Great food, love the alligator bites, although wish they were still served with the green sauce. However the fish dip was extraordinary! Waitress, Hope, was a hoot! Efficient, knowledgeable, friendly and witty, didn't hover but was right there when needed. What more could you want.More

But they did raise prices this past fall, more than a little! Fish speciality menu here. Attractive setting on edge of Lake Taneycomo (White River) where the moored restaurant "floats".

We each had the almond trout. It was fixed perfectly, with the best brocelli side I have had for a long time. Service was very good also.

Description
Voted "The Best Overall Restaurant" in Branson, Missouri, our historic floating restaurant is located just off the shore of Lake Taneycomo on the famous White River of the Ozarks. Floor-to-ceiling glass offers dramatic views of this beautiful waterway; in fact, many of our guests arrive by boat, tying up on our pier to rest and enjoy a leisurely dinner and drinks. As the name suggests, fresh seafood is the focus here, with a range of delicious entrees from both fresh and saltwater-but the menu also features hearty steaks, chicken, and ribs, plus sandwiches and burgers. Celebrating the traditional flavors of the Ozark Mountains and our love of the water, the White River Fish House promises a unique and memorable dining experience for young and old alike.
