Your Search for the Best BBQ in mid-Missouri Stops at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse!

For over 25 years, our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant has earned multiple awards as well as quite a few happy, dedicated, return customers, for our unique "hybrid style" of BBQ. When you are in mid-Missouri and have a craving for a plateful of savory, mouthwatering, hickory-smoked BBQ, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach should be your final destination! 

Our Unique BBQ Style
That "hybrid style" we referred to was inspired by the BBQ meccas of the U.S.A. - Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, and Texas. We combined our favorite things about all of their amazing styles and created a taste that gives you a BBQ flavor that will tickle your tastes buds and satisfy even the biggest hunger! 

First, we slow-smoke our succulent meats over hickory allowing the incredible flavors of each type of meat to come through boldly. Next, those meats are coated (or served with a side of) our flavorful, house-made BBQ sauce. The end result is a plate full of hickory-smoked BBQ goodness that keeps you coming back for more again and again! 

So Many Choices! 
Our Wobbly Boots BBQ is offered in sandwich form and by the plateful. Those incredible meats are used as a delicious added ingredient to many of our non-BBQ dishes on the menu too, like salads, nachos, giant baked potatoes, and much more. Here is a look at our main BBQ creations. 

Smoked Meat on a Bun
You can enjoy a 5-oz. or 8-oz. portion of your choice of our BBQ meats served on a locally-baked kaiser roll. These sandwiches are always served "wet" (sauced) but feel free to ask us to leave it off if you prefer to sauce it yourself. Each of these dishes also comes with your choice of one of our homestyle side dishes. 

Pit Ham
Lean, thin-sliced, double-smoked ham.

Pulled Pork
Our pork is slow-smoked over hickory for 16 hours then hand-pulled and trimmed.

Smoked Sausage
Smoked sausage links sliced and served with BBQ sauce. 

Beef Brisket
Our juicy beef brisket is slow-smoked for 10 hours and sliced for maximum tenderness.

Turkey Breast
100% white meat turkey breast smoked to perfection. 

Combo Sandwich
4-oz. each of any 2 of our smoked meats listed above. 

Smoked Meat Plates
Here you can build your own plate filled with the hickory-smoked meats of your choice. Each dinner is served with a piece of Texas toast and one homestyle side dish. 

Jumbo Meat Plate
An 8-oz. portion of your favorite meat.

Double-Meat Combo Dinner
Two 5-oz. portions of your choosing. 

BBQ Trio
Try the original trio of pork, brisket, & sausage or select 3 of your favorites for a hearty meal! You may also substitute half a slabe of spare ribs or half a slab of baby back ribs for 1 meat option on the trio. 

The meats you may choose from include:
  • Hand-Pulled Pork
  • Beef Brisket
  • Turkey Breast
  • Pit Ham
  • Smoked Sausage
  • Burnt Ends (for an additional $1, while they last, always served "wet") 

Bad to the Bone BBQ
These fantastic dinner plates are served with your choice of one homestyle side dish and a big piece of Texas Toast. 

Baby Back Ribs
A slab of tender, meaty ribs coated with our dry rub and slow-smoked, lightly grilled and basted with our secret recipe sauce before serving. Available as a full slab or half slab.

Classic Pork Spare Ribs
For the true BBQ lover! Juicy pork spare ribs coated with our special dry rub and slow-roasted over hickory logs. Available as a full slab or half slab.

Hickory-Smoked Half-Chicken
Our classic chicken dinner, spice-rubbed, smoked and glazed in our homemade BBQ sauce. 

BBQ Chicken & Ribs Combo
A delicious combination of mouthwatering 'que! Half a BBQ chicken and a half slab of pork spare ribs. 

That's a quick peek at the main hickory-smoked BBQ meat meals you'll find at our family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. Throughout our extensive menu you'll find even more hickory-smoked delicacies like Wobbly Wings and Smoked Prime Rib, plus lots dishes that use our savory meats as a main ingredient, like the Burnt Ends Sandwich, Loaded Baker, Pulled Pork Nachos, Cowboy Cobb Salad, and so many more. 

