Arrived at the Crystal Bridges Museum around 11:15, shortly after they opened. Toured some galleries first and then ate around noon. Eleven is in a giant, domed, glass-enclosed building with attentive staff. Food stations are at either end and you order your food there, get a number, choose a table and try to make conversation in the midst of the... More

Spent three days at Crystal Bridges and ate three meals in the restaurant. You que up to order but they bring your food to the table. Everything was nicely presented and yummy. The hamburger was delicious and I hardly eat burgers. The Caesar salad and the salmon plate, excellent. My husband had the boneless short ribs and cleared his plate!... More

We ate at Eleven, which is the cafeteria inside Crystal Bridges. We ordered the shrimp & grits which sounded fantastic. It wasn't. 4 average sized shrimp with tails on in very soupy grits for $14. They actually serve it in a bowl with a spoon. Not very satisfying. We also had one of their salads, but it was just average.... More

The visual setting (over a river, beautiful lighting, architecturally interesting) is not surpassed for this area. The menu is changed frequently, but always features local, seasonal items. I was pleased to see several vegetarian/vegan selections as well as heartier fare.

Eleven is all about atmosphere, situated in the center of the magnificent Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Completely surrounded by glass under a curved cedar ceiling, this is museum dining at its best. A varied menu, priced reasonably, offers all sized choices served by friendly staff. When spending a whole day at this museum it is nice to have... More

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is spectacular in the evening so do what we did, and that was to combine a tour with dinner. Dinner was exceptional. First rate. Quite likely the best dining available in Bentonville, for fine cuisine, and in a spectacular surrounding.

Eleven has unbelievable atmosphere... Set in the windowed copper topped middle of the creek section of crystal bridges... Food is good, but don't expect to be served... It's a walk up line to order with limited selections and you food is brought out at least for lunch.

The view from the floor to ceiling windows is beautiful! It is in the middle of the museum so it is a very convenient stop. All this makes up for the fast-food -like ordering and small lunch menu.

The glass setting is beautiful but it is a large space and noisy. There are often school children eating there as well. I had the chef's special steak wrap. It was more onion than steak and pretty much inedible. My friend had the Southwest chili and found it very good. Another friend had the bean soup and cornbread and though... More

Three of us for lunch. Each ad something different and it was all wonderful. Tables overlooking the pond area was very enjoyable.
