For over 100 years, work and agriculture, as well as education, have been important at College of the Ozarks. From its humble farm beginnings and early canning operations to today's student-run farms and student-produced smoked hams and other foods, "Hard Work U," as the College is known, continues to serve the Ozarks in many ways. Every part of your Dobyn’s Dining Room experience includes work done by students and products grown on campus.
Whether it’s a casual lunch, intimate dinner for two, or an elegant private dinner party for sixty, the culinary staff of students at Dobyn’s Dining Room offer something for every taste. Your Branson dining experience will be enhanced by student entertainment Thursday through Saturday evenings, and Sunday during their award-winning brunch, featuring a wide range of musical talent from the campus. For the sweet tooth anytime of the day, the bakery will satisfy any desire with pastries, cookies, and a variety of coffee and specialty drinks. Also, visit the College Creamery and enjoy student-made ice cream made with fresh dairy cream.
Dobyn’s Dining Room has many different amazing menu options, but here is the top from each category. For the appetizers, the best option is the Smoked Catfish Cakes. This is Dobyn’s take on the crab cake and uses some of the best catfish around. The catfish is hickory smoked and served with a smoked tomato tartar sauce. The best soup option is the signature smoked tomato soup. This soup uses vine ripened tomatoes with a basil cream sauce. Finally, for dinner is the Kansas City Strip. This angus steak is aged 21 days and then hand cut and grilled. The strip is served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and garden vegetables. This amazing dish perfectly sums up the flavor and effort that goes into each of Dobyn’s amazing dishes.
