We spend a large part of our summer at our lake house nestled in southwest Missouri on Table Rock Lake. While we often make picnic sandwiches to enjoy on the boat, we also love dining out and supporting local Table Rock Lake restaurants.

We have almost every restaurant accessible by water and frequent many of them. It’s one of our favorite things to do on Table Rock Lake!

I have compiled a complete list of restaurants accessible by water on Table Rock Lake with contact information, hours (when available), menu offerings and an interactive map. Be sure to bookmark this page so you can access it by land or water!

I hope this makes your time at the lake even more enjoyable! If you have anything to add, please do so in the comments below. I love “meeting” a neighbor and chatting with others who love Table Rock as much as we do!
