According to Missouri's Best Awards 2024, the winner for the best American Cuisine in the Show-Me State is a place called The Bend at the Duck in the Lake of the Ozarks. The Bend at the Duck according to their own Facebook page is a "superb" place for American cuisine. On their website, they say...

"Visit us by boat or car! A local family owned casual fine-dining american cuisine, steakhouse, and seafood grill. Come try for yourself and find out why we were voted Missouri's 2024 Best American Cuisine and 2023 People's Choice at WingFest!"

What is on the Menu at The Bend at the Duck?

The menu is loaded with Chef Roxan's personal takes on classic American dishes like the Black Peppercorn Steak, the Steak and Lobster, the Prime Rib, Lemon Pepper Chicken, the Apple Thyme Chutney Pork Porterhouse, Oyster Rockefeller, Chicken Wings, and of course a Burger. They also have a happy hour menu where you can get things like the Loaded Nachos or the Pork Wings, plus a bunch of terrific cocktails, beers, and more, to see the menus for yourself, and to learn more about The Bend at the Duck, click here!

I have never been to The Bend at the Duck but the menu looks terrific, the pictures of the food and the views on the website look great, and if it beat out all of the great St. Louis and Kansas City restaurants to win this award they must be doing something right!
