We only tried Devil's Pool Restaurant for breakfast (usually ate dinner downstairs in Buzzard's Bar (another review)). They push their buffet which is a standard hotel breakfast buffet with an omelet station. We ordered from the menu which is somewhat limited in selections. Food is OK, although nothing to write reviews about. Service is attentive.

We did Thanksgiving dinner here rather than cook. The food was delicious. Everything was hot and ready to eat. Service was great and we had a great view of the mountains. Highly recommend.

We've visited Big Cedar several times over the last 20 years to eat. Mostly, at the Buzzard Bar. Wanting to treat our family to a special dinner to end our week in Branson, we were excited to try Devil's Pool Restaurant. What a disappointment. With a 7:15 reservation on a Friday night, we didn't get out of there until 9:30... More

Ate the Breakfast buffet here on a Saturday morning. We didn't get there until about 9:30 and it was packed with a 40 min wait. Kind of chilly outside but we decided to eat on the patio with immediate seating. It would have been a much better experience inside with the fire going but the food was excellent. The waitress...

On the grounds of Big Cedar worth every penny. Just about any and everything you would want for breakfast and just like the resort high in quality. Terrific way to start the day and I heard other meals just as good.

The view, the food, the service.....it's ALL GOOD! Chili and cornbread on my last visit - I dream about it! This is a must when staying on property or if just passing through!

We ate the buffet breakfast and enjoyed the omelet made to order. Everything was displayed elegantly and proper temperatures were maintained. The food was good and we enjoyed a leisurely morning in a lovely setting. What was memorable though was the service. Our waitress was thoughtful and enjoyable much beyond the ordinary. Devil's Pool was our best experience of all... More

We always make a stop at Devil's Pool for brunch on Sunday on our way out of town after a stay in Branson, and this past weekend was so disappointing.. Going to skip it next time for the price..
