Voted Best of the Bay Five Years Running

Eating in Bar

If you need more reason to stop in and visit The Wicked Wheel, their fried chicken has been voted Best of the Bay five years in a row. It's hand-battered and deep-fried in cottonseed oil. If chicken isn't your thing, you can try their thin-cut catfish, their half-pound Angus burgers, and a wide range of authentic Southern sides like cheese grits, rice, and collard greens.

Their prime rib also must be tried to be believed. They're dedicated to using the highest-quality fresh ingredients and real Angus beef, and they have a mission to provide home-cooked, homestyle meals that will stick to your ribs.

Some other menu highlights include:

  • Backfire Bay shrimp
  • Mexi-street corn nuggets
  • Sonoma chicken salad
  • Chicken pot pie
  • Key lime pie

The kids' menu offers staples like chicken tenders, corn dogs, and popcorn shrimp but also has Southern staples like catfish and fried chicken. The bar offers craft cocktails with a punch, such as Gasoline Tea and Wicked Punch.
