Hotel | "Grandvista Cedar Woods Resort"

Quote:
Best Things Nearby:All the shows. Close to everything, but not right in the middle of all the traffic.Best Things About the Resort:It's quiet. The rooms are large and well furnished. The front desk does a great job helping you get tickets to any show you want, always great seats.Resort Experience:We stayed at the Cedar Ridge Resort the first week of May in a two-bedroom lockout. Basically, we were happy with the resort. There were a few minor things we found odd. There are two doors leading into the master bedroom, one from the living room and one from the bathroom.

B. T. Bones Branson Steakhouse

Restaurant | "B T Bones"

We were told this was a great place for steaks and it was! They were melt-in-your-mouth good!

The only thing we found distracting was the live entertainment -- it was very good, but very loud, and we had a hard time talking to each other from across the table! The wait staff left a little to be desired also. We didn't go back.

Outback Steak & Oyster Bar

Restaurant | "Outback Steakhouse"

Quote:
This is not one of the chain Outbacks. I had read a lot about this place and was looking forward to going. What a disappointment!! The service was fast, but the steaks were nothing to brag about. We felt like we were in a fast food steakhouse. It was not really the way we wanted to spend our last night in Branson. We found the prices rather high for the amount of food and quality. We would not bother going to again.

We took a tour on one of the rainy days we were in Branson -- very impressive. We really enjoyed the gentleman that did the tours. We bought several bottles home with us. There was not a lot of walking and the tour only takes about 45 minutes.

Yakov Smirnoff Theatre

Attraction | "Yakov Smirnoff"

Quote:
This is probably the best show we saw while in Branson. He is one of the best entertainers around. By the end of his show, the audience had laughed and cried. We were very impressed with his love of this country. Everyone should see this show!
