I had some of the best ribs ever. Even the half rack was HUGE. My wife had the Alaskan cod off of the lite menu. It was still a good size, served with drawn butter. It has been several years since we were last here. I believe that it is even better than before.

We have eaten at the Ozark House many times and have never had a bad meal ! We enjoy the friendly staff and the cozy atmosphere. Everyone does their best and makes you feel welcomed.

My wife and I had heard a lot about the Ozark House so we had to try it. We will never go back. The food was awlful. So e of it was under cooked. Some was just frozen food they heated up. Then add that the serve was not very nice.

I visited the Ozark House with my in-laws and my wife for an evening dinner. They all got spaghetti and were less than impressed with the quality and taste. Thankfully, I decided to get their fried chicken. It was fantastic! The potatoes that I got as my side were satisfactory to pair with an entree that good. If you are... More

In town for a family graduation and decided to try this place. Having grown up in town, I remember this place being something special. What a disappointment! Run down looking restaurant in need of an overhaul! Made reservations on our drive into town, but it was obvious when we walked in that they were not necessary. Only two tables being... More

I really hate to give this place a bad review. Like a lot of people I like finding locally owned restaurants that have some character. Unfortunately that doesn't always mean it will be a great experience. I found the food here to be pretty good, but nothing spectacular. I've had good luck with steaks or fried chicken, but for me...

The Ozark House is an outstanding locally owned restaurant and , for some reason or another, we don't go there often enough. It has a Wisconsin Supper Club atmosphere, serves steaks, ribs, chicken and seafood. The ribs are always good...my wife and I went there recently and both of us had the Fried Catfish and it was excellent. The whole... More

This restaurant is primarily a steak house that serves great food in a casual, family environment. I had the prime rib and it was exceptional and generous. My wife and son both had the BBQ ribs and they too were excellent. (Warning: the full rack of ribs was too large for even our voracious 15 year old son to fully... More

Nice, small town atmosphere. The menu is very diverse. The food is outstanding! I wanted a light meal. Ordered the appetizer for two. Quite large and more than enough. I had the lite meal baked cod. It tasted like lobster! The slaw was home made, as was the bread. I wish that I were more hungry as their steaks sounded... More

I was looking for a place to go for brunch on Easter since my daughter goes to nearby ISU. What a find ! This place is great. The food was out of this world. It really felt like home having a home cooked meal. The buffet they had for Easter was phenomenal---with nice and hot green beans, corn, ham, beef,... More
