Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar® in Lee’s Summit is getting out the scissors! The Lee’s Summit restaurant location is now fully open! Join us in celebration, on June 15th at 4:00 pm, when the Chamber of Commerce welcomes the new Lee’s Summit restaurant and the ribbon cutting ceremony takes place.

The grand opening was held on the May 19 – 21 weekend and was an outstanding success! Early morning rain did not deter attendees. By 8:00 a.m. a line was already starting to form. The skies cleared, and almost two hundred people waited to get in the doors. A huge thank you goes out to Sherri Hewett who was first in line!

General Manager, John Riley, and partner JD House, were on the scene to greet people and welcome them to the new Big Whiskey’s site. They also distributed special coupon booklets to the first one hundred visitors. The booklets contained 52 weeks of gift certificates for delicious Big Whiskey menu items.

“It is such a pleasure to meet and greet the people in the community,” Riley said. “There is no better way to bring people together than with great food and a friendly fun atmosphere.”

You can find us in the popular Summit Fair Center at 860 NW Blue Parkway, suite 101, just off I-470 in Lee’s Summit. Open for lunch, happy hour, dinner, and late night 7 days a week, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. with food served until midnight.

Lee’s Summit will be offering all of the delicious Big Whiskey’s meals you’ve grown to love over the years. Check out our menu and don’t miss out on our featured hand-cut steaks, craft burgers, award-winning wings, and more!
