Built in 1779, the oldest "outdoor" market west of the Mississippi. Opened by Marie Soulard who saw a need for fresh produce and livestock to feed many growing immigrant families. Today, you can still buy a rabbit or a chicken - for a pet!

A good steak...the way a steakhouse should make a steak. No frills - just the basics. A big baked potato, salad, rolls and butter all for around $20. A local favorite.

A large version of the corner tavern brought to modern day. Great food at a great price; wide range of beers to choose from and several sports screens to root for you favorite team. Burgers, sandwiches, homemade potato chips, soups, salads and some traditional Irish fare (rarebit, stew, etc). One of my favorite spots for a sandwich and beer. The bartenders and wait staff are very friendly; Llywelyn's is locally owned; there are about five in St. Louis now. Everylocation has a friendly, congenial atmosphere - the kind of place where you feel like one of the family.

Delicious cajun inspired food and classic but classy bar scene; a favorite spot for the 30+ crowd and favorite among the locals. Try the Brussel Sprouts - so good they are an appetizer! Always good conversation and comradery at Molly's. Free shuttle to Blues Hockey and Cardinals Baseball games. Restaurant closed on Mondays but bar opens at 3:00 p.m. Epic Halloween party! Large patio and garden welcomes pets. Must be on a leash.
