Just checked the menu online, http://www.marketplacegrill.com/g-menus/Dinner.pdf (broken link), no beer. Was that location something else before it was a Marketplace???

Mike's Place downtown serves alcohol and the food is very good. I think it is a little more expensive than Marketplace. (When I went, I was on a job interview so price didn't matter to me ).

I concur with the Marketplace Grille choice. You cannot buy alcohol there, though. I ate there just a few days ago. It's one of few decent places in town where you don't have to be segregated into a tiny, claustrophobic area if you're not a drinker.

Mike's Place and its Italian companion Michelangelo's (both on Front Street downtown) also get rave reviews. And both offer alcohol.

Do not get talked into Mickey's (formerly Joey's). It's hideous.

---For those of you not familiar with 'the situation' in Conway, here's the lowdown. Faulkner County is a dry county. However, there's a private club loophole. Several restaurants now have private club licenses. They're able to sell alcohol. You pay a fee (typically $5) to join the club. However, the private club area has to be separate from the non-private club area. So you get segregated. At Outback, if you're not a private club person, you sit in a tiny closet. At El Chico, if you want to sit in a booth, you join the private club. At disgusting Mickey's, you have to join the private club just to eat their disgusting Long-John-Silver's-esque food. This whole 'private club' business may be the dumbest thing I've ever seen.

In order to get a drink at a restaurant, you must buy a membership. They are usually $5. Mike's Place, Michelangelos, Outback, Ruby Tuesday, Pias, Gusanos... are just a few of the places where they serve alcohol.

I am so ready to get out of this place. My wallet is full of these stupid membership cards.

Nice but not a dive? Not too expensive?

This, my friend, is why they make Ruby Tuesday and Chilis.
