Fuel Up Like a Foodie
Half the fun of going on vacation is trying all the local restaurants. You won’t be disappointed with Bentonville. We found so many great places to eat with amazing family friendly dining and cuisine.
This restaurant is casual dining with delicious gourmet food the whole family will enjoy. It is located just a short distance from the main square in Bentonville. With an ever changing menu, you will find unique foods that aren’t on your everyday menu. Whether it’s bison, boar, or blue fin, the quality of food matches the presentation. And the customer service is up to par as well.
In keeping with its name, the Hive decor features large bees and honeycombs on the walls – unusual but fun and fitting for an “art” hotel’s restaurant. We were staying at 21C so it seemed only rational to drop in to The Hive downstairs for breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount and quantity of food. The breakfast is a must for your next trip. A word of advice. You will want the homemade biscuits and jam. I will definitely be going back just for that.
Eleven is located at Crystal Bridges which makes it the perfect place to grab a bite while you are at the museum. The southern influence was evident in several of the items on the menu. I was pleasantly surprised to find out the entire menu is gluten free. The view from the restaurant is lovely. It is very large, so there plenty of tables for guests. With the large windows on both sides of the restaurant, there is a lovely view for every table.
It is a little known fact the father of the owner of Preachers Son use to give his service across the street at an adjacent church. The restaurant is in an old church and has modern stained glass windows that let the sunset shine through giving the dining room a beautiful orange glow. Preachers Son gluten free menu and atmosphere will not disappoint. We tried many dishes and none disappointed. Out of all the places to eat, Preachers Son was one of our favorites.
Louise is a modern cafe in Thaden Fieldhouse which serves a diner-style menu for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. This cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating facing the runway. While there for breakfast, we were excited to watch a helicopter lesson and multiple small planes take off.
You can also check out the museum in the front and store. Both are interesting to walk through. Our food was quite yummy. I had a full breakfast – eggs, bacon, toast, hash browns. They were cooked to my exact request. Not sure what they do to scrambled eggs, but they were great.
I believe this was my kids’ favorite place by far in Bentonville Arkansas. Trash Creamery is a 80’s dream. So many toppings and mixed perfectly! At Trash Creamery you get to create custom combinations of cereal, candy, ice cream, and FUN! The atmosphere is an 80’s theme that reminds me of being a kid. There is plenty of 80’s decor and games to play while you wait for your customer ice cream.
All in all Bentonville has some pretty amazing places to eat. You won’t be disappointed with the selection they have. You’ll be coming back for more.
