“Great Bar in Hot Springs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

On our recent trip the guys spent one day at Fat Jacks watching football while the ladies shopped. Great staff and service and a super atmosphere.

“Two Visits...Probably No More”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I have eaten here twice...once right after they opened, and again recently. Although the food is not bad, the portions seem extremely small for the prices they charge. We eat out literally every night...and for the price we paid to eat here, we could've had nice steaks (and definitely better service) at Outback. With that being said...I tried their Cajun Pasta with crawfish...and the flavor was great.....the down side is that there were literally 6 small pieces of crawfish tail in the entire dish...which I considered a little stingy based on the price. My husband had the fried oysters both times. His comment was that they tasted good the first time....but the second time they were not as fresh, and had an "off" flavor. The atmosphere is definitely like a bar and grill....not a sports bar at all in our opinion....and the servers are mainly interested in chatting around the bar. Overall, we would give this place about a 6 out of 10 on our restaurant scale.

“Horrible experience- dont go!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Server was horrible. Food was cold and took an hour to get out. Never got refills on drinks. Couldnt order additional drinks. Our server had a table next to ours. I looked over and the server was standing behind the lady making rude faces at the back of her head because she wouldnt move because she couldnt hear her. Very immature. The people you hire within a company reflect the behavior of the company. We had a large table- 12- and the server felt she would get the tip no matter how she behaved....

“Good food! Absolutely horrible service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

I ordered my drink 3x's before I got it. Employees were everywhere but no one seemed to be working. The topper was when we came by for hot cocoa and soup and the person serving it had a cigarette hanging out of her mouth!! Grant it, those were being offered for free but sanitary conditions were not being applied. Probably won't be back!

The service was excellent as was the food. We ordered and got our food asap and it was hot and fresh. Reasonable prices will be back.
