My father and I had a very pleasant experience with a female bartender. She looked like a pin up girl from the 50s. Very sweet! She kept a positive attitude although the restaurant and bar was very busy on a Saturday afternoon she still made time to give us some information on the hot spots in the area. It was... More

This place has been criticized for average food, and that is correct. It is a burger, sandwich, taco kind of place. All the food we had was fine, nothing special. Service was slow, and the place didn't seem too clean. We wiped off our chairs and asked for the table to be rewiped. But none of that mattered. The view... More

We love going to this place so we can sit on the balcony and look at the town. It has great views! We were seated right away and the drinks were great. I ordered the chicken macaroni and cheese which was good. I've had better but it was decent. Everyone I was with really enjoyed what they ordered. Friendly staff

This is a great place to dine and take in the Spring Street view of Eureka Springs. The food was great and the menu varied. We dined there at dusk so the atmosphere was just right. Live music added to the enjoyment. The staff was top notch. Will certainly eat there again in the future!

It seems that each time we visit Eureka Springs, we eat at The Balcony Bar & Restaurant at The Basin Hotel. We usually eat there at least once a year. We recently purchased a vacation home on the lake and are only a few minutes from this great venue. In May of 20014 my husband and I celebrated the closing... More

It is true what other reviewers have mentioned, the bar inside doesn't appear to have adequate service. However we were wanting to go outside on the balcony. Have been about 4 times since June. I suggest going later in the evening as it will be cooler. They have fans but don't work well enough. Parking may be easier to find... More

The bartender was too busy reading his book to help his customers. The woman in front of me was standing there a good three to four minutes before I walked up and said something to him. Then he was so mad about having to do anything. He was rude and the drinks were awful. The food came out cold and... More

Visiting Eureka Springs on a nice hot afternoon will sap the energy from even the hardiest of tourists, so when my guy suggested we find a place to have lunch, I was ready for any place with air conditioning. I was drawn to the 1905 Basin and we decided to eat there. Looking where to sit, we saw the balcony... More

We stopped in for a couple drinks on a Saturday night. Our bartender was terrible (poor kid, he was overwhelmed) so we left after just one $6 drink.
