I would have to agree with the other reviews food was okay service was great, view was good warning if you do not like it cold don't sit next to the windows this is the AC vents and it is very cold. We arrived for the lunch buffet which my wife choose and I ordered off the menu. Neither one of us was that impressed at best average food.

We enjoyed the folk center but not the restaurant. The food was not good and it was not hot. I got chicken and dumplings and I couldn't eat them. You would be better off to picnic at the park for a meal.

We were at the Ozarks Center from Thursday night to Sunday and had one meal here. It was very good! I heard other people in our group talk about how good the breakfast buffet was. We got to sit by the window and the beautiful green was very soothing. Waitress took very good care of us without being nosy. Catfish was super and my chicken fry was very good. We ate in our room every day for breakfast and I am sorry we missed the breakfast!
