Eating lunch at Eleven was a lovely experience last Friday; the food was very good and likely enhanced by the remarkable atmosphere of the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art. While a walk-up order system is utilized, the staff is very knowledgeable about the menu, offering helpful suggestions. All-in-all, planning your visit to Crystal Bridges around a lunch or coffee break... More

Eleven is so convenient when you're visiting Crystal Bridges, and has gotten such great reviews, I expected to love it. My "Pho dog" sounded adventurous, but it was just OK. A frankfurter covered with an interesting mix of basil, bean sprouts, mint, etc. The service was good, the space is attractive, and the food was...fine. Not great, but fine.

Not only is Crystal Bridges a first-class museum, but it also contains a first-class eating venue. Eleven offers a unique menu of original culinary offerings prepared with fresh, often local, ingredients, and served quickly and enthusiastically by a crack staff of servers.

After three hours of touring Crystal Bridges, we chose to eat in the in house restaurant and were not disappointed, although lunch is self-service the staff was helpful and the food delivered quickly to our table, Don't pass up the opportunity!

The food here is not the boring tea room and museum court yard fare usually found at a museum. The menu blends a few items that your picky children will eat, but also mixes in some mildly-sophisticated items and Ozarks traditional items. Where else can you find an delicious harvest salad and ham and beans on the same menu? The... More

We live in central Missouri and drive to Crystal Bridges Museum of American art in Bentonville Arkansas twice a year. We always make a reservation at Eleven, the museums marvelous restaurant which is housed within one of the brilliantly designed glass and pine shells that sit like turtles in Crystal springs where the museum is situated. What an experience...the food... More

This restaurant has fun local menu items like Ozark wedding soup, shrimp and grits, and beans and cornbread, but it also has stuff for the kids like cheeseburgers and polish sausage hot dogs with homemade chips on the side. Everything tasted great and the atmosphere is beautiful with a view of the water and the architecture of the museum. Order... More

We stopped by Eleven prior to an event we were going to at CB during the Wed and Fri happy hour event. Selected appetizers and drinks for $5 each. Beautiful presentation & great tasting (deviled eggs, arancini & bruschetta), but don't plan to fill up. Wine by the glass that night was excellent as was the one cocktail ordered. Waiter... More

After your walk through the numerous art exhibits take the time to sit enjoy the beauty of the museum's setting and architectural design. This is a wonderful excuse to get a bite to eat and a drink to sit and take it all in. In too many museums you are dispatched to sub basements or unused windowless corners to get... More

The Eleven Burger is the best everything on the menu is good. There is a long line at meal times so eating at off times is recommended. The staff suggests that you help yourself to refills on drinks without waiting in the line. Sitting & eating is pretty much a necessity to give your eyes & mind a break from... More
