Just like Mom's

Loved the meatloaf. Real comfort food gives the impression of "like Mom's". Great rural decor. Our waiter Tyler was very personable and attentive. Stop here at least once every visit to Branson.

Not only is this a must have when we visit Branson, but this past trip we ate there four times out of five days! I've never had a bad meal there and the staff is always friendly. You won't regret making this a stop during your stay!

We usually eat at least one meal at McFarlain's each time we visit Branson. The food is always good, and the service is always good. The dining room has a nice atmosphere.

I'm rating this a 5/5 as compared to similar restaurants, not - of course - as compared to all restaurants. That said, OMG, the Chicken Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes, gravy, and corn was to die for. Yeah, might have clogged my arteries a bit, but it was soooo good! I was with five others and they all enjoyed their... More

My family went there during our vacation and we sat for 10 minutes before anyone even took our drink order. We had an hour before time for a show and barely made it on time. The food took awhile and was just okay tasting. Wait staff was not overly nice.

My family and I went for breakfast. Didn't have to wait to be seated, but had to wait over 30 minutes for our meal. Food was average. I liked the atmosphere.

We want to apologize that you had to wait for breakfast so long, as this does not meet the high standards that we set for our kitchen staff. Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts. Your feedback is very important to us. More

Our trips to Branson wouldn't be considered a successful vacation without a breakfast at McFarlain's on our last morning. Really good food and a very nice staff.

We've been there twice during this visit. Once for breakfast and once for dinner. Both were very good. Price was in the medium range. Fast seating, waited only about 5 minutes. This is a family style dinning. The parking lot is quite slanted ( on a hill)and the restaurant is located at the bottom of the hill. They do have... More
