Two years ago, according to The Telegraph, EdgeWild was named one of the best winery restaurants in the country. The restaurant is now crossing the river to open its third location in Edwardsville.

“Edwardsville is the right market for our next restaurant,” Todd Wyatt, chief operating officer for EdgeWild, told The Telegraph.

“We’ve done two restaurants in St. Louis. We were looking outside the St. Louis market, but still keeping it somewhat close to home. The demographics, everything, said that Edwardsville should be the right area. We’re excited to bring our brand and what we do. We feel we’re going to fill a niche of what’s available.”

According to the Telegraph, the restaurant sees Edwardsville as somewhere between high-end dinning and lower end fare. The vast menu includes 14 appetizers and 10 entrees including pizza, burgers, steak, pasta, salad and their award-winning wings. Another fan favorite from the existing locations is their pistachio-herbed goat cheese.

The burger, as well as their fries, is good but nothing extraordinary. Their homemade barbeque chips, however, are definitely worth trying.

The food paired nicely with the restaurant’s rustic yet modern aesthetic. EdgeWild’s atmosphere is your typical bar atmosphere with about 20 TVs all streaming the latest sports games but Andy Kohn, the owner, requires that the sound be off.

“What we find, and what we believe, is that we’re trying to appeal to people who want decent ambiance, and food and wine that appeals to a wife, and the husband doesn’t miss out on seeing the game at the same time. But, we don’t want that to be the overriding thing,” Kohn told The Telegraph.

One unique feature of restaurant’s setting was a long table located towards the center. Its purpose was for random strangers to talk and meet new people.

EdgeWild is for sure worth trying because of its inviting environment, good service and amazing barbeque chips.
