Dobyn's Dining Room, located in the Keeter Center at College of the Ozarks, offers one of the Branson area's most unique dining experiences!  An expansive and elegant dining hall with rustic touches of the Ozarks throughout, Dobyn's offers a menu of both the eclectic and the familiar.  This popular restaurant is operated by students of the college as part of the school's culinary program, and many of the ingredients used are sourced directly from the college itself.  A work-for-tuition four-year institution, College of the Ozarks has an operating dairy farm, greenhouses, pigs, a grist mill, and more.  Fondly dubbed "Hard Work U," the college prides itself on being almost completely self-sufficient when it comes to goods and services.  Serving lunch, dinner, and an unforgettable Sunday Brunch, you'll discover menu items like Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad, Pot Roast Tacos, Peach & Blackberry Salad, Smoked Meatloaf, Smoked Catfish Cakes, Ozark Hot Brown, dishes with pasta that's made in-house, and a nice variety of other savory entrees.  The famous Sunday Brunch offers hot entrees, side dishes, salads, cold cuisine, carved meats, and breakfast selections that include made-to-order waffles and omelets, and a variety of desserts.  The students also operate a bakery at Dobyn's Dining Room that includes biscotti, muffins, cookies, danish, baklava, tarts, and a nice selection of coffees.  And we can't forget the college-made ice cream; it's simply delightful and likely to ruin you for any other ice cream anywhere!  Isn't it time you enjoyed a meal in Branson that you honestly can't find in any other destination?  You'll find that meal only at Dobyn's Dining Room in the Keeter Center at College of the Ozarks!

Every time we are in Branson we make it a point to eat here. The lodge is phenomenal, the dining area spacious and inviting, the attendants happy to share their story, and ready to serve and to please the customer. What I really like is the unusual cuisine, the breads & spreads--not going to find this any-old-place. A truly one of a kind American eatery.

Took a group to Dobyn's Dining for dinner and the food was terrible. The worst thing was that the event manager was VERY unaccommodating and rude. Usually when a party is disappointed the Manager gets involved and tries to make it right, not her. Will never every go back......

We have eaten here several times and keep coming back. The food is very well prepared and presented and the service is wonderful. It's a perfect place to come for a special occasion.

Went to the restaurant last week pricey but nice atmosphere. Meal horrible. Meatloaf with wild boar and elk meat. Everything was barely warm and tasteless. Took it home in a doggy bag and gave it to someone who will eat anything. He took a few bites and through it away. Asked why he did not give it to the dogs, and he said that he did'nt want to make them sick.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Keeter center. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the whole concept of the students working there. Very interesting evening. Will go back the next time in Branson.

The Fish and Chips (local fresh caught trout)is my favorite lunch item. It would be very hard to choose a favorite dessert since they are all yummy! Dobyn's is very unique because College of the Ozarks students have a part in every area of the kitchen and restaurant. Talking with the student servers and looking out the wall windows overlooking the campus makes this a memorable dining experience.

More tourists should discover this wonderful restaurant run by students at College of the Ozarks. The setting is beautiful, the servers pleasant, and the food surprisingly good and attractively presented. Prices are moderate. No alcohol, but you don't need it in such a refreshing atmosphere.

A wonderful experience. We have eaten here several times and it is always good. If you go in the evening, it is very helpful to make reservations. It is nice that it is located outside of Branson and easy to get to. Parking is no problem.
