We had a great breakfast here. The pancake was huge. I advise people to split the plates here because the meals will be more then you can eat for sure. Very friendly and efficient staff. Will certainly be back when we are at Branson.

Happened to drive by this on our way to church on Sunday AM at Praise and Worship Lutheran (we are visiting Branson from Denver for the first time) and noticed a long line outside of this backwoods looking place. After service we decided to check...it out. The wait was still 30 minutes but they had great (free) coffee and lots of Missouri nostalgia to look at will while waiting. Long story short this is in the top 5 breakfast joints I’ve been to across America. Price is right too. Highly recommend!More

We have been gong to Billy Gails for years when we visit Branson. Though I miss the cozy small cafe it used to be, it is still a treat to go enjoy their wonderful fodd and friendly staff. Well worth the wait to get in.

Excellent food and service! Go hungry…14” pancakes are big! 😂 Breakfast was definitely worth the wait! Sharing an omelet and adding a pancake was perfect for the 2 of us.

This place was recommended for breakfast, so since we got breakfast with our hotel, I didn’t figure I’d try them. However, I was close by and wanted lunch so figured I’d give it a try. I was not disappointed. We chose the triple something that...was listed as a signature offering. It came with 2 catfish, 2 tenders, 3 shrimp. Fries, hush puppies and a small dish of coleslaw came with it. There was enough food for hubby and I as well as the 10 year old with us. Staff were very friendly and food arrived promptly.More

We use to love to stop and eat every time we visit Branson . But this time was a huge let down :( the food wasn’t the quality it use to be and the service was terrible . Unfortunately we won’t be back .

Friends told us about this place a few years ago. We come to Branson a lot and make a visit here every time we come. Pancakes bigger than your plate and huge omelets. We often share meals because there’s so much food. Great atmosphere as...well. They expanded the parking lot recently which helps with the crowds.More

The food and friendly staff here made for an exceptional experience! First, get the hush puppies and thank yourself later. The sweet cream pancakes could be eaten plain they were so delicious and moist. The gravy for the biscuits and gravy was peppery and thick...and everything a great gravy should be. The bacon was also crunchy and cooked to perfection. The chicken fried steak is also a notable mention and wasn't tough or chewy. Our server was very friendly and attentive as well and made sure our drinks were always full. The portions here are also huge and everyone in our party took leftovers.More

Excellent service, thanks Amanda for doing an awesome job! Food was delicious! We have eaten here many times and know to read the menu. People are often surprised at the size of the portions. Plate sharing is a great way to reduce the size of...the portions. Everything we had was delicious. Will return when back in Branson.More

The tables are entirely too close together to maintain a safe distance between patrons right now. They are actually too close to easily get in and out of our seats. We felt extremely uncomfortable with the person at the next... More
