"Branson - Christmas on the Trail Dinner Show"
February, 2018
Loved, Loved!!! this show. Booking the show was easy and picking up the tickets was a great experience. The people were very helpful. When we arrived at the show, I was so excited to see the set up. The music started and the food was served, i felt like I was on a cattle drive!!! Everyone was great, the performers, servers, the gift shop employees! The food, THE FOOD, was fantastic! It was an amazing experience. We left the show and went on the Trail of Lights, so enjoyable and relaxing. Lastly we went to the top of Inspiration Tower. Although it was night and visibility was limited it was very calming to look out and see all the lights of Branson. We will be back! It was a wonderful experience!

The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. The musician/performers were also excellent. I prefer the acoustic instrumentation and the smaller, more intimate setting. Being a music educator, I recognize and applaud the talent we enjoyed.

We went to Christmas on the Trail in November 2017, every one and everything was great. The food was excellent and the entertainment was superb. We would defiantly go again. Our server was very attentive. Our seats were wonderful, not a bad seat in the house.

We were stuffed! The reviews on the food are spot on! Our server-Annabelle- was amazing. Served everyone quickly and with a smile. She never showed frustration as she literally ran from the trough to our tables! The food was hot and scrumptious! Even took a doggie bag home! The show was entertaining and brought back memories of the true meaning of Christmas. As a Branson tradition- they recognized Our Veterans🇺🇸! I tear up at this every time- well deserved. Wonderful evening with the family. The Trail of Lights were beautiful and quite unique. An end of the evening bonus was Hot Cocoa after the lights! One note I would add- dress warm as the weather was quite cold and the tram and bathrooms take some time.

First off we were almost an hour late. 76 Was backed up from Shepard of the Hills blvd on out from people going to see the lights at SDC. We called at about 10 after and they said they had heard there was a back up and insured us they hadn't started the show yet because of that, and that although they were going to start the show soon to come on out and they would make sure we got fed. Well that they did and while I am certain we missed some of the show what we did see was very entertaining. They served up a great chuck wagon style meal that was still hot for us. Wit ham and beans, a slab of ham, seasoned potatoes, corn bread and apple cobbler for desert. The hospitality was great, as it is on most occasions in Branson. This place is warm at heart. I highly recommend this when you come to town.

Christmas on the Trail Chuckwagon Dinner Show was a wonderful experience. The cowboy prayer brought tears to my eyes. The songs brought back memories of happy times. The two miles of Christmas lights were a wonder to see. A truly American experience filled with many blessings.
