What to Eat in Branson

Most of the dining in Branson has a similar theme to the rest of the city: family-friendly. If you don't plan on packing your own picnic while at Silver Dollar City, take the family to Molly's Mill in the park on Main Street, which has been serving a hearty buffet for more than four decades.. Billy Bob's Dairyland earns great reviews for its diner fare, milkshakes and homemade pies, and the Keeter Center – located on the College of the Ozarks campus – receives high marks for its delicious, locally sourced menu (many of the ingredients are grown right on campus). When you and your taste buds are ready for something a bit more adventurous, try India Clay Oven – a favorite among recent visitors.

And if you're looking for something a bit more sophisticated, plan a daytrip to Mount Pleasant Winery for a light lunch and wine tasting. If you're flying in or out of the St. Louis airport, this may be a good first or last stop since the winery is located about 50 miles west of St. Louis. If you're coming from Branson, expect the drive to take you nearly four hours.
