Deciding where to eat each meal on vacation is not just about filling a growling tummy. For many, one of the most important parts of vacation is enjoying delicious food. Branson can fill your order no matter what you’re craving.
For big appetites you can find some super-sized plates around town. At Danna’s BBQ & Burger Shop, a local favorite, try the Big Big Pig Sandwich. It is 7 oz. of pork piled on garlic Texas toast. If you’re in the mood for one of the best and biggest steaks around, head on over to Montana Mike’s Steakhouse for the Ancho T-Bone- a 20 oz Rancher’s T-Bone crusted with ancho pepper seasoning, grilled to your liking and topped with ancho butter. At Shorty Small’s the Macho Nachos are served on a plate piled so high you can barely see over it. Shorty Small's is a perfect choice before or after a production at the Andy Williams' Moon River Theatre. Starlite Theatre is home to the Starlite Diner where you can enjoy homemade soups, salads, hot and cold sandwiches, hamburgers, and more. For a super-sized dessert, try their huge banana split which features over nine scoops of ice cream and three bananas!
If you are on a tight schedule, give Golden Corral or Grand Country Buffet a try. Both are home to dozens of tasty choices that will please everyone in your party and are great when you’re pressed for time. You can fill up and keep going without slowing down. Before or after dining at Grand Country Buffet, see Down Home Country, Comedy Jamboree, or Grand Jubilee at Grand Country Music Hall.
We get asked all the time where the locals eat. In Branson you’ll find several options that are delightfully Branson…meaning they can only be found here. McFarlain’s Family Restaurant inside the IMAX Entertainment Complex is great for individuals or families offering a large menu of familiar fair. Their Vigilante Taco is a favorite, featuring a huge slab of sweet cornbread smothered with chili and your favorite taco fixin’s. Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Grill is like no other restaurant in town. Not only are you served delicious meals, but each visit comes with a heaping side of nostalgia. While your food is being prepared take a stroll around the restaurant filled with Dick Clark’s memorabilia from his years working with legendary musicians. Dine at the grill after enjoying The Bretts or before Legends in Concert, both appearing at Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theatre. If Italian is your craving, Branson has it covered. At Florentina’s Ristorante Italiano you find chef created dishes that will transport you to another place without ever leaving Branson. If something a little lighter sounds good to you then check out Vasken’s Deli, one of the busiest local lunch spots. With one bite of their delicious gyros or hummus, you’ll know why. Specializing in Mediterranean dishes, you’ll find expertly prepared dishes from only fresh ingredients all made to order.
Branson has more great options that include dinner and a show. Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction serves up a finger licking good 4-course feast while you watch a stampede of horses, bison, pigs, chicken, and even ostriches. The audience participates in a friendly competition of North vs. South. The Showboat Branson Belle provides a delicious meal featuring live entertainment all aboard a beautiful paddlewheel boat. At Round Up on the Trail you'll be treated with a delicious chuck wagon dinner & show celebrating the authentic roots of the American Cowboy. A delicious three-course dinner can be added before or after any show at the Hughes Brothers Theatre, served in the theatre dining balcony. Another popular dinner and show option is at Golden Corral’s Showroom. New for 2015, Barbara Fairchild performs her 2-hour show while guests enjoy a delicious plated meal experience.
Many of our visitors will take in some shopping while in Branson. Just because you’re shopping you shouldn’t have to go hungry. While shopping at the Branson Craft Mall, stay and enjoy freshly prepared sandwiches, salads or soup from the Pickin' Porch Deli. The Grand Village offers two delicious dining options. Mel’s Hard Luck Diner is home to Branson’s singing servers where some of the most talented voices in Branson will serenade you while you enjoy your meal. If you're looking for something on the lighter side, stop by Sugar Leaf Bakery & Cafe. Their soups, salads, sandwiches, and bakery items are simply amazing. In Historic Downtown Branson you'll find several dining options serving your home-style favorites including Branson Cafe, Clockers Cafe, and Farmhouse Restaurant. If you're planning to spend some time at Branson Landing, dine at one of their fine restaurants. Black Oak Grill offers a menu filled with updated twists on good old fashion comfort food. If you’re in the mood for something with a little heat, try Cantina Laredo. This upscale Mexican restaurant not only has the best guacamole and margaritas in town, but you can physically feel the heat from the giant Branson Landing fountain fire towers when dining on their balcony. 2015 brings two new eateries to Branson Landing: Buffalo Wild Wings and Big Whiskey's American Bar & Grill.
If fresh farm to table food is what you’re looking for, we have a unique Branson recommendation. At the Keeter Center on the campus of College of the Ozarks, students prepare and serve visitors in the Dobyns Dining Room. The menu consists of beef, pork, vegetables and breads found on the campus. The college has a farm, dairy barn, grist mill and bakery.
