Brass Door Restaurants' famous pork chops started in 1982 when then-owner Don Davidsmeyer wanted to increase business at the small-town restaurant he had purchased a few years earlier. He knew volume was a key to his success and wanted to use pork in this formula. He also wanted to utilize the family-style dining concept which he had seen as successful at other restaurants across the country. The steaming bowls of mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, biscuits, and award-winning golden fried pork chops became popular with the locals immediately. Soon customers were coming from outside of Greene County from all over west central Illinois and the St. Louis metro area to enjoy “those good pork chops.”
What a lot of people don’t know about the Brass Door is that our Prime rib is almost as popular as our pork chops. Served only on weekends (Friday & Saturday) our Prime rib is cooked to order and served au jus with horseradish and a choice of potato and salad. While never having been prominent on our menu our rich Caesar salad is very popular and has quite a following. We also offer a variety of hand-cut steaks, fried or broiled chicken, fish, and our crunchy golden fried jumbo shrimp. Whether you’re hungry for family style, traditional dining, or need catering the Brass Door would like to welcome you to our house.
