The food was amazing, but the service the first night was non-existent. We were passed up by several employees who didn't acknowledge us until one female server rolled her eyes and said she'd be right with us, never to return. We tried again the second night (when it wasn't busy at all) and were able to sample their exquisite food.

The food is okay to very good...sandwiches and salad types of things. I really like their chicken salad on croissant. As others have mentioned the service is not anything to write home about. Slow is about the most I can say... but we weren't in a hurry and it didn't matter much that we had to wait a very long... More

My wife, 1 yr old son, and I had lunch on the balcony and had a great time. There was a live performer there doing her thing and couple that with the view and you have a wonderful atmosphere. The food we ordered was very good and affordable. I would definitely go back!

I've eaten here several times and always enjoy the atmosphere and the food. The artichoke dip served in a bread bowl is my favorite appetizer. Service can be a bit slow sometimes, but when I'm in eureka springs, I'm not in a big hurry so it's not a big deal. Prices are reasonable. Enjoy!

Apparently they were so busy that our service was cut way short. It was like they weren't use to having more than 5 customers. No one had basic customer service skills! And the food was below average. Will never eat there again.

I've been here a few times before, and knew not to be rushed for time. The service is friendly, drinks are cold and fresh from the bar. It just takes a while to get them. The food is good, just not great, but the prices are reasonable. Come here to enjoy the view off the balcony and the company of... More

The service was ok. The food was horrible. They say that they have "the best burgers in town". That was a complete joke. The pattys were definitely a pre-made frozen patty. They overcooked the burger and they had no flavor at all. We ordered chips and queso as an appetizer and they didn't even bring it to us until they... More

We just spent the weekend in ES and we had dinner here twice. Both times I got the chicken parmigiana. It was fantastic! A little heavy on the marinara but all in all it was great! Husband had the coconut shrimp and then the shrimp kisses. He raved about both. We especially loved the lady signing on the balcony. She... More

My husband wanted to try this place because of the balcony seating and the fact they had burgers. He had the mushroom Swiss and I had the patty melt. We both agreed they were some of the best burgers we ever had! Our waitress was super friendly as well. Highly recommend coming here, especially if you love a good burger!

Keep in mind that sitting on the balcony watching the people, corvettes, and motorcycles go by is one of the main reasons to go there. If you are looking for a fancy gourmet bistro, this is not for you. Expect fresh and decent bar food, good drinks, and unrushed service. We generally stop in whenever we are strolling the downtown...
