My husband and I dined here while visiting Hot Springs from Florida and Oh, what a delight it was! There is a vast menu offering all the country food one could imagine! Everything was delicious and we ate several meals here, including breakfast and lunch. The wait staff is friendly and prompt! Amazing service! The best place to eat in Hot Springs!

We were staying at a cabin in Hot Springs, it rained a lot this week. So there was nothing much to do but eat. Lots of items on the menu to choose from, food was pretty good and restaurant was clean.

Glad my group of seven chose this place. Pretty good experience. The various dishes were tasty. The burgers were excellent. The chicken and dressing was good. The cobblers and pies were excellent. Loved the peanut butter pie. Restaurant was clean. Service was pretty good. Will return.

Glad you enjoyed your meals. We work very hard to provide fast and friendly service along with the best food. The burgers are always a big seller with many different to pick from. The chicken and dressing is our newest item on the menu with lots of great reviews and we are glad to hear you enjoyed it as well. Our cobblers are homemade daily and the peanut butter pie is also homemade being a top seller. Thank you for your review and look forward to seeing you again soon.

We stopped in while passing through on a motorcycle ride. The place is small with small town charm. The staff was friendly. We were greeted shortly after sitting down. Drinks were quickly supplied. The delivery after ordering was very slow. Once the food arrived, our sandwiches were very good.
We will probably return. If you are on a schedule you might want to think about somewhere else. If your just kickin back, this is a good place to enjoy.

Thank you so much for stopping in we appreciate your business. We strive very hard to greet every one as soon as they are seated and treat everyone like family. We are very sorry for your wait time on food we are a small town diner and very busy at times with bikers, festivals, hikers and locals that those times can be up to 45 minutes on some occasions as everything is cooked as ordered however we try very hard to let our customers know this before ordering. We are very happy you loved your food and just enjoyed hanging out with us. We hope to see you again real soon.
