Description: For over 20 years, Michael's Steak Chalet has been delighting steak lovers at the Lake of the Ozarks. Perched on a cliff and overlooking the lake at the 28 mile marker, Michael's Steak Chalet is just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Osage Beach, Missouri. Serving dinner daily from 5:00pm, you and your guests will enjoy a beautiful sunset dinner in our cozy dining room or weather permitting, settle in under the stars outside on our patio overlooking the lake. Famous for our Prime Rib, that is slow roasted every evening for 16 hours, Michael's also offers generous cut tender filets and strip steaks. All are aged 28 days, hand trimmed and cooked to your temperature. We also offer a wide variety of sea food including Grilled Salmon, Blackened Tuna, or an 8oz Lobster Tail. Consider Michael's Steak Chalet for your next meeting, reception or special event. Let our professional staff cater to your needs, however specific they may be.

“Cut your filet with your fork!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

This is a quiet and sort of hidden restaurant that we found out about by asking some friends that are "locals" where to eat. We are not big on chains so we always ask people of the area where to eat.
Our friends gave us a great list for the area and said "if you want a great steak, go to Michael's Steak Chalet!".
It's tucked away in a little village type residential area and there is dining inside overlooking our beautiful lake or on the patio.
The food is just fantastic!
The steaks are just so tender and flavorful!
The baked potatoes are served in the brown paper bag in which they were baked.
The staff always try extra hard to make sure you have a special evening.
If you are going on a Friday or Saturday during the summer, make a reservation! Seriously!
You must try it!

“Beautiful restaurant with great steak”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

We ate at Michaels on a Friday evening in July. There was a group of about 20 of us girls. We were all pleased to be seated quickly and drinks came out to us within 5 minutes of sitting down. All of us who ordered steaks were pleased to find out that they had cooked all of our steaks correctly. The service was great too! When we finished eating we took advantage of the beautiful location and took lots of pictures. We will be back this summer for our annual girls weekend.

The quaint swiss village look is adorable. Food is pricey, but good quality for a fine dining establishment.

This was ok, not bad, but for what I got I felt like it was over-priced

“Excellent, as always!”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Michaels continues to provide a memorable experience to their guests. Excellent service (Thanks Karen!), excellent food (try their house salad dressing, a Rice Wine Vinigarette, with blue cheese crumbles), and excellent atmosphere (if you get there early enough in the evening, the view of the main challen is great!).
They are a little hard to find now, with the Osage Beach Expressway - Take the KK exit, enter the round-a-bout, exit on to Burton Duenke Drive, turn right on Swiss Village Road and Michael's is at the bottom of the hill.
Check their hours before you go - I think they close for a few months in the winter time.
You won't regret it!
