Let me start by saying that we are a super-busy family. A weekend where no one has a practice, a tournament, or a camp, is precious. Today we took a road trip up to Mountain Home and had dinner at Gaston's. The restaurant is right on the water so, of course, it's beautiful. It has a fun atmosphere with bicycles... More

I have dined at this resort many evenings. The food was incredible and the view of the river, especially when the dam gates have been opened is awesome.

This restaurant has a very beautiful view and the food is OK too. I think they could have a lot better food but it's probably the best you will get in the area. Service was good except for the hostess was really slow in seating us. She had many other things she seem like she was attending too. They have... More

We live in southern Missouri, and unfortunately, we could never find a lot of choices for a nice dining experience in our area. This morning, that all changed today with the brunch at Gaston's. We went there with mixed emotions, but all was excellent from the minute we drove through by the "welcome" sign. Went into the restaurant and we... More

A beautiful restaurant sitting over the White River. It is just a step below fine dining. As a beautiful buffet on Sundays. The restaurant is quite full of antique bicycles, boat motors, etc.

Expensive! An interesting place to visit with a beautiful view. Think about going elsewhere unless you're up for paying a lot for all the mediocre food you can eat.

Susie, we appreciate that you gave us a review. It looks like you visited our restaurant during April of 2016. During March of 2016, we had a change in the management of the restaurant, so it has taken some time for the new manager/chef to get things worked out. Since then there have been many changes to improve the quality... More

We had lunch and dinner here. Both were really good. Dinner was great with Chef Rick visiting tables and chatting with diners. He answered any questions you might have. I had the Pork Osso Bucco, my first, and it melted in my mouth. It was very flavorful with the perfect amount of seasonings. The salad bar is huge. We also... More

Wonderful views, incredible quiet for so many people being there. Good hiking rails. Don't go to the restaurant, however. Big disappointment. Food undercooked and definitely underwhelming. Had to send my steak back and it was returned in the same, sorry raw condition. Staff were friendly and kind. Unexpected charges: If you are in a cabin and want clean towels, that... More
