Let Us Cook For Your Holiday Parties This Season

All of those upcoming holiday celebrations are going to be tons of fun, but being the one in charge of all of the shopping, cleaning, cooking, and serving can turn some of that excitement into stress. Make it all a lot easier on yourself by having the best caterers at the Lake of the Ozarks take care of most of that for you! No matter what you are celebrating, or the size of your event, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has got you covered.  



Our Delicious Catering Service
Not only do we offer the mouth-watering menu items from our own Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant, but as a part of the Barrett Restaurant Group, we can also offer you the culinary talents of the people that create the delicious cuisine offered at Dog Days Bar & Grill and Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. That means you will have a very diverse selection of tasty treats to offer your party guests. 

Our creative chefs will work with you to develop a customized menu, especially catered to your event. We can work up something scrumptious for breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktail hour, seminar breaks, office parties... you name it! Size doesn't matter either, because we can handle groups as small as a few friends all the way up to a giant gathering of 500 people. 

We'll Come To You
Once you've decided on a menu, we'll lovingly prepare it, pack it into our awesome catering van, and deliver everything to your celebration, ready to eat. Your group is going to get so excited when they see our van pull up in front of the building!   



Simply Grab It To Go
If you don't necessarily need delivery, but want to leave the cooking to us, call up and order a few things to go. Just let us know what time you will be picking it up, and we'll make sure that it is done just in time for you to grab it and head on over to your party. 

Bring Your Group To The Boot
Here's an even more enticing idea... host your party at Wobbly Boots BBQ! We can put your group in their own private room right here at the restaurant. It has a cozy fireplace and a few televisions in case someone wants to watch the game. We'll set the room up for you, cook the food, serve it, clear away the plates, and even clean the room once the party is over. All you have to do is make the reservation, choose the menu, and simply show up and have fun with all of your guests.


Book Your Party Today!
As soon as you decide on a date for your party, give us a call at 573-348-2277 and get your event on our catering calendar. All of our catering at the Lake of the Ozarks is done on a first come, first served basis, so reserve your date before we're all booked up. 

We will need a final guest count one week prior to the event. After that, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and let Wobbly Boots Roadhouse serve you and your holiday guests the most delicious meal you've ever tasted. Save your own energy for enjoying that party!

Locally Made Moonshine Cocktails from Ozark Distillery at the Boot

Apparently, the day before Thanksgiving is National Tie One On Day. While we don't encourage over-indulgence, you will find a large selection of delicious cocktails to enjoy from the bar at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant. Among these are a few incredible specialty drinks made from the product of a local, family-owned business - Ozark Distillery. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is the perfect place to give their amazing moonshine a try.

Ozark Distillery Moonshine
Camden County's only legal distillery ever happens to be located right here in Osage Beach. They produce authentic Ozark moonshine made with Missouri-grown corn. Traditional methods are used to hand grind the grain and mash using a 4 hour process, and each batch is hand-crafted without adding sugar to the all grain mash. It then ferments for 5-7 days, and that's when the magic happens. Their efforts recently earned Ozark Distillery's Corn Whiskey Moonshine a silver medal at the American Distilling Institute Competition.

They've gotten creative and added some pretty tasty flavors to their line of products. Real fruit is used to infuse many of them, as well as other natural ingredients like real vanilla beans. Some of your taste choices are: Apple Pie, Vanilla Bean, Blackberry, and Sweet Tea.

More Than Moonshine
They have created several flavored moonshines, but if that isn't your drink of choice, they also make vodka and bourbon whiskey at their Lake of the Ozarks distillery. Both are made with Missouri corn. The bourbon uses more Missouri items to get its flavor, including limestone-rich Missouri water and barrels made from Missouri white oak. Those barrels just happen to come from another small, family-owned business located right here in this great state too.  

Moonshine Cocktails

Ozark Distillery has come up with a few tasty mixed drinks containing their various moonshines, and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is proud to serve them. Swing by the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks and order up "The Wobbly Boot" which is their awesome Blackberry Moonshine mixed with lemonade. 

The Vanilla Bean Moonshine makes an amazing vanilla Coke, and if you mix it with root beer you've got all the yummy flavor of a root beer float, but with an added kick! Of course, they are all great simply poured over ice too! 

