“OVER THE TOP BEST BRUNCH EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Don't forget your reservation. Follow the crowd to the best Sunday brunch in the Ozarks. Nothing is forgotten at this brunch. Wonderful surroundings including a student pianist. The student staff is wonderful as they make your dining experiences one of the best ever. They truly do have a garden to table concept with many of the food items from their garden, dairy, and mill. Don't miss their own smoked ham with a wonderful glaze to homemade waffles, pasta creations made before your eyes with custom made omelets. The salad/fruit bar has an ice sculpture and the dessert table is incredible including some sugar free and gluten free items. Everything is made from scratch. One of the best parts is every time you buy anything , you are helping a student graduate from school debt free!!! Don't miss out!

“Still the best brunch I have ever eaten - sorry Tan-Tar-A...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I won't gush on and on like I did in last year's review.
The students work the entire restaurant. Their service is spot on first class! The food is just amazing.

I recommended you make a reservation or the wait can be long. And try to eat small portions of everything, so you can sample everything. New this time was the freshly made pasta station. Awesome.

P.S. ABSOLUTELY save room for dessert, or eat it first. But either way, don't skip the dessert table.

“Very nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The students were very attentive to every detail from the moment we walked into the restaurant and put our name on the wait list until we left. We enjoyed our meal and the gift shop and bakery area, The menu offered a wide selection of locally grown foods and the desserts are tasty. This is a must visit, one of a kind restaurant when in the Branson area.

“I highly recommend you visit this campus.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

The campus is lovely, the students are so pleasant, museums are good. We were there on a Friday for the farmers market and bought many items. We then had a delicious lunch at the Keeton Center. Our server, Ashley could not have been better. I was so impressed at how clean and well taken care of EVERYTHING was all over campus. We will return next trip to Branson. Good job students!

“Beautiful Lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Restaurant on campus was just beautiful. Food was excellent as well as the service. We enjoyed our lunch and found the visit to the lodge very informative. Much of the food served is grown and prepared on campus. The college has much to offer its students who work for their tuition in all jobs throughout the campus including the restaurant and lodge rooms. There is a self guided tour of the campus.
