The Kitchen at The Preacher’s Son is led by Neal Gray- a native of Arkansas with tenures at Stone Barns in NY and The French Laundry in Napa. We feature Local, Sustainable, Farm to Table cuisine, friendly and professional service paired with cutting edge cocktails and a deep wine list. The Preacher's Son offers stunning stained glass windows by George Dombek, garden patio seating, a rooftop bar and a fine speakeasy - Undercroft Bar.

In 1849, John Ruskin wrote The Seven Lamps of Architecture which spread Gothic Revivalism across the western world. In 1904, that same style is used for the First Christian Church in downtown Bentonville. We proudly connect these moments at The Preacher’s Son.

Come join us for a memorable night !

    The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was the best I’ve had in my 3 years in NWA. The drinks were very good as well. Growing up Catholic, seemed kind of odd to see a bar where the alter was 😁. Once the weather is better, will go to their rooftop bar. We will definitely be going back.

    Best redone church I have been in; wonderful architecture and fun stained glass. The cauliflower salad was delicious. Mussels were good, but a tad skimpy, with one not opening. Aside from the cauliflower salad, I thought menu choices were a tad predictable, but I was judging from the standpoint of visiting from a bigger food city than Bentonville. Overall very good, but expensive for predictable.

    We went here as a date night. The ambiance is very unique, in a remodeled church, turned restaurant. My husband had the strip steak selection, and he was satisfied and said it was excellent. I ordered the trout, which was butterflied and cooked perfectly. Probably my favorite part of the experience is that the restaurant offers excellent selections of brut sparkling wines, even by the glass. That is extremely difficult to find throughout the area, so it was a nice touch to an otherwise already outstanding meal.

    The noise level is unacceptable; we absolutely couldn’t carry on a conversation which is very discouraging for a lovely restaurant in a great space with yummy food. 3 (2 lamb meatballs and 1 gnocchi) of our 4 entrees were delicious as was the beet salad we all shared; the strip steak was over was cooked v what was ordered. The sauce on the steak was very good but the steak itself was not flavorful. We overall love the food when we come to Preachers Son but the noise is a huge negative which may drive us away in the future if not addressed.

    Fantastic ambiance and service. My food was good and my partner's was average to below average - particularly for the price. I would recommend for a night out because of the stellar atmosphere, but the quality of the food compared to the price keeps the Preacher's Son from being a go-to spot.

    Very original beautiful space, delicious food, knowledgeable service. Kind of pricey for no extras of a nice bread basket and a limited dessert selection, but the food was good. Biggest turn off was the hostess or manager (?) wearing athletic shoes, crop athletic pants, drawstring sweatshirt and hair in dirty bun checking people in and bussing tables. I don’t think the restaurant dress code allows this for its patrons, why is an employee presenting this way? She was a big turn off to our experience

    The menu selections were so diverse and all sounded amazing! The cauliflower appetizer was multilayered deliciousness! I had the carpaccio appetizer for my entree and it was so well thought through—lots of nice flavors and textures! The prices, however, have really gone up! We’ve been pretty spoiled to reasonable fine dining prices! Not anymore!

    The food was delicious, but too pricey for what you receive. The interior was attractive; however, overly loud due to acoustics. We had cocktails, starter, and dinner. One of the "signature" drinks had apple shrub as an ingredient, but was this was not stated in the description. I had to send it back because of the apple "vinegar" smell and flavor. I ordered a glass of wine to replace it; however, the manager did not give the server permission to take it off of the over priced tab. The server was competent.
