Fine dining, first-class accommodations, meeting and event space — all found at the Regalia Hotel & Conference Center.
If you’ve ever dined at the Royal Catch Bar & Grill, you may have had the chance to meet executive chef Rodney Bachtel.
“I have a really deep passion for food,” Bachtel said. “I like to walk the floor during food service to ask about the experience guests receive. It’s my job to meet high expectations.”
With four culinary degrees and over 40 years of experience in high-end restaurants, Bachtel is creating a unique experience for hotel guests and locals who come into the Regalia Conference & Event Center to dine at one of the many restaurants.
“We want to bring the best high-end culinary experience the Lake has ever seen,” he said.
The hotel’s flagship restaurant, Royal Catch Bar & Grill, offers a classic breakfast menu, a full lunch menu and a variety of entrées for dinner including steaks, seafood and pasta.
Bachtel is in the process of making changes to the menus and wants to implement more of a scratch kitchen using fresh herbs grown on-site, and the highest quality meat and seafood available.
In the future Bachtel would like to offer table-side stations, where chefs come to your table to make a fresh pasta dish or dessert in order to give diners more of an experience. He’s also planning to host celebrity chefs for special events.
Also in the works is brining in renowned local chef (and world champion pastry chef) Andre Torres to make pastries and other desserts.
A 5-star Resort at the Lake
No expense has been spared to the upgrades and improvements made at the Regalia Hotel & Conference Center in Lake Ozark. Under new ownership and management years of work done behind the scenes are now obvious when you walk through the doors and into a classy, elegant and refined resort.
The Regalia is open to the public and has a variety of options for locals and vacationers to unwind.
Open to the public is the fitness center, with more than 50 cardio and weight stations, and an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Both have been completely remodeled.
The Hippopotamus Swim-Up Bar is the largest swim-up bar in the Midwest and is open to guests and the general public. It’s the place to be in the summer when outdoor concerts are held and you can order tropical drinks brought to you in a 32 ounce bucket.
Business professionals can count on the Regalia to host their corporate event. With the addition of 500 parking spaces, the Regalia can host large or small conventions, weddings, special events, retreats and other functions. The 40,000-square-foot venue will be able to handle up to 3,400 people.
You can find live bands and other special events held throughout the year. Check out the Dance Party every Friday and Saturday night at Foxxy Roxy. Doors open at 10 p.m. There is no cover and you can take part in a late-night buffet. On Wednesdays a Bags League plays at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $10/person.
The hotel is in the process of opening a spa that will offer a wide range of services. Next year, be on the lookout for a sports venue to be added with a variety of outdoor games including volleyball, golf, pickleball and other activities.
