Incredible experience. From the extensive wine list to the fresh brewed coffee and the owners cognac! Started out with a good bottle of Wine decanted table side. Then we had the lobster bisque with large pieces of lobster, with a splash of cognac and some...More

Yes, I loved it. Twice. The view from out high over the lake and the friendly service rounded out a lovely meal with friends. Quite a wine list, too. Salmon over lobster risotto was also excellent.

Everything about The Blue Heron is top-notch - the atmosphere, the view, the service, the food! It's expensive but worth it (unlike other places at the lake that are expensive but NOT worth it). It is our favorite place to eat at the lake. The...More

The Blue Heron being ranked #20 out of Lake of the Ozarks restaurants is an absolute joke. It is far and away the best (and perhaps only) fine dining option in the area. Consistently great food, beautiful view, and classy atmosphere. I have eaten here...More

Where do I start? Watered down overpriced drinks, 1-2 hour wait times, cold food, and terrible service all wrapped into one dining experience! This place used to be one of the best places at the lake. Sorry to say, not any more!

The view and isolated location is perfect for a romantic dinner. Onion ring appetizer just right. The Dover sole with Morel Mushroom cream sauce is succulent heaven . Fried lobster tail a treat no picking or pealing. Service is 5 star and you pay for...More

This is a well established fine dining place at the Lake of the Ozarks. Definitely well worth the experience to try it out. The food is the best.
