Had dinner here with my husband during a quick "Weekend Get-a-Way", and it was absolutely wonderful! I made reservations in advance. We were promptly seated, and not long after, we were greeted by out waiter. We received excellent service throughout the meal, as well as delicious appetizers, main courses, and desserts. We will definitely be returning! If you are looking... More

Should not be missed for lunch or dinner. The food is always fresh, mostly made from the animals, vegetables, herbs and milk that are raised right there at the College of the Ozarks by the students. Very big variety on the menu. Special dietary needs are accommodated easily. Desserts and ice cream are worth the calories. The students are all... More

We ate Lunch and Dinner in the restaurant. We were impressed with the quality of the food and the price was perfect for quality. We were extremely happy with the service. Its a wonder thing the college is doing to allow the students to work off their tuition in this way as well. Thumbs up all the way. Don't forget... More

Loved that the food came fresh from the on site gardens. You could taste the freashness. Definitely a must do. Make sure to make reservations, but the wait is well worth it!

If you don't have time for full meal, at least stop in to try out their homemade ice cream at Nettie Marie's. Lot's of unique tasty choices at reasonable prices.