Join us for a drink!
Wobbly Boots Roadhouse will be closed on Thanksgiving day, but we're opening the bar up at 7:00 pm. Come on by, catch some football with us, and enjoy one of the delicious drinks we've mentioned in today's blog. We'll be serving them up all weekend long too, along with all of your menu favorites. You may be able to get Ozark Distillery Moonshine at other spots in the lake area, but you can only enjoy it alongside the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks when you have it right here with us. See you soon!

Local Kids Benefit From the Gala of Trees Holiday Event

The Annual Gala of Trees, which is making it's move to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse this year, is not only a fun way to pick up some incredibly unique holiday decor for your home, but it's also a wonderful way to lend a hand to some children that might not otherwise get to enjoy Christmas this year. Your favorite Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant is teaming up with other local people to help out the Lake of the Ozarks Idiots Club and the Lake Ozark Rotary's Candyland program to make this season bright for many local kids.




The Gala of Trees

This fun Lake of the Ozarks annual event was formerly hosted at Bootleggers Sports Book & Grill, but this year Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is extremely proud to have inherited such a marvelous event. It all starts with a kickoff party on Thursday, November 17 to unveil the decorated wreaths and trees, and then the silent auction will take place from Thursday night until Saturday night, November 19. Dale Blue will be here to entertain the crowd on Saturday while we find out who the lucky winners are! 

We explained the big details in last week's blog "Join us For The 7th Annual Gala of Trees," but here are the basics. Various businesses have volunteered to decorate trees and wreaths donated by Lake Regional Hospital with all kinds of unique and exciting decorations. People from the lake area are encouraged to come in, check them all out, and then bid on their favorites. Winning bidders will get to take these pre-decorated beauties home with them when the auction is over. 

Here is a peek at last year's Gala of Trees, followed by a little more information about the wonderful organizations that are donating the money raised to many local families needing a hand this holiday season.





Candyland
The 33rd Annual Candyland at the Lake of the Ozarks opens on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 in the Stonecrest Mall, the day before the Gala of Trees at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. It is put on by the Lake Ozark Rotary to promote generosity during the Christmas season through gift donations for underprivileged children in the Lake area. People are encouraged to visit Candyland, pick one of more candy canes with children's Christmas wishes on them, purchase the items, and then return them for Candyland's Rotarian volunteers to wrap and deliver. 

Proceeds from the Gala of Trees silent auction sales will go toward buying some of these gifts. The Lake Ozark Rotary's mission is for leaders to come together with a shared vision and cooperation making a difference through service above self.  



The Idiots Club
This group describes themselves as "a charity dedicated to helping youth in need in the Lake area, while in the pursuit of silliness!" They make our community a better place, and they do it in a way that allows them to have fun while they're at it. The Lake of the Ozarks Idiots Club was founded by a couple of retired educators, Denny and Danna Hiner, who witnessed firsthand the problems that students dealt with on a daily basis. 

According to their website, currently over 60% of the children in the lake area live at or below the federal poverty line. The group works through social agencies and civic groups, as well as many area schools, including School of the Osage, Camdenton, Climax Springs, and Macks Creek, to discover the needs of children in the area. In the past, they have been able to supply items such as shoes for sports, school art supplies, dental care, Buddy Packs food for kids, clothing, school club participation fees, car batteries for working kids, and much much more. Through the Gala of Trees, they are able to provide a happy holiday for families that might not otherwise have one at all. Idiots Club member, Christie Janssen, has organized the Gala of Trees from the beginning.


Join Us November 17-19
Our family friendly Lake of the Ozarks restaurant will be filled with some of the most incredible holiday decorations that you have ever seen from Thursday, November 17 through Saturday, November 19 this year. Please take some time to stop by Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, check out the amazing creations that have been donated, and spend a few dollars to make a local child's holiday special. We open daily at 11 am, and bidding will continue through Saturday evening when Dale Blue will be onstage entertaining the crowd. Begin your holiday season with us, and pick up a gorgeous pre-decorated tree or wreath while you are here.

Join Us For The 7th Annual Gala of Trees at the Boot!

Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach has become the new home for one of the best annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks - the Gala of Trees! You don't have to go to the trouble of finding a naked Christmas tree and dragging out your big box of ornaments this year. Instead, purchase a fully decorated one that is already beautiful and ready to display, all while helping out a couple of wonderful local organizations. 



