Family type eating very good . The service is excellent it is mid price. Good home cook meals. We felt that this was a great place to eat if you don`t know what your hungry for. Good location and Imax theater is in same facility.

We always make a point to dine at McFarlain's because they provide good home style cooking with efficient, friendly service. Their cornbread, pies and cobblers areexcellent. We have ejoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner and been pleased on each occasion.

Located in the Branson Imax complex, McFarlain's offers down-home cooking in big portions. Some of our favorites are the chicken-fried chicken smothered in gravy, and the pork chop dinner; of course with the huge helping of fresh-made, sweet corn bread.

We go to Branson once or twice a year. This is the first time we went to the McFarland's Family restaurant. We found the food and service to be very good. The server was nice and friendly. The prices were reasonable. The atmosphere was nice. We will return.
