In 2013 Hollywood came to my neck of the woods. Crews were in Cape Girardeau, Missouri (where I went to college) and southern Illinois (where I live now) to film Gone Girl. Stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry made headlines in the local news. They slept in our hotels, ate in our restaurants and worked out in our gyms. It was an exciting time.

The restaurant is pretty small on the inside. I didn't count the tables, but I could see there be long waits during prime eating times. We were there at three o'clock on a Sunday so we were seated immediately. The size of the bar side seemed in line with most other places I've been to. No crowds on a Sunday afternoon, but I'm sure that's different on a Friday night.
Like the movie Gone Girl, I give The Bar two thumbs up. The food is good. Portion sizes are plentiful. The service during our visit was a little slow, but we took that time to enjoy the ambience and talk. The price is right too (the three of us ate for less than $40). If you find yourself in downtown Cape Girardeau (the real life Carthage) head to The Bar for a meal and a drink.
