Located on the second floor of the Hyatt Regency Crown Center hotel and just above the Main Lobby, the Terrace Restaurant was a nice place to have a bite to eat in the morning before my meetings started. Because there were always other delegates already seated here and there, it was possible to just join them without waiting in the official line-up for seating.
Favorite Dish: Although their buffet service provided for a full cooked breakfast, I kept things light with meusli, fresh fruit and yoghurt as well as a cup of coffee. Even with this meagre fare, the price came to US$12 with a tip! Still, there were plenty of choices available and the service was efficient.
While staying at a Time Share near Branson, Missouri, Allan and I were driving around the area and saw a sign that readZOEY'S MEDITERRANEAN CUISINE, so we stopped to investigate. It was not open, but the menu was posted, and we could look inside. It was very elegant inside and the menu was excellent. When we returned to our Time Share, we called and made reservations for that night. We were going to one of the shows in Branson at eight so we made reservations for six.
We were startled to see such a fine restaurant out about ten miles from Branson.
We discovered that it is a family-owned and operated restaurant which serves authentic Greek food. There were fresh flowers on the tables, candle light, divine food, excellent service, and elegant ambience.
Favorite Dish: Allan loves lamb, so he ordered leg of lamb, which was tender and delicious with all the trimmings. We both had great Greek salads and shared a dessert. The wine list was extensive, and we enjoyed the one that we selected.
It was a lovely dinner; one to remember.
An old 1950's "walk-up kind of place" pretty well describes Ted Drewes Frozen Custard in St. Louis. It's been a favorite in St. Louis since 1929 (Ted's father started it).
The shakes are so thick that it is called "concrete" and will probably be served to you by a server who wears a hard hat and holds the shake upside down to prove how very thick it is.
You can relish the ice cream at Sara's Ice Cream & Antiques in Sainte Genevieve.
It, too, is an old fashioned kind of place with a soda fountain and incredibly friendly servers.
Favorite Dish: Favorite thing for me at Ted Drewes Frozen Custard is called "Foxtreat" made with custard, fudge sauce, raspberries, and macadamia nuts. YUM!
Favorite thing for me at Sara's Ice Cream & Antiques is the handmade Drumstick made with chocolate ice cream in a homemade waffle cone with chocolate fudge hardened all over the ice cream and pecans imbeded into the chocolate fudge! YUM!
Thirty years ago, my husband Allan and I visited Saint Louis and ate at Tony's Restaurant. Thirty years later, Jill and I ate at Tony's, but in a new location (and a better location, I might add). Allan and I had never stopped "raving" about the delicious food and incredible service. The second time around, the food was just as delicious and the service was as grand as I had remembered.
Reservations are a must.
Three people took care of Jill and I. Our every need was looked after. Everything on the menu is alcarte; the prices are steep, but after tasting the food, you'll understand why.
Favorite Dish: Jill ate Dover Sole in Lemon Sauce, a special salad, and a side order of Spinach. I ate a Filet Mignon in a wine sauce, the wonderful Tony's Salad, and a side order of spinach. The food was completed tableside. All of the food was perfect. We finished the meal by splitting a decadent chocolate dessert and a rich, steaming-hot cup of coffee. Tony's Restaurant is fine dining at its best.
One great thing about visiting St. Louis is the many great Italian restaurants on the section of town known as "the Hill."
I chose Bartolino's because it is a family restaurant that has been around for many years. The food was delicious. I had spaghetti. The sauce was as good or better than any Italian restaurant I have ever eaten before.
I'm envious of the people of St. Louis who can choose among many quality Italian restaurants.
Favorite Dish: spaghetti. The sauce was excellent.
Lamberts is a huge restaurant with food similar to the Cracker Barrell chain. The gimick for this restaurant is the waiters throw rolls to customers. This is fun for children who are suprised by the experience. Bring your appetite. The serving portions are generous. In fact, the Travel Channel television network had a show on the top 10 places to "pig out." Lambert's was voted number one.
