We stopped for lunch at this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. The restaurant was empty, at 1pm on a Tuesday, but when the hostess took us outside on the deck overlooking the lake, we found all the other patrons. Fun place...can see how this...More

Food tasted & looked like pre-made, pre-cooked, frozen food...worse food I've had since being in Hot Springs! Was really wanting to find a place that would have exceptional WOW seafood.....This is definitely NOT the place to get seafood!

Other reviews have said this was a great place or a not so great place. I guess it has to do with your expectations and your experience at the restaurant. We came here on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend; they do not take reservations...More

Great views, wonderful ambiance! Food was okay, not spectacular. Definitely worth the trip. Try to not have quite so many premade items, please.

I guess you shouldn't order food that you know is not local (i.e. seafood in an inland state). The atmosphere was nice though and the service was very good.

One of our favorites when in Hot Springs. Patio seating is great, with view of lake. Plenty of seating, although you can expect a wait at prime dinner times. Food is always good and staff is friendly.

Worst place in hot Springs. The location is great on the lake. The food is all frozen and the owner is a jerk. Don’t waste you time or money here.

You are right on the water. You can see the water from almost every table in the restaurant. Menu also has non-seafood options like grilled chicken, po-boys, and burgers.
