We live in southern Missouri, and unfortunately, we could never find a lot of choices for a nice dining experience in our area. This morning, that all changed today with the brunch at Gaston's. We went there with mixed emotions, but all was excellent from the minute we drove through by the "welcome" sign. Went into the restaurant and we... More

A beautiful restaurant sitting over the White River. It is just a step below fine dining. As a beautiful buffet on Sundays. The restaurant is quite full of antique bicycles, boat motors, etc.

Expensive! An interesting place to visit with a beautiful view. Think about going elsewhere unless you're up for paying a lot for all the mediocre food you can eat.

Susie, we appreciate that you gave us a review. It looks like you visited our restaurant during April of 2016. During March of 2016, we had a change in the management of the restaurant, so it has taken some time for the new manager/chef to get things worked out. Since then there have been many changes to improve the quality... More

We had lunch and dinner here. Both were really good. Dinner was great with Chef Rick visiting tables and chatting with diners. He answered any questions you might have. I had the Pork Osso Bucco, my first, and it melted in my mouth. It was very flavorful with the perfect amount of seasonings. The salad bar is huge. We also... More

Wonderful views, incredible quiet for so many people being there. Good hiking rails. Don't go to the restaurant, however. Big disappointment. Food undercooked and definitely underwhelming. Had to send my steak back and it was returned in the same, sorry raw condition. Staff were friendly and kind. Unexpected charges: If you are in a cabin and want clean towels, that... More

We were staying at Gastons and had to try the restaurant, I see the specials posted all the time and it always looks delicious. Great room overlooking the river and hundreds of cool old tools and outboard motors hanging everywhere! We had the Prime Rib and it was perfection, potato cooked just right and a amazing salad boat!

Great restaurant and Clint has busted his tail to keep the Gaston's legacy in tact after JIm's passing. We had lunch there on a Sunday drive and the restaurant was wonderful Food was good!
