Stopped at McFarlain's to stock up on jelly and pie. So we ordered the catfish special. Wow was the cornbread great! Split the catfish with the wife and also received a 10% discount.

We come here every year we are in Branson and in the past it hasn't been the past. This year the food and service was great! The pot roast is amazing and so filling. It is a great atmosphere with great people.
