We live in Benton and bring all of our out of town visiting friends here for a good local option! We love the wings, steak sandwich, and of course, the fish sandwich! Oh and the potato soup is delicious!!! We always have good service as well.

It's been awhile since we've eaten there, but we always enjoy it. I had the pepper Jack potato soup, which I love. I also had a fish taco (first time I had tried this), and it was very good.

This was our first visit to Jack Russell and we enjoyed our meal. My husband had the fish sandwich with a side of red beans and rice and I had the fish taco. Good portions and excellent taste. Hubby said he would have preferred texas toast or a bun instead of plain bread. Homemade chips and salsa were an excellent... More

My family and I stopped here on our way through and was surprised at how relaxed the atmosphere was. There was a band playing outside, and the menu was simple but everything looked amazing. Definitely recommend for anyone visiting in the area! Very nice place!

I was surprised by this little place tucked in down town Benton. The fish was wonderful, warm, inviting, comfortable, atmosphere. The decor was nice with adequate comfortable seating. I shall return when I visit town again.

My experience here has been mixed. I recommend it, on the whole, but not highly. They do have good local music sometimes.
