Visited here with my husband for a dinner date. The restaurant itself lacks ambience and is very casual not a place for a nice dinner. The food was pretty good but tasted like we were eating leftover BBQ that was warmed up for us. The side dishes were okay but nothing special. We will try it again sometime and give... More

Over the years, my wife and I have made a habit of stopping at Half Sauced when we arrive at the Lake. We get carry out, taking it home to eat as we open up the house for the weekend. My wife gets the pulled pork sandwich, I get the burnt ends sandwich. We both get the "pit" beans and... More

There are several BBQ establishments at the lake but this is the best! They do not offer a full bar for beverages and the atmosphere is small and quaint, but very good food!

We hit Half Sauced after the lunch hour, so service was great & the wait for food was minimal. My son & I enjoyed their Brunswick stew made with brisket & a tomato base. Excellent! Then, the guys split a sampler platter & we had to box up a slab of ribs to take home. Just a great deal to... More

Enjoyed a great pork chop dinner. Good selection on the menu. Was fast and friendly, close to the outlet mall and other attractions.

I make some pretty good smoked meats but when it comes to brisket, I won't waste my time. I'll go to Half-Sauced!! Not too impressed with their ribs or burnt ends. Good atmosphere, good quality and definitely affordable. Two people shared the combo platter and it was plenty. Personnel were also very friendly and nice. Worth the time.

The food is always good at Half Sauced. My son was visiting and he loves their burnt ends so took him there for his birthday. He said they were very good. My husband enjoyed his brisket also. I was a little disappointed in the potato/sausage soup. I usually get pulled pork and wish I would have ordered that. They were... More

I have been going to Lake of the Ozarks for 7 years and finally tried this restaurant. OMG it was so good. We told the waitress it was our first time and she suggested the sampler platter for two. It has brisket, pulled pork, burnt ends and ribs. You also get to choose two sides. I have not stopped talking... More

I've ate at them all, but for your money, this one is the best at the lake, hands down. I have smoked my pulled pork and never have gotten it anywhere near the quality as theirs.
