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...

The food here is excellent. The Wings are great. The Service, however, leaves a lot to be desired. Out waitress was not very attentive and even admitted to having started drinking before her shift. Worth a visit for the food, but expect the service to be lackluster at best.

We have traveled to Eureka many years with our group of 10. Each year we lunch on the Balcony at the Basin Park. Each time we have a great meal with a nice view of historic downtown. We will be back for sure.

We had lunch out on the balcony. Great views of the town! The food was just kind of "meh". I ordered the sloppy sandwich and my sister ordered the patty melt (which we shared both). My parents were also with us and both ordered burgers. None of us were very impressed. Our waiter was great but the service was extremely... More
