Four of us stopped in around 7:00 p.m. on a recent Saturday night. We were told the wait would be 40 minutes. We grabbed a seat at the bar and had a table by the time our drinks were gone. I love that. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful. We ordered appetizers and entrees. Food was great! Pulled pork,... More

I went to Wobbly Boots with a group of six for dinner while vacationing in Osage Beach, Missouri. The first thing that impressed me was how they texted me when our table was ready, which allowed us to wait outside. (Full disclosure: This may be common at restaurants now; I am not a frequenter of many places.) The food was... More

Wasn't sure where to take my family for dinner around 7 pm on a Friday night at the lake. Most choices are on the expensive side (Baxters, JB Hooks, Bently's, Ruthie D's, The Blue Heron, Michaels Swiss Chalet) or I wasn't sure if is was too late to bring them to a lakeside resturant (Backwater Jacks/Frankie and Louie's.) So, I... More

I had been told that Wobbly Boots was "The Place" to go in Osage Beach. I have to say, that after waiting an hour it was just a little disappointing. We had amazing service from our waitress Tasha, but the food was just ok. I thought for being a bbq place, there would be more than one sauce to choose... More

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
