Great Veiws

We go to Eureka Springs every year and we always eat here. I like sitting on the balcony to people watch and enjoy the view. The food is always good and the staff nice.

Well I swore I would not return but I did - the power of hunger makes you do strange things when ES closes down at night but we tried the balcony restaurant again. Don't expect anything but fair to poor waiter service and if you are able to get waited on you have plenty of time to read a novel,... More

We were so delighted. Having just come to town, we didn't know if there would be any open restaurants. I chose this one for the view, although the inside portion was so warm and cozy with a glowing Christmas tree that we stayed inside. Our server was absolutely cheerful and gracious. We had a simple lunch of chicken tenders and... More

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
