March Madness is Taking Over the Boot!

March Madness has taken over Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. The tournament continues this week, getting us ever closer to crowning the 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Champions. Hopefully your bracket is still intact, but even if it's not, you'll still have an incredible time when you join us at the best place to watch sports at the Lake of the Ozarks



The Beginning of March Madness 
The very first NCAA men's basketball tournament took place in 1939, with the University of Oregon defeating Ohio State University 46-33. Only 8 teams were invited to participate for the first 12 years. Today, we start with 68 teams in 4 divisions for this single-elimination tournament, whittling them down to the Sweet 16, then the Elite 8, followed by the Final 4, and then the final game to decide the National Championship.

In 1982, the first NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament took place, starting with just 32 teams competing. 64 teams are now included in the initial round of games, and the structure is similar to the men's tournament. The women play their championship game the day after the men's title game, closing out the college basketball season. 

The 2017 Tournament So Far
The Sweet 16 begins on Thursday and continues on Friday, with the Elite 8 winners being decided on Saturday and Sunday. We'll have all the games for you, and here is when they'll be taking place. 





Double the Cheers!
We've got both kinds here at Wobbly Boots BBQ: the cheers you hear when a bunch of basketball fans get together to root their team on, and the kind you make with a drink from the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks. With a fully stocked bar and 21 beers on tap, we've definitely got the drinks covered.  


Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks

You don't have to sit at the bar to get a good view of the games when you're at the Boot. We have 21 TVs located all around the restaurant, including our giant projection screen. Bring the whole gang along with you, because we've got plenty of room for everyone.  

Great Game Food 
Our appetizer menu is filled with incredible plates full of deliciousness to chow down on while you watch your team. If you're here for all the games, you're going to want to order some dinner, too. A great big, juicy burger, our Prime Rib dinner, or the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks is sure to keep your energy high and your appetite satisfied.   


Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks

There's not a bad seat in the house when you watch the games at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. Call up your friends, load your family of sports fans in the car, and all of you can join us for a weekend full of the most exciting college basketball of the year.

Corned Beef & Cabbage On St. Pat's Is NOT An Irish Tradition!

This Friday, March 17, 2017, the Lake of the Ozarks' best BBQ restaurant will be adding Corned Beef & Cabbage to our menu for one day only. The reason for this is that St. Patrick's Day in America has become synonymous with this particular delicious dish. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse decided to dig up a little history about it for you, and we found out something very surprising...



The Irish Don't Eat It!
Well, they may eat corned beef and cabbage on occasion, but they won't be going out of their way to make it for St. Patrick's Day. That food is actually a tradition that Americans have pinned onto the holiday.

Ireland was a major producer of salted meat going all the way back to the Middle Ages, but these meats were almost all for trade only. They were considered a luxury to eat in Ireland, much too expensive for most Irish people to purchase. Instead, they were left to consume the cheaper cuts of meat produced by their country. Salted pork, which is similar to Canadian bacon, was most often eaten there. 

When Irish immigrants made their way to America in the 19th century, the closest thing they could find here to their salted pork was bacon. Unfortunately, that was a very expensive cut of meat on this side of the pond. Ironically, the lower-priced meat that they were able to afford here was corned beef! What was once a luxury to eat was now the most affordable and readily available food. 

Traditional Corned Beef & Cabbage
Even though St. Patrick's Day is an Irish holiday that we enjoy celebrating here in the United States, eating corned beef & cabbage for the holiday came from our association with Irish-Americans consuming the dish all those years ago. 

As for the cabbage we always serve our corned beef with, that pairing was made for the simple reason that it was one of the cheapest vegetables available to the Irish immigrants. The pair became popular together, and today we wouldn't think of having one without the other. 

Corned Beef & Cabbage at the Boot
On St. Patrick's Day this year, you'll be able to taste one more way that Wobbly Boots Roadhouse excels at preparing brisket! We'll be serving our own version of Corned Beef & Cabbage that you'll not only love, but you'll be craving all year long until we whip it up again next year! 



