Everything about the Keeter Center is amazing. The location, the atmosphere, the service, and the food. Everything I have ordered at Keeter center is delicious and the Sunday brunch is amazing. The students are so courteous and polite. We eat on the "porch" when weather allows and the view is beautiful. Plus, they have a cute little gift shop that... More

The Dobyns Dining Room sets the standard for a wonderful dining experience, and was our favorite place in the entire Branson area. We had a family reunion in Branson, and decided to check it out one day with just one other member of our group. We were so smitten, we returned the next day with all 8 members of our... More

This was a very elaborate Sunday buffet for just less than $25/person--including non alcoholic beverages. There were 2 tables of breakfast items, an incredible salad bar where the fruit must have been grown in their greenhouses because it was exceptional, especially for this time of year. They make their own summer sausage and one of the cheeses. Entrees included one... More

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.
