We eat at this local restaurant 5-6 times a year. They have very good food with large portions. They carry specials through the week and we have never has a bad experience here. If you are in the Mark Twain Lake area, I highly recommend you try this place out !!

For starters, we were seated right next to a large, loud and obnoxious party in an otherwise empty restaurant. complained twice and all we got was "oh, sorry". We picked up all of our things and moved to a table as far away as possible. The food was flavorless. Wasted the money for this lunch decision. Wife ordered the special,... More

2 for lunch. She enjoyed the Chipotle Wrap. I had the "daily special" a grilled BBQ pork steak with fried potatoes, pork & beans, and slaw. The slaw was bland & dry. Everything else OK. Haven't been here for a while. NO more pizza on new menu.. New menu = higher prices.

Lunch was delicious with the turkey melt and one side dish and the pork tenderloin entree which came with two side dishes. All the sides were good--fresh fruit, sweet potato fries and steamed broccoli. There aren't' many other restaurants around for... More

We have eaten at this restaurant for over 20 years and the food has always been very good with nice sized portions. All the waitresses are very nice and friendly I highly recommend eating here when you're up at the lake.

We had 8 people (4 couples) in our party for breakfast this morning. We had to ask for spoons after we got coffee. The first half of our orders came out about 5 minutes ahead of the 2nd half. They forgot the eggs with the corned beef order. One gal asked for crispy hashbrowns and they came out as soft... More

I had not eaten at The Junction for years. Ordered the tenderloin sandwich and chose the sweet potato fries as the side. The tenderloin was not dinner plate size but it was enough for 2 buns. I just doubled it over, added the tomato, onion and pickles and couldn't open wide enough! It was very meaty, tender, and cooked just... More

Spur of the moment dinner. Husband had special 8 oz steak and crab legs, I had pound of crab legs. Good, not great. Crab legs were overcooked and the meat stuck to the shells. Nice, friendly staff. Enjoyable. Will be back. Husband had good dessert...caramel crumb cake.
