JacobMyers is a family owned restaurant that has served the Dayton community for the past twenty years. We started off in 1998 as a small deli in the downtown area. Our goal was to provide gourmet, unique sandwiches and fresh homemade soups. We got our name from our Great Aunt and Uncle Von Dee Cruz who had a business in St. Louis, Missouri called JacobMeyers Tavern that was opened in the '30s. While we weren't allowed in there, we did always love the name. We asked if we could use the name and in 2004 they happily agreed. Now days we have moved to the banks of the Chickamauga river, less than a mile from our old location, and have expanded our menu to include 100% black angus steaks, seafood and of course our classic sandwiches. While things have changed over the last two decades our dedication to over the top quality and service has not. We look forward to the next twenty and invite you all to come by.
