Ate two meals there - one lunch and one dinner. The ribeye was a bit chewy but was prepared rare as ordered. The Reuben sandwich is good. Wife had the steak kabob that was good and daughter had chicken nuggets that she enjoyed. Service was good as well.

The food was undercooked, I had a cheeseburger, my wife a patty melt, the price was too much for the food we got. The service was average, the lady was on her cellphone the whole time, we were in there an hour before a busy time and yet we had to ask for drinks.

The service was great but the food terrible! The patty melt was very salty & odd tasting burger. Worst food we ate in eureka. However, we like going to the other Rowdy Beaver located down town, great service & good bar food (although smoky).

My husband and I ate the prime rib, baked and mashed potatoes, and fried okra. The fried okra was delicious. The baked potato was undercooked. The based potatoes and white gravy were good. The prime rib had a good flavor but was extremely fatty. Since we shared a plate, they added almost $3 for "sharing." The waitress Shanda was very... More

We stopped here and hand some sandwiches for lunch. The food and server were acceptable, but not really much above average. The facility was pleasant, clean, and well laid out

Have visited this place twice while in eureka springs, love the atmosphere, service is great and the servers are always friendly. We were lucky this last time to catch some great entertainment, Down Day Duo. Didn't care for them smoking environment. They have two areas and allow smoking in both. Didn't try food either time, but it looked much better... More

plenty of food and prices right at normal. They have a tremendous bourbon steak. Nice little trinket shop. Modest salad bar, but good food. I eat there once a month like clockwork. Wish it was closer to my home, but it makes for a great hideaway/getaway. try it, you will like it.

We walked for a long time after hearing they had good drinks. We ordered the appetizer platter and the food was not very good. The service was great and the view of the street was entertaining.
