Stopped here for lunch and arrived before the lunch rush. Food was great as well as the service. The best part would have to be their desserts!! Peanut butter cup pie is highly recommended!

Yes it was Friday night and they were busy--NO EXCUSE!! Only ordered tenderloin sandwich with crispy fries and double cheeseburger with crispy fries. It is a shame that we had to send all back because food was cold. How do you serve a cold hamburger?...More

Jumped off of the highway for breakfast after leaving Branson early. Enjoyed the meal and service. Generous portions of well prepared food. The fried pork cutlet topped with sausage gravy was awesome. Grits, eggs, French toast, all good.

I had a business meeting here for breakfast. The waitress was less than accommodating and when I asked for the WiFi password, I was told it wasn’t for customers. It’s 2017...

Fast, friendly service and a clean restaurant. Great selection of home style food that was delicious. I recommend this restaurant if you need to stop in the Bolivar area.

We were there on a Sunday when they have a buffet. Good home style cooking. Featured menu items include tenderloin sandwiches and dinners. Would eat there again.
