My husband and I took our daughter and son-in-law for dinner at Powerhouse. Three of us had steaks and everyone was different and cooked to perfection. The servers were absolutely great, our glasses were never allowed to be emptied. The prices were reasonable, and they have more beer choices then I could ever drink.

Best place in town to sit at the bar and eat Crab on Sundays its cheap! Nice beer selection as well. Be careful with the Kilowatt drinks, 2 will put you under.

I grew up in Northwest Arkansas and used to eat at Powerhouse a lot while in college. Although that was 15 years ago, it never disappointed. However, my family recently went to Powerhouse to eat after seeing a performance at the Walton Arts Center. It was a few days before Christmas and was about 8pm when we entered the restaurant....

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Good or bad, reviews help inform us of our failures and successes from the customer viewpoint. Your experience at Powerhouse is totally unacceptable and I have no defense for your table not being greeted by a server within reasonable time. We were busy that evening with a limited staff due...

We have been going to Powerhouse for years and the food and atmosphere is always excellent. The seafood platter is awesome and don't forget to try the megawatt drink. This is one of my favorite resturants in the Fayeeteville area.

I only had the fried alligator with onion rings, but it was very good. I love the atmosphere. Old power company brick building tucked away around a corner in Fayetteville. Parking may be a bit of a challenge on busy nights, but it would be well worth the wait. The staff is very prompt and friendly. I will definitely visit... More

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...
