Good News from Michael & Kathy

The last few days have been nothing short of a whirlwind.

Announcing the end of the BoodaLu was as much of a heartbreak to many of you as it was to us. We have been overwhelmed by thoughtful messages and positive comments from people who not only enjoyed having a weekly dinner with us (sometimes more than weekly), but who also made lasting memories – engagements, birthdays, reunions with old friends, earth-shattering conversations … so many of you expressed how much you wished the party would not end.

Well … it may not have to.

That’s right. As I write this, right now, a deal is being worked out that could potentially keep the BoodaLu going. Same name, same place, same outstanding service, and (most importantly) the same exceptional staff.

The details are still being inked, and that ink is still wet, but it’s close enough to being done that a little teaser-announcement is in order. I don't know about you, but I like this announcement a whole lot better than the last one.

Here's a little more good news: Keep your gift cards! They’ll still be valid at their full value when our doors are unlocked and reopened.

We are so excited about the lasting legacy of BoodaLu and can’t wait to share more news as it comes.

Hang in there and stay safe.


BoodaLu Steakhouse - Restaurant & Event Space perfect for Rehearsal Dinners & Birthday Parties.

Outdoor seating

Boodalu patio seating overlooks the great Mississippi, Clat Adams Park,  and the Quincy Bridge - a wonderful part of our restaurant.

Muddy Dog Lounge 
Main dining room

After some much needed structural restoration, this 1870s era building became a cozy, but elegant restaurant. 

This large and beautiful event space, located above the main dining room, is available for rent for birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, and special occasions. This is also the location of our "Pop up" dinner events.

Full bar

From classic martini to something on the rocks​, our restaurant bar is equipped with your "usual" or one of our expert bartenders can create something new and exciting.
