We visited there a couple of times during our Branson stay. The food was good, the service friendly and prompt, and the prices very reasonable especially for Branson. There was a singer who entertained singing country and pop hits. She was very good. We had a very enjoyable meal.

Ambience is good and the fifties theme and music. Nice setting and location. The food prices are a bit prices especially kids meals which are $7.99 for hamburger and the adult burger parties kind of thin. Will visit one more time and try something different.

I was a little awkward but I went ahead and timed our server and it took about 7 mins for us to get our drinks and 11 mins to get our food. The food was good enough to eat

Good food with quick and friendly service near all the attractions on the strip in Branson. They were quite busy and we were in a hurry to get to a show and when they found that out, they accommodated our needs very well.

Take a nostalgic visit to the 1950's and 1960's with a visit to the Uptown Cafe. Plate lunch meals or diner-type burgers and sandwiches. Decent service & live music. Reasonably priced.

This café is like an old diner with entertainment. It really is a fun place to go. I am not hep on their burgers, a lot like steak & shake but a little better. There ice cream shakes are really good but a little pricey.
