We are extremely excited about our brand new kitchen! Last year we had a few growing pains trying to keep up with the many additional orders we had due to all of the new seating. Our original, smaller kitchen wasn't set up to handle all of those extra people, but this year, we're ready for all of them and more! Chef Kevin is especially excited about creating all kinds of incredible dishes in what he's calling his new "Food Lab."
NEW Rooftop Patio Bar
Everyone here at the Dog is also anxiously awaiting the opening of our brand new rooftop patio bar. We expect it to be the most popular spot to hang out this summer. The view from up there is out of this world! You will enjoy an amazing vantage point for the main channel of the Lake of the Ozarks, the Grand Glaize Bridge, and even our very own pool area.
Awesome Events and Live Music
As always, we've got some of the best annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks in the works for you. A few things are still in the planning stages, but we do have dates set for some of the big ones.

Those Incredible Pools
We won't have our pools open right away, but as soon as we're sure that the weather isn't going to take another drastic change and the warmer temperatures are here to stay, we'll let you know when to get those swimsuits out. In case you are unfamiliar with the setup, we have one pool that is family-friendly, and the other has a spectacular swim-up bar and plenty of in-water tables to hold your drinks.
Fantastic Food & Drinks
Last, but certainly not least, we'll be serving up all of your favorite summertime foods and those amazing drinks you love! Expect to see a few new dishes on the menu too.
Just as we have in the last couple of years, we'll be kicking off the season with an Irish-themed Limited-Time Menu in honor of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day. (That holiday happens to fall on a Saturday this year, so we expect it will be even more fun than usual!) We'll be featuring that menu in next week's blog, so be sure to keep an eye out for it!
All of us here at Dog Days Bar & Grill are so glad that we have the majority of the construction behind us and those plans have become a reality! We are especially thankful that this year we have actual restrooms completed for use outside instead of those porta potties from last year. (They were better than nothing, but we're so happy they won't be needed anymore!)
Come on out and see what we've done with the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks for the 2018 season. It all begins again at 11:00 am on Friday, March 9, and we can't wait to see everyone here again!
