The Sunday brunch leaves no taste out. There is something for everyone and it is in a bite-size leaving room for plenty of bites. If in the Branson area this is a must. Reservations recommended. Albeit a bit pricey and beverages not included it is a destination in and of itself. There is a sense of patriotism/pride upon entering the... More

Fabulous food, all grown or raised on the college campus. The service could not have been better. A must visit.

Everything about this meal was excellent: the food, the presentation, the service, and the atmosphere. We particularly liked the singing of the doxology, and the pianist, special touches to an already superb dining experience.

Beautiful place- wonderful attentive staff. Plan to buy apple butter to take home- it was incredible. The pear honey salad dressing is another do no miss!

The food was so good. I couldn't find any negatives about this place. I celebrated my birthday in style! To work off sme calories, try walking this beautiful campus. The waiter is from Haiti. The concept of working for the education is honorable. The kids enjoyed the ice cream. Everything is made on site. I even got a special birthday... More

The atmosphere, food, and service were impeccable. In addition, the knowledge that this is completely student run in the way that they fund their college expense is fabulous. Wonderful, friendly kids who are not afraid to work and have fun at the same time.

Point Lookout MO is part of the Branson area, just 2 miles south on Hwy 65. The Keeter Center is the major hub of this lovely campus. We stopped into tour the campus as we had heard good things about it and Wall Street Journal refers to it as Hard Work U. They've had international speakers and all students work... More

This was an absolutely great experience that we will repeat. The food on the Sunday brunch was sensational and the service was second to none. We also thoroughly enjoyed the live musical entertainment which provided an atmosphere of class. I have already shared our experience with several friends and will look forward to getting to return in the future.

This restaurant location is listed on Tripadvisor under "Point Lookout, MO", not the city of Branson, so it didn't come up under my search for higest rated Branson restaurants. So glad a local recommended this or we would have missed it! Friendly service, fresh food and free ice-cream cones for the kids. Pretty view. Will definitely come here again and... More

If you spend anytime in Branson, you have to visit this restaurant @ The Hard Work U!! (The College of the Ozarks). You will be greeted by young & happy students that will serve you and pamper you like you probably have not been in ages. They all have a most friendly & pleasant personality, and the food is always... More
