Good food, fun atmosphere!

Jackie B Goode's Uptown Cafe-A fun place to eat with live entertainment and good food. Simple sandwiches and ice cream shakes and sundaes was what we had that night. Live singer doing Christmas songs and other music made it entertaining too! We loved it!

Ate here for lunch. Lots of fried food so not many healthy choices. Didn't smell like a grease pit, though, which is great. Fried fish was tough. Didn't have any of the ice cream choices. Probably won't do this again for lunch but maybe better for dinner and entertainment?

The service was exceptional, the food was great and served hot! That is something hard to find today. Also went to the George Strait show it was also outstanding. If your in Branson do not miss this!

We visited Jackie B Goodes which was neat to see inside and performer was good. Menu was smaller than another café we visited, and food was average. I do not think we would go again.

Decided to drop by on a whim based on the building exterior. Was not in the mood for a breakfast buffet; however, I got one as menu is not an option. That said, it was a great buffet for $7. Typical over cooked buffet scrambled eggs; however, there was also fruit, ham, hash browns, waffles, biscuits/toast/gravy, etc. Other than the... More

Very nice building and atmosphere and I liked the live music but my boyfriend wasn't a fan. Staff is super nice and the service is great. Bacon is either too floppy or too crispy but everything else was good. Great breakfast buffet with a lot of fresh fruit. It wouldn't be a regular place for me but for sure try... More

Excellent food, nice big portions, excellent value. One waitress in particular, Lisa, is exceptionally kind and very customer service oriented. The only negative eating here is, the music is so loud that people who want to talk while they eat, cannot do so without yelling. You know it is deafening when your ears are aching while there. Every time we... More

Went by for breakfast. Had done a buffet the morning before so really wanted a menu breakfast but that was not an option. The buffet was Ok. It was only $7 so that helped a little. There was a singer there at 9am. A little too loud and too early for that.

We ate two evening meals here while in Branson. Both times they had excellent live entertainment. The food is good, the prices reasonable and the service prompt.

Uptown Café – Our large group of 13+ recently dined here for a late dinner after a day in Silver Dollar City. The restaurant was fairly empty because it was later but the kitchen service was fairly quick. Our server was a tad on the slow side; salads and soups coming out long after we ordered and too close to... More
