We read some reviews on this restaurant and thought we would try it. It is a bar upstairs and a small eating are downstairs. It was way too smoky to enjoy a meal so we left.

Hello and thanks for stopping in. I don't like the smoke either. We have tried to combat this in a couple ways. The downstairs is non smoking and is the only non smoking / bar restaurant in Lake Ozark. The upstairs we have added the patio which is smoking, but with it being outside it isn't very noticeable. However, when it is 96 degrees no one is going to sit on a patio. When weather cools down to 80 or below we have added several slide out windows to get air flow moving. If your down for the rest of the week I would encourage you to give it one more shot downstairs. Until then we will wait until Missouri catches up with the rest of the country and goes non smoking. Thanks again.

From the outside I thought it was another bar at the lake of the ozarks. I went in unsure if it was good for two small children. It turned out great. Good value, excellent food and great people. I have since returned for equally good experiences.

So Saturday night my wife and I came In to Casablanca. Having never been we didnt know to seat ourselves or not and it was very crowded so we turned around and were going to walk out. However a very nice server, shanya stopped us asked if she could help us. I explained i didnt think this was the bar for us. She found us a small table by the wall, got us a drink and before I knew it we were dancing to great music, met some great people and the food was great! We were very impressed w the service, the bartender was wonderful, our server was fun, attentive and just a doll, smiling all night long! I'm glad we decided to stay. Will definitely be back!

We started our dinner trying to order a couple items that were on the menu but the restaurant doesn't actually sell. No big deal but the calzones sounded good. Once our order were placed, we were shocked to see a staff member dragging a trash can through the restaurant and out the front door. We laughed it off but there has to be a better way than pulling garbage passed customers who are eating. Our waitress who was actually very nice had to inform us that they were out of fries. We changed our sides to chips and homemade pasta salad. A short time later we were told they didn't have pasta salad either. Chips all around! Next a cook came running up to our table with a container of onion straws looking for my burger. A few seconds later our waitress walked up with our food. The cook frantically opened up my burger and put some of the onion straws on it. He apologized for "forgetting a key ingredient". The food was actually good and everyone was satisfied except for one person in our party who had to wait an additional 20 minutes for his pizza.

All in all the food was good and affordable. The waitress was kind and attentive. Everything else was just kind of screwy. We won't be going back but it looked like it would be a decent place to drink and hangout for an older crowd (50s - 60s) who don't mind a smokey room.

Thanks for giving us a shot. You might want to give the Casagrotto in the lower level a try next time your down. Brick Oven Pizza, non smoking, and 24 craft beers. Completely different vibe. Thanks again.
