We were visiting Ft. Leonard Wood and were looking for something different and decided to try this place. It was well worth the 30 minute drive. The food, service, wine selection and cocktails were awesome!

Just A Taste definitely has a drink for everyone. They have the largest selection of wine and beers I've ever seen! The atmosphere is great, and the food is awesome as well! Great for a evening out with the husband/wife.
