Eat there twice during our vacation last week. Menu was large, food was great, prices were very affordable. Just one part of an unbelievable resort destination. Johnny Morris does it right or not at all.

After a long day of airports and driving, this restaurant was great. Good food and good service-and just a hop skip and jump back to our cabin.

Our group of 11 plus two infants had Sunday brunch. Food was delicious, service was excellent and the mimosa's never stopped flowing. Had a great mix of breakfast, lunch and dessert items.

Only had one meal here, breakfast on our way out of town. It was a really good breakfast and our server was excellent.

I was only here briefly, but it was a lovely area, perfect for a casual lunch! I had a really good lemonade drink from the bar area.

Avery J, Thank you for visiting us at the Devil's Pool restaurant and Buzzard Bar. A casual lunch on the patio during the summer or by the fire place in the winter is the perfect relaxing experience.

It’s a bar and restaurant overlooking a pool with distant views and patio. Really a nice place for lunch or casual sunset dinner.

Description
Come join us for a casual dining experience that combines the best of southern home-style fare with the rustic elegance of a century-old log structure, steeped in history as rich as the sumptuous desserts prepared by our chefs. There is no mystery as to what attracted entrepreneur Jude Simmons to this slice of Ozarks wilderness. The gentle hillsides were an ideal backdrop for his rustic getaway that would reflect the grandeur of Adirondack lodges and entertain in casual elegance. The home featured native materials, including a huge stone fireplace that still warms our dining room when fall and winter chill the air. Today, hand-wrought metal chandeliers cast a warm glow over antique furnishings and our 100-year-old mahogany bar. Bark covered logs and exposed rafters are a fitting complement to the sporting gear and animal mounts that adorn our walls in the Bass Pro tradition. Outdoor balcony seating is an option as weather permits.
