“Great place out of the way”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We stay at Gastons almost once a year. The food at Gastons restaurant is above average and the view over the White River is awesome. Reserve the table to the far left and the view alone is worth the visit but any table next to the windows are awesome. We usually stay a few days in one of the cabins but they have condo's that are cheaper. If you are an aviator the grass runway is short but OK for a seasoned pilot. Don't go out with a full load to be safe. My 150/160 has made it in and out any time I landed there. Gastons welcomes your animals in the cabins but I don't know about the condo's, check with them. The cabins we have rented all have a deck overlooking the river a stones throw away but safely above the river. Boat rental, canoe and river boat is available at a resonable rate for guests. Do an internet search on "Gastons White River Resort" at Lakeview Arkansas and you will want to go. I am not an employee and have no interest in Gastons other than a good time for me and for you IF you go. And IF you have never been to that part of Arkansas there are plenty of sights and activities to enjoy.

“Annual fishing trip to White River”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Great restaurant. Located right on the river. You can watch fisherman and wildlife out the windows of the large dining room overlooking the river. Excellent menu and salad bar. You can peruse the 100's of antique outboard motors and bikes while waiting for you order. A great experience.

“NOT first-class!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Their slogan is, "It costs no more to go first-class." In that case, choose another restaurant! The food is standard prepackaged restaurant fare gussied up a bit and way overpriced!! There are no options with sandwiches and wraps (which cost between 8 and 12 bucks). It's fried potatoes of some kind. I was told I couldn't even request the potatoes be left off! Perhaps if there were better options or lower prices I could give this place a second chance. As it stands, I can recommend much better and cheaper options in the area.
