Possibly the creamiest, best tasting ice cream we've ever had. Be sure to try the home made waffle cones too. Fresh from the college's dairy and made by students.

We got a tip while eating on Main Street in Branson....a student run restaurant and lodge at nearby College of the Ozarks. It was easy to find. What a neat place with a gift shop, lodge, home made ice cream shop, dessert stop and full restaurant. All run by well trained students...who major in culinary science, agriculture, nursing and education.... More

We liked the idea of enjoying a meal prepared and served by students working their way through college. We were not prepared for our experience. We have enjoyed the finest that Paris, New York, Chicago, New Orleans, Seattle, San Francisco, Denver, San Diego, and San Antonio have to offer. The dining experience we enjoyed at the Keeter Center, College of... More

Anything you choose will be excellent. From homemade apple butter and rolls to soups to beef, chicken, ham - everything I tried was excellent - and save room for dessert - but you'll need to share because you will be stuffed.

The food was great, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was fantastic. The party of 5 that I was with couldn't get enough on the first day so we returned for the evening meal the next day. All the food was fresh and very tasty. Service was the greatest, the servers were polite and thoughtful. Whatever we asked for... More

It was Just by accident that we heard about a restaurant run by college students. It was so much more than that. I can't describe how impressive the entire setting was. You will never forget your visit. That's a promise.

Great food, beautiful place, great service. I can't say enough about this great place. Wonderful to see young people who know how to work and have great values in such a wonderful place of learning. The students who go to school here, work their way through school. This place is a treasure.

The food was excellent as was the service. It was good to know that a lot of the food was grown and or raised there local.

We had reservations and waited 15 minutes past our time with empty tables waiting. I ordered the Basil tomato soup which was extraordinary. My date had the hamsteak which was over salted which made it difficult to eat altho tender. I made the mistake of ordering the top sirloin steak which was as tough as shoe leather. The raspberry ice... More

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary at a Sunday brunch in the area so we made reservations here. We had such a hard time finding our way around Big Cedar's website so we passed on that brunch (do they even have it anymore?). College of the Ozarks' website was so much simpler to use. Plus, I'm sure the price was... More
