The Frenchman's Widow

About Us

Since 2013

The Grand Opening of The Frenchman’s Widow in Herrin, IL was officially May 20, 2013 but the story and journey of the new restaurant and bar began long before this date. Located at 201 N 16th St. in Herrin, IL the establishment sits at the same address and in the same building as the well-known former Berra’s Tavern. 

Great food at great prices was a key focus in the development of the menu at The Frenchman’s Widow. Quality was key but could not become compromised by price and we feel we have found the perfect balance. Our menu is classic pub fare with a culinary twist all of which can appeal to all walks of life and residents of Southern Illinois.
