UPDATE: We Had a VERY Successful 2018 Gala of Trees!

If you were not able to stop by Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach during our 2018 Gala of Trees that took place November 14-17, you missed out on a holiday scene so beautiful it would have taken your breath away! The main goal for this incredible Lake of the Ozarks annual event wasn't just to make the Boot look pretty and festive for a week, but rather to raise money for some wonderful local organizations. Boy, did we ever do that! 



A VERY Successful Fundraiser
This year the Gala of Trees was able to raise a whopping $20,015.86!!! Those proceeds were divided among 4 amazing organizations that each do their part to bring happiness to local lake area children and their families. 

  • The Mirah Walters Scholarship Program - $1,000
  • The Jessica & Malachi Brazil Foundation - $1,000
  • Lake of the Ozarks Rotary Club - $8,015.86
  • Idiots Club - $10,000   


The generosity didn't stop there! According to chairperson Christy Clark Janssen, many bid-winners donated their winnings back to spread even more holiday cheer. 

"We had a humbling year for Gala of Trees by the generosity of the sponsors and buyers!! We were able to raise $20,015.86 to give to the Idiots Club, Lake of the Ozarks Rotary Club, Jessica And Malachi Brazil Foundation and The Mirah Walters Scholarship fund. 

We had Steve and Debbie Rumple purchase a tree and donate it to be resold. We had Jason Huelett purchase the Mack’s Creek Kids tree. The kids decorate the tree to help give back for the money they have been given from Gala of Trees. Jason donated the tree back to the kids and they were thrilled. We had Bill Long donate his tree to CADV to a mom and two children so they have a Christmas Tree this year. 

We can’t believe the generosity of all those who purchased items! My mom Pam and I can’t thank you enough. We were able to bring the 10 year total to $105,015.86 we are so thankful to all of you for helping and for giving." ~Christy Clark Janssen


Our Next Fundraiser
Wobbly Boots Roadhouse will be giving back to the community again through our upcoming Bourbon Fireside Dinner on Tuesday, December 18, 2018. This event is nowhere near as big as the Gala of Trees has grown to be, but it is a fun evening filled with delicious food, rare bourbons, and great company. Chef Kevin McCowan will be preparing a 5-course gourmet meal paired with bourbons from the hosting distillery, Buffalo Trace Distillery and Sazerac. 


Tickets are $125 each, and a portion of those ticket sales will benefit the Lake of the Ozarks Idiots Club. This wonderful organization is very active in our community, helping local in-need children throughout the entire year. Tickets to this first in a series of Bourbon Fireside Dinners are limited to only 20. If you are interested, call 573-348-2277 to reserve your tickets or you can simply drop by Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach to pick them up in person. 

Join Us Again Next Year!
If you were not able to attend the 10th Annual Gala of Trees this year, go ahead and mark it on your calendars for 2019! This amazing annual event at the Lake of the Ozarks always takes place the week before Thanksgiving week. 


The 2018 Gala of Trees Board Members
Wobbly Boot BBQ is very proud to be the home to this very special event, and we are extremely thankful for Christy Janssen and Pam Leffringhouse for starting it 10 years ago and continuing to support it to this day. Also, thank you to everyone here in the Lake of the Ozarks that participated. It's a wonderful community to live in full of incredible people that make it a joy to live and work here.

Not only do we have a certificate to prove that now, but also a long list of the best bourbon at the Lake of the Ozarks that is available on a daily basis behind our bar.

Smoked Thanksgiving Turkeys & Holiday Catering From The Boot!

The Gala of Trees is happening this week at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse (November 14-17, 2018) which means Thanksgiving is right around the corner! (Next Thursday, Nov. 22) It's hard to imagine that holiday meal without a turkey as the centerpiece. Preparing a turkey can be time-consuming, but the home of the best hickory-smoked meats at the Lake of the Ozarks can cook your turkey and save you the trouble



Smoked Thanksgiving Turkeys
Over the years we've managed to master the perfect cooking times for every type of meat here at Wobbly Boots BBQ, including turkey. That comes in handy for anyone hosting Thanksgiving at their house this year because the Boot can smoke your bird for you. That means less time in the kitchen for you and a delicious turkey for all of your guests to enjoy! 

