Our waitress did everything in her power with a smile and great attitude. She was the hostess, waitress, server and busboy. She didn’t get our order right, but she tried with all that she had to deal with. The restaurant was out of bacon, milk...and offered no tea. The meal was just okay. Hot Springs is really suffering with labor shortages. And they are cracking at the seams. This could be a great restaurant if they had enough helpMore

Four different entree orders and four clean plates! Food was good. Thanks to Chris for the BBQ shrimp appetizer recommendation. Drinks were made to order. Look forward to the updated Wine list.

Most importantly, Four Happy people! We are so glad to hear of your good time. The BBQ Shrimp is a favorite for us.

Tara, your hostess, was very rude and not welcoming or kind. She did not even smile. We left our phone number while waiting for a table. When she called us back she was unpleasant on the phone. We shouldnt have even bothered to come back...but we did in case the service improved once we were seated. Yes that was a mistake. We left after nobody took our drink orders for 10 minutes after being seated. I can understand a restaurant being busy but it doesn’t take much to greet a table let us know it’s a rush.More

Amazing view, small menu, delicious food! Steak, salmon cooked to perfection. Even the sides were yummy (Try the roasted brussels sprouts and mushrooms!) Service was a little chaotic, but it was spring break and restaurant recently reopened. Not a problem for us- waitress was extremely...professional and attentive. Rooftop has heaters for evening chill. Tables are appropriately set at least six feet apart for social distancing. It was lovely!!More

Great rooftop bar in the heart of historic bathhouse row! Maybe nothing super out of the ordinary, but really nice and good service as well, but the star is the space on the rooftop!

Had lunch on the roof, the hamburger was huge and delicious. Social distancing was practiced and easily accomplished. The waitress was quick to the table and very polite.

Great hotel rooftop bar in historic downtown Hot Springs. This bar is located on the top of The Waters Hotel. Nice bar with a great scenic view of downtown.

Marginal at best. Chorizo Tots were the tiniest appetizer I have ever seen! Burger was not good, the meat tasted old!! Can’t recommend this place. Friend I was eating with never got her salad, but had a tough pork chop!!

Dined twice at The Avenue while staying at The Waters hotel. The drinks were exceptional, especially The Waters Martini, a cucumber martini with lime and cucumber simple syrup, Creme of violet, and a fresh flower float. Truly enjoyed their array of appetizers including the potstickers,...fried oysters, chorizo tots, and the pimento cheese with challah. The steak quesadilla was also exceptional. Try it, then head to the rooftop bar for one final drink with a view.More
