, but a little on the higher side. Well worth it for a very nice dinner!
Would recommend and will definitely go back if we are in Maggie Valley again!

I was happy we were seated very quickly. It felt like a table waiting for us right by the fireplace. The Ambiance of the restaurant was great for the holidays. However, service was horrible. Portion sizes were pretty disgraceful for a holiday. Folks that I was with had a traditional turkey dinner that was overflowing on the plate. I had salmon which was about the size of my thumb. 3 bites and it was gone. Based on my meal I thought it was overpriced and only so-so.

Ate there Christmas eve. Service was very good. Food delivered quickly. Salad that came with entre was disappointing. Chopped iceberg lettuce with one hard wedge of tomato,a few croutons, a super thick red onion ring on a to small plate. Gorgonzola dressing was lacking flavor. Had Chicken Parmesan. That was very good although portion was small for price. No vegetable came with it. Just a dinner role. All in all, atmosphere is nice, service was very good.

We are so thankful and so grateful for the amazing event that J.Arthurs had for us for our reception. Donna did an exceptional job arranging every last detail for us and the service was absolutely spectacular. Our lead server was Bridgett and she was phenomenal. Our guests were extremely satisfied with our menu and raved about the food. We have nothing but good and positive things to say about J. Arthur’s and will absolutely be back many many times. I cannot begin to express how perfect everything was! The service phenomenal and the food spectacular! The owners are amazing people and made sure we were happy and satisfied! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!

The dining area looked so festive and homey we were happy to wait the 25 minutes we were told was the wait time. However, after 45 minutes we were led to a dingy backroom bar to be seated. So disappointing! We heard the hostess tell several people they had a wedding party upstairs and only one server!! We left and went down to the road to Frankies, which was also busy but had the waitstaff to quickly seat us, service was great and food excellent ...won't be back to J Arthur's!

We are in business to make all our guests delighted with their experience. We were extremely busy Saturday night and apologize for the wait / that being said I personally offered to move you to the dining room once you decided you did not want to sit in the bar but you chose not to move. Since you never stayed it is a little disingenuous for you to say that you had bad service. No one has any ever called our bar anything but upbeat and especially now with all the Christmas decor, this comes as a little surprise. We are glad that you ended up having a good night.
