We went for there famous breakfast which did not disappoint. We did have to wait a little, but they have ample area for this. Try to get there as early as you can as they don't have much parking, but is worth going

Love their food. Always fresh and tastes great. Chicken fried steak and eggs was amazing! When you can cut a thick steak with a fork, it’s good!! Pancake as big as the plate. Really recommend!

Got there about 1:15 so we’re seated immediately . Nice variety of lunch and breakfast so our group tried both. Located next to Wilderness Campground and cabins. Staying at a cabin so we walked and no parking worries !

You get huge amounts. The wait is about 30 minutes but worth the wait. The pancakes are 14 inches. Family owned and operated. Great service, friendly. Only complaint is parking but totally worth it.

They just started closing January and February because Branson is pretty slow during that time. Silver Dollar City is also closed until March preparing the park with new attractions and getting ready for the tourist season.
