Description: In 1886, "The Grand Ol' Lady of The Ozarks" opened her doors to America's travelers. After more than 125 years, the Crescent Hotel has stayed true to keeping the traditions of Historic Hotels alive. One such tradition is in Culinary excellence. At the Crescent Hotel weekdays our Crystal Ballroom is transformed into the 1886 Steakhouse serving the finest steaks in Eureka Springs while on the weekends the Ballroom becomes host to weddings and on Sunday becoming the place where end of week visitors can enjoy the Grandest Brunch in the Ozarks. Such is the case at Arkansas' historic mountaintop spa resort, the Crescent. ... in the tradition of America's Finest Historic Hotels.

“Sunday Buffet a Bit Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

The lobby, grounds, and Crystal Dining Room are beautiful, and we had an enjoyable time at the Sunday Brunch Buffet. I was a little disappointed in the number and variety of dishes offered for the price. The roast beef offered was carved to order, and looked good, but it turned out to be too rare for comfort. Foods we had were good, but many were ordinary breakfast dishes such as omelets, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, sausage, etc. They did have lunch dishes, as well, and very limited salad offerings. I will say that the warm cherry cobbler and vanilla ice cream were scrumptious, and almost worth the price of admission on their own!

“Great Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Crystal Dining Room and had a wonderful experience. The room is beautiful, the service excellent, and the food delicious. Our steaks were prepared to perfection and each course was presented beautifully. For dessert, we chose the Chocolate Lava Cake which was out of this world. The only weakness to the menu, in my opinion, was the salad which consisted of iceberg lettuce, radishes, and onions. It was lacking in creativity, presentation, and taste. Everything else about the evening was delightful.

“Neat but old”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

If you are into "classic" or "old style" hotels this is the place for you. I myself am into more modern things, but having said that, I have always enjoyed my stays here.

“Sunday morning brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

After eating many places in Eureka Springs I'll have to say that the Sunday morning brunch at the Cresent is the best breakfast you can get in town
