World Sports Grille was a sports-themed restaurant opened by Sega Entertainment USA in spring 2008. The location was previously GameWorks Studio Tuscon,[1] and before that Stage 35.[2] Roughly two-thirds of the venue was dedicated to dining, while the remaining third continued to operate as a GameWorks-branded arcade.

World Sports Grille was included in Sega's 2011 sale of the remaining GameWorks facilities. Having received mixed reviews from food critics, the venue closed in March 2013.[3] Sega had originally planned to open more World Sports Grilles across the US, though these never materialized.

This was not the first time Sega had attempted to enter the catering business - the concept dates back to at least 1980 with the opening of P.J. Pizzazz.
