Good place to eat

Very nice place to eat, with good view. Service is good and great atmosphere. We enjoyed breakfast and watching them make our omelets. They also have very good pizza.

We ordered the brisket sandwich and the pulled pork sandwich and both were very good after a morning of fishing on Table Rock Lake. We ate on the balcony and watched 2 geese with their babies on the water.

After reading several poor reviews, we went to this place anyway and were very disappointed. The window dressing of a nice setting is ruined by poor service and worse food. The pork chop was like shoe leather and the cobbler had just been taken out of the fridge and never heated. Avoid this one.

The Devil's Pool breakfast buffet is a must for the Big Cedar experience and Sunday a must. In the expanse of Top of the Rock restaurants, the area may be feeling the stress of pro wait staff shortage, so just ask for Linda for a

Four of us dined on a Friday evening--two ordered chicken livers, one ordered catfish filet and one ordered ribs. The livers had poor flavor and nothing like onions, bacon, bell pepper to enliven them. The catfish was very average. The ribs were incredibly tough. For a restaurant at a hotel that is a long drive from anywhere else to eat,... More

We took our twin teenage boys here while on spring break; shared smoked trout appetizer, well done. Also chicken livers were a hit. Dinner was great, trout, fried chicken & pork chop; also get Mac n cheese worth the extra dollars. Awesome view; Donel was a super waitress!! She was very helpful. Hubby ordered the restaurant's special Manhattan cocktail; yummy.... More

The weather was nice enough for us to have lunch on the deck with a view of the lake. We enjoyed our food - my meatloaf sandwich was excellent. The service was attentive. The prices were a little more than we usually do at lunch or I would have given it 5 stars.

Breakfast at the Devil's Pool Restaurant was a mess. Two of us took the buffet. We found sufficient offerings but many of the items were gone (empty bowls). Two others of us ordered from the menu. It took forever to get the food and then the orders were cold, dried up and incomplete. The waitress seemed really flustered by the... More
