In 1873, this building was established as a grocery and general store. It was purchased by the Hendel family 1915.
For the next 78 years, the store continued as a specialty grocery and butcher shop, offering quality products and superior service until Henry and Marge Hendel retired in August 1993.
In November 1994, Ed Bennett bought the historic building and transformed it into a restaurant. Throughout the years, Hendel’s has remained a landmark in Old Town Florissant.
To enhance your dining experience, we added a new 700-square-foot room in February 2009. Our custom-made oak bar offers a new space where you can enjoy specialty drinks, an extensive estate wine selection and craft beers.
Ed Bennett passed away in August 2009, and while we all miss him dearly, his dreams live on through his family Julie, Josh, Nathan and Christina.
We are honored to deliver quality service and exemplary cuisine to the community of Old Town Florissant.
Thank you for being our guest.
