We are huge fans of New Orleans and New Orleans food and are always looking for the real thing. This is the real thing. We specifically went during a Cardinals game, and early in the evening, so we had the back room to ourselves and no music. Just the way we liked it. The building itself is really old, and... More

What a neat little place!!! Superior service- you can tell that they are very proud of what they have here!! BOB is eclectic but very welcoming...and the food cannot be beat at reasonable prices... We were lucky to meet some locals who told us to go here....it is a couple blocks from the ballpark....highly recommend!!!

The food was very dry and the music would have been fine if I hadn't been sat right in front of the stage. I was not impressed with the food for the price.

AMAZING FOOD, DRINKS, ATMOSPHERE, AND WAIT STAFF! We went TWICE on our 3 day trip to St. Louis. Order the crawfish enchiladas, you won't be disappointed! Don't forget to order a bloody mary either! This is one of the best, if not the best place to eat in St. Louis. We will be back next time we're in town!

Worth the walk to the other side of the tracks for an early dinner (great value cajun and more expensive seafood) served in a relaxed manner from a beer tray. The best follows at 9pm (ish) when the band starts for some of the best blues, RnB around which it seems has been going forever (40 years). Different crowd comes... More

Sounds like a Soulard Blues Band Jam Session. They have been happening here every Monday night for over 30 years and the list of musicians who have sat in is legendary. Very glad you got a little taste of St. Louis blues history and that it went down smooth. It is a special night and different every Monday. Thanks for... More

My husband and I went to St Louis for our 25th anniversary to see two Red Sox/Cardinals games. We are from Boston. The Red Sox lost the two games we went to but won the night we went to Broadway Oyster Bar. However, it was all worth it missing that game to enjoy some of the best food we have... More

Wow! