Have been eating here on occasion for many years. Way back when, we considered it practically a "fine dining" establishment, but it's pretty casual nowadays. Many of us still call it Moonlight (old habits & all). Their house salad dressing has been well known for many, many years. There's times when we'll stop by just to pick up a carry-out... More

No better chicken in the St. Louis area! Grew up with this restaurant as a special place to celebrate. Has grown to be known as one of the best places to go for chicken in the Midwest! Worth the drive!

Castelli's has gotten the ways of yester-year back! Before Tracy and Matt took over the business, the food was sub-par and we had basically stopped going there to eat. When they took over, things changed and the food is as good as it was years ago...if not better. The fried chicken is very good as are all of the other... More

We had the fried chicken and prime rib. Both were excellent and the service was outstanding. Highly recommend.

The steaks are good, the salad with roman dressing and good fried chicken. Friendly staff, atmosphere. You can get a ride from the casino if you need it.

We visited for a meeting and had dinner. I had the "special" 8 oz sirloin. Good, plain steak. It was cooked as requested with mushrooms and was very good. It came with a huge, perfect baked potato and salad. I opted for the house dressing which was a sort of caesar. It was excellent. My wife had chicken livers which... More

Most of the food is very good here, I particularly enjoy the fried chicken and breaded pork chops. The grilled pork chops are also very good. Tracy's special salad is also excellent. Good bar and good desserts as well. Great friendly service. Gets crowded on weekends, especially on Sunday.

Ordered a carry-out family dinner consisting of chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad and bread. It was truly the most bland meal I've had in a very long time. Chicken fingers had absolutely no flavor with the exception of the honey mustard sauce we made ourselves because the restaurant didn't provide any. I've had more flavorful green beans opening...
