“A hidden jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Who would have thought this quality of restaurant would be found in the little town of Bull Shoals? The service was excellent, the food very memorable and the atmosphere great. Truly a hidden jewel. Don't miss the opportunity to have a wonderful dining experience at 178 Club.

“FABULOUS!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I have been going here for decades. Even after I moved away, I would make a trip home to come here. The BEST FOOD you will get anywhere ever! My favorite is the grilled salmon. Boyfriend usually has a steak which he loves, but also says they are the best burgers anywhere. Everything is homemade included all the sauces and dressings and even the cheese sticks are fresh made in a wonton wrap and unlike any frozen thing you've ever had. A must have! Salad is always fresh, bread is delicious and waitstaff is always top notch, Except for Ted (sorry to name names, but the truth hurts) who is always grumpy, but has become somewhat of a local icon so they ignore his rudeness I guess. I can't think of anything bad to say about this place. After years and years the only thing I have ever had that I didn't like was the Italian nachos. If you are within 25 miles, it is worth the trip. Dinner runs $30-50 for two and is casual enough to come in your shorts after a day on the lake.

“Special Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We love the 178 Club and always recommend this restaurant to tourists. Elegant but relaxed atmosphere. The appetizers are sensational from the potato skins to the alligator and esgarot.
Their pasta's are delicious and the steaks yummy.

“Average food, a little pricey.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The staff was really nice and helpful, but the food was average. I thought it was a bit pricey- $92 for 2 adults and 2 children.
