Imagine this: Going into a beautiful wooden cabin escorted by friendly staff to an enormous wooden table, seeing around you eyes widened in wonder at both main courses and many assortments of homemade ice-cream, being served homemade biscuits and rolls with fresh apple butter, while you order from an array of generously portioned meals, finishing your meal being handed an...

Lovely restaurant! Great service!! Students work there to pay off their tuition. The food was delicious. I ordered the Barbecue macaroni with pulled pork. It was great! The surrounding area is beautiful! We were a family of 14 and we were seated easily. Friendly staff, beautiful restaurant. Great for a dinner for 2 or large family.

What an excellent place to eat. We made a reservation for 5 at lunch. So good! The 50/50 fried cheeseburger was tasty. We ordered the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer and it was my favorite but there wasn't enough for all of us. Probably enough for one, maybe 2. Definitely one of the best eating experiences in Branson. The... More

This has to be one of the best meals we have ever had traveling. My partner and I had the best lunch here. We started with the fried green tomatoes and house chips. Wow. Then he had the Ruben and I had the chicken salad. Wow again. Then for desert, root beer float and the strawberry Madeline wow wow wow.... More

Great service. Food was good. Salads were fresh and the dressing was great. Rolls and biscuits were a big hit as were the house chips. Pot roast was excellent. I would pass on the salmon next time. If back in the area, would definitely visit again.

We LOOOOOVE their desserts and EXCELLENT customer service!!! Be sure to make a reservation and inform them if you have a special event you're celebrating. We have dined here over 15 times & we've only been disappointed once in the dinner. We will go again next time we're there because we know last time must have just been an 'off... More

Ate here with my family on vacation. The whole experience was fantastic!! The venue itself is something to see. The food was great!! All six of us were thoroughly impressed with our meals. Finished up with some of the best deserts I've ever had. Definitely a must stop if visiting Branson!!

There aren't words to describe the overall experience. Superior service, superior food,....simply superior!!! Their mission statement is awesome, to say the least. I served a tour in Iraq during OIF 1 - 2003-2004. My patriotism and allegiance to this country, as well as a very strong Christian belief, are maybe a little stronger than some but I can't help it.... More
