We had lunch there. The prime rib sandwich was great. We liked it so well, we came back the next day for the breakfast buffet. It was just ok. There was live entertainment at both breakfast and lunch. The staff was attentive and friendly.

Our hotel did not have complimentary breakfast so every morning we loaded up the baby to find some place to eat. We passed by and decided to try. The breakfast consisted of eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, waffles and fruit. It was $6.99/pp, so it was a good value. We would eat here again, just not every morning.

Since the entertainment was free, we were not disappointed. However, when we called before going to lunch, we were told entertainer started at 12:00. So we arrived about 11:40, wanting to get seated, drinks and our order placed before "the show". Well, we got our food, the entertainer was still setting up at 12:40 as we were way done eating,...

We usually avoid breakfast buffet, but it was our last meal before leaving Branson, MO. And, we were glad we stopped. The singer was entertaining and the food was quite good. There were many choices with the eggs and waffles being our favorite. The price was very reasonable as well. The atmosphere works with that fifties look and there are... More

Prices were way too high for the quality of food. We had to find our waitress numerous times. When we were leaving the manager and our waitress were eating Domino's by the register. We will not go back.

We stopped in for lunch and had a good lunch of grilled cheese and a BLT. When in the area and looking for lunch I would suggest here. The service was good and the prices too.

First time to visit this place and will definitely go again. Such a fun atmosphere to eat and the live music was great. Got there special of the day and it was really good. Will say its kinda loud if you sit near the stage but for me not an issue.
