About Us



When friends and high school classmates Scott Schmelzel and “Jimbo” Sinovic decided to go into business together, they had a vision to create a restaurant and bar that would not only bring good food and beverages to downtown Belleville, but also wanted to create an atmosphere that would contribute to the community.
Big Daddy’s was established in 1999 by Scott Schmelzel and Jimbo Sinovic. The Big Daddy’s name and slogan “The Best Bar In The Whole Wide World” became a house hold name within a few years. Great Food, fresh Beer  and drink specials from lunch to late night, there is no reason anyone can’t stop by and claim Big Daddy’s 618 “The Best Bar In The Whole Wide World”.
