2016 Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals - May 6-8

The historic Bagnell Dam Strip will once again be the site for central Missouri's largest car show - the Annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals. Friday-Sunday, May 6-8, 2016 you can view some of the most spectacular automotive showpieces you've ever seen. 

Not only will you see these magnificent cars on the Strip, but all over town. The Wobbly Boots Roadhouse parking lot is usually filled with a few of these at different times during this annual event at the Lake of the Ozarks. We may not be right next to all of the action, but we're close enough that they bring a lot of it to us!

The Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals features all makes, models, and years of cars, trucks and motorcycles. 2016 will be the 28th year the lake area has had the honor of hosting this event. The entire Bagnell Dam Strip is closed to traffic for the weekend, leaving visitors free to roam up and down the mile-long "parking lot" filled with gorgeous vehicles. The show hours officially open at noon on Friday and will conclude on Sunday with awards at 1 pm. Here is the detailed schedule (subject to change):

Visit us when you're done!

If you love classic cars and spending an afternoon on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip, then this is a weekend you do not want to miss. When you are ready for a break from the crowds, head on over to our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant. We'll be showing all of the baseball and basketball action all weekend long, and on Sunday, it's Happy Hour all day

Also, during the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 7, from 3-6 pm, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse will be participating in the Four Roses Kentucky Bourbon's "Crawl for the Roses" event. There will be fresh roses for the ladies, souvenir drink cups, and a $50 gift certificate going to the person wearing the best Derby hat. You know how it is. Just another awesome weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Local Brew on Tap: Springfield Brewing Company

Nothing quite matches the delicious taste of an ice cold beer to drink along with juicy, hickory-smoked, savory BBQ. Our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant prides itself on the incredible draft beer selections that we have to offer our customers. Among them you will find many names you already know, but if you are not a Missouri native, then our Springfield Brewing Company selections may be new to you. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse currently offers two of these tasty beers on tap.

Springfield Brewing Company

This brewery has been a staple of downtown Springfield, MO since 1997. Their one of a kind beers are a favorite among locals, as well as any travelers that are lucky enough to stumble across them. With the tradition of English, German, and American style ales and lagers in mind, this company has mastered the art of how to make a good beer.

In 1997, the Paul Mueller Company bought a building where they planned to showcase their one of a kind stainless steel brewery tanks. The company was sold to Ashton Lewis and Bryan Bevel, along with a few of their close friends, in 2011. Today they continue the award-winning craft brew tradition began by the Paul Mueller Company.   


This easy drinking ale offers a toasty blend of lightly kilned malts. The aroma features a blend of Equinox and Cascade. You will taste a modest hop bitterness with a clean, dry finish. SBC brews this tasty beer for "those hot summer days where less is sometimes more." It pairs perfectly with the flavors of our Wobbly Boots BBQ menu, but don't wait too long to give it a try. This is a March-April seasonal treat. 


This one is available year-round, and you are very likely to find it on tap at the Boot no matter when you stop by. Named for SBC's founder, Paul Mueller, this brew keeps his spirit alive and well. It has a lightly sweet caramel malt body which is balanced by big citrusy American hops. They suggest pairing this beer with anything involving meat and cheese (which is most of our menu) and it's especially tasty with our BBQ Pork Nachos.  

Head on over to your favorite Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant and get a taste of these incredible beers from the Springfield Brewing Company. We have the two incredible craft beers listed above on tap right now, along with 19 other awesome draft beer choices. When you are craving some savory BBQ and an ice cold, refreshing beer, there is no place better to satisfy that hunger than Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach.

Cheers to the Health Benefits of Beer!

National Beer Day is celebrated every year on April 7 in honor of the first day after Prohibition that people were able to buy, sell, and consume beer legally. We've got the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks to celebrate this holiday at. With 21 beers on tap plus a large variety of bottled brews, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse has a beer that will appeal to just about everybody.

Enjoyed in moderation, beer actually has quite a few health benefits. If you stick to no more than 1-2 glasses a day, the following facts may be true for you. 

  • Beer has a thinning effect on blood which can prevent the formation of clots, and the Vitamin B-6 from it helps to prevent build-up in the arteries, making it good for your cardiovascular health. 
  • It can boost your level of "good cholesterol" by 10%-20%, helping to prevent coronary disease. 
  • The antioxidant content of beer is equal to that of wine, and beer has more protein and Vitamin B than wine. 
  • When compared to regular wine and cocktail drinkers, regular beer drinkers were found to have the lower blood pressure. 
  • The silicon present in beer helps to increase bone density and protect your bones against osteoporosis. In one particular study, drinking 1-2 beers a day showed an increase in bone density for 4.5%. Be aware though, that people drinking 3+ brews a day actually lowered their bone density up to 5.2%. 
  • Beer, especially the dark varieties, are a good source of soluble fiber. This is great for the digestive system. 
  • Also a rich source of magnesium, it can aid in the prevention of kidney stones.
  • Beer is both high in potassium and low in sodium. 
  • Age slower with beer! It increases the potency and impact of Vitamin E, which happens to be a major antioxidant that maintains healthy skin and slows the aging process.
  • In one Spanish study, researchers asked people to exercise until their body temperature reached 104 degrees. They then had some drink a beer and others drink water. The beer drinkers turned out to be slightly more hydrated. 

If you are ready to imbibe in a tasty brew or two in honor of National Beer Day, or any other day of the year, head on over to Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. Here are the delicious beer choices that we have for you right now.
