“Awesome food....questionable help”
Reviewed 20 October 2009

Took a large group of 20 here for lunch. Great size portions for lunch...delicious food! Try the Dill Pickle Potato Soup - I guarantee you will be craving it from now on! Everyone was very pleased with thier meals, and loved that sandwiches and such come with a salad on the side vs. fries. Pretty healthy menu, tons of vegitarian options. The only downside was the help. It wasn't that they were slow, I get with a group of 20 that service isn't going to be speedy - it was more the attitude. Waiter actually got snippy with one of the guests who asked to have her side salad before the meal, telling her she had to wait. I thought this was kinda ridiculous! He in general just did not pay attention to half the table, but stood chatting with the other half. This will not keep me from going back, but I will be prepared for less than great customer service.

“Fun Dining Retro Style”
Reviewed 13 November 2008

What a fun place to be. Located in downtown St. Louis this new restaurant is sure to be a big hit. The minute you walk in the door the atmosphere of the roaring 20's comes alive. Jazzy music of earlier days plays in the background setting the carefree mood. The high ceiling and walls are hand painted in deco art style. The soda fountain bar and stools are quaint and inviting. Our group of 25 was treated well by the personable staff. The menu is most interesting and diverse from its dill pickle soup to its ice cream martinis. This is not a place to skip dessert, so save room for it. I had the Zanzibar chocolate sundae with the best ever raspberry topping and fresh whipped cream. The burlesque show held once a month is an enticing attraction that will bring many of us back to this establishment as well as the good food, good service, and fun atmosphere.
