There is endless food options in Branson. Many of them are good, but if you're like most people when traveling, you're looking for the locally owned restaurants off the main path. Located at the end of Commercial Street in Downtown Branson is a small locally owned restaurant started by two College of the Ozark Graduates. This restaurant offers a slower relaxed atmosphere focused on fresh food cooked to order. Their menu features breakfast all day, hand-breaded fried items, gigantic onion rings, and local steaks.

"First time trying Summit and we loved it! It’s a casual dining experience with reasonably-priced menu options and cooked-to-order fresh food." - Stacy (5 Star Google Review)
"This place was absolutely incredible!! Great service, and HUGE portions. Flavored mimosas, food for the the whole family, and the shortest breakfast wait in the whole downtown area." -Kelli (5 Star Google Review)
"MUST TRY! We visited on a Saturday morning when ALL the breakfast spots were madhouses with a looong wait. This spot had no wait because they are a New, up and coming restaurant owned by 2 young men who were phenomenal at ensuring we were treated like we were guests in their own home. The atmosphere was so relaxing. There were HEALTHY options along with other deliciously sinful options to kick-start our day." - Amber (5 Star Google Review)
"If you want to sneak just off the strip for a cool, trendy but relaxing meal, in a locally owned business, I highly recommend Summit Restaurant in Downtown Branson! I wish I had discovered it earlier. They have many, many delicious options but, this morning we went for brunch. Everyone was happy and friendly. Our server, Ellie H, bopped over to our table with a big smile and warm welcome. She answered all of our questions, gave advice on the menu choices and remained attentive during our meal. It was 11am and she informed us that everything on the menu was available to order and made fresh! We ordered the pancake breakfast which came with eggs, crispy hash browns and choice of breakfast meat (I selected bacon, of course!). We received 2 giant, fluffy sweet cream pancakes topped with fresh fruit (syrup on the side), and fluffy scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese (for a small upcharge). The bacon was cooked to perfection, done but chewy, with crisp edges for a satisfying crunch. The coffee was rich and dark and our water was arrived ice-cold, served in a frosty glass. As we left we received a thank you from all of the staff, well wishes for our day and invites to return. This gem will be a new weekly spot for us. Parking: Ample parking!" - Kevin (5 Star Google Review)
