The food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary and the time it took to get the food was a very long wait.

We stopped here while we were in town. It was close to our b&b. We both had a cocktail and the spinach dip and chips appetizer while we waited for our pizza. Very good I must say. We will definitely go back. They have a...More

Went here for a birthday dinner. I found most of the food to have little taste. Salad need some seasoning. My entree was supposed to be served with meat sauce but I only found 2 tiny pieces of meat in the dish. Server wasn't very...More

We visited on a Sunday evening. We had a 20 minute wait and I understand at times there is a much longer wait. Our table was perfect! We were seated on the covered patio and once they remembered to turn on the string of lights...More

A good restaurant with good salad, wings and pasta. I bet this is a consistent restaurant that serves consistent food, so the waitresses need to make the experience better.

We thought their house salad was super delicious. The lasagna was good but the favorite was a shell pasta dish with a white cream sauce and broccoli

Dined on a busy Sunday evening, but very attentive service. The pizza came quickly but the flavor was lacking. Sauce was sparse and so were the mushrooms. I mentioned this to the waitress and she ordered more mushrooms. Nice gesture but they should have been...More

Response from Bill B | Property representative |
It was a regular menu item many years ago. We have not run it as a special in some time. Perhaps we should, I'll discuss with the staff. Thanks for the question.

The truth is, you can get pizza and pasta lots of places these days.  We know that, that’s why our mission is to become your favorite restaurant!  So how do we do that? With Gourmet Pizza, Pasta, World Famous House Salad and legendary service!  The atmosphere is unpretentious, fun and “Lake Casual” so please, don’t violate our dress code.  And oh by the way, Gourmet refers to our fresh ingredients, secret hand-crafted recipes and the love we put into every dish, not the price…
Our pizza is thin crust with dough made from scratch.  (Hand-tossed available at the Osage Beach location)  Only the finest meats, cheeses and freshest vegetables adorn the top.  Since most of the pasta recipes originate from “The Hill” area of St. Louis you can expect to find many regional favorites like, Toasted Ravioli, Baked Mostaccioli, Cannelloni con Bianco and Lasagna as well as several house specialty pastas.  But, if there is one stand-out item on the menu it has to be the House Salad.  Cold, crisp and fresh, a blend of Iceberg and Romaine lettuce, diced red peppers, green onions and provel cheese tossed in a red wine vinegar based creamy Italian dressing and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
Enjoy outside dining with a beautiful view of the lake at the Lake Ozark location, only 2 miles west of Bagnell Dam Blvd., on Horseshoe Bend Pkwy., or enjoy the Big Game at the Osage Beach location across the street from Dierberg’s at the west entrance to the Outlet Mall.
Happy Hour is Monday through Friday, 3-6 p.m., with great drink specials and half price appetizers.
