Howdy Folks,


Happy Birthday America- God bless our beautiful country! Happy Independence Day- we’re the land of the free because of the brave. Gary Hunt’s band Colonel Ford and the Roughriders kick off the holiday weekend at the Grove.  We’ll be closed Saturday to go fishing, pick guitar, swim and eat ice cream.


Hope everyone is enjoying our Missouri lakes, streams, and rivers with floats, boating, picnics, fishing, and backyard barbecues.  Good to know that some things never change.  Stovall’s is a great place to get an old fashioned dose of summer: live country and western music, dancing, conversation, libation, barbecue and a campfire under the stars – everything great in America.


Our Sunday Music Series on July 12th features the acoustic duo Jim and Dawn of Claysville Road Band with mouth watering juicy ribs grilled by competitive barbecuers- CJ and Sammy.  Can’t get any better than smoked ribs and country music, so be sure to mark your calendars now- we hope you’ll be fat, sassy and happy.  Please note later starting time of 5:00 to 9:00, doors will open at 4:00.


The best parties are at Stovalls, great music, convivial atmosphere and nice ice cold beer.    Whether 10 or 100, let us do the worry ( and the cleanup)  for your social planning- birthdays, family reunions, black parties, sports leagues, or even a quick and easy gathering of your best buddies. Grab some snacks, and gather round.


Private parties can be arranged on days and evenings: Sunday, thru Wednesday, and Saturday afternoons. Party Packages are available. Tell us your budget and we can plan the rest.
