Cozy Comfort Foods Beat That Cold Weather Chill

When the weather gets cold outside, it's natural to have cravings for comforting foods "just like Mom used to make" 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 which will automatically make you feel all warm and cozy inside. Here are a few dishes from our family-friendly restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks that fit nicely into the comfort food category. 

Hot soup (or chili) puts a warm feeling in your tummy that radiates throughout your entire body. Ours are served either by the cup or by the bowl. 

-Tomato Bisque
Served with miniature grilled cheese.

-Willie's Smoked Turkey Chili
Smoked turkey, white beans, tomatillos, and green chilies garnished with cilantro and tortilla chips. 

Thick, rich pasta always makes a body feel good. When you add a savory sauce like the kind our chefs are masters at creating, it's pure satisfaction!

-Cajun Chicken Fettucine 
Blackened spiced grilled chicken with roasted peppets, sundried tomatoes, and sauteed spinach in a spicy Cajun sauce. You may substitute shrimp for a small additional charge. (Served after 5 pm)

Nothing's more nostalgic than a good ol' burger with a side of French fries. We're willing to bet everyone has had quite a few of those in their lifetime. We offer 5 amazing burger creations for you to choose from, plus a tasty list of toppings if you'd like to create your own. 

All of our burgers are 7-oz patties served on a Brioche bun with your choice of a side dish. Our Sidewinder Fries are a great choice and we also offer Sweet Potato Fries. 

Flame-grilled to perfection.

-Willie's Burger
Flame-grilled with cheddar and bleu cheese and bacon-onion jam.

-The Logan Burger
Flame-broiled beef patty topped with deep bacon mac-n-cheese.

-The Wicked Burger
Flame-grilled ground chuck infused with caramelized onions, jalapeno, and chipotle sauce topped with caramelized onions, pepper jack cheese, guacamole, and chipotle mayonnaise. 

-Western Burger
Flame-grilled burger with BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, and crispy fried onion straws. 

Always a classic dish that almost no one can say no to! Our version of this enjoyable menu item is served flatbread-style. 

-BBQ Chicken Flatbread
BBQ sauce and seasoned chicken topped with bacon, red onions, cheddar jack cheese, and fresh cilantro.

-Exotic Mushroom Flatbread
Roasted exotic mushroom blend, fresh herbs, parmesan cheese, and goat cheese.

-Margherita Flatbread
Fresh basil, mozzarella, tomato, roasted garlic olive oil, and balsamic syrup. 

There's no denying it, even though fried foods may not be the healthiest choice compared to grilled items, the flavor they possess is automatic happiness! The warmth and that crunch simply can't be beat. 

-Corn Dog Battered Crabcakes
Served with spicy jalapeno mustard.

-Pork Tenderloin
Hand-breaded in parmesan and breadcrumbs served on a Brioche bun with herb mayo, lettuce, and tomato.
