An exciting year is ahead for Branson and those who visit in 2020. Several all-new dining experiences are on the menu, and some very recognizable celebrity chefs like Paula Deen and Guy Fieri have set up shop in Branson.
Guy Fieri's Branson Kitchen + Bar
Boasting a great view of Lake Taneycomo from the Branson Landing, this 8,000 sq foot restaurant and bar features some Branson's best patio seating. Craft Beers and signature dishes such as Guy's famous Trash Can Nachos, are everything you didnt know you needed. If nachos aren’t your thing you can try his other interpretations of American Classics like the Bacon Mac N Cheese Burger or Bourbon Brown Sugar Wings, a selection of smoked meats and desserts. Many of his signature dishes he has paired with his own adult beverage. Surely that’s something food-loving American adult can get behind (Opening Summer 2020)
Paula Deen's Branson Family Kitchen
Everyone knows Paula Deen is famous for her Southern Georgia style cooking. Is Branson ready for that? We’re sure ready to try! Everything you’ve ever craved is on the menu. Biscuits and Gravy, homemade peach cobbler, and of course Sweet Tea. Even the thought makes you want Chicken Fried Steak and mashed potatoes. I’ll settle for a slice of pie and coffee though. Located at 545 Branson Landing Boulevard, slide on in for some delicious food for your belly and soul.
Drive-In and Carhops
Cakes N' Creams 50s Diner on the Country Boulevard "Strip" isn't new and was in fact fully renovated less than two years ago. But in light of the current pandemic, the restaurant has branched out into significant outdoor seating and has built a fully functional replica of a drive-in movie theater.
Carhops will bring food and drinks to cars and tables while attendees enjoy movies every evening at 9 p.m. and even a double-feature movie around 10:45 p.m. Cakes N' Creams is located on the Strip at 2805 W Country Blvd.
Longhorn Steak House
Just about everyone is familiar with the idea of Steak. Grilled beef is about as American as apple pie and football. But are you familiar with how Long Horn Steakhouse does grilled beef? If not, make plans to check this place out. The relaxed atmosphere is the closest you’ll get to sitting around a nightly campfire after a day of driving cattle along from the back of a horse. Modern life may not require us to work with livestock but who doesn’t want an ice cold beer and steak fresh from the grill after a long hard day?
Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers was founded in 1974 in Atlanta, Ga., but is new to Branson. The pizzaria serves up stone-baked pizzas in an eclectic, art-filled and family-friendly location. The eatery offers high-quality artisan pizzas with gourmet ingredients, and the menu includes other tasty items like handmade pretzels, calzones, wings and hoagies. Mellow Mushroom is located at 333 Branson Landing Blvd Branson on the Promenade.
Rivertown Smokehouse at Silver Dollar City
To celebrate the theme park's 60th anniversary in 2020, Silver Dollar City has opened the new Rivertown Smokehouse. The new barbecue restaurant is built on the waterfront of the new Rivertown district that greets visitors. The menu includes barbecue, chicken, sandwiches and kid's meals.
Rivertown Smokehouse is located inside Silver Dollar City and requires park admission to visit.
