Building A Restaurant Website

Building A Restaurant Website

My posts have been sporadic lately as I have been wrapping up a number of side projects that I hope to reveal soon.  Today, I am pleased to unveil the first of these projects.  Recently, I was approached about building a restaurant website.  This was an odd request because in the past I have written a number of posts about how lousy most restaurant websites are.  I am no web designer, but I am opinionated and up for a challenge.

In designing a website for a Kansas City Steakhouse, I really set out to build something that would appeal to me.  There are several pages designed for foodies to provide all of the information about steaks they could ever want.  There are pages for history buffs about the historic nature of the building.  There are even pages dedicated to the live Kansas City Jazz you can find at the restaurant.  Every menu, wine list, and whiskey list is in html and fully searchable.  The information is plentiful, but hopefully easy to navigate as well.

Today, I make my case about why I feel I built a better restaurant website.  Take a look at the post and website.  Then let me know what you think.

    David, … I hope you saved the “before-and-after”of your restaurant’s site. Great job with the design, and the post.

    Damn, David … your new design makes The Majestic seem like a different place! I loved what you did even before seeing the old version, but now I’ve seen it, I’m thinking the owners owe you a lot. What an improvement. And for anyone looking at a restaurant website, that may be all they know about the place … what they see on their screen.
