Our family of 5 really enjoyed our casual evening here. Pizza and salad was great - the dressing was awesome!! Dirty martini (with Titos) may have been one of the best I've had (so I had two). We ate outside. Even with heat and humidity...More

There are more expensive lakeside venues at Lake Ozark but none with better food and better view. Why throw good money on cache when you can lay out a couple of twenties for exquisite food and consider the world from a superior lakeside perch? The...More

Server, Alexa, was awesome. Clean and well themed, but for the price, the portions were small even for the dinner portions.

Thanks for letting me know Troy, portion size is not something we ever have complaints about... I will look into it.

Had supper there on a Saturday. Busy place. Great service and great Cajun Shrimp Alfredo. Got pizza to go on Sunday night and it was OK, not great. Kind of expensive.

This place has delicious food and an awesome view of the lake! Not lake front, if that's what you're looking for, it sits high on a cliff overlooking the lake with a beautiful view! They don't just have pizza, which is what some of our...More

It was a regular menu item many years ago. We have not run it as a special in some time. Perhaps we should, I'll discuss with the staff. Thanks for the question.

The truth is, you can get pizza and pasta lots of places these days.  We know that, that’s why our mission is to become your favorite restaurant!  So how do we do that? With Gourmet Pizza, Pasta, World Famous House Salad and legendary service!  The atmosphere is unpretentious, fun and “Lake Casual” so please, don’t violate our dress code.  And oh by the way, Gourmet refers to our fresh ingredients, secret hand-crafted recipes and the love we put into every dish, not the price…
Our pizza is thin crust with dough made from scratch.  (Hand-tossed available at the Osage Beach location)  Only the finest meats, cheeses and freshest vegetables adorn the top.  Since most of the pasta recipes originate from “The Hill” area of St. Louis you can expect to find many regional favorites like, Toasted Ravioli, Baked Mostaccioli, Cannelloni con Bianco and Lasagna as well as several house specialty pastas.  But, if there is one stand-out item on the menu it has to be the House Salad.  Cold, crisp and fresh, a blend of Iceberg and Romaine lettuce, diced red peppers, green onions and provel cheese tossed in a red wine vinegar based creamy Italian dressing and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
Enjoy outside dining with a beautiful view of the lake at the Lake Ozark location, only 2 miles west of Bagnell Dam Blvd., on Horseshoe Bend Pkwy., or enjoy the Big Game at the Osage Beach location across the street from Dierberg’s at the west entrance to the Outlet Mall.
Happy Hour is Monday through Friday, 3-6 p.m., with great drink specials and half price appetizers.
