Try Our Loaded Wobbly Boots Wraps

Our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant serves up the best BBQ in the Midwest, but as we've mentioned before, that's not all we are amazing at! The wide variety of options available on our daily menu is sure to please everyone in your group. 



Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach features hearty salads, Southern comfort food, black Angus burgers, steaks, seafood, and more. While not considered BBQ, many of these still get that awesome hickory-smoked treatment that we are famous for. 

Lots of customers have fallen in love with our delicious wraps. A wrap is essentially a sandwich that is served wrapped up in a flatbread rather than between two pieces of bread. Our flatbread of choice here at Wobbly Boots BBQ is a wheat tortilla. If you haven't had the pleasure of trying one out yet, take a look at the yummy goodness that we pack into them.

If you love our wings, this wrap is for you! Your choice of either grilled or breaded chicken tenders that are tossed in our hot chipotle sauce and served in a wheat tortilla with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar-jack cheese.

Grilled Turkey Wrap

The original Wobbly Boots wrap! Lightly grilled turkey breast is served in a warm wheat tortilla and joined by bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar-jack cheese, and ranch dressing. 


Turkey Avocado Wrap

Hickory smoked 100% breast of turkey is served in a wheat tortilla with avocado, avocado mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar-jack cheese.

Smoked Salmon Wrap

Delicate, house-smoked salmon is paired with lemon-caper cream cheese and served in a wheat tortilla with lettuce, tomato, and red onion. 



Try it With a Cup of Soup

Every one of those incredible wraps is served alongside one of our delicious side dishes. You can also choose to upgrade to one of our signature sides, including a cup of one of our amazing soups.




Baked Potato Soup

We serve this one seven days a week because our customers just can't seem to get enough of it! A rich and creamy soup full of chunks of potatoes and garnished with cheddar-jack cheese, crumbled bacon, and green onions.


Soup of the Day

We've always got a second soup choice available in case you want to try something new, but it changes daily so make sure to ask your server about it when you sit down. A few varieties that we have featured in the past are: Vegetable Beef, Seafood Chowder, Beer Cheese & Sausage, and good old-fashioned Chili.


Try Something New 

We cook up the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks seven days a week, but every once in a while it's good to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. If you've been looking for a new flavor for your taste buds to give a try, consider ordering one of our Wobbly Boots Roadhouse Wraps and a cup of soup. You'll be glad you did!

15 Fun Facts About the Olympic Games


Baseball season is still going strong, and of course we're all looking forward to football season, but right now all of the excitement seems to be surrounding the 2016 Summer Olympics. Every day you can watch all of the games right here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. During the slower moments, we've found a few Olympics fun facts for you to impress your friends with. Check them out!


1. The Olympic torch relay for this year's games began on April 21, 2016 and did not end until the opening ceremony on August 5. That's quite a long jog!

2. The symbol of the Olympics- 5 intertwined rings- represents the unity of the 5 continents: the Americas (North & South), Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

3. The 5 colors of the rings- blue, yellow, black, green, and red - were used because every nation that participates in the Olympic games has at least one of those colors on its own national flag.

4. The Olympic flag was adopted in 1914, but it was not flown until the 1920 Summer Olympics in Belgium. 

5. The Olympics were held every 4 years until 1994. Since then, the decision was made to separate the summer and winter events and alternate those games every 2 years. 

6. Before adding winter Olympic events in 1924, men's, women's, and pairs figure skating events were a part of the Summer Olympics in 1908 and 1920. 

7. The winter sport of ice Hockey made its Olympic debut in the 1920 summer games too.


8. In the first modern Olympics in 1896, top winners were given silver, not gold, medals. It wasn't until 1904 that the top three winners began receiving gold, silver, and bronze medals.

9. 1912 was the final year that the gold medals were actually made of pure gold. Today they are 93% silver and 6% copper, with just 6 grams of real gold.

10. The arts were included in the 1912 Stockholm Olympic games. Medals were awarded in painting, sculpture, architecture, literature, and music. The works had to be original pieces inspired by sports. Today, artists compete in their own Cultural Olympiad.

11. Golf and Rugby are the "new" games in the 2016 Summer Olympics. They have been present in the past, but were removed for a number of years each. 

12. Rio 2016 marks the first time in Olympic history that a city from South America has hosted the games. Rio beat out Chicago, Madrid, and Tokyo for the honor.

13. This year, over 10,000 athletes from 206 countries will compete in over 300 events during the 17 day's of Olympic games.

14. The United States holds the record for being the country that has won the most Olympic medals. (Go Team USA!)

15. So far this year, we are still ahead of the game! At the time this blog was written, Team USA has already earned the most medals at 31; 16 gold, 12 silver, and 12 bronze. By the time this blog is posted, we know there will be a lot more added!

Menu Showdown: Prime Rib Melt VS. The Reuben

We think every menu item that comes out of our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant kitchen is the best food in town. The kind reviews and social media comments we receive each week tell us that you guys are pretty impressed too. 

