The owners were very accommodating to seat and serve us on short notice. The wait staff were excellent, the steak we had was excellent, and we heard few complaints. We will definitely include it on our next trip.

We were a group of 18. We were having an RV Rally in Hot Springs and needed a place to have dinner and a business meeting. This restaurant was kind enough to open up their private room on a Friday night when this room was not normally available. The room was just what we needed to conduct a short business... More

The food was wonderful. Best Steak I have ever had in any restaurant. We had a group of 18 and the service was great. We were able to have a business meeting in a room that I requested. Beautiful view out the window. Thanks to my extended family that lived there for helping make our night a success. Will return... More

Group of 18, ugly room they put us in. Food took close to 2 hours before we received our food. Food was cold. Charged $2 over stated price on menu, they did correct. For a Friday night the were not busy. Other folks must know better

Loved the fried oysters. The service was good and lots of choices for grilled, blackened or fried. Glad we found this spot.

I had some fish with sweet potato fries. All around... ok, not great. My wife however... was much less enthused. She ordered the grilled chicken, which states that it's got a marinade to die for. I'm pretty sure it was a frozen chicken breast from Walmart with no seasoning. It was a step above cardboard in terms of flavor, texture... More

We went to the Back Porch Grill because we were staying at the Sun Bay resort where the grill is located. We thought that the food was a bit overpriced but the food was good.
