The Ground Round restaurant has moved from its long time home at the corner of the Belt Highway and Frederick Avenue to Downtown St. Joseph. The move took place earlier this month. They are now located at 6th and Edmond, the building formerly occupied by Em Chamas Brazilian Grill. The locally owned and operated family friendly bar and grill has been a hot spot for years. The hours and menu remain the same as well as providing free popcorn, weekly specials, happy hours and more.
In the beginning questions were brought to the table regarding City’s TIF money investments and MD Management (East Hills Mall), but after many discussions everyone agreed it was a great move. It allowed East Hills to the opportunity to capture additional revenue from the existing site and the Ground Round the ability to remain doing business in St. Joseph.
Driving by many times during the day, I would say the owners of Ground Round have to be pleased with their decision. The downtown location has been booming with business over the last couple of weeks giving downtowners a new spot to eat, as well as bring long time patrons of the Ground Round to the downtown area.
It has been said that Em Chamas will relocate to another property downtown, but at this time hasn’t been finalized or opened.
Be sure to check out the new location! Same food, familiar faces, great times in a remarkable building, in the heart of downtown St. Joseph, MO!
