We went to two restaurants for breakfast but found both over crowded with waiting and notices on the door apologizing for lack of help. Starvin Marvin’s has a breakfast buffet that took care of what we needed. In and out in an hour and on...with our day.More

Went here with our family of four because of the reviews. Wife’s PT was average. Daughter’s chicken Alfredo was large, but no flavor. My shrimp po-boy was good. But everything was on the higher priced end and just kind of blah. Wished we had gone...somewhere else.More

Read quite a few reviews and on average the ones not complaining about price were pretty good. Noticed that breakfast had the fewest negative reviews in those I scanned and some good ones mixed in. Well, I and my wife were less than pleased. I...have had better breakfast at a Holiday Inn express. And I generally skip the complimentary breakfast there due to the low quality. The sausage gravy had no flavor. The fresh fruit bar only had strawberries grapes, and cantaloupe, the rest was all canned fruit. The bacon was paper thin and high in fat content vs meat. Potatoes were ok seasoned and looked browned but were just kind of soggy with no crunch from the browning. I really wanted to like this after reading reviews. If you decide to try it I hope your experience is better than mine.More

Easily the best food we had the whole trip. The buffet was excellent and worth every penny. If you're unsure about Cajun food in Missouri 3 out of our party of 6 are Louisiana natives and had no complaints whatsoever.

The food was absolutely terrible. We opened the buffet at 11:30 am and the food was cold and was hard to even eat. We honestly thought about getting up and leaving after the first few bites, but we went back and tried again with no...better luck. The chicken and fish were cold, the Salisbury steak, if that was what it was, the worse!!! As we were leaving other people were discussing how bad it was and were disappointed they spent $60 for their family of four. So we we were not the only ones upset. We are local and have lived here for 10 years. That was our first time to eat at Starvin Marvin’s and our last. It is the only restaurant we have said that about in Branson!!More
