Hi, glad you had a great time and enjoyed your food and experience! Don't worry about us selling, as every business in Eureka or elsewhere is for sale.

We were there in the early evening and took the whole family (kids included). The staff was friendly and attentive. Dinner was delicious and well priced. Kids really enjoyed the pirate theme, and we all enjoyed the old Eureka feel with the exposed rock walls....More

By the name we thought it was a seafood restaurant and they do serve some but mostly the menu consists of sanwiches and mexican food. The seafood was all frozen deep fried stuff.

Hidden Gem of Downtown Eureka. Really a fun place with a pirate theme, with good food, unique mixed drink selection, and great music. Easier to enter and exit from the Center Street entrance, there is a spring street entrance but it has tons of steps....More

This place is a blast and the food is good too! Obviously not too kid friendly, but great for an adult night out! Go by and check it out!

Hi, sorry you had to experience Eureka's antiquated sewer system ... the smell really does not stem from our place, but the city's system. We haven't had any problems with it for a couple of years until recently; I hire someone to clean every day,...More

Nestled in a cave-like setting between Spring and Center Streets in Eureka Springs, the Squid and Whale Pub has fast become NW Arkansas' favorite place to be. Live music, late night pub-grub, outstanding food and drink. It's Piratical!
