How about a good steak house like Outback. My husband says Red Lobster.

Oh Joy! Oh Rapture! Another fast food palace. Just what we need. Soon every neighborhood street will have a knee deep collection of wrappers and tossed food from Troglodytes tossing them out of their car windows. At this rate Wentzville will soon be the Capital of Fast Food "outlets."

This town has every type of eating facility except for a fish house and a steak house. Would love to see a Captain D's or Red Lobster - in addition to a Texas Roadhouse.

A good fish place would be nice, Red Lobster or a place that has good cat fish

Happy to have Sam's Club and Chick- Fil-A, Red Lobster is welcome as well. It's time for something new in Wentzville.

Let me see now,,, a good place to get a steak, or fish or even a good buffet would be really nice! Tired of driving out of Wentzville to eat at these type of places. Bring them in and watch how much more Wentzville will grow! Keep the money in Wentzville, along with more jobs for residents.

Yeah Chick Fil A!!! Finally a place to eat and the kids can play. Nobody builds play places anymore in restaurants. I would love to see a healthy place to eat go up in Wentzville. Bread Company gets so tiresome. Sweet Tomatoes, Jason's Deli, something with variety and you can pick a lot of healthy items instead of artery clogging fried junk food.

If we had a Hobby Lobby I'd never have to go any further East than Wentzville to shop. Once Sams gets here I'll replace my Costco membership with Sams and I'll be set! Too bad we're not getting a Costco, I love that store.

would love to see a Long John Silvers

Good job Paul. It's nice to know we have someone working for the best interest of the community!!

Jeanette Mimi's Cafe would be a nice addition for restaurants. How about some other stores like T.J. Max, Marshall's, and The Home Store?

Is Chick Fil A still coming. I thought it was going were O'Reilly Auto Parts ended up?
Sandra May 04, 2011 at 08:31 PM
There is a T.J. Max going in up at the Lake St. Louis Wal-Mart area in the fall of 2011.

how about 1 more bank?
Marty Witbeck June 14, 2011 at 01:25 AM
Cute. 1 more bank. How about a full sized university? I would love to attend theatrical events, take auto-repair, gardening, language or other courses. College towns are interesting places and are good for attracting businesses too.

A Club Fitness location would be AWESOME!!!
Dan smith August 14, 2011 at 06:07 PM
Is the chic-fil-a still coming? Or even SAMs club? Seems like wentzville let's chances slip by, like the bass pro!
Maggie Rotermund August 15, 2011 at 01:01 AM

I heard Club Fitness IS coming to Wentzville!!! Where and when??? Very excited about Chick-fil-A and Sam's! I love not having to leave Wentzville, we have everything right here in our backyard!! That's why I moved here :)
MBS August 19, 2011 at 04:32 AM
I agree!!!
Kev September 18, 2011 at 07:58 AM
I'd like to see a good steak house like Texas Roadhouse or Longhorn. A Red Lobster would be nice. And a Panda Express!
Terp4Life October 21, 2011 at 05:29 AM
I would vote for a Red Lobster also. I am happy about Chic-Fil-A. I am new to the area (from the east coast) and my family and I frequent the city of St. Louis to dine at the ecclectic restaurants. I would also like to see some of these restaurants that are not a national chain.
Jim Wilson October 23, 2011 at 01:52 AM
We would like to see some kind of seafood place here. I would vote for a Red Lobster also. Even a Long John Silvers, Or Captin D's. Maybe even a Popeyes Chicken Place.
Doug Smith October 23, 2011 at 01:15 PM
Great! More businesses and restaurants coming to Wentzville that I am sure are not paying property taxes, thus putting more of the burden of funding the schools on home and property owners.
Maureen November 30, 2011 at 03:18 PM
We need a " Trader Joes" in Wentzville...they have something for everyone! (: It's a fun place with some "Healthier" options (: Yes! I too love Wentzville, and getting a "Trader Joes" would save me the ride to Chesterfield!

I would absolutely love to see a seafood resturant...like my fav RED LOBSTER.....
Jane Hogan February 22, 2012 at 06:28 PM
We love Captain D's! Every time we go into St Charles, we just HAVE to go there to eat. We always tell them that they need to open one out in Wentzville. There are no fish places between Wentzville and St Peters!
