The food was delicious and the staff was incredibly helpful and attentive. Other reviewers have commented that it was too expensive, but we have found that most seafood restaurants in Hot Springs have a higher price point than we are used to. They had a great selection of both fried and broiled food and the sides were great and there... More

Stopped in for a late lunch at about 3:00 wanting to kick back and relax with a view of the lake. With lunch specials from 11-4 we checked them out. Best deal by far is the grouper. $18.95ish at dinner but only $10.95ish at lunch for the same portion! I was in a sandwich mood and went for the grouper... More

The last time we went our new potatoes were rotten, all four of us has black potatoes in our bowls. The waitress brought out new ones saying so sorry that the cooks said there was a bad batch and again rotten potatoes. I know if you take the time you can tell from feeling the potato what's going on. Second... More

Hello Corina this is Michelle (Peyton's mom). I am sorry to hear about your bad potatoes. We don't make it a habit to poke on food we serve to our guest so unfortunately every once in awhile this can happen. I promise we expect top notch from our suppliers. I also can assure you that our grouper is not swai... More

It was good but not great. The service at 3pm wasn't at its best either. We waited a while for our server to show up. She finally did after another server went to get her. The food was your mostly fried. The alligator was the best thing we had. But the location is good. Ducks, geese, right on the lake.

Not much selection with higher prices. Awesome views and you can drive up in your boat. My father-n-law says the catfish is the best he has ever had. I always leave hungry though.

When I see a seafood restaurant in the middle of the USA, I'm a little leary of how good it can be. All six of us had platters that were awesome. The place is right on the water and it gives the feel of being on an inlet by the ocean. Atmosphere is great and this is a great ending... More

Imagine sitting on the water, eating fresh seafood and having a cold drink. This place has it all, you can sit inside or outside. Service is always stellar, the Sea Bass was very good as was the fried shrimp. The seafood platter will fill you up, but kinda pricey, but it is very fresh. No reservations needed, have never had...

For Hot Springs, one of the better places we've eaten over the years. The seafood platter was big enough for two and had an unusual mix (shrimp, grouper, clams and calamari).

We eat here every time we visit Hot Springs. The food is great! We also love the atmosphere. We are here last night, and it was as good as ever. The main reason I am doing this review is to tell how much we appreciate the waiter we had. His name is Monte. He's the best waiter/waitress we've had in... More