This is, of course in addition to our everyday menu that is still available, and since it's a Friday, we'll have our famous smoked Prime Rib dinner after 5:00 pm. Happy Hour will be happening from 3-6 pm on St. Patrick's Day, and we'll have the talented Brett Gardener on stage at our family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks starting at 9:00 pm. We're sending out a great big "Happy St. Patrick's Day" to all of you, and if you spend part of it with us here at the Boot, you know it will be a happy one!

Be a Part of Team Shannon at This Silent Auction Benefit April 8, 2017

Our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant is happy to be able to provide you with a delicious experience when you go out to eat, but sometimes it's not all about the food. We get to know our repeat customers pretty well, and after a while, they start to feel like a part of the Wobbly Boots Roadhouse family. When one of our "family" is in need, it makes us feel good to be able to help where we can. 



A wonderful young woman in our community, Shannon Miller, was recently diagnosed with cervical cancer. Her friends and family decided to throw a silent auction benefit on Saturday, April 8, 2017 from 3:30-5:30 pm. The money raised will help to pay for the expenses that come along with treatment, and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse was more than happy to offer a place to host it. 



Shannon is a homemaker to three beautiful children, and even cares for friends' children on occasion. She lives at home with her high school sweetheart turned husband, Brandon. Shannon is currently employed with Staunton Hospital and plans to work as long as her health allows. Chemotherapy and radiation treatment will be necessary 5 days a week for 5 weeks at St. Mary's Hospital, and additional treatments may be needed. 

Prayers, kindness, and support for Shannon and her family are greatly appreciated, and if you have a chance to attend the benefit night at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, that would be wonderful too. A large number of silent auction items have been donated already, and more will be added over the next few weeks. 


There will also be a 50/50 drawing that evening. You don't have to be present to win, and if you would like to purchase 50/50 tickets, Call Jackie Miller at 573-2126-9280 or Rick Miller at 573-836-0760. These tickets are $1 each, or you can buy 6 for $5. 

Just as the benefit flyer states, "When our community comes together, we become one family." Join Team Shannon for an afternoon of friendship, companionship, and support at our family friendly Lake of the Ozarks restaurant

Good food, good people, and fundraising for a great cause will be happening that day. If you would like to help by donating a silent auction item, you can contact Jackie or Rick at the phone numbers above. We hope to see many of our extended family here on Saturday, April 8, showing support for a wonderful young woman and her family.

The Many Reasons That Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is the Best at the Lake of the Ozarks

Lake Lifestyles magazine hosts the "Best of the Lake" survey at this time every year, and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is thrilled to be featured in multiple categories! All of you deserve a great big thank you for nominating us and keeping your favorite restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks in the running. Voting takes place now through March 10, 2017, and here are all of the ways that we are have been nominated as the "Best of the Lake."   

Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Lake of the Ozarks

Best BBQ 
Our cooking style was inspired by the BBQ meccas of the United States: Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas. We combined the genius of those experts to create the hybrid-style, hickory-smoked deliciousness that provides you with the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks. To top it all off, literally, we add our very own, house-made BBQ sauce. Simply irresistible!    

Best Ribs

One of the most popular items on our BBQ menu is our incredible ribs. We begin by coating them with a special dry rub. The Baby Back Ribs are then slow-smoked, lightly grilled, and basted with our secret recipe sauce. The juicy Classic Pork Spare Ribs are slow roasted to perfection over hickory logs, and both dishes can be ordered as a full or half slab. 



Best Chicken Wings
Those hickory logs in our smoker also help to create the most amazing, smoked chicken wings that the lake area has ever tasted! That flavor alone is enough to please any wing lover, but we also have 4 unbelievable wing sauces for you to choose from: BBQ, Original, Chipotle Buffalo, and Teriyaki. 

Best Nachos

Great nachos don't have to be made in a Mexican restaurant. We add one of our savory smoked meats along with some other unique toppings to create a flavor that people come back for over and over. Our BBQ Pork Nachos feature tri-colored tortilla chips covered with spicy queso sauce, and then we top it all with pulled pork, baked beans, cheddar-jack cheese, tomatoes, jalapenos, and onions. Yum!

Best Meal For the Money
You can order a meal the whole family will love at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse without breaking the bank. We offer an affordable menu full of the most delicious food at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you join us for Happy Hour Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm, plus all day Sunday, you can even take advantage of some extra special pricing on a few of our tastiest dishes. 

