Cajun Inspired Cooking
The French-speaking Acadian people that made their homes in New Orleans years ago came up with some amazing dishes that have stood the test of time and are now considered classics. They took ingredients that were easy to find in the area and created unbelievable flavors that make a mouth water.
Some of the staple items used in Cajun cooking include: rice, sausages, seafood, and vegetables. All of those are present in the dishes you may order at our waterfront Lake of the Ozarks restaurant, paired with rubs and spices direct from Louisiana, just like you'd find in the French Quarter. You will find selections with a Creole influence throughout our menu, but our Bourbon Street Eats section is completely filled with it.

Comfortable Dining, Inside & Out
The lakefront deck is still open this time of year so that you can enjoy your Cajun creations outside on the nicest of fall days. When the weather gets a little chilly, we've got an outdoor area complete with a cozy fireplace to fight that chill. There's even a TV next to the fireplace in case there's a good game on you don't want to miss.
On those days when it's just too cold or rainy to truly enjoy your meal outdoors, our indoor dining room has a fully stocked bar and plenty of seating to accommodate groups of every size. While you're in there, pick up an awesome Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina sweatshirt for the walk back to your car or boat!
Our season's not over yet, so make sure to head on over to the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and order up some of our tasty Cajun food while you still can. You're definitely going to want to get your fill over the next couple of months so that you can make it through the winter until next season!