That being said, we have a tough time picking out which dishes are our favorites because every one of them is special to us in its own way. It's a lot easier for our Wobbly Boots Roadhouse customers to have a non-biased opinion, so we need your help deciding the winner of today's bout. 



Gourmet Sandwich Showdown 

We've decided to pull the today's competitors from our Gourmet Sandwiches section. These aren't your average sandwiches. They are each piled high with savory meats, incredible toppings, and extra special touches. 



Prime Rib Melt

Our mouth-watering smoked Prime Rib Dinner is only available on Friday & Saturday nights, but this amazing sandwich can be ordered for both lunch and dinner, seven days a week. 

We start with grilled sourdough bread, which is always a tasty place to begin. Then we pile on the really good stuff! Succulent, house-smoked, shaved prime rib is topped with Swiss cheese. As if those flavors weren't enough to tickle your taste buds, it even comes with a side of our house-made horsey sauce for an extra kick! Loads of flavor packed into one sandwich. 


Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks, BBQ, Gourmet Sandwiches



Reubens

This sandwich is an American classic that most restaurants attempt, but we believe we have mastered! One taste and it will make its way to the top of your favorites list. 

It contains all of the delicious main ingredients that you would expect between two grilled slices of marbled rye bread: warm sauerkraut, creamy 1000 Island dressing, melted Swiss cheese, and of course, our very own house-smoked corned beef. 

That's not all though! We've taken this classic a step further and put our own spin on it. Instead of the corned beef, you can order it with a couple of our other smoked meats: lean turkey breast or sausage.

Have you picked your favorite yet? 

Those descriptions are nearly enough to choose your favorite, but visiting our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and ordering up one of these amazing gourmet sandwiches is the best way to really know your vote is the right one. 

They each come with your choice of one of our home-style side dishes, so make sure you arrive with a big appetite. We'll see you soon at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, and we can't wait to hear what you think!

Scotch Lover? You Will Be With Our Tasty Cocktails!

Wednesday, July 27, 2016 is National Scotch Day, so this week is the perfect time to highlight the tasty scotches we have at the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you aren't already a fan, we bet one taste of our Wobbly Boots Roadhouse creations will turn you into one. 



Scotch Whisky, Whiskey, or Bourbon? 

First of all, a little clarification. All whiskies are made with some type of fermented grain mash. There are slight differences to the recipes of each, but a big factor in what they are called is the location of where it is made. 

Here in the United States, we have whiskey and bourbon. Generally, whiskey (with an -ey on the end) is from Tennessee, and Bourbon must be made in Kentucky. Irish whiskey must be from... you guessed it- Ireland. 

Scotch whisky (no "e" in the name) can only be titled scotch if it is made in Scotland. The main ingredient is malted barley, and it must be aged in an oak cask for at least 3 years. The longer it sits in there, the finer the scotch.  




What'll You Have?

The people that order scotch regularly usually drink it straight, on the rocks, or with a little water added. If you would like to try this incredible libation in a mixed drink, have one of these:

Rob Roy
Basically, it's a classic Manhattan, but made with Scotch whisky instead of rye or Tennessee whiskey. We add sweet vermouth and bitters, then garnish it with a lemon or orange twist. 

Funky Monkey
We've taken the classic Moscow Mule and switched out the vodka for our delicious Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch. That, combined with ginger beer and lime in a copper mug, will have you wanting a refill! 



You will find a good variety of the best scotches behind our bar. Among these are:
  • Dewar's
  • Glenfiddich
  • Chivas
  • Johnnie Walker - Black & Red
  • Monkey Shoulder
Do you have a favorite Scotch whisky cocktail? Tell us about it. If we've got all of the ingredients behind the bar, one of our talented bartenders will be happy to whip one up for you. 

Give Scotch a Try

These drinks make a wonderful addition to the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, and they are perfect for a drink after dinner too. Give one of these cocktails a try the next time you come in to eat at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. National Scotch Day makes this week the perfect time to discover this great drink! You just may find something brand new to love once you have a taste.

The Barrett Restaurant Group - 3 Lake Area Dining Spots to Enjoy

The best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is a member of a very prestigious bunch of fantastic dining establishments - the Barrett Restaurant Group. This is made up of ourselves, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, as well as our two sister waterfront restaurants: Dog Days Bar & Grill and Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. 


Lake of the Ozarks, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Dog Days Bar & Grill, Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina

Connye Griffin recently wrote a wonderful article about the two brothers behind these awesome places, Mark & Brian Barrett. You can read that article at LakeExpo.com. Today our blog will focus on giving you the details about what makes all of these restaurants similar, yet incredibly different in their own special ways. 


Dog Days Bar & Grill

The first restaurant that Mark & Brian opened up in the lake area was this incredible waterfront establishment, originally known as Salty Dog. It has grown a lot since it began in 1993. This is a great place to enjoy a nice dinner with your family by the water, join a group of friends for a fun afternoon of dining and drinking, or dance the night away with whatever band is playing on one of their two stages. 



