Dropped in at the Broadway Oyster Bar last night after finding it on Trip Advisor and let me tell you. We were not disappointed. We had a perfect evening sitting on the awesome patio, eating some Cajun food, drinking good drinks, and listening to live music. I felt like I was transported away from the city and into the bayou.... More

We stopped here on a recommendation from a friend and loved it. We sat on the covered patio and listened to a blues band on a Saturday afternoon. Wasn't expecting a band during the day so it was a surprise treat. We tried the new alligator cheesecake appetizer. I personally thought it sounded gross but I am so glad my... More

Thanks for the love. No one ever gets too much love. Very happy that you enjoyed the food and the music. We have live music 7 nights per week and twice on most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The alligator and shrimp cheesecake is a savory appetizer, not a sweet desert and is very popular. Glad you liked it and the... More

We went here on a recommendation from a local and ohhhhh were we glad! We sat outside in the covered patio and felt like we were in a very cool, hip, blues place. Lots of personality. I ordered the shrimp and grits and it was delicious. I am still thinking about it days later. My husband ordered the Crawfish enchiladas... More

Broadway Oyster Bar never disappoints!! The staff is friendly and accommodating even with a large baseball crowd. We love to sit out on the patio and listen to the live music! The food is beyond delicious! We are forcing ourselves to try new things on the menu because we have our old favorites that we simply crave. We have never... More

As we were passing through St. Louis we stopped by the Broadway Oyster Bar because a friend recommended it. I was a little worried since I had never eaten an oyster before. My hubby loves oysters and was thrilled. I tried the grilled oysters. OMG! Delicious! I then had the Ahi Tuna Fajitas they were great! Everything was cooked perfectly... More

Welcome to the oyster eating family! Char grilled oysters are a great way to enter into the oyster eating fraternity as they are lightly cooked over an open flame and doused with garlic butter, Creole spices and grated Parmesan cheese. What is there to not like? Thanks for the awesome review and we look forward to your return. We will... More

Stopped in before a Cardinal game for a few appetizers and friendly baseball chatter. Mussels and BBQ shrimp are highly recommended! Patio servers and live music were on point as well! Definitely returning next time in St. Louis......awesome experience!

Great choice for ballgames at Busch. Outdoor dining, blues music, great food, and good beer choices. Eggplant/crawfish appetizer was one of the best dishes I've ever had. Oysters with crawfish were equally good, but the oysters were small.

We make it a point to eat here anytime we are even near St. Louis. This is the best New Orleans style food anywhere outside of New Orleans, and I'm not sure it isn't better than anyplace in New Orleans! The Alligator Sausage & Shrimp Cheesecake is to die for - don't let the name scare you away! The Crawfish... More

Wife and I stumbled upon this find during our Labor Day, 2014 attendance at the Big Muddy Blues Festival. Had the best fresh catfish meal I can remember in my 62 years. Stone's throw from Busch stadium.

We were lucky enough to find a spot right away at the bar on a Saturday night. We shared a massive bucket of crawfish, an order of gator tail, and Gulf oysters on the half shell. The crawfish were great, as fresh as you are going to get away from the Gulf. The gator was a little disappointing. I like... More
