Popular spot with good food

This is one of our favorites in Fayetteville right next door to the University of Arkansas. Lots of seafood with a Cajun flair and other non seafood items too. Be sure to give it a try.

The restaurant is located in the old Fayetteville power plant building just off of Dickson Street, which is the main drag into the University of Arkansas. The building still has a lot of the old power plant featured incorporated into the décor which is nice. I was there on Saturday night of Bid Week for the fraternity houses, so the... More

I had shrimp cocktail and a loaded baked potato. The cocktail sauce for shrimp was really good-tasty but not too hot. Shrimp were OK for a midwestern state. :-) Baked potato was great. Good margaritas. The atmosphere is really fun. Check out photos.

This restaurant is literally housed in a former power generation facility. I love Fayetteville and it has many quaint and unique shops and restaurants. This place has good food, not the best I've had by a far shot, but still good enough to take a trip.

We went to The Powerhouse after an extensive search for fresh raw oysters in Fayetteville. I ordered a dozen fresh oysters as well as a plate of shrimp scampi and my husband ordered the seafood fettuccine. My first issue was that all of the food came out at once which was a real bummer because we had to rush through... More

We go here often for family get togethers, we are seated promptly and the service is very good.. Fresh fish is limited but always tasty, and I love the Sunday Snow Crab special! Try the Kilowatt!

We used to enjoy eating at this restaurant, but last time we were there, the host seated another table and us at the same time. Fine, but the other table got waited on first so we got up and left. When he asked what happened we told him, and he said he forgot to tell the waiter we were seated... More

Thank you for visiting Powerhouse and while you said both tables were seated at the same time, I do apologize for the server not greeting you and taking your order first. I know that had to be an embarrassment and we hope you will give us a chance to show that we try not to make errors like that in... More

While there are a few menu items that are NOT shrimp, like most "seafood" restaurants, theirs is heavy laden with the little animal on the floor of the sea. And most of their dishes are fried. That's too easy. I don't have anything against shrimp...in fact I think they taste wonderful. But the trawlers that catch them literally tear up... More
