Welcome to Eleven, the restaurant at Crystal Bridges.
We specialize in modern American comfort food with an emphasis on traditions that hail from the “High South” region…the Ozarks. High South cuisine follows a long culinary history steeped in generations of food preparation centered on locally-produced ingredients. Careful never to manipulate the ingredients beyond their intended flavor profile, our chefs are nevertheless able to transform some of the simplest, most basic Southern staples into sophisticated presentations of earthy, rustic flavors and textures. The cuisine of Eleven not only nourishes, but tells a story—a story of the American spirit, inspired by the artworks, natural surroundings, and regional history connected to our Museum.

I wasn't sure about ordering the Shrimp and Grits, a distinctly Southern dish that I'd not tried. Me and my friends were all very pleased. My only suggestion — create and sell a cookbook with some of the recipes from your menu!

We chose to have brunch here because we were visiting Crystal Bridges and it was convenient. The location is lovely...terrific views of the amazing museum and its surroundings through enormous windows on both sides. The food was adequate. My friend's quiche was lukewarm and dry. My shrimp and grits were tasty but too oily (I've had better, but that was in Charleston!). Perhaps it's better to stick with simpler dishes like burgers and sandwiches. The bloody mary's were CHEAP ($5) especially by New York standards! The meal was fine, however, for where we were, and the service and ambiance were very good. They do book up, so reservations are recommended!

Although the ambience is stunning, I am not sure it made up for the overpriced average to poor quality food. The pork chop was almost inedible as it was so tough and the lamb was very fatty. However on the bright side the chicken was pretty good, but too expensive for chicken. It is a shame as it is such a lovely setting.

It was my wife's birthday. It was a perfect day to spend indoors as the area experienced very heavy storms that day. We really enjoyed visiting the museum and found the art to be beautiful. It was an incredible journey back in time that we all seem to overlook in our busy lives, especially, the Soul of the Nation. We loved the peaceful and interesting ambience of the museum as well as, the dining experience being both food and staff. Thanks, Scott & Julita Winter - Fort Smith

Eleven is a wonderful experience, and I'll definitely be back. The menu, which features special dishes that coincide with the exhibits at the museum, is creative and fun. ..and the cocktails are superb! I enjoyed two visits thus far, and look forward to many more. We're so happy to have something so exciting and fun to experience, so accessible to us here in NWAR.

Food was good, but not very big portions at all! Paid $29 for New York strip and just got 3 slices. 3 tiny carrots, half a stalk of celery and 1.5 red potatoes. Asked for med-well done and got no red in the meat. Not up to the usual standards. Music was excellent.

I have always loved the food and the appearance. Several in my party were disappointed in the new style shrimp & grits. It was my favorite dish, but we did not like the new recipe.

Delicious dinner beautifully and graciously served. Happy hour drinks and appetizers were innovative and delicious as were our main courses! The dinning area is lovely and serene with water and gallery views. It delightful to dine there at sunset. Though we’re a two day drive away is our second visit to the museum and will return at the first opportunity.

Really poor experience. Scallops were over cooked and chewy and the waitress was terribly slow inspire of only about 5 tables being occupied and not all of them being her responsibility. The atmosphere was great and and the views over the water are amazing. Wish the meal matched the location.

Orders were wrong, they took a really long time to fix, food was meh like they had been sitting for awhile. The chicken Marsala was not anywhere near as described, no gnocchi, tiny piece of chicken that was drenched in a pepper infused oil of some kind. Where was the cream sauce? Kind of disappointed, seriously.

We have eaten here a few times and really enjoy the space. Although we enjoyed our food, drinks and surroundings, we think they need to work on varying their menu. For a restaurant like this, we also think the shrimp and grits need a better presentation, especially for this type of restaurant. We will definitely return and recommend going, we just think there need to be a few improvements.

We went for brunch, the service was great, food selection was good and priced were very reasonable. We both had Shrimp and Grits and they were delicious! We had them add the Poached eggs which were really a nice addition. We also had an order of the Figgy Cake Dessert which was also great. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone

Service was impeccable. Server’s knowledge of food and menu was impressive. Food, though, was a disappointment. Chicken Marsala was tasteless and no lingering flavor of Marsala wine. Risotto was bland. Beer cheese soup had some flavor. Beautiful location. Crystal Bridges just needs to make the food world class, like the museum, its art, and building.
