The Frenchman and Me

The Frenchman and Me

The future of the Frenchman and Me is in question.

Tim the owner passed away in December. The proprietor for the last 15-ish years had a heart attack. We loved Tim, the Wolf Creek eatery, and he will be missed. Rest in Peace Tim.

As for the restaurant it has been closed and nobody knows the future of this historic Bar. Opened in the late 1800’s this Wolf Creek legend has stood the test of time. Certainly the longest operating business in the Tri-County area.

I lived in WC in the 90’s dining at the Frenchman and Me nightly. Many still did in the Wolf Creek neighborhood. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner served with a stiff cocktail to boot.

I watched one game of the 1998 World Series sitting next to Curt Gowdy, who he himself had called a few World Series, at the bar at the Frenchman. Just awesome. I have a lot of memories at this Wolf Creek icon.

Many enjoyed the “broasted chicken” and for some Missouri River vacationers it was a must have on their annual trout trip! I was always fond of the Steak Sandwich with a side of hash browns. The salad with Blue Cheese dressing and a Crown on the rocks with a  Budweiser back. What else would a fella need?

So we send our best to the family. We fondly remember the sweet confines of the Frenchman and Me. And we hope that the Frenchman makes a comeback for the community of Wolf Creek.

  • I’ve been fishing the Missouri every year since 1995 and for years ate dinner at the Frenchman. Like the great fishing and history on the Missouri the Frenchman is part of that history to thousands of fly fishers. My condolences to the family. I sincerely hope that the restaurant will re-open and continue to be part of the culture of Wolf Creek.

  • My sons & I have been coming each spring & fall to fish the Missouri since 1997. The Frenchmen has been our favorite place to eat both breakfast & dinner. Tim served us many a fine meal to start the day & finish the day. He was a excellent & gracious host & we will miss him dearly. We send our condolences to the family & our wishes that the Frenchman carry on for many seasons to come.
