We ate dinner here one night while staying at the Keeter Center. Overall the meal was very good. The pork mac n cheese was delicious. Very good service from the student-operated restaurant.

Great place to dine, remember to make a reservation. Some of the foods are raised/grown on campus. The students work the restaurant and have interesting stories to tell about themselves and the college.

We had lunch at the Dobyns Dining Room and everything was perfect! Our waitress was one of the best we ever had and was so friendly. Next time we are in Branson visiting we will be sure to visit Dobyns again.
