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.

I know on Sunday there would be a wait. The wait was about 15 min. Server was very busy and it took another 15 min. I think my sausage gravy was from a can.

We were there on a Sunday around 9:30, and it was busy, but not horrible. They have this deal $11 for all you can eat, but it's not buffet. You order from the menu. My 15 year old son started with an order of pancakes and an omelet. Then he ordered another order of pancakes, and another order of pancakes... More

Great local restaurant with the "lake" flair. However, the first smell is not food, but cigarettes. The smoking section is inside. Obviously, the non-smokers far out numbered the smokers but we still smelled the burning tobacco and paper. We will not return if smoking is still allowed.

The first thing you notice when you walk into this place is the cigarette smoke that will smack you in the face as soon as you open the door. It's gross and very unappetizing, but that is most places at the lake. I can't wait for everything to be smoke-free. At Kay's they have a child working there and I... More
