What a great out of the way spot. Food was surprisingly gourmet and excellent. Service was attentive and friendly. Atmosphere was amazing with lake views. Great for special occasions or anytime! Reservations are a must . They’re always busy.

We entered the restaurant about an hour before closing as a party of 17. The service and food great and the boys really enjoyed the deserts. When the manager approached us to see who should receive the check, she informed me that someone had given...$250 towards paying for our meal. I was so stunned that I didn’t have the words to express my appreciation for this unsolicited act of kindness. This was a great experience for our group and we plan to visit the area again. We will certainly visit this restaurant again.More

An absolutely outstanding restaurant. My wife and I ate here twice on our visit to Calico Rock Arkansas. The food, the service, and the overall experience was great. Everything we ordered was off the charts good!! From the appetizers, steak, lobster, chicken, salads, and drinks!!...HIGHLY recommend Whispering Woods Grill.More

Enjoyed our visit to Whispering Woods. Great place to visit, adorable cabins, great natural surroundings, and excellent food and service. The owners have worked really hard to creat an exceptional place. Only one complaint would be that it is time to retire the mattress in...cabin number 2. It was lumpy, had a high ridge in the middle that separated the two very dished out sides, and it was falling through the lower mattress. I slept about two hours and my husband had to move to a bunk bed. He is 72, normally not the best option for him. Other than that, it was a great place to stay.More

Our innkeeper suggested this restaurant and they were certainly correct. They followed all the COVID 19 guidelines to a T. The service was top notch. We had an appetizer of avocado toast that was amazing. There was plenty for the 2 of us. We were...really impressed with the salad. They came with our meals but not only offered the usual (boring house salad) but a wedge salad, and a caprese salad and another option. I had a seafood pasta that was generous with scallops and shrimp and done perfectly. My wife had the Yaki Sobo and she raved about it. We sat at a table facing Norfolk Lake and they had an outdoor fire pit that was appreciated. It was a very enjoyable experience.More

We had an amazing dinner here. The pork tenderloin and mushroom ravioli with shrimp were delicious! We had the skillet cookie for dessert and it was fabulous! Be sure to call for a reservation! Outside dining is available as well as window tables with a...view of the lake! We will return on our next trip!More

We are seasoned travelers could have spent our wedding anniversary almost anywhere before the coronavirus made us change plans. Social distancing and wearing a mask made finding a resort that had five star dinners and cabin lodging over looking a lake a challenge. Whispering Woods...Cabin and Grill near Jordon, Arkansas about a half hour drive south of Mountain Home, Arkansas, it is not a grill but a fine dinning restaurant even with social spacing, reservations recommended, first evening (Wednesday) we had their special Prime Rib, the best I have enjoyed, and at eighty-two years old that is a lot of restaurants, it was worth staying in one of their cabins overlooking Lake Norfolk. The cabins are fully furnished, including refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, dishes and utensils. Each cabin has quiet air conditioning, a back deck with a view of the lake, parking by front door. Second day lunch outside patio with their special sandwich shrimp over hamburger lettuce tomato and cilantro french fries, again the best ever. That evening it was hard to choose between trout, walleye, or ribeye steak. You guessed it, I gained four pounds. Forgot to mention homemade desserts, the best ever, we took a couple back to our cabin for a late night snack, We are planning on making this an annual event. The owners, manager, and wait staff were very courteous and helpful Why go to the Caribbean, Florida, or Arizona when we have this private place here in Arkansas Date of stay: August 2020 Room tip: #9 best one bedroom with lake view, but they also have two bedroom cabinsMore

The food and service is excellent. The view from the patio is wonderful. The hostess and waitress were very helpful and genuine. The jalapeño bacon dip was wonderful and the sea bass was delicious. Will return in the future.

Stopped for lunch on the patio. Food was delicious. Had Welsh Rarebit, Fried Green Tomatoes and fantastic Hush Puppies. They have homemade desserts too! Will be back the next time we are in the area. Nice views!
