“Great stop on a drive”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

The food products in the store are great, we eat organic so this is always a stop when we are near. The pancakes, the steel cut oats, the pecan pancakes, and everything else we have tried has been good. The river nearby is nice to just sit and read and listen to the water. The restraint upstairs leaves a little to be desired, we will bring something next time or eat before or after. It's too bad, with all the organic product downstairs there could be great potential. The history with the flooding and rebuilding is interesting. Take the drive, pick up some product, if nothing else get some multigrain pancake mix.

“A trip into the past!”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

War Eagle Mill recalls a by gone era with a working grain meal, general store, and restaurant. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The restaurant served good hardy food at reasonable prices. We spent an interesting fun half day exploring the mill.

“Historic Mill Still Makes Healthy Food”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

If you're in the area, take a drive to War Eagle Mill. The mill makes many different kinds of non-gmo flour, grain and bakery mixes, in everything from 2lb to 25lb bags. I went to buy some bags to try, and left with two grocery sacks. They also sell honey and jams/preserves. You can see the mill work and talk to the employees while you're there. Second floor of the mill has some nice local pottery and other crafts for sale. Third floor has a restaurant, but I missed eating there on my visit.

Nice place for some photos of the stream, the mill and the bridge. Great place to get some fresh non-gmo flour. Lovely drive through the Arkansas countryside if you're coming from Eureka Springs, for sure.

“Love This Place!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

I always visit here when I'm in the area. The employees are always so nice and are willing to talk about the area and the history of the mill. Don't forget to visit the top floor for a bowl of Bean Palace beans! Yummy! The second floor has some local pottery that's very pretty - and other gifts and vacation momentos.

The last time I was there, it was full of school children on a field trip. Many of the mill employees were dressed in Civil War-looking military garb explaining the role the mill played in the Civil War. I actually stopped what I was doing to listen to the Confederate soldier tell about how the Union army took over the mill to grind food for the soldiers after the family fled. I was so interested, I had to go learn more about battle of Pea Ridge. These are things you don't learn unless you ask the folks working there! It's such a great place full of history, beauty and even a little fun! You can watch folks fishing in the river from the mill windows, or go on your own adventure on the grounds.

I like to go to the War Eagle Cemetery on the other side of the bridge past the festival grounds. There is also an amazing view of the river down there, too, where you can actually walk down to the water. The only catch is that you have to open the fence (there is a sign next to it that reads the Cemetery Hours are 8-5) and ensure you close it behind you. I'm assuming this is private property with an easement for those visiting the cemetery, so I tried to tread lightly! There are also cows in the pasture area below the cemetery who seem pretty friendly, although I wouldn't trust them! The view is worth it. And the headstones date back to the 1800s, even though many of them are hard to read. It really provides an insight as to how short life was back in those days.
