Broomball Tournament ~ January 2016

The Lake Area is famous as a summertime destination, but there are plenty of fun things to do at the Lake all year long. Old Kinderhook wants to personally invite you to participate in a fun-filled family activity to help beat the winter blues - the Old Kinderhook Broomball Tournament!


What Is Broomball?

Broomball is a fast-paced, high-energy game that your whole family is sure to enjoy. It's similar to hockey in that teams will gather on the The Ice to compete for first place, but Broomball differs from hockey in several ways:
  • Players wear their own street shoes, not hockey skates
  • Players use brooms instead of hockey sticks
  • Players hit balls, rather than hockey pucks

Old Kinderhook hosts the only Broomball Tournament at the Lake of the Ozarks. This is the first year we've introduced it, and so far it's been very popular. Don't miss out on all the fun at Old Kinderhook!

The Kinderhook Salad - There's Nothing Like It!

There are only three certified executive chefs at the Lake of the Ozarks - and two of them reside at Old Kinderhook in Camdenton, MO! Chef Thomas Robinett and Chef John Biggs are always looking for ways to improve and embellish our menus to create the best dining at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we invite you to come experience it for yourself at The Trophy Room.

This week, we want to share with you one of our signature selections that truly sets us apart: The Kinderhook Salad.


The Backstory

As Chefs John Biggs and Thomas Robinett were contemplating ways to enhance the menu over the summer, they knew they wanted to make a salad that would compete with a popular Midwest salad known as the Mayfair salad. The Mayfair salad originated at the Mayfair hotel in St. Louis and can currently be found on many menus across Missouri. When the two chefs at our golf resort at the Lake of the Ozarks decided to put their heads together and create their own salad - one that would rival the Mayfair and be worthy to appear on menus across the country - the Kinderhook Salad was born.  They wanted to not only make a great salad but make one that would far surpass the already known Mayfair salad.  The salad they came up with is the Kinderhook salad.  The dressing is what truly sets this salad apart, containing a unique blend of garlic, celery, dijon mustard, eggs, anchovies, olive oil, and onions, as well as other ingredients on occasion.

The Kinderhook Salad


The Kinderhook Salad features a romaine heart in the center of a baked parmesan tuile (a savory baked wafer) with The Trophy Room's house dressing. These base ingredients are combined with a concasse of roasted heirloom tomatoes tossed with roasted garlic oil, salt and pepper, and finished with a very large warm buttered crouton. Needless to say, this salad has come a staple on the menu at The Trophy Room.

Book Your Reservations At The Trophy Room Today!

Complete with a warm ambiance, gorgeous views, and frequent live entertainment, The Trophy Room is open daily (year-round) for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Our chef has prepared menus ranging from sandwiches and pizza to steak and seafood (and everything in between). Call The Trophy Room at 573-317-3560 to reserve your indoor, outdoor, or private dining today!
