I went here on a family vacation and it was fantastic. We dined during the breakfast buffet and there was great food, great staff, and great live music. I would recommend this any day! Can't wait to return.

We visit every time we're in Branson. Love the 50s theme and the musical acts. Great grilled cheese and butterscotch malts!

We arrived about the same time as a busload of people who placed 45 to-go orders! The manager made sure we were served in a timely manner and we enjoyed the music while we were eating.

When I come to Branson, I always try to visit Uptown Cafe. I love their breakfast. I probably visit Uptown Cafe three times when I'm here in Branson. I will always come back.

This place was close to our motel and it looked like there were a lot of people so we thought it might be a good place to eat. Most the people were there for the show.

This restaurant was across the street from our hotel. Too tired to drive anywhere,so we walked across the street. What a mistake. Waited quite a long time for the waitress to acknowledge us, the hostess noticed we didn't have any drinks and went to find her.

Loved the plate dinner -- pot roast, potatoes, green beans, brown gravy. Hubs' strawberry shake was out of this world good, too!

Had the Ruben and it was excellent! My husband had the hotdog and it was excellent as well but the cook forgot to add cheese as requested. Milk shake took a while to get but was good. Might come back for breakfast buffet one morning with entertainment. Waited to be seated as person was busy checking other guests out.

Thank Deborah D
