This Steamboat-Themed Restaurant In Arkansas Serves Boatloads Of Mouthwatering Seafood
You wouldn’t expect a steamboat in the middle of Arkansas, but Dondie’s White River Princess is exactly that. The stunning seafood restaurant is simply delicious. Let’s drool over the boatloads of food as we board this land-bound eatery.
The White River holds many hidden gems, but the most unexpected one resides nearby on the shore.
This tasty, yet underrated gem is on the east side of Des Arc.
This land-bound steamboat is Dondie's White River Princess.
The delicious steamboat-themed eatery is located at 203 E Curran St, Des Arc, AR 72040. Plan your trip in advance because they're only open three days a week. Thurs 5-8 p.m. and Fri-Sat 5-9 p.m.
The restaurant is decked out from mast to hull in proper steamboat decor.
There's even an oversized helm in front of the buffet.
We weren't kidding when we said Dondie's serves boatloads of food.
The Captain's Buffet is brimming with mouthwatering fried sides and fresh seafood options.
Which means your first plate could look like this:
The crawdad is the local favorite, but we can't resist the lightly fried catfish.
Dondie's doesn't stop at the buffet; made-to-order entrees are also available.
Start your dinner with a plate of fried gator tail or dive right in with the stuffed lobster shrimp.
The desserts are the real catch of the day.
The river monster of a menu has 15 different dessert choices. Pies, floats, cheesecakes, and this decadent brownie will leave you swimming in sugary delight.
Although you may be anchored to your seat afterwards, everyone needs a meal from Dondie's.
