We went here with several of our friends. A spectacular and beautiful place overlooking the river. We had perfect seats and outstanding service. The food was spectacular. They accept reservations. I would highly recommend this place!

Traveling with elderly parents and parked in the handicap area. Walked to the door and it was locked. We were a bit confused, but within moments an employee stepped outside and advised that portion of the restaurant wasn't "quite ready" yet but invited us to take a seat on the bench and she would come get us shortly. We asked... More

Our dinner at J Bruners was excellent. After varying reviews we weren't sure what to expect. But you can't always go just by reviews. Our reservation was kept on time on a Friday night. Amy our server was prompt, courteous and brought our appetizer and main courses in a timely manner. My red trout with almonds was very good. The... More

We went to this restaurant after 8:00 p.m. with a group of 20.They had no problem handling our large on short notice. The wait staff was excellent and all the food prepared was great. I had the salmon. The onion rings and mushrooms are great appetizers.

The food was very good. I had the fried lobster tail it was delicious. My brother had the mahi mahi it was also good and my mother had the KC strip that was good. The only reason I rated it a 3 instead of a 4 was our wait time. We didn't make reservations so we waited to be seated... More

This was the best restaurant we have eaten at in Osage Beach. My husband had the prime rib and it was the best he had ever had. I enjoyed the shrimp. Highly recommend

Haven't been there in years & was so looking forward to the mushroom & chicken liver dish. I asked for it as an entree with a salad. My (adult) kids ordered the lobster bisque & the macaroni with lobster as an entree to share. When we got our "meals" they were so small compared to before. I guessed it was... More

J. Bruner's has been one of "the" restaurants to go to for several years. We went with a large group (10) at my recommendation and no one was very impressed. Even though we were a large group we were just about the only one's in the place. Service was not good; very slow. One of the younger servers seemed upset... More
