Table Rock Lake Waterfront Restaurant Guide

Pier 28 Restaurant Table Rock Boating

One of our family’s favorite things to do on Table Rock Lake is go grab lunch or dinner, but take the boat to get there. There are many great and memorable restaurants on Table Rock, but this list includes those that have courtesy slips for boaters.

Pier 28: Located in the Port of Kimberling Marina, our home base at TRL. People come from all over the lake to eat here. It is pricey, but all of the tables can see the water and there is plenty of boat parking. The pizza is excellent, the salads are huge, and I also enjoy the Mahi Mahi sandwich. You can catch live music on summer weekends as well.

Watsons on the Water: Nestled towards the back of Campbell Point Marina in Shell Knob (go all the way past the gas dock) you will find a family owned restaurant. They have indoor and outdoor seating, along with plenty of slips. The food is great (try the pulled pork sandwich), always plenty of beer on ice.

Pizza Hut: Also in Shell Knob, is the classic option Pizza Hut. Can’t miss the dock that has the red Pizza Hut roof. I have eaten there many times, we actually haven’t gone by water yet but know that it’s an option.

Ride the Wave: On the way to Shell Knob you will find Ride the Wave cafe, which is located in Baxter Springs Marina. Cold beer, good food, lake views, and occasionally some live music can be found here!

They don’t have a website, but you can check out their Google Maps page for location and reviews.

Cafe Bridges Pizza: Found in State Park Marina, we haven’t made our way over there in a while, but I believe this used to be the old Danna’s BBQ. If it is the same location, mooring is a little different as they use two large slips so sometimes it’s tricky to navigate depending on the size of the other boats (and yours). The menu looks great, and we absolutely plan on visiting this season.

Indian Point Floating Cafe: There is also a floating cafe at Indian Point. It has been a few years since we’ve tried it, but remember plenty of slips and some good home cooking / comfort food. They have a Facebook site here
