If you are in the Lake Arenal area, don't miss dining at Mavericks. The food is wonderful ---especially if you like food smoked outside on the grill. The service is very good and the staff is friendly. Tom, the owner, is a gracious host who always aims to please. Mavericks has an atmosphere like your favorite restaurant back home, only it is set in the lush rainforest of Costa Rica. It is definately well worth a visit.

We ended up choosing Maverick's on the way to Arenal Volcano. We stopped for a late lunch and were welcomed by the owner and quickly set up at a table overlooking the lake and served lemonade and iced tea. We were a fairly hungry crew so ordered the fiesta pack for 4-5 and it was so much food! Tri tip sirloin, chicken and ribs, along with delicious potato salad with dill pickles and eggs, and crisp, tasty coleslaw. The garlic bread was warm and brushed with actual chunks of garlic - very good! The meat was all delicious and we loved the BBQ sauce on the chicken. It was my birthday and they even treated me to a brownie and ice cream -- our best meal in the Lake Arenal area. Highly recommend.The service was excellent and the servers were very helpful and fun.

Stopped at mavericks on the way to our hotel at lake arenal. The owner maverick is very friendly the food was good and had a great view. If it matters it is the only restaurant around with USDA beef. Had the whole chicken off the smoker awesome!! Worth trying.

Reasonably priced, nice staff, pretty good food, and a good option in the area where there aren't a lot of choices.

What a great place with an excellent view of the area above Lake Arenal. We were treated like regular customers by the owner and staff and the food was excellent. I highly recommend that if your going to Arenal stop if you want good foot at a reasonable price.
