This is the place I would never go back. First, the service. The place was not too busy and yet we ended up waiting 20 minutes for our food. My husband tiny burger was not well done, as requested. We asked the waiter to cook...More

Me and Misses Joe stopped by the Spoonriver for drinks and appetizers. A wonderful location next to the Guthrie Theater makes this a prime drinking DNR dining spot. The menu is limited, I thought the appetizers could be more expanded to appeal to those who...More
