Party cove is big especially on major holidays like memorial day, the 4th, and labor day. This 4th was perfect weather. How this works is you get up early in the morning to secure a good spot.

We had heard there was a new restaurant near the outlet malls so we decided to try it. We are so glad we did! The food and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. We had our kids with us and it wasn't a problem at all, in fact they ended up getting play mustaches and having a great time putting them on and being goofy. The...more

The food at HK's is simply put, FANTASTIC. What we liked about HK's was their menu offering steaks, seafood and pasta as well as Lamb and Veal. A pleasant dining experience where we could enjoy a great view of the Lake of the Ozarks and their beautiful japanese garden. They are open year round so in the summer we enjoy going by boat and throughout...more
My husband is a steak fanatic and he says this is the best steak at the lake. I love their fish specials. It's kindof a romantic atmosphere, but you can wear shorts/jeans. They have a great wine list too. Service is always very good (the owner is always the one who greets and seats you) and the wait staff is always very accommodating and...more

Boy, if there is a prototype for a tourist trap, this restaurant is it. First, the billing of "best view of the lake." Well, it depends on where you sit. Mostly you have a good view of the bridge. But the biggest dissapointment about this restaurant is the outrageous, I mean OUTRAGEOUS prices. We're talking entrees that start at $28 and go up to $73 for the surf & turf. Average entree price is about $35. Drinks are equally as expensive, and forget about small prices on the kids' menu - how about $21 for a kid's size filet?
Granted, there are some restaurants around the country and abroad where prices such as this are warranted, and I've eaten in more than a few. When you're paying this kind of money, you expect spactacular food, outstanding service and a meal that will be memorable. Sometimes, you decide to pay for excellence. Not here. Oh, you pay, but waht you get is mediocre, passable and not at all memorable. The food is good but nothing special. The service is good to very good, but again, not outstanding. I'd say when you're in Missouri save your money for when you can go to Tony's or Busch's Grove in St. Louis and get what you pay for.
Unique Suggestions: Simply don't go unless you feel like being ripped off.
You must stay at the Marriott's Tan-Tar-A Resort Goldf Club and Spa. There is so much to do, besides golfing. Whether for forte is golf, boating, horseback riding, bowling or racquet games, this resort is a must. You will have a great time. The keyword here is 'fun' and much of it!!
Fondest memory: So much to do and yet so close to nature. I love wandering throught this resort and marveling at its beauty.
