Nice atmosphere

The setting is nice. Nice views of the water. The place is decorated to feel like an old hunting/fishing lodge. Our food was very good but not great. Staff were friendly but we had several mistakes on our order which were promptly corrected. It was a warm day and it seemed like the AC was... read more

We got into the restaurant before the dinner rush. The decor of the place is better than the food. We sat by a door to the kitchen and it smelled like trash. The food was only ok. We tried some of their signature dishes and we were not overwhelmed. We ordered an appetizer, a salad and a main dish, all... More

Right on the lake with a great view & easy parking. Watched the fog roll in as the zip line riders road over the lake. The pan fried corn bread was very good with a little spice to it. I had a very good Maple Salmon dinner. The others in my party had catfish , fish & chips , All... More

Do not know if it is really the best place to eat in Branson, but it is pretty darn good! Located on the Branson Landing on the old downtown section in a very rustic setting with a nice view of the lake. Plenty of parking. Extensive seafood menu and full bar. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Took our grandkids... More

The views from the large windows were beautiful - we watched the fog come and go several times through a storm wave. The food was just ok. We had the fried catfish and didn't care for the breading and bland flavor. Loved the complimentary corn bread that contained mild chiles. Maybe a different menu choice would have been better and...

Very clean. Nice waiters and waitresses. Great food. Perfect views of the Lake. Go early or you will have to wait we went for dinner and the wait was 45 mins to an hour so we went back for lunch the next day it was delicious.

It was a fun experience on the water. Mist was rising off the water and it had a really cool feel to it. Had to wait a half hour for a table even though there were at least twenty empty tables within sight of the front door. Food was fast to arrive. walleye was marginal. Catfish was great. Cornbread was... More