Annual Gala of Trees
Every year since 2010, the lake area has been taking part in this incredible holiday event. It originally took place at Bootleggers Sports Book & Grill, but will be making its debut at Wobbly Boots BBQ for 2016. The restaurant will be filled with completely decorated trees and wreaths, and patrons will be invited to bid on them through a silent auction. The highest bidder at the end of the event will get to take their tree or wreath home to display throughout the holiday season.

You will see a wide variety of unique themes and unusual ornaments at the Gala of Trees. There is sure to be something perfect for everyone, no matter what your holiday decorating style may be. It's a great way to save some time this season, but even better, it's a wonderful way to brighten someone else's holiday at the same time. All of the proceeds collected from the tree and wreath sales are given to Candyland and the Idiot's Club. Both of these organizations use the money to provide toys for lake area children that might not otherwise receive gifts this season.



Thursday, Nov. 17
This 3-day event begins with the Gala of Trees Kickoff Party on Thursday beginning at 5 pm. Tickets are $20 each, and everyone in attendance will enjoy delicious appetizers and soups, one glass of Gala Punch, and the exclusive chance to win the Gala Christmas Wreath that will be given away that very evening at 9 pm. The remaining silent auction trees and wreaths will remain on display for bidders throughout Saturday night.  



Friday & Saturday, Nov. 18-19
All day and night on both Friday and Saturday, everyone is welcome to pay a visit to the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and check out these amazing, one-of-a-kind Christmas trees and holiday wreaths. The bidding is open to everyone, and the highest bid at the end of the day on Saturday will be declared the lucky winner. 

To close out this awesome event with real style, we'll have the Barefoot Entertainer himself, Dale Blue, on stage Saturday night. Swing by, order up some dinner, and enjoy the entertainment while we wait to see who lays claim to these great holiday decorations. 



You can help too!
The easiest way to help is by stopping by and making an impressive bid on one or more of the Gala trees. If you would like information about being a sponsor, please contact the event organizer, Christy Janssen, by calling 217-779-2768 or emailing cjanssen1970@gmail.com. Trees and wreaths are provided for you to decorate by Lake Regional Hospital. All you have to do is volunteer to provide the decorations, then put your imagination to work thinking up a design that will have everyone climbing over each other to bid on. 

We can't wait to see the incredible trees and wreaths that everyone comes up with for Wobbly Boots Roadhouse's first time hosting the Gala of Trees. Be sure to mark your calendars now so that you don't miss a minute of the excitement!

Meet Our Lake Stock Fall Crawl Band - Fun House!

The Lake Stock Fall Crawl is happening this weekend on Saturday, November 5, 2016, and the best Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant & bar is excited to be a part of the fun! We'll have all the sports action playing in the background on our 21 TVs, incredible mixed drinks and ice cold beer, all of your Wobbly Boots Roadhouse menu favorites, and the best live entertainment on the pub crawl from Fun House!



If you frequented our sister waterfront restaurant, Dog Days Bar & Grill, over the summer, you may have had the pleasure of getting to know the talented musicians that make up Fun House already. They always brought in a fun, party crowd with their high energy dance rock music, and we expect nothing less from them this Saturday at the Lake Stock Fall Crawl. Expect a crowded dance floor from 9 pm - 1 am when you step into the Boot this weekend! 



The team over at Dog Days got the chance to ask the band a few questions last summer, and this is what they had to say. 

The Band
  • Jimi James  -  guitar, vocals
  • Eddie Hines  -  bass guitar, vocals
  • Tommy Dwyer - drums, vocals
  • Micah Collins  -  production coordinator (audio/ lighting)
How did the band come together?

The band formed two years ago, with the idea of focusing on current songs & artists, as there are already a ton of 80's, 90'. classic rock, country, and blues bands in the area.  We wanted to play something different that could get dancers excited.

What are some favorite or unique gigs you have played?

ALL of them, with summer shows at Dog Days at the top of the list of course! The attendance of bachelorette parties always promise an "off the hook" evening.



What's a party like at Dog Days when you guys play? 

Absolutely some of my favorites... I love the lake and lake people... and the best party is at Dog Days.  Drinking, dancing, excited peeps... never a dull moment!!  Plus the staff is second to none.   


What does a typical set list look like?



Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson / Bruno Mars
Happy - Pharrell Williams
Love Runs Out - One Republic
Treasure - Bruno Mars
Counting Stars - one Republic
Safe and Sound - Capital Cities
The Real Slim Shady - Eminem
Feels So Close / Summer - Calvin Harris
Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5
Don’t - Ed Sheeran
Geek in the Pink - Jason Mraz
Good Feeling - Flo Rida
Maps - Maroon 5
Lessons in Love - Neon Trees
Get Lucky - Daft Punk
Crazy - Gnarls Barkley
Forget You - Cee Lo Green

Who are some of your greatest musical influences?
All of it…….except polkas. 

