Our Next Bourbon Pairing Dinner Features Wild Turkey

It's time once again to reserve a ticket for Wobbly Boots Roadhouse's next Bourbon Pairing Dinner! This is an incredible evening at our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant with a very special menu, each course paired with a delectable bourbon. This month those bourbons will be from the Wild Turkey family. 



Reserve Your Tickets Early
This delicious evening will happen on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. Dinner is served in our private room next to the fireplace and will consist of two seatings - 5:30 pm and 8:15 pm. Tickets are $50 each, and you can pick yours up in advance at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. We highly suggest getting them early because seating will be limited and this event could very likely sell out!



Wild Turkey Family Bourbons
Wild Turkey is an authentic Kentucky bourbon that has stayed true to a tradition that dates back before Prohibition. They stand apart from other bourbons because they use only premium ingredients to create it, select barrels to age it in, and lots and lots of patience before they break into it. 

Straight bourbon only has to be aged 2 years to qualify for that title, but Wild Turkey is never poured until it is has been aged at least 5 years, and often it's longer than that. Every bourbon produced by this incredible company is aged inside an American White Oak barrel with a No 4 "alligator" char, which is the deepest available. This process lends to their signature amber color and bold, rich flavor. The water used comes from the Kentucky River, which is naturally filtered through limestone, removing iron and other impurities. Their original yeast strain is still used to this day, and you will never find a genetically modified grain used to make their signature bourbon. It's all non-GMO, natural, and authentic.

Wild Turkey's master distiller, Jimmy Russell, is the world's longest-tenured active master distiller and has been at it for over 60 years. His son, Eddie Russell, was promoted to master distiller alongside his dad 3 years ago and has been with Wild Turkey for 35 years himself. They are the only father and son duo of bourbon master distillers in the world, and each has created some of Wild Turkey's most amazing varieties. During the bourbon pairing dinner at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, these are the bourbons we will be picking from. 

Russell’s Reserve
The Wild Turkey Master Distiller drinks this as his everyday whiskey. Small-batched and aged 10 years, the juice is worlds different than regular Wild Turkey. It blooms nicely and becomes quite floral with just a small amount of water. Holds well in cocktails, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better sipping whiskey for the price.


Wild Turkey 101

Sweet notes of vanilla, maple, and cinnamon are nicely contrasted with oakiness, spice, and char. ... Spice, pepper, and oak dominate over the palate's sweeter notes. The alcohol taste is definitely more noticeable in Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon than the company's other brands.

Wild Turkey 81
A lower strength bourbon from Wild Turkey, bottled at 81 proof (40.5% abv) and created by Eddie Russell, this has a high rye content in the mash bill and is aged in casks with a heavy char - the result of which is huge flavor and complexity without the same heat as the 101 proof.

Wild Turkey American Honey
A quality bourbon liqueur made with Wild Turkey Kentucky Bourbon and pure honey. American Honey was named as the World's Best Whisky Liqueur three years in a row.

Wild Turkey Rye
Straight Rye Whiskey is an 81 proof (40.5% alcohol) ode to America's first distilled spirit: rye whiskey. When making Wild Turkey Rye, that deeper “alligator” char gives it extra flavor. Big, broad vanilla and spice notes burst through without changing the bold rye taste.

Wild Turkey Rare Breed
Wild Turkey Rare Breed was upped in strength to 56.4% in 2015. Blended from barrels of 6-12-year-old bourbon and bottled at barrel proof with no added water, Rare Breed has a rich, yet mellow flavor despite its high alcohol content.




Enjoy a Guided Experience
As always for these one-of-a-kind bourbon pairing dinners, we will have an expert on hand to guide you through each course of pairings. Specific bourbons are served alongside dishes specifically created to bring out the glorious flavors that make each variety special. Whether you are a foodie, a bourbon fanatic, or possibly a bit of both, this is an evening that you do not want to miss! 

Seating is limited, so either get yourself on over to our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks soon to pick up your tickets or give us a call at 573-348-2277 so that we can reserve them for you.

The Best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks Just Got Better!

Many people already enjoy joining us for the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks for the great company, a bit of relaxation, and some incredible food and drink specials. It's a perfect way to escape, if only for a few hours, from the stress of a busy week. As good as our Happy Hour has always been before, this week Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach made it even better! (Why? Because you deserve it!) 



