Great Restaurant Off the Beaten Path

My wife and I had Fettechini Alfredo with Shrimp. It is probably the best Fettechini we have eaten. The shrimp were delicious. The other family members had steak or prime rib. Their food was equally good. Great service and the waitress watched over us throughout the meal. The atmosphere is... read more

Everything we tasted was delicious from the escargot, caesar salad, french onion soup to the ribeye and prime rib. My fiance said his bloody mary was the best he had in some time. The service was impeccable!

At my request, I was seated on the screened in porch which has a nice view of the lake. Service was attentive and well-informed. The soup that day was roasted red pepper-just a hint of spice and excellent. I ordered fried chicken based upon other reviews. I found it a bit greasy but it tasted like homemade and four pieces...

We decided to give Ruthie D's a try tonight for dinner. We were very pleasantly surprised! Everyone at the table loved their meal. I had the prime rib special and was it ever stellar! I shared with everyone at the table because it was sooo good. It was a 12 ounce prime rib with all the fixings for $27. One... More

On a nice day you can sit out on a veranda overlooking the lake and the view is awesome. Food is some of the best in the area.

I am learning that the Lake of the Ozarks area has many fine restaurants that go beyond casual (and very good!) "Lake food". That goes further for some very fine chefs. But, Ruthie D's has fine dining with a great fireplace bar. The food and service are always above average every time we stop by for dinner, or just a... More

We dined at four of the top-rated restaurants during our four-day stay at the lakes, but Ruthi D's was the best by far! Outstanding French onion soup, fresh salads, an incredible special of the day (pheasant and duck cacciatore), extensive wine list and chef's recommendations upon request, personal and friendly service, and beautiful view. My chicken spedini was probably the... More

We visit there for happy hour. We love that they serve escargot. However, the acoustics in the bar area are terrible. It is very loud. The restaurant side is very nice and quiet. They have great food and great service.

Decided to eat at Ruthie D's due to a recommendation from the representative that worked at the Country Club. She said I would not be disappointed and she was correct. Our server Brandt was great. We never had a empty glass whether it was Brandt or a young guy I think his name was Dakota I know he was named... More
