“Gimme a Gorilla Beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

Stopped in after a long day at the race track for a beer and appetizer before heading out to the lake, and what a wonderful surprise. Sandwiched between new hotels, was this little jewel of a restaurant. My husband and I loved the extensive beer selection, and opted for the "gorilla size" mug:) We ordered the Monkey Nachos and the Tamale Cakes and both were fantastic. First, both were appealing to the eyes, and their use of fresh ingredients is a welcome treat. We both enjoyed the food, the brew and the excellent service. Will make this our new favorite restaurant in Hot Springs!

“Great food & great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

No complaints everything was good. Steaks were "decent". Shrimp tacos were very spicy hot but the mango salsa cooled them a bit. The monkey nachos were fabulous. Friend had the chicken & biscuits and loved it.

“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012 via mobile

Good location, not "downtown" though so it required driving. Daughter loved the pulled pork, husband had jalepeno tilapia ( we both really liked his angel hair pasta). Good service, quick service.
