Wow I thought the breakfast was terrible. Somewhat dirty and food was awful. I would not recommend for breakfast at all.

We were told this was the best breakfast around. They were right! We were pleased in every way and ended our trip to the Lake for business and pleasure in a great way! The staff were great and the prices very accommodating! The food was delicious with outstanding extras. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! Thank you!

It was good food don't get me wrong but I have heard soooo much about how awesome this place is when I got there and ordered I thought... I can get this at any mom and pop place. Nothing special. I did like the 'buffet - made to order' thing. That was different!

The only place I have been where the breakfast buffet is cooked to order. Get the all you can eat breakfast buffet and order items off the menu as you want them. French toast, eggs, potatoes, all made to order. Only regret was that bacon was not part of the buffet and that they don't have waffles on the menu.... More

Food is always good and service is awesome as well worth the long wait in line. I eat here on every trip to the Ozarks.

Three of us had the all-you-can eat breakfast special. Very good home cooking. Everything was hot and delicious. One of our group had the chicken fried steak and thought it was "one of the best" (but not the absolute best) he'd had. Service was excellent. About a 30 minute wait on July 4th weekend. Would recommend to people visiting the... More

We stopped in at Kay's before we hit the highway home on a Sunday morning . We were told the wait for about 30 min. which was no big deal. Once we were seated our fabulous waitress took great care of us. We all got the 8.99 ALL YOU CAN EAT menu. Kids price was $6.75 for the same menu... More

Not sure what happened to the food quality. This used to be my favorite breakfast at the lake. Done the bypass went in I have been disappointed after every visit. Not sure if they cut ingredient quality to make up for fewer customers or if Kay retired but the quality and Value is nothing compared to the past twenty years.... More
