New Season - New Healthy Menu: Our Beach Bowls & Pasta Dishes

Dog Days Bar & Grill opened back up this year with all of your favorite dishes still on the menu, but we've added some incredible new items too. We're willing to bet that these will soon be brand new favorites, making it very difficult to choose when you order! That just means you'll have to keep coming back to the best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of Ozarks often so you can have it all!

Lots of Healthy Choices 
With the new menu, we've taken a healthy approach. Many of our lake classics are still there, like the Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich with smoked ham, grilled pineapple, Swiss cheese, and teriyaki sauce. The salads have been upgraded with fresh new ingredients straight from the garden like English peas, heirloom tomatoes, and rainbow organic carrots. 

You will also find a new Avocado Relleno and tasty Lobster Bites when you browse our 2017 menu. Today, though, we are highlighting our flavorful Beach Bowls and Pasta. These include delicious combinations of marinated and grilled meats, sauteed vegetables, fresh fruits, herbs, rice, and more.

All of our Beach Bowls and Pastas are served with a fresh side salad and garlic bread.

This year we're offering fresh diced mangoes with vanilla bean ice cream and crumbled lady fingers, plus our rich Chocolate Volcano with chocolate ice cream, warm gooey brownie bites, and fudge sauce. Extremely hard to resist, and hey, you deserve it!

Dog Days Bar & Grill's 2017 Season Is Here!

Your favorite waterfront restaurant & bar at the Lake of the Ozarks is firing up the grill, stocking the bar, and opening our doors for a brand new exciting season on Friday, March 17, 2017! St. Patrick's Day is our kickoff date this year, and we'll be open at 11 am daily after that. 



Dog Days Bar & Grill is going to look a little different when you stop by this weekend, but don't worry, because there's a good reason for that! You might notice a giant hole full of dirt and construction equipment where our outdoor deck and stage used to be (it's kind of hard to miss!) Don't worry, we've got big, exciting plans for updating that space (have you heard the pool rumors?) but we simply couldn't wait to start serving up the delicious food and tasty drinks that we've all been missing all winter long. 



Out with the old...

Dog Days Bar & Grill, Lake of the Ozarks, new construction 2017
...and in with the new!

Brand new... but still the same!
While our look is getting a great big overhaul (stay tuned for more information on that in future blogs) the Dog Days Bar & Grill you've grown to love is still the same underneath. The tastes you crave, the events you love, and the excellent customer service you expect are still top priorities to us. 


Mouthwatering Meals
All of your old favorites from our extensive menu are back, and you may even see a few new surprises mixed in there too! We're adding some healthier options and a few other fresh new flavors, like our Beach Bowls & Pasta. 

The starters menu is filled with foods you simply can't get enough of, including our famous Nachos. You can order them with spicy ground beef, jerk chicken, BBQ pork, seafood, or veggie-style, and we've even got a Thai Tuna Nacho that will really get your taste buds excited. 

Even the biggest appetite will be satisfied with one of our Chef's Signature Burgers, and the wide variety of Tacos that we have to offer will have you coming back to try them all. There's also Signature Entrees, Specialty Sandwiches, Savory Salads and great big Wraps that all make it hard to save room for dessert, but we've got that too if you can handle it! You can check out the full Dog Days menu online.  



Refreshing Drinks
We're not into the hot summer months yet, but that won't stop us from mixing up those incredible frozen drinks that you love! We've got your Rum Runners and Pina Coladas, and for those that can't choose between the two, the ever-popular Pain in the A**. (Don't forget the topper!) You'll also find the bar is filled with the coldest beer in town, and it's stocked so that our talented bartenders can make all of your favorite mixed drinks too.   

Exciting Events & Live Entertainment
This season, as always, you can expect to hear the very best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks right here at the Dog. Keep your eyes peeled for that schedule soon. 

It's not just the great music that we're known for, but also the amazing parties and events that we host every year. Here are the events we have dates locked down for, and expect to see more added. 




