Just downstairs from Devil's Pool, you'll find a warm welcome at Buzzard's Bar. Legend and superstition were instrumental in naming this comfortable retreat, and while we don't expect you to find any live buzzards lurking in the shadows, you certainly will find an excellent selection of specialty drinks. There's comfortable seating indoors amid antique appointments and the usual collection of furred and feathered friends, or you may choose an outdoor setting on our patio or overlooking the pool.
Our menu offers many of the same delicious entrees as Devil's Pool, and we boast our own great selection of sandwiches and salads for people on-the-go. Our house-made soups are great as a companion or on their own. Sweet potato chips accompany our sandwiches and you'll want to try our very own Blueberry Poppy Seed salad dressing, the house specialty, served both upstairs and down.
Every evening, we'll feature local entertainers including our very own Singin’ Cowboy playing and singing all your favorites.

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 who has since performed in the Grand Ole Opry 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 20 years ago while visiting family, and with such talent, talked his way into playing music at the Buzzard Bar. Now every Wednesday through Sunday Clay entertains the guests with his comedy and music routine.
Clay says he, “had no idea how fast Big Cedar would grow and become such a popular destination for so may people,” and “the fact that we are a part of the Bass Pro Shops family has made the last 20 years extra special.”
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!
