My Aunt has been here before, we actually just stopped in for the Cherry Limeade. Waitress was nice & the gentleman that evening was very entertaining he said Hello to us thru the microphone & Goodybe when we left. I guess that had another band or something coming on as we were leaving about 7:00 PM that evening

One of the few places still open after an 8:00 pm show. Good place to stop for some ice cream. They also have a good breakfast buffet.

Whilst in the middle of ordering our food the server just walked off to the kitchen with no explanation. On her return she told us that she had gone to order our appetizer. We appreciated her enthusiasm in ensuring we received it quickly, but surely not while still taking our order. The food was really nothing to write home about.

We had a great late night dinner here. I don't like club sandwiches, but my wife talked me in to it and it was excellent. The staff was all very friendly, as well. We had great service. Our desserts were delicious.

The people at the hostess station sat around and chatted while we waited, and waited, and watched. They did nothing. No eye contact. No greeting. No "welcome, we'll be right with you." Just 3 unkempt people obviously wishing they had different jobs. I finally chimed in and said that we'd like to be seated. Then it took another 5 minutes... More

My family has visited this location twice. Their Grilled Cheese sandwich was great. They always have a local singer performing lounge style that gets the whole dining room singing.

This restaurant was a great find. We returned several times as we liked it so much. We went for lunch. The menu was great, the food excellent and the prices very reasonable. A bonus for us was they had live entertainment at noon. They were very good.

1950's themed restaurant. We are one of Branson Missouri's most popular places to eat and listen to live music. Rock out to some of Branson's best entertainers, right at your table! Serving up our Famous Steakburgers and Fries. Get it with a hand dipped chocolate, strawberry or vanilla shake! We have a vintage style soda fountain for shakes, malts, ice cream, apple pie, hot fudge turtle, vanilla & cherry cokes and so much more. 1953 Henry J Classic Taxi Cab out front for selfies and other pics. Great Food! Great Entertainment! We host one of Branson's highest rated dinner shows... A Tribute to George Strait Dinner Show with Gordy & Debbie Wensel. They've won too many awards to list. It's a must see show.
