A hidden gem

This restaurant is up a staircase and not downtown but has been around for a long time. I can't believe I just found out about it a few years ago. Great salads, onion rings, sandwiches. Good service. Feels like you are in a combination lounge/diner. Fun place to eat. You never know who you... read more

Lunch meeting with a co-worker the food was very good at a fair price, I had the pork tenderloin sandwich but I must say the service was slow even though the restaurant was not that busy at the time.

Each time I am at Ecco, my order is always the same: a Blue Moon beer, onion rings (to share, because they are HUGE), and an Ecco burger (which is a bleu cheese-topped patty). It never disappoints.

The food and service is top notch for the Bar/Restaurant type establishment. Recent renovations have taken what used to be a dirty little bar and turned it into a very pleasant experience with delicious food and a neat history.

Service was amazing and the food was probably the best of Jeff City. Order a burger, its omen of their best items.

When you arive at the ECCO, you'll feel the strong urge to turn around and leave. When my friend first saw it, he said he wasn't eating at "this dump". On the way out (I didn't take no for an answer), he said it was an "interesting" experince. It is a little dumpy but the food's above average and everybody... More

We went to the Ecco Lounge based on the trip advisor. It was a very neat and interesting place. You could really feel the history of the place. There was a lot to see and experience and we were there a long time. Our waitress was not friendly and in fact was almost rude. The bus "boys" were great. They... More

The ECCO has been a Jefferson City mainstay for decades. It's the best that it's ever been with great wait staff, ask for Janet or Berbie, and a fabulous owner, Sally. They make you feel at home and always a great meal! Great beer selection as well.

Since JC has gone completely smoke free, this iconic pub is the place to be. It used to be too smoke filled. Think Cheers when Norm enters the bar. Great bar food, friendly staff, and who knows who you will run into as it is a favorite stop for those working or visiting the Capitol City.

We love going to Ecco, and stop here at least once a week. Service is always wonderful and Janet and Berbie will make you feel at home. I love the tenderloin and Ecco club but my wife loves the prime rib. Everything we have tried has been excellent and we suggest giving it a try.
