Chesters closed

I just got all excited about eating at Chesters and they have now closed. There is a sign on the door saying they have closed and that they appreciate the last 3 years. Anyone know what's going on??

Plus they were in there sweeping the floor so they must have been open earlier today.

Wow! That is hard to believe. They seemed to have a steady clientele and their prices weren't cheap. I'm surprised they couldn't make a go of it. On the other hand, I wondered if this was coming when they moved to a far smaller location. They were a restaurant that was uniquely Branson and uniquely GOOD! They will certainly be missed.

Wow! They were the number 1 rated restaurant on Tripadvisor plus the busy season is just starting. I really hate to see them go... we were planning on eating there again on our next trip in May.

I hope they consider reopening sometime soon. They were some of the best food in Branson!!

I will certainly miss their great reubens, their delicious hamburgers and their new macaroni and cheese chicken pesto that I thought was marvelous.

However, on about our third or fourth time ever going in Chester's, we ceased being customer and restaurant owner and became friends. So, while I will miss the great food they served, I will always have their friendship...............and, that means much more to both of us.

Thanks Jeremy, Chester and the entire staff for all the great meals. When people talk about the great restaurants that have been in Branson, your name will be at the top of the list.

I am praying that they are looking for a new location, with more seating, and the ability to have fried spinach and breakfast once again.

We will miss you Perry, Jeramy, and Marge!

Someone needs to be there for Zach tonight. First Deno's Fried Pies, and now this. I don't think he can take much more.

Although I'll admit that I know very little about running a business, this seems like a very unusual time of the year to close. I wonder if they had problems with their lease or any of the services that were provided by the owner of their location. Since they relocated once, perhaps they will again.

I am sorry for those who loved Chester's and I hope they will reopen in time, I really think them being pushed out of the old spot hurt them, cutting the menu etc..and the location was kind of hard to see, even being on the strip. Good Luck to those who are now without jobs..hope maybe they will find another place to open with full menu..

I agree. We will miss it. Hope they open again in a better venue.
