A nice family celebration became disastrous when we were double billed....lied to by the manager who said the waitress had not sent through a second billing for our table of six. Then an additional $90.99 was charged to our credit card which was dismissed as belonging to another customer (?) who had supposedly used a different a completely different credit... More

I do a lot of entertaining, so when I get corporate exec's from out of town, this is where I always go. It captures the essence of Bentonville. This is one of Sam's favorite spots back in the day. I recommend the Fred's Steak and have the BBQ sampler brought out for Dessert. I like sitting in the bar, but... More

Fred's has been a Bentonville tradition. We were there recently for lunch. Not our first visit. Very small lunch crowd that day. The service was great, it alway is. The bar-b-que was great. Share a lot of the ribs and mixed platter bar b que. You could just eat a lot of this as your meal. The smoked steaks are... More

The review's of "Q" in this neck of the woods are pretty sketchy and leave one worrying about whether or not it is to be found here. Well based upon a couple of comments in reviews about this place...like that Sam Walton used to be a regular (and he could eat wherever he wanted, right)...I tried it. THANKS SAM! It... More

Our hostess had recommended the smoked sirloin since she knew we liked prime rib. It was amazing It tasted like the best prime rib but much less fatty and very tender. Our server was very congenial and gracious. The atmosphere is cozy and lovely at the same time. It was a very special dinner for two.

Server was patient with diverse (small) group. She started out slow but was able to manage order changes flawlessly. Environment was cordial. Food specials were diverse and very tasty. Appetizers were excellent.

Lasagna was excellent. Wife's fish was very good except they drowned it in lemon juice which kept her for eating all of it. Service was less than expected. I never received one of my sides. Had to ask repeatedly for drink refills and another basket if bread. We will try again and hopefully get better server.

The food was just okay here. We ate off of the lunch menu. You got a crazy amount of food for the price. It was just so so in terms of the food. I had a steak sandwich and my mom had some of their BBQ. The meat was very fatty. The service was very good although we were the... More
