The Lake's New Hotspot: Redhead Lakeside GrillBy Kathy Roberts, L.O. Profile Editor | Photos by Rachel Taylor

Navigate your family over to the Lake’s newest restaurant, The Redhead Lakeside Grill. Redhead opened in late June on the 21 mile marker. This establishment is owned by Mark Waddington and his redheaded wife Rachel.

Mark and Rachel are retired and spend most of their time here at the Lake of the Ozarks and visiting family in Nebraska. Along with starting Redhead Lakeside Grill, Mark also is an owner with Performance Boat Center, and together they have created the Redhead Yacht Club. The facility has slips and fuel, a service center and storage, as well as a showroom.

Mark’s love for boating and the water began on the Missouri River in Nebraska. Since then his fondness for boating has grown with his children. “We all love boating,” he says.

When he decided to build Redhead Yacht Club, there was already a plan in effect to continue the growth of the marina with a restaurant, as well as a bar and pool facility. He then hired some renowned local professionals to help handle that aspect of the business for him.

Chef Pierre Torres is the executive chef. Pierre learned his profession working with his father, Andre Torres, and attending culinary school at Johnson and Wales University. Since then, Pierre has been developing his craft working at local restaurants for more than 20 years.

The Lake's New Hotspot: Redhead Lakeside Grill“I never was a person who was fond of being in an office setting,” Chef Torres says. “My greatest working fulfillment has always been in the kitchen with my family, learning new things and developing my passion for food.”

The Redhead Lakeside Grill is two floors of great dining and entertainment experiences, with a dinner menu upstairs in the evening, casual dining on both levels for lunch, Neapolitan wood-fired pizza, a late-night menu and a breakfast buffet on the weekends in season. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating on both levels, and of course, a fabulous view of the Lake. All that, and they are open year-round!

A few other menu specialties to be sure to try includes the Cuban Mojo Pork (homemade pork belly with Swiss, pickles and dark ale mustard on a French baguette), Lobster Hushpuppies, Sweet Potato Salad, Seared Chilean Sea Bass (with mango coulis, lime gremolata, carrots, leeks, and roasted fingerling potatoes). They also offer jerk chicken and hand-cut steaks.

Redhead’s also has the pool that was in the original plan. Can’t leave that out! Sitting poolside with a cold drink and an appetizer, while the boat techies take care of your ride… just relax, eat and enjoy!
