We had lunch at the River Rock Grill a couple days during a recent stay in the Morrilton area at Petit Jean State Park. The food is excellent and it is a buffet so there are food choices even for those that have dietary restrictions. The only drawback is the limited hours of 11:30 am to 1 pm.

Place was great last time I had the opportunity to eat there. Every time since they have not been open, so be sure to call before you waste your trip and time.

Like them on facebook to see daily menu. The day we went they served breaded pork chop, red potatoes, mixed vegetables, broccoli cheese soup, nice salad bar, rolls, and 3 different desserts. Food was very good! The grounds are very pretty so walk around before or after lunch (11 am - 1:30 pm). Location is close to Mather Lodge and... More

Very nice place for lunch if you're there between 11:30 and 1:00 PM. Suggest you visit the Rockafeller Museum before or after the short lunch serving time. Used to be open for dinner which was my preferred time. Really nice bar with a great view but at 11:30 is pushing it for cocktails. Unless it's a Bloody Mary eye opener.... More

We have eaten at the River Rock Grill in the past many times. But in the last couple of years, when we are at Petit Jean Mountain, the restaurant has been closed to the public. Very disappointing because this is an excellent venue with lots of great opportunity there. PLEASE REOPEN TO THE PUBLIC, AT LEAST ON WEEKENDS.

After a bad experience at another local restaurant, we didn't really have high hopes going in (silly, right?). We were more than pleasantly surprised. The restaurant staff was friendly and knowledgeable about their menu. Our orders were received quickly, and the food was really good. Our waitress went above and beyond with my kids, engaging them in conversation. That gets... More

in leaving Mather Lodge we used our GPS and it led us to a beautiful entrance with a gated entry. An employee was coming out and she asked where we were headed? We told her we had just dined at Mather Lodge and were trying to leave the area. She informed us we couldn't go into the Rock Grill, it... More

We were camping this week and decided to try the Buffet at the River Rock Grill. The first time we ate here several years ago they just had an order menu at lunch. Now they have a buffet at lunch during the week. The hostess was friendly and the food was excellent with quite a few side items along with... More