Weekdays + Sunday!
As of February 5, 2018, the hours haven't changed for our incredible Happy Hour, but we do have a few delicious extras in store for you when you come in between 3-6 pm every Monday-Friday, plus all day each Sunday. (Yes, you read that correctly, from the time we open the doors until the time we close them every Sunday!) 

Whether you're looking for a place to unwind after a long day at work or you want to enjoy an awesome Sunday before heading back to the job when Monday rolls around, we've got you covered! Invite your co-workers, meet a client, catch up with old friends, or come alone and make some new ones. No reason necessary, just show up and get ready to have a good time! 

Drink Specials
Our drink specials include $1 off all well drinks, wine, and draft beer. That was always the weekday special, but on Sundays, it only extended to beer. Not anymore! Just in case you're not in a beer mood over the weekend, you can get a discount on well cocktails and wine too, just like Monday-Friday.  



Food Specials
Happy Hours are always better when you have something tasty to enjoy along with those drink specials. You are welcome to order anything that you like from our regular menu, but we've also got a few great deals on some popular items that you're sure to love. During Happy Hour, you can order: 

  • Pulled Pork Sliders - 3 for $6
  • Shaved Prime Rib Sliders - 3 for $9
  • Large Nachos - $2 off

Who Needs Happy Hour? 
At some point in time, everyone finds one reason or another that Happy Hour is a great idea. It's a perfect time to catch up with old friends, and a wonderful place to meet a few new ones. You can meet up with co-workers to get to know each other a bit better outside of the office, and it's even a nice, casual atmosphere to meet clients and possibly do a little networking. 

Right now the Winter Olympics are in full swing, so more than likely there is going to be some incredible sport to watch on our 21 TVs and the giant projection screen, not to mention all the great sports you can enjoy during our all-day-Sunday Happy Hours throughout the year. With the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl coming up this Saturday (February 17, 2018) you can join us for some "hair of the dog" to recuperate during Sunday Happy Hour, plus get it all at discount prices! 



We try to make everyone happy every moment they spend at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant, but during Happy Hour, we give you a bit more incentive than usual to have a great time! The next time you're in the mood for a break from your every day, come spend some time with us here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse

The Best Stop on the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl 2018

The 2018 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl has 15 incredible stops signed up this year, but the most exciting one by far will be at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach! We've got the best live music, the best dance floor, the best food tent, and the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks. It's all happening on Saturday, February 17 starting at 4 pm and going all night long! 



Quick, Tasty Food and Delicious Drinks
We'll be serving our full menu for lunch when we open at 11 am, but around 4 pm the kitchen will be shutting down and we'll be moving things around so that there's plenty of room to party. You won't go hungry though, because we'll have a food tent set up outside so that you can grab a quick bite to eat to give you the energy you need to tackle this incredible pub crawl. Order something when you get here, or get it to enjoy on the bus before your next stop. We'll be serving:
  • Pulled Pork
  • Burgers
  • Brats  
Indoors will be all about the beverages! Our talented bartenders will be working frantically to make sure that each and every one of you never goes thirsty. You'll be working up quite a thirst on our dance floor too with the entertainment we've got planned for you!  


Live Music 4 pm-Close
Pub crawl buses start going at 4 pm, and that's also when the incomparable lake area favorite, Mr. Dale Blue, will take the Wobbly Boots BBQ stage! You'll want to be here early during the pub crawl to enjoy the always exciting show that he puts on from 4-8 pm. Of course, you'll want to be here later in the evening too because we've got the amazing DJ Vinyl Richy picking up the party from 8 pm-close after the Barefoot Entertainer is done.    



Pre-Party at Dog Days
Dog Days Bar & Grill is opening their doors for a rare winter appearance on Friday, February 16 for a great big Mardi Gras Pub Crawl Pre-Party! They are bringing in 2 unbelievable live music acts to get the party weekend started off right. First up, the 90's hip-hop band The Dope Ass Sneakers will take the stage at 8 pm. They will be followed by another lake area favorite group that thrilled the crowd at AquaPalooza, The Mixtapes

Doors will open at 7 pm, and space is limited so you don't want to wait until the last minute to pick up your tickets. You can get them in advance right here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse for $10 each. If they're not all sold out early, you can purchase them at Dog Days that night at the door for $15 each. 



