We make an annual trip to northwest Arkansas and War Eagle Mill every fall. The valley where the mill is located is beautiful and the mill is definitely a step back in time. There is a restaurant on the top floor where we always have breakfast, then shop on the lower two floors. It was always a part of our trip to which we looked forward. This fall, when we had breakfast (there were 2 of us) we each had a biscuit and gravy, 2 pieces of bacon and a small coffee and it was $20. I was shocked! (This isn't a city, this is in the middle of nowhere and other local restaurants do not charge this much.) They have definitely raised the prices and the food wasn't very good. It was so disappointing! When we went down on the lower floors to shop, the amount of inventory seemed much less than previous years. One of the biggest disappointments was the change of their flours and milled grains from the cloth "sack" bags to paper bags. This really hurt the charm of the products. Their explanation was they are going "green". I think they are taking the cheap route. Overall, very sad to see the changes in a historical place. While we will visit next fall because it is a beautiful area, we won't dine in the restaurant. There are too many excellent places to dine in the northwest AR area where the food and value are so much better.
