Great Breakfast

I love going to Uptown for their breakfast buffet. Nothing fancy but they have all the good breakfast staples. Waffles, eggs, 3 meats, fruit, hashbrowns....good stuff. The wait staff is very friendly and I love the live music they have. Reasonable prices too!

How can you improve on perfection? Jackie B. Goode's Uptown Cafe does it! Last year we watch Gordie and Debbie, they were great. This year we stopped earlier in the afternoon and listened to another of there live entertainers. Our daughter loves to sing and clap with the entertainers and they enjoy her happiness. Our daughter got the children's meal... More

The only thing keeping this from 4 'stars' was the long wait time for a seat. After looking they may have been short on staff. We were a party of four adults and two children, a three year old and a six week old. It was about 2pm and we had a 20 minute wait. We were starved. Wife and... More

I reviewed this several years ago and gave it poor reviews. We were with several other families in Branson 2 weeks ago and they out voted me to go here. Well I must say I was pleasantly surprised with my dinning experience. The food was very good and our waiter did an excellent job. The kids really enjoyed the "old... More

Stopped in for lunch. Michele was our waitress. Excellent service, very attentive to our needs. Made me smile when she knocked on the window and waved to us after we had left (I left a generous tip. She deserved it). The food was generous in serving size and was very good. I will definitely stop in again when we return... More

It's a Cafe or at least someones attempt at one. It's burgers and fries, shakes and malts. Really the food was nothing special.

Let's just say I was not impressed with the service at all when I went. It was sub par and the food only average. Now while you can not blame a whole restaurant for a single waitress, I have to tell you I have been more than once in order to be fair.. different waitress each time... still not cool!... More

Food was very good and large portions. Fun place from the decor to the singers that you can listen to while you enjoy your meal. Be sure to save room for the dessert!!!
