"Dinner at the Keeter Center"

There was nothing about this experience that I didn't love. Everyone we came in contact was extremely friendly and helpful. The view from the dining room, facing west as the sun went down, was breathtaking. The live music from the piano was a nice touch. The service was top notch. Everything we ate was EXCELLENT! The smoked tomato soup, the garden salad, the bread all excellent. The pork chops could not have been better. Do yourself a favor and truly enjoy a night out at the Keeter Center.

This little hotel is top notch. The students from the college who work at this facility in return for an education are committed to doing it right, and they do! Small, clean, comfortably furnished, friendly and very accommodating. Not to forget the housemade cookies and milk from the school’s dairy that were in our room when we checked in!

"Dinner at the Keeter Center was WOW!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We had heard about the Keeter Center and decided to eat dinner there on our trip to Branson. We entered the lobby and spent time wondering through the gift shop and museum. We then entered the dining room and were impressed with the service. We were seated immediately and enjoyed the entertainment (man playing a piano) which was very good. Our server, Seth, was spot on. He made suggestions that were helpful and was there when needed. We both started with the side Caesar salads, which were wonderful! My friend ordered the pot roast (which came with mashed potatoes and vegetable) and I had the Cast Iron Quinoa (a small skillet of toasted quinoa topped with fresh veggies and a tomato sauce). Both were excellent!! We had already decided to try the ice cream shop out in the lobby, so skipped dessert. I really loved that our servers were college students, and they all seemed to enjoy their jobs. We had a great time and the food was perfection. I also like the fact that a lot of the food served comes right from their gardens! I'm looking forward to going here again.
