Set in Kansas City’s historic City Market, Brown and Loe Restaurant’s inviting atmosphere is a blend of “big city” bistro with the welcoming casual flavor of a neighborhood favorite. Housed in a former Merchant’s Bank constructed in 1920, the restaurant honors the architectural details of the two-story building which features a façade of plate glass and verde marble floors and walls.
In the 1940’s, Brown and Loe was originally a produce broker with offices on the second floor of the Merchant’s Bank building. The new Brown and Loe Restaurant celebrates the techniques of curing, pickling and smoking meats, beautifully interpreted into marvelous American comfort cuisine. This is a true local venue, evidenced by the restaurant’s allegiance to the resident farmers and food artisans who supply most of the restaurant’s fresh ingredients.
Brown and Loe Restaurant is the second dining concept introduced by Harry Murphy, owner of the City Market’s popular Harry’s Country Club.

    Such a great place! Tasha was a great server and the deviled eggs are insanely good! Although my sandwich wasn’t my fave, the restaurant is an absolute gem! We will definitely be back for happy hour and more dining experiences here!

    Brown and Loe is one of my regular favorites. Try the meatloaf for dinner and the Chicken and Waffles for Brunch. The service is always awesome. Love the ambience and the entire experience.

    After stopping by for a lunch meeting on a Thursday, I immediately booked a dinner for Friday. This is an amazing place with great food, hearty portions and the most amazing wait staff on the planet. This is our new favorite place for lunch and dinner.

    I've been here several times before, always very satisfied by the meal and experience. This time was disappointing. While the server and ambiance were both good, my dinner was not. The Caesar salad was just OK. The Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich was a huge disappointment! I've had it before and really enjoyed it. Hoping this was just a fluke and next time will be back to a good dinner experience. On a positive note, the fries were really good!

    Service was good but the food was sub par. The quiche was very dry and not very flavorful. Same for my boyfriend’s burger.

    Super cute place--upscale but not stuffy at all. The drinks were great, as was the food. We all had different things and love them all (oyster, deviled eggs, meatloaf, ribeye, shrimp/noodles, pork chop!). Would definitely go back !

    Our first time at Brown & Loe for brunch was a delight. The food was amazing - especially the Loco Moco and the sorbet. When we first arrived the restaurant was full and the noise level was high, but that relaxed as a couple of tables emptied. Brown & Loe is one of our favorite restaurants in KC - consistently amazing food and quality service.

    Brown and Loe is one of the best kept restaurant secrets in KC and the Rivermarket. Their dinner menu is wonderful. Try the meatloaf! Their brunch menu is also great. Try the Chx and Waffles. For a light lunch try the Argula salad with Chicken or Salmon. I hope you enjoy!

    One of our favorite spots. Get the hummus. The fried chicken is the best around hands down, whether it alone or on a sandwich. Great spot for a casual bite or a nice date depending on how your feeling!

    Great drinks - bingo cocktail & pumpkin spice warmer (coffee drink). , amazing halloumi appetizer with Naan with very flavorful agave coulis. Goat cheese mashed potatoes bursting with flavor under juicy meatloaf. Special includes large bay scallops with diced prosciutto linguine sun-dried tomatoes and Parmesan. Though I thought this had just a bit too much salt, I am not a salt lover so maybe good for others, and I still loved this dish. Cozy, cool vibe. Love this place. Been too long since we’ve been, hope to return soon.

    Our expectation was for brunch, because Open Table site for the restaurant offered in “full menu” only “brunch” and dinner menus. That was no large problem, except that I was primed for their excellent brunch menu. As with previous experience, we found both the cuisine and the service excellent. Our server was superior: prompt, courteous, helpful and pleasant, visiting our table frequently enough to never find us wanting. Couldn’t ask for more. Meatloaf and day’s special were tasty. The spaghetti squash entree was especially appreciated and praised by the two vegetarians in our party. Brown and Loe continues to be an exceptional place to dine.

    I ate there last night and am already looking forward to going back. This is the first time in months when I've been glad to have spent my money and time at a restaurant. The food was delicious, the flavors were interesting and surprising. Our table tried two different appetizers (Fried Yucca and the hot roll), four entrees, (they were all excellent), and two desserts. Every dish was well thought out and presented in an attractive way. The cocktails were all wonderful, we enjoyed them immensely (as a table we tried 6 different options off the menu). Our server was attentive, I typically ask for no ice in my water, and she made sure to not get ice into the glass when she refilled it, which almost no one else does. I will be going back to this restaurant and recommending it to all my friends, seriously one of the best dining experiences I've had this year in Kansas City.