If you'd like to extend the fantastic BBQ experience to some of your own home-cooked meals, you can pick up a 16-ounce bottle of our house-recipe BBQ sauce to take home while you're here. As a matter of fact, they tend to go quickly once your household gets a taste, so you better pick up a few bottles! 

We'll see you soon at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse for lunch, dinner, or possibly a mid-day snack of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks. After that, we expect to be seeing you quite often, again and again!

The Best Stop on the 2019 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl - Wobbly Boots Roadhouse!

We're only a few weeks away from one of the biggest annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks and you'll find Wobbly Boots Roadhouse at the center of all the action! The 2019 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl is happening on Saturday, February 16 and we've got all kinds of excitement planned for you when you stop at the Boot. 

Live Music
Every stop on the Lake Pub Crawl will feature live entertainment, but we've got the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks lined up to grace the Wobbly Boots stage all day long! From 4-8 pm the Boomchux will be entertaining our awesome crowd. You'll want to be here early enough to enjoy those talented fellas, but be sure to come back again later in the evening to enjoy the amazing DJ Vinyl Richie from 8 pm-close. We won't stop our party until the final moments of the pub crawl! (It's the law, we have to stop then.) 

Show Up Hungry & Thirsty
We'll be serving our regular menu featuring the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks from 11 am-4 pm. After that, the kitchen will shut down so that we can open up the dining room for dancing and pub crawl antics. You won't' go hungry though, because we'll have a food tent set up outside so you can grab a hot, delicious bite to eat throughout the evening. 

Our fully stocked bar will be slinging all of your favorite mixed drinks, ice-cold beers, and 21 draft beers all night long. (You're going to work up quite a thirst with all of that dancing you'll be doing.) In addition to the main bar, we'll have a few beer tubs set up around the room so you won't have to wait in line too long to quench your thirst. 

Start the Party on Friday 
On Friday, February 15, 2019, the night before the Lake Pub Crawl, our sister restaurant is opening the doors for one very special night! (Sure, they're technically closed this time of year, but this is too great a weekend to sit out!) 

The bar will be open at 7:00 pm at Dog Days Bar & Grill and the stage will be rocking with two incredible live bands starting at 8:00 pm. This double-feature includes The Plastics and The Mixtapes. Tickets will be $15 at the door on show night or you can pick them up in advance right here at the Boot for only $10!  

Lake Pub Crawl Details
All it takes to get into the biggest party at the Lake of the Ozarks is a single, $10 wristband. These can be purchased closer to the event at participating pub crawl stops and Sunshine Daydream on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip. That wristband not only gets you into every stop on the pub crawl route but also a ride on any one of the 20+ buses providing a safe, sober ride to pub crawlers all night long. You can find additional details by visiting  

Plan Your Route
This year there are 16 bars and restaurants on the Lake Pub Crawl route. The majority of the buses will continuously run the entire route all night long. A few designated "express buses" will only be stopping at 3 venues throughout the evening in case you need to get to the other side of town a little quicker.  

Need a Place to Stay?
If you're coming from out of town and need a place to stay, these amazing vacation houses at the Lake of the Ozarks are an excellent choice. Next door to Dog Days Bar & Grill is a luxury waterfront vacation house that can house up to 18 people. Sitting next to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina are two amazing vacation rental houses, The Glass House which can hold up to 8 people, and The Red House that accommodates up to 16 guests.   

All of these rentals are centrally located in Osage Beach. You can check availability and rates, see more photos, get details, and book your stay online by clicking the links provided above. 

We expect to be seeing a lot of you during the Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl on Saturday, February 16, 2019. Don't forget to come back to Wobbly Boot BBQ on Sunday too for our all day Sunday Happy Hour. A little "hair of the dog" and some delicious BBQ may be exactly what you need to recover after an exciting night at the Lake Pub Crawl!

5 Reasons We Have the Best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks

Lots of places claim to have the best Happy Hour at the Lake of the Ozarks, but we have quite a few people joining us for Happy Hour at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse every week that will argue that the very best one happens right here! In case you haven't tried it out yet, here are 5 reasons why we know you're going to love Happy Hour at the Boot.   

The Drinks
Happy Hour is known to be a time for relaxing after a long day with a couple of cocktails. Here at the Boot, every Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm plus all day every Sunday, you can enjoy those drinks at a discounted price. Now that's bound to make your time here a little happier!