Need a Place to Stay? 

If you are in need of an awesome place to stay for pub crawl weekend (or anytime for that matter) with plenty of room for lots of friends, you should check out the 2 amazing vacation rental houses located next to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina on Osage Beach. They are available year-round, and at the time this was written, still available during the pub crawl. (But act fast!) 

The White House sleeps up to 8 people comfortably, and the Red House can house up to 16 guests. Both houses are lakeside and offer all the comforts of home with spacious rooms, a full kitchen, and even a washer and dryer. You can book your vacation rental house online through the Shorty Pants website.

We Bet These Delicious Dishes Top Your Favorite Football Foods List!

The football game of the year is nearly here, and the game-watching experience is always better when you've got food from the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks to munch on. There are two ways to do that. You can get your order to go if you're watching at home, or you can join us at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse to take part in our great big Football Party featuring Happy Hour specials all day long! Either way, here are a few of the delicious dishes you'll want to have nearby. 



Wobbly Wings
These are always at the top of everyone's favorite foods list, even when no games are on! Our juicy, jumbo chicken wings are coated with our house dry rub and then slow-roasted in our hickory pit to perfection! They are available in small orders to enjoy on your own, or big platefuls to share with your fellow football fans. (And especially for this weekend, they are a part of our Happy Hour specials when you dine in-house!) 

Our wings are amazing served plain, but you can also choose to have them coated in one of our savory sauces for an added boost of flavor! 
  • BBQ - Our house recipe sauce, which is a great addition to anything!
  • Original - A mustard-based sauce like no other. 
  • Chipotle Buffalo - Our version of traditional Buffalo.
  • Teriyaki - Sweet meets heat - Delicious!
  • Trashed - Our smoked wings deep-fried before serving. 

Ribbies and Wings
The best of both worlds! This appetizer features 2 of our most popular items on one plate - 4 individual pork spare ribs and 6 Wobbly Wings. If you want to up the ante even more, give our Wobbly Boots Sampler a try. That plate contains 4 Wobbly Wings and 4 spare ribs, PLUS 4 onion rings and 4 bacon-wrapped shrimp! Enough to share, but you don't have to!  



BBQ Pork Nachos
Nachos and sports seem to go extremely well together, and the fact that ours are covered in hickory-smoked meat makes them even better! (This delicious dish is also a part of our Happy Hour specials. More on that at the end of the blog.) We take crispy tortilla chips and cover them in spicy queso, then top that with pulled pork, baked beans, cheddar-jack cheese, tomatoes, and onions. 



Texas Fries
Some people prefer cheese-covered fries to cheese-covered chips, and this appetizer is especially for them! It's a plateful of curly fries smothered in spicy queso cheese, bacon, green onions, and cheddar-jack cheese, all served with a side of jalapenos.



Black Angus Burgers
We don't just do great BBQ. Our burgers are the best in the Midwest! All of them are made from 100% hand-pattied Black Angus ground chuck, cooked on a flat-top iron, and served on a fresh kaiser bun with lettuce, tomato, and onion. You are welcome to create your own using the many toppings we have available, or you can pick one of these fantastic burger creations.
  • Hickory Bacon BBQ Cheeseburger - A half-pound burger with our house-recipe BBQ sauce, hickory-smoked bacon, and good ol' American cheese. 
  • El Diablo Burger - topped with ghost pepper cheese, bacon, jalapenos, and our zesty 6-pepper sauce. 
  • Beale Street Burger - topped with pulled pork and creamy cole slaw
  • Ham, Mushroom, Swiss Burger - topped with pit ham, sauteed mushrooms, and Swiss cheese.
  • Black & Bleu Burger - made with Cajun seasoning and topped with bleu cheese crumbles.
  • Patty Melt - topped with sauteed onions and Swiss cheese, served on grilled marbled rye bread.  

Happy Hour All Day Sunday!
As we mentioned earlier, you can order any of the mouthwatering foods from our menu to go if you are hosting a party at your place. If instead you join us at the best place to watch sports at the Lake of the Ozarks, we've got some special things in store for you! 

