"Trouble at Tablerock"

Overview

Quote:
The "Kirby Van Birch" magic show was fabulous. There were four adults and three children ages 10 and 14. We all loved the show. The magic mixed with comedy was fun for all! We also toured "Talking Rock Caverns". It was a fun and educational tour for a rainy day at the lake. We all enjoyed it! One more thing that is a hidden secret near Branson is the College of the Ozarks, which has a fabulous museum with the actual Beverly Hillbillies truck!

For a family this is a great place to eat. It is a buffet with everything from pizza to seafood. You can also order off the menu from hamburgers to steaks. The food bar is always fresh (you have to try the rolls) and the kids love the ice cream bar. Look in some of the Branson coupon books (found at your hotel or timeshare) for a 15% off coupon.

NO FISH IN THIS LAKE! To be fair though, the weather was bad. We did catch several nice size bluegill off the dock! The kids enjoyed that! It seems that you really need to know where the good spots are. The locals are a good source of information!
