We were looking for a different place for lunch and found this via Trip Advisor. Pulling in, the parking lot was packed - but there was still plenty of room to sit. My Mom and I both had Saturday specials (chicken quesadillas and grilled salmon) and they were both great. Would love to go back and try breakfast.

We found the Ozark Cafe on Tripadvisor and what a find! This had to be one of the best dinners we had on our trip. The food tasted like it was home cooked and the portions were generous. We both had the pork chop dinner and said we it was the best pork chop we had ever had!! Wish we... More

They know how to cook at the Ozark Cafe. Huge portions and true home style cooking. This restaurant is in our top three favorite anywhere. Delicious! Don't miss it.

The food was very good. Service was fast and friendly. We were there on a Saturday morning it was crowded but we were taken care of very quickly. Prices are very reasonable. Next time we're in town, we'll try lunch!

Small town restaurants keep early hours and Ozark Cafe is no exception, but it is one of a kind in the sense that it's homestyle food is the best on Earth and certainly in Howell County outside of your granny's kitchen. I don't think a single menu item is more than $8 or $9 dollars and you get enough food... More

If it wasn't for trip adviser I might have passed this place by, but if you do you will be sorry! The catfish was probably the best I've ever had. The portions were plenty and the service was fast. Everyone left stuffed! It's a must stop for home style food at a great price.You won't be disappointed.

love this place..have known the owners for many years! The food is typical café, with a few house specialties thrown in (fried catfish, chicken fried steak, cowboy chicken), done right, priced for value and portioned for a big man! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, and breakfast is served all day! Easy to find...follow the crowd.

This place is our favorite, we never leave here hungry or saying why did I have that, most of the time we say, I can't believe that I ate all that 😊
