Went to the landing to walk around and decided to go for dinner. Our table faced the lake and the activities happening. Food was awesome and the cornbread was to die for!!! Service was great as well!

We decided to walk along the lake walk & came across this restaurant & asked for a menu, we were sold. We got the Wahoo dip as an appetizer & I had the alligator tail & my friend had the flash fried crawfish. Everything was excellent. I would definitely recommend this place & would come back if I was ever... More

After many years and trips to Branson we finally decided to eat here and will return on the next trip. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and service.

This is a part of the Bass Pro chain although it's not in the same building as the actual store. I'd say the food was pretty average. But I enjoyed looking over the water while I ate. Also we got in without any wait. I would recommend ordering the fried alligator. It was very good along with the sweet jalapeño... More

Reasonably priced and the food was very good. Most of us had the Fish & Chips. The tartar sauce was amazingly good...wish I could have taken some home! Atmosphere was very relaxed and the view was really nice even when seated inside. The Blackberry Cobbler was very very good. Note: If you're from Texas, they have the best sweet tea... More

The White River Fish House is known for its fish but I suggest the gator as an appetizer. Tastes like chicken but with a deeper flavor. I ordered the scallops & shrimp for my entree but found scallops were a tad sandy - could have been washed better. Not outstanding food, but wonderful environment.

Just finished having lunch here and it's your average fish house. The place has burgers, steaks and chicken for non fish lovers. The atmosphere is nice right on the water but the food was nothing to write home about. Keep searching if you want great food!

Get you some gator!!! They have the best gator ever!! The clam chowder was awesome, the fish not so much. I would go back again just for the gator and chowder!! PS get the fishbowl drink, it says it's for two but that is a single serving me at least for me (I'm a female) lol!!

Staff was great. Food was good. A bit expensive. The atmosphere was very nice and friendly. Had no wait and the salads were very fresh.

Thank Jan S
