Andy Williams' Moon River Grill

When visiting Branson, schedules are often full, and finding time for a long, leisurely dinner is difficult.


This was the situation my friend and I found ourselves in tonight. We had seen the epic show, Joseph, at the Sight and Sound Theatre this afternoon and were taking in Clay Cooper's Country Music Express this evening. In between the two was just enough time to drive to Andy Williams' Moon River Grill and hope for good food and speedy service. We got both but missed not having more time to sit back, relax and enjoy this very cool spot. 


The restaurant is large, with four dining rooms and a generous bar area. The interior design is reminiscent of the 1960s. On the walls are displays of Andy Warhol-like art and pieces from Williams' personal collection, including framed gold records, photos of the star, etc. 


Andy Williams' Moon River Grill routinely features live music. Tonight, we were entertained by a talented artist at the piano. His selections were hits from the 60s - by Williams and some of his buddies. Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc. Loved it!


Many of the entrees featured on the menu are Williams' mother's recipes. I ordered her meatloaf, and I could not  have been happier. It was spicy and delicious and came with sides of mashed potatoes and green beans — foods that always comfort me!


Our waiter told us Andy Williams lives in Branson about nine months of the year. He pointed out  "Andy's Reserved Table" in one of the main dining rooms and told us Williams pops in frequently for dinner and to visit with his patrons. He said it would not surprise him one little bit if Williams showed up this very night!


If it had not been for plans already made and tickets purchased, I would have enjoyed sitting there for a couple of hours - just in case the main man showed up. I would have loved to meet him, tell him how much I've always enjoyed his music, how much I appreciated the opportunity to dine at the Moon River Grill and see for myself what others are always raving about!
