Our #WickedGood Sandwiches and Wraps For Lunch or Dinner

A lot of people have certain expectations of the types of food they'll find at a sports grill at the Lake of the Ozarks, but one of the reasons that Wicked Willie's Sports Grill is the best in town is because we greatly exceed those expectations!

You'll find a lot more than just burgers and wings at our family restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. (We have those too, but they're much tastier than the versions thay you're used to!) Our menu is completely unique to the lake area and like nothing you've ever tasted before at a typical sports bar & grill. We always use fresh ingredients and do our best to put a bit of a gourmet twist on dishes that would make any foodie's mouth water! You'll even find some gluten-free options on our menu.
The diverse menu at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill features many different items, including amazing appetizers, oven-baked flatbreads, savory soups & salads, unbelievable burgers, and some out-of-this-world dinner …
