Drinks are cold and food is very good and inexpensive. I wish their menu was a little more varied, but what they do, they do well. No kids, no carry outs... very casual atmosphere. Everyone will feel welcome from 21 year olds celebrating their birthday to 80+ year olds doing the same.

Never had any bad food at Fast Eddie's; food has been excellent! Note: CASH only, no credit cards accepted. Eardrums have suffered though!

Food is delicious, atmosphere is fun, just a great place to go and relax. The waitresses are very good at noticing your glass or bottle is empty.

The food is inexpensive and good. The staff is friendly . The atmosphere is inviting and fun. There is almost a band playing. This is a traditional birthday stop for my family. Some days we just decide take a ride and go hang out at Fast Eddies.

Really had a good time at Fast Eddie's while on a Great River Scenic road trip. Burgers, as everyone says, are tasty. French fries are really good. Drink prices are not out of the ordinary for what we are used to. Bartenders and servers are cheerful and helpful, without being pushy towards newbies to Fast Eddie's. We checked the music... More

You must try this place. This is a well oiled bar and grill. Do not be overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle. The food line will look long and never ending, but it moves fast. Food wait is not a long a you would think. Shrimp is great. Love the kabobs and hamburgers. You do need to purchase a drink,... More

Alot of fun and great atmosphere here at Fast Eddies. Food was cheap and the burgers were damn good. We also had the shrimp and tried the wings on a stick. Only catch was there was drink purchase required and the drink prices were a bit high...I'm sure to offset the lower food prices. they know how to keep you... More

We went there a few days ago. Just mediocre food. Yes hamburgers are only $1.99 (used to be $.99). The shrimp are now $.39. Had burgers, shrimp, fries, and beers. All of the food was incredibly salty! I assume this is so that you will consume more beer! Even their homemade bratwurst worst was salty! Our waitress was terrific. Can't... More

A long time venue in the area. Popular with the Missouri crowd, and people sightseeing the river road and riverbend area. Ages range from 21-90. Many 21 yr. olds go there and get a free T-shirt for their birthday. Good times had by all. Very crowded Thursdays-Sundays, as they have live bands. Band play out under the 'canopy' and is... More

This bar is in my hometown. For the newly initiated, may seem a bit hectic and crazy crowd, but this is America at her finest. Drink some Budweiser, chow on the cheap and awesome food, and be sure to tip your hardworking waitress. If you can be here for a Cardinals game or when the bands fire up, so much... More
