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.

“waste of money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We had breakfast in the Crystal Dining Room because it came with our hotel stay. According to the hotel this breakfast would be worth $10. I would not pay $5 for that food. It's a buffet which had a very limited selection. The entire buffet consisted of biscuits with gravy, egg casserole, potatoes and link sausage, cereal and toast. There was an omelet station, which is what I had. It was okay. Not the best, but not the worst. I personally do not like sausage, especially link sausage so I had no meat. I tried the potatoes, but they were dry and just tasted old and stale. I've had better free hotel breakfasts in much cheaper chain hotels. I would not eat at this place again.

“Crescent Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The Crystal Dining Room was very pleasant and the food was good. Be sure to order your steak medium rare if you want it pink. Medium is well done. Did not see any ghosts.

“Nice experience, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

We are staying at the Crescent and wanted to try the Steak House. It was good a little pricey for my tastes but it was good nonetheless. The Crystal Dining room is beautiful and I love the view. The service was great and even the kids lined it! The Sunday brunch is really good and I would rec that!

“Sunday Brunch Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

We have gone to Eureka Springs several times over the last 10 years and have had Sunday brunch at the Crescent every time. My husband especially looked forward the lox and bagels and the Mimosas. However, this last brunch was so disappointing. For $25 per person, the only thing that was close to being special about it was the mimosas. While the food they did serve was good, the selection was poor and nothing like it was during our prior years' visits. Seems like the chocolate fountain has replaced all of the items we enjoyed in the past. Even the website gives a false impression.
