We really liked this show, especially cheyanne and snowflake. We hope snowball comes on time and is not too traumatized by the experience! We were touched by the christian influence we felt in the show, also. As christians ourselves, we of course like to perceive it in others.

The entertainment was excellent as well as the food. The trail of lights was a very big hit because of the photo op. Inspiration tower provided an outstanding view of the christmas lights of branson.

The entertainment was great but we unfortunately will not go back. The bathrooms were disgusting and a waitress came in with a towel that is used to wipe her hands and tables tied to the back of her pants and went into the bathroom stahl with the towel still on her pants. It made me not want to continue to eat anything g there. Also outside the kitchen area smelled like sewer drainage. It was unfortunate becuthe singing and everything was great but the surroundings grossed me out

Christmas on the trail is a fun cowboy music show. Meal was good but definitely chuckwagon style. Drive through christmas decorations was a nice touch for no extra cost.

We have been to the 2015, 2016 & plan on being at branson again for the 2017 show. Great eats & food. Don't see how they get every one seated & the food to all so quickly! Enjoy everything about this show plus the parade of christmas lights down the mountain.

"The food was good."
The food was good. The show was good but not what i expected. For something that was supposed to be a sing-a-long, i didn't recignize hardly any of the songs. The christmas trail of lights was great. That was more than i expected.

"The food was awful."
The food was awful. The service was great! Our waitperson was very nice! The show was good and the lights were terrific! They need to do something about the food. Many people around us were so disgusted with the food that they left. That is bad. The food was not well prepared and it was cold.

A 3* because of the food being pretty good and the service was very good. However, the show/entertainment has two fiddle players that are very good, a poem recited was sweet and a guitar player was excellent. Performers - save one, who was also santa eventually - sat in chairs and didn't move on the stage. No colorful costumes, all guys, no pizzazz, no comedy to speak of and not a good job of engaging the audience except sing-along c'mas carols. Yes, i know - it's supposed to be a 'sing around the campfire' premise, but there was so much more that couldn't been done! We won't be recommending this year's show to our friends.

Seating was to close together. They had enough room to add another table and spread the people out more.
