Grandma Ruth rocks! Superior flavors, fast service, i often take a dozen rolls to work for coworkers--toffee, caramel, cinnamon flavors are rich. Very friendly service, helpful directions to local sights.

We had ordered cinnamon rolls for pick up Christmas Eve morning pick up. We had to wait just a few minutes for them to come out of the oven. It was worth the wait. We heated them up and had them for Christmas morning.

When we have out of town guests stay at our Branson home, we always like to take them to Grandma Ruth's for some good old fashioned homemade rolls and a little nostalgic country music performed live by John Fullerton. John is very friendly and will do most requests for the older country western music(Roy Rogers & Gene Autry). The last... More

My wife and I heard a lot of people say wonderful things about the cinnamon rolls so we went by later in the morning. They were huge but would have been better coming warm out of the oven. Ours were a bit cool and gummy. I'm sure if we had come by earlier they would have been better.

These cinnamon rolls are unbelievable! They were still warm when we got them back to the hotel. We really enjoyed them. There was even somebody there to sing to you if you stayed and ate at the shop. Yummy! Glad I don't live too close - these would kill my diet for sure!

It's against the law to come to Branson and not have a cinnamon rolls or a caramel rolls! I make them at home but not like Grandma's. She has the touch! And I do mean they are delicious!

After all the great reviews, we stopped here for breakfast. Could not have been a better experience. Very friendly "grandma" hard at work in the kitchen greeted us through the screen door.

Grandma Ruth is an active participant in the making of the rolls from mixing the dough to icing the rolls. The rolls were served fresh and warm right out of the oven. A roll is almost too much for one person to eat, but I finished every last bite. They had live music the day I was there. Nothing but... More
