“Twice as good!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

On the advice of friends we enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Keeter Center. The setting is lovely, the food delicious (you must NOT pass on the desserts), and the waiters were more than happy to answer our many questions about College of the Ozarks. We enjoyed it so much, we returned for lunch another day during our stay in Branson.

“Wow”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

The best restaurant I have been to in a long time. Students staff the place. High end lodge decor. Many of the products are prepared from ingredients produced on campus. Wonderful service. Knockout desserts. You cannot go wrong here. Wanted to try Sunday brunch, but it was sold out.

“Don't miss this experience”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

This is NOT your average restaurant, this is an experience. Located just outside of the main entrance to the campus, the building houses a beautiful (small) hotel as nice as any Hilton Inn. I could write a chapter just on the building, but suffice it to say: just go! Much of the food served including meats and vegetable are grown on campus by the students who ALL work on campus to pay for their tuition, books, room, and board. You will not only eat a wonderful meal, but you will help to support a great school and great concept that needs to be copied everywhere. Leave time to tour the building AND the campus. They have two museums on campus that are open to the public as well.

“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

I heard about this restaurant when booking our trip to Branson. So glad we went! The service was great, food better than most restaurants and the atmosphere was very nice. We had private dinning out on the deck. This is a Catholic College, the restaurant is ran by the students. They have a dairy farm, they grind their own flour, make homemade breads and biscuits, grow their veg. and smoke the meats. So the food was excellent! If your in Branson area it's a great stop.

“Great for birthday and anniversary celebrations!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We frequent the restaurant often and never go away disappointed. The food and service are superb. If you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary, they will make you feel very special!
Food is also reasonably priced for the quality you receive.
