It's our ritual to eat here on the last morning of our visit before we head home. The buffet contains all the traditional breakfast choices and the food is hot! Get there after 9 am for live entertainment. It's a good value with the Branson discount card.

While you do get to hear live music while you dine, the food in our opinion was just mediocre. We dined there for dinner and for the breakfast buffet. We liked the Farmhouse Restaurant a lot better.

I was disappointed with this restaurant. It sounded very cool,but evidently we were in between any entertainment. The food was just okay, the waiter was nice.

The sandwich named prime rib was just lukewarm sliced beef. The waiter was very unfriendly. He did not check if we liked our food or offer any drink refills.

Found this place Saturday morning and turned in because we did not feel like fighting traffic to find somewhere to eat. It was good enough we ate there Sunday morning as well! Buffet was great and the lady singing was really good. Friendly staff! I will be coming back!

The atmosphere is great. Very good live music while you eat, and the prices are ever so reasonable. We had a great time, and enjoyed some excellent food. Susan Hudson was there singing, and her talents are amazing!

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.
