Station Grille

Fred Harvey revolutionized railroad dining by opening one of his restaurants in the Terminal Hotel at St. Louis Union Station. In order to provide efficiency, travelers ordered while still on board the train. Orders were then wired to the restaurant manager, so that people could come in, sit down enjoy a meal, and be on their way with as little time and hassle as possible. The most essential part of Fred Harvey's success, as well as the most popular feature of his restaurants were the Harvey Girls, who greeted and tended to patrons with classic Midwestern manners and hospitality. Fred Harvey's restaurant is now the Station Grille, which is located in the Union Station Hotel, and offers traditional American cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
