We came to hear John Sager sing

Several friends and I visited here to hear John Sager. He is a wonderful performer that we see down in the Rio Grande Valley with the other winter Texans. The waitress was Andrea and so nice to us. We didn't get to hear John sing as someone else was in his spot. But we enjoyed a wonderful club... read more

A really neat old 50's style dinner that has a really cool décor. Their menu and food is good in 50's style atmosphere. They have daily entertainment and the staff is great. Can't wait to go back.

My family and I dined at Jackie B. Goode's on our recent visit to Branson. I was not all that impressed. Sorry to those who are fans. The food was over priced (family of 5 each had an entree that totaled $8.99 or more). Kids meals ring in at a hefty $8.99. Granted that kids meal came with a sundae... More

Good food. Seem a little dull inside, but it is a nice little 50's style restaurant that I expected to be much busier. Across from the Titanic. I would likely look around for something else.

We are here because we had a voucher. Food was fine, diner like. Service was fine, but ice cream was great! Only complaint was the banana on my husband's split was very brown and gross. That's why it gets three stars, who uses brown bananas in a split?
