The pool hall is one of those quaint little places in downtown Platte City. The staff is very friendly. On Friday evening's they have specials on tacos, which are very good. Every other day they have the best cheeseburgers you will find around.

The Pool Hall is actually the only place in Platte City I'd call a bar. When you first walk in, you might feel out of place. It is definitely a locals bar and you'll know you're not a regular. But you're not unwelcome. Pull up a seat at the bar or one of the high tops and ask for a... More

What a great place! Burgers aren't pre-shaped and frozen before cooking. Great seasonal special burgers and periodic live music. Not at all like the bar Cheers but you certainly feel like you're among friends when you eat here.

This is a good place to eat. The burgers are good, the tenderloin is house made, and very tasty. Friday night is taco nite, also good. If you can get past the fact that smoking is still allowed here, it is a good place to eat. If smoking was prohibited I would have given 5 stars...

here you will find it. Old saloon style decor, locals galore, smoking still possible, not a healthy food item in sight. Beer is cheap and cheerful goes well with their fried food. A great place for some downtime, don't dress up.

This is kinda a Cheers sort of place, where everybody knows everyone else and it's a REAL good time! Good specials/cold beer. But the burgers are the best!! Just order a double Cardiac with cheese and grilled onions. You will not be dissapointed. As for the following questions: sort of visit?: Family, friends, solo.... When were you here?: As often...

Met some great people here while in town for a shut down. Enjoyed the burgers and the atmosphere. Kind of like Cheers. Everybody knows your name there. Just a friendly down home place to relax and unwind. Will return!

This is classic Americana! It is call a pool hall, because that is exactly what it is! You can drink beer, smoke cigarettes, and play pool. For me the best part are the cheeseburgers! They are exactly what you expect, big and greasy! It is definitely a 'joint' and I would highly recommend as a motorcycle destination. I
