Lester's Restaurant



Some sports bars tend to be watering holes that serve food as an afterthought. Not so at Lester’s! Here it’s hard to say which is more appealing—the authentic, homemade dishes coming out of our chef’s show kitchen or the upscale ambiance of our massive sports bar. Feast your eyes on dozens of HD flat screens as you feast your tastebuds on our mind-blowing, gargantuan New York-style deli sandwiches or fall-off-the-bone tender baby back ribs (smoked four-and-a-half hours). Our dining room is perfect for lunch with the boss or dinner with your family. And Lester’s bar is the go-to spot for watching the big game, happy hour mingling or hanging out with friends.

Family Friendly

Lester’s casual and friendly dining room is the perfect place to enjoy a meal with the whole family. In fact, we made the Ladue News Best Family Restaurant Platinum List in both 2012 and 2013. Check out our Kid’s Menu.

If there’s a game on—even if it’s pay-per-view—chances are it’s on an HD screen at Lester’s. Thanks to our amazing video system, there’s a TV in your sightline from every seat in the house.

We Smoke Our Own Meats

There are no shortcuts in Lester’s kitchen. Everything is homemade, from the salad dressings to the sides. We even brine our own meats and applewood smoke our own barbecue delicacies. Our fall-off-the-bone tender baby back ribs are smoked for four-and-a-half hours, and our beef brisket, home-smoked daily, has enough melt-in-your-mouth goodness to make a Texan green with envy. And just wait’ll you try our pulled pork.
