    We both had the prime rib and it was superb! The shrimp cocktail, potatoes and veggies were excellent as well. Our server, Cindy, is one of the best at the lake! Cindy’s attention to detail is unbelievable. We topped the night off with a tiramisu crème brûlée which Cindy had made. All we can say is Wow! It was awesome! This restaurant is undoubtedly one of the best at The Lake!

    Our waiter “Seth” was excellent ! Friendly, courteous, seemed to know exactly when we needed refills or something additional . Was very familiar with menu and the food was wonderful! The only issue we had dining in the restaurant were the acoustics. It reminded me of Wobbly Boots as far as noise level .

    We had a wonderful dining experience at Tavern on the Bend. We had made reservations for 6pm and were seated promptly. Our server (Jaxon) was one of the most outstanding servers we have ever had. He was extremely courteous and professional. He was very knowledgeable concerning the menu and was very attentive throughout our meal. My wife had the scallops (at Jaxon's recommendation) and she said they were very good. I had the 8 ounce filet and it was excellent. We highly recommend Tavern on the Bend and will definitely be dining there again.

    Overall, the meal was good but not great. Liked the onion rings, good lobster bisque, salad was OK. The steaks weren’t seared,. Good quality prime beef , but w/ no char. Four people ate, with two drinks apiece, appetizers, 4 entrees and it was $300 before tip.

    Have been there twice. Excellent ambiance, menu has excellent assortment, food was excellent, service was just ok and could improve. I think the new operators/owners have done an excellent job of putting forth an excellent venue. It is a terrific asset to our community. It is easy to recommend this to others.

    I highly recommend Tavern on the Bend to anyone celebrating a special occasion. Ben was our server and did an excellent job. The food was exceptional. We enjoyed lobster bites and onion rings as appetizers and our entrees of chicken pasta & catfish were great. Mounted animal heads and fish are not my favorite décor, but it IS Lake of the Ozarks, after all. The overall ambience was very nice. Enjoy!

    The service was excellent. Was a little disappointed with the scallops. They were overcooked and stringy. The French onion soup was delicious. It came with scissors to cut the cheese below the spoon. Genius!

    Tavern on the Bend never disappoints! We took my in-laws out for their wedding anniversary, My Father-in-law said he had never tasted a filet so good! My Mother-in-law had the salmon. It's presentation and taste were perfect! Delishious (I know it's spelled wrong but that's how she says it). I had the prime rib and it is ALWAYS spectacular! Add a salad, dinner roll (with room temperature butter) and a baked potato, and you have the perfect meal!

    Being a fairly new restaurant, it takes time to be on a A-game. Our experience last night was not a good experience. Our reservation was for 6:00 p.m., we arrived at 5:50 and were sat right away. We ordered right away and it took a very long time to get our food. We ordered an appetizer, my husband order a salad, baked potato and a cheeseburger. I ordered a 8 oz. filet well done with a side of creamed spinach and a spinach salad which I split with our daughter. It took 45 minutes to get our entrees'. The filet was undercooked and had to be returned to the chef to be prepared as ordered. Our waiter mentioned that the chef would not butterfly the filet as ordered therefore it was delivered uncooked, rare and added time on to our wait. We were served our side of creamed spinach to eat until our filet was cooked to order. We were disappointed in the lack of service and not offered to speak to a manager. The filet was charred on each side and very red in the middle. We would recommend trying the restaurant after they have been open longer, sometimes it takes a while for a new restaurant to develop a proven routine.

    Food was outstanding! Best we’ve ever had anywhere. From the onion rings and French onion soup, to the steaks and au gratin potatoes, everything was superb with incredible flavors. The wine pairing made it incredible! Ambience was fantastic with amazing views of the lake. Service was top notch as well.

    Another WONDERFUL experience at Tavern on the Bend! The ambiance is spectacular with the lake view and the attractive decor. The cuisine is absolutely delicious and the service is top notch. Our server was a lovely woman named CINDY and she made our evening so special and took wonderful care of us. We ordered the filet and pork chop and both were cooked to perfection. The French onion soup has become a favorite and the creamed spinach is a must! Each time we dine here we both comment that this new restaurant is the best cuisine and service we’ve had at the lake in 15 + years and definitely the best filet! We love arriving early and stopping at the bar for a cocktail prior to our reservation. The two bartenders are so friendly and professional…. I had the best French 75 I’ve ever ordered! There is a great assortment of wines and bourbon as well. This restaurant is now our “go to” fine dining choice at the lake and we are so thrilled it opened!

    Four of us dined together on Saturday evening, and we were thrilled with the quality of the food, the beautiful decor (WOW--that wine cellar room!!), and the excellent service. It's wonderful to have another top-quality, fine dining restaurant here at the Lake. We had the lobster bites and spinach-artichoke dip as appetizers. Salmon, sea bass, and steaks for our main course. Soups were so good that we took home an additional bowl of the lobster bisque. (The French Onion was equally delicious.) We look forward to making this one of our regular stops.

    The food and service were very good. We appreciated our server telling us about the history of the restaurant. I would have liked a little softer lighting to be able to enjoy the lake view better. The wine choices are excellent! We will definitely go back.
