Join Us For Catfish Month at the Boot

We're willing to bet that you had no idea August is National Catfish Month. It was news to us here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse too but now that we know, it gives us the perfect opportunity to focus on a menu item many don't even realize we offer. 

It's a well-known fact that your favorite BBQ restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is an expert at hickory-smoked meats. Today we're here to tell you how incredible our catfish dishes are as well.

Catfish at the Boot
The menu at Wobbly Boots BBQ features catfish in two of our tasty menu items. One in sandwich form and the other as a hearty dinner plate. 

Catfish BLT
A southern-style catfish filet coated in seasoned cornmeal and fried to a golden brown. It's served on a hoagie with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and Cajun mayo alongside one of our homestyle side dishes. 

Catfish Dinner
Two delicious southern-fried catfish filets served with tartar sauce and a slice of lemon. The dinner also comes with Texas toast and your choice of one of our homestyle side dishes.

Did You Know...
National Catfish Month has been around since 1988. It was created to recognize both the industry surrounding the fish and the fact that it's a versatile and sustainable food available year-round. You probably already know it's incredibly delicious, but here are a few more fun facts that may be news to you. 
  • While June 25 is observed as National Catfish Day, the entire month of August is dedicated to this tasty fish. 
  • The name catfish was given to them because of the long barbels around the fish's mouth that resemble the whiskers of a cat.
  • They don't have scales! All catfish (there are nearly 2,900 species of them) are either naked or armored.  
  • While wild catfish are bottom feeders, farm-raised catfish are taught to eat pellets that float on top of the water. 
  • The largest catfish ever caught happened in 2005 in Northern Thailand. It weighed in at 646 pounds and was 9 feet long! (That's as big as a grizzly bear!)
  • Legend says that giant man-eating catfish live deep below Bagnell Dam, but divers swear it's just a myth. (Or is it...) The largest catfish ever caught in the Lake of the Ozarks (on record) was 103 pounds and nowhere near big enough to swallow a diver.  
  • In the Southern United States, slang names for catfish include "mud cat, "polliwogs," and "chuckleheads." 
  • Catfish are high in protein and contain no carbohydrates. They are also an excellent source of B Vitamins and phosphorus. 

If Catfish doesn't happen to be your fish of choice, we also have some amazing shrimp and salmon menu items that are incredibly delicious. Of course, if you're not in the mood for seafood at all, we've got the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks ready and waiting for you, year-round, 7 days a week! Come on into Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach soon and discover the many mouthwatering possibilities.
