Our entire family had a great meal. Their fried chicken was fabulous and I had a chicken fried steak breakfast meal that was a heart attack on a plate but was just delicious! I would do it again at the risk of heart disease!

This place is so run down and not enough staff to run it properly. We had to wait for about 20 minutes before being seated for 9 people but the restaurant was almost empty. They bragged about their sea food buffet with crab and lobster...and the waitress went on about how thier price was $19.99 while others went by lbs. Well that was a lie. If the chicken attracts you...don't go.More

We got there around 5 on a Saturday and should have known not to go in when there weren’t many cars in the parking lot. The prices were outrageous!! $100/piece for all you can eat crab legs and lobster!! $25 for one cluster of crab...legs! The buffet was terrible!! The fish tasted like literally grease.my daughter only ate her canned peaches and oranges from the buffet. The hostess asked when I was due, I mean I’m some overweight but I sure don’t look pregnant!! RUDE!!More

This place looks like an Indian casino hooked to a gas station. We walked in looked around at the very sad breakfast buffet and walked out. We ended up at Starving Marvin and it was very good. Oh…at 8am they had a guy with a...89$ karaoke machine singing. Several other couples did the same thing.More

We were able to get seated right away for Breakfast. The server was friendly and attentive, however, the buffet tasted like something from a school cafeteria in 1985. Eggs were runny, sausage didn’t taste like sausage, the had browns were burnt tater tots. The biscuit...& gravy was ok, we will not go backMore

Overcooked chicken and sides were not fresh at all. This is low class fast food place charging 4* dining pricing. Stay away

Group of nine went for lunch. The restaurant was not busy, very few patrons, yet we were cramed into a table for six. No elbow room, no room for all the dinner plates, cups etc The big chicken, the staff, the tables and chairs, the...cook, are all tired; perhaps underpaid and under motivated, but what do I know about that? First chicken livers came out too over done to chew. The second batch came out bloody. Please! Smallest chicken fried steak I have ever seen. The mashed potatoes taste instant. The furniture is old, tired and the chairs have metal seats that are sharp. One in our group was cut on the leg by the sharp edge of the chair. The floors appear dirty. I must say that our server was pleasant and accomodating, Much appreciated, the only plus of the experience There are hundreds of dining options in Branson, no need to take your chances here.More

We had our first vacation lunch here. Cooking from scratch - so hard to find anymore with all the heat up frozen food places that call themselves restaurants! I had the chicken fried chicken - delicious, crispy, juicy and very well seasoned. Hubby had the...fried chicken - their signature dish - it was good and tasty, juicy, fresh and crispy where it should be. We’ll be back for their breakfast buffet - buy one, get one half off.More

We chose this restaurant for the bogo half price breakfast buffet offering, but when we arrived the breakfast buffet was dismal (no pancakes, no waffles, only French toast sticks and some other breakfast basics). It was a glorified hotel continental breakfast. So, we ordered off...the menu. Pros: good service (even when busy), yummy pancakes (very very yummy) Cons: small portions for the price, buffet not what we expected. We left feeling very average about the experience at this restaurant. Given there are so many breakfast options on Branson, I’d go somewhere else.More

Service was slow due to short on staff as all other places since COVID has hit. Food had great to taste but was warm not hot. Staff was friendly and quick to apologize for the warm food. If they get fully staffed it could be...a great place to eat.More

We went in at 4 pm on a Thursday. There was no other customers. We asked the price of the buffet and was told it was $14.99 - off the menu, 2 pieces of chicken w/fried okra was $12.99. We decided to do the buffet....After we’d served ourselves and had already eaten 2 pieces of chicken, a rib, and the sides, we were told that the register had already changed to dinner prices and that our cost was $19.99 a piece. It ended up costing us just under $50!!! Bathrooms smelled of STRONG urine! Never again! Apparently asking prices before you buy doesn’t count. 😠More

Very cool statue out front caught my kids eye! Wanted to stop for some chicken tenders. We went inside and waiting to be seated. Waitress was very mediocre. Not friendly and seemed bothered when we asked questions. Looked at Buffett and food looked questionable. We...ordered food and all the chicken was soggy and breading fell off. Extremely overpriced. Wouldn’t recommend. Skip this on your vacation.More

Food on buffet was old and sub-par. If my kid won't eat the Mac n cheese, you know it is bad. We opted to leave after a few bites rather than chance getting sick, and asked for the bill. The waitress knew there was a...problem and brought out an older lady who said she was the manager. She asked what the problem was, and I just said the kids didn't like it, can you bring my bill. She responded, it's not McDonald's? My kids regularly eat out and are not shy about trying different foods. Her rudeness escalated this from a simple no thank you to a negative review.More

We stopped here to eat before our show in downtown Branson. We were attracted by the big chicken that sits out front. We figured that if it was a chicken place then they would do a good job with all kinds of chicken dishes.The service...was pretty quick on a Sunday afternoon. But let me tell you, keep driving. I ordered off of the menu because I did not trust the Buffet. I ordered grilled chicken breast with rice and green beans. My husband ordered a cheeseburger with fries. My thin chicken breasts were seasoned well but they were very dry. My rice was very dry, I had to pour the juice from my green beans over the rice to the moisten in it. My husband says his burger was actually OK. Our server came and took our drink and food order at the same time. The tap water tastes real funny. I got a bottle of smart water from the cooler. Someone else brought out our food. We had to go up to the cashier to get checked out. Then our server appeared asking who was our server. LOL. Overall, I do not recommend this place unless you are in dire straits. Good luck if you decide to try it.More