See you this weekend!
You've got an entire season to make it out to our waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, but we really hope to see lots of you for opening weekend. Get your green on and celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us here at Dog Days Bar & Grill to get things started, then come back often to hang out. It's going to be a great year, and we want you to be a part of it!

It's Time for the 2017 Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl

You don't have to wait until we open Dog Days Bar & Grill this spring to have an awesome weekend at the lake. We've got one of the best annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks coming up this Saturday, February 18. The Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl has 17 bars and restaurants ready to show you an incredible time, including our favorite BBQ restaurant, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse! Here's a little advice on how to have the best pub crawl ever! 



Buy A Wristband
Your ticket to all the fun is a single $10 wristband. This will get you into all 17 participating bars and restaurants, plus it will allow you to board any of the 32 buses that will be providing a sober ride for pub crawlers from 4:00 pm on Saturday until 2:30 am Sunday morning. These buses will even be making stops at hotels along the pub crawl route.  

Wristbands can be picked up anytime before or during the event at all of the pub crawl stops, select hotels, and also at Sunshine & Daydreams on the Bagnell Dam Strip. Once that's done, just put it on, hop on a bus, and get ready for the night of your life!   

Plan A Route
Every Lake Pub Crawl stop will host its own live entertainment, so you may want to take a peek at www.LakePubCrawl.com to see where and when your favorite musicians will be playing. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, for instance, will have 2 incredible entertainers keeping the party going for the entire event. 

First, the Barefoot Entertainer himself, Dale Blue, will take the stage from 4-8 pm. Immediately after he is done, Vinyl Richy will take over, and the music won't stop until last call for the night. 



In addition to the awesome music, mouth-watering BBQ, and delicious drinks you already expect from the Boot, they will also have a food tent set up in the parking lot so you don't have to wait for a table to grab a bite to eat. They will be serving pulled pork, burgers, brats, and hot dogs to keep your energy high and your night going strong.  

Pick A Bus
Your wristband gives you access to all of the 32 buses offering pub crawlers a safe and sober ride all night long. 28 of those buses will be stopping at every participating bar and restaurant, in order. The 4 remaining "express buses" will offer a quick trip to get you to the other side faster, making stops at only 4 designated locations. 
Have Fun!
The Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl is the biggest winter party event at the lake, and it seems to get bigger and better every year. Make sure that you don't miss a moment of this awesome night. You can get updates on your phone by texting LAKEPUBCRAWL to 71441, or by visiting www.LakePubCrawl.com

This is a party just epic enough to keep you satisfied until your favorite waterfront bar at the Lake of the Ozarks opens back up this spring. Have an incredible time, stay safe, and we'll be seeing you at Dog Days Bar & Grill soon!

Guess What's Coming! 2017 Events at Dog Days Bar & Grill

2017 is here and in full swing! Even though Dog Days Bar & Grill is closed at the moment, the beginning of a new year means that spring isn't too far away and we'll be opening our doors back up in just a couple of months! We're already thinking about next season, and the best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks has lined up some of your favorite annual events hosted every year at the Dog. Get out those calendars and start planning some exciting weekends at the lake right now! 



April 21-23: 2017 LOMDA In-Water Boat Show
The Lake of the Ozarks Marine Dealers Association (LOMDA) will once again be bringing the best boats, PWC's, and all the accessories to go along with them for a fun day on the lake to the Dog Days Bar & Grill docks. If you want to stay up-to-date on what's new for the coming summer season, you won't want to miss this incredible show. 



May 6: Spring Harbor Hop
Boating season is unofficially in full swing once the Spring Harbor Hop rolls around. This is an event that residents and visitors alike look forward to every year. Travel by boat to the many participating waterfront bars and restaurants all over the lake area collecting cards for your poker hand. Expect to spend a large portion of your day at Dog Days though, because we always have the best live music going all day long and well into the night.

