My friend and I were the only patrons and we are baffled. The pizza was very good and the beer as well. The service was good, our order was served quickly and efficiently. How no other folks were there is a mystery

No food here, it's upstairs at buckners. If you want to have some drinks with friends in this casual bar it's great!

With a view of the mighty Mississippi River, Ragsdale’s is a Cape Girardeau original. Nestled in the old downtown district of Cape Girardeau, MO, Ragsdale’s has a long and proud tradition. In a building that is over a hundred years old and has survived floods and fire, Ragsdale’s has stood the test of time as the premiere bar in downtown Cape Girardeau.

Serving not only the best sampling of beers from Missouri, Ragsdale’s also serves the delicious beers brewed right upstairs in Buckner’s by Brewmaster Jack Owen. Currently having 4 on tap (The Old Man River Breakfast Stout, The Bees Sneeze Honey Wheat, The Ragsdale’s Pale Ale, and The Amber Hawk) we will soon have a total of 8 of our own beers on tap including Richard’s Best Cider, and rotating limited availability pilot brews. We also have a kitchen serving sandwiches, appetizers, and the best pizzas in town. The fun doesn’t stop there though, we have entertainment throughout the week, such as The Ragtag Comedy Open Mic Night on Wednesday, The Thursday Night Karaoke Dance Party, and live entertainment on Saturdays and we are also the new home of the UFC in Cape Girardeau featuring the events on all of our TV’s including our 120 inch screen!

So whether you want a nice meal, delicious craft beer from the oldest brewery in Cape Girardeau, MO, or to enjoy some great entertainment, Ragsdale’s is the place to be! We’ll see you there!
