Great atmosphere and great food

For some reason I hadn't been here since the mid-1980's. I'm glad I finally went back for lunch with a friend. The food was great and it was such a nice and quiet atmosphere where we could visit easily. I definitely won't wait 30 years to go again!

We ate here with about 15 colleagues for lunch. The service was excellent, great food and the portions were really ample. Most had to-go bags.

This is probably my favorite happy hour hang out that includes incredible live entertainment, great food, and beverages. One of the best bar tenders in the area. There is a happy hour menu that is good to 7pm plus full menu until closing. I have been coming here for lunch, dinner, and happy hour for more years than I care... More

EBT is a romantic restaurant tucked away in a nondescript bank building next to a major freeway, but WOW what a great place it is with equally great food. The name comes from the abbreviation of an old department building, Emery Bird Thayer, opened in 1890 in downtown Kansas City. The building was closed in 1968. The restaurant currently houses...

My wife and I enjoyed great food, wine and entertainment at EBT's this past weekend. Roz (and Nathan) performed and made the evening very special. Mr. Royce, the restaurant manager, introduced us to a great wine and the pairings were perfect.

I have dined here several times. The atmosphere and friendly staff are the best parts of this restaurant. My most recent meal was not as good as previous ones. The baked potato was dry and the green beans a bit bland. The steak was tender and flavorful. The osso bucco was tender but not so flavorful. I have had the... More

Unfortunately at State Line Rd and 435, and signage is an issue. The people who go there know the place and return again and again and bring new friends. It is easy to miss on the South-East side of 435. Food is uniformly good BUT in candor had a bad meal once mid week when ?? was running the kitchen,... More

EBT is simply one of the best restaurants in Kansas City, with no qualifications necessary. It achieves its preeminence with nary a nod toward culinary fashion or glance at what they are doing on the coasts. If everything old is new again, then EBT deserves a fresh wave of admiration for daring to remain steadfastly focused on serving outstanding food... More
