Loved the food

I LOVE BBQ. I would have ribs 7 days a week. Loved the flavor and ability to chose from several sauces. The side portions were huge--more than enough for me to share with my daughter with leftovers. Will definitely return next time in Osage Beach.

Wow, the BBQ pork was excellent and the baked beans awesome! Truly did not expect such great service and great food. Awesome choice and would recommend it highly! Ate there twice while in the area and took some "to go" as well. Great service!

We visited this restaurant while vacationing in the Ozarks. I have been to a Bandana's restaurant three times now and still have not found anything worth raving about. I know others in my party thought it was great but I have not found that. The service was good and quick but the food is very average to me. It does... More

Voted the best barbecue? We were totally disappointed in the ribs. They were tough. It was hard to get the meat off the bone and much of it was grizzly and fat. Service was okay but our server didn't seem thrilled to be there. I wouldn't go back. Too many other barbecue places competing for business.

We love Bandanas. Their food is always good, no matter which location you go to - Osage Beach, Jefferson City or Sedalia, and the service is fast. Heading to the Lake, we had a full car and didn't want to stop and eat. We googled the phone number and called our order in ten minutes before we got to the... More

I was with a group of 19 teachers attending a workshop. The staff took our separate checks in stride, filled our drinks so many times it was impressive. The menu variety was good and the food was great, quick and correct! Definitely will return!

Had intended to check out another BBQ restaurant in the area that was recommended to us, but the the wait on a weekday night was almost an hour. Saw Bandana's up the street and decided to check it out. Had the beef platter and it was great! Love that rub on the edges. Service was excellent.

Great employees, Great atmosphere, but just wasn't impressed with the food at all. I've had way better ribs, but people I were with loved it and I don't understand.

We stayed at the Lake of the Ozarks for a week and we ate here every day (really, every day). It's just that good. We had 5 people in our group and I think we pretty much had one of everything on the menu. We were always seated promptly and the servers were always quick and courteous. Food arrived in... More
