Restaurant
We are currently closed for lodging, the park store, and camping thru April 30 to help slow the spread of Covid-19. You can fish without a tag or license until April 15 but normal regulations are enforced. Feel free to call us Monday - Friday, 9-5 at 417-847-2330. We will see you soon and ... Be Safe!

From 7:00 a.m. in the morning until the restaurant closes an hour after fishing at night, the only thing we specialize in is the taste of a good home cooked meal! It doesn't matter whether you like your eggs over easy or scrambled; chicken fried steak with home made gravy or fresh fried chicken in our own special recipe; our kitchen will do their best to make sure you walk away full and satisfied. When arriving at the Emory Melton Inn, visitors can expect to smell the freshly cooked bacon or the grilled burgers filling the parking lot depending upon what time of day they arrive.

But the restaurant doesn't just serve meals on a regular basis. We also do banquets, weddings, family reunions, baby showers, proms and any other special events that one can image. Pictured are but a few of the things that we have done in the past.
