We re-discovered Ma's Place in Kimberling City when we were out at the Lake. It has undergone a total makeover...and wow! It looks great. The service was fantastic. And the food was fast, plentiful, and cooked to perfection. Best breakfast we have had at the lake. We look forward to coming back and trying their Friday night catfish.

We've eaten here several times on Friday evenings for the all you can eat catfish. The catfish is excellent, it arrives at your table hot and the sides are good. Staffing seems to be an issue, we've been only table in non smoking area and had to wait for drinks, refills, etc. We've had to wait to be seated and... More

I visited here once before based on seeing a large number of cars in the parking lot. I had breakfast and it was fabulous. The food was well seasoned and a HUGH portion. This time I visited, it was later in the day and I had a Reuben. The sandwich was average. The corned beef was tender, but there was... More

We came with a group of 8 for breakfast 2 times during our stay in Kimberling City. Service was friendly, fast (except for checkout, they really need another system), and food was hot when it came. Prices were good. Low to mid-range.

Had a late lunch with my sister and her friend. They picked the place and I'm glad that they did. Food was great and really great service.

Ma's has recently started closing more often, but they run specialty nights for fried chicken, catfish, etc. the food is very good, portions are large, service is sometimes spot on, but at other times a bit unpolished. Ma's is a Kimberling City institution and one of a precious few restaurants in the area. Breakfasts are worth the trip, food is... More

Stopped in for breakfast. The waiter was very personable and friendly. My eggs (which I'm very picky about) were perfect.....! I tried the corned beef hash and it was pretty good!!! I love these small places where you can get great food and great service. Two thumbs up Ma!

Quick, good food, excellent service and super friendly. If the owner is there he will talk to you and tell you about up coming specials. Best food in that area. We visited area for three days while running Dogwood Canyon for trail runs in october.

Great food with great prices. Specials every day and breakfast served all day. I've been many times and I've never been disappointed.

Have only had breakfast here, but it was very good. Service was prompt and efficient. The pancakes are huge, and everything cooked to perfection. Especially delicious are the crispy hash browns (you can specify how you want them cooked). I think prices are a tad high for a no-frills restaurant like this, but with good food and service, it's definitely... More
