Below average food and service. Seriously lacks air conditioning capacity. Way way over hyped. Warm beer too and after a hot day that plain sucks.

My husband and I ordered the mahi mahi with crab meat--delicious! The portions were huge; the potatoes (rice for my husband), the broccoli, and the cornbread were also delicious and generous. We had no room for dessert, but we will be going back for some. The decor and view were an added benefit. The service is impeccable!

Took my dad here on a father son weekend expecting it to measure up to the high standards of the Branson Landing. The location is terrific, the ambiance is really cool, the service is good, but the food just wasn't there. While I certainly understand that the target market is retirees with their grandkids; they can add a little seasoning... More

Nothing we ate had any flavor. The location and decor are nice, the service is good but the food is so bland you don't know you are eating. There is a real problem with flys too, so while you don't know you are eating, you are very aware that you are being eaten. I suppose for Branson the place is... More

The location is beautiful and one of the few Branson restaurants with a view. The rest was a let down, first of all the restaurant was FULL of flies. There were 5 flying around our table and they were biting people. The food was cheap and bland. The fish dip was a lump of under seasoned dip with ritz cracker... More

We had the campfire grilled local trout and it was spectacular! Complimentary cornbread was also delicious. Fantastic views over the water and great staff.

Wonderful atmosphere with friendly service and tasty food. Portions are large. We tried alligator tail, catfish and fish and chips. Loved the coleslaw and the jalapeño cornbread!

The food was good but thought a bit expensive. We had to wait for more than 30 minutes for a table. Restaurant sits out over the water and it is very pretty to look at lake.

We saw good reviews on Trip Advisor and we went for dinner. There was a 30 minute wait that gave us time to sit on the outdoor deck. Beautiful! Our waitress was not overly friendly but very efficient. The penne shrimp pasta was good as was the salmon. It reasonably price and I would recommend it!
