  • Devil’s Pool Restaurant

    Come join us for a casual dining experience that combines the best of southern home-style fare with the rustic elegance of a decade-old log structure, steeped in history as rich as the sumptuous desserts prepared by our chefs.

    There is no mystery as to what attracted entrepreneur Jude Simmons to this slice of Ozarks wilderness. The gentle hillsides were an ideal backdrop for his rustic getaway that would reflect the grandeur of Adirondack lodges and entertain in casual elegance. The home featured native materials, including a huge stone fireplace that still warms our dining room when fall and winter chill the air. Today, hand-wrought metal chandeliers cast a warm glow over antique furnishings and our 100-year-old mahogany bar. Bark covered logs and exposed rafters are a fitting complement to the sporting gear and animal mounts that adorn our walls in the Bass Pro tradition. Outdoor balcony seating is an option as weather permits.

    Buzzard Bar’s Singin’ Cowboy
    If you have ever been to Buzzard Bar at Big Cedar Lodge, you probably fell in love with the entertainment from the “Singin' Cowboy".

    Clay Self started working at the Stables at Big Cedar Lodge in 1989. Clay had no intention of ending up in Missouri but luckily fell in love with the Ozarks 20 years ago while visiting family, and with such talent, talked his way into playing music at the Buzzard Bar. Now every Wednesday through Sunday, Clay entertains the guests with his comedy and music routine.

    Aside from his amazing “Singin' Cowboy” acts at Big Cedar Lodge, Clay has become more widely known for his performances at the Atlanta 500, PBR, and the Grand Ole Opry. He also continues to play for Big Cedar’s campfires and Chuckwagon Rides and, “can’t wait to see what the next 20 years have in store.”

    Come to Big Cedar and see why Clay is everyone’s favorite Singin' Cowboy!

  • Truman Coffee & Café

    One of the original structures on our property, this charming little specialty shop once served as the garage for its owner. While the interior has been dramatically redesigned, the exterior still reflects its 1920s Tudor style and quaint charm. You may choose indoor or patio seating.

    Breakfast is a great time to visit. Our coffees, cappuccino, and espresso will get you started. Baked fresh everyday, our pastries and fresh muffins are on the list of favorites. If you're looking for heartier fare, we'll prepare traditional breakfast treats such as biscuits and gravy and breakfast sandwiches.

    For lunch, you'll be drawn to Truman Coffee & Café where you'll discover a tempting array of sandwiches, soups, salads, and accompaniments. Add some of our delicious sides and you've created the perfect meal.

    Hot afternoons signal the taste buds that it's time for something ice cold and refreshing. We can rise to the occasion with icy drinks, fruit smoothies, and frappes.

    We're open for breakfast, lunch, and an evening meal through the summer season. At other times, our schedule is subject to change.

    Complimentary wireless Internet is available at Truman Coffee & Café.

  • Arnie’s Barn

    To honor Arnold Palmer, Big Cedar Lodge founder Johnny Morris asked his wife Jeanie to help find an old barn near Palmer’s hometown of Latrobe, Pennsylvania to house the golf pro shop and a second restaurant at Top of the Rock. She delivered. Right in Palmer’s own backyard, Mrs. Morris found Arnie’s Barn. Local Ozark craftsman Danny Schwartz and his family members all joined in to carefully disassemble the barn and its 46-foot timbers, numbering each piece, transporting it and re-erecting the barn at Top of the Rock. Some of the timbers from the barn – which included the now extinct American chestnut – are so old, Top of the Rock historians are carbon dating them. When the barn was built 150 years ago, some of those timbers were already well over 100 years old. 

    From Arnie’s Barn, guests enjoy magnificent views of the practice facility along with unique memorabilia and golf gear found nowhere else. You don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy an afternoon at Arnie’s Barn. The restaurant serves contemporary Mexican cuisine, perfect before or after a round on the links. And here at Arnie’s Barn, an immense fireplace, balcony seating and a cozy lounge area make up the backdrop for many a tall tale of a hole-in-one or monster bass hooked on Table Rock Lake.
