My wife and I ate here for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. They have a piano player I think from Thurs-Sun. The atmosphere is very nice in a lodge setting. The food was very good even though I would not recommend the steak. Everything else was excellent and this was my favorite meal on our trip. The chocolate... More

Great place we had New Year's Day brunch and oh my the spread of food was astonishing and overwhelming. Would for sure like to eat there again. Staff was ran by students and they all were friendly answering all of our questions.

My husband, children and I made reservations for New Year's Eve. It was a very beautiful and fine dining experience. There was a band and a dance floor. The food was exceptional. The only complaint is that it took an unusually long time but I think it was because it was a holiday. Overall a wonderful experience.

Atmosphere during the holidays is A+. Food was good too. Took my family there and enjoyed the fact that the students run all aspects of the operations. They really wanted to make the experience special. A+ for the piano player as well. We would go back in a heartbeat.

My husband and I had heard about The Keeter Center, Dobbins Dining Room, on our last trip to Branson. when spending a weekend in the area with friends in December, we decided to try it out. I had the prime rib, which was great. We got a single piece of 7-layer chocolate cake to go, and found it was enough... More

We attended the special New Year's dinner and the setting and meal were so memorable. It is 10 minutes drive from Branson. It was our first visit and the building and dining room are very grand with dark woods, copper ceiling and white linens on the tables. Such a refreshing departure from the excess of fast food in Branson. The... More

We found the Keeter House Restaurant by accident, but found this great place to be excellent. The service is provided by the college students and I believe most of the food is either grown, raised or made here. Service is great and food is excellent. There is a Sunday brunch that is outstanding. Everyone can find something they love. The... More

We were quite full but... More
