Frozen Concoctions (& Toppers!)

A summer day (or night) at the Lake of the Ozarks simply isn't complete without a delicious frozen cocktail. If you're really up for an amazing drink, you will want to add a topper too! 

In case you're unfamiliar with the term, a topper is a "test tube" filled with an additional liquor of your choice. Extra kick and bonus flavor! We have numerous options when it comes to our frozen treats, but here are a few of the most popular. 

-Rum Runner
Dog Days Bar & Grill, Lake of the Ozarks, cocktails, drink menuThis Lake classic combines a multitude of tropical flavors with light rum for a frosty, refreshing blend. 

-Pain in the A**
You shouldn't visit the Lake of the Ozarks without giving this incredible drink a try. It combines the best of both worlds - our popular Rum Runner and the classic Pina Colada - for a flavor you won't be able to get enough of. 

-Banana Cabana
This one will make you chase your tail! Seriously! A frozen treat of banana, pina colada, Kamora coffee liqueur, and Cruzan Black Strap Rum. 




The Dog List

The talented bartenders at our sister restaurant, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, will be able to mix up many of these drinks over the winter for you, but there's just something special about sipping a tasty cocktail by the water's edge. There are only a few big weekends left during the season, but there are lots of quieter weekends left to visit the best waterfront bar at the Lake of the Ozarks before we close our doors for the season. (Of course, if you want to get a little rowdy, we certainly won't complain!)

You can see a great big list of our cocktails on the Dog Days Bar & Grill website. We are currently preparing for a great big, exciting Labor Day Weekend, plus the Lake of the Ozarks BikeFest is right around the corner too. People may try to tell you that summer is ending, but here at the Dog, we're still going strong for many more weeks to come.

Exciting Events & Awesome Live Music This August at Dog Days

Whether you are looking for the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks or the most exciting annual events, you can be sure you will always find both at Dog Days Bar & Grill. This August you'll experience something similar to our Canine Cannonball, but with a new twist, plus an awesome poker run, and music that will have you out of your seat and on the dance floor. 



Dueling Dogs: August 5-7

You can get all of the necessary details, including the weekend schedule, from last week's Dueling Dogs blog, but in a nutshell, two dogs and their handlers go head-to-head, racing to see who is the quickest. 

The Canine Cannonball is all about distances jumped, but Dueling Dogs is all about speed. A team consisting of one canine and one handler duel against another team by racing down a platform into a body of water. Once the dog hits the water, they must be the first to retrieve the object at the end of the pool.

If you think your dog has what it takes to claim this year's title, head on over to www.DuelingDogs.net and get registered. 




Warriors Against Melanoma Poker Run: Saturday, August 13

Warriors Against Melanoma (WAM) is a non-profit organization which is dedicated to educating people about melanoma and raising money to help find effective treatments and eventually a cure for this deadly skin cancer. One person dies every hour, every day in the United States of melanoma. WAM itself was founded by a stage 3 melanoma survivor and is entirely run by volunteers.

There is a $20 donation per hand for each player. At every stop, players will draw one card and receive one fact about skin cancer. If they can produce these facts at the after-party, they will earn a free bonus card for their poker hand. Register at any of the stops, which include:

  • Dog Days Bar & Grill
  • Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina
  • Bulldog's Beach House Bar & Grill
  • Larry's on the Lake
  • Nautifish Rum Bar

The Best Bands are at AquaPalooza 2016

AquaPalooza at Dog Days Bar & Grill has become famous for being the most fun and largest 1-day boating event at the Lake of the Ozarks. Thousands of people from all over gather together to combine 2 of the best things that the lake area has to offer: boating and live music. 




You bring the boat (or join us by land if you prefer) and we'll bring the most talented entertainers to our lakeside stage from noon to 5:00 pm. These bands will keep you rocking all day long, and if you aren't ready to stop the party at 5, we'll have more incredible entertainment waiting for you on our regular stages after AquaPalooza too.


State Line Drive


This talented bunch of guys play country/pop music. The band is made up of two sets of brothers plus their bandmate, all from Missouri. When they realized the potential of their blended harmonies and mix of talents, State Line Drive was born. A few songs off of their album are "You Get Me," "Stay Green," and "Good Side of Crazy."





The Mixtapes


A premier 90's tribute band, the five talented performers that make up the Mixtapes each sings, allowing them to cover a large range of hits from the decade. You won't be able to keep yourself from dancing and singing along to their high-energy show featuring songs from The Cranberries, Nirvana, No Doubt, Beastie Boys, Radiohead, Spice Girls, Weezer, Rage Against the Machine, Beck, and lots more.



Seven Bridges Road


This incredible tribute band has set out to recall the legend that is "The Eagles." This group of men are all huge Eagles fans, and are proud to be able to bring this music not only to other fans, but also to a new generation. "Witchy Woman," "Hotel California," & "Desperado" are just the tip of the iceberg for their awesome song list. You can see a video about this talented tribute band on their Seven Bridges Road page. 




Members Only  


A Lake of the Ozarks favorite 80's tribute band, this group performs all of the greatest hits from one of the best decades. The show is high energy, loaded with fun, and sure to keep you dancing and singing throughout. Their goal is to synthesize every show into an epic party, and they have never disappointed our crowds. Enjoy all of your favorites Journey, Michael Jackson, Def Leppard, Prince, Bon Jovi, Guns N' Roses, and many more.



The music begins at noon on the waterfront stage, and these bands will keep going until 5:00 pm. You won't want to go home when they're done though. We'll keep the party going all night long on our indoor and outdoor Dog Days Bar & Grill stages.






Pearl will begin as soon as AquaPalooza ends, performing from 5 pm - 9 pm, with a wonderful mix of cover songs and their own originals. After that, Member's Only is back for an encore performance. They'll be rocking from 10 pm - 1 am. 



AquaPalooza t-shirts are already available at the restaurant for $15 each. Get yours now before they're all gone! Our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant and bar is home to all of the greatest summer events, plus the best food and most delicious drinks. Our Late Nite Menu lets you eat from 10 pm - midnight, well after most of the other restaurants have shut their kitchens down. Dog Days Bar & Grill is the only place to be for an awesome weekend at the lake.
