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

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
