A boozy, savory drink with interesting garnishes and just the right amount of spice? That’s what fans of the Bloody Mary love so much. Whether you’re having one with your brunch or just suffering a sudden craving, these eight restaurants make a Blood Mary that will knock your socks off, and most of them have glorious brunch offerings to boot.
1. Cafe Rue Orleans (Fayetteville)
Cafe Rue Orleans has one of the best brunches in the Natural State, and they’ve got a Bloody Mary that will knock your socks off. Pair it with any one of their New Orleans-style Cajun brunch offerings, like the Creole Shrimp & Grits. Your best bet for this combo is a Sunday morning.
Cafe Rue Orleans is located at 1150 North College Avenue in Fayetteville.
2. The Parsonage 322 (Jonesboro)
Set on Jonesboro’s very own adorable Main Street, Parsonage 322 specializes in farm-to-table excellence. This farm fresh eatery has brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, giving you the perfect chance to ask for one of their fine Bloody Marys.
The Parsonage 322 is located at 322 South Main Street in Jonesboro.
3. Red Door Restaurant (Little Rock)
Red Door Restaurant serves modern Southern cuisine, and of course a modern Southern menu wouldn’t be complete without a decent Bloody Mary. The Red Door’s award-winning weekend brunch menu includes all your brunch favorites, like steak and eggs and dreamy Belgian waffles. It also includes a truly spectacular bacon Bloody Mary.
The Red Door is located at 3701 Old Cantrell Road in Little Rock.
4. Greenhouse Grille
Greenhouse Grille is all about "conscious cuisine," which means you can count on premium ingredients from local farmers and artisans in every single dish. You don’t have to wait for brunch to try a Bloody Mary, as that drink is available when the bar is open. I will, however, highly recommend that Sunday brunch menu.
Greenhouse Grille is located at 481 South School Avenue in Fayetteville.
5. Mud Street Cafe (Eureka Springs)
Mud Street Cafe is hiding in a basement in Eureka Springs, and in that basement you’re going to find one of the most unique Bloody Marys in the Natural State. The cafe has a special ingredient that not many restaurants include—their Bloody Mary is made with moonshine.
Mud Street Cafe is located at 22 South Main Street in Eureka Springs.
6. South on Main (Little Rock)
South on Main doesn’t just have one Bloody Mary on the menu. They’ve got more than one Bloody Mary you can order from the menu, and a little Bloody Mary bar where you can fix up your own drink. Any Bloody Mary you choose will go perfectly with South on Main’s incredible Southern fare.
South on Main is located at 1304 Main Street in Little Rock.
7. Mockingbird Kitchen
Fresh and local is the name of the game at the Mockingbird Kitchen, and they make every single glorious Backyard Mary Bloody Mary with love. Their brunch menu is full of classics like brioche French toast and eggs benedict, making this a must-visit Sunday brunch spot for Bloody Mary enthusiasts and foodies alike.
Mockingbird Kitchen is located at 1466 North College Avenue in Fayetteville.
8. Maxine’s (Hot Springs)
The Bloody Marys at Maxine’s in Hot Springs offer a bit of fun. You see, if you’re there on a weekend and feeling adventurous, you can order the Loaded Bloody Mary and the bartender will garnish it with whatever he or she sees fit. Though Maxine’s is primarily known as a venue, they do have some lovely offerings in their restaurant as well.
Maxine’s is located at 700 Central Avenue in Hot Springs.