Centrally located just west of the Grand Glaize Bridge in the heart of Osage Beach, Dog Days is easy to get to by both car and boat. They have even teamed up with BomBay Boat Rental Company, who has a rental location for boats and jet skis at the Dog Days docks.

It is home to the best live entertainment at the Lake of the Ozarks, hosting popular events including AquaPalooza, the Canine Cannonball, and the Spring MDA In-Water Boat Show. You can enjoy talented musicians nearly every single night there too.



On the menu, you will find a wonderful array of items; steak, crab legs, signature burgers, gourmet tacos, incredible appetizers, amazing entrees, and so much more. Pair any of those with the delicious frozen drinks coming out of the bars, like Pina Coladas and Rum Runners, and you've got a meal you won't soon forget. 



Dog Days is also one of the few places in the lake area to offer a late night menu on the weekends, available from 10 pm - midnight every Friday and Saturday night. They also come up with specialty menus many times throughout the summer that are only available for a month or so at a time. Lots of variety and loads of fun, seven days a week, spring through fall every year. 


Wobbly Boots Roadhouse

After successfully running Dog Days for years, The Boot was born. We started in a small building, but have since relocated twice due the the fact that people love our hickory-smoked flavor so much, those other buildings simply weren't big enough to contain us! 



We now have room to host lots of large groups, as well as smaller ones. Even with the additional space, you may have to wait in line occasionally for a table. Folks that give us a try just can't wait to come back for more. Our BBQ recipes have earned numerous national awards from some of the most prestigious BBQ contests around the country. 

This is largely due to our mouth-watering hybrid style of cooking, which pulls inspiration from the BBQ meccas of the U.S.A.: Kansas City, St. Louis, Texas, Memphis, and the deep south. All of our meats are slow-smoked over hickory, and our amazing BBQ sauce is made in house from our own secret recipe. 




You won't find a better chicken wing anywhere around, and all of our other hickory-smoked meats are used in a variety of fantastic dishes throughout our menu. These meats include: classic pork spare ribs, baby back ribs, hand-pulled pork, beef brisket, turkey breast, pit ham, chicken, and sausage links. 

That's not all we do well though. You will find lots of non-BBQ items on our menu too: the Cowboy Cobb Salad, Smoked Meatloaf, Catfish BLT, hand-pattied 100% black Angus burgers, and every weekend, the best Prime Rib in town. 



We have a full bar, featuring 21 draft beer selections and our incredible Moscow Mule creations. While  you are enjoying an ice cold beer and some savory BBQ, catch your favorite sports on our 21 televisions strategically placed around the restaurant, including the giant projection screen behind our Wobbly Boots stage. That stage often hosts some of the most talented musicians in the lake area too. The Boot is a great place to hang out with some great people, have an incredible time, and enjoy some of the best food you'll ever eat. 


Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina

The next to join our little family was another waterfront bar and restaurant in Osage Beach, and this one even came with its own marina. Shorty Pants Lounge boasts a full menu on which most of the items have a true Cajun flavor, featuring rubs and spices straight out of Louisiana. Authentic Creole cuisine served lakeside. 



This restaurant is one that the entire family can truly enjoy. They offer a terrific kids' menu in addition to many specialty creations that the grownups will love. A few of the more popular items are the world famous Crab Cakes, Gumbo, Shrimp Etoufee, Shrimp, Catfish, mouth-watering steaks and award winning baby back ribs. Dine next to the water's edge or in the air-conditioned indoor dining room, or kick back by the fireplace outside and watch the game.  



The outdoor tiki bar and indoor bar both offer legendary cocktails like hand-muddled Mojitos and their famous Cajun Bloody Mary. There is a full selection of ice cold beers and fantastic wines to enjoy with the new cheese, sausage, and fruit appetizer plates. 

A short walk down the dock will bring you to Shorty Pants Marina. Voted the lake area's Best Gas Dock 6 years in a row, you can fill up your watercraft with gas, then step inside to visit the C-store and pick up everything that you will need for a fun day on the water; snacks, drinks, ice, oil for the boat, koozies, sunglasses, Shorty Pants gear, and much more. 



You can rent a dock slip for boats up to 56-feet, plus enjoy many wonderful marina amenities while you are there. Need a place to stay while you visit the lake? They also have two fantastic Lake of the Ozarks vacation rentals to stay in right next door the the restaurant and marina. 


That's not all!

Those are the three amazing restaurants that you can enjoy at the Lake of the Ozarks, but in 2015 a second Wobbly Boots Roadhouse location was added in Clive, Iowa near Des Moines. Those lucky Iowa residents have their very own taste of the lake, right at home. 



The Barrett Restaurant Group also offers catering, combining the delicious flavors of all three of their incredible restaurants. You just give us a call, tell us what you need, and we'll come up with the perfect menu and deliver it to you, hot and tasty.  

The next time you are searching for the best restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, visit one of the Barretts' marvelous dining establishments. No matter which one you end up at, you can't go wrong. Now that you know all about them, work a trip to each one into your next visit. We can't wait to serve you!
