Port Cape Girardeau Restaurant and Lounge in Warehouse Row is housed in a circa-1860 warehouse. It is haunted by an unknown female ghost nicknamed Belle. The bartender who named her said that she showed him she liked the name he gave her. A few days after he thought up the name, a bell in the downstairs hall began ringing by itself. Belle’s apparition has been seen in a 19th-century long dress, and she also has made noises and footsteps noticed by customers and staff. Orbs have appeared here as well, even showing up in photographs.

  1. We took our daughter to semo for college tour Weds Oct 29th 2014. Afterwards we decided to grab something to eat and found ourselves at Port Cape! We were one of two people eating in the restaurant at the time with just a few waitresses around and probably a cook anyway we were talking and my cell phone started to ring we decided to just let it go to voicemail none of us touched my phone. It had other ideas it answered by itself and also was put on speaker phone as we sat and watched it. With my cell it needs to be swiped to answer and speaker needs to be pressed. Well I had to answer the phone because someone was talking on it which one was my friend, I told her I would call her back and we all chuckled about what just happened so we asked our waitress in a joking way if this place was haunted at the time we knew nothing about the history of the restaurant. When we were finished we left the restaurant and turned around to take some pictures of our daughter and of the restaurant on October 30th we decided to look back at the pictures on our daughters phone and we saw an image of a woman in one of the pics shes in the window we still have it if anyone wants to see if its the same woman.

  2. We had eaten there about two years ago while visiting our daughter at SEMO, we also went their just yesterday for a late lunch. When we visited the first time I needed to use the restroom and went by myself. No one was in the ladies room but I got totally freaked out in there, the hairs on my arms stood up and I got the heck out of there. This has not been the first time something like this has happened to me, but my husband and daughter laughed. Well yesterday I made my daughter come with me to the ladies room. Walking all the way to the back, my daughter actually said, “I can see what you mean mom, don’t get the feeling like you do but sure seems like a good place for a murder in this hallway!” She gave me a good laugh, but this time I didn’t get that feeling I was being watched. Googled to see if the place was haunted and got the info I so needed to know. Have to add, our meals were fantastic!
