Great Food From A Tiny Old Tavern

ECCO Lounge has been around for a very long time. The bar part looks exactly the way it did the day it opened, which I think is unique, and they serve the coldest beer in the city! They also have a display case full of old Capitol Brewery breweriana. I think the restaurant seating area of this... read more

The steaks are fresh and hand-cut to order, nothing on the menu is pre-packaged except the pretzel sticks. It is NOT the cheapest steak in town, but not the most expensive either. Excellently cooked - and the Fried Mushrooms!!! Oh baby! You can make a dinner out of those. This is one of our go-to spots as locals and we... More

I have visited The Ecco Lounge on many occasions when in Jefferson City. It is the type of old fashioned lounge that is hard to find today.. The Ecco is nothing fancy, and I believe the establishment has been open and operated by different owners for at least 40-50 years. It serves wonderful cold bottles of beer and solid cocktails....

Ecco Lounge is known for hamburgers and rightly so! Good variety and BIG! Unless you are hungry, share! Priced $6.50-$8. There are also other menu items worth thinking about. French fries...Share! Great local atmosphere...the building was constructed in 1858. Brick walls...tin ceiling. Awesome! Small seating areas in bar area. I recommend checking this eatry out!

Good food at a good price. Usually able to get in and out in a decent amount of time. Some of the best hamburgers in town.

A coworker and I walked down here for lunch yesterday from a local recommendation. This was seriously good! I had the pastrami Reuben and it was actually freshly carved pastrami on wonderful marble rye. Though it was too large, I ate the whole thing. Will definitely return, maybe after work today so I can enjoy an adult beverage with my... 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.
