We can tell a lot about a breakfast restaurant by the toast they serve. The toast at Devils Pool was amazing. It’s home-made, thick sliced served with whipped butter and jelly. The omelet was wonderful too. The building itself is very interesting with fireplaces scattered...More

We enjoyed lunch on a rainy day. A sunny day you may be able to use the patio with the nice view. We had hamburgers. The food was served hot and large servings.

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.
