J. Bruner's serves the best steak's at the lake they melt in your mouth. I've been there many times and it will always be my favorite at the lake.

We have been going to Bruner's for over 20 years and have always had a great steak dinner experience. However, this time I thought I would try something different so I ordered Farfalle Marinara. I was a little apprehensive since this quite different from the steaks that Bruner's is known for. Was I surprised how good this dish was, Italian... More

Best piece of prime rib I have ever had! Service timely-no rush. Somewhat pricey, especially for that add on lobster tail which would have gone so nicely with the meat-oh well...

We were a party of 4. Quaint place, good service by Stefan, and the food was great. We had shrimp cocktail, which were huge and livers for apps. Then had the prime rib. Everything was exactly the way it should taste. We were full and happy and will return.

This restaurant is located in a old house next to a gas station. Absolutely no view of anything. The inside is equally as disappointing with fake fireplaces and red velvet curtains. The food is OK but everything is served ala carte. It's $7 for a baked potato ! The original chef worked at the Potted Steer in the 70's. But... More

My wife and I love this restaurant. The view is beautiful from the top of the bluff looking down the lake channel. The food is good, but it becomes even better with the atmosphere. This is a good place for a sunset dinner with wine and your sweetie.

J. Bruner's is an excellent place and a "must" when going to the Lake of the Ozarks area. My husband and I had a great experience there. The waitress was very sweet and professional. She made recommendations for us to try the onion rings and the prime rib. The onion rings were a work of art! The onion never came... More

We pulled up to the door at 9:45pm not sure if kitchen was still open. Manager saw us and welcomed us in. The service was excellent and we were treated like royalty. Our waitress provided great service and clued us in on appetizers (Onion rings to die for!) and house-made salad dressing. Steaks were tender and juicy-real quality! No rush,... More
