“Fun place for drinks and people watching in an historic setting.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We visit the balcony bar in the Basin Park Hotel every time we visit Eureka Springs. The food is not haute cuisine but it is good for what it is. This visit, we had nachos and margaritas. The nachos were a huge plate piled with tortilla chips, beans, chicken, queso, black olives, jalapenos, and I don't even know what else. Very tasty. The margaritas were also very good. This is about as good as it gets for people watching in Eureka Springs. Beautiful old charming building overlooking one of the most bustling areas of historic Eureka Springs. Definitely worth a stop while you are in town.

“Excellent food with fabulous view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Every time we thought of food when visiting Eureka Springs, we thought of the Balcony Bar at the Basin Park Hotel. Every item we tried on the menu (and we tried a lot!) was very tasty and even better than we had anticipated. Service was great; staff were friendly and helpful; view was wonderful; all round best part of our trip!

Located on the 2nd floor of the Basin this is a hot spot for occupants of the hotel and others visiting Eureka. Descent food and great Bloody Mary's.

“Burgers from above.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Ate dinner on the Balcony. A friend brought us here. Old hotel still in operation in a cool little town. Very much off the beaten path. Had the black and bleu burger, outstanding. Cook perfect with bleu cheese in every bite. Big burger cooked as ordered. Service was very good. They were busy but handled the crowd well.

“Great location!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Basin and decided to grab a drink. The drinks were great and so were the appetizers. We sat in the balcony and it overlooks the street. Very cool view. Service was fair but it was getting late and I think they were doing the end if day stuff. We will go again!
