"Never got waited on. We got seated and waited 20 minutes."
1st time in Branson. We decided to try this restaurant. We liked what was on the menu. The hostess seated us but a server never came to take our order. There was servers sitting at tables with their electronic devices and eating. Finally we said enough was enough and went to Fuddruckers and had a great meal.

We was there last October 7,2017 for the Gordy and Debbie singers. We enjoy the meal a lot food was great. And the show was super. They came out before they got on stage and talk with the people and then during the break the sold CD and took picture with people and sign them. And at the end the came by the door and thank everyone for coming. That was our 1st time to Branson and plan to come back again in March 2017 and Again in October 2017. Hope to see the show again in October.

"Went Back Twice in 6 hours!"
OK First we loved Cheryl and is the best server ever. Had so much fun we came back later that day. Too bad it was our last day here or we would have been back many
times! We are not related to her nor paid to say this.

We were here 2 years ago for lunch and enjoyed it. This trip was just the opposite. The breakfast buffet was nothing more than the breakfast included with most motels now days. $26 for 2 adults and 1 six year old was not acceptable for the quality of food. Also, my husband is not impressed to have to ask for coffee several times before someone brings it.

Warning! Staff is very inappropriate! We ate here today and were shocked at the rude and disgusting behavior of the staff. The waitress asked the person behind us if they wanted a male or female brownie. Then clarified... "You know with or without nuts" Obviously this is BAD taste but horrible that my six year old son heard her! Next she followed by leaning her disgusting chest in front of my husband and son and saying "come on dont make me work for my tips. I'll take you out back and press my face against your car window and everything!" It doesn't matter to us that the manager gave us a free meal. That doesn't help that my six yr old witnessed this. WE will NEVER be back!!!!!!!!

My husband and I went to the Neal McCoy show and while we were there he was brought a shake and bragged on it. We were so intrigued we stopped by to check it out. We did not find a better place to eat breakfast for entertainment, value, service. We also ate lunch a few times and couldn't have found a better place. We have never ate dinner there but that is next of our trip.

This is a little jewel of a place about a block and a half off of the main strip.
We ate breakfast there on five mornings. Great value and good selection for such a small cafe. We also ate lunch there one day and had one dinner there. They also provide live music some mornings (Melissa Jean sang so early, and yet she belted out those songs like she was performing a late show on The Grand Ole Opry), some days at lunch (you've got to hear John Sager to believe what an awesome singer he is), and even a live show some nights (A George Strait perspective was playing while we were there but we did not get to see it due to having tickets for other shows the nights we were there). The entertainers were warm, friendly, and offered their CD's at more than reasonable prices. We have some great memories of this trip that will come alive whenever we play Melissa's or John's CD's.
The food was good and wholesome and the prices were extremely reasonable. The ENTIRE staff, from manager Dan to the wait staff, to the kitchen staff were amazing. You'd never know they were working at "jobs." They sure know how to make working fun.
The city's inspection unit gave Uptown a review as "the cleanest kitchen in Branson." The dining area is even cleaner. We had such a good time whenever we were there. Yes, a "good time" for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. If no one is singing when you are there, the wait and management staff stops by and chats. It's a happy, happy place!

Sorry to hear Anthony W. had a bad experience at the cafe in November 2008. I am the owner, having acquired the cafe in April 2008. During our first season as owners we undoubtedly made some mistakes, but we have worked hard to correct them. We believe we have the cleanest cafe in Branson, offer a very good value to our customers and have made staffing changes to ensure the service is friendly and the food is great. We added a stage to provide FREE live entertainment and feature some of branson's best entertainers, Gary Welch, Gordya and Debbie Wensel, and Karen Berka's live radio broadcast featuring entertainers from all the shows in Branson. It is true we service a large number of tour coaches each year and this is sometimes inconvenient for our walk in customers. We invite Anthony W. to try our cafe again on me when reopen for the 2010 season on March 12.
