Sitti's Table

Porter Koury and Jake Scott

After 5 years of private catering and community events, Jake Scott and Porter Koury’s catering business gained quite the public following which helped plant the idea of a brick in mortar that grew into Sitti’s Table–or something like that.

“We loved making whatever we were passionate about and felt like doing, always rooted in French technique but with new and different ingredients and approaches,”Jake said.

“There was a point where the idea of my grandmother’s table and the explosion of freshness in her light and healthy food made us want to share a vibrant version of that with the community,” Porter said.

The two opened Sitti’s Table (“sitti” is Lebanese for “grandmother”) in May 2022, starting with two tables and a small display refrigerator offering a few grab-and-go food and beverage options. Since then, it has become a community favorite.

Over 30 years ago, Bert’s passion for snowmobiling began. With a young family of four and two older sleds, the Miller family discovered a fun winter sport they could enjoy together. Family has always been a cornerstone of Bert’s life, and snowmobiling provided a perfect community for Bert and Brenda to raise their children, Sarah and Jeremy. It allowed them to enjoy the outdoors together in a place that nurtured both a love of recreation and a strong sense of togetherness.

The band is full of renowned musicians who have certainly made a name for themselves throughout the years. You have a 3 time flat-pick guitar champion and Western Music Association Instrumentalist of the year, a musician that has played for Frank Sinatra, a keyboard player that started at the age of 4, a sax player who performed in Branson for 25 year; 5 of those with his own show, and an award winning bass player holding it all together.
The Cody Cattle Company was started in 2008. Ryan Martin started in 2009 and has been the glue for the music ever since.
Greg & Ann Pendley purchased the business in 2019 they used that year to learn the business, but by 2020 they knew they could add to the band and have been performing with Ryan since.
Each of these performers is also a vocalist, so you get great harmonies on top of the fabulous music. While they pay homage to the western classics, they also sing some 50’s, 60’s and even a little taste of classic rock throughout the show. You’ll be singing along, tapping your feet and chair dancing for the entire show.
With an all you can eat, delicious buffet to start the night, (and a full bar), followed by the great music, you have a fabulous evening waiting for you at The Cody Cattle Company.
