Riverfront Times' Description

The lovely Terrace View restaurant in the northeast corner of fun, funky Citygarden sculpture park has been revamped as a...chili parlor. Not that there’s anything wrong with chili — or the restaurant’s straightforward menu of hamburgers, hot dogs and sandwiches — in theory. But if you’re going to serve chili in one of downtown’s crown jewels, it had better be a helluva chili, which this isn’t. The chicken chili (more of a chicken and white bean stew) fares better, and the hot dogs (all-beef Nathan’s) are solid.

Tips from foursquare

  • Go! Magazine on 08/23/12

    The Downtown Dog was our favorite, doing a reasonable imitation of a Chicago dog by including onions, pickled hot peppers, a pickle, tomato, celery salt and relish. (Joe Bonwich)

    The Mac n cheese is amazo! Very creamy, and with Parmesan breadcrumbs!

    Voted Best Outdoor Drinking in RFT's Best of STL 2013. There are martini Mondays, $3 margarita Wednesdays and $3 mimosas on weekends. http://bit.ly/1agIpqF

    Great for a quick stop for a cold drink. Skip the chili mac. Too pricey for chili right out of a can.

  • Maria U. on 07/29/13

    The chicken salad is way too wet and the coleslaw is vinegar and mustard based.
