For so many years the Powerhouse was the favorite dinner place for our circle of friends, we all go out together for dinner every 6 weeks or so, often back to our old favorites. Years and years the Powerhouse was chosen 2-3 times a year. Not any more. The food isn't as good, the dinner is rushed, it's more of... More

This place looks exactly like it did when I was in college nearly 20 years ago. To me, the place is kind of a weird setup and could use a little Restaurant Impossible mainly for the decor. As far as restaurants go, it has been a survivor. While the food is good, it's not out of this world. But it... More

We've been to Powerhouse many times. Lots of reasons really, it's close to the Fayetteville campus of the University of Arkansas (Go HOGS) and it's built inside an old "Power House" that provided the electricity for Fayetteville- so it has the "very cool" factor and finally and foremost- the food is Really Good. I love seafood but come on..... go... More

I work abroad, and whenever I am able to go home Powerhouse is on the must visit list - it has long been a favorite for me and my wife. Last week we went for a late lunch, like mid-afternoon, and since breakfast had been many hours earlier, we chose to order our top choices from the dinner menu. It... More

Mark, thanks for writing your review. You are entirely correct 4 shrimp is not an acceptable portion for a meal. I have sent you a message asking for more info so I can see where the issues are within PH. With your help this will be resolved. As to portion sizes and costs, we have barely raised prices at PH...

The Kilowatt is their famous drink and it is delicious & strong! Similar to a frozen hurricane. The Powerhouse salad is a must also. All the food is fantastic - you cannot go wrong with anything you order. They also have nightly specials that are great. Kid friendly but also a good date night place. The backroom is also great...

I don't usually eat seafood unless I am vacationing on the Gulf. But Powerhouse has very fresh selections (salmon is wonderful) and I have never been disappointed. I actually had to visit twice on my last visit to Fayetteville because I could not decide what I wanted. It is a bit pricey but worth it. All appetizers are great, especially... More

After a long day of touring the University of Arkansas we stopped in for dinner. They had a great menu with something for everyone. My daughter wanted escargot as an appetizer her friend wanted fried pickles (just an example of the range). If she attends college there, we'll be back on a regular basis.

Fried, fried and fried. Don't get me wrong. I'm Southern, so I like fried. But I don't want everything on my plate done that way. I ordered blackened fish and it looked lonely and small on the plate. This place is a good location and has $5 wine specials and some happy hours that are fun, but there are so... More
