We have done all of the above, and have a wonderful time each time. The owner, always greats us with a smile,... More

We stopped by on a Wednesday evening around 5pm for a quick bite before heading to Laurie fairgrounds for the Lake of the Ozarks shootout Party in the Park. We had read in local magazines that Bear Bottom was on the way and offered lakeside dining. The area was difficult to find, offering very little signage from the main highway.... More

I wanted to share with you that most of our server staff is not 21, therefore can not bar-tend, that would be the reason they are not moved into... More

They have have the typical Lake Bar menu. What Bare Bottom has that is different is a really nice staff... More
