As a cinnamon roll conneisuer, my daughter gave Grandma Ruth's cinnamon rolls a thumbs up! These were the yummiest we've ever had. Impressed by the friendly staff who went out of their way to provide helpful tips to a tourist like me. It was a surprise to find so many flavors (cinnamon, toffee, caramel, etc). Both the cinnamon and caramel... More

I visited Grandma Ruth's last Saturday, and am so glad I did!!! A local singer/musician was there with his collection of memorabilia about Roy Rogers, and several other old time cowboys!!! He also sang several songs (fantastic singer and musician!!!) and interacted with the customers. Then, the wonderful smell got overwhelming and I got a cinnamon roll! Absolutely delicious, the...

We dropped by on a Friday morning, the four of us enjoyed the toffee roll, and before we were finished, Rod brought us four of their regular rolls to go! We enjoyed the vocalist, Branson's premiere Yodeler, John Fullerton. His Roy Rogers-Dale Evans memorabilia collection filled the entire corner of the room, it was a great trip down memory trail....

Decided to get a roll to go so we could have an after hike snack. We tried a cinnamon roll doused in ooey gooey toffee. Omg, my mouth was so happy! We devoured the roll and ended up scooping the toffee out of the bottom of the container. So good. They also gave my daughter a cookie while making our... More

These were the best cinnamon rolls we have ever had. The ratio of frosting to roll is perfect. We like Cinnabon rolls, but a bit more frosting than we want. Grandma Ruth greets you from the kitchen when you walk in. She even gave the kids free sugar cookies which they said were equally as good as the cinnamon rolls.... More

Not as good as cinnabon but close! These are homemade and a real treat if you love fresh out of the oven cinnamon rolls.

A few other reviewers rated these above Cinnabon's and some rated them below. We have to agree with those who found Cinnabon's superior. These are larger, much heavier and as warned by one reviewer, do not attempt to take one with you for later. We found the results to be exactly as described - hard as a rock. If the... More

Can't afford to eat their rolls regularly because of the calories. They are so good. Being a bit of a cinnamon roll expert, I've only seen a couple comparable. Always seem to be warm out of the oven. Nice people. Can eat in or carry out.

Cinnamon roll here is big, soft, and full of yummy, goopy cinnamon stuff! We've been there a few times - they moved into a new place that's a bit larger and more spread out. But grandma Ruth was still there today!

Thank Dad-To-Four

Our rolls are baked fresh every all during our hours of operation. Then basted in warm melted butter and ever so lovingly given a gentle yet plentiful covering of our frosting.

She loves meeting new people!!! Oh and we have live entertainment in the mornings too. Grandma Ruth's also has a small reception area, its great for meetings family gathering and any reception under 70 people. Contact us for rental information..See you soon!!!
