A MUST VISIT FOR HOLIDAY ISLAND!!!! We have been to gaskins cabin every year since 2005 when we visit our vacation home and it is our favriot resturant in the whole of holiday island Arkansas!! Their steaks are absolutley amazing and I am a huge picky steak eater!! The service was fast and great and very friendly! It is so beautiful inside such a perfect little place to just nestle up to your spouse and relax while you eat on the most freshest steak!
August 27th 2005 we returned to Gaskins to enjoy this restaurant again and were VERY DISAPPOINTED. The restaurant is under NEW OWNERSHIP and though the menu is mostly the same the service and quality were INEXCUSABLY POOR. We showed up for dinner at 7:50 pm were told we would have a 20-30 minute wait, the wait was only a little longer than this, but we had been forgotten about as they sat other parties ahead of us and then realized they had missed us. Once seated it was 7 minutes before we received our drink order and almost 20 minutes before our dinner order was taken. We were both having Surf and Turf that came with soup or salad, and baked potato, rice or steak fries. Much to our disappointment they were OUT of Soup, baked potatoes and rice � so it was steak with salad and steak fries like it or not. The meal also included all the bread you could eat, of course they were low on that and ran out while we were waiting on our meal. The menu warned order steaks well done �at your own risk� this should have been one of many clues to leave and not order. I ordered mine well done as many restaurants have satisfactorily cooked well done steaks for me in the past including Gaskins on our first trip, not Gaskins under new ownership. It did not even appear that any attempt was made to cook the steak properly � it was charred, I could scrape the black burnt flakes off of it. When I cut into the middle (slightly less charred) the steak was extremely fatty. My husband's steak ordered medium to medium well ranged from medium rare to well done and was equally as fatty. When the waitress asked how our steaks were and we replied that we were displeased, she sent the owner/operator over. He merely explained that they butter baste their steaks and when you order them well done they are frequently burnt. This doesn't explain the poorly cooked other steak and the poor meat quality. He offered to bring us something else, but it was late and we had not received our food for almost an hour after being seated we really weren't interested in anything but leaving. And they seemed out of most everything. Most of the dinner was left on our plates as the steak fries had been under heating lamps a little too long by the time our plates made it to us. There was no offer to bring us free desert, discount the meal and really not much of an apology. We will not give this restaurant another chance. The wedding party of 8 next to us waited over an hour to receive their food after being seated.
My husband and I dined at Gaskins restaurant Nov.2 2002 on our wedding night. It was an excellent dining experience and possibly the best steaks we had ever eaten. We were sorry to not have this experience again.
Great steaks, awesome service. We have eaten there several times the past year, and every meal was good. The only disappointment was one time they had sold out of filets, their best cut of meat. Tried the prime instead, and it just wasn't the same.
We went there for our wedding dinner, which was set up ahead of time, and had horrible service. Yes, it was busy but it was like we were more in the way then anything. Also, instead of the one table as discussed, we had to seperate our wedding guests into two tables (only 16 total). We got an eye roll and attitude when asking for pop from the bartender and then drink orders were never asked for except when we went to the bar ourselves. It may be good food but not a good place to hold a wedding dinner.
wow thought we were going to a great steak house it was our wedding night wanted a good meal was a very nice atmosphere and service was good but Wow there prime rip (house special) had to be the worst i have ever had it was like a chewy piece of leather others were even complaining i have honestly had a better steak in a truck stop what kind of place adds in there own tip to the bill i will never return to this place again and i plain on coming back to eureka springs but will never eat there again save your money eat somewere else
We went there on our wedding night...was told it was a good place to go. My husband wanted a steak...so he got the prime rib..bad mistake..was so hard to eat and very fatty. Don't get me wrong it was a nice place as it self but when that happens and they even added the tip in right away when it was just us two. Will never go back there when we come back to Eureka Springs from Wisconsin.
This was our first time at Gaskins Cabins Steakhouse and we loved it. The food was great!! We were sat quickly and made to feel like we were visiting old friends and not just another customer in off the street. The service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. The new owners are wonderful!! Will be making frequent visits to this steak house!!
My Fiance lives in Springfield, MO. As a result, we have tried most of the upscale steak houses in the area. Gaskins Cabin is easily the best! The beef is awesome; flavorful, tender, juicy, huge portions, and cooked to perfection. This opinion comes from trying multiple cuts of beef at Gaskins Cabin. On top of fantastic beef, their sides are amazing as well. The Burgundy Mushroom is ridiculously good. The salads are very fresh. The deserts are fantastic! The Chocolate Bread Pudding is like nothing you have ever experienced. I say experienced, because it truly is something that you will never forget. As for the owners, Lisa and Bert, they are absolutely wonderful people and restauranteurs! They will do everything within their power to ensure that you have a great experience at Gaskins Cabin. Do yourself a favor and take a drive to Gaskins Cabin!

We had the pleasure of dining at Gaskins in July 2011.
The meal we ate was a dinner for two. The food was fanstastic. The service was outstanding.
The new owers and staff went out of thier way to ensure everyone had a positive dinning experence.
They still have a gravel driveway. It adds to the charm of the cabin steak house.
I shall eat there again.
