Awesome Onion Rings!

Small place. Not really conducive for large groups. They have one large curved table in the front corner for six people. It's near the front door so you freeze when the door opens and closes in the winter. We didn't take our coats off. But my beer was cold and the burger was delicious. Huge... read more

Awesome food and a surprisingly comfort food menu make this a long time eatery favorite in Jefferson City. Anything on the menu is recommended and the brick walls and old time bar make the eating even better. Entertainment is provided by the mix of locals who call this place home. People watching and eating in an old style building is... More

Excellent burgers and prime rib salad. Definitely, worth the visit, recommended as a place to eat at. Great history, read the bottom of the menu for more information, but this is the oldest restaurant in this area.

Enjoyed the service and food. I had a burger and it was delicious with fries. It appears to be a local favorite for lunch so pack patience.

Was in Jefferson City Dec. 4-7. Ordered take out from Ecco; prime rib sandwich was fantastic, as were the wings. Walked over there the next day for a few drinks and food. Ordered onion rings. I had read on a previous review that a portion was enough for 3-4 people and they allowed 1/2 orders. Got 1/2 order and good... More

A great place to have bar food that is not your traditional bar food. The bar has been open since before prohibition and was recently remodeled. The food is great and the bar typically will have about 1/2 dozen smaller brew beers.

While visiting Jeff City we asked for a place with local color to have lunch in the downtown area and the ECCO Lounge did not disappoint. Its a long narrow bar with a tin ceiling and great memorabilia on the walls and bar. The waitress was fun and sassy. The menu had a wide variety of interesting , better than... More

An OK place a bit out of the way from downtown, but the food is fine. The place is pretty small but we all thought it was a neat little place to grab a light dinner. It was pretty busy when we were there on a Friday night.

We ate dinner at Ecco, and will definitely be back. The onion rings were huge! And the best part - they were done perfectly, not greasy. Definitely enough for at least 4 people. The waitress said you can order a half size, which we will keep in mind for next time. Good variety on the menu - salads, sandwiches, burgers,... More

The atmosphere is typical bar unless you sit in the non-bar section, then it is old, stuffy and not the cleanest. The food is okay, it depends on what you get. The German potatoes are great, the onion rings HUGE, the other appetizers appear to be the run of the mill frozen food. Burgers are good and there is a... More
