Good Steak; high prices

This place has a great gift shop; we tried the "Beaver Balls" and they were pretty good. The steak and sides were good; but priced a little high.

We really wanted to like this place. It just wasn't meant to be. The Philly cheese steak I ordered was more like a shredded beef sandwich, that wouldn't, on it's best day, qualify as Philly cheese steak. The wife got the chicken strips...all three of them. They were, to be fair, hand breaded, but nothing I'd go out of my... More

My boyfriend and I are visiting the Eureka Springs, AR area and decided to try the Rowdy Beaver. It was Valentine's Day and figured it might be a fun place to try. We arrived around 5pm and found a few people waiting but figured it would be fine. I waited for approximately 10 minutes before a host/hostess came to the... More

Ordered the catfish and sirloin steak. The catfish was OK, the steak was cooked to order, but just OK. The steak we ordered was marinated, and we probably should have stuck with just the plain steak. The baked potatoes were not very good and the macaroni and cheese was just some cheese thrown on top of macaroni. Come on, you... More

Burgers were big and cooked to order. Fries were handmade and good. Nice clean place. Only con was the wait time between when we came in and when someone finally noticed and came to seat us, even though there was only one other couple there having lunch.

I got the mac and cheese.....it was good and a large portion but not exceptional. My husband got soup and sandwich and it was good. We were there mid afternoon and the only people in the place. I noticed it was packed one evening as we drove by. It appeared that it could be a really fun place to party... More

If you keep in mind that this is a biker restaurant, some of the comments made by previous reviewers can be disregarded by certain personalities. My wife and I actually found it to be family-friendly, and even though it wasn't exactly The Ritz, we thought the service was very friendly and pleasant, and our food tasted great! I had a... More

Just had drinks but even for a mid day week night during the off season the Rowdy Beaver was a fun environment for local watching. A few of the locals were quit intoxicated but were quite entertaining. Service was good and beers were average priced.

A very average experience. Our server was super nice and the food portions were large but the food was very average and a little pricey for what it was. Atmosphere is blah.

We had great service, so we tipped our waitress well. The meals were terrible for the price and the restaurant was tacky. Tacky as in like glue. Our shoes stuck to the floor, the seats were cracked vinyl and the silverware was bent and dirty. The food was flavorless and lacking. For three entrees (sandwiches and a hamburger), one appetizer,... More
