Nice little stop after hiking. We were served quickly which was a plus. We got burgers and chicken fried chicken. Chicken fried chicken was ok… it was a little thicker than he would have liked. Our big eater got the pounder with an egg on...top ….and he ate the whole thing!! The cobbler was warm with ice cream on top. Overall would eat there again.More

Was going from Russellville, AR north. Was a good place to stop, relax, have some food. Should have gotten into the car and taken off, think every law enforcement officer was at the table next to me. The ambiance was much better than the food,...had a breakfast. Will stop again when close, much better than a Branson tourist trapMore

In the middle of Jasper, the Ozark Cafe has good food and excellent service. In Oct., the wait was only about 15 minutes. Highly recommend

We stopped here for dinner because it was recommended by a person we had met on our road trip. It was established in the early 1900s and has dozens and dozens of photos on the walls. It is really old and quirky. We had Ma’s...fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy and pinto beans. We shared it and glad we did. The beans were delicious with bacon flavor, the chicken crisp. The potatoes could have been hotter but it was fine. It even came with a trip to the salad bar. We saw lots of customers ordering milkshakes. They must be popular. Our male server was very nice and accommodating.More

What a great little place to take a motorcycle ride to on a beautiful day in October! Our food was fantastic and even though the restaurant was packed with bikers and locals, the staff was friendly and accommodating! They had cute little local T-shirts to...look at as well as the historical building while you are waiting.More

Great service! Ordered Mama’s chicken and mashed potatoes. Food came out lukewarm or best. Had a hard time cutting chicken the knife provided. Waitress was sweet and a hard worker.

We stopped in for breakfast on the last day of our trip in the area because of all the great reviews and this place did not disappoint. Very much an old school diner feel with some of the best breakfast I’d had in a while....Would recommend anyone traveling through the area to stop by for a meal.More

We were out for a Roadtrip and stopped here for lunch. Haley Moley, we were not disappointed with the food are service. The food is so good and the portions are huge. Hubby and I ordered the Mushroom and Swiss Burger. We should have ordered...one and split it. The burger comes wit potato chips, but I upgraded to the homemade fries. The fries were just like I cut and fix at home. Excellent fries. Big Bro ordered the Ozark Club and he said it was excellent. We split an Onion Petal that as so good. And our server brought us extra Ranch Dressing. The ice tea was so good. If you are in Jasper Arkansas, you really need to stop in for some great food. I don’t think you will be disappointed.More

We have always eaten there when going through Jasper because of the great food. The last two times we went in, the dining room smelled with a hint of sewage. It just needs a good cleaning. I watched a young man just smear around on...a table that he was cleaning. A quality restaurant will clean everything including he seats, catchup bottles etc. Again, we loved this place with great food. It really breaks my heart that it is not up to standard cleaning levels. Just a side note: Offer disposable gloves at any buffett or self serve, after COVID, that is now a standard practice!More

I chose the Mushroom Swiss chicken breast plate with mashed potatoes and it was just what I hoped for. It was a great tasting entree. Next trip, I’ll most likely try the sandwich version of the same. The service was spot on and friendly.

Located in the Ozark mountains, we ride through the national forest to reach this gem. This beautiful ride takes you through the winding roads of the national forest and along cliffs to fun switch-backs. The views throughout the ride are stunning during every season, but...the fall foliage is magnificent! The cafe is old, quaint, and busy! The food portions are large and so good! Whether riding motorcycles or driving a car, this is a must-stop as you pass through Jasper. We ride with a motorcycle group to the cafe occasionally, and the cafe's food is so good!More

The short handed staff was really hustling, but managed to maintain a playful, sometimes teasing thing going that kept the place lit by smiles and laughter. Very impressive way of dealing with the pace! I had the chicken teriyaki sandwich and really enjoyed it. Danielle...even gave me great suggestions on which roads to rideMore
