Had their special of the night which was baby back ribs. The portion was HUGE. Dry rub with barbecue sauce in the side. Husband loved the baked beans. Slaw was yummy. We also had the Bang Bang Shrimp which were awesome. Ambiance is nice but somewhat dark and dated. Would stop in again.

This is our third year to come to the White River in Arkansas for fishing and our third time to eat at 178 club. They did not disappoint again! The food here is fabulous and the wait staff is always so personable and fun. Tonight Paige was a delight! We can't wait to return!

You could be forgiven for driving by the 178 Club and not recognizing it as a special place. The exterior is deceiving as it is nothing out of the ordinary but the inside is a whole different story. White tablecloths and napkins - it broadcasts "ambient atmosphere, come and stay awhile". But atmosphere is not enough to deserve a 5... More

We get to the 178 Club about once a month, and it's always been good. The only meal I've regretted ordering was the ribs, but this isn't a rib house or a BBQ joint either. Otherwise, we love the ambience in the lounge, and the service is top notch. If you can get this far out, you definitely need to... More

I have eaten here countless times and NEVER a bad meal. The chef is an expert at soups of all sorts. Every time I wonder if a new one will be good, it is excellent. The appetizer menu can't be beat. Best onion rings in the world!!!!! Try it

This place is outstanding! Home made bread and soups are outstanding. Prime rib night is Saturday night, you must reserve a portion because by the time dinner time comes around there will be no more left!

Never have eaten in a high quality restaurant in front of a bowling alley! Our friends introduced us to 178. It was delightful. The wall-eye was delish! Our waitress made our visit so fun. The drinks are good and a nice wine list. The salads are really fresh and crisp. Not a bad item was served to us. We certainly... More

We live in the suburbs north of Dallas, and couldn't think of any restaurant in our vicinity that could compare with the quality of the food in this little small town restaurant. (Population of Bull Shoals, AR is about 2,000). Our party of four arrived ten minutes before closing, but they still seated us. We waddled out of there about... More

Food was good. Much better than what I was expecting. It was nice inside and I felt a little under dressed as we just came off the lake. Entrees were reasonably priced. Try the bang bang shrimp. Yum!

A must visit every time we are at the White River. The food is always good and well presented. The staff has always been very attentive to us. I especially love the blackened walleye and the bread basket. I would give an excellent review but our Italian Crème cake was a little dry this visit and I was disappointed that... More
