You get sung to while you eat. We always come back because the food and music are wonderful. They have old fashioned cars and décor. Staff are friendly and helpful. Love it.

We stopped for lunch at 12:15 not having any idea that there was a show. Mario was singing a variety of songs to recorded music. It was delightful. He also visited all the tables to introduce himself. Tips were optional, but hey, a tip and a Ruben sandwich a great value. Food and service was perfect, too.

Tasty food, good service. Typical breakfast fare. The cinnamon rolls were especially good. The decor is 50s diner. There were signs saying that the singers work for tips but there were no singers at breakfast the day we were there.

Went in for breakfast and came out thinking wow what a place. The food was very good. it was a buffet but fresh, a lot to chose from and hot. We had live singers as we ate. It was a lot of fun, we even hung around for a while to listen to the songs. Fun!

We came in at the same time as two buses! The hostess quickly ushered us to a separate area and the waitress was very swift at taking care of us before the bus people gave their order. We wanted to split a meal and a malt. They gave us extra plates to help us share. They also have a singer... More

It was pretty good. Nothing sent my taste buds into overdrive or anything but it was good. I had a cheese burger and fries. The burger was thin (which I really like) and the fries were shoe string.

Food was very good. Ate the breakfast buffet. It was very reasonably priced. Fruit was very fresh and cinnamon rolls excellent. Got to listen to singing while dining. Service was excellent and would definitely return.

My wife and I stopped in here because it was near our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the wait staff, the atmosphere and the food. They serve typical diner fare, but have a very good selection. We also enjoyed genuine sodas with lime ice cream in them! I think an Elvis impersonator was entertaining in the next room, but... More

We ate several meals at Jackie B. Goode's Uptown Café while in Branson. The breakfast buffet is great and the price is hard to beat! We went for lunch on Friday so we could see and hear one of Branson's best entertainers - John Sager. John is not just a wonderful singer, but an entertainer as well. With two buses... More
