Venue Info

This is one tourist trap that's worth making the trip to. Set inside of a decommissioned 737, Walnut Ridge's Parachute Inn (get it?) is known for both it's outrageous decor and for it's Friday night catfish buffet. This place is definitely not fine dining, but the kitschy interior and friendly staff makes it a destination restaurant you'll want to return to every time you're in Arkansas. There's no booze served in this Americana landmark, though, so don't go here trying to drink and fly.
