We enjoyed hearing the stories of the international students who were serving the meals. The menu offered a large variety and everyone at our table was very satisfied. Leave room to enjoy the ice cream which is served in the main hall of the college.

College of the Ozarks is a highlight visit when in Branson. We particularly enjoy eating at the Keeter Center where the students, from all over the world, serve. If you aren't hungry for a meal try the icecream!

This is a wonderful school. The way they run the education is amazing. Stop by and talk to them they are willing to tell you all about it, and they have some good museums on site that have great displays.

Visited for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed both the food and service at the lodge restaurant and the accompanying history museum. Hard Work University is a one of a kind experience that is only minutes away from all of the famous Branson attractions.

Have a meal at the Keeter Center, excellent food and the best service. Take time to tour the museum and the tractor museum.
