Fabulous food!!! Great waitress!!!

We found this by googling good place to eat in Osage Beach. They aren't kidding!! Food was great, and the waitress was hilarious. Super fast service, but you didn't feel rushed. It is a diner, not some fancy smanchy place, buy really, you're at the Lake of the Ozarks. Go soak up some local... read more

I can't recommend this place enough for anyone looking for a home cooked breakfast. The all you can breakfast is a great value for what you get. The staff are very friendly and I loved the home town feel of this place.

We had breakfast there last weekend. The Omelet was very good. Not the best I ever had, but I would order it again. The english muffin......was a disaster. If the waitress had checked back with us, I would have sent it back for regular toast. 1) the correct way to open an English Muffin, is piercing it with a fork... More

Small town diner breakfast place. We both had the all-you-can eat breakfast, not a buffet, but you order pre-selected items off their menu. Very good even though bacon wasn't an item, but be too costly. French toast was one of my favorites. I have seen long lines out the door so plan your time accordingly. Our waitstaff was excellent!

Wife and I went for breakfast based on the reviews on TA. Others had complained about a smoke smell. We couldn't smell anything and there were smokers having breakfast at the same time. Breakfast was great. I did the modified all you can eat option and the biscuits and gravy, omelette and pancakes were all great. The coffee was typical... More

This place has an "all you can eat" option, but unlike most places with a food bar that you just help yourself, this place has a menu that you can order off of and they bring it after you order it. Then you can order seconds and they bring those. I guess they are trying to minimize waste and hope... More

Our family enjoyed the all-you-can-eat breakfast. The pancakes, sausages, and omelettes were excellent. Only complaint is that we waited 25 or 35 minutes to be seated, then again as long for our food. Not sure why they don't consider a buffet instead of having the servers bring additional plates.

The all you can eat breakfast is wonderful! Their biscuits and gravy are to die for, the pancakes were great, everything was wonderful. Will definitely be coming back.
