My family of 6 ranging in age from 10-44 ate dinner here. Overall, the food was ok. I would say my family enjoyed the Chicken Tenders the best. Our waiter was good and very accommodating. The live entertainment was ok and changes daily.

What a neat place. We ate here 3 times in Branson. We split a country fried steak that was HUGE. Also had lunch and went there after a show for a banana split. They have singers come in and sing on stage while you eat.

Overall cleanliness was good... Waitress was very friendly and attentive... Food was mediocre... Chicken wings were prebreaded as well as the fried shrimp... There was ice in my daughter's ice cream... Will not be returning...

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.
