Went to dinner on July 11, 2015 and ordered the ribs and the food was excellent. Our server, Dee, was one of the best servers we have ever had. She checked on us often and made sure we were very happy with our meal. She thought it was taking too long to get our meal so she brought us complimentary... More

We went in with a small group and we were quickly seated. Our food was hot and fresh not to mention delicious. Staff was friendly as well. We will definitely be going back when we are in town

We came up to Branson for a family get together and came with a few family members for dinner on Saturday, although it was pretty busy the service was prompt and the food was a slight bit delayed (not bad though) but considering how many people came in at the same time it was reasonable and the General Manager came...

Went here because it was close to where we were staying. Seated quickly, there were only two other tables with people. It took twenty minutes to get our hush puppies, which were burned. When they came out they were a small portion, beacuse apparently they were confused, and thought they were a side, not appetizer portion. They brought us more,... More
