The Perfect "Football Foods" for Watching the Games

This time of year, weekends are all about football, as well as every Monday and Thursday night. (At least, that's how it is at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill!) Everything on our menu is delicious, but there are certain foods that seem to go hand in hand with watching the games. 

Our sports bar & grill at the Lake of the Ozarks offers quite a few "football foods" that are favorites across the board. Of course, we always put our very own #WickedGood twist on the recipes to make them even more irresistible! Here are some of the most popular foods people order during football season around here. 

A big plate of hot wings and an ice-cold beer seems to be a staple of most football fans' diets. We've got plenty of bottled and draft beers to choose from here at Wicked Willie's and 4 different kinds of fresh, jumbo wings to enjoy. Be sure to ask your server for bleu cheese or ranch and celery sticks to go with them.

It's National Chicken Month - Celebrate With #WickedGood Chicken

September happens to be National Chicken Month and Wicked Willie's Sports Grill in Osage Beach happens to have some #WickedGood chicken dishes on the menu. In addition to being the best sports bar at the Lake of the Ozarks with 31 TVs, 3 giant projection screens, and ALL the games, Wicked Willie's also has a diverse menu from classic burgers and appetizers to gourmet entrees. Today we're giving you a closer look at the tasty chicken dishes we're cooking up for you. 

First, the Facts
So, why should you make an effort to eat more chicken? Well, chicken not only tastes good, but it's actually good for you too. It's an excellent source of protein, which your body uses for muscle growth and development. Protein also helps to support a healthy body weight. The high level of the amino acid, tryptophan, increases the serotonin levels produced by the brain, which boosts your mood and consequently can relieve stress.

The many vitamins and minerals present in chicken do a b…

Don't Miss Our Chiefs Season Opener Watch Party

FOOTBALL IS BACK! If you haven't already, be sure to mark your calendar to remind you to join us at the best place to watch football at the Lake of the Ozarks for the Kansas City Chiefs season-opener. This Sunday, September 8, 2019, Wicked Willie's Sports Grill is throwing our annual Chiefs Season Opener Watch Party. (If you haven't attended this exciting event before, make it a priority this year!)  

Chiefs vs. Jaguars
We get fans for lots of different NFL teams at our Lake of the Ozarks sports bar each season but the KC Chiefs have a special place in our hearts. For that reason, we make an event out of each Chiefs game, all season long, especially the season-opener. 

This year they're kicking off their season against the Jacksonville Jaguars at noon. (We open at 11:00 am, giving you plenty of time to come in early and claim your favorite seat!) Of course, with 31 TVs and 3 giant projection screens positioned around both the bar and restaurant areas, all the seats offer …

Are You Ready For Some Football? (Of Course You Are!)

We're excited about college football getting back into gear (as we mentioned in last week's "Labor Day Weekend Means College Football is Back!") Even so, Wicked Willie's Sports Grill is already looking ahead to the following week when the NFL season officially begins. (It seems like we've waited so long!) Of course, you all realize that this means it's time for another Chiefs Season Opener Watch Party!

Let's Go Chiefs! 
The first game of the 2019 season will be on Thursday, September 5 at 7:00 pm between the Packers and the Bears. We have fans from all over visit the lake area, so you can usually find a fan for just about every team playing. Still, around these parts, the majority of our sports fans tend to cheer for the Kansas City Chiefs. 

For that reason, we make an event out of every Chiefs game, all season long. This will begin with our annual season-opening party when the Chiefs take on the Jaguars at noon on Sunday, September 8. (Just in time for …

Labor Day Weekend Means College Football is Back!

A lot of people get excited about Labor Day Weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks because they plan to spend the extended holiday weekend on the water. We have to admit, that can be fun too but an even better reason to get excited is the fact that college football is back! 

The very first game of the season is this Saturday, 8/24 but Labor Day Weekend is going to have the bulk of the games. As always, as long as they are being broadcast, our Lake of the Ozarks sports bar & grill will have all the games! With 31 TVs and 3 giant projection screens at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill, you won't have to miss a minute of the action.  

We get a nice variety of college football fans in the lake area with so many visitors from so many places around the country. Even if your team isn't playing one of the games before Labor Day Weekend, join us anyway. It will be good practice for next week. Get ready (and get excited) because this list of upcoming games is extensive!

Join Us This Friday for a Draft Beer Party!

We serve an awesome selection of ice-cold, refreshing, draft beers at our Lake of the Ozarks sports bar. We also love throwing exciting parties at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill. This Friday, August 16 from 5:00-8:00 pm we're combining those two things and hosting a Draft Beer Party with our friends from Sudwerk Brewing Company

Sudwerk Brewing Co.
Since 1989, Sudwerk Brewing Co. in Davis, California, has been combining traditional German brewing methods with modern, West-Coast craft beer practices. This company is known as a pioneer of lager in microbrewing. 

The brewery was originally founded by two German descendants, Ron Broward and Dean Unger. Both were determined to share the taste of the German lagers they loved while striving to push the boundaries of traditional lager. That tradition continues today. 

The flavors produced by Sudwerk Brewing Co. showcase clean, crisp yeast character, powerful flavor-packed hop bombs, and beautiful malt backbones, all on a lager frame. Their…
