Inspired by the IMAX adventure Ozarks Legacy & Legend, McFarlain’s Family Restaurant is a Branson exclusive. This full-service restaurant, located inside the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex, is famous for its legendary Ozarks cuisine, homemade pies, unique atmosphere and entertaining hospitality!
Come hungry…McFarlain’s features hearty, cooked-to-order breakfasts possibly even Branson’s Best Country Breakfast, plus lunch and dinner entrees ranging from homemade soups, salads, sandwiches and their own special slow-cooked pot roast‚ liver and onions, chicken and steak. A popular lunch item, the McFarlain’s Special to be exact, is a heaping portion of that slow-cooked pot roast, atop good old white bread, topped with gravy and a side of luscious creamy mashed potatoes. It’s the epitome of comfort food and no one makes it better! Don’t forget about McFarlain’s Famous Honey Cornbread, Fried Green Tomatoes and scrumptious Cinnamon Rolls. They offer a special kids menu, too.
Save room for dessert because McFarlain’s has Branson’s largest selection of daily, made-from-scratch cobblers, fruit and creme pies, including the one-of-a-kind Branson Traffic Jam Pie made with cherries, strawberries, rhubarb and cranberries. That particular combination might not sound like something you are looking for, but you would just have to try it. It is just the right combination of sweet and tart and nothing like you have had anywhere else. If you have ever visited Branson then you will know exactly where this famous pie gets its name from.
The atmosphere is like going home with decorations from a ‘simpler time’ and black and white photos from the Branson Historical Society that highlights some of the people and scenery that inspired the tourist boom; look close and you may even recognize someone you know. You will feel like you are going home again and will be welcomed again and again – like family! Be sure to come see and taste it all inside Branson’s IMAX Entertainment Complex at McFarlain’s Family Restaurant.
