Hot spot: Get ‘Nauti’ at NautiFish Rum Bar & Cantina

Cruising in from the water, the bright blue building and yellow sails flying in wind are the just the first signs of the new life that has been breathed into the Niangua. Welcome to the NautiFish Rum Bar, where waterfront dining and friendly atmosphere aren’t the only things they have to offer.

Adorned in hand-painted signs, the door reads “Get Nauti.” As you step inside the expansive dining room and dance floor, the reason is all to clear. Next to the newly renovated bar built with rum barrels, sit eight large jars. This is the rum infusion station where you can try a Rum Flight of 3 different rums or our 'specialty drink - the Aqua de' Nauti'.

The NautiFish is not your typical Lake bar. The expansive menu boasts unique tasty, signature items, like the “Saba Rocks” – golden fried cheese stuffed sausage balls, the G'NORMOUS nachos and new for 2018 Elote Shots.


If you are a burger lover, you are in business here!  All of our burgers are 100% hand-pattied 1/2 pound all beef burgers, seasoned with our special blend. Take the “All Nighter” for example, 1/2 burger topped with an over easy egg, two slices of bacon and topped with bloody mary hot sauce and ghost pepper cheese.

New for 2018 is an added 'Cantina' inspired menu. Visitors were always asking where to get good Mexican food on the water.  Well, it's here at the NautiFish Cantina...slow roasted carnitas, Cuban black beans, chipotle spiced chicken, and the BEST Baja Fish Tacos on the water.

Being the only waterfront bar and restaurant on the Niangua, the owners are looking forward to bringing the life back into the west side of the Lake. Always interacting with the customers, Rob, Safety Bob and Mamma Mary are looking forward to being part of the community and love to get feedback, comments, and suggestions.
