Good buffet with wide variety. Also a good variety of items that can be ordered from the menu. Usually has some type of barbeque on the buffet.

The food was very hot and fresh. Our service was above average and friendly as well. It had been many years since we traveled through Glenwood, but times have not changed at Fish Nest at all.

Food was very good, all home cooked. Went on wrong night-fried chicken was not on buffet. Understand it is some of the best chicken you can find in Arkansas. $13.95 per person, for the atmosphere and serving yourself is a little pricey for this section of the region.

We stayed in Kirby about ten miles away and this was the closet restaurant open on a Monday evening. It turned out very nice; good smoked chicken (my buddy said the catfish was very good) with an open salad & dessert buffet. Very friendly staff.

Ate there last night and it was excellent! Hush Puppies were as good as I have ever had. Fish was delicious as were the Home Made Potatoes. They had a steak Stir Fry that was very good but I would have liked a flour tortilla to wrap it in along with the bell peppers and onions. Service was more than... More

We went on a Thursday evening and it had a nice crowd without being overly crowded. We all had the buffet. Typical salad fare that was fresh and plentiful. The main courses were varied from fried fish and chicken to smoked ribs and beef tips. The food was fresh and not dried up from sitting out too long. There were... More