Friendliest Restaurant
We love our regular customers, and we are always excited to greet someone new to our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant. When you dine with us, you'll find a family-friendly, down home atmosphere with the best customer service and friendliest staff in town. We want you to feel like a part of the family while you're here. 

Best Server
Last year's Best Server at the Lake of the Ozarks is nominated again this year, and that just happens to be our very own Jessica Simpson! Her friendly, helpful attitude and overall awesomeness for taking care of customers at the Boot is a big reason why many people keep coming back. She gets better and better every year, so a vote for Jess again this year is definitely the right call.



Best Caterer (x 2)
This year their are two separate categories for best caterer, one in restaurants and one in weddings, and we made it onto both lists! The Barrett Restaurant Group, made up of yours truly, Dog Days Bar & Grill, and Shorty Pants Lounge, is the driving force behind the amazing tastes that we have to offer for any type of event or celebration. Let us know what you're in the mood for, and we'll bring it over and serve it up to you hot, fresh, and delicious.

Best All Around Restaurant
Once again, we want to thank everyone that took the time to vote for Wobbly Boots BBQ in the first round of nominations, allowing us to make it to this final round of voting. All of the reasons listed above played a part in your favorite place to eat BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks qualifying for the Best All Around Restaurant too. 

We spend every day, all year long, making sure that we offer only the most delicious food, refreshing drinks, and best customer service, and we're so humbled that you noticed.

Join Us For The Next Wobbly Boots Whiskey Fireside Chat

The first one was so successful, we've decided to do it again! Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach is getting ready to host another Whiskey Fireside Chat on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 6:00 pm, and we really want you to join us. This is a delicious evening full of food and whiskey pairings, great company, and proof that the best BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is more than the amazing hickory-smoked goodness we're best known for. 



Fantastic Whiskey
This time around, Woodford Reserve will be our featured whiskey for the evening. This incredible Kentucky beverage isn't manufactured, it's crafted in small batches. They use an artisanal process which allows them to craft using all five sources of bourbon flavor, giving the final product a distinct taste and crisp, clean finish. If you've had the privilege of tasting any of Woodford Reserve's varieties, you know exactly what we mean. If not, then this Whiskey Fireside Chat is one that you do not want to miss out on! 




Amazing Food
This event will take place in our private dining area by the fireplace, and each course will be paired with creative whiskey cocktails and tastings. Tickets are $44.99 each, and in addition to the tasty drinks we'll be serving, Chef Kevin McCowan has an amazing menu planned, which includes: 

1st Course

Asiago basket shrimp ceviche with a cherry infused Woodford Reserve Honey and thyme shooter.

2nd Course

Garlic sausage meatball, cabbage, orzo and a roasted tomato bouillabaisse with rye crostini. 

3rd Course 

Micro greens, citrus supreme, prosciutto ham, with toasted hazelnuts and sorghum molasses. 

4th Course 

Peppercorn encrusted pork loin with a duo of potatoes, garlic herb roasted forest mushrooms and smoldering herbs. 

5th Course 

Sherry cask Woodford macerated figs and shortbread.



Guided Experience

An expert will be on hand to guide you through the five courses of pairings. Whether you are a foodie, a whiskey fanatic, or even better, a little bit of both, this is a special evening that you do not want to miss. Seating is limited, so give us a call right away at 573-348-2277 to make your reservation, or stop by to reserve your spot and have a "preview" cocktail while you're here! The photos below are from our Jim Beam Whiskey Fireside Chat last month.

Incredible Live Music at the Boot: Mardi Gras Pub Crawl AND the Blues Society Jam

The Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl is happening this Saturday, February 18, 2017. Every stop on the crawl will feature some of the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks, and Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is no exception. We're not stopping there, though, because on Tuesday, February 21, our stage will once again be filled with amazing live music with the Lake of the Ozarks Blues Society Jam. You can grab a bite to eat, something cool to drink, and dance both nights away!



Mardi Gras Pub Crawl 
This Saturday, February 18, 2017, the 16th Annual Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl will take place between 17 local bars and restaurants, and you will hear incredible live music at each and every one. A $10 wristband lets you into every stop, plus allows you a ride on any of the 32 buses that will be providing a safe and sober ride for everyone from 4 pm - 2:30 am.  

