The food is good and there are many choices on the menu. It is a basic small town cafe with average service.

This place has the best breakfast in town and is the perfect spot for a great lunch. They always have specials with many sides. Great relaxing atmosphere.

Old place but very clean and nice people. Good service. We did not go to the bathroom. We had 12 in our group. I would eat here again.

Me and colleagues, friends and my wife too visit this cafe frequently. Not a week passes when we are there for lunch or dinner. As a vegetarian my options are limited, however, there is plenty of food for meat eaters. They will serve breakfast items all day long. The food can be greasy at times, but they are very tasty....

We were in the area for a family reunion and we ate there as a couple and went back as a group of family members. The food is good - I didn't have one of their cinnamon rolls although they looked really good - and the staff is very nice. You can tell it's a business where the workers like... More

One of the friendliest businesses you can find. Their catfish is wonderful!! They have a generous serving and at a very reasonable price. They keep enough help that you don't have to wait forever on your food! The only thing I would change is the rolls need to be hot or at least warm when served. Also the parking is... More

We had breakfast here on a Saturday morning. As soon as we opened the door we were greeted with Good Morning! We were impressed with the fast and courteous service and also the food! This is definitely we're the locals eat and if we come back to the area we will go back

I ate a breakfast and dinner here. I enjoy bypassing the name brands and trying local cooking and The Ozarks Cafe did not disappoint me! Great service and a taste of near home cooking definitely pleased this traveler. I will dine there again when I return.

I'm finishing up a thirteen day road trip--so I have had my share of eating experiences. This cafe was just okay. Frankly, I did not find it close to what I consider home cooking or southern cooking. I had a breaded chicken sandwich which was typical cafe fare. My husband had a patty melt and considered it just okay. We... More
