Great variety of breakfast choices. Anyone can make pancakes, eggs and bacon but Kay's kicks it up with dozens of varieties of pancakes, omelets, breakfast meats and the biscuits and gravy are done just right...little spice, little sausage, nice and thick served hot on a soft fresh biscuit. Large portions so don't be afraid to share.

Kays has been around almost since dirt, we've lived here as full timers for over 30 years and never have we been disappointed at Kays.

The food is pretty good. We did the all you can eat breakfast and it seems to be well worth the price of $11.50. If you leave hungry, you left too soon! The servers try really hard to stay up with the costumer demand. I would suggest to this place to hire a person just to serve coffee and drinks.... More

There are too many other really good restaurants s in the area to put up with this place. This place needs a major face lift, and the food was below average.

We was leaving Osage beach heading back home. We stopped by to eat before hitting the road. We ordered our food and it was ok but it didn't have a lot of flavor. It was like the omelet was made with generic cheese or something. The waitress was very very friendly though. She was on top of everything. Refills and... More

Food and service were both very good. Basic breakfast fare, but tasty. Did not do the all you can eat thingl, but it looked like a good deal if you're really hungry and a big eater.

They are serving breakfast only. But what a breakfast! For $11.50, you can order off the All You Can Eat Breakfast menu. The waitresses are fantastic! They're fast and very friendly.
