1st time eating here

We had the pot roast and chicken pot pie it was very good but the pie looked like it was store bought. Location was easy to get in and out of. The waiter was very good and keep the tea glass and water full at all times. The food came out very quickly.

The chicken salad was mediocre. Way to much iceberg lettuce that was partly wilted and really white. Not enough chicken to greens ratio. I felt like a cow chewing its cud. I will say the cornbread was fantastic. Wasn't really busy because I went during a weekday but took a long time to get my food.

We ate here Friday afternoon August 28, 2015, because people had told us how good it was. First I would like to say the service was very good and the young man that waited on us was good. I had the big hamburger with fries which was very good. My husband had the chicken and dumplings he was very disappointed... More

One of our favorite places to eat it's become a tradition to return there every trip to Branson. Excellent food, excellent service and not bad prices for the amount of food you receive. Burgers are excellent!

This restaurant never disappoints with their cornbread being tops in my book! I had the sirloin steak with fries and slaw which was pretty good. It did have a bit of fat though that was not eatable at all. My friend had the new taco dish that starts with a cornbread base with taco meat and all the fixings on... More

Omg big servings of food, kids loved their food just watch out on the chicken bites can get peppery. The cat fish was a whole fish enough food for 2 adults. Love the cool farming items all over the wall. We had a late dinner left very full. Will go back again

We really enjoyed our McFarlain experience. we had the fried green tomatoes, and cat fish dinner and it was fantastic. The baked beans were some of the best we've ever had, they really were that good!

The family hadn't eaten at McFarlains since right after we had moved to the area, so we decided to give it a try for lunch between church and the Hamner show on Sunday. There are lots of folks who sing the praises of this restaurant, many on 1branson.com, unfortunately, I cannot, in good conscience, be one of them. It's not... More

Staff was very attentive, came by to check on us frequently. The steaks were tasty and chewy. Their cornbread with their butter was great
