The Loading Dock

Once the area's best kept secret, the Loading Dock has become known as a top St. Louis destination.  We're proud to be considered the region's best outdoor bar and grill, with the best scenic view, at the end of the best scenic drive.  Our majestic view is not to be missed.  Watch the river roll by while listening to live entertainment.  Our full menu features something for everyone...don't miss our famous Dock Salsa!  Be sure to stop by the fourth weekend of the month March - October for the Riverside Flea Market featuring over 60 local vendors.  Let us host your next party!  We cater events of all sizes...from reunions and receptions to birthdays and bridal showers.  Keep the fun going at one of our four Loading Dock Guest Houses, perfect for an intimate getaway or an all night get-together.
