V. Red Moore's Cafe
Café Specializing in catfish-chicken-and T-bone steak dinners
"Red" and Mrs. Moore prop.
Lake Ozark, Mo.

V. "Red" and Carrie Moore ran the Union Lunch Shop and bus station which was a busy place. It was Lake Ozark's first bus station. In 1933 they built this new rock café in Lake Ozark and it quickly became a popular gathering place. On the morning of December 8, 1939 a fire apparently got started in a small shop between the restaurant and the White House Hotel and the restaurant burned to the ground. The Moore's relocated in a gift shop nearer the dam which they sold to Paul and Nelia Wolff in 1949.
