Owner description: College of the Ozarks, known as "Hard Work U," is more than a college. It's a destination with tons of family-friendly activities, including two museums, an old-fashioned grist mill, fruitcake and jelly kitchen, stained glass studio, and exquisite 4-star dining at Dobyns Dining Room in The Keeter Center. It's a great way to spend a day while you are in the Branson area. The only thing that requires admission is the Ralph Foster Museum ($6 Adults, $5 Seniors, and Free to all 18 and under). Dobyns Dining Room offers a farm to table experience without breaking the bank. Come learn why this unique college is nationally known.

“College Road Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Looking at colleges with our daughter. OMGosh this is an amazing campus! Beautiful hotel, restaurant (did not get the chance to eat) and grounds. They even have a museum on site, which we did go through. Coolest item was the car from The Beverly Hillbillies.

“Best meal in Branson!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We ate lunch at the Keeter Center one day, expecting a good meal prepared by college students. We were astonished at the quality of the food, the atmosphere, and the service. I ordered the chicken fried chicken which was cooked to perfection. My husband had the roast beef and raved about the great flavor. We loved that meal so much we made reservations for the next night. That night we sat on the back deck enjoying the view of the mountains as well as the another delicious meal. Those eating inside were treated to one of the students playing piano. If you are looking for a lovely evening with mouthwatering food, this is the place to go. Make reservations online at the College of the Ozarks website.

“C of O Farmers Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

On Friday mornings College of the Ozarks hosts a farmers market. It starts at 7am and don't be late. Today we bought apple and cheese brats. We also got fresh corn and tomatoes. If you go you must pick up some cinnamon swirl bread. All theses products are produced by the students at the college. Needless to say we had a great dinner tonight.
