Cozy Comfort Foods to Warm You Up Inside & Out

Image
As the weather gets colder outside, it's natural to have cravings for comforting foods "just like Mom used to make." You know, the kind that will warm you up from the inside out. Our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant & bar happens to have quite a few items made with fresh ingredients and creative recipes on the menu that fit that description perfectly. 

The Joy of Comfort Food
Wicked Willie's Sports Grill is a great place to go for a hot, delicious meal that will make you feel good inside and out. That's the whole purpose of "comfort foods." They are meant to comfort you with both physical warmth and satisfaction as well as mental happiness. Nearly all comfort foods are served as a hot dish and they tend to have a higher calorie count and carbohydrate level.

Another thing that qualifies a food for this category is when a person has a nostalgic or sentimental memory tied to it. Enjoying something you had often as a kid can bring back old, happy memories wh…

It's Seafood Month AND Pizza Month - Celebrate Both At Wicked Willie's!

Image
At the beginning of October, most people have their minds on Halloween. At our Lake of the Ozarks sports bar, we're mainly focused on all the awesome sports currently happening. (Football, baseball, hockey...) 

With all of that already going on, many of you may not realize that the month of October happens to be National Seafood Month AND National Pizza Month too. You can celebrate both of those deliciously right here at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill in Osage Beach! 


Fantastic Flatbreads
Okay, technically our menu features flatbreads, but those are generally considered pizza. The crust and some of the toppings are a bit different, but basically, they are considered a similar dish. Flatbreads are made on a thinner, crispier crust with lighter sauce than most pizzas. 

Here at our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant & bar, we've gathered toppings and combined them in a way that is sure to tantalize your taste buds! Our oven-baked flatbreads include:

The Perfect "Football Foods" for Watching the Games

Image
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. 

WINGS
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. 

Buffalo - with spicy black pepper-dijon Buf…

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

Image
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…

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!)

Image
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 …
