The Scene: Triumph Grill, located next to the Moto Museum across from Saint Louis University, is a full-service motorcycle-themed restaurant with a menu of American-style eats. Happy hour is restricted to the bar area, with seating available at a few dimly lit booths and tables away from the windows. The after-work crowd is a mild one, so if you're looking for a quiet place to unwind, this spot might do the trick.

The Food: Happy-hour appetizer specials include stuffed mushrooms, flash-fried asparagus, onion rings, smoked-salmon flatbread, wings, soft pretzels, buffalo chicken queso, housemade blue cheese kettle chips and calamari.

The whole stuffed mushroom caps get filled, battered and fried. Served with a garlic-Parmesan sauce, this indulgent dish was our favorite of the three we tried. Clearly, this happy-hour menu is a heavy one, not for the faint of heart.
