The food is down home cooking with class. They have their own spin on all of your favorites like fried chicken... read more

Great food, with a very good selection of entrees and sandwiches! Great service! A very good bar selection. I do recommend reservations. In the same building (below) is the Buzzard Bar. No reservations taken for that, it's first come, first serve, which sometimes is a hassle.

Nice view and atmosphere with ok food. We ate there on a Friday night and were seated in 10 minutes, our food came an hour and ten minutes later. The waiter kept telling all the tables around us that the kitchen served by the bar below and room service that's why it took so long. For the price I wasn't... More

This restaurant at Big Cedar Resort has a friendly staff and interesting interior. The food is good but overpriced. The menu hasn’t changed in a long time and taste and presentation are just so-so. Might need a new chef.

We had rented a cabin at Big Cedar with spa treatments and knew we would not want to drive back into Branson. We had the breakfast buffet after our morning spa treatments and it was fantastic. We don't usually do buffets and I struggle with using the word fantastic for a buffet but it truly was. The omelet station was... More

The service was very good. The decor is rustic as is most Big Cedar/Bass Pro properties. The buffet was well prepared with all the breakfast and dinner items you could want. There were carving stations for turkey and ham. There could have been a few more desert items. We will be back next year.

Devil's Pool Restaurant has great atmosphere and great food. The Sunday brunch seems to have everything a person could have a "hankering" for.
