Pleasantly surprised

Whitney gave us excellent service, the food was tasty, and came to our table in no time at all. The band wasn't that great, but the food and service were impressive! We will definitely be back!

We ate here with a large group, granted there were more of us than they had planned on, so that definitely threw them for a loop. However, it took almost 3 hours for us all to be served and pay, which just seemed excessive. The food portions were small for the price and the food was mediocre at best.

Great food in the restaurant and good people in the tavern with live music and a patio! Everyone made us feel welcome and at home here. I definitely recommend this place!

We were told that this is an excellent place for comfort and that is definitely the case. We were so impressed with this place that we came here twice during this visit. My husband and I split the reuben (so yummy) and each had a side salad (another very good choice). The salad had mixed greens instead of the usual... More

We drove past this place several times, then finally decided to stop and give it a try. Let's just say, it's well worth the stop, as the food & service are both GREAT!

I visit Eureka Springs several times a month and there are many excellent restaurants to choose from. The Rowdy Beaver is not one of them. I always read reviews and have never been so disappointed in a place with such good reviews. Both the food and service. I had the steak shish ka-bob and the meat had so much tough... More

The service was very good but my food was slightly undercooked. I asked for my steak to be medium and it was more medium rare. My baked potato wasn't soft and my steamed vegetables were still quite crunchy.

We stopped in for dinner after riding all day. They have a fairly decent menu selection and the portions were generous. Good comfort food for the weary traveler.

We did not know where to go and this was easy to see from the highway. The food was very good and well priced. The staff was friendly and made a great cocktail.
