Apparently it was established in the late 1830s as a tavern, and a series of hotels, taverns, and restaurants have occupied the site since; the latest incarnation being started in 1945. In all the...

It is worth a visit to see the fully restored early 1900s-style bar. Not to mention the vintage bar signs and lights. The food is fast and hot. Every day you will find new creative selections besides the regular menu. There are always some special beers on tap. They are happy to let you sample a beer before ordering. They... More

Maybe one of the better restaurants in Jefferson City. It's pretty common, but wonderful food. The hamburger consistently wins awards as the best in the city. Service is exceptional and the menu has good variety.

Ecco is one of the favorite gathering places in Jeff City. It has been around a long time. The food is great, and they accommodate large groups.

Charming, historic building + great staff + unique twist on favorite pub foods = The ECCO. Order anything, you can't go wrong. My favorite is the ECCO club which is loaded with flavors and has thinly sliced apples. Pair it with the best fries you'll taste, and that is a meal! You will not go away hungry.

I had dinner here with the board for an organization that I am the treasurer for. We had 7 people and enough room for us. Food is always good. I had the portabella mushroom sandwich and it was good. It is more of a bar setting, but everyone could hear what needed to be discussed.
