My family had the pleasure of holding my niece's wedding at The Library with 2 days notice!!!!

This is a friendly little drink and eat pub. The theme is obvious and apps are great. Live music offered on weekends. Great place for internet use and location is also nice.

It's called The Library, but u won't find any books there. It's a fun gathering place for college age students as well as adults. Great live musicians offered from 6-9 pm on Friday nights then the dj rocks the house from 9-12. Super friendly staff, well educated bartenders plus an outside patio. They even have appetizers on Friday night from... More

Nice cozy place to have a drink with friends after a long day. They have inside and outside areas to fit any mood. Friday nights very affordable finger foods.

The bar had a great atmosphere inside and refreshing outdoor seating. The food was good for bar food, and they had a good variety of beers. I would recommend checking it out.

I like the fact that the owner is there most of the time. They have really decent food coming out of the kitchen and most of the time the drinks are spot on. Try the pizza, it's modeled after the original IMO's of St. Louis but I think The Library's pizza is better. It's not your typical Cape Girardeau college... More

My brothers and I met at The Library to hang out and visit. We were greeted promptly and given the opportunity to choose our seating. The owner then greeted us and took our drink orders. We ordered some appetizers. The food was great and the service was great too. They have an extensive beer menu and drink specials. We visited... More
