Our burger took quite a long time and it was not very good. This is kind of a dive bar, no pun intended.

This was one of our favorite Eureka Springs hangouts. We were very disappointed when we went there this time and found that it has closed.

I doubt if you are any more disappointed than we were to find out we had to leave. I had posted our closure on this site, our website, and FB on March 29. Hope you can find another town/venue where you can enjoy yourselves!

This is a charming little multilevel bar with food. The decor is great with lots of interesting pirate paraphenalia on the walls and ceiling. The staff is friendly and attentive. The prices are reasonable with a good selection of food and drink of all kinds....More

This is where the locals go to hang out. It was a lot of fun and the music was really good. Go early for the rum punch!

OMG! After a long day of shopping we decided to stop in for a quick bite and thought maybe we'd have some seafood. There were 4 people in our group and we went down the stairs from the upper street and really enjoyed the atmosphere....More

I normally just don't bother to respond to comments such as yours but this really is unfair. You admittedly are the type of people who would steal by walking out on your bill, and you take the time to write your one and only review...More

Went in for drinks, wanted to order food but the kitchen wasn't open yet. HORRIBLE service, we basically felt like a burden on the bartender who was the only person working. We tabbed out after 30 minutes and as soon as we paid, she went...More

Hi, sorry for your disappointment on not being able to get food. We are just now switching to our Fall/Winter hours and I know it will be confusing for a bit... As far as the bartender not paying attention to you, please contact me so...More

I felt like I had been transported back into the 1970s hippie scene. I wouldn't have felt comfortable there in the late hours of the day - I'm just too old for that kinda thing anymore.

This is a cool place in Eureka Spring, Arkansas. It reminds you of being in the Caribbean. Relaxed atmosphere. My son said let's go to the pirate place.

Horrible service here. Granted it was mid-afternoon, but we had to go to the bar just to get our water glasses re-filled, not to mention another cocktail. Another table was having the same problem. The food was just mediocre...especially the big bucket. Fried mushrooms were...More

Nestled in a cave-like setting between Spring and Center Streets in Eureka Springs, the Squid and Whale Pub has fast become NW Arkansas' favorite place to be. Live music, late night pub-grub, outstanding food and drink. It's Piratical!
