Our Story

“Thirty years ago, we opened the 2nd Street Emporium in the heart of downtown Webster City. We wanted to provide quality food in a small town where the atmosphere of our restaurant made everyone feel welcome. We have strived to become known as a place where you can go to celebrate any occasion… or no occasion at all. Our staff works hard to provide our guests with the highest quality dining experience from a friendly smile when you walk in the door to using the best ingredients we can find to create meals that leave satisfied. For instance, we only serve Certified Angus Beef® because we know that you can taste the difference and that you deserve only the best.

Since we opened our doors in 1980, our number one asset has been you, our customer. We have never taken our customers for granted and know that the success of the Emporium depends on your happiness. Thank you for choosing to dine with us. We look forward to having you join us soon.”
