Serves meat, vegan options available. This independent cinema is also a casual, counter service restaurant and pub. They have as many vegan entrees as they have meat entrees and all of the appetizers are vegetarian or vegan. The plant-based sandwiches feature tofu, tempeh, and fresh veggies. Desserts are almost always vegan. Open Wed-Sun 11:00am-8:00pm. Hours have been reduced due to COVID. Will be open throughout the week again in the future.

We love Bookhouse!

The vegan options are quite good and every time I've been, there has been a vegan version of the daily special as well as vegan desserts on offer. The staff are all very friendly. The fries are downright fuel for cravings. We just moved back to Joplin and were thrilled to find such a cool little theater that also offered food we could enjoy.

Pros: Impossible burger available with vegan cheese!, Vegan condiments and desserts, Those fries are MAGIC

Pleasant surprise

Pub food found in the same building as an independent cinema with a full plant based menu - not what I expected to find in a somewhat small town. If, like me, you find yourself driving through Joplin, stop on by! The fries are clearly handmade in house - thick cut and with the potato skin still on! I had a vegan raspberry vanilla Italian soda which was cute and delicious(ask which vegan milk if you have a nut allergy, sign said oat but employee told me they only had almond milk). I had the tempeh blt which was only okay for me, but they had many other options I could choose from. Last, but not least, they had vegan apple pie and vegan cherry pie. You will not be disappointed!

Pros: Several options - meal, drinks, & desserts, Inexpensive

Favorite Restaurant in Town

Bookhouse is my family's first choice for dining out! They deserve 5 stars for their friendly atmosphere, amazing food and outstanding service. Their menu has options for every palate, with my favorites being the black bean quinoa tacos and the vegan chocolate cake. Their hummus is amazing and we love their daily specials. Their staff members cater to the patrons, getting to know everyone by name. They have great indoor and outdoor dining areas and their cinema is an added bonus! Do yourself favor and visit Bookhouse soon!

Pros: Excellent Food, Friendly Staff, Great Atmosphere

Best Veg in Joplin

Vegan and vegetarian options are apart of Bookhouse Cinema's DNA. There are always multiple veg options and substitutions. They even have vegan cheese and cake! Safe for all veg diets with the best ambiance and flavor to boot. There are no other restaurants in the Joplin area with a staff so friendly and vegan cuisine so tastey!

Pros: Excellent Food, Wide Variety, Friendly Staff
