Marina Grog & Galley - Lake Lotawana
If you're looking for a restaurantIf you're looking for a restaurant out of the norm, this is it. Great Service and super friendly staff. You HAVE to try the Baked Brie appetizer....it's to die for. You can dine with great food selections while overlooking the lake and enjoying the owners prize fish tank and collection of light houses. It's definitely a notch above the norm.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiter staff did a great job.
StuffWaiter staff did a great job.
Stuff shrimp was just ok- little tough
Pork chops very good
Steak very good
Disappointed in green beans and au gratin potatoes, they
were more home style then upscale restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Favorite Local Spot!Love Marina Grog and Galley! A little gem off the beaten path at Lake Lotawana. Go for a cocktail on the patio and finish the experience off with a lovely dinner in one of their charming dinning areas. Thank you Jack for all the wonderful experiences we have had at your lovely establishment, your personal touch is always appreciated and we will continue to come back as often as we can!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for special occasionsThis dinner was a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday -- he absolutely loved it!
The restaurant is older, but beautiful; it almost looks like a yacht club. Though window seating is hard to come by, we had a table close enough to see the view of the lake (which is gorgeous).
Curt was our waiter and he was nothing short of fantastic. He was very attentive and had great recommendations for us.
The food was great as well -- I can't think of a single thing I would change. We started with bacon-wrapped scallops, which were amazing. I had the chicken and lobster roulade and my boyfriend had stuffed pork chops. Neither of us were disappointed and we can't wait to go back (especially when it's warmer).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEnchanted evening!Seafood excellent. Server very attentive. Wine pairing excellent.
Patio overlooking lake w/ great sunset view.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a center table for twoHad a center table for two and felt like we were in the way of everyone.

Love to look out over the lake.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWaterfront dining in KCA former boat repair yard & gas dock redesigned well to become a unique waterfront restaurant.

My husband is a pork fan and he had the stuffed pork chop and it was extremely good. The sides were delicious also. Our waiter was very attentive and explained the menu without hesitation. The restaurant itself needs a little polishing up, but all in all it was a wonderful experience and I would feel comfortable entertaining out of town guests here.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a bit cold in the upperIt was a bit cold in the upper area where we were seated. The waitress did try to turn the fire place on nut it would not light. Unable to move due to the restaurant being at at capacity.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA Really Pleasant Dining ExperienceHaving read many negative reviews of the restaurant, I was very skeptical in dining there for my first visit. Even though the restaurant was extremely busy the evening we were there, my dining partner & I both agreed that the entire experience proved to be a really nice occasion. Our food choices were delicious, the service was professional as well as friendly, and most importantly, we didn't experience any of the problems or disappointments that others had complained about in their reviews.
We'll definitely return once the weather warms so we can hopefully dine outside on the large deck overlooking the lake.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dinner was excellent.The dinner was excellent.
