As orphans on the storm Florence we are in Roanoke a favorite place. Arthur’s is a great local downtown spot with fantastic 2-4-1 deals and super fresh seafood. Good service. Reasonable prices. Good bar. Check it out

We went there Wednesday for 2-4-1 oyster special. Ordered 6 dozen, 2 order of crab, and some shrimp. Enough for 5 of us, but had to order key lime pie - which was also great. Roanoke is not a sea food place, but it is great place to have a few beer with messy shellfish speical

Went in on a Wednesday, 4th of July. Regular cook must have been off. Service was great, (thank you Rachael), but food was horrible. Ordered a couple of cocktails which were fine and fairly priced, $6. Started with the Caesar side salad, which was very good. Then things went downhill. Ordered the Sesame Ahi Tuna. Ordered rare, came out way overdone and tough. Ordered the The Jumbo Shrimp with Arthur's Little Kick Sauce. Way underdone. Scary underdone. Didn't finish anything but the drinks and the salad. There are plenty of great places in downtown Roanoke. This isn't one of them.

We went to the Aweful Arthur’s in Salem and found it to be appropriately named. It was so loud, we couldn’t have a conversation. The bar patrons were very intoxicated and rowdy. Loud is an understatement. We had the Oysters Rockefeller and one of the seafood combos. Within hours I was regretting my decision. Enough said.

Hey Amy, We are sorry that we didn't live up to your standards yesterday. Perhaps your party would have been better off sitting in the dining room where the music isn't as loud and the patrons not as boisterous. Alcohol responsibility is something we take very serious, we would very much like some more feedback on exactly what you saw as it will be looked into. In a seafood restaurant I'm sure you can understand that we also take the utmost precautions when receiving, handling, and serving any seafood and shellfish in particular. Although this is the first incident we have heard to date of someone getting sick we will also be looking into this. Amy it doesn't look like we will be able to win you back with such a negative review, but we do appreciate it. We value all feedback as we continue to improve our brand. Thank you for taking the time. If you can give anymore details please email us at AwfulsSalem@gmail.com.
