“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

We had read about the College of the Ozarks and decided to your the campus on our last day in the area. We began with lunch in the dining room. Amazing! It is a beautiful dining room with very delicious menu items. The service is very friendly. We were impressed with our visit! The campus is beautiful and the students and staff are very friendly and accommodating. We will be sure to visit again!

“Keeter Center Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

We dined with four of our friends in the Dobyns Dining room at College of the Ozarks in Hollister, MO Wednesday April 9, 2014 and all had a wonderful experience. This is not our first visit and we have never been disappointed. Everyone enjoyed their food and the scenery there is country wonderful. First-timers be sure to read about the College of the Ozarks while you wait for your meal to get an appreciation for what the college does.

One caveat-this is not a 'fast food' restaurant. It is more akin to European dining in that the pace is very deliberate but the service is generally excellent.

“Nice break from Branson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Simply beautiful facility. Nice drive if you swing down and go over the lake and past the dam. Loved the ham steak, crostini, mac and cheese, smoked chicken salad. Chairs were uncomfortable, and our waiter was definetly "in training" - - but I guess the service part is why the prices are so reasonable. We were intrigued by the College, which we knew little about. Purchased their apple butter, grits, and biscuit mix in gift shop. If you are going to do a nice night out, this is a great option.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

We had a group of seven here for dinner tonight and had a great meal. In case you don't know this restaurant is run by they student at the College of the Ozarks and they do a great job. Much of the food is produced right on the college campus and all the staff are students. It is great training for them and all the food was very good.

You have to get the ten layer chocolate cake for dessert.