Our Happy Hour drink specials include $1 off all well drinks and wine. You can also get $1 off of draft beers and we've got 21 of those for you to choose from. 

The Food
We don't just limit the deals to drinks. During Wobbly Boots' Happy Hour you can also get some delicious appetizers at a great price. Our full menu is always available, but we've got some fantastic specials on:

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

The People
The staff at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant always has a friendly smile waiting here for you to go along with top-notch customer service. Those aren't the only awesome people you'll meet at the Boot, though. When you join us for Happy Hour you're bound to run into a few regulars sitting around the bar. If you're willing to strike up a conversation with a stranger, that stranger will very likely be a friend by the time you leave!  

It's Not Limited to the Bar
Unlike many other establishments, our Happy Hour specials are offered to everyone in the restaurant, not just the folks bellying up to the bar. If you happen to come in for a meal with the family or have a big group of friends that you need a table to accommodate, you can still order Happy Hour items, no matter where you are seated.  

It's ALL DAY on Sundays
Weekday Happy Hours are expected, but there aren't a lot of places that also run those specials on a weekend and even fewer that don't limit it to just a couple of hours. When you join us at the Boot on Sunday, we want to end your weekend on a very special note by offering our Happy Hour to you all day long! 

You can always find a great game to watch on our 21 TVs and giant projection screen, but this time of year the sports-watching is exceptionally good. The NFL playoffs are currently underway and our Kansas City Chiefs are still in the running! You know you'll be watching, so you might as well watch here with us and enjoy Happy Hour while you do!   

Most people already know you can find the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks when they join us, but now you can let them know to expect the best Happy Hour too! Come on into Wobbly Boots Roadhouse soon and experience it for yourself. We bet you'll be back for more!

Celebrate National Soup Month This January Wobbly Boots-Style!

A great big plate of the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks is always an excellent choice for warming you up on a cold winter's day. The hearty soups we serve at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach are perfect for doing that too. The pairing of the hot, comforting goodness of soup and cold mid-Missouri Januarys is hard to resist, which is probably the reason this month has been designated nationally as Soup Month.  

Our Famous Baked Potato Soup
This particular soup has become so very popular at our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant that it has earned a permanent spot on the menu, available year-round, 7 days a week! It's rich, creamy, and everything you could possibly ask for when you're craving a hot bowl of soup. 

Every serving is packed full of chunks of potatoes and garnished with cheddar-jack cheese, crumbled bacon, and green onions. It's a delight for all of your senses! First, you'll love the look of the colorful presentation, then the savory scent will hit you. Your taste buds will tingle with the first spoonful, and you'll immediately feel satisfaction deep in your stomach. You can't really hear our soup unless the person next to you is slurping it, but that's okay because you'll very likely be doing the very same thing! Your noise will cancel out theirs.   

Soup Du Jour
Even though our Baked Potato Soup is hard to resist, some days you may be in the mood to try something different. For that very reason, we also offer a Soup of the Day. Your server will be able to tell you what our chefs have come up with when you sit down to order. Some of the varieties that they've created in the past include (but are not limited to): 

  • Cheeseburger Soup
  • Beer Cheese & Sausage Soup
  • Tortellini Soup
  • Creamy Cajun Chicken & Noodle Soup
  • Ham & Bean Soup
  • Vegetable Beef Soup
  • Chili
  • White Bean Chili

Pair It Up
You are welcome to order our soups as your main meal if that's all you're hungry for, but they always taste great paired with the other delicious items on our menu too. You can upgrade to a premium side dish with either a cup or a bowl of soup. 

We also offer a combo meal that is available in 3 different ways. 
  • Cup of Soup & a Garden Salad
  • Cup of Soup & a Sandwich (Turkey & Swiss, Ham & Swiss, or 4-Cheese Grilled Cheese)
  • Garden Salad & a Sandwich   

Who is ready to celebrate National Soup Month with us, Wobbly Boots-Style? Whether you're in the mood for a light lunch or hungry for a hearty meal with all the fixin's, you'll always find something to hit the spot perfectly at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant & bar. Tell everyone to meet you at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach. You're all sure to leave happy and satisfied!
