Still has a plate lunch menu for lunch with excellent choices along with full menu at lunch and dinner. Beer and spirits available along with excellent meals. This place isn’t the longest running restaurant in Arkansas without good reason!

Been awhile since I was there. The food was so good, likewise the drinks. Staff was friendly. Prices seemed a bit high but I guess no more so than other places that are similar. Would recommend it to travelers.
