This week an unknown person found my blog by searching for “restaurants in the bible.” I found this humorous because, needless to say, I am 99.99999% certain there are no restaurants mentioned in the bible.
I wondered why a search engine would have directed this person to my site. Could it be because of a post I published in 2017 called Christian restaurant-ing?
Since I found it funny, I went to Facebook and posted a note about the search term.
Next thing I knew, my clever friends had started inventing imaginative names for biblical restaurants. Here they are in alphabetical order:
Calvary (not very popular, limited cuisine)
The Last Supper Bar & Grille
The Last Supper Club
Loaves and Fishes
Mary and Martha’s Place
Not Just Another Room at the Inn
Olive Garden of Eden
Olives of Gethsemane
The Stable, a Family Restaurant
3 Wise Guys Pizzeria
12 Hungry Men
Water & Wine
Do you have any ideas for names?

Garden of Eatin’, which is a real brand of natural and organic foods.
The Biblical Buffet
There is a very popular fancy prepared food shop here in East Hampton named Loaves and Fishes. They also have a gourmet cookware store.
Aha! Do miracles occur there?
Jan, there was for many years a restaurant called Noah’s Ark in St. Charles, MO, just south of the very first length of interstate highway ever, I-70. Much larger-than-life fiberglass animals could be seen on the decks of the boat-shaped building. Easily Googlable, if you want to pursue.
Thank you! I do know of it — and the image of Noah’s Ark is from there, a match cover.
The Ten Condiments
“Thou shalt not eat here in vain!”
Good one, love the slogan.
TGI Friday’s? (Although the original version would have been Sunday.)
