Delicious food. Friendly service. Trick table. One of the entertainers came up and thanked us for coming to his show. Nice atmosphere. Able to do a little shopping while there.

We go to Branson several times a year and eat here every time. Good home style cooking with quite reasonable prices. I've never ordered anything that I didn't like, but my "go to" is vegetable soup and cornbread.

I guess we just expected more from such a popular restaurant. The food, although mostly well prepared, was rather greasy and way too salty. My 12 year - old had the usual tween food, cheeseburger and fries. The fries were so over seasoned that he wouldn't eat them. Maybe we just picked the wrong day since it was during the... More

McFarlands is a great place to eat while in Branson. We ate there twice in as many days. The breakfast was great and filling. Dinner was also great make sure to try the green fried tomatoes.

One of the few places open Christmas for dinner and was very good. Was seated right away and drink order taken immediately. Sweet tea was perfect. Husband ordered the Chicken Fried Chicken and it was a huge portion and very well prepared. The sweet corn bread was awesome as well. I had a burger and fries and it was huge.... More

Seems every time we go here for a meal, things just aren't right! Sometimes good, sometimes really not so good. The hostess very nice & chatted with us with us a bit. Finally got a table, decided what we were having, I have to say my good was cold but ok even though it was a hot meal, husband was... More

If you're going to do the IMAX (recommend) this is a great place to stop for a meal beforehand. We recommend asking for real butter to put on the delicious and huge biscuits. They put a couple of "whipped spread" thimbles for your toast or biscuits but ASK for the real butter just the same. The legendary breakfast is $8.99... More
