Traveling through and saw this on trip advisor. Once again, trip advisor came through to point us in the right direction. Bought a t shirt so we would remember and come back when in Arkansas.

The food was amazing. We had 5 people eating with all empty plates, full bellies and no complaints. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Only 10 minutes off the interstate and worth the drive!!

I found this to be a restaurant with typical bar style food. I ordered the French dip which was close, but not what was described on the menu. It was decent and edible and the service was good.

The theme was beach and surf. Food was awesome and plenty. Service was excellent. In the heart of downtown Arkadelphia parking was good. Bathrooms clean and followed the theme of the restaurant.
