Exciting December Events at the Lake of the Ozarks You Do Not Want to Miss!

December is a very busy month for many with holiday gatherings and events. Today, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is featuring two exciting events taking place this month that you are going to want to make room for on your calendar! First of all, it's nearly time for our next monthly Fireside Chat Dinner Pairing. The week after that, Dog Days is hosting an awesome off-season winter concert. 



December Whiskey Dinner at the Boot
This time of year, your favorite BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks expands your culinary horizons every month with our very special Fireside Chat Dinner Pairings. These include a 5-course gourmet meal created by our very own, very talented Chef Kevin McCowan. Each of those delicious courses is paired with that month's featured beverage. For Tuesday, December 17, 2019, we're back to whiskey.  



Tickets are $75 per person with dinner beginning at 6:00 pm in our private Fireside Room. Seating is limited and at the time this is being written, tickets are nearly sold out already! (Don't worry too much if you miss this one. You'll have two more chances with another whiskey pairing on January 21, 2020, and a wine pairing on February 18, 2020.)

For our December Fireside Chat, each course will be paired with an incredible whiskey. The dinner menu will include: 


1st Course
Bourbon braised smoked ham hocks/ Porcini mushroom/ Lintels

2nd Course
Wilted greens/ Roasted apples/ Caramelized onion/ Grits/ Spicy rinds

3rd Course
Plum sticky short rib/ Rice noodle/ Grilled leeks/ Fermented honey

4th Course
Pecan smoked shoulder bacon wrapped shrimp/ Sweet corn mash/ Soft boiled egg/ Pork belly sprouts

5th Course
Bacon-wrapped orange chocolate volcano/ Bourbon caramel sauce/ Chiffon and toasted coconut


Winter Concert at the Dog 
To celebrate the 1st official day of winter on Saturday, December 21, 2019, our sister restaurant Dog Days Bar & Grill is hosting a concert featuring a local favorite, the Mixtapes, with special guests 2 Screws Loose. The Dog is actually closed this time of year, so this concert is a special event you simply can't miss out on! 



Tickets can be picked up at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in advance for $10 each or you can buy tickets at the door at Dog Days on show night for $15 each. The doors will open at 7:00 pm with music starting at 8:00 pm. For this concert, only the bar will be open so be sure to join us at Wobbly Boots BBQ beforehand for dinner!  

In case you haven't had the pleasure of hearing the Mixtapes perform before, you are truly in for a real musical treat! Their musical lineup is loaded with a huge range of songs spanning the 90s including tunes from No Doubt, Third Eye Blind, Britney Spears, Nine Inch Nails, The Cranberries, Blink 182, Ricky Martin, Spice Girls, Nirvana, and more. Basically, if you loved it from the 90s there's a good chance you'll hear it during their show. This will be the first appearance of 2 Screws Loose at the Dog and believe us, you're going to love them too! 



Surely you've got room to squeeze two more things onto your December calendar, especially events that awesome! Give us a call ASAP at 573-348-2277 or swing by in person to reserve your tickets. (Sooner than later for December's Fireside Whiskey Chat, because it's about to sell out!) 

If you find yourself with a little free time any other days, you can always join us at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. We're open 7 days a week at 11:00 am to bring you delicious food, a fantastic atmosphere, and good company!

When a Full Meal is Too Much - Appetizers!

Sometimes you're hungry but aren't quite ready for a full meal. That's a perfect time to check out the appetizer menu at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. The only problem might be the fact that even our appetizers are practically a meal themselves! We do offer half-orders of some of them and they're also great for sharing. 



Another wonderful time to head to the appetizer menu at our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is when you're hosting a party. (Lots of those happening around the holidays!) A platter full of Wobbly Wings or Bacon Wrapped Shrimp is sure to please any hungry crowd. 

Here's a closer look at the tasty treats from the appetizer section you can enjoy for a between-meal snack, a dinner starter, or to share with a bunch of friends.




