We are so lucky to have amazing restaurants on Table Rock Lake, but when we first purchased our home 7 years ago, we weren’t sure what restaurants were accessible by water, what they served and if they offered a courtesy dock.

I have compiled a list including location, courtesy dock information, tips, important details, hours, contact information and an interactive map to easily locate them. Save this list by using the bookmark feature in your browser to reference on your next trip to Table Rock Lake! Please note that each restaurant includes the most-up-to-date information available as of June 4th, 2024.
