Bagnell Dam Strip at Lake of the Ozarks

The Bagnell Dam Strip has been a huge tourist attraction since the beginning of the Lake of the Ozarks in 1931.  Throughout the years hundreds of thousands of people have walked this road.  The past couple of years we have seen a decline in traffic on the strip, but with new developments and attractions moving to the strip, and the combined effort to clean it up, the Bagnell Dam Strip is back in full swing!
On the Strip:
You still have your classic shops like Dogpatch which is the longest continually operating business on the strip and originally opened in 1947!  It has all sorts of nik naks, souvenirs, and much much more!
You still have the Rebel Arcade that is packed with hundreds of games.  There are 2 ice cream shops, and 1 new Frozen Yogurt Bar.  Lots of T-Shirt shops, and if you left your swimsuit at home, come on down!
What better way to remember your Trip to the Strip than to take an Old Time Photo that will last forever!  Go in and choose from hundreds of costumes and then play out hilarious old western scenes to capture the moment!  It's a blast!

Wild Bacon: A new Breakfast/Brunch restaurant on the strip, that is guaranteed to make your mouth water!  They have the most amazing Breakfast items!  (Try the French toast) #Wildbacon

Stewarts:  One of the most well known diners that has been around for years because of their giant cinnamon rolls.

Tuckers Shuckers Oyster &Tap:  Another new Restaurant on the Bagnell Dam Strip, you can't miss it!  Their Oysters are flown in daily so they are always fresh, but their menu has much more than just oysters!  Go in and sit upstairs on the deck and see the whole strip!  Don't forget to take a picture in front of the old Chris Craft boat upstairs!  (Try the Lobster Grilled Cheese and Oysters) #TuckersShuckers

Casablanca/Casagrotto:  A recently renovated restaurant that has awesome food and live bands upstairs.  Don't forget to go downstairs to Casagrotto for the best Pizza on the Strip!  (You won't go wrong with any kind of Pizza!)
