Lunch by the South Arkansas

Nice lunch in the patio overlooking the South Arkansas. A well-balanced Gyro, a beer, and the sounds of a mountain stream were great. It's a must stop in Salida.

What a lovely restaurant nice atmosphere inside and great views from the patio! The food was delicious and with lots of variety suitable for a family. We had fish tacos, ahi tuna salad, bang bang noodles, pad Thai and the smokehouse pizza- all we would order again. The Mountain Zin wine from Mountain Spirit Winery was a huge hit. The... More

The outside terrace is beautiful. The food was terrible. It tasted like reheated frozen food. The wine was sicky sweet and we couldn't even finish drinking one glass. I wouldn't return.

I was there shortly after they first opened and unless your a health food nut the menu was totally ridiculous. Have purchased some of the wines for gifts but WAY to sweet for my taste.

Ate here with a couple of friends. The food is fine. We ordered a bottle of wine. They were out of that kind. So we ordered another. They were out of that too. The server returned with the house red so we drank that. She said people like it but none of us thought it was good. It was an... More

We stopped for lunch on a Friday on our way camping. Since we had our small dog with us, we needed a place that allowed pets and had outdoor seating. The hostess gladly seated us on a beautiful shaded patio overlooking the South Fork of the Arkansas River (though you really had to strain to see the river). The ice... More

I love the outside ambience of this restaurant. Very pleasant staff and lots of vegetarian unique choices. Located on a small creek. Order a glass of wine or a craft beer and listen to the water flow by your table.

Great setting. But bad food and understaffed. No thanks. The menu is way too big. Food is not fresh. The food is poorly cooked either over or under. Won't come back here until they change chefs. Too bad.
