About Us

When we acquired the rights to West End Bar & Grille in 1993, the West End Bar & Grille was a quiet establishment at the far end of the Fair with little traffic and even less business.

Since then the West End family has turned the West End Bar & Grille into one of the State Fairs hidden gems that has been discovered and celebrated! With the biggest and best beer selection in the Fair, the best free live music and some of the tastiest foods, the West End is the place to be. It is one of the only places at the Fair where you can kick back your heels on a comfortable sun deck, watch the  game of your choice on one of several televisions, or pull up a bar stool at the Cabana Bar and make yourself comfortable while the wait staff serves you.  Ask any one of our numerous returning customers!

Conveniently located at the end of the midway, the West End Bar & Grille offers one of the best places to enjoy your day at the Fair. Find us at the very far west end of the midway. We are located between Kiddie Land and the end of the Midway. For your convenience, the easiest place for you to park is right near the West End at GATES 6 & 7! You will be suprised how easy it is to get in to and leave the Fairgrounds. And, the price to park is the same as the other Fair parking areas!

And when you are at the Fair, don’t forget to visit our NEW sister restaurant, Cahoots Ale House, located on Restaurant Row across from Anna’s (near Gate 4).  Look for our brand new & exciting look and delicious new Country-Western menu!
