We were very impressed with this restaurant at the College of the Ozarks. The dining room was immaculate. The college grows food used in the restaurant and you can tell. The tomato on my sandwich was a garden ripe tomato. The staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We will definitely be back on future visits to Branson.

This was my second dining experience at Dobyns Dining Room. Both times were very good. The staff is attentive, dining hall is open and relaxing. The food, some which was grown on the campus, was prepared and served tastefully. The chefs and dinner staff are college students who seem to thoroughly enjoy what they are doing. Some dishes can be... More

I have been reluctant to try this due to the complaint that it was so expensive. I didnt think it was expensive for what you get. We went at lunch and I got a sandwhich with homemade chips for around $9. Considering it's a beautiful restuarant, amazing staff, all food is grown there, even the flour for the fresh biscuits...

We stopped here on the first day of our Branson vacation for Sunday Brunch. We were very glad we did. We didn't arrive in Branson time to make a reservation (at least 24 hours in advance), so we arrived and were put on the wait list. We waited about an hour, but we didn't mind the wait as we were...

The food at the Keeter Center at College of the Ozarks is absolutely amazing. Their farm to table concept arrives with homemade rolls made from wheat ground onsite served with butter churned from cows the students milk every day. We concluded our meal with delectable butter cake made from their own wheat and butter. We especially enjoyed the creamiest ice... More

The food here is excellent also. There is a wonderful selection on the menu. The students do an excellent job managing, serving, cooking and every aspect of the Center. I believe this is a must while in Branson.

We recently went to the Branson area, staying here at the Keeter Center and eating both a dinner and the brunch here. I want to thank the Restaurant Manager, Kathryn Williams, and the assistant manager, Emily Jenkerson. Both of these ladies do a wonderful job encouraging and teaching the restaurant staff so they can do their best. The wait staff,... More

One of the things that makes this dining experience unique is that much of the food is grown on campus, and the entire process is run by students. Besides enjoying delicious omelets, locally-raised pork, and fresh fruits and veggies, we had a great discussion with our waiter/student and learned a lot about the college. The dessert table was gorgeous -... More

This was our third visit to Dobyn's Dining Room at College of the Ozarks. We keep returning for the delicious, reasonably priced food that is grown/raised right on campus. The well-trained, pleasant college students who serve in all aspects of the restaurant are also a delight. From the moment you step into the immaculate and beautiful lobby, you are treated... More
