Last night we celebrated my daughter's birthday at the Justus Drugstore. The restaurant comes very highly rated, both by Zagat, Wine Spectator, and our friends. Unfortunately, we were somewhat disappointed. Not by the marvelous drinks, not by the great wait staff, or the incredible wine...More

Went for a very special anniversary dinner. This place used to be our favorite. We were disappointed to see that the entire place needed a good cleaning. Dirty. They had installed wood crates (like the thin light wood ones you see at hobby lobby) to...More

Justus was the perfect venue to celebrate our Dad's 80th birthday. A table for 9, Rodman, Laura and the staff of Justus delivered an amazing evening. The venue is quaint and comfortable with a nice size bar and open kitchen. The cuisine is a mixture...More

This is a very unique restaurant with high quality food. It's a fairly small venue with indoor and outdoor seating. We dined inside, where the dress was above business casual. The dining outside seemed to be a little more relaxed. The meal itself was fine....More

We came here for dinner and ate on the bar side, since that side was open earlier. They have an open prep kitchen, and then a second kitchen that is in a separate area. It was interesting to watch the cooks work. We shared some...More

Unique is the word that comes to mind. And, maybe, mysterious. Why would a chef of this caliber would be making food of this quality in the little town of Smithville, where most of Kansas City will never go? My wife and I ended up...More
