We had a great dinner here while visiting friends Joplin. We had the tortellini pasta with pesto sauce that was delicious along with a great salad, potato soup, and yummy garlic bread. They had so many wonderful dishes that we want to go back. We are used to boutique American cuisine restaurants in California but never expected to find one... More

We went to dinner early and when we arrived there were only a half a dozen other parties in the dining room. We were promptly seated next to the kitchen and as we found out, evidently in close proximity to the dishwasher. This might be less noticeable with a full dining room and increased noise level but not so great... More

I was referred here by a local friend and he even gave me a gift certificate. Lunch for two was $20. It was very busy and seating was limited. They gave me the wrong side dish, but I didn't say anything. A few minutes later they brought my side and apologized and I had never said anything. That was nice... More

Love everything they have! Especially their potato soup! Also, like their second location on 32nd St. The Red Onion Express!

Very good service, huge portions, decent prices, good selection of beers. The place was crowded, so we had to wait to be seated.

I do not travel to a downtown restaurant, but this one was highly recommended by a stranger I met at a garage sale in Oklahoma. Since I have a granddaughter attending college in Joplin I wrote the name in my notes. I could hardly wait to go to Joplin for a visit plus try out the food that was highly... More

Went here for lunch and my party if three each had something different. Everything was very tasty and the prices were reasonable. Will definitely return when back in Joplin.

Pasta is delicious! Loved the Potato soup too! The dessert was ok. We had the Carmel pecan fudge cake & key lime cheese cake both were just ok. Our waitress was ok but could have checked back more. We needed refills & waited a while on our check. We would go back again but skip dessert.

My husband and I meet for lunch. A little wait but sooooo worth it. Jake was our server and was perfect. I ordered something that they no longer had on the menu but they made it anyway. Jalapeño Tilapia....it was amazing!!! Serving sizes are perfect. Salad dressing was on the side without asking. The house dressing is a sweet vinaigrette... More
