This restaurant has a very beautiful view and the food is OK too. I think they could have a lot better food but it's probably the best you will get in the area. Service was good except for the hostess was really slow in seating us. She had many other things she seem like she was attending too. They have a nice salad bar here And I did enjoy my Club sandwich.

Thank Jon M

We live in southern Missouri, and unfortunately, we could never find a lot of choices for a nice dining experience in our area. This morning, that all changed today with the brunch at Gaston's. We went there with mixed emotions, but all was excellent from the minute we drove through by the "welcome" sign. Went into the restaurant and we were treated exactly as I would have expected from an establishment like this--treated as welcome customers who are paying the bills! We were a little early, so waited for buffet to get put out, and then in a short time we were seated so we could overlook the river--very nice. The waitress was working for only her third day, and her first brunch Sunday, however, she was very polite, friendly and attentive. Now--the food. Have been in lots of buffets, literally all over the world, and this was one of the best! The sausage was tasty, the bacon cooked crispy, and the fresh fruit was really good. Tried some of the fried fish filets and they were delicious. I have NEVER seen eggs benedict on a buffet before, so was hesitant to try them, but am I glad I did. My wife, who is not as big an eater as I am, had seconds on those eggs! We also tried the quiche, which was very, very good. For a dessert, they had several choices and we both had the Boston cream pie which was almost (not quite) as good as the one the wife makes from scratch at home. We were both immensely pleased with the food, the service and the facility. We now know that we have a great dining experience we can have at any time, and we will certainly be taking advantage of it in the future. Can't wait to try evening meals!

A beautiful restaurant sitting over the White River. It is just a step below fine dining. As a beautiful buffet on Sundays. The restaurant is quite full of antique bicycles, boat motors, etc.

Expensive! An interesting place to visit with a beautiful view. Think about going elsewhere unless you're up for paying a lot for all the mediocre food you can eat.

Susie, we appreciate that you gave us a review. It looks like you visited our restaurant during April of 2016. During March of 2016, we had a change in the management of the restaurant, so it has taken some time for the new manager/chef to get things worked out. Since then there have been many changes to improve the quality of restaurant. We suggest that you give us another shot in 2017, as we are confident you will notice a significant change from your last visit. Again, thank you for taking the time to post a review, and we hope that you have a wonderful day.
