Some of the best cuisine in the Midwest can be savored right here at the Lake. Whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner, your appetite will fare well. And we do have variety! At the Lake of the Ozarks there are more than 100 reasons to dine out, that is, the area's 100-plus restaurants. At the Lake, you'll find contemporary gourmet creations by world-renowned chefs, tasty Ozark barbecue, all-you-can-eat buffets, juicy bar-and-grill burgers, down-home favorites, all types of ethnic offerings and much more.
Best of all, nearly half of the Lake Area's restaurants are located directly on the water or offer a fantastic view of it. Marvel at the panorama of an unlimited channel view, or dine beside a secluded, scenic cove, while you enjoy award-winning continental cuisine and superb wine, or Ozarks-style barbecue, or fresh-caught catfish. For dining as close to the water as possible, step onto a boat cruise, where you can enjoy dining while viewing the beautiful Lake.
Off the water, you'll find great dining from hot dogs to haute cuisine, with frozen custard and other tasty treats available as well.
