“War Eagle Mill is Quaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2010

Quaint! Sorry, but I couldn't think of another way to describe this.

Historical! Well, yes it is an old mill. It has been on this site for over 100 years, survived numerous floods and wars.

Picturesque! It's a beautiful setting. We visited on a pretty warm summer week day and repair on the nearby bridge was in full force. So, we weren't able to cross the bridge for a good view. That should be done in mid-September 2010.

We haven't had the opportunity to cook anything with the grains or other products that we purchased. But, I suspect they will be fine.

The first floor is primarily where the grain is ground, bagged, and sold. The second floor is primarily a gift shop, and the third floor is a small restaurant.

There are a number of photos and printed stories about the mill. These are interesting. If you want to really enjoy the mill, look through the photo books and read some of the scraps of stories. Look at the old tools hanging on the wall that were used in the mill operations before this was converted to much more modern grinding equipment.

“Still eating the grits.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2010

Nice drive along the way out of Eureka Springs, Nice piece of history along with some good pictures of the iron bridge alongside the old mill.

Nice natural foods inside, loving the grits, bread mixes, flax seed and jellies.. They have friendly staff and sent us away happy with their own catalogue of goodies to order when the grits run out..

“We love War Eagle Mill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2009

If you're in the area, definitely take the time to visit War Eagle Mill. They have wonderful whole grain flour that makes the best bread! I am a bread baker, and I love their flours. Try their mixes, they are fantastic! The mill and river are beautiful. A great spot for lunch, either in the restaurant or a picnic.

The Spring and Fall Craft Fairs are definitely worth the trip. So much fun! And visit them on Facebook.

“Pleasant, low-key outing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2007

While visiting a a college friend now living in Springdale, she and her young family (4 kids ages 2-8) took me to War Eagle Mill on Sunday morning for breakfast. The drive to the mill and the surrounding countryside are lovely. The mill is made up of a three-story red house that contains a shop and resturant (The Bean Palace), a working water-wheel driven stone mill, a lovely river and various old buildings. We arrived a few minutes after they stopped serving breakfast (at 11:00am) and I was disappointed to have missed the buckwheat pancakes. Our cornbread sandwiches and Hoppin' John were good but not great, while the homemade cobbler was a true treat. I purchased several bags of organic products ground there at the mill, including buckwheat pancake mix (which was delicious when I made it at home), biscuit mix and wonderful honey bread mix for the electric bread maker. All the ground products come in old-fashioned cloth flour-sack packaging. Great mementos to bring home for friends and family. The kids enjoyed wading in the shallow part of the river, skipping rocks and watching ducks and geese. The old bridge and water wheel are picturesque. I was told that this is the only bridge in AR where bow-fishing in legal, and we did see several bow-fishermen catching huge fish. Overall, a low-key, enjoyable site for a simple family outing and photo-op.
