Description: 1950's themed restaurant. We are one of Branson Missouri's most popular places to eat and listen to live music. Rock out to some of Branson's best entertainers, right at your table! Serving up our Famous Steakburgers and Fries. Get it with a hand dipped chocolate, strawberry or vanilla shake! We have a vintage style soda fountain for shakes, malts, ice cream, apple pie, hot fudge turtle, vanilla & cherry cokes and so much more. 1953 Henry J Classic Taxi Cab out front for selfies and other pics. Great Food! Great Entertainment! We host one of Branson's highest rated dinner shows... A Tribute to George Strait Dinner Show with Gordy & Debbie Wensel. They've won too many awards to list. It's a must see show.

Waitstaff is very pleasant. Food is just ok. But it was nice to sit, eat and, listen to live music while unwinding. We had a Cheeseburger and a Patty Melt....w/french fries....not much flavor. But to be fair they do specialize in the old fashioned soda fountain type of treats....not the everyday meal. The fries were shoestring and a tad bit over cooked. Meat was a flattened out patty....all of the juiciness squished out of it.

We just recently saw a brand new show at the Uptown Cafe by Bill Haley's Original Comets former lead singer and guitarist, Jackson Haney called "Bobby Socks to Woodstock." For a VERY reasonable price (around $25) you get lunch AND a show. Jackson and his show is THE BEST entertainment I've seen in Branson in a looooong time. Not only is he a great guitarist and singer, he makes you feel like your part of the family and also lets you in on some behind the scenes stories of his years with the "Rock Around The Clock" guys. This show is NOT to be missed!!!

The breakfast buffet is good, although they do not have a huge selection. Cinnamon rolls are very tasty. They do have the basic breakfast food entrees and it is reasonably priced. Coffee is good which is important. We have ate here over time and think the lunch food (burgers and tenderloin) is good. They do have frequent live entertainment which may or may not appeal to everyone. Staff is friendly.

My family and I stopped in for a quick lunch recently. Both my wife and I ordered the Steakburgers which were very good, perhaps a notch above Steak & Shake. The fries were typical shoestring, no complaints there.

The atmosphere is 50s nostalgia diner with some live music, which was also geared towards nostalgia. We sat away from the music, which was at a moderate volume and did not bother us.

Price was average for a lunch in Branson.

I wouldn't hesitate to stop in for a lunch.

My family all ordered the burgers. They were average. The staff was polite. The atmosphere was very clean and pleasant. The best part of the experience was the banana split. It was very good and about the only thing during this trip that I would do again.
