Jerry’s Bait Shop was originally established in 1994 by 5 partners then purchased by John Kelly and Mike Rounkles in 2001. The original location still stands firmly in Lenexa and continues to chart a course under the creed “A cold beer and shot of tequila served in a warm and friendly atmosphere”. Jerry’s Bait Shop has been bringing rock and roll gospel to the good people of Lenexa for 12 years. Jerry’s Bait Shop host’s live music most nights of the week, feature award winning menu items and sponsors various charitable events throughout the year.
The atmosphere is eclectic, a little rustic and full on relaxed, drawing inspiration from far away islands and nearby lakeside docks. Expect a little attitude with our brand of hospitality ‘cause after all, rock and roll is at the heart of everything we do. We’re home to the businessman, workingman, the family and the musician; no one leaves our hallowed doors a stranger.
Jerry’s features a full menu with our award winning pizzas as the centerpiece. Our chef’s work hard each day to create amazing and unique food sure to keep you coming back for both lunch and dinner.
