One thing that every single visitor to Table Rock Lake does is eat. But eating in Ozark Mountain Country is a little different than eating in most other tourist destinations. It isn't just about filling the tummy that counts...it is about filling the vacation full of wonderful memories. Dining should be an experience and you will find just that whether you feast on a full chicken and all the fixings at the Dixie Stampede or mosey up to one of the many family style all-you-can-eat buffets.
The biggest obstacle might be trying to decide what type of food you desire...Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Seafood, Steak, or, of course, all-American comfort foods. Every type of restaurant from fast food to full service, casual to elegant is waiting for your discovery. The evening might call for formal...around romantic candlelight and multiple courses. It might be better served with a submarine sandwich and a soda to go for that sunset cruise aboard the boat.
The sweet tooth will surely believe it has found heaven with homemade pies, fresh bakeries, candy shops, ice cream parlors and amazing frozen custard. The area is somewhat famous for the traditional Ozark Mountain Breakfast featuring flapjacks so big the edges fall over the plate. Every dining experience is an opportunity to love the region even more.
