Description: Wilder's Steakhouse is part of Joplin's past and future. As the third owners of the restaurant we find our selves stewards of a historical piece of the Joplin landscape. Originally opened in 1929 by Mr. Verne Wilder it grew to encompass the 1200 block of main street with banquet facilities, bar, package sales, dining room and featured speak easy functions upstairs. We wish these walls could talk - we have had some really great stories shared by guests of the restaurant. We purchased Wilder's in 1996 and are proud to have uncovered some of the original beauty of the 1908 building we dwell in. As a fine dining restaurant in Joplin we strive to give all of our guests a wonderful dining experience and uphold ourselves to very high standards. Please come in and join us for our hormone and antibiotic free Black Angus Beef or some wonderful Wild Caught Seafood. We are always accepting reservations. See you soon.

Wilder's has been in Joplin since long before I was born & I am 62! It has rooms for meetings besides regular dining. We were here for volunteer's meeting so again, I am not sure of the cost. I do think it might be in line with other steak house though. The food was excellent and encluded dessert. The service was right on! The meeting room was beautifully decorated for our Christmas meeting. The room was cozy and private so we could hear well. We definately enjoyed Wilder's.

We have been here several times - as couple and family get-togethers. We have never been dissapointed. I always get the filet and it is always great quality and cooked just right.
Looks are decieving from the outside. The area is ??, but the inside is warm and very well kept and has neat old furnishings.
It is definetly fine dining at its best.
We look forward to our next visit.

This historic restaurant oozes history and atmosphere. The food is excellent, albeit a little pricey for this area of the country.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel and we were not disappointed. The steak was juicy, tender, and well presented, it is an a la carte restaurant but we did not mind paying extra for the great food and outstanding service. Must go there when your in Joplin, MO.

Nice sized steak house and has lots of opportunity to be really good but the food and drinks are way over-priced! Waitstaff are fairly good but again the food is only tolerable! Would not recommend.