May 7: Homegrown Festival
Missouri produces some of the best craft beers, wine, and live music, and our 2nd Annual Homegrown Festival will feature all of these! Spend the day enjoying talented entertainers from right here in the Show-Me-State while sampling some of the many delicious beverages made in the area. They all pair amazingly well with everything on the Dog Days menu. This is taking place the day after the Spring Harbor Hop, so plan for an entire weekend full of fun! Just a head's up, if it rains that weekend, we will reschedule this event for May 14. 



June 16-18: Canine Cannonball
Yet another annual event that brings lots of excited visitors to our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant is the Canine Cannonball presented by Dock Dogs. Four-legged competitors spend the weekend vying to be the dog that can jump the highest, farthest, and fastest into the giant pool of water set up next to our docks. This free event is one that the entire family can enjoy. 



June 23: Support Our Troops Poker Run
We love having poker runs on the water here at the lake, and this is another very popular one that takes place every year. Proceeds raised are used by H.E.R.O.E.S. Care to provide support to military families in the communities where they live, as well as the Global Orphan Project, which mobilizes local churches in some of the poorest communities on earth to care for needy children. Active military members are offered free seats on poker run boats. Lots of fun for a couple of great causes.  



July 15: AquaPalooza
Quite possibly our most popular annual event every summer is the single largest 1-day boating event in the area - AquaPalooza! We set up a great big lakeside stage and offer 5 hours of amazing live music that can be enjoyed from either the land or chilling in the lake. There is a waiting list every year for dock slips for this exciting event, and people start reserving their spots before the concert is even over! We'll offer more updates about bands and other details before the big day, but mark that date on your calendar right now! 



TBA: Dueling Dogs
We debuted another brand new event last year due to the popularity of the Canine Cannonball, and everyone loved Dueling Dogs every bit as much as its predecessor. Two dogs race against each other instead of going one at a time in this side-by-side, 2-lane, head-to-head race. Start training now, and get your dog signed up for this cool competition next summer. 



August 25: Shootout Race Pre-party
The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout is a lake area classic. The timed boat races don't take place in our cove, but the awesome pre-party before everything gets started does! Join us while you are down for the weekend before the races for our celebration, and come back daily after the last boat finishes for more food, drinks, live music, and fun. 



October 14: Fall Harbor Hop
The Fall Harbor Hop is the unofficial end to the boating season at the Lake of the Ozarks, even though most avid boaters don't put their toys away until the weather absolutely forces us to! Fall's version of the Spring Harbor Hop is every bit as fun, and a great excuse to enjoy a day cruising the lake. (As if you need an excuse!) 


Dog Days Bar & Grill, Lake of the Ozarks, Harbor Hop

Don't miss the Mardis Gras Pub Crawl!
Coming up very soon (Saturday, February 18, 2017) is the extremely popular Lake of the Ozarks Mardis Gras Pub Crawl. It's still too cold for Dog Days to open up and take part, but our sister restaurant, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach, will be smack dab in the middle of all the action. Expect amazing food, incredible drinks, a festive atmosphere, and the best live music on the pub crawl route when you stop at the Boot. 



Is your calendar full yet?
We sure hope not, because your favorite waterfront bar at the Lake of the Ozarks plans to add even more events to our calendar, plus amazing live entertainment all summer long. You can still find fun at the lake in the winter, but we certainly don't blame you for daydreaming ahead to the coming 2017 Dog Days Bar & Grill season. See you soon!

2016 Gala of Trees Holiday Event at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse

We feel like we get to have all the fun in the summer being the best waterfront bar at the Lake of the Ozarks, but our sister restaurant, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, just keeps getting to have all of the fun this fall. First, they were a part of the Lake Stock Fall Crawl, they are consistently the best place to watch all your favorite sports, and now they are hosting the annual Lake of the Ozarks Gala of Trees, November 17-19



What is the Gala of Trees? 
Dog Days Bar & Grill realizes that many people prefer to put thoughts of Christmas off until after Thanksgiving, but there's a wonderful reason for filling Wobbly Boots BBQ with tons of decorated trees and wreaths the week before Thanksgiving. This event raises money to share between the Lake Ozark Rotary and the Lake of the Ozarks Idiots Club so that they can purchase Christmas gifts for families that might not otherwise get to celebrate the holidays this year.

