As Temperatures Get Colder, Warm Up at Wicked Willie's With Hot Comfort Foods

 Now that fall has arrived, there will still be warm days here and there but even on the sunniest of afternoons, it's just going to slowly keep getting colder outside. The best way to warm up is with something hot and delicious from our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant & bar!

We've got a menu full of comforting foods that can warm you up from the inside out at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill in Osage Beach. While you're here, you can also catch all the games on our 31 TVs and 3 giant projection screens. (If it's being broadcast, we'll have it on at our Lake of the Ozarks sports bar & grill!) 

Why is "Comfort Food" so Comforting?  

Foods often described as "comfort foods" are the type of cuisine that makes you feel good both inside and out. They comfort you with a physical warmth as well as mental happiness, often due to the nostalgic memories from your past associated with those foods. 

As for the hot, satisfying foods you'll find at Wicked Willie's, here are a few of our suggestions for soothing the chill of a cool fall day.  


Hot soup (or chili) puts a warm feeling in your belly that radiates throughout your entire body. You can order both of these either by the cup or by the bowl. 

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

Tomato Bisque
This savory tomato soup is served with a miniature grilled cheese. 


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

Cajun Chicken Fettuccine
Blackened, spiced, grilled chicken with roasted peppers, sundried tomatoes, and sauteed spinach in a spicy Cajun sauce. Substitute shrimp for a small additional charge. 

Southwest Shrimp Fettuccine
Large sauteed shrimp in a chipotle pesto with bell peppers, ham, and andouille sausage.


For most people, nothing's more nostalgic than a good burger with a side of fries. We're willing to bet everyone has had quite a few of those in their lifetime! (Maybe not as good as ours, but it's possible.) 

We've got 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. It doesn't have to be fries but our Sidewinder Fries are always a great choice!     

Classic Burger
Flame-grilled to perfection! Add-ons include; cheese (American, cheddar, pepper jack, or Swiss), mushrooms, caramelized onions, avocado, or bacon. 

Hawaiian Burger
Flame-grilled and topped with teriyaki, Swiss cheese, grilled pineapple, grilled red peppers lettuce, onion, and Hawaiian aioli. 

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

The Mac Daddy
A flame-broiled beef patty topped with bacon mac 'n' cheese. 

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

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


There's no denying the fact that there's just something special about deep-frying, well, just about any food! That warmth and crunch simply cannot be beaten. These dishes are prime examples of that!

Southwestern Chipotle Chicken Rangoon
Served with raspberry-chipotle dipping sauce.

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