Since the big game happens on a Sunday, and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse hosts Happy Hour all day every Sunday, those two wonderful things have joined forces! Not only during the game, but all day long, we are offering: 

  • $1 off all draft beers
  • Pulled Pork Sliders - $2 each or 3 for $5
  • Large BBQ Nachos for the price of a small order
  • **BONUS SPECIAL - In honor of the the big game, we are bringing back Happy Hour Wobbly Wings! (Dine-in only) You can order 8 Wobbly Wings for just $5!   


Make the day easy on yourself and let us take care of planning the party! Join us at Wobbly Boots BBQ on Sunday, February 4, 2018 for our Super Party this Sunday. We've got 21 TVs, plus the giant projection screen, amazing Happy Hour specials, and an awesome crowd to watch the game with! What more could you ask for?

How Do YOU Watch the Biggest Football Game of the Year? We Have Some Suggestions...

Now that we know who will be playing in Super Bowl LII on Sunday, February 4, 2018 (the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Patriots, in case you missed it) it's time to decide how and where you are going to enjoy the big game. There's going to be an all-day party here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach, but if you're throwing a party of your own at home, pick up some of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks to serve to your fellow football fans.




Super Party at the Boot
Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 pm, but since our Sunday Happy Hour lasts all day long, our party starts at 11:00 am when we open the doors. You might want to get here early to make sure you get a good spot, but since we have 21 TVs positioned all around the restaurant plus that giant projection screen, every single seat is actually a great one! 

Our regular Happy Hour specials will be in place, and as an added bonus, we're bringing back our Happy Hour Wing Deal! A sporting event this special deserves a little something extra. In addition to our regular menu full of mouthwatering hickory-smoked goodness, our Happy Hour specials include: 
  • 8 Wobbly Wings for $5 (in-house only)
  • Large BBQ Pork Nachos for the price of a small order
  • Pulled Pork Sliders - $2 each or 3 for $5
  • $1 off all draft beers (and we've got a HUGE selection of beers on tap!)  

Serve Wobbly Boots BBQ at Your House Party
We realize that some of you are planning to throw your own football parties at home. If you truly want to relax and enjoy the game (or the halftime show and commercials, whichever...) skip the cooking and instead order all of your refreshments from the best catering at the Lake of the Ozarks. Not only can we offer you bulk servings of our hickory-smoked meats, homestyle side dishes, and amazing appetizers, but so much more! 



The Boot is a part of the Barrett Restaurant Group, which also includes our sister restaurants, Dog Days Bar & Grill and Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. Those waterfront restaurants may be closed this time of year, but we share all of their culinary secrets! 

Give our experienced staff a call at 573-348-2277 and let them know what types of food you would like to offer your guests. They will come up with a customized menu especially for you. If you'd like for us to deliver everything, arrangements will need to be made in advance. This is done on a first-come, first-served basis, so don't wait! 



No matter where you decide to watch the big game, it's going to be a lot more enjoyable with some of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks on your plate to snack on throughout the game. Join us for Happy Hour pricing all day long at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse and let us serve you, or let us cater your party at home. Both ways guarantee that even if you're favorite team doesn't win, you'll be full and satisfied when the game is over.

Stay Warm This Winter at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse

Winter has finally made a strong appearance, making it difficult to want to leave the house at all. Freezing temperatures and lots of snow may be on the ground outside, but inside the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, we can make you feel like it's like summer inside with our cozy atmosphere and award-winning BBQ. 


It's Too Cold For You To Grill
One of the things you probably miss a lot in the winter is being able to throw something tasty on the grill in your own backyard. We can give you the flavors you miss with our mouthwatering hickory-smoked meats any time of the year, and you don't have to brave getting frostbite by thawing out your grill. 

Our unique hybrid-style BBQ, influenced by the BBQ meccas of the U.S.A. (Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas) is one reason we're known to have the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks. Another is the fact that we slow-smoke our meats over hickory until they reach the perfect, savory, full-flavored taste you simply can't resist.  Let us do the cooking, and you just pretend that it's as nice outside as it is inside. You can even grab a table on our "porch" to make the illusion a little easier to imagine.    



