We ate at this restaurant in the IMAX complex before a movie. It is a family oriented restaurant. Our meals were very good and came with honey cornbread which was delicious. Service was quick and server was friendly.

American family style food.. nothing special. Service is great and food is fast so you can eat and make it to the movies without missing your show.

My husband and I ate here at mcfarlains for breakfast and dinner. The food was outstanding, prices were reasonable and the service was great. Mcfarlains has some of the best pancakes and fish in branson. Their honey cornbread is probably the best cornbread that I have ever ate. They also give you big portions of food. Another thing I liked... More

The meals and appetizers were very tasty. Fried green tomatoes were a special treat. We feel that we got what we paid for. Plan to visit them very soon.

Ordered catfish. Two large fillets. Not sure it was catfish. Price ok. Service was very slow. We were there for lunch on Sunday. Wanted pancakes but they stopped serving them at 11. Nice little shopping ares. Bought a black leather belt that I needed.

Great place for shopping and food. We are alone here and on holidays they are open with their full menu and don't rob you blind to eat. Normal prices and I am thankful for that.

We always try to make a stop here when we come to Branson for the fried sweet potatoes or the Vigilante Taco. Serves good old comfort food, nothing fancy, and the service is usually up to par.

This is a full service restaurant inside a large building that has a movie theatre and many shops. The food is always good. They have great homemade pies.

Food was ok, took over 45 minutes for food, brought out someone else's order first. It wasn't very busy. Way overpriced for the quality of the food.
