Went with a group. We all waited over an hour to get our food. When it arrived, it was cold and missing ingredients. Worst lunch experience of all time.

Smokin' Joe's Ribhouse

Reviewed By Larryv501

Went with business associates to enjoy the ribs and chicken salad. Both were good. The ribs had an interesting over-the-counter rub. They were tasty but the tips were dry and tough. The chicken salad was enjoyable.I loved the style of the restaurant. Old fashioned tables with plaid plastic table clothes and four kinds of BBQ sauce on the tables. Good service

Preacher's Son

Reviewed By TXtraveler67

My daughter and I had dinner here recently and were surprised with the outstanding experience. It’s just off the town square and located in a former Methodist church - if you’ve not been here before you might think you have the wrong place. Upon entering it opens to a large room with the classic vaulted ceiling. My daughter is GF so when she heard “everything” on the menu is GF (I understood the chef is Celiac) her jaw dropped. We started with the Kale and Cabbage salad and corn bread. Wow, the salad was very large (easily splittable), tender and very tasty. We ate every bit. The corn bread was stunningly good. It wasn’t good GF corn bread, it was simply good. Do not let the GF menu fool you. You won’t even know it if you didn’t ask. We then split the Halibut for our main and our server, David, brought out a lemon cream tart as a dessert. Overall, the atmosphere, food and service were excellent. The only thing to note is is can get a bit loud due to the acoustics of the structure, but there appear to be side rooms where it’s quieter. Overall, it was a nice dinner, and we would certainly go again.

We are originally from the Chicago area. We've been searching for a decent thin crust crispy pizza. We found it. (I know you New Yorkers don't like crispy) This is a wood fired pizza. It was very very good. Nice neighborhood bar environment. But you can also eat outside.

If you (like me) enjoy this resaurant, it is about to get better. Staff informed me today that owners are opening two additional locations -- and yes, parking will be addressed. But back to this visit at this location. Seven friends and I enjoyed Monday brunch. We waited to get the back room...worth the wait. We checked out the innovative fall menu, but stuck with our 'go tos' - avocado toast, yogurt parfait (touch of honey amazing), and shimp/grits/eggs. All winners. Two tips: the portion of the shrimp/grits was huge (consider splitting) and it was chilly (bring an extra layer).Hi Barb! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a wonderful review here on Trip Advisor. We are honored you and your friends chose to eat with us at The Buttered Biscuit! We couldn't do it without your support and are so excited to be expanding around Northwest Arkansas! I hope you will join us for breakfast again soon. You are so kind! Warmly, Anna Russell

This was our first visit to The Hive. The atmosphere was so much fun, but the food was excellent. My husband had the cornmeal crusted catfish while I enjoyed the Greek salad. Both were delicious. Our server was very attentive and told us all about the restaurant and the green penguins. We will definitely be back.This is great to see especially since this was your first visit to The HIve.

Perfect addition to this wonderful museum!

Reviewed By centaur41

On the home stretch back to Knoxville after 9 week road tripping and still testing our theory that museum restaurants tend to rise to the responsibility of fitting into an atmosphere of art and connoisseurship: “The Eleven” at Crystal Bridges did just that. I opened dinner with an unusual (for me) new beer, “Fallen Queen” by New Provence, which set me up for a well prepared flat iron steak. K’s Sauvignon Blanc was perfect for the large seared scallops she ordered. Excellent service; ambiance—a well conceived, well curated museum (what more can be said?) but a bit noisy. Had a window view of one of the large ponds amongst the which museum is situated and shows off the superb architecture of Moshe Safdie as it integrates the several buildings with the water and surrounding Ozark woodland.

Reviewed By King615

Based on other reviews I had high expectations for River Grille. Unfortunately, the experience didn’t quite live up. The food was fine, but certainly not to the level described by other reviewers. I’ve eaten at steakhouses in Chicago, New York, Kansas City; River Grille doesn’t hold a candle to them. I ordered the 12 oz. ribeye. It was well-prepared, tender, juicy...but had no flavor. Similar story with our sides: good, but not great. Service was average. Not overly attentive given that, at one point my husband and I were the only diners in the restaurant. The entire experience, from the restaurant’s decor (Ansel Adams prints?) to the food preparation felt dated. Like the chef, owners opened their dream restaurant in the mid-1990s, but haven’t really challenged themselves to update the menu or the dining experience since. Given the number of dining options close by, I probably won’t return to River Grille.i'm sorry to hear that everything was just ok when you visit us. I know what it is like when you are excited about going to a new place. i'm sorry we did not meet your expectations. I appreciate your honest review and will visit with my front and back of the house about your experience. We certainly want our steaks to be flavorful and perfectly seasoned along with our selections of sides. I believe the most important part of dining out is service, so certainly disappointed that our service was not up to par. I do wish that you will consider giving us another opportunity.Brenda

We apologize you had a bad experience at our restaurant. This is definitely not a level of service we find acceptable. We will make every effort to ensure this doesn't happen again. We will contact you privately about efforts to make up for your unsatisfactory experience and to earn your business back.
