Small house next to the registration area, this is a great place for muffins and coffee or maybe a quick sandwich, but not really a destination for a meal. Small patio out back with view of cove but limited seating inside. Good service.

We had two lunches and were extremely pleased with both. The staff is so friendly and even though it is sometimes very crowded they always take time to make sure your order is just the way you want it.

We often have lunch here during our week stay at The Wilderness Club at Big Cedar. We love sitting outdoors and the beautiful scenery, cabins, colors and smells. They offer a nice but limited breakfast, nice selection of teas, fresh baked goods and the best sandwiches that are changed with the season.

Food was OK but, like any luxury lodge dining, way overpriced. But it's your only choice unless you want to drive into Branson (which I highly recommend).

The restaurant only seats about 15 inside...cute and cozy. I ordered the Rueben upon recommendation of the server. It was good, but lukewarm. My husband ordered a bbq sandwich, but the portion was small. He left hungry.

If you like Penera Bread then you will love this place because its a copy of them. Easy to get in and out but a little high on the prices.

We ate here early one morning enjoying a vegetable quiche, that we shared, along with a gourmet coffee. The coffee was hot just like it should be! And the quiche was delicious and way to much for one person. One of the girls working was nice enough to bring everything to our table just outside the coffee house. It has... More

They have an excellent wait staff and the food is okay too. The ambience is for a country experience. Pricey drinks though for coffee and fruit shakes that weren't so tasty.
