The meal was good but the 3 berry pie was excellent. Good service. It is right downtown and gets really busy but the servers handled the crowd well.

As is our custom, dinner and pie (or cobbler) at MacFarlains for at least one meal is a must! Their homemade chicken pot pie is a favorite of ours as is the meatloaf. Have never had a bad meal there. Even on the busiest days, service is fast and friendly. For some extra fun...ask for the "special" table! If you... More

This restaurant is located in the same building as the Branson IMAX and shares a parking lot. So, depending on the time of day and the movies playing parking can be a bit of an issue. But don't let that stop you. McFarlain's is a southern styled restaurant that serves all three meals. The food is consistently good and the... More

Came here today for a light lunch with family. Food was delicious, served quickly, and fairly inexpensive. Service was great. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Also, ask if a round table is available for a fun surprise!

We were given a $30.00 coupon for this place, so we went! All the staff we had contact with was wonderful and friendly, and our waiter was great!

This restaurant has the friendliest staff and wonderful home cooked food. The cornbread and butter are simply amazing! The menu has just about the best variety of food to please the pickiest of eaters. We had a large group and everyone was pleased with there selections. We had made reservations in advance, so there was no waiting to be seated.

Fantastic food served hot and with a smile. From the honey-butter cornbread on, fantastic home-style cooking, the way mama used to make it. From burgers to steaks, they got it. Fried Green tomatos, yummy.
