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…

How Do You Like Your Wings - Bone-In or Boneless?

Monday, July 29 is National Chicken Wing Day across the country. Here at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill, you'll find the best wings at the Lake of the Ozarks on our menu. Around here we prefer bone-in wings, but there are those that enjoy a good boneless wing instead. We've listed a few pros and cons of each below. (But we're still not changing our minds!)  

Bone-In Wings
ProsMore Flavor: The bone, skin, & cartilage add extra flavor to the meat while it cooks. (That may not "sound" appetizing, but it tastes great!)It's a Classic: Come on, when someone says chicken wing, this is what you automatically imagine. Irresistible: As you'll soon see, most of our "cons" below have a "pro" twist to them and that's because it's hard to find fault with the bone-in wings we love! (Once you taste ours, you'll totally agree!)ConsMessy: Biting the meat off the bone does cause the sauce and juices to get on your hands and often run down…

#WickedGood Appetizers to Enjoy During the Game

A big draw to any sports bar, after tons of TVs & access to all the games, of course, is the type of food served. Favorites to eath while watching a game tend to revolve around items that are often found on an appetizer menu, such as nachos, wings, and potato skins.  

Our sports bar & grill at the Lake of the Ozarks offers all of those plus a whole lot more. These aren't just your average appetizers though. The talented chefs at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill in Osage Beach use fresh ingredients, unique recipes, and delicious attention to detail to create a gourmet experience unlike any other in the area! Here's a peek at the mouthwatering menu items from our extensive list of appetizers. 

First up, a sports bar favorite, hot wings! In this case, fresh, jumbo chicken wings with your choice of 4 savory sauces to have them tossed in. Be sure to ask your server for bleu cheese or ranch and celery sticks.
