Having a great time at Big Cedar Lodge Buzzards Bar. We arrived by boat on Table Rock Lake, took a complimentary shuttle to the bar for drinks and a bite to eat.

Everything about this place is worth the visit. The food is excellent, the ambiance is unique, and the live musician was funny and family-friendly. A little pricey ($15-$20/person), but a worthwhile splurge.

The food is OK, the seating process is terrible and the entertainment is great! I get the first come, first serve concept. But we were visiting Big Cedar during a very busy time. The restaurant allows you to seat yourself but it was always full when we tried to go there. There were people coming in through 2 different entrances... More

I loved everything about Big Cedar Lodge - except the Buzzard Bar. The staff was lovely, but, the food was average at best. We ordered a steak medium rare and it arrived well done the first time - I sent it back and it came uncooked - like literally the fat was still white - yuck.

This is the best spot for evenings while on Big Cedar. Such a fun atmosphere. Tiny little dive bar, wonderful music, and flowing drinks.

Enjoyed catching up with Tim the bartender and taking his recommendation on the Catfish with beans and rice...delicious. Nice wine selection and some good beers on tap.

On our recent trip to BCL we made our way every night to listen to Clay perform and was lucky enough to see one of his sons on the last night. The food is good and reasonably priced, the drinks are a little pricey. We have always been lucky to get great service!
