Do I need to make a reservation if I have a large group, and if so, who do I contact?

  • While we are not currently accepting reservations with today’s current state, we are appreciative of letting us know if a group is larger than 20 people so that we can gauge the best way to accommodate your group. Please call us at 636-797-8686.
  • We HIGHLY encourage you to bring bag chairs (tables, picnic blankets, etc.) for the “just in case.” This will ensure you group has proper seating and lets you properly socially distance yourself.