A lot of punk and new wave influences....but still love the classic cats like Sir Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, etc. etc......but I've come to appreciate a lot of current guys. 

Party With Fun House at the Boot!
Make sure your hippy get-up includes some comfortable dancing shoes, because these guys will keep you on the dance floor all night long! You can check out some of the pub crawl details in last week's Wobbly Boots Roadhouse blog, and all of the most recent updates and detailed information at www.LakeStockFallCrawl.com.

Missouri Beers On Tap At The Boot

When you are looking for the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks, we want you to think of us first. One way that we strive to make that happen is through the excellent draft beer options that we have to offer at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse.

Every day, we have a whopping 21 beers on tap. You will always find the old stand-bys, like Bud Light, Miller Lite, Sam Adams, and Blue Moon. The other taps change occasionally with seasonal beers and new brews that we would like to introduce to you. 


Missouri beer, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks

Today we are featuring a few Missouri beers that we have on tap right now. If you are a craft beer lover, then you'll want to come in and give these Show-Me-State beers a try. 

Bur Oak Brewing Company
Boone Country Brown
Not too far away in Columbia, you can find the Bur Oak Brewing Company. Their brewmasters deliver meticulously executed, yet approachable, stylistic craft beers that are made to bring communities together. We are currently featuring their Boone County Brown.

This American brown ale is a rich brown porter style beer. This mellow beer goes down easily and has a smooth finish. You will taste notes of dark chocolate and roasted coffee over a full bodied caramel backdrop. It pairs wonderfully with beef, roasted pork, BBQ, and chocolate desserts, which are all things that we just happen to serve right here at the Boot!

Urban Chestnut Brewing Company
Oktoberfest Lager 

St. Louis is home to this company that categorizes their unique brewing philosophy as "Beer Divergency." It's a new world meets old world brewing approach, combining American beer & European beer styles. They have a long list of beers that they produce regularly, and the one that we have on tap right now is their Oktoberfest Lager - Oachkatzlschwoaf (pronounced "oh-khut-zel-schvoaf.") 

This is brewed every year especially for their Oktoberfest celebration. It is malty, yet well balanced, much like the beer served at Okboterfest in Munich. It's a brilliant amber in color with great clarity, and has a slight sweetness balanced by floral hops. 

Springfield Brewing Company -
Greene Ghost IPA & Paul's Pale Ale
SBC is a staple of the Springfield, MO downtown community. They brew one of a kind, supremely drinkable beers, and the have been doing that since 1997. They have received many awards over the years, including the World Beer Cup gold for their Mayhem Marzen.

Wobbly Boots Roadhouse proudly serves 2 beers from SBC. The first one, Paul's Pale Ale, is brewed year-round and is a tribute to the founder of the company, Paul Meuller. It has a lightly sweet caramel malt body that is balanced by big citrusy American hops. 

Their Greene Ghost IPA is only brewed June-November each year. It's flavor is kept in balance by the right blend of malts, the mashing profile, and fermentation control. In their own words, it "starts off with hops in the nose, then with a nice smack of hops on the kisser, followed by a lingering hoppy wonderfulness!" They suggest enjoying both of these brews with pulled pork nachos, which is one of our specialties!

Boulevard Brewing Company
Unfiltered Wheat Beer
From Kansas City, we've got beer from this company that has grown to be the largest specialty brewer in the Midwest. They distribute to 31 United States and Washington DC. Since 1989 the brewery has remained dedicated ot the craft of producing fresh, flavorful beers using traditional ingredients and the best of both old and new world brewing techniques. 

We offer their America-style wheat beer, which is a lively, refreshing ale with a natural citrusy flavor and distinctive cloudy appearance. It's their most popular brew and the best-selling craft beer in the Midwest. 


Let us pour you a pint!
The next time you belly up to the bar at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant, order up one of Missouri's finest brews. These will change from time to time to allow us the chance to bring you even more varieties, so be sure to come in before some of these are gone. We open at 11 am daily for lunch, and the bar keeps serving late into the night. You can also join us for Happy Hour at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse every Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm, and all day every Sunday!