We can provide a 12-14 pound hickory-smoked turkey for you for $49.99, meaning all you have to do is call up and order it. If you would prefer to provide the turkey yourself, we can smoke it for you for just $1.00 per pound. Give us a call at the restaurant at 573-348-2277 to make arrangements. If you'd like for us to take care of a few of the side dishes to serve along with your turkey dinner, we're happy to do that too!  




Delicious Holiday Catering
In addition to Thanksgiving, our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant can help you feed crowds of hungry people any time of the year. The Barrett Restaurant Group combines the delicious tastes of three lake area favorite restaurants - Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Dog Days Bar & Grill, and Shorty Pants Lounge - to offer the best catering at the Lake of the Ozarks. 



Besides the many unique dishes each of our restaurants are well-known for, our experienced staff can help you to create a customized menu for your special event. Whether it's a breakfast, lunch, dinner, or break time, just tell us what you'd like to serve and we'll do our very best to make it happen. 

No event is too big, and likewise, no event is too small either! Scheduling is done on a first come, first served basis, and we require a final guest count one week before the event. You are welcome to pick up your order to go, or in many cases, we can deliver it directly to you in one of our catering vans. Simply call us at 573-348-2277 or reach out to Kevin at 573-216-5615 to discuss arrangements and get your event on our catering calendar.




If you'll be planning any holiday parties, it's not too soon to begin making arrangements to serve the best catering at the Lake of the Ozarks to all of your hungry guests. For those of you wanting to take advantage of letting Wobbly Boots Roadhouse smoke your Thanksgiving turkey, the sooner you give us a call, the better! That hickory-smoked bird is sure to be the star of your holiday table.

Join Us For The 10th Annual Gala of Trees

It's time once again to deck the halls of Wobbly Boots Roadhouse for one of our favorite annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks - the 2018 Gala of Trees! This will be the 10th year for this fantastic fundraising event, so we're doing our best to make it bigger and better than ever. The only thing we're missing is you!  



Silent Auction
November 14-17
The Gala of Trees is an event that takes place every year prior to Thanksgiving. Our Lake of the Ozarks family BBQ restaurant is filled with gorgeous decorated wreaths and trees for the holidays that you get to bid on silent auction-style. Bids may be placed anytime between Wednesday, November 14-Saturday, November 17.



The holiday trees and wreaths are pre-decorated by local businesses and organizations with all kinds of interesting items, some that you would expect, and some that may surprise you, such as wine bottles, coupons, event tickets, discounts, and even more! Proceeds from this silent auction are given to Candyland and The Idiot's Club to purchase toys for local children. So, not only do you get some amazing decorations to take home, but you're helping out your community at the same time!  



Kick-Off Party
Wednesday, Nov. 14
There is no charge to place a bid on trees and wreaths, but we will be hosting a ticketed Kick-Off Party beginning at 5:30 pm on Wednesday evening to really get this event started with a bang! Tickets are $20 each and include a buffet, one glass of Gala Punch, and a chance to win a very special Gala Christmas Wreath to be given away that night at 8 pm. This is a terrific way to kick-off not only this event but also your own holiday party scene. 



Cans For Christmas
Friday, Nov. 16
Toys aren't the only items needed for the holidays. Local food pantries often need some help restocking their shelves, so we're dedicating Friday night during the Gala of Trees to this important cause. Bring 5 non-perishable items into Wobbly Boots Roadhouse on this day and receive an appetizer for half-price! (One per person) We have a lot of delicious appetizers to choose from, including those famous Wobbly Wings, and for some reason, they taste even better when they're half-price! 



Silent Auction Ends & Live Auction Begins
Saturday, Nov. 17
Saturday is your last chance to come into the Boot and make your final silent auction bids. Don't take it for granted that your bid was the highest, because someone may have come in since you've been here and wanted that same gorgeous item just as much! 

The silent auction closes at 8 pm, but will immediately be followed by a live auction for even more terrific stuff that you're going to want to take home. In other words, plan now to spend your Saturday night here with us! 



We want to send a special thank you out to all of this year's Gala of Trees sponsors, listed on the flyer below, as well as to all of the wonderful businesses and organizations that take the time to decorate and donate fantastic trees and wreaths for this special occasion. Also, an extra-special, full of holiday cheer thank you goes out to Christy Janssen and Pam Leffringhouse. They are the ones responsible for starting this spectacular event which has raised and donated $85,000.00 over the past nine years! 



Start your holiday season a little early right here with us at the 10th Annual Gala of Trees at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach November 14-17, 2018. The feeling you will get when you walk into this holiday wonderland, plus the fact that you are helping to give someone else a beautiful holiday, will truly get you into the spirit of the season. Mark your calendars now and don't miss a moment of the excitement!

We've Got Your Top Foods For Tailgating at the Boot!

The best place to watch football at the Lake of the Ozarks is from the comfortable seats in our Osage Beach BBQ restaurant. With 21 TVs and a giant projection screen, no matter where you sit you'll have a great view! The next best thing to watching all the games with us is actually getting to see them in person. If you get that chance, you can still take all your favorite foods from Wobbly Boots Roadhouse along with you for tailgating! 



There are certain foods that seem to pair perfectly with watching sports, and we've got quite a few of them on the menu at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant. Whether you're headed to a high school game, a college match-up, or cheering on the Chiefs in Kansas City, don't forget to pick up a few dishes on this list to enjoy in the parking lot before the game. 

Wobbly Wings
Anything that you can skip the silverware and eat with your hands is perfect for tailgating, and our famous hickory-smoked Wobbly Wings are always delicious, no matter what the situation. (Just make sure you have lots of napkins nearby!) When ordering our Wobbly Wings to go, consider getting your favorite sauces on the side for dipping to make it a little less messy.


Ribs
Another great food to enjoy in the parking is a big ol' slab of ribs. Instead of dragging your grill along with you, simply swing by the Boot and pick up a few of ours instead. Baby Back Ribs and Classic Pork Spare Ribs are available, both coated in our special dry rub, slow-smoked over hickory logs to perfection, and then coated in our house recipe BBQ sauce. Lick your lips delicious! 



Hickory-Smoked Meats
Any one (or a few) of our incredible hickory-smoked meats can be ordered in bulk along with Kaiser rolls or slider buns. Set up a buffet line for your fellow football fans and let them build their own sandwiches with Hand-Pulled Pork, Beef Brisket, Turkey Breast, Pit Ham, and Sliced Smoked Sausage Links. If you will have plates and silverware handy, you might also want to pick up a few of our family-style side dishes in bulk to serve alongside those tasty meats.   



Join Us Sunday For All Day Happy Hour
For those weekends when you don't have tickets to the game, head on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse to watch your favorite NFL teams play during our all day Sunday Happy Hour! Not only do we offer $1 off well drinks, wine, and a large selection of draft beers, but we've got a few awesome food specials in store for you as well.

Every Sunday throughout the restaurant you can get:

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


Whether you're watching your favorite team play at the stadium, from your living room, or here with us, all of the games will be a lot better when you have a plate full of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks sitting next to you! Give us a call and order your favorite foods to-go or join us for all of your favorite sports right here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. We've got you covered either way!

It's an excellent way to escape the stress of everyday life for a little while so you can get back to it in a much better mood. The Happy Hour at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is here for you 6 days a week with good company, sports on TV, and great specials on delicious food and refreshing drinks. 



Weekdays + Sunday! 
Our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant features fantastic Happy Hour specials every Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm. We don't just stop there though. You deserve more, so the Boot also offers Happy Hour on Sundays ALL DAY LONG

This time of year that all-day Sunday Happy Hour is especially incredible because NFL Football is also going on all day every Sunday. Now that's a match made in heaven! So you see, we're the perfect place to unwind after a long day at work, plus you can hang out with us all day at the end of your weekend so you're completely relaxed and refreshed before heading back to the job on Monday!

Once you step inside Wobbly Boots BBQ, the savory smell of hickory-smoked meats immediately makes you hungry. You are welcome to order anything you like from our regular menu, but during Happy Hour at the Boot, you can enjoy some of our amazing menu items at a special price. These include: 

  • 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, we all do! It's more than just bellying up to the bar for a few drinks. Happy Hour is a wonderful time to catch up with old friends and maybe even meet some new ones. It's a great gathering place to get to know your co-workers a little better outside of the office, and it can even be a nice, casual atmosphere to meet clients and possibly do a little networking. Also, that Sunday Happy Hour is perfect for having a little "hair of the dog" after an eventful Saturday night!  

There is almost always some type of sporting event to watch on our 21 TVs and giant projection screen, and many of those happen during Happy Hour. Since Wobbly Boots Roadhouse always offers a down-home, family-friendly atmosphere inside, you're even able to enjoy our Happy Hour specials in the dining room while the kids enjoy a meal of their own.  


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 on over and spend some time with us here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse.
