J. Arthur's Restaurant, Maggie Valley, NC


IF you ever get to Maggie Valley, we highly recommend dinner at J. Arthur's Restaurant. Our group of four friends ate dinner at this restaurant on Thursday evening. Here are some pictures of us and the restaurant.



Three of us enjoyed Rainbow Trout and the other one had Shrimp. Delicious!



The Fall decorations inside the restaurant are above the fireplace. Pretty, aren't they????



More Halloween decorations at J. Arthur's Restaurant

Here's another picture of the outside of J. Arthur's Restaurant.



Here's one more picture of three full gals... From left to right: Nita, Reida, and Susan. I took the picture. Dinner was great... Nita recommends the French Onion soup. I recommend the home-made blue cheese dressing for your salad. We had a great time!!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday. I'm a 'happy camper' today ---since I will get to see my Sweetheart--and get to sleep in my own bed tonight. The vacation with my friends has been wonderful --but I've missed George SO much.

On another note, my Tennessee Vols ALMOST beat the Number 1 Alabama Crimson Tide yesterday.... It was a nail-biter----and even though they lost, I'm proud of 'my' young team.


Hugs,
Betsy

Lovely to catch up with you! Thanks for sharing about your amazing time with your dear friends! We're away from home right now too! As much as we love being with family - there's no place like sleeping in one's own bed! Hugs, Karin

The restaurant was very warmly decorated, very inviting! There is nothing like returning to one's home and own bed, is there?

Arkansas Patti said...

Please tell me that wasn't a Christmas tree. I know you are glad to be home. No matter how nice the visit, home is always great.
Know how you feel about the Vols. My Hogs last week "almost"beat the then #1 Gators. They don't have to win for us to be proud.

Nance said...

Lovely restaurant indeed!...inside and out. I love the sign that says, Welcome, leaf watchers! lol
Bet your George missed you too! Home sweet home!

Janie said...

I'm glad you had fun with the girls, but I'm sure George will be very happy to have you home.

Bird Girl said...

I am not surprised that you have missed your George ;-) But a nice place to eat and fun with friends can't be beat either, right?

Cookie said...

I love french onion soup, especially when someone else makes it! looks like fun and I know what you mean about being glad to be home with hubby and your own bed!
I have an award for you at my blog :)

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

The food sounds so good. I am glad you had a good time and get to see your wonderful husband...m.

That looks like a great place for dinner. Decorated so nicely! I'm glad you enjoyed your friends. Re: the Vols... guess the Tide "rolled"... eh? A young team is good, because so many wins are ahead of them as they grow more cohesive. They will win a lot in the future.
