This is a very popular cafe in downtown Branson. Good food, fair pricing & great service. The staff works really hard to service their customers. They are always very busy and do a great job. Looking forward to seeing them again.

This was one of the best places to eat in Branson. The seating is limited, but worth the wait, because the food was so tasty! Our waitress was excellent! I would definitely recommend!

The fried chicken is excellent but the hostess and waitress were less than friendly and even a bit combative when one of our party got the wrong entree.

A wonderful cozy restaurant with nice booths. Brings back memories of the 60's restaurants with the decor. Great food at a very reasonable price.

This diner is rather small, but the food was really very good. Our waitress was friendly and the dessert is homemade so do not pass it up!

Fried chicken was out of this world. Chicken fried steak was equally as good & im picky about my meat. The buns are homemade, the staff is friendly. We will be back! My 11 year old is spoiled & said the bacon was only ok & the Mac-n-cheese was a little boring. I would go there for those items!

Excellent breakfast joint 'with the locals'. Sausage very good if one likes high fat content. Tasty. Here since 1905. An original pre- tourist town establishment.

The food is all prepared very well. The salad bar is fresh and well managed. The food is very down home style with huge portions so come prepared to take some home with you. Our groups food was all very good. I would recommend it especially for lunch and breakfast although I am certain dinner is a delight as well.

Thank Kerry D
