Family Resturaunt/Cafe Style food

I love it because I like how they prepare food with seasoning and American Down home style cooking. One of my favorite places. Always full.

A simple down to earth setting awaits you at the Ozark Cafe. You will always find home cooked food on their menu awaiting you for lunch or dinner: fried chicken, country ham, brown beans, fried catfish, pork chops, etc. In the early mornings you will find the local farmers or retirees having their coffee, homemade cinnamon rolls or biscuits and...

A great family restaurant! Simple, happy atmosphere with great service! Very clean! Great variety including breakfast all day, burgers, fish, subs, clubs, roast, chicken, pizza and so on! Homemade desserts that are worth saving room for! Somewhat inconvenient location, but the restaurant is worth the trip!

Ozark Café is the "go-to" place in the West Plains area for good, old-fashioned comfort food. Whether it's fried catfish, homemade pie, or the famous loaded biscuits and gravy, this mom & pop restaurant does not disappoint.

Have only eaten dinner there a couple of times but everything we have ever ordered has been very good. Reminds you of old time cafes with moms cooking. staff is always very friendly and easy on the eyes as well. Have had breakfast several times and has always been very very good, I promise you will not leave hungry.

We've been for breakfast & dinner, both are good. Breakfast is great. We like the skillets. Homemade cinnamon rolls & homemade pies look really good.

You have to go on a Thursday night and have their fried chicken. Soooo good, as are their sides and those dinner rolls... to die for.

We saw something here that we seldom see. The daily specials were printed on one side of a sheet of paper and laid in the middle of the regular menu. There were several specials (good selection of seafood, pork, beef and chicken...all with a choice of two side dishes), and all were the same price. Pick anything and pay $6.49.... More

We finally tried the pizza here, it's very good, the Best for miles around, if your in town, stop here, you will not leave here hungry. I give the pizza 5 star's out of 5. Also, try their cat fish, it's delicious. You can also get food to go, don't forget some pie, if you have room.

The Ozark Cafe has been around in one form or another for decades. Today's version holds true to the Ozark Cafe tradition of good solid home cooking at decent prices with friendly and prompt service. You won't find gourmet cuisine here, but everything is very good. They have daily specials, like meat loaf, fried chicken and fried catfish. The fish... More
