“Chances R”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

We go there every Mom. am for brfs with a group of ladies fr church the women on one side & the men on another side. On the weekend in the summer months they have a great AUCE with your own special omelet maker. This is ran by a great couple Diane & Kevin the children (grown) help out when school allows. My husband & I also go & bring our friends.

“not so great,”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

chances R we'll pass next time. We've been here twice, the breakfast buffet was okay. But we went back for dinner, and had a nasty dirty looking waitress, who may have been high. She was a veteran, but her head just wasn't with it. Our food was like leftovers out of the fridge. Not fresh tasting. One of the worst hamburgers I've ever tasted of my husbands. Mash potatoes and gravy tasted like instant. They were slam packed busy too. maybe its just me.

“Prices "R" Very Reasonable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We love coming to this place, as it is so down home and unpretentious. There is usually a mix of locals and "weekenders".

I had one of the best breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches ever at Chances R. This was a large portion with a very light breading. The cook does this on site by hand. My wife had a prime rib that was very flavorful. The waitress did not write our order down, but everything came out just as we specified. She was attentive and friendly.

There is no lake view, but you can look ad advertisements that are laminated in the table top! Don't expect atmosphere, expect good service and great food. There is the smell of smoke in the air dfom the bar, but that is an unfortunate fact of life in Central Missouri.

Great food, great service and lots of it. You have to order the onion rings!!! We will definitely eat there again when we go on vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks.

“Locals favorite on the West Side of the Lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Popular hangout on the West Side. Prime rib on the weekends, and a great Sunday breakfast buffet. Food is very good.
