In early 2007 we began to develop our concept of creating a NEW type of neighborhood pub and grill for West County. ( I keep on saying "we" cause it makes Jon feel better but it was my idea... had to get that jab in there!) We wanted to create a neighborhood pub and grill to where you could enjoy a Soulard / Downtown Tavern feel in our shotgun bar, a comfortable cozy bite to eat on our dining side of the restaurant, a get together with friends and family in our private dining area, or one of the many great St. Louis nights in the beer garden and of course big LCD/LED t.v's in all those areas to watch your favorite sporting event. We wanted our burgers and chicken sandwiches to be the best on the block, our appetizers to be so big and delicious you would want it as a main course, our brick-oven pizza to be like no other pizza before. Well what we wanted was not another "cookie cutter" neighborhood pub and grill.
