Our Top Five Favorite Restaurants in Hot Springs

May 22nd, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

At Lookout Point,  we provide comprehensive pampering and concierge services. Which means that we make dining suggestions every day. Fortunately, Hot Springs enjoys a multitude of really good restaurants!

Here’s our FAVORITE FIVE and WHY we love them:

1. Luna Bella. Fabulous food, artfully and freshly prepared by a top-notch chef, in a lovely setting. Added bonus: very convenient and close to Lookout Point.  Type of food: Italian American Fusion. Try: pear endive salad or buttery scallops.

2. Bohemia. Described as continental cuisine, and located north of the historic downtown in a funky building. Chef/owner really cares about his food. Try: Petit Jean lamb (local).

3. Central Park Fusion. Located in the historic downtown, featuring world class dining. Type of food: fusion from around the globe. Try: one of their steaks. Note: nice decor but can get quite loud on busy nights.

4. Rolando’s. Downtown. Check out their outdoor dining option, tucked into the side of a mountain, with live music in the evenings. Type of food: nuevo Latino. Try: the cubano platter.

5. J & S Italian Villa. Great views of the lake from this friendly restaurant. Bonus: piano bar with live entertainment, plus it’s close to the inn. Type of food: Italian. Try: chicken verona.

Of course, we’ll be delighted to make reservations for you when you are enjoying a great stay at our Hot Springs B&B/ inn!

Hot Springs Cool July Events

July 14th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

This weekend, July 15-17, you’ll find some pretty cool stuff happening in our lovely city of Hot Springs, Arkansas. Not to mention that as I write this post, it’s raining and temp dropped 30 degrees. Sweet!

Here’s some fun stuff:

Tour Lake Hamilton

  • Captain Ray provides a 90-minute boat tour of Lake Hamilton for guests of our Hot Springs B&B. Tour departs at 10 AM, and returns to the inn by 11:30.
  • Antique Walk, this Friday July 15 from 4-8 pm in the historic downtown. Explore some unique antique shops, then dine at one of our fav restaurants. We suggest Rolando’s for delicious Nuevo Latino fare, or Central Park Fusion, both within easy walking distance of Antique Walk.
  • Moonlight Stroll/Full Moon Hike. Great opportunity for a guided night hike, led by a National Park Interpreter. Yes, Hot Springs National Park is right downtown. Meet at the summit of West Mountain.  Fun!
  • Miss Arkansas Pageant. See the crowning event on Saturday night at 7:30pm.
