Dinner at D'Monaco's

One of the workamping couples -- Ken and Peggy -- has a boat and invited us to cruise Table Rock Lake.  However, the alternator went ka-put, so they invited us to dinner at D'Monaco's on Table Rock.  The rest of us didn't know where we were going, so when we pulled up at the restaurant, we were like, WOW, does someone live here or what?

Inside was as beautiful as the outside...

The restaurant is downstairs.  It was too hot to dine outside, but the pool looked inviting.

Never have I seen a swim-up Tiki Bar -- apparently, I'm not used to how the rich and famous live!

We got the scoop on this beautiful place -- it set vacant for a couple of years and the Chef is renting the restaurant.  The unoccupied condos are for sale for close to a million buck-a-roos, or you can rent one from $700-$1300 per NIGHT!  They are spacious with 1900-3700 square feet and each has a balcony with a hot tub.  Unfortunately, no condo was occupied and there were very few having dinner.  The view of Table Rock Lake from the patio was awesome!

Very few boats in the slips below.

The dinner was delicious but a little pricey.  Each item is a la carte.  I cannot for the life of me remember the name of my meal, but it was Pork Shank with firecracker applesauce with potatoes cooked in duck fat.  

It's probably a million calories, but I had to give it a try.  Alan chose the rib-eye with garlic potatoes, which he said was very tasty.

Interestingly, there was no bread or dessert, but they said they planned to have dessert soon.  The Chef did provide calamari -- he wanted to show the Floridians among us that those in the South know how to cook it.  With all the calories in the meat and side dishes, we definitely did not need the bread or dessert!

And the guys (l-r Ken, Mike, Charlie and Alan)
They look so happy, don't they -- LOL!!

We enjoyed sitting on the patio after dinner.  Even though it was a little warm, there was a nice breeze off the water and it was a beautiful night.  

If any of you are ever in the area, we recommend D'Monaco's.  Just remember it's a little pricey, but it's good and the service was great!

God bless and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Either the food wasn't as good as it looked, or those guys are thinking about the bill! :)

  2. A pretty place, but it seems to be suffering from the economy down turn.

  3. It's fun sometimes to see how the other half lives!

  4. What a beautiful place. The guys look like they're having too much fun!!

  5. I would say the guys were thinking about the
