The BoodaLu Story


The BoodaLu Steakhouse / Muddy Dog Bar is the first restaurant for owners, Michael and Kathy, who have lived in the Quincy area full time since their retirements in 2007.   Michael had become bored after six years of retirement and convinced Kathy they should buy an old building and open a restaurant. They named it after their two dogs that lived with them for years –Booda and Lulu.

They bought a beautiful, 1870’s era building that had previously housed a restaurant. They did extensive and much needed structural restoration on the building including new basement supports, roof and kitchen.  An elevator was added to allow the use of the upstairs for private parties and for a “speak easy” type bar that will be open this fall.

The BoodaLu Steakhouse / Muddy Dog Bar is located in Quincy, Il a few hundred feet from the Mississippi River in a beautiful, old, restored building.  Our staff is dedicated to consistently providing great service, delicious food, and superb beverages all within a warm and inviting place with a view of the Mississippi River.  We want our guests to have a satisfying dining experience every time they visit.


Our menu is “classic steakhouse” and features great steaks, chops, seafood and salads.  We serve only aged, certified Angus beef, which includes filet,  rib eye and KC strip steaks.  We buy the best we can and cook it the way you like.  We have an extensive wine list and offer classic cocktails like a Rob Roy or a Harvey Wallbanger but we can make nearly any libation you want.

We believe you will agree that when you experience great service AND delicious food in a beautiful place you will have an excellent dining experience and will become a repeat customer.
