Casual Lunch Location with Good Food for Sports Fans

I was fortunate enough to be working in close proximity to this establishment. The portions were large and prices were reasonable given the wide variety of options. The restaurant also had numerous TV's which provided a good view regardless of where you were seated.

Great portions, excellent food and reasonable price. Good place for a casual business lunch during the week. We have run late getting out into the prime lunch time and never have had to wait for a table here. Service is quick even when restaurant is crowded. Good place for out of towner's if they like sports, baseball in particular. Check... More

This is the original location which used to be the flagship of the fleet, but has returned to being sole location of the bunch. I see reviews bashing them a little for being pricey, but people, please...this is a Ladue bar, not a local dive! The deli sandwich thing is why a lot of people come here, but I like... More

Went with a group of 8. It took 45 minutes from the time we order till it arrived. Only 3 tables will people sitting down eating. We all order corn beef or pastrami sandwiches. No way it should take this long. Once it arrived it was incredible. Best corn beef in town. Only problem is the massive wait. We went... More

Lester's is conveniently located off Clayton Rd. in Ladue. The bar is laid out perfectly & there are plenty of TV's! Service is always really great! The food is good - not great - but you are bound to find a St. Louis favorite on the menu! You will also find some REALY cool sports memorabilia - a collection of... More

There used to be three Lester's, but this is the last one still open. There was one by my house that we could walk to. It was always packed (at least during sporting events) so I don't know why it closed. The food was always wonderful; the service: not so much so maybe I answered my own query. The Lester's... More

I really do not see why the reviews are soo high here. The service was great but the food was just ehh. Our local Applebee's is better.

I think Lester got it right when he designed the physical layout and the menu for this sports bar. It is roomy and despite the crowd and theme, the noise level was fine and there is plenty of room between tables. They have great sandwiches, meat platters, salads and other bar food. The portions are large and the food is... More
