Always come by for lunch and special occasions. The goat cheese almond salad is a must for me. All food is tasteful. Never have to wait long for table.

This dining experience was most enjoyable and the food was excellent. Highly recommend the chili and cornbread on a cold fall/winter night

We stayed at the Big Cedar Resort last week and needed a quick place to eat dinner after a late arrival. We chose to eat on the resort instead of looking in Branson. The Devil's Pool restaurant is small but elegant in a rustic way....More

We went to Devil's Pool for lunch while spending a long weekend in a nearby cabin with my siblings and their spouses. We sat on the deck, which was beautiful, and the food and service were both excellent. The portions were huge, so beware!

My wife and I were at the Big Cedar for a quick get away and as the weather had turned cold we decided to stay and eat local rather than head towards Branson. Our experiences over the years had been merely OK and service often...More

Prices are higher than many, but everything is a little pricey at Big Cedar Lodge. Food and service was very good though.

Good buffet for breakfast for $15 or order off the menu. As you may expect this was not an over the top buffet but excellent for the price. The menu items were good and service nice but a bit slow.

Excellent service, meals and ambiance. Clearly the best dinning value at Big Cedar Lodge. We have dine at Devils Pool for breakfast, lunch and dinner numerous times. Always excellent service, meals and dinning experience.

Service was great, salad was not cold or fresh and over dressed. Steak had great flavor except ordered medium and got it well+, not even close to medium. Very disappointing and can recommend.

Come join us for a casual dining experience that combines the best of southern home-style fare with the rustic elegance of a century-old log structure, steeped in history as rich as the sumptuous desserts prepared by our chefs. There is no mystery as to what attracted entrepreneur Jude Simmons to this slice of Ozarks wilderness. The gentle hillsides were an ideal backdrop for his rustic getaway that would reflect the grandeur of Adirondack lodges and entertain in casual elegance. The home featured native materials, including a huge stone fireplace that still warms our dining room when fall and winter chill the air. Today, hand-wrought metal chandeliers cast a warm glow over antique furnishings and our 100-year-old mahogany bar. Bark covered logs and exposed rafters are a fitting complement to the sporting gear and animal mounts that adorn our walls in the Bass Pro tradition. Outdoor balcony seating is an option as weather permits.
