The breakfast buffet does not have much to choose from. We will not be returning. They only had like five things on their buffet. The food was not very good either.

We got into branson late and most places were closed. The food was like something I'd cook at home. Cold french fries to top it off. Very plain and simple. Nothing to write home about at all! Our server was also very distracted and clearly didn't want to be there. Can't recommend it.

Overall experience was horrible. Got seated right away, then took forever to get a drink. Food took over 45mins. and waitress would never come back to check on you. Would not recommend.

My 90+ mother, 20+ son and 50+ self visited the Jackie B. Goode's Uptown Cafe on our way to see a show. Little did we know that we would be entertained right there at the Uptown Cafe with talented singing. All three ages enjoyed our experience at the cafe. The food was very good diner style; you'll never make it... More

Staff was very friendly and lots of food choices! Enjoyed the entertainers that sang as you ate. Cafe is right on the strip and you can walk from many of the hotels. Nice they stay open after the evening shows so you can have a treat before going to bed!!!!

Went to this restaurant for the very 1st time last week while on vacation in Branson & ended up eating there 3 times. All the staff is very nice & food is good. Had the best broccoli soup I had ever eaten & found out they made it themselves. There is a wall with pics/medals & telling about the young... More

We used to eat here often when in Branson. The prices have gone up, the service is worse, and the place is getting tired and run down. The food isn't bad, but it's not worth the prices. They used to have one of the best breakfast buffets in town, but the last time we tried it it wasn't special and... More

We should have known to go elsewhere when we entered the restaurant and it apeared to be unkept. The only reason we stayed was because one of the children really wanted to eat here. The live singer had a good voice and paused in the middle of her song to greet us as we walked in. The food was adequate,... More

We've been coming to Branson for about 10 years & have at least one meal at Jackie B Goods! The new ELVIS SHOW IS AWESOME! Boy, can James sing..... How Great Thou Art gave us all goose bumps! Add this show to your list for sure!
