Lunch Like a Local at the Paddlewheel Café
Nothing says “summer in St. Louis” more than the cool feeling of a riverfront breeze on a sunny day, surrounded by some of the best views of the Gateway Arch and the Mighty Mississippi River. Add to that some saucy toasted ravioli or a cold Schlafly beer from the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch’s Paddlewheel Café, and you’ve got yourself a perfect day on the riverfront!
As St. Louis’ only waterfront dining destination, the Paddlewheel Café is one of the city’s best-kept secrets. Its menu boasts delicious, made-to-order options such as the Smashed Double Burger, Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich and Fingerling Catfish, as well as a variety of salad options, and of course, a St. Louis staple, toasted ravioli. And let’s not forget about the drinks. You can also enjoy local St. Louis brews and cocktails at the dockside bar!
The Paddlewheel Café is open Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tableside service has been established on the dock to ensure café goers follow proper social distancing guidelines.
The Riverboats at the Gateway Arch are committed to being a safe and secure destination for employees and guests. You can view the riverboats’ health and safety protocols on our wesbite. We are excited for you to come down to the Riverboats to enjoy some summertime views of St. Louis at the Paddlewheel Cafe! See you soon.
