    Separate gluten free menu with lots of options including gluten free bread and dessert. The strip steak and potatoes were delicious and the service was great!

    They are so so good and careful and they have absolutely no problem serving celiacs. They're so nice and understanding about it too. I love this place

    I was here for Sunday brunch which was fabulous! It is a huge buffet, with selections clearly labeled as gluten free, sugar free, etc. Everything I ate was fresh and delicious! The best part of the meal for me were the numerous, again, clearly marked, choices on the dessert portion of the buffet! There seemed to be more gluten free choices than non-gluten free! Everything was delightful from the atmosphere to the attentiveness of our delightful waitress, Miranda! I will come back for that brunch anytime I am back in Branson!

    Staff was very knowledgeable and everything is clearly marked. Several dessert options as well. The cherry cake is AMAZING! Enjoy a piece for me when you go.

    Our experience was a big letdown. No manager or chef came by to clarify my needs or to advise on the menu. Instead they had the waiter go back and ask on a dish by dish basis which took about 40 minutes. In the end I was given an option of two salads and a few sandwich meats. I did appreciate the gluten free roll brought out in the beginning. And super loved a gluten free meringue dessert as an option. But the meal, options presented, and the way the info was given was not so great. Hopefully we caught them on an off day. Great place w a purpose.

    they take cross contamination seriously, the only drawback is upon entering, scents from bread did start aggravating my asthma. Gf burgers were great! no fries, though.

    This is by far the best restaurant offering gluten free that I've visited. All staff are trained well - hostess, wait staff, kitchen staff. As the best options were explained to me, I was also told the chef would try to alter any entree to meet my food restrictions. They also offer gf bread service. It was so good I panicked thinking they made a mistake. I recently bought tickets to their Honor America celebration which includes a BBQ buffet. I didn't plan to eat anything, but they called to tell me that the kitchen would preparing a gf dinner for me that would include bread, pastries, and a dessert! The buffet is elaborate, so I know how much effort it will take to do this for me. I can't say enough about Keeter Center. If you are in Branson area, please support them and enjoy a safe meal.

    Staff listened and were very accommodating. Ordered a hamburger on a gluten free bun and a bowl of fresh fruit for the side dish. My 5 year old daughter LOVED it! I tasted her burger and it was one of the best burgers and gluten free buns I have ever tasted! My daughter usually doesn't eat very much food at dinner time, but she inhaled this meal. Definitely eating here again!

    What a wonderful experience. My diet is gluten free, dairy free and soy free. The chef modified a dish on the menu that I was interested in having for dinner, and met all three of my dietary challenges. The food tasted great (which is unusual when we eat out with the restrictions I require. I typically receive very bland and unappetizing food) and I had plenty to eat. Our server was very patient and accommodating to our family. We would return to this establishment and eat again.

    We've eaten gluten free here twice now, and both times I think we had a burger with their gluten free bun. It was delicious. They even had some gluten free muffins in their bakery case and they were wrapped in cellophane to avoid cross contamination. The top bun for my burger was not placed on the hamburger so I asked for some apple butter (one of their specialties) to eat it like a roll. I am so impressed that the students here are receiving some training in allergen free dining. It definitely bodes well for the future!

    Very good salmon, but for the price they offered no side or baked potato. They serve a loaf if bread with homemade apple butter, so it would have been nice to offer a gluten free bread for the price.

    Not a specific GF menu, but knowledgeable staff. Great GF bun with sandwich, excellent soup and dessert.
