I am local and take visitors to the restaurant quite often. The restaurant and view of the river are amazing. The decor is also a lot of fun to look at. Last time I took friends there for breakfast the wait staff was not friendly and down right rude. The waiter was very curt. There was only one other table... More

My brother came down from St Louis and my sister & her husband came up from Dallas in their motorhome. We thoroughly enjoyed Cabin #1 at the end - quiet, peaceful, great river view- with a big fireplace. We had three great meals at the restaurant overlooking the river. Trout was delicious. Service was excellent (Dee & Cindy). Our one... More

We stumbled upon Gaston's restaurant when we were touring the Bull Shoals area. It was our 40th anniversary and we had spent a few days on the Buffalo River. It was Sunday and the brunch buffet was available. It was such a treat. The views were lovely. The service was excellent. The food was very good. I wish I had... More

Dined at Gaston's on 9-8-14. I don't mind paying for well prepared food...BUT, $40.00 for a 4oz Filet is a bit much. That is $160.00 per pound. In addition, they now charge $6.50 for their once free with meals, salad bar. Other dinner entrees were high, but nothing in relationship to the filet. We could have had dinner at Ashley's... More

If you want to get away, relax, be surrounded by the most friendly folks in AR, go to Gaston's and get Richie for a guide.. The restaurant is wonderful, great food and service. If you catch fish (and you will) the restaurant will cook them for you to your order.

Like stepping back in time, Gaston's hasn't changed much over the years, yet is impeccably maintained. Simple cottages right on the bank of the White River, fine dining surrounded by antiques, a well stocked gift shop, beautiful grounds, and a cool pool to dip in on hot summer days. And, excellent trout fishing right out in front of the resort!... More
