Great Meal, Interesting History

We drove up from Kansas City after seeing a Groupon deal for this place, and the drive was worthwhile. The restaurant is in an historic area of Downtown St. Jo (as they call it), adjacent to a fabulous old movie house that appears to have been restored recently. The restaurant, according to a... read more

Bad Art Bistro has the best, freshest and most interesting food in St. Joseph! The service is very attentive and the New Infused Cocktails are GREAT! They are now featuring Live Music on most weekends and it is a Great Place To Go for a WONDERFUL EVENING in Historic Downtown St. Joseph!

What a great place to eat, the owner really takes pride in his cooking and it shows. We were there for lunch and the menu was limited but a fair selection considering this is in downtown st jo so not the busiest area during the day. I had the house special blt and it was definatly the best i ever... More

I am disappointed to report that what could have been a good dinner with friends ended up being a frustrating evening where I actually had to walk back into the kitchen in order to get the food for our table.... Let me start at the beginning: we arrived at our reservation time and were seated promptly and given water. Then... More

This will teach me. We last dined here a little over 2 years ago, and adored it so much we came back the next night. So we thought we'd make a trip and take advantage of their New Year's Eve special. We were not aware that the ownership and chef had changed. Bad mistake. I should have read the reviews... More

Located downtown, this restaurant offered a delicious eclectic menu and great service. Our waitress recommended a new wine which I thoroughly enjoyed and everyone in our party liked their meals. I recommend.

I found this place from other reviews on Urbanspoon. I was there on early for dining at first I was the only one there which was a bonus. I had an opportunity to meet the executive chef of the restaurant and get a bit of history as well as an explanation on how my meal was prepared. I suspect on... More

I am from Seattle and had a stop over in St Joe. Based on the last few reviews I almost did not dine there. I am glad I did. The new owner-chef Andrew Clark is changing the name to Exchange Kitchen. My wait person, Alyssa was in tune with good suggestions. I started with the Seafood Puff Pie which was... More

We used to love Bad Art Bistro. When it first came to town, it was a nice place to dine for special occasions and the food was incredible! Fast forward to the purchase by a new owner in May. There were 10 people in our party and not one person had a pleasant experience. Everything, from the salmon, to the... More
