Fantastic food. Started with coconut chicken strips..very delicious. I got the Monday lunch special which was chicken breast, shrimp skewer, dinner salad, and some really good toast. Wife got the 6oz sirloin lunch and it was cooked to perfection and had a flavor to go with it. Finished with Kentucky bourbon pecan pie and caramel fudge pecan cake. You just have to get off the beaten path and search it out. Very worth it.

Breakfast, Brunch & Lunch Open Wed - Fri 8:30am - 2pm and Sat - Sun 9am - 1:00pm Big flavor for such a small restaurant
We had heard so much about The Bruncheonette and finally got to sample the "Bennies" here. The eggs Benedict that is. I had the Henry and have to say it just melted in my mouth. The generous portion was more than enough to be filling. Everything looked so good, and the staff was so friendly, I can't wait to go back again.

Neat little place! Fun vibe. Yummy food! I had the bacon wrapped hotdog with pineapple, teriyaki sauce, and scallions. So tasty! The brauwerst topped with Reuben was divine as well! Loved the fried pickles slices. Thin, slightly sweet homemade pickles battered in a way that reminded me of fried green tomatoes. Truly unique!

A Greek themed restaurant with limited Greek selection and unimpressive dishes. It was considered fine dining years ago, however, it's become a T-shirt and jeans environment. With a high dollar menu this has become a huge disappointment to us.
We have had to wait 15-45 minutes for a table but were able to order drinks from the bar while we waited. The staff has always been wonderful and the building and decor is nice. We will probably go again since it is one of the few fine dining restaurants in Joplin. I just wish they served authentic food.

You can't go wrong with Cheddar's! Fresh food, low prices and a big menu with helpful servers!
We especially like the Sweet heat chicken and shrimp with < 50o calories and tons of flavor! I love the chicken tenders with white gravy in addition to the honey mustard for dipping. Our friend ordered the white fish and was overwhelmed by the size and tast!!
And drinks for $2.39 - what a deal!!

Smoked barbecue, brisket, pulled pork and ribs being most popular. They also have a large variety of homemade pies that are served as huge slices. very rustic decor and friendly service.
The food quality is generally pretty consistent - good, flavorful, with a homemademade feel. The service can sometimes be a little lacking, and if you order something to go, expect it to take at least 15 mins longer than they told you it would take, and for a few things to be missing. Definitely a much better place to eat on site than to go.

I have come here for years when working in Joplin. It never ever disappoints! Thai family run restaurant, and I have no problem letting the chef (the wife) choose what I should have because by now I know that whatever she cooks will be great! Just make sure you don’t order it spicy, be careful!

This is a great place to sit down with friends and have a beer, watch a game or just eat wings. They have expanded the place from previous and updated everything, so it's really nice. LOTS of TVs around so you can catch whichever game you're wanting. As always, wings are AWESOME!! Great beer on tap and great wait staff.

Wilder's Steakhouse is part of Joplin's past and future. As the third owners of the restaurant we find our selves stewards of a historical piece of the Joplin landscape. Originally opened in 1929 by Mr. Verne Wilder it grew to encompass the 1200 block of main street with banquet facilities, bar, package sales, dining room and featured speak easy functions upstairs. We wish these walls could talk - we have had some really great stories shared by guests of the restaurant. We purchased Wilder's in 1996 and are proud to have uncovered some of the original beauty of the 1908 building we dwell in. As a fine dining restaurant in Joplin we strive to give all of our guests a wonderful dining experience and uphold ourselves to very high standards. Please come in and join us for our hormone and antibiotic free Black Angus Beef or some wonderful Wild Caught Seafood. We are always accepting reservations. See you soon.
Went here with spouse and another couple for dinner. Two of us had steaks and two of us had scallops and shrimp. Everything was well prepared and tasty, especially the twice baked potato, but the tab for dinner with only water and iced tea to drink was $150.00. Each entree came with only one side. Like I said, it was good, but be prepared to dig deep.
