Bella Vista offers a number of establishments dedicated to great food and a good time for family and friends. How far do you need to drive? How does five minutes sound—by bike or car?
BV Bar & Grill
With a beautiful view of the Country Club golf course and Bella Vista landscape, BV Bar and Grill is a great destination for families, groups, and couples. Delicious bar food and comfort style meals all priced under $16. Full service bar with incredible daily Happy Hour specials and a dozen TV’s to catch your favorite sport. Serving lunch and dinner seven days a week.
Chicago Style Pizza
Long day. Nobody wants to cook. Everybody wants something different. Gusanos has a full bar, leaves Chicago deep dish pizza in the dust, and boasts a menu that runs the gamut from the kid’s menu hot dogs to strawberry spinach salad with enough meatballs and wings in between to satisfy whatever appetite a day with only a couple of power bars might have whipped up.
Gusano’s is a casual family-friendly atmosphere with a sports bar vibe and video games for the kids. Located in the iconic Cunningham Shopping Center it’s just off 71 and easy to find. Stop off at Allen’s Food Market on the way ‘home’ to the cabin by the trail and stock up with coffee, bacon, eggs, and freshly baked blueberry muffins for breakfast.
JJ’s is a great place to unwind and refuel. Local bands—and those just passing through—keep the pace lively. Choose from a full and varied menu designed to tempt you through lunch—or dinner—or make a night of it. Eat your ‘guilty pleasure’ way through a menu ranging from rib-eye steak fajita quesadilla appetizers right through Southwest grilled catfish and on to homemade cheesecake. You’ve burned the calories today, right? Don’t worry. There are salads on the menu too.
And a bonus for your budget. Kids eat free!
On the way back home in the morning, stop at JJ’s for a real homestyle southern fav, Chicken and Waffles. Sunday brunch is served until 2.
Casual Dining – Lakeside
Looking for beautiful surroundings with a casual vibe? Try dining lakeside for the perfect outing with friends or that special evening with your significant other. Weekly Wine & Spirit Tastings can help you discover your new favorite. Each weekend, Lakepoint’s team picks a different theme of several wines and spirits, which allows you to learn more about specific producers, regions and varietals.
Breakfast out part of the vacation plan? Since when is your idea of a vacation breakfast a carton of yogurt, a stale pastry, and luke-warm coffee? Maybe when it’s ‘free’ or it’s cost is buried in your room charge or you have to be on the road by 7:00 to make a 9 am meeting. How does a mushroom/sausage/swiss cheese omelet, a blueberry short stack, and a bottomless cup of hot coffee sound—while watching the morning rise from behind the Ozark hills and spread across the golf course? Papa Mike’s opens at 7:30 every day with a full-breakfast menu and is open every day until 7:00 offering a wide range of great food at great prices.
