Canoe Club Offers More Than Just Delicious Food

Nick Calkins opened up Canoe Club in 2007 with his old business partner, Andy Manz. Since then, Nick bought Andy’s half of the business when Andy moved to Colorado with his family.

Nick and his wife, Leigh met at CMSU in Warrensburg, Missouri and are often found working at the restaurant, making drinks, running food, or just catching up with locals. They have a son, Winston who likes to help by eating cherries or whip cream and by cleaning off tables too! They happily live here in Lake Lotawana!

Our lake is a popular place to cool off in the summer months and not too far from town. Lotawana means "sparkling water," it’s located right at the corner of Lee’s Summit and Blue Springs, and only about 30 minutes from Kansas City, making it a quick day trip for city dwellers. Keep an eye on our social media for when we feature LIVE local music!


The Canoe Club does not accept reservations. Please make sure all of your party is present at the time of seating. Flip flops and well behaved children are welcome.

Rental of the Hearth Room is available for private parties by calling (816) 578-5700.
