Just finished the most incredible meal I think I have EVER eaten in my life at the 1891 steakhouse and bistro attached to the red rock river resort. The owners were so accommodating especially in trying to keep the place warm when it's -8° outside this new years eve. The prime rib and smashed potatoes are going to be a new craving of mine for years to come.

We met friends for dinner at the 1891 Steakhouse and Bistro here in Hot Springs. What an amazing dining experience!! First off, the ambience is so conducive to leisurely and relaxing dining. It is really beautiful. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

The food was absolutely fantastic with very friendly staff. I would go every time I was in the area!!
