I'm really surprised at the several posts submitted before mine, but circumstances do happen sometimes and I'm just here to tell you about my visit. First off, my boys were excited to spot a celebrity race car driver inside when we arrived. I'm sure he wouldn't want me to advertise his name, so I'd better not. But regardless of that,... More

After we were seated it was 15 minutes before our waiter took our drink order. When he brought the drinks he left say sing,"I'll be back when I can." We waited longer & someone went to talk to the manager & he made excuses. We were seated when the ball game on tv had just started.We finally got our food... More

I noticed Wobbly Boots had great reviews when I looked through the local Lake of Ozarks magazines. These were the kind of "we're one of the best rated" reviews you get when you have your staff and friends stuff the contest ballot-boxes. But still, even that shows some level of organizational competence. Sadly, even that minimal know-how didn't translate to... More

Good BBQ and a large menu to choose from. Best to visit during off times, due to long waits to get seated. Would visit here again. Fed our family of 4 for only $55!

I'm not understanding the good reviews on this place...this is NOT good BBQ!!! If you enjoy this BBQ you've never had real BBQ. It's warmed up, dry, COLD...and just tastes bad. Appetizers were from a frozen box. "Wet" I guess means a small squirt of sauce. So loud in here I left with a headache. Service was actually very nice...she... More

Very good BBQ wings. We came here for the fourth. The wings are bar b qued and have a great smoky flavor. The bartender was attentive and very friendly I would recommend this place for anyone in the Lake of the Ozarks arts.

Service was fine. Food terrible. We had boneless wings and onion rings as app. Wings were obviously frozen from a bag (way over cooked ate three and left rest) and rings were ok. Breading fell off after first bite. Ordered pulled pork Sammie and two meat plate. All food arrived Luke warm or cold. Sent back. Second time out arrived... More

Last year, I would have said that this was by far, the best restaurant in town. But, the past two times that we have been there, I have to say that they have gone far down hill. Their mac & cheese used to be awesome but this time the pasta was way overcooked and it was served lukewarm at best.... More

My husband and I went to have a late lunch at the suggestion of our hotel. My husband ordered the Reuben and onion rings which I could not keep from getting. I ordered a pulled pork and sweet potato fries. Food great, atmosphere wonderful, and would gladly return!
