Hey Rick: Well the usual suspects like Larry's on the Lake, Fish & Co., Redhead Yacht Club, Captain Rons, Angelo's, (formerly Pier 31), Boathouse and landlocked places like Mexicali Blues, Half Sauced, Domenicos, Golden Door, J. Brunners, Willows, Malarkys, Wobbly Boots - gosh it really gets complicated. Of course we tend to stay on the west side off Hwy 54 and up east to Osage Beach. Sorry to hear about your experience with Niangua Falls. We haven't tried them lately. Not sure where I'll be by the 15th but enjoy the crazies during the week.
