Description: The exterior is multi-colored(can't miss it)! The interior features an eclectic collection of antiques from an 1890 Back Bar, Brass Cash Registers to a collection of Steamship Bells, as well as great steaks and choose from 12 homemade fresh sides! We try to be competitively priced with others in the area, and provide a meal the whole family can enjoy. We are across the parking lot from Super 8. If you are heading to us by way of the new highway just head to the KK exit. If you are coming from the south you turn right to the park way. If you are coming form the north you turn left to the parkway. At that point you turn left onto the Osage Beach Parkway, drive roughly 200 yards and we are on the left!!

We have been to the lake about every two weeks and have started eating here exclusively! We have done lunch and supper(dinner) and tried just about everything! Not a bad waitress in the place either! Natalie never forgets a thing and constantly checks on her tables!
You cannot go wrong for the money, this is the best bang for your buck!
The owner is present and friendly, and it's just the best we have tried!

Well...A family of four cost $85.00 drinks not included. Sure the atmosphere and decor is weird and nice to look out but the steaks were awful, the fried green beans cold, and the fries soggy. Our waitress never came back around for drink refills. We had to ask for more rolls. The bathrooms were not clean at all..I am sure there are better places to eat.

Thanks you for your review! It appears you are a relative new reviewer, but your comments help us to try and address our performance. Guests comments are most valuable when made with specificity, date, time with names of employees etc, and to management directly at the time. We would appreciate a second chance

The nachos were delicious. The tacos were better than a Mexican restaurant. The beans that were served with the tacos...I seriously could have had a big bowl of those and been satisfied. They were awesome. Only downside is the portions were HUGE definitely too much to eat in one sitting.

We have been a few times so it's time to write a review. We ate on a Saturday evening and glad we did not have to wait. Service was real good and the food really good. I love their garlic cheese biscuits and sweet cinnamon dessert (looks like a hush puppy); but, what is so impressive is all the creative side dishes to pick from! You get two sides with your dinner. I had the boss beans (black beans with pulled pork in a tortilla bowl) and the onion sticks. My husband had the fried green beans & fried seasoned red potatoes. My main dish was their special "Prime Rib" which was cooked perfectly and my husband had the Naked Chicken dinner (two chicken breasts grilled & seasoned perfectly). We commented that we need to come here more often as the portions and food are really good & priced right. Atmosphere is cool with a lot of old antiques everywhere - nostagia! I hope you like it as well as we do!!

We ate here 3 times in 3 days. We had the rib eye steak, my wife had a shrimp dish and I don't remember what else, but it was all good. The service was excellent. As a side note all of the décor in the place is really interesting! Good stop for us.