Wobbly Boots Appetizers

Wobbly Wings
Juicy jumbo chicken wings coated in our house dry rub and slow-roasted in our hickory pit. They are available plain, "trashed," or with a choice of four sauces:

  • Trashed - Our smoked wings deep-fried before serving. 
  • BBQ - Our house-recipe sauce, a great addition to anything!
  • Original - A mustard-based sauce like no other. Try it, you'll be hooked!
  • Chipotle Buffalo - Our version of a traditional Buffalo sauce.
  • Teriyaki - Sweet and delicious!

Ribbies & Wings
Two of our most popular items on one delicious plate! Enjoy 4 individual pork spare ribs with our house recipe BBQ sauce and 6 Wobbly Wings with your choice of sauce. 



Chicken Tenders
Fresh chicken tenders are hand-breaded and cooked to a golden brown. They can be served plain or tossed in one of our wing sauces. 

Buffalo Chicken Dip
Smoked chicken breast mixed in a Buffalo cream cheese dip, topped with Provel cheese and baked to a golden brown. This dip is served with corn tortilla chips. 

Burnt Ends & Sausage
Mouthwatering burnt ends and smoked sausage served with a piece of Texas toast.


Fried Pickles
A half-pound of pickle chips hand-breaded in our special seasoned flour and fried to a golden brown and served with chipotle ranch. 

Texas Fries
Seasoned fries smothered in a spicy queso cheese sauce, bacon, green onions, and cheddar-jack cheese served with a side of jalapenos. This can be served as a full order or a half-order. 

Our Famous Onion Rings
A heaping stack of thick-cut yellow onions, hand-breaded to order and deep-fried to a golden brown. They are served with chipotle ranch and available as a full order or a half-order. 



Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
A beautiful blend of crab meat, cream cheese, cheddar-jack cheese, and special seasoning stuffed in large mushroom caps and topped with Provel cheese, then baked to a golden brown.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
6 large Gulf shrimp individually wrapped with our hickory-smoked bacon and grilled to perfection.



BBQ Pork Nachos

Corn tortilla chips covered with spicy queso cheese sauce, pulled pork, baked beans, cheddar-jack cheese, tomatoes, and onions and served with a side of jalapenos. You can get this as a full order or a half-order.

Brisket Quesadilla
Smoked beef brisket, bacon, tomatoes, green onions, and cheddar-jack cheese grilled in a wheat tortilla and served with a side of salsa and sour cream. 



The Wobbly Boots Sampler
Last, but certainly not least, this plate if piled high with some of the best of what we have to offer! You get 4 Wobbly Wings, 4 onion rings, 4 bacon wrapped shrimp, and 4 spare ribs slathered in BBQ sauce. A mountain of food! 



Even though we're most famous for serving the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks, our chefs know how to make quite a few amazing appetizers too! (Many of which contain some of that hickory-smoked goodness!) 

Make it your goal to work your way through the entire appetizer menu at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse soon. If you can't decide on a favorite after that, well, go ahead and make your way through it one more time to see if you can choose just one!

Add the Taste of the Lake of the Ozarks to All of Your Holiday Gatherings

The "Holiday Season" is upon us, which means it's time to get the details nailed down about the entertaining you'll be doing over the next few weeks. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has an excellent suggestion for making that planning a lot easier - hire the best caterers at the Lake of the Ozarks to handle the cooking! As a matter of fact, we can even do more than just the food for you! 



Recipes from 3 Popular Restaurants
Our catering services are powered by the Barrett Restaurant Group, which brings the culinary genius of three diverse Lake of the Ozarks restaurants to you. These include Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Dog Days Bar & Grill, and Shorty Pants Lounge. You may request menu items featuring hickory-smoked BBQ, savory salads, succulent seafood, amazing Cajun cooking, awesome appetizers, and a whole lot more! 

We can custom-design menus for breakfast, lunch, dinner, receptions, holiday parties, seminar breaks, and more. We are also able to handle any size event, both large and small.



Rent Our Event Rooms
Private rooms are available at all three restaurants for your event. (Yes, arrangements can even be made to host winter events at the seasonal venues!) All restaurants also give you access to our fully stocked bars.  

