Perhaps we ordered the wrong items. Pizza on buffet did look good but we were hungry for hamburgers. They advertised a Angus steak burger and potato chips. Burger tasted flat. It did not seem to have much seasoning. I don't know what I expected on the chips but received a tiny bag of Ruffels. 8-9 dollars for the meal.

This family owned business has amazing food! The crust and bread are homemade as well as the pizza sauce. All desserts are made fresh daily and they have seasonal local beer on tap! They also serve 🍷! The service is above average- our pizza was running a little behind so she kept our bellies full with a complimentary order of... More

Warm, friendly atmosphere. Food was really good but a bit pricey- we didn't mind because it was delicious and fresh. Nice and clean restaurant, we will be back. You must try the baked pasta dishes.

We were recently near Hollister and placed a large order. We were not disappointed! It had a really good amount of toppings and cheese. Definitely did not feel like we were just getting crust and sauce with a few toppings spread around. They put a nice amount of cheese on their pizzas=yummy! We ventured out and tried the spinach pie.... More

There are many good pizza shops in the Branson area and we have tried most of them. Branson West Pizza by the chef is hands down the best.

Went in for lunch and had the pasta, since we ate Pizza the day before. The pizza looked very good on the tables next to us. Their pasta was okay, but not the strength of what they have. Their sandwiches looked very big and other guests said they enjoyed them. So go for the pizza. Can't recommend the pasta.