It's Warm & Cozy Inside
Once you brave the walk from the car into Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, we'll have you warmed up in no time. On the coldest of days, we may even have that nice fireplace going for an even homier atmosphere. A hot bowl of one of our amazing soups is the perfect starter for warming up your body, or possibly one of our spicier dishes to really get your blood flowing. 



Feel the "Heat" 
If you need to warm up your own insides quickly, those spicy dishes we mentioned should do the trick right away. The following menu items offer just the right amount of "kick" to be deliciously enjoyable. 

6-Pepper Steak Po' Boy
Thin-shaved smoked prime rib and melted Swiss cheese smothered in our zesty 6-pepper sauce. 

Hot Cheesy Stripper
Your choice of grilled or breaded chicken tenders tossed in our hot chipotle sauce and topped with melted provolone cheese on a hoagie roll. 

El Diablo Burger
A real mouth-burner! Topped with ghost pepper cheese, bacon, jalapenos, and our zesty 6-pepper sauce. 



We've Got All The Games
Football playoffs are still going strong, with the Super Bowl not too far away. As amazing as it is to see those games in person if you get the chance, enjoying them from the comfort of our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant is a great alternative. With 21 TVs conveniently located all around the restaurant plus the giant projection screen, there's not a bad seat in the house, and you won't have to thaw yourself out when the game is over! (We do recommend warming up your car before you go, though.) 



If you can handle the cold long enough to get yourself to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, we'll take care of making you feel warm, cozy, and comfortable while you are here. When you're ready to leave, you'll be full and satisfied, and hopefully that warm glow you get from our award-winning BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks will last long enough to get you all the way home without feeling too chilly!

January is Soup Month & We've Got the Best at the Boot!

January in mid-Missouri is a very cold time of year, so the fact that it has been designated as National Soup Month is a wonderful thing to hear. Just imagine... sitting all warm and cozy inside our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant enjoying a great big, steaming bowl of savory soup... YUM! In addition to creating the best BBQ you've ever tasted, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach makes some incredible soups too. 



2 Choices Every Day
Each time that you come to our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, you will have 2 savory soups to choose from. These include an always-on-the-menu customer favorite and a daily surprise.  

Baked Potato Soup
The recipe for our Baked Potato Soup is so absolutely incredible, this delicious dish simply had to be made available year-round, 7 days a week. It's 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
Just in case you're not in the mood for our regular soup, we also offer an equally appetizing Soup of the Day. Just ask your server what type of soup surprise our cooks have lovingly made for that particular day. Some of the flavors they've created in the past include: 

  • Beer Cheese & Sausage Soup
  • Cheeseburger Soup
  • Tortellini Soup
  • Creamy Cajun Chicken & Noodle Soup
  • Ham & Bean Soup
  • Vegetable Beef Soup
  • Chili
  • White Bean Chili  


How Will You Have Yours?
You are welcome to come in specifically for our fantastic soup as your main meal, or you can enjoy it along with another mouthwatering item from our menu as a premium side dish. There is also the Sandwich & Soup/Salad Combo option. It features your choice of 2 of the following 3 meal items. 

  • Bowl of one of our featured soups
  • Crisp garden salad
  • A grilled sourdough sandwich
    • Turkey & Swiss Melt
    • Ham & Swiss Melt
    • 4-Cheese Grilled Cheese   


If You Like Baked Potato Soup...
...then you might also want to try our scrumptious Loaded Baker. This isn't your average baked potato to enjoy as a side dish, but rather a great big savory meal all on its own!  

We begin with a huge baked potato, and then we stuff it chock-full of one of our mouthwatering, hickory-smoked meats. You get to choose between Pulled Pork, Beef Brisket, Pit Ham, or Turkey Breast. Next, it gets topped with crumbled bacon, green onions, and cheddar-jack cheese, and you are welcome to add some of the Boot's house-recipe BBQ sauce too. You definitely need to come in hungry to tackle this tasty dish!  



So who out there is ready to celebrate soup month with Wobbly Boots Roadhouse? We take pride in every single item that comes out of the kitchen at our Lake of the Ozarks bar & restaurant, including the delicious soups we make available for your enjoyment daily. Try them alone or alongside another tasty menu item. Either way, you're sure to leave satisfied!
