“My favorite restaurant in 3 states.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

For two years, I've stayed in a pretty crappy hotel when I'm on business in Osage Beach - only because it's walking distance to Domenico's.
The food is absolutely awesome, large portions, great service. If you want a high-end experience, there's plenty of pricey dishes on the menu. However, there are also lots of great meals in the $10 - $15 range as well. Full bar with liquor, beer, and of course a tremendous wine list.
If you're at the Lake of the Ozarks, you need to stop and try Domenico's at least once.

“Excellent food at affordable prices”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We are local to the Lake area, and very much enjoy Dominicos! We love the All you can eat Prime Rib special. Everything is always great!

“Old, tired and food becoming very average”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

My wife and I get here every year or so during lake visits. This last time, September, it seems to have really aged and seemed depressing. We were taken into the second overflow room even through there was plenty of room in the main room. Never feels right when you're the only two people in a big room at a restaurant (and we do wear shoes, shirts and dress up). Fortunately a few more folks were seated in there so felt better. We just don't think the food is as good as it has been in the past. My wife grew up in St. Louis and has experienced a lot of good Italian restaurants and was disappointed this time. Time to freshen the experience.

“Average”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The Italian food is a good price, but the other meals are a bit pricey. The bread wasn't what you would expect with Italian food, but was pretty good. I had the cannelloni and it was quite good. We enjoyed the decor and overall atmosphere.

“Just average...”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Just average food, and a little pricey, but the wait staff was great. It took a lot longer than we thought it should for our food, but it wasn't bad.
