Great family restaurant. American/Pub food: veggie or beef burgers, great fries, homemade salsas... Tuna steak sandwich is phenomenal! Awesome selection of beer. Great staff. Sit on the back patio if it's not too hot out. For a town with a lot of restaurants, I would recommend Sparky's to just about anyone!

Great place to eat. I had "The Sparky Cheeseburger Basket" that came with Monterey Jack cheese and had cheese added to my fries! Very good and would visit again!

The menu was overwhelming with too many different cuisines. We ended up getting burgers and they declare them to be "fresh made" but our meat was heavy and tough and hardly any fresh flavor. Their credit card machine was down, glad we had cash.

I read about Sparky's on Tripadvisor as I was planning my trip to Branson & Eureka Springs, and was really looking forward to it. It was a let down. Maybe it's because we were there at an odd time - mid afternoon, when most restaurants are cleaning up from lunch, and getting ready for dinner. Maybe that's why the staff... More

If you need a good big burger come here. The menu also has plenty of other options. The rating of this place should be way higher than a teahouse. Maybe more MEN need to use tripadvisor.... Staff was prompt, nice and never let glasses go empty.

Want a good sandwich? Try Sparky's! We have been eating there for over 12 years. Always clean, and the wait staff is very attentive. They also have a good selection of beer.

If you are coming to Eureka Spring, Sparky's is a must. Leave the fancy dress, coat and tie at the B&B, this is a family restaurant for hanging out and great food. Great burgers with a wide choice of cheeses, nachos for miles and so on...everything here is fresh and wonderful. Portions are large. I come here EVERY time and... More