Favorite Dish: My favorite thing about this restaurant is the waiters contstantly pass things around the table just like at home at Thanksgiving. You can take your pick of the pass arounds at no extra charge.
After floating the Current River we were hungry and ready to eat anywhere. We were suprised to find a nice restaurant with an old fashioned antique soda fountain and bakery. The items off the menu were also good.
Besides the restaurant, the owners have a general store adjoining the restaruant and the basement has a saloon with a century old bar.
Eminence is a sleepy town of 548 which boasts more canoes available for rent than people. Each year, 1.5 million canoeists, campers, fishermen, hikers, hunters, and horseback riders come through Eminence to take advantage of the natural clear flowing Current and Jacks Fork rivers.
Favorite Dish: The old fashioned ice cream soda tasted especially great after a day of floating on the Current River.
You must stop in either Sikeston or Ozark, Missouri and have a delicious hot meal at LAMBERTS restaurant where they are known for throwing hot rolls at the customers. I know this sounds strange, but believe me the atmosphere is fun and those rolls are the BEST I have ever tasted! The waiters and waitresses also go around filling your plates with other hot foods if you want more. It's an all-you-can-eat sort of place, but they come to your table and bring you all the food you can eat.
Favorite Dish: chicken fried steak
Not a restaurant but we did the last tour of the day and then went to eat after.--one hour tour and winetasting with a group of tourists who you don't know at the beginning but due to the sipping of the various wines you definitly know at the end.They are generous on the amount they let you try.it was a fun time and we ended up buying several bottles(I wonder why?)
Favorite Dish: The WINE--
The whole area specializes in good home cooking featuring catfish,okra,baked beans,ham and more.There are a lot of buffets restaurants-many at the motels and inns.
Favorite Dish: NOT CATFISH-must have been caught in the local lake--it tasted musty-BUT--I like the ham ,okra and smashed potatoes
Take a 2 hour cruise on the lake--eat dinner and see a show while eating.This is a 1800's paddlewheel--open summer months only.We enjoyed it very much but really did not have enough time to eat ,see the show and view the lake from the deck.
Favorite Dish: I don't remember the food but it was good.
This is our favorite as we are are heading into Branson-the food is Ozark cooking and it is so popular there is often an hour wait to get in but worth it The waiters come around with large pots of southern dishes such as Okra>Blackstrap molasses baked beans and smashed potatoes.Your meal is served in cast iron frying pans and boy is it good.They come around with melt in your mouth rolls and throw them at you across the room.
Favorite Dish: The throwed rolls of course.
'Old Town' St. Charles has many restaurants; my favorite is Tony's. Great food cheap.
friendly (most everybody who works there is related)
Favorite Dish: Steak Anthony: steak smothered in mushrooms, onions, cheese and 'steak butter'!
Zen is nouveau and romantic...the chef named it after his favorite wine (guess)
Saigon 39 is Vietnamese and owned by the family of a close friend of mine, but that is not why i suggest it!
Favorite Dish: Zen - Sea Bass and Lentils
Saigon 39 - the spring rolls!!
THERE ARE MANY GOOD RESTAURANTS IN BRANSON. MY HUSBAND LIKES THE TATER PATCH IN SILVER DOLLAR CITY. HIS FAVORITE FOOD THERE IS THE CALICO POTATOES. YOU CAN GO TO A DIFFERENT RESTAURANT FOR EVERY MEAL AND NOT EAT AT THE SAME PLACE TWICE.
Favorite Dish: THERE ARE TWO MANY FOODS TO CHOOSE FROM : EVERYTHING FROM CHINESE TO ITALIAN TO HOME COOKING TO FAST FOOD. THERE ARE BUFFETS WITH A VARIETY OF FOODS SO IN A GROUP OF PEOPLE EVERY ONE CAN GET WHAT THEY WANT.
