“Lovely Day Trip”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

We drove over for an afternoon while visiting nearby Eureka Springs. We had driven by on our way in on Memorial Day and it was packed. When we came back on Tuesday, it was so much less crowded (read: enjoyable to me) and I was glad.

The mill is in a gorgeous setting on the creek and has a lovely bridge. On the lower level is the mill itself and there are grains and mixes for sale. They are packaged nicely and reasonably priced. I bought the cornbread mix....more on that in a minute. The second floor is a gift shop. They offer lots of unique souvenier-type items and cooking tools/utensils. I loved their heavy, old timey diner-style coffee mugs and bought three. Again, reasonable prices.

On the third floor is the Bean Palace restaurant. We didn't want to fill up too much, so my husband and I split a bean lunch. It came with a bowl of pinto/soup beans (tasted just like my Mom's), a scoop of cole slaw and a piece of GLORIOUS cornbread. We ordered an extra piece so we would each have our own. They use the cornmeal ground at the mill. It is a very rough grind and has a nutty/corny flavor that is very unique. It is the same mix that I had already bought and I can't wait to make some here at home.

There is a nice shaded area near the creek and I would have loved to have had the time to just sit out there and maybe dip my feet in the water. Some kids were playing there and it looked like a blast.

“Grist Mill, old Iron Bridge, clear stream and a Deli, what else do you want?”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Whenever we're in the Rogers/Eureka Springs area, we always visit the Mill. Beautiful Bike ride or drive, especially in the Fall! Surrounded by many varieties of trees and shrubs.
War Eagle is a working mill, complete with gift shop and a Deli upstairs. With ample parking, the mill wheel and the Iron bridge offer many photo ops. Clean outhouse style restrooms outside.
Just east of Rogers on Hwy 12, turn south on War Eagle Rd. (aka 303). From Eureka Springs, take 23 south to 127 west back to 12, west to War Eagle Rd.

“A return to a favorite place”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

20 years ago I visited annually with my children to participate in the War Eagle Craft Show twice a year - this is a beautiful place. The large red Mill sitting on the banks of the meandering creek with an old Iron one lane bridge connecting to fields on the other side is so beautiful. A great spot for a picnic and some fishing. It was such a pleasure to visit this Mill again recently and enjoy the scenery.

“Unique working old mill”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Very nice still working old mill with a beautiful old bridge next to the river. Scenic ride before getting there and a variety of flours, jams and all kind of fun stuff to buy. They even have a restaurant on the top floor with some cool antiques. Very friendly ladies working there:-)
