Fun place to eat!

We really enjoyed the live entertainment of Mario Rosales! The food was very good and the service was great. Overall we had a very enjoyable time at Uptown Cafe. We will definitely visit when in Branson again.

The sign out front advertised "best breakfast buffet in Branson." If this was the best I sure would hate to see the worst! Wasn't super expensive, and waitress was friendly, but we could have eaten better food at a complimentary hotel breakfast.

Reasonably priced meals here with entertainment most of the evening. And there are dinner shows at certain times of the night. Such as the George Strait tribute show by Gordy and Debbie. Worth seeing for sure.

The food was very good, and the servers were great! Very clean, reasonably priced, and the 'show' of the servers singing was just the right touch!

This place is/seems to be an older cafe. It has the look of a cafe from the fifties. I had the chicken fried steak. It was good as well as the salad, roll, seasoned green beans and baked potato. Has short order items as well as meals. I believe that they have different entertainers there at night. The waitress was... More

We had breakfast at the Uptown Café and the food was excellent. It had a 50's Diner look inside. They had a lady singing while we ate.. She was great. Nice place to eat and enjoy some great music.

We stopped in for a bit of lunch and were surprised to find a singer up on a small stage, entertaining the diners. The restaurant is like a 50's diner, and the food is good. We went back on Friday to hear another entertainer that was recommended, and we weren't disappointed. Funny how they do this in Branson; like a... More
