Don't remember exactly, but Grand Country is under twenty bucks for their amazing buffet. Real turkey, not some glued together turkey roll like big chains. All the sides taste like they came out of grandma's kitchen. Of course pumpkin pie, but other dessert choices as well. Including their pecan cobler!
The line gets long, very long, but it moves quite quickly. Never been much more than 45 minutes from door to table with the line going all the way to the fudge shop, and back to the door.
I think this will be our sixth, or seventh year for a Thanksgiving feast at Grand Country Buffet. When you find perfection, why look anywhere else?

Thanks so much ! !
We began doing Thanksgiving in Branson maybe 15 years ago, maybe longer than that, it is a great time to be there, unless a last second change happens we won't be there this year, but I wouldn't want to go anywhere but Grand Country.

The line is long, our longest wait was a few years ago of about an hour and a half. My suggestion go real early around 9:45 - 10 get in line or wait till mid afternoon. Another suggestion don't spend all day driving around front looking for parking, go around to the back, lot of parking nobody ever uses.

We did Thanksgiving one year in Branson, and had an amazing meal/brunch at the Keeter Center. Was different being in Branson and not with family on Thanksgiving, but FUN!!

We arrived late one Thanksgiving day and weren't in the mood for a big meal, went to McFarlains and got something besides the Holiday meal but I saw them bringing them out to folks, very large plates of food, 15.99 don't sound bad at all price wise.

Why?
For a few cents more Grand Country has turkey and ham, and roast beef, and fried fish. Salad bar, fresh fruit, dressing, mashed taters, sweet potato casserole, green beans, and, and, and, and. Plus an assortment of fresh baked rolls. Pumpkin pie, pecan cobler, blackberry cobler ice cream.
And it's all like it just came from grandma's kitchen!

We are doing that for the first time this year, eating there on Thanksgiving. It should be a real treat.

At that time, they had a huge and amazing setup for the meal. A lot of selections and the desserts were outstanding.

We ate at Grand Country several years and then tried Branson Center Stage in 2016. They were both good but preferred Branson Center Stage due to not being able to stand long periods of time. Last year we decided to try Grand Plaza. Loved it! 11:00 am reservation, walked right in, sat down, ordered our beverage and went and filled our plates. White tablecloths, cloth napkins, candles (battery operated so they were safe) beautiful view and delicious view! Guess where we are going this year! Lol!
