Description: A casual lakeside restaurant located in the DeGray Lake Resort State Park Lodge is open to the public, and has a seating capacity of 114 guests. Enjoy a beautiful sunrise during a morning breakfast or the soft touch of a sunset dinner for two. From small snacks to a more lasting choice, the Shoreline menu has just the right dish for all occasions. Enjoy great quality food for a reasonable price. We offer a full menu plus banquet catering services for meetings, retreats, weddings and reunions. A courtesy dock on the island makes the Shoreline Restaurant convenient for visitors to DeGray Lake.

Restaurant was a disappointment. Rice was not cooked all the way on vegetable plate; quesadillas were mostly tortillas--not much chicken or cheese--very bland. Alcoholic beverages can only be consumed in the restaurant unless you order an entire bottle.

Thank you for your feedback about your recent visit to The Shoreline Restaurant. We are disappointed your dining experience did not meet your expectations.
Please accept our apologies on behalf of The Shoreline Restaurant and the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. When possible we appreciate guest speaking to their server or management so problems can be corrected to provide the best quality for our guests. We continue to work with an outside consultant team to evaluate our restaurant operation and assist with training and recommendations for improvement. I have contacted the Food and Beverage Director and these items will be addressed at the next staff meeting.
The Shoreline Restaurant is able to offer alcoholic beverages through a private club restaurant license that is limited by the state to areas that serve food such as the restaurant and conference center.
Once again, please accept our apologies on not meeting your expectations on food and we appreciate your honest feedback.

My husband and I were staying very close to the state park and decided to try out the restaurant!! It was beautiful, clean and we were seated at a table overlooking the water! The food was delicious, nice size portions and very reasonably priced ! The dessert was great also!! We had a very friendly and attentive waitress. Will definitely go back next time we visit the area

I stayed at the lodge for one night and had dinner in the Shoreline Restaurant. I was traveling alone and felt very comfortable. I was seated facing the beautiful view of the lake. The food was excellent and the service was pleasant and efficient. Very nice experience!
