We stopped here for lunch while out on a motorcycle ride with another couple. None of us had been there before but had heard of it by reputation. It has a great reputation because it's a great place. Excellent service, food and view. We will...More

We stayed 4 nights in the Mountain Oak cabin. The cabin was all the way at the end of the resort and very private. The view was awesome and you are right on the river. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable....More

Please note that I am ONLY reviewing the restaurant at Gaston's (not Gaston's as a whole). My family has had a house in Bull Shoals since the late-1940's, so I've spent my childhood (and adulthood) visiting Gaston's for meals between the 1980's and present. The...More
