Hard Luck Diner
Right next to the Grand Palace Theater of Branson is a small '50s-style diner guaranteed to take you back to yesteryear. The staff is made up of aspiring actors, singers, musicians and songwriters, and it is not uncommon for one or a group of them to break into song and dance as they cavort around the tables. The menu is themed as well, featuring selections such as Cheese Release Me, a grilled cheese sandwich with all the trimmings for $5.29. Try the Love Me Tender Fried Steak for $8.59. A complete soda fountain lines the back wall with more than 15 flavors of soda and over 25 flavors of ice cream.
I'm sorry to the other reviews and don't mean to be rude, but holy moly...this place was awful! THis was by far the worst meal I have eaten in the last year. We live in KCMO and are used to nice restaurants...maybe this place is good by Branson standards, but I'm not very impressed with those standards. The servers are mediocre singers who are not that great or they would not be singing/waitressing in a diner in Branson. The chicken tenders were rubbery and got sent back for an ok hamburger. The fish and chips were disgusting and I thought I was going to vomit them up. My husband had the pot roast which was stone cold in the middle...The only positive was that his strawberry shake was good! I was really disappointed and would love to never go near this place again! I'm not sure who is giving it the rave reviews, but unless we were there on an off night, I question their taste.
WOW...WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE TO RELAX AND ENJOY A GOOD MEAL WITH....SMILING AND SINGING SERVERS...FROM MY 2 YEAR OLD GRANDSON, TO MY 83 YEAR OLD MOTHER....WE LOVED THIS PLACE AND ARE TELLING ALL OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO EXPERIENCE THIS PLACE. THANK-YOU,
I couldn't wait to get home and write a review about this place! What a great, cool, neat, awesome place. You can't help but feel good when you’re at the Hard Luck. We were a table of four. My husband and I both had burgers he had fries I had onion rings both with a soda. Are you ready for this! $20.00 IN BRANSON THAT IS CHEAP! So you’re sitting there eating and suddenly you hear singing and you know it’s live and you’re thinking where's the band! NOPE it is your waitress/waiter, walking all around the dinner singing. And I'm not even kidding they can really sing. They take requests too! I absolutely love the Hard Luck Dinner. Honestly I would vote this # 1 Casual place to eat in Branson. FUN FUN FUN! Food tasted great too, but stay away from the spaghetti I hear that’s not so good. LOL Really! Give it a try. I know I'll go back again and again!
What a wonderful, fun, entertaining family atmosphere. It was awesome!! The wait staff all sing and we had the best time. We will certainly go back. The food was delicious! HIGHLY RECOMMEND you check this place out!! It was one of the highlights of our vacation.
I have been to the diner a few times and enjoy it. Was wondering what it takes to apply for a job at the Hard Luck Diner, You can contact me by email email@example.com. Thank you very much Heather Baker
We have visited Branson over 20 times and we always make it a point to visit the Hard Luck Diner. The food is good which is what you would expect for a diner but the singing is what we really go for. Wouldn't miss it.
My family and I just returned from Branson. We stayed for a week and visited many resuraunts and shows in the area. I have to say that this little Diner is a MUST! The men even enjoyed it... My grandaughter is only 19 months old and she was in awe as the singers sang to her. She smiled and clapped. They also have CD's available to purchase with their music on it, but they do not pressure you to buy it. The food is delicious and actually hard to eat it all. I never seen a hot dog or hamburger so big... : ) The prices are reasonable and what more could you want than good food and entertainment for one small price?
Docker's is built to resemble a stern wheeled steamboat. Owners Don and Noela Kirkland pride themselves on providing a great
dining experience that is tasty, yet quick, allowing you ample time to enjoy the sights and sounds of Branson. ...
When it is time to pull out all the stops and get away from the buffets and the frantic pace
of the Strip, this is the place to go. Dark cherry wood paneling divides the large dining room into ...
If you're open to some great American food at America's Diner, we're open for you. Come and see us for
your fill of, well, whatever it is you're in the mood for. Fluffy pancakes, crispy bacon, a juicy burger ...
