We had such a nice experience here. First, our waitress, Kristie was an amazing waitress. So, sweet, friendly and helpful. I was torn between having the lobster Mac and cheese and a steak. Kristie suggestioned I have both and forego the sides that come with the filet. Such an amazing suggestion. The Lobster mac n cheese was life changing. So good, flavorful and creamy. When she served the filet it looked a little dry but cutting into it, I found out I was very wrong. So juicy, tender and flavorful.
Very good experience. Hopefully we will back next time we come to the Ozarks.

Solid choice, has been there for 30+ years, always consistent with Good Lobster and Steaks in my experience. Onion Rings are good appetizer. Wife had the Lobster and I had the Prime Rib for Valentines day. Was very good and Patricia our waitress was excellent. Will return (and request Patricia). Place could use an update, but really it's about the meal and service and both were top notch for us.

We had an excellent dining experience. The food was very good. Our waitress, Anji, provided outstanding service in her own remarkable way. It was a wonderful experience and would recommend J Bruner’s to anyone at the Lake.

We went for New Year's eve and the food was not good, my trout was burned, my husband's fish had no taste. The wait staff was lovely and attentive but all 4 of us were disappointed by the food and this is not an inexpensive restaurant.

Nice Folks, fair food, service was acceptable. Not opposed to spending good money for a nice meal for sure, but the atmosphere and overall food presentation (I'm not a foodie, but this term seemed to fit) did not in any way fit the cost, which was as much a some finer restaurants we have dinned at in downtown Chicago. I checked "would recommend" so as not to discourage others as long as their expectations are in line for the value they receive. If asked, I will explain cost vs. value, and atmosphere, let them know food is in fact good, and let them decide if Brunners fits their requirements. Not trying to create a bad review, just trying to share my wife and I's thoughts as usable info to management. Thank you

J Bruners has been a longstanding business in the Lake of the Ozarks area. It is understandable why it has been in business so long. The food was excellent! The stuffed mushroom appetizer was so yummy! Wine list has a nice selection. Our waitress, Angie, was very attentive and had a great personality! We will be back!!!

The food was very good . the 6 oz. lobster tails were a bit small and somewhat over breaded. The service was very accomodative and helpful. The onion rings were excellent as was the steak and prime rib.

Reservation was on time, staff extremely friendly, good entrance and parking for handicap, food was served when expected and their was plenty of comfortable seating. The Thanksgiving Dinner was good other than they were out of one side and the turkey did not include any slices, only shreds and pieces and not too appetizing. Other customers seemed to be enjoying good beef selections.

Rare to find a fine dining restaurant open on the Lake of Monday but J. Bruner's is always open with a perfect steak in a quiet atmosphere. The ribeye was done perfectly with a medium-rare center and crusted outside and my wife's filet mignon was also perfect. Stuffed mushrooms were the perfect start to a fine meal with outstanding service. My only recommendation would be to lighten the atmosphere as it is dark beams, dark carpeting and dim lighting which was very popular back in the 1900s!

I have dined here twice in a week, something I would rarely do while traveling; the steaks are just that good. Old-school decor should not fool you- the beef is without peer, and the wine list and sides are up to the standard of the steaks. A real gem.

Food was good but for the price you can find other restraurants in the area for less money. The drinks are rather expensive also but for a nice evening you wish to spend a good amount of money for good food then J. Burners is the place to go.
