Branson, MO is filled with some of the most unique restaurants and entertainment attractions around, most of which you can find at the popular Bronson Landing. Here are the top 5 places to stop in for a drink or two while out on the town during your next vacation.


Cantina Laredo

Cantina Laredo is probably one of the more romantic Mexican restaurants in Branson, as it sits on Lake Taneycomo. While known for its authentic Mexican fare, the main attractions are the water fountains out on the deck, where you can enjoy the water and fire show accompanied by synchronized music every hour. While you are enjoying the gorgeous view of the lake and taking in a one-of-a-kind water and fire show, you can sip on a white Sangria or the house margarita made with top shelf tequila.


Waxy O’Shea’s

Branson’s only Irish pub is located in historic downtown. Once you step in, you could swear that you just entered a pub in Dublin. Of course, you will find some of the most authentic Irish cuisine and beer, such as Guinness and Smithwick’s, but that is nothing compared to the 18-year-old Jameson Whiskey that they offer. Waxy O’Shea’s is definitely a must see when you vacation in Branson.

Located on the second floor of the Hilton Hotel in downtown Branson, this is the perfect place for a couple of cocktails before hitting the town.
