The weather is turning colder, and our to-do lists are never ending. that’s right, the holiday season is upon us and we can easily get overwhelmed. From checking off that shopping list, keeping the kids entertained and more, it would be great if there was one place you go when the weather takes a turn for the worse and keep everyone happy. Luckily, if you are in Branson, you can easily head to the Branson IMAX Complex for a fun day with the family, some shopping, the latest movies and even free entertainment.
McFarlain’s – Home Cooking, Rising Tables and Apple Cobbler
Down home cooking, rustic interiors and friendly staff are only a few things you can find at McFarlain’s Restaurant. The casual dining restaurant brings fun to your meal. The main entrance is in the middle of the Branson IMAX Complex and offers a country store right at the entrance. With a country feel, your meal will be fresh, warm and they can accommodate different dietary needs.
Get some roast beef, a chicken sandwich, soup or even some apple cobbler for a quick meal. The restaurant space sits guests on two levels, but throughout the space there are hidden tables that will slowly rise while their guests enjoy their meal. The table moves so slowly they may not notice until their plates are almost at their nose. And the only way to get their table back to a normal height is to sing a song and join the rising table club!
