"Direct relation between price and quality"
Normal you get what you pay for, but not with this joint!
They started out years ago with great seafood, great price and great service. But, as the price as gone up over the years you would have expected to get a better experience. But the inverse is reality here, the quality has dropped considerably as the years have passed and the price has increased.
Sad this place is going the way of the Dodo ......... extinct.

"I love to eat here. We go every year for my Birthday."
I love their food. I do wish they'd advertise when they are closed though. The first time we drive 2 hours to get there only to find out they were closed. No its not high class grilled lobster but neither is the price. Try eating 5 lobsters and 3 lbs of crab legs for $39.99 anywhere else. Sometimes the cooks are better than others.

lobster and crab legs were good (says my husband), everything else was disgusting. We went right after opening and the food looked like it was from two nights before. They advertise soups salads and veggies lol!!! No really this is a joke, there was hard brown mashed potatoes and some disgusting looking green beans and corn on the cob. Dessert bar...joke. Three desserts and they all were freezer burnt tasting. I can't believe the health department hasn't shut the doors in this place!

"We Love It!"
We thought the food was good, especially the crab legs. Our server demonstrated how to eat a whole lobster, even though I told her I watched a video on YouTube.

Spent 83 dollars plus tip and only took 3 bites the lobster was so bad i tried to rid the taste off of my tongue with a crab leg big mistake cause the only thing left was my soup which prob had been made a month ago! Absolutely awful! The waiter asked if we wanted a to go box when we refused to take that slop home she just dropped our bill and walked away! I will never go to another restraunt without checking reviews! This place is an awful rip off!!

"wouldn't go back if starving to death"
Walked in was asked to seat ourselves. And was told to help ourselves to the buffet. And hostest would come and take drink order. Sat there 5 min. Before. Server came longer. Till ice tea drinks came. The food was horrible. Service was worse. The we noticed there were no menus or food prices listed or shown anywhere. Then when we decide to leave. Bill price was for two people. $99.50 for food thats not even good enough for a hyena. Was very disturbing to be treated this way. Signed. Geno C Bananzia.

"A standing joke"
Went to Branson to play a little Spring golf. Three of us wanted to stop because we all love lobster. BIG MISTAKE--The atmosphere was a bland as the food. The place looked dirty and the lobster was nearly inedible. I did like the catfish but little else. I can think of no reason to ever return except to point out the worst ever seafood. This is definely a place to stay away from.

"If love the taste of lobster and crab... Not too bad"
Yup! Someone said it before... Lobster was a little tough but tasted great. The crab however was flaky and delicious. I also enjoyed the cran cakes and the clams and hush puppies. Corn bread good too. Not fancy here nor gourmet, but if you want all the crab and lobster you can eat it is not a bad deal.

We have gone to Whipper Snappers everytime we go to Branson and look forward to it. We were there in September and found it had moved to a new location. We were so surprised to see how few people were there!! We have never had a bad meal there and the atmosphere is so casual and everyone sits there visiting from one table to another. We had asked at our hotel for the location of the restaurant and was told that they had not gotten good reviews on the restaurant and we were stunned but went any way, it was one of the reasons for going to Branson was to eat at Whipper Snappers, that is how much we enjoy their food!! We were not disappointed, only that more visitors were not there enjoying this fabulous buffet, you can find a $2 coupon in most of the maps and magazines there, but considering what you get on the buffet, lobster, crap legs, several types of shrimp, etc it is worth the money. There was another couple there also from Oklahoma that goes to Branson for the pure enjoyment of eating at Whipper Snappers. So I recommend it very highly and encourage you not to miss Whipper Snappers if you like seafood!!!! It is the BEST!!!!!

ANYONE WINTER TRAVELING..Be sure you know that Whipper Snappers is CLOSED Dec 12, 10 to March 2011. So if you are planning a seafood buffet when you get to Branson before March, your only choice in winter is Starvin Marvins....and the crab legs were cold even when brought "fresh from the kitchen" (more on that in Their review) We got to Branson this weekend. Grabbed coupon books and set off to find eating establishments (via surfin net) EVERYONE of the books advertises Whipper Snappers more than once. Not anywhere does it show closed for winter. Good job guys.
