“A beach in Missouri?”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

Sure thing. That's why We go there once or twice a summer. It's a decent beach that the kids love. They can play in the water that maxes out about 5 ft deep at the rope barrier. Plus they can play in the sand on the shore. All the while mom and dad can have a few cold cocktails. They have two sand vball courts that gets some action on the weekend. They have some small houses right on the property (we have not stayed there). The food at the restaurant is above average for lake food. Good variety and seating inside and out. The location is decent to get to by boat and land (right off highway 5).

“Over priced ”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

What a fun place. Great atmosphere. Great music. Sand volleyball looked fun


Food overpriced and not that good. Margarita not so great - stick to beer or wine.

“Nice waiter but had to leave!!!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

My friend and our kids went down to the lake together and thought that it would be fun to go to Caption Ron's.
We walked in and swam in the water which was packed and muddy. It was still nice to get wet though. Then we played volleyball. That was fun but then we were seated to our table.
We were placed next to a smelly sower that reeked so bad we asked to move but they were "full". We saw about seven tables open but the workers wouldn't allow us.
We moved to a table under the tent which was completely infected with flies!!! My family and I were disgusted. We had to get out!
Although the waiter was nice about our change in restaurants and felt bad for us so he paid for our drinks. But that place was not appealing at all.

“Best Sand Beach in the Ozarks”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Arriving by boat we were met by a helpful dock boy and directed to the hostess, Rachel. This place has 2 large sand beaches with plenty of complimentary chairs(first come first served). There are plenty of slips to dock a lot of boats(yes you can also come by car). The main building houses the restaurant which is Pirate themed and a lot of fun. There are several outdoor bars with great selections. Sand Volleyball was open for all.
The food was top notch and we had a variety of apps served right on the beach. If you are spending time in the Ozarks you need to schedule a day at Captain Ron's.

“Good family stop”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here with the wife and kids. It turned out to be a very family friendly place with a good beach, bounce house and other activities. The food AND ECPECIALLY THE DRINKS were way too pricey, but that is typical for a place on the water. Service was a little slow, but the hot wings were AWESOME! I would go eat wings, drink water and let the kids run!
