Latawata Creek should be called lots and lots of food. When you eat at this busy joint you had better have a big appetite cause the amount of food you get is enormous. The chicken salad my wife got was big enough to feed two or three people. The service is good but you will probably have a long wait if you get there at meal time. We got there at 6:00 and had about a hour wait. But the food is worth the wait. Be prepared to have take home cause you won't be able to eat it all.

we were coming back from St Louis and friends recommened this place. I would have to say this is a GREAT place to eat. The rolls are unbelievable good and the portion of the food can be shared with 2 people. There is a $2 charge for sharing but well worth it. Pricing is a little on the high side, but if you share not to bad. Love our waiter he was great! The ice in our drinks were neat it was like it shaved ice. Sweet tea makes me think of South Caroina tea! We loved it, wished they had more of them in our area! Thanks for a great time!

This is our favorite restaurant in the St. Louis area. Lotawata is a place you visit when you are famished because they have huge portions. It doesn't matter because you'll still end up taking leftovers away. If you chose to split your entree with another guest, they charge a fee. It is better just to get the item and take home half. It is a popular place, so you'll have better luck avoiding a wait if you go early. We try to make it for lunch or an early dinner (around 4pm). They start you out with huge homemade rolls and cinnamon butter (or regular butter). They have an expansive menu. I have tried many things at Lotawata and I've never had something bad. They have a delicious homemade pot pie and the burgers are to die for. My husband gets the chili horseshoe or a burger. One time he tried the heart attack burger (deep fried burger). If you get fries as your side, you'll get a heaping portion of hand-cut fries that are deep fried to perfection. Check out Lotawata and you'll see why this is a local favorite.
