Heard from a local chef this was the restaurant to go to while in the area. We wanted something different to celebrate a wedding anniversary and we found it! We started with the fritters and they disappeared quickly. Perfect appi for two, about 6 fritters in the serving. My wife had the chicken and grits, and I tried the fried... More

Come hungry and ready for a delicious, very satisfying meal. Step into the cozy, softly lit, simple dining room which really feels like a comfortable hideaway. The Pommes Frites appetizer comes topped with 1 of 3 sauces, with the herbes de Provence glaze being an oddly sweet choice. The Shrimp, Pig and Grits entree was a well-suited combination of traditional... More

Beginning Christmas Eve and through 12/26 we have eaten every meal in a restaurant while we vacationed at Big Cedar Lodge and then came to Bentonville, AR to see the Frank Lloyd Wright home at Crystal Bridges Museum. Tonight we ate at Tusk and Trotter. It was our favorite meal by far and away on this trip. Why was this... More

I had the chicken sandwich and the chipotle aioli that came on it was really good. Our table all enjoyed what we ordered and the friendly service. The appetizer was lots of fun for our group as was the desserts we shared. Bacon ice cream, who knew?!

After eating truly bad food in Fort Smith, my expectations were lowered... however this was a very good restaurant... the Farmhouse entree was very good...and so were the boiled peanuts ...

This restaurant occupies a pleasant spot in downtown Bentonville, and specializes in eclectic fare made with locally-sourced ingredients. We visited for brunch. My adult partner's basic breakfast was just fine; he ordered the eggs over medium, and that is how they arrived. The sausage was tasty, if (to me) slightly undercooked. I had carrot cake waffles with bacon and potatoes.... More

First off, this place is awesome on the inside. Great atmosphere. We started with hand crafted cocktails, and while they are $10 each, they are amazing. Unlike anything you can make on your own. I got shrimp and grits, and the variation is a grits pancake of sorts, smothered in shrimp and sauce. It was very very good. Tusk will... More

Limited, eclectic menu of perfectly done, wonderful dishes. Great bar to go along with it. A great place for a date, too!

Tusk and Trotter did not live up to my expectations. I was expecting a bit better food. It is a very casual restaurant but the lack of carpet or linens to help absorb noise meant it was loud even though it was not crowded. The Cranberry-Sage Margarita ($8) was a bit too tart. The Arkansas Fritters ($9.50) were a bit... More
