We drive about an hour to visit with a Old Marine Corp buddy at the restaurant. The fried chicken is very good. Ohters had the fish and loved it . The sides are nothing special.

Fried chicken is great but the cheeseburgers rock! Be sure to save room for the red velvet cake! Service is fast. there may be a wait sometimes. There is a little bar and you could sit outside while waiting. They will look for you.

We came twice and enjoyed both times. We had the chicken both times. It is very good. The only problem we have is the seating area. We were crowded into the 2nd dining room and the tables are way too big for two people. We were practically visiting with the next table. The sides are ok. Really go for the... More

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

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.
