The Story of the Shipwreck

Shipwreck Bloody Mary

Our amazing, one of a kind Bloody Mary, topped with a cheeseburger and other tasty morsels!! 

 

Our Award Winning Shipwreck Bloody Mary

Our Shipwrecks bring people from miles around, and they have also won many awards and prizes at various events and competitions. The Shipwreck Bloody Mary is named in reference to the sinking of the Steamer Columbia, a steamboat that sank in 1918, causing the loss of 87 lives and also the largest maritime disaster in Illinois River history. The Columbia was a large ship, able to carry up to 1000 passengers on excursions up and down the Illinois RIver. Sadly, on a return trip to Pekin from Fresco Park(Peoria Heights) the boat hit a sunken stump and ultimately sank, right near our location here at Kuchie's on the Water in Creve Coeur.
