We thoroughly enjoyed our amazing dining experience here! The services was outstanding and the quality of the food was perfection. My friend said her steak was the best she'd ever had!!! One would think it was a big city establishment; the chef easily rates as high and above any of the best fine dining I've ever experienced! Reservations are recommended.

This is probably the best high end restaurant on this side of lake. Way to far to drive if your staying on the other side. The fried lobster and shoestrings are a lot like the Blue Heron but without the marvelous view of the lake. The filet is just average and the prime rib was dry and lacking the Wow!... More

We have dined here many times, but not since they changed up the menu..two years maybe. The place was packed for off season, which is great. Now is the time for locals and second home owners to dine here. My hubbie ordered the pork Osso Bucco and sweet potato mash and a coffee cream reduced sauce, and I ordered the... More

Best filet I've ever eaten; seared on the outside, but juicy, melt in your mouth. Server Laurel provided excellent service. When we arrived, we heard what we thought was piped in music. We learned it was their lounge singer. After dinner we sat at the grand piano and listened to him croon everything from Sachmo's What a Wonderful World to... More

This restaurant is nothing less than AMAZING! The bar with perfectly lit, with soft piano music (live) to start our evening. From the appetizers, to the main meal, and the service.....the very best! Don't miss the calamari appetizer and the fried lobster! I really enjoyed the family style salad, with delicious bread and dipping oil. The service was also impressive,... More

First time at the restaurant for our semi-annual girls weekend. The food and service were fantastic. Our server Laurel was the best. We had the prime rib, salmon, filet and fried lobster. She offered us a free wine tasting and we drank the wine all night long. She was exceptional and we will be back in the spring.

Driving through the Ozarks and looking for a place to eat and ran across JJ's at the Copper Pot. Talk about a lucky find... It is more upscale and a bit more expensive than we were looking for but it was well worth it. I had the rainbow trout and my wife had the seafood ravioli. All of the details... More

As usual, the wife and I ordered way more than we could eat, but it was all so damned wonderful. She did the prime rib, I opted for seafood ravioli, and we split a batter dipped lobster. Throw in a baked potato, lobster risotto, and sautéed veggies, and wow. No room for deserts or even coffee, but those looked great... More
