Service was great, salad was not cold or fresh and over dressed. Steak had great flavor except ordered medium and got it well+, not even close to medium. Very disappointing and can recommend.

We ate smoked prime rib for the first time ever here, and it was melt in your mouth delicious. It's a little pricey, but worth it especially if you are celebrating a special occasion. The service was excellent too!

We brought our friends to Big Cedar and had a wonderful dinner at Devils Pool. The pork chops were great and try the trout for a wonderful meal.

We enjoyed an outstanding breakfast buffet for $16 - the meal included made to order omelets, fresh ham, bacon, eggs, wonderful fresh fruit, and fresh rolls. The setting overlooking Table Rock Lake can't be beat. The building is a beautiful cabin from the 1920's. Service...More

The food similar to Buzzard Bar downstairs but good selection. Great service and plenty of food. You will not be comfortable if you mind trophy animals on the walls. Very manly setting.

Come join us for a casual dining experience that combines the best of southern home-style fare with the rustic elegance of a century-old log structure, steeped in history as rich as the sumptuous desserts prepared by our chefs. There is no mystery as to what attracted entrepreneur Jude Simmons to this slice of Ozarks wilderness. The gentle hillsides were an ideal backdrop for his rustic getaway that would reflect the grandeur of Adirondack lodges and entertain in casual elegance. The home featured native materials, including a huge stone fireplace that still warms our dining room when fall and winter chill the air. Today, hand-wrought metal chandeliers cast a warm glow over antique furnishings and our 100-year-old mahogany bar. Bark covered logs and exposed rafters are a fitting complement to the sporting gear and animal mounts that adorn our walls in the Bass Pro tradition. Outdoor balcony seating is an option as weather permits.
