    Come join us for a casual dining experience that combines the best of southern home-style fare with the rustic elegance of a century-old log structure, steeped in history as rich as the sumptuous desserts prepared by our chefs.

    There is no mystery as to what attracted entrepreneur Jude Simmons to this slice of Ozarks wilderness. The gentle hillsides were an ideal backdrop for his rustic getaway that would reflect the grandeur of Adirondack lodges and entertain in casual elegance. The home featured native materials, including a huge stone fireplace that still warms our dining room when fall and winter chill the air. Today, hand-wrought metal chandeliers cast a warm glow over antique furnishings and our 100-year-old mahogany bar. Bark covered logs and exposed rafters are a fitting complement to the sporting gear and animal mounts that adorn our walls in the Bass Pro tradition. Outdoor balcony seating is an option as weather permits.

    Join us for Sunday Brunch, available every Sunday from 10:00AM - 2:00PM.

    Buzzard Bar’s Singin’ Cowboy
    If you have ever been to Buzzard Bar at Big Cedar Lodge, you probably fell in love with the entertainment from the “Singin' Cowboy".

    Clay Self started working at the Stables at Big Cedar Lodge in 1989. Clay had no intention of ending up in Missouri but luckily fell in love with the Ozarks nearly 30 years ago while visiting family, and with such talent, talked his way into playing music at the Buzzard Bar. Now every Wednesday through Monday, Clay entertains the guests with his comedy and music routine.

    Aside from his amazing “Singin' Cowboy” acts at Big Cedar Lodge, Clay has become more widely known for his performances at the Atlanta 500, PBR, and the Grand Ole Opry. He also continues to play for Big Cedar’s campfires and Chuckwagon Rides and, “can’t wait to see what the next 20 years have in store.”

    Come to Big Cedar and see why Clay is everyone’s favorite Singin' Cowboy!

    Book your reservation at Arnie's Barn Restaurant here!

    To honor Arnold Palmer, Big Cedar Lodge founder Johnny Morris asked his wife Jeanie to help find an old barn near Palmer’s hometown of Latrobe, Pennsylvania to house the golf pro shop and a second restaurant at Top of the Rock. She delivered. Right in Palmer’s own backyard, Mrs. Morris found Arnie’s Barn. Local Ozark craftsman Danny Schwartz and his family members all joined in to carefully disassemble the barn and its 46-foot timbers, numbering each piece, transporting it and re-erecting the barn at Top of the Rock. Some of the timbers from the barn – which included the now extinct American chestnut – are so old, Top of the Rock historians are carbon dating them. When the barn was built 150 years ago, some of those timbers were already well over 100 years old. 

    From Arnie’s Barn, guests enjoy magnificent views of the driving range along with unique memorabilia and golf gear found nowhere else. You don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy an afternoon at Arnie’s Barn. The restaurant serves contemporary Mexican cuisine, perfect before or after a round on the links. And here at Arnie’s Barn, an immense fireplace, balcony seating and a cozy lounge area make up the backdrop for many a tall tale of a hole-in-one or monster bass hooked on Table Rock Lake.
