We stopped here on the first day of our Branson vacation for Sunday Brunch. We were very glad we did. We didn't arrive in Branson time to make a reservation (at least 24 hours in advance), so we arrived and were put on the wait list. We waited about an hour, but we didn't mind the wait as we were able to wander the ground and the entirety of the Keeter Center. The place is stunningly beautiful and has so many intricate details that it took almost an hour just to see everything. Many of the details are made by hand by the students at the college and the care and time really shine. They also has a small store to browse while waiting and I purchased pancake mix made from flour that was ground right on campus.
The brunch was delicious and included a breakfast station (pancakes, eggs, etc), salad station, entree station, pasta station, ham station and dessert station. Everything prepared and served by the students and was of the highest quality. The pasta was very good as was the ham and the selection of desserts was to die for.
A visit here is a must if you are in the Branson area!

The food at the Keeter Center at College of the Ozarks is absolutely amazing. Their farm to table concept arrives with homemade rolls made from wheat ground onsite served with butter churned from cows the students milk every day. We concluded our meal with delectable butter cake made from their own wheat and butter. We especially enjoyed the creamiest ice cream made right there at the college. The dining room was elegant and charming with a view of the lovely Ozark Mountains. The wait staff were students that were dressed in white coats and used professional and friendly manners. I highly recommend the experience.

The food here is excellent also. There is a wonderful selection on the menu. The students do an excellent job managing, serving, cooking and every aspect of the Center. I believe this is a must while in Branson.