The amazing Dale Blue, the lake's very own Barefoot Entertainer, will be taking the Wobbly Boots Roadhouse stage at 4 pm. He'll be entertaining our crowd until 8 pm with his unique combination of blues and rock. Don't be surprised if he tosses you a tambourine and asks you to join him onstage!



Once Dale is done, Vinyl Richy will be taking over the stage, and he won't be stopping until last call at the end of the night! He has been dedicated to the DJ, remix, and production game for over 11 years, and he definitely knows how to rock our house! If you take a break from us for a while to hop on a pub crawl bus, be sure to swing by our food tent outside before you go. It will feature pulled pork, burgers, brats, and hot dogs to enjoy while you travel to your next stop.  

Lake of the Ozarks Blues Society Jam
After the Lake Pub Crawl, you'll have a couple of days to rest up before heading back to the Boot for another night full of unbelievable music. The Lake of the Ozarks Blues Society will be here on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 from 7-11 pm. The host band for the evening is Super Band. 

The LOTO Blues Society's mission is "To promote live blues and blues related music at the Lake of the Ozarks." If you love listening to talented musicians perform amazing music, then this is a night you'll want to make sure you are here. Come in for dinner and stay for the entertainment. 



We are expecting a huge crowd for the Mardi Gras Pub Crawl, and we hope that many of you will find your way back to the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks again next week for the Blues Society Jam. You can always expect mouthwatering, hickory-smoked BBQ at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, and occasionally, we'll make that experience even better with incredible live music to enjoy along with it.

Enjoy Our Special 1-Night-Only Menu This Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day falls on a Tuesday this year. How do you make a regular Tuesday special enough to impress your sweetheart? Head on over to the best restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks for a 1-night-only special menu. If you've been here before, then you know that the chefs in the Wobbly Boots Roadhouse kitchen never disappoint, and this Valentine's day, they will be cooking to impress! 



The Menu
If your true love is a big Wobbly Boots BBQ fan, we're more than happy to serve any item from our extensive menu to your table set for two. On the other hand, we're putting together two amazing dishes that are not regularly available from the Boot, plus we're bringing our weekend-only Prime Rib Dinner out for a special weekday appearance. Here is what you can look forward to when you plan a holiday dinner here with us after 5 pm.

  • Blackened Mahi Mahi with pineapple salsa and white bean puree.
  • 6 oz. Filet with a Cajun Cream sauce plus loaded mashed potatoes and spring green beans.
  • 10 oz, 14 oz, or 18 oz Prime Rib, slow smoked, perfectly seasoned, then hand cut and prepared to your requested degree of doneness. 





The Plan 
You know your valentine best, so we'll leave it up to you whether dinner at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is a surprise, or if you want to tell them early and let them get excited about it for a few days. Then, arrange to call it an early day at work and make your way to the Boot for Happy Hour from 3-6 pm. Enjoy a couple of pre-dinner cocktails together before your romantic meal. 

Our Valentine's Day special menu is being served after 5 pm, so once that time rolls around you can get the dining portion of the evening started. Our meals are always filling, but try to save a little room to share some sweet dessert. After all, it is a special occasion! Your choices include:
  • Hershey's Chocolate Cobbler
  • Rustic Apple Tart  
  • Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie
  • Red Velvet Cheesecake
  • Root Beer Float
  • Salted Caramel or Premium Vanilla Ice Cream (These are even better topped with bacon and/or pretzel pieces!) 
If you've gone the Happy Hour/early dinner route, then you have the entire evening in front of you to spend together. The local movie theater is bound to have a couple of sweet, romantic choices for you. Of course, you may prefer to rent a movie to cuddle up on the couch with, or binge watch a show you've both been dying to see online.

If you want to switch things around and eat dinner after your Valentine's Day activity, we'll be serving our special menu, along with our entire everyday menu, until 10 pm Tuesday evening. Our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant will have love in the air, and on your plate, this Tuesday, February 14, 2107. Make plans now to bring your sweetheart to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse for a very important part of your Valentine's Day evening.
