pricey but friendly

We ordered a pizza, salad and dessert from the restaurant while staying at the property. Speedy service for pick-up, the food was really good but it was expensive for what it was. We would still order from here based on convenience.

Even if you aren't staying on the Big Cedar property, it's worth the drive from Branson. Where else will you find smoked trout as an appetizer or chicken fried steak the size of a hubcap? A little pricy, but worth it for the atmosphere. Dinner won't come quickly, but yummy and hot is better than fast.

Never disappoints... Top quality food without even leaving the resort!!! We have made the trek off the resort at times to see if there is anything better and we always end up back at Devil's Pool. Great Food and atmosphere! Great Service!

We enjoyed a good lunch next to a warm fireplace on a snowy day. My husband enjoyed a big, juicy burger. I got the chicken liver appetizer. While the cheddar mashed potatoes were good, it was more like chicken liver niblets - very small. Due to the weather conditions, they were short staffed, but we still received excellent service!

Went on a Monday night. We have been going to big cedar for years. Had reservations for 7. They did not have our reservation but took us. We noticed the restaurant was barely occupied by guests. We have been to Devils pool before but not recently. And have usually had good experiences. NOT THIS TIME. We had prime rib or... More

It used to be that when you stayed at Big Cedar, you were pretty much stuck with Devil’s Pool for your culinary needs. And in its day, admittedly, it was pretty nice. However, now that Top of The Rock is open, I’m afraid that Devil’s Pool is now merely the most convenient. Sure, it’s still elegant and the food is... More

This is first dining at its best. The atmosphere is the best ever. We have dined there many times never to be disappointed. The food is fantastic.

We had dinner here one night when staying down there. It was pretty good - not as nice as Osage (Top of the Rock) but still the same prices. Had I known that I would have gone back to Osage. The atmosphere was nice but for the prices of the food would have expected it to be a little more... More

We tried the ribs, soup, salad, meatl loaf sandwich and cheese steak sandwich. While all were good, the clear winner was the bison meat loaf sandiwch. I have... More

We ate breakfast here and glad we did. I had a delicious breakfast sandwich with 2 eggs, loaded with ham and cheese with breakfast potatoes. My husband had french toast and was equally happy with his choice. Our server, Linda, had worked there for 20 years was very attentive and friendly, The views were beautiful. I would certainly recommend.
