We hadn't been to Ruthie D's for a while so it was a great reminder of how good their food & service is (wait staff Lynn was fabulous!) & what a wonderful view they have of the lake. Awesome dinner!

Every time we go to the Ozarks, we make it a point to have dinner at Ruthie D's. Great food. Great atmosphere. Great wait staff. Parrie made a fantastic dinner even better!

I came in with my sister for dinner and the first thing I noticed was the view. It was so beautiful. The filet minion was prepared perfectly, and I had the best service quality from my waitress Parrie. She was so considerate and kind to our table that I highly recommend her. I highly recommend this restraunt over all!!

Our amazing server Mrs. Perry gave us great service and a great heart! The food was top of the line and at a very good price. Mrs. Perry is a professional at her job keeping up with our drinks and making sure we were cared for. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We love this restaurant. We prefer eating on patio but inside dining is scenic with lake view if sitting in the back dining room. Good food, good and friendly service

We brought our friends in from out of town to experience dining with a a lake view. Not only was our dinner absolutely delicious but Lynn our server was excellent. Our entire group enjoyed our dining experience and the high quality of food and ambiance this restaurant offers. Don't miss an opportunity to treat yourselves.

Thank Lynn T
