Ruthie D's is our favorite restaurant at the lake. We visit the lake four to five times a year and we always eat at least once here. If we only have one night, Ruthie D's is where we go. The food is outstanding. The chef is truly talented. We have never had a bad meal or even an ok meal.... More

Service was top notch. We ordered three different meals and loved all three. The view was great. Desserts were also tasty. We liked the quieter location.

This is a very unique restaurant on Horseshoe Bend. It is off the beaten path for the Lake of the Ozarks, but it is worth the extra drive to find good food and service. My wife and I have found the food to be consistently great and the service is excellent. One would not expect to find such an eloquent... More

An enjoyable and excellent dining experience for our 27th anniversary with friends. Nice view of the lake. I had a wonderful pork with Blue Cheese Sauce and my wife loved the stuffed white fish. Compliments to the chef and special words of appreciation to Amber for her excellent service and fantastic dessert.

Four of us came in hungry from the lake on a Thursday night around 8:00. No reservation, so we had a short wait. The place is very nice inside, which isn't evident from the street. The view of the lake is very good. You can eat outside on a covered deck, but we elected to sit inside. There must have... More

A great place to eat in the Horseshoe Bend area. Lucretia was an excellent server. Try the jalapeño grits.

Ruthie D's was exactly what I was looking for during my stay at the Lake. I wanted dining with a view of the lake along with a good fish dish. I sat on the screened porch overlooking the lake as I enjoyed the stuffed white fish entree and a local beer to satisfy my thirst. Lucretia was very friendly and... More

My wife and I had an outstanding dinner tonight here. We went based on lot of the reviews and they didn't lead us astray. Ruthies white fish was fantastic and I had a small filet which was excellent also. Everything was done to the proper serving temperatures and nicely plated. Our drinks were very good also. Allison gave us great... More

We had a great experience at Ruthie D's the other night. We are regular customers and our new waiter, Brent, did a great job. We generally order the whitefish and are never disappointed. Diane A
