We were driving home from Arkansas and decided to stop for a late lunch. We had a wonderful meal at this little place. My hubby had the sirloin steak medallions wrapped in bacon and I had lasagna. It was all delicious!

Get the sirloin steak wrapped in bacon. The brown sauce is $2 extra but worth it. They also make "take and bake" pizzas if you happen to be staying at a place that has an oven. They have a nice selection of wine and beer also.

I love eating here. The atmosphere is relaxing, intimate, and friendly. I have seen people in here fresh off the lake and in slacks and skirts. It is that kind of place. They have added seating and have live entertainment on certain days. The price of food is very reasonable and a very large selection of wine, mixed drinks, and... More

When my family announced they would be celebrating Christmas at this tiny little restaurant in Stockton, of all places, my big city mind giggled a little. That was the biggest example of judging a book by its cover!! Shame on me for pre-judging this fantastic place. This Italian bistro had a wonderful menu selection. The food is amazing ... prepared...

Bongo's restaurant at Stockton Lake is a very unique dining experience. The meals are excellently prepared and served professionally. I have never been disappointed after years of dining at Bongo's for special occasions or just a casual dinner. The restaurant closed for awhile by the owners, but has been reopened by the chef this past summer.

We love Italian food, so we decided to try Bongo's! We didn't realize you needed to make reservations, but luckily they had one table open for us. It's a charming little place, only about 10 tables in all. Our waitress was pleasant enough, & we got our cold drinks super fast. But the quick service ended there. We waited for... More

Going to Stockton Lake from KC, my wife and I ate at Bongo’s a couple of years ago. The place was busy (popular) I remember rather crowded during a 7ish-8ish dinner time. But we enjoyed it and wanted to go back sometime. We did go back, as part of our B&B weekend, this mid-June 2014, arriving around 9 pm. Once... More

Bongo's used to be my favorite place close by to relax, drink a great bottle of wine with my meal and just enjoy the great food. Alas, they have closed the restaurant, but continue the tradtion of fantastic food by keeping the Pizza kitchen going. You can order it to have it hot and ready when you pick it up,... More
