This show was a fabulous surprise. Didn't know what to expect but got a great meal and fantastic entertainment out of the event - would recommend highly.

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.
-- Thomas Barron - Phenix City, Alabama
Great meal. The entertainment was very good. Liked driving through the lights.
-- Steven Carden - Mulvane, KS
Fantastic show! We love how the show brings in a spiritual side of christmas along with santa clause. This is the 2nd year we’ve attended this show and will be back in the future. The meal is pretty good also. Servers are wonderful, very attentive.

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.

Good food, good entertainment, included the wonderful christmas trail and the tower!
-- John Cheney - ZEELAND, MICHIGAN
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.
-- Gary Purcell - Stillwater, OK
Great food, great atmosphere, enjoyed the show!
-- Benny Ellington - McKinney, Texas
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.
-- Janet E Michael - Portland, Maine
The show the food the .......Everything was wonderful. As soon as we can afford it we will be back.
-- Freddie Delport - Springs, RS
Show was great, displays on light trail were old and worn out ans several lights didnt work.
-- Gary Freudensprung - Lake Jackson, TX
Talented group of performers. Music, comedy and spiritual components were great. Dinner was good and wait staff were very attentive. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a unique holiday experience. Great value!
-- Susan McDonald - Mabelvale, AR
Amazing family show.. Great food also.
-- Teressa Pence - Greenville, Texas
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.
-- Linda Logan - Cushing, OK
We enjoyed the turkey dinner and the show was very good. The mix between song and country storytelling was excellent.

Very entertaining show and good food

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