You will absolutely find something to eat here. The menu is extensive with some really interesting offerings, and the food is delicious. The atmosphere is great too, Located in the old Power and Light Building, the brick and interesting architecture is priceless. It is a little pricey, but will make your special night out.

Went here with a group of friends before attending a performance at Theater Squared. Best deal on oysters within hundreds of miles. We filled up on delicious appetizers and drinks instead of ordering dinner. We were all full and happy and left with money to spare.

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
