Where to Eat Jamaican Food At the Lake of the Ozarks


It’s so tasty, MON!

It’s true. You don’t need to head to the Caribbean to try the zesty, spicy, kick-in-your mouth flavors of Jamaica.

During your stay with us at the Lake of the Ozarks, head to Gravois Mills (near mile marker 5) to try out The Jerk Shack!

If this is your first Jamaican cuisine experience, be sure to start with the fried plantains. Crispy, crunchy goodness! For the main dish, there’s plenty of meats to choose from, all cooked with a jerk seasoning that will have your tastebuds craving for more. Their famous Jerk Chicken and Dreadlock Jerk Pork are two entrees we’d highly recommend.

Even though the food and drinks are the star of the show, no restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks makes the top of our list without having a gorgeous view of the lake. Take a look at this photo below to see the view The Jerk Shack has in store.
