Best Restaurant | Steakhouse | Joplin MO | Wilder'sThat has been the motto since 1929 and still holds true today!

Housed in a building erected in 1908, Wilder’s Steakhouse still showcases that craftsmanship in the ceiling and moldings. Wilder’s also features an art deco style bar, back bar and wooden-booths put into the restaurant in the early 40’s.

Once the location for all celebrations and even a little gambling, Wilder’s has been a buffet restaurant, a burger joint, and a breakfast place.

Local restaurateurs, Mike & Marsha Pawlus, purchased Wilder’s in 1996 and have made it into one of the premier destinations in the area.

Either celebrating a special occasion, holding a business event, or just an evening out for dinner and drinks this is the place to come for superior service and the finest selection of hand-cut steaks, fresh seafood and more.

Serving Monday to Thursday from 5:00 PM to 9:30 PM | Friday & Saturday from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM | Closed Sunday
