I was very pleased with the food and service at this restaurant. I had been staying in the area while hiking nearby trails. The night I ate here, the owner had just made a run to the gulf for fresh fish. Everything was very fresh and tasty. My waitress was very friendly and our food came out hot and fast.... More

I ate here twice for dinner since I was staying at the inn next door. Both times I found the food and service were very poor. I had the filet on the first night, ordered medium rare and received it well done. The second night I ordered the BBQ platter, and the chicken was cold. It didn't help that several... More

We will definitely make it a point to stop here again when we are in southern Missouri. The food was excellent, especially the home made pies!

OK - so we've been there a couple of times - 3 to be exact. Each time we're met with POOR service and mediocre food. I'll give the BBQ pork a 4 out of 5 but when you couple that with the poor service, I'll pass. In fact I've had opportunities to go with my mom and dad and quite... More

We went here for dinner. The place is very clean and for a week night pretty busy. Our waitress Jessika (yes, I spelled it correctly) was fantastic. We ordered BBQ sandwiches and Cole slaw as the side. The BBQ was really god. I loved the Cole slaw as I favor the vinegar kind. So be prepared for that style of... More

We were staying at the motel behind the restaurant and the owners of the motel recommended this restaurant. We weren't overly hungry so we ordered the Big T, which was a large baked potato with a choice of beef or pork. The Big T hit the spot for us and was the perfect size dinner. The potato was great, the... More

Baylee Jo's signature pulled pork is pretty good stuff, although their BBQ sauces don't taste much different from each other. The pie is an excellent choice here unless you only take it with coffee - the coffee was supposedly fresh but pretty poor in the taste department.

We are huge fans of barbecue, but are also very picky about it. The pork steak here was enormous, tender, meaty, lean and cooked to perfection. The baby back ribs were perfect without a lot of fat on them and so flavorful. Loved the homemade signature sugar free/salt free salad dressing and all the sides were exceptionally good. We wish...
