The Lake of the Ozarks finally has a crab shack! L.O.'s Crab Shack opened in Lake Ozark in late 2012, providing a place where you can sit down and enjoy brand new flavors and dishes at the lake.
L.O.'s Crab Shack is located on "restaurant row" along Bagnell Dam Boulevard where you will find some of the best food at the lake. The clean, non-smoking atmosphere is a great hangout where staff wear white shirts and ties, and the chef cooks up flavorful dishes. The décor is as you would expect, down to the tin walls giving it the trademark Caribbean crab shack feel.
The chef serves up one-of-a-kind items and many signature dishes you won't find anywhere else like homemade lump Crab Cakes, Seafood Ravioli, Pan Seared Scallops and oustanding Baked Shrimp Scampi. And don't forget about the succulent one-pound bucket of crab legs.
Even the sides are made with care. The Sweet Potato Fries come with sweet tai chili dipping sauce, or you can order the Grilled Asparagus, Garlic Smash Potatoes and Wild Rice, among many others.
Cheesecake, Key Lime Pie, Créme Brulee, Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake, and a Wild Mango Berry Sorbet are on the dessert menu.
Just because it's a crab shack, doesn't mean they've left out the landlovers. Hand-cut steaks, burgers, chicken sandwiches and salads with homemade dressings are plentiful.
Enjoy the happy hour and drink specials at one of the largest bar at the Lake where there’s always a seat for you. There is an extensive wine list that offers something to suit any budget or palate.
