Regardless of how hungry you actually are, the appetizer section at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant & bar is a great place to start. You'll find tasty app choices on both our regular menu and at the Sushi & Asian Grill. Maybe you could take an "appetizer tour" of the place and order a few from each kitchen!
