“Cool bar, with amazing food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

With Tripadvisor's reviews, we decided to give it a try. We shared the Baja Bucket, with huge shrimp, crab legs, chicken and steak. Food was amazing, not at all what you would expect from a bar. Great service, cold beer, and a local band made for a great night!

“An *almost* dive bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

If you are looking for a tiny, dive type bar in Eureka Springs, you won't be disappointing. The prices aren't terrible for a tourist type town and it's mostly filled with locals. It has a semi-pirate theme and they didn't try to hide the rocks that were carved out to make the building. Also, the bartenders were super nice!

“Tourists in a local pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We get to Eureka Springs a couple of times a year, and we never come to town without stopping by the Squid and Whale. Understand what it is - this isn't a flashy, manicured tourist trap. It's a local bar, and a very good one. You'll encounter some very unique local characters there, and often get a chance to catch up on what’s going on in Eureka from a native’s point of view. We always sit at the bar, where you can visit with one of the owners – a delightful, down-to-earth couple. When night falls, you’ll often have the chance to listen to a band that plays up-close and personal… just how we like it. Live music, cold beverages, and real people. It doesn’t get any better than this.

“Neat atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Great place to kick back & have a cold drink on a hot day (we did that). Then we came back that evening for a few more drinks & listened to a great band. If you are looking for a. Place to give you the pirate feel this is it!