Lake Regional Hospital generously donates the trees and wreaths, and local businesses and organizations volunteer to decorate them with all sorts of unique items. People are then asked to bid silent-auction-style on each of them during the 3-day event. Winning bidders will get to take home these fully decorated items, and local area children will get to have a happy holiday because of those generous donations.   




Thursday Night Kickoff Event
It is free to bid on the trees and wreaths during the event, but on Thursday evening, there will be a special kickoff party at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. Tickets for that are $20 each, and everyone in attendance will get to enjoy delicious appetizers and soups, one glass of Gala Punch, and the exclusive chance to win a Gala Christmas Wreath that will be given away that very evening at 9 pm. The remaining auction items will be on display until Saturday night. 

Final Bids 
The excitement builds until Saturday evening when final bids will be taken. The incredible Dale Blue will be entertaining the crowd while last-minute bidders cast their bids. The lucky winners will then be allowed to take their beautifully decorated prizes home. 



Don't Miss It!
It only takes a little time to stop by the Gala of Trees and place a bid on your favorite holiday tree or wreath. While you are there, we highly suggest you get a taste of our sister restaurant's unbelievably delicious, hickory-smoked BBQ. We're pretty proud of them, and we just know you're going to love it! 

Dog Days Bar & Grill will be there, and we hope to see all of you there too. Enjoy some holiday spirit and do a good deed by helping us to help the lake area's children. Happy Holidays!

The Lake Stock Fall Crawl is the area's "Woodstock on Wheels" - the grooviest night of fun you'll find this fall. Dog Days Bar & Grill has all of the details for you right here.

The Wristband
It only costs $10 for access to every participating bar and restaurant on this Lake of the Ozarks pub crawl, as well as to ride on the shuttles traveling the route all night long. Every stop will feature its own live music, nightly specials, and crowd full of people having tons of fun. You can pick up your wristband at any participating location stop beginning next week all the way up to the day of the event.

The Buses
Bus transportation is included with the purchase of a wristband so that you are guaranteed a sober ride all evening. Have as much fun as you want and know that you can get to all of the fun safely. Buses will run a continuous loop around the route all night long. They will even make stops at all lodging facilities located on the shuttle route between the Bagnell Dam Strip and Hwy KK. You can find a list of hotels and rental houses on the Lake Stock Fall Crawl website, along with the weekend discounts they will be offering. 

The Boot
Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach, our sister restaurant that is open year-round, is on this year's pub crawl map, and it's a stop you're going to want to spend some quality time at! They'll have incredible live music on their stage, and as always, the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks served alongside delicious drinks. You'll also be able to catch up on the day's sports scores and catch any late-night games on their 21 TVs. 


Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, Osage Beach MO, Lake of the Ozarks, BBQ

Now how about that BBQ? They create their very own housemade BBQ sauce and add it to a delicious variety of tender, hickory-smoked meats. Their award-winning Wobbly Wings are famous around town, and the home style side dishes that accompany the meals are just like grandma used to make! Comfort food at its finest! 

At the bar, they feature 21 different beers on tap, including a few local Missouri brews. This is in addition to their brand new drink menu, featuring lots of specialty cocktails which include a long list of mule drinks plus the Pain in the A** you've come to love right here at the Dog.



Don't Miss the Fall Fun!
The Lake of the Ozarks isn't only a great place to party in the summer. This is an awesome area to be all year long! Make your plans now to take part in the Lake Stock Fall Crawl on Saturday, November 5, 2016, and don't forget to save your appetite for when you stop at Wobbly Boots BBQ
