After a soft opening this past weekend, Circle 7 Ranch Taphouse & Grill (14412 Clayton Road, Ballwin; 636-220-9797) will officially open its doors at 4 p.m. today, according to the restaurant's Facebook page.
Circle 7 Ranch is the latest project from Pete Ferretti and Buddy Coy, the team that has brought St. Louis Mandarin Lounge (44 Maryland Plaza; 314-367-4447) and the Pepper Lounge (2005 Locust Street; 314-241-2005).
The restaurant boasts at least feature unique to St. Louis (to the best of our knowledge): several tables have a beer-tap system at the table. You'll find Gut Check there. Or, more accurately, you'll find Gut Check underneath one of these tables.
