Voted Best Restaurant in Missouri by Rural Missouri Magazine for six consecutive years, Catalpa is a small, fine-dining restaurant in a little red brick house in Arrow Rock, a village of 56 people on the Missouri River at the very beginning of the Santa Fe Trail. This is definitely not a "stuffy" place; we want you to feel free to laugh with us (or at us) when you come here.
Chef Liz can modify many dishes to be gluten-free and even offers visitors the opportunity to call ahead to discuss dietary needs.
We have only eight tables in the dining room and one Chef's Table in the kitchen. There is a screened porch and brick patio, which we utilize when weather permits. Our limited menu is eclectic changes regularly. We use local produce and meats whenever possible.
Cooking classes are offered by reservation, for groups of six to eight people. Private dinner parties for 10 or more and luncheons for 15 or more may be booked for any day the restaurant is normally closed.
Open Friday and Saturday evenings, February thru December, by reservation only.
NOTE: In addition to our regular hours, during the Lyceum Theatre season (June-August) we serve early supper after all matinees and before evening performances. Please visit our website or call for information.
