The food is delicious! It is mostly grown and produced on site. The beef we had was very tender! The students come from around the world to go to school there. It is very interesting visiting with them. The scenery is spectacular while you eat! Excellent! I will go back!

I liked the story of Hard-Work-U and the students who grow, harvest, prepare and serve such delightful fare.

Much of the food is grown by the students of the college right on campus and they will be your waiters. I am not a great meatloaf fan but I had the best ever. They recommend reservations but...

My husband & I have been here several times. From the very beginning to the end, we were treated so well. Our waiter was so polite & explained everything so well. He was so courteous to us. The food was wonderful as always. The 2 different piano players were just an added bonus. The view was spectacular, overlooking the campus.... More

At first we were a little cautious because it's culinary students, but that was quickly put to rest as soon as we sat down. Everything from the greeting, until the end of the meal was absolutely amazing. We were treated like it was a 5 star steak house that we would have to pay an arm and leg for. The... More

The restaurant is an excellent venue for a wonderful meal. The students are the most accommodating servers you will ever find in any restaurant in the COUNTRY.

Food was wonderful. Waiters were great, and the corn bread served hot with butter....Good vegetables, Menus was well presented and the prices moderate. I can't wait until we go again to Branson, and this will be my first stop to eat.
