This restaurant feels like fine dining at less that Chili prices and way better food. We started off with fresh made Sangria served in goblets with the presidential seal $7. My grandson had the Club Sandwich, huge, lots of fresh turkey and ham (did not...More

We made a reservation for noon and glad we did. It was surprisingly busy for a weekday. Perhaps the excellent food, wine and service explain why. Lots of options (including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, light fare), all very reasonably priced considering the beautiful dining room. Wine...More

We looked in and saw the linen tablecloths and napkins and the classy decor and thought this place would be expensive, but for lunch at least, it really wasn’t. The service was good and the food delicious. I had the turkey reuben wrap and my...More

I always enjoy eating at 42. The menu gives you a taste of Arkansas produce. I have never had a bad meal. I have also, eaten at special events and it was excellent.

We met an old friend for lunch here on our way through town. It was easy to get to, free, easy parking, reservations were nice as it was crowded. The food was interesting, wonderful to taste, beautifully presented and the setting was awesome looking over...More

Fairly standard museum fare, salads, sandwiches. An ambitious desert offering. Convenient as the museum isn't in the heart of downtown. I continue to be puzzled by some aspects of southern restaurants, however. For instance, what was that ice cream-size scoop of pimento cheese doing on...More

Think it could be considered a miss today. Last time the food was phenomenal, the atmosphere is great, and so is the view. I had the tomato bisque soup which was too spicy and had very little taste. The kale and salmon salad was a...More
