Our Salads Aren't Just Delicious, They're Healthy Too!

In an effort to add more healthy choices to the menu at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant, we've come up with a lot of new dishes for the 2017 season that we know you're going to love. Our Dog Days Bar & Grill salads go beyond your regular salad, offering amazing flavor along with ingredients full of vitamins, antioxidants, and all around good-for-you deliciousness!

Not Your Everyday Salad
When our chefs make a salad, they're not just throwing some lettuce in a bowl with a crouton or two. Our fresh greens are accompanied by crisp vegetables, flavorful meats, and luscious fruits that pack a gigantic punch for your taste buds. The bold colors of the ingredients are even a feast for your eyes! 

These salads contain ingredients rich in fiber, which is great for boosting metabolism, improving digestion, and is helpful with weight loss. Lots of them are low in cholesterol, which is beneficial to heart health. The high amounts of potassium are wonderful for lowering blood pressure, and the antioxidants in the fruits and vegetables can protect against some cancers. All of the Vitamin C present in many of the salads is incredible for a good immune system too.   

The different ingredients offer different benefits, but don't worry about trying to match a health benefit you are wanting to a particular salad. We've done our best to put a mix of everything into all of the amazing salads on our new menu.

Skinny Drinks
You'll need something to drink along with your meal, but if you're watching your weight as one of your health-conscious choices, some drinks are full of empty calories. A big refreshing glass of water is always an excellent option, and we also have bottled water if you prefer that. Unsweetened iced tea is another refreshing choice, especially with a squeeze of lemon for added Vitamin C. 

Sometimes it's hard to sit lakeside and not enjoy a cocktail, especially if you are on vacation. Well, the best waterfront bar at the Lake of the Ozarks has you covered there too! Our drink menu has a "Skinny Drinks" section so that you can watch your calories while still enjoying a tasty drink. Ingredients include zero-calorie mixers, sugar-free options, and healthy juices. Some choices from the bar are:

  • 6-Pack Mojito
  • Pink Lemonade
  • Mango Tango
  • Light Lime Margarita
  • Strawberry Limeade 
  • Nada Colada
  • Paloma
