A great place for dinner. There were 7 of us and we sample a variety of items on the menu. Everyone was satisfied with their delicious food. Staff were friendly and attentive. The rustic atmosphere added to the overall dining experience.

Venue quaint. Waitress excellent. Steak, fatty. Shrimp, strong odor of chemical wash. My wife and I expected more based on expectations that we had found a diamond in the rough with a stellar chef.

The food and service here are great. The owner greats you at the door. The atmosphere of the old building is very charming. Make sure you save room for the desert!

When you go there don't stretch out ordering prime rib or shrimp. Stick with burgers and fries and such, and treasure the genuine funkiness and out-in-the-county ambiance plus in the right weather the giant deck. Enjoy!!

Absolutely wonderful food! They had a variety of offerings, including pasta, fish, and beef dishes. Vegetarian options are available, but definitely not vegan. I tried the catfish bites and the triple fish platter which includes fried catfish, shrimp, and frog's legs. The catfish bites and...More

Reviewed in Arkansas Living magazine by Doug White in the July 2012 issue. Nick Botini ran a restaurant in Harrison that had excellent reviews. He's an accomplished chef and has developed his own unique combination of spices for some wonderfully tasteful dishes.