Our private event space at the Lake of the Ozarks inside Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has a cozy fireplace, TVs, and can be closed off from the rest of the restaurant. Both Dog Days and Shorty Pants have luxurious waterfront vacation house rentals available next door to them. Dog Days also has a stage and dance floor available for use and we can help you book the entertainment. 



Grab Food To Go
For small gatherings at home or at the office, consider ordering food from Wobbly Boots Roadhouse to go. This is also a great idea if you are attending a potluck and only in charge of one dish. 

The Boot is open year-round, so even beyond this holiday season, you can order food to go any time of the year for all of your parties and events. You can choose from anything on our regular menu or in the case of our hickory-smoked meats and savory side dishes, you can "buy in bulk" to feed a crowd.

Let Us Bring It All To You
Of course, if you're planning an event that needs too much food for you to carry it all home, we can deliver it! Arrangements can be made to have us load up the catering vans and bring all that deliciousness directly to you. All catering jobs are booked on a first-come, first-served basis so be sure to reserve your date early before someone else gets to it first!



For more details about the best catering at the Lake of the Ozarks, give us a call at 573-348-2277. Our experienced staff will help you create a personalized culinary experience that will have guests talking about your event for years to come! 

The holidays are a special time which can be made even more special by adding the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks (or delicious dishes inspired by one of our sister restaurants) to the festivities. The Barrett Restaurant Group would love to be a part of all of your celebrations, all year long. We'll handle the work, you can simply enjoy the events with your friends and family!

Hey Lake of the Ozarks, We've Got Smoked Thanksgiving Turkeys at the Boot!

Cooking up the perfect Thanksgiving turkey is probably the hardest part about the Thanksgiving holiday. Take that pressure off of yourself and let Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach cook up a tender, juicy, mouthwatering, hickory-smoked turkey for you and the gang this year! Then you can put your focus into those side dishes, unless you'd rather have the best caterers at the Lake of the Ozarks handle those for you too. (We totally can!)  



Hickory-Smoked Turkey
Over the years we've managed to master the perfect cooking times for all of the best hickory-smoked meats at the Lake of the Ozarks, including turkey. You can either bring one in for us to cook or simply make the order and pick up one of ours instead. 

If you already have a turkey and you just need for us to put it into the Wobbly Boots smoker, we are happy to do that for $1 per pound. An even easier route is to let us provide the turkey. Those are $50 and that way, all you have to do is order it and pick it up when it's ready! 

Either way you decide to have us smoke your turkey this year, call 573-348-2277 now to make arrangements so we will have plenty of time to get your bird cooked. Also, if you'd like us to provide a few of our homestyle side dishes for your meal, that can also be arranged!   



Holiday Parties Beyond Thanksgiving
Once Thanksgiving has come and gone, the holiday season will be in full swing. That means parties, family gatherings, and all kinds of big group activities where you will need to feed a hungry bunch of people. 

The Barrett Restaurant Group, which is made up of the talented culinary geniuses of Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Dog Days Bar & Grill, and Shorty Pants Lounge, can create a menu that will have all of your guests fully fed and deliciously satisfied.  



In addition to the types of cuisine each of those restaurants is known for, our experienced staff can help you to create a customized menu for any type of special event as well. Whether it's 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! You can order food to go and pick it up yourself or in many cases, we can load up the Wobbly Boots van and deliver it directly to you. Call us at 573-348-2277 at least one week prior to your event so that arrangements can be made.  



All of our catering is done on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you already have a date set, call and reserve it as soon as possible. There are only so many days between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day and quite a lot of people that would love to have Wobbly Boots BBQ at their event! The sooner you get on our catering calendar, the sooner you can start letting everyone know that the food at your party is going to be irresistible!

Jackson Family Wines
Our featured wines this month come from a family-owned wine company based out of Santa Rosa, California. Their portfolio includes brands from vineyards and wineries in California, Oregon, the Bordeaux region of France, Tuscany, Italy, Australia, Chile, and South Africa. Holding over 30,000 acres in the United States, Jackson Family Wines is the largest owner of coastal vineyards in California and Oregon and they are considered one of the world's largest wine producers.  

It all started in 1974 when Jess Jackson bought an 80-acre orchard in Northern California to plant grapes for winemaking. The business was founded in 1982 and its first vintage of Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay was released in 1983. This particular wine won the first Double Platinum Award in the American Wine Competition! 

From that beginning, they now offer a large variety of amazing wines, have branched out across the world, and have won numerous awards in the process. You already know that Chef McGowan's dishes are irresistible. These wines will make the dining experience even more incredible!

Everyone attending will receive one glass of Gala Punch, a delicious buffet, and the chance to win a special Gala Christmas Wreath that will be given away that evening at 8:00 pm.

Get Ready for the 11th Annual Gala of Trees at the Lake of the Ozarks

We realize that there are some people out there that prefer to focus on Thanksgiving before decorating for Christmas. The 11th Annual Gala of Trees is a great reason to make an exception! 



This beautiful Lake of the Ozarks annual event gets everyone into the spirit of the season, lets you pick up amazing holiday decor for your home, plus benefits some wonderful local organizations. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is proud to be the home for this gorgeous celebration!  

4 Days of Holiday Beauty
The 2019 Gala of Trees at the Lake of the Ozarks will take place November 20-23. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse will be completely filled with beautifully decorated trees and wreaths. This holiday decor can be bid on, silent auction-style, throughout the event. We host the Gala of Trees before Thanksgiving so that you can have your winnings in time to "deck the halls" at your place! 



All proceeds from the tree and wreath sales will be given to Candyland and The Idiot's Club to purchase toys for local children. In 2018, we were able to raise a whopping $20,015.86! 

You can come in anytime during the regular hours at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant to place your bids. Local businesses and organizations have filled these decorations not only with holiday decor but also additional surprises like wine bottles, coupons, event tickets, gift cards, and more! In addition to the silent auction, we've also got a couple of special evenings planned for you as well. 



Gala Kick-Off Party
You can begin bidding on Wednesday, November 20 when we open at 11:00 am. That evening the restaurant will be closed for a private Gala Kick-Off Party beginning at 5:30 pm and you're invited! 

Tickets for the Gala Kick-Off Party are $20 each. This price includes a buffet, one glass of Gala Punch, and a chance to win a special Gala Christmas Wreath that will be given away that evening at 8:00 pm. 



Cans For Christmas
Toys aren't the only items needed over the holidays. Local food pantries often need help restocking their shelves too. 

For that reason, all day long on Friday, November 22, we'll be collecting donations for the local food pantry in conjunction with the Gala of Trees. When you bring in just 5 non-perishable food items to donate, Wobbly Boots will give you half-off one of our delicious appetizers! (One per person)  



Silent Auction Ends & Live Auction Begins
At 8:00 pm on Saturday, November 23, the silent auction will officially close so that the winners can claim their decorations. That's not your last chance to take home something awesome though!

Immediately after the silent auction closes, we'll begin a live auction for even more terrific stuff that you won't want to miss! You might even be able to get some early holiday shopping out of the way. Better make plans right now to spend that entire Saturday night hanging out with us at Wobbly Boots BBQ!



Don't Miss Our Next Fireside Chat  
The night before the Gala of Trees, on Tuesday, November 19, 2019, Wobbly Boots will be hosting another one of our gourmet Fireside Chat Pairing Dinners! This month, instead of pairing Chef McCowan's mouthwatering courses with elite whiskeys, we'll be pairing them with wines! 

This will be the first wine dinner we've hosted and we've got a lot of people that are very excited about it. You might want to reserve your spot early before they're all gone! The dinner is $60 per person and is an evening any foodie and/or wine-lover will not want to miss. 



That's going to be a very exciting week at our BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. Mark your calendars right now so you don't miss a moment of the fun and make sure to tell all of your friends to meet you at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse for the celebration too.
