The Best Cinnamon Rolls ever! They are quite large too! We always stop here when we are in Branson. We stop at the beginning of our stay and take some back to the condo. Then, we return before we leave town so that we can take some home. (I do call in the day before for the take home order.... More

Our group went to Grandma Ruth's on Sunday, March 19, 2017. The cinnamon rolls are very good. There is plenty of seating as we had 9 in our group. Grandmas son works with her in the business. There was also a musician performing on an elevated platform. He was singing country songs and interacting with the customers. Take time out... More

We come to Branson 4 to 6 times a year, this time our first for 2017. This visit once again proved why Grandma Ruth's is the most talked about eatery in Branson! We did the toffee roll again and the new orange roll, words can't describe it! Hands down the BEST! The entire experience here is true Americana, just like... More

This was the best surprise of our vacation. We stopped to get some cinnamon rolls here on the way out of town, and they were warm & delicious! The best cinnamon roll I've ever eaten!! We'd highly recommend this to anyone in the area! The family was there baking the cinnamon rolls, and my children enjoyed getting to see them... More

People are right when they say this is a do not miss place in Branson. Staff is super friendly. Live music all morning! My husband and I both got a caramel roll and they were giant! We had to get a box to take the remainder with us. I love that you can watch them make the rolls. Several times... More

Cinnamon and caramel rolls to die for. They are huge and scrumptious. I recently bought a dozen dinner rolls for a gathering. They were really good and a great price. Better than store bought by a long shot. They have music in the adjoining seating area. I've never stayed for that but it's a no frills homey atmosphere.

Neat place to grab a cinnamon roll. They are so good and Grandma gives the kids a free cookie and actually carries on a conversation with them. My niece enjoyed it!

May be good right out of the oven, but what cinnamon rolls aren't? Other than being over-sized, these cinnamon rolls are nothing special.

Grandma Ruth makes cinnamon rolls, but she sells memories. The recipe hasn't varied in generations, and it's a very good thing. Grandma Ruth is here, sitting behind a screen door, sharing her stories with anyone who wants to talk. Friendly family owned and run establishment, and really good product.

Grandma Ruth's is an inviting little dessert shop, offering some of the best old fashioned cinnamon rolls, caramel rolls and decadently delicious toffee rolls you have ever enjoyed anywhere. Our rolls are baked fresh every all during our hours of operation. Then basted in warm melted butter and ever so lovingly given a gentle yet plentiful covering of our frosting. Easily making these some of the most gooey and delicious rolls ever. A must on your trip to Branson, Missouri. Stop by and meet "Grandma Ruth", chat and get a picture if you like. She loves meeting new people!!! Oh and we have live entertainment in the mornings too. Grandma Ruth's also has a small reception area, its great for meetings family gathering and any reception under 70 people. Contact us for rental information..See you soon!!!
