Big Whiskey’s opens New Restaurant location in Northwest Arkansas

Springfield, MO – Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar® will open its newest restaurant franchise location in Bentonville, AR on Friday, March 10. Shane Miller of Bentonville, owner of the new restaurant location, is the parent company’s first franchisee and has been working on the new outlet for over a year.

“We’re finally ready to introduce Northwest Arkansas to the great food, drinks and atmosphere that’s made Big Whiskey’s a legend in southwest Missouri,” Miller said.  The new restaurant & bar anchors the retail center at 214 SE Walton Boulevard across from Baymont Inn & Suites near Rainbow Curve.  “Our location is convenient to everyone in the area for lunch, happy hour, dinner, and more. We’re also open late until 1:30am.”

Miller’s first experience with Big Whiskey’s was as a guest while studying at Drury University in Springfield.  After graduating in 2008, Miller worked at Wal-Mart’s home office, first in finance and then in real estate where he developed relationships with food chains leasing space inside superstores. “I’ve always loved the food, people & fun environment at Big Whiskey’s. After moving to Northwest Arkansas, I saw a real opportunity for the concept to flourish here,” he explained.

Big Whiskey’s menu has broad appeal featuring hand-cut steaks, craft burgers, award-winning wings, garden-fresh salads, street tacos & quesadillas, wraps & specialty sandwiches, seafood & chicken entrees, ribs, signature appetizers and kid’s meals.  The massive bar features over 100 whiskeys, 20 beers on tap and 25 large HD TV’s.  “We’re not a sports bar but we definitely celebrate sports,” Miller added.

The new restaurant has indoor seating for 250 patrons and outside seating under a covered patio for 60. It features the same great ambience and boundless flavor as the original Big Whiskey’s – a great place for family and friends to get together.
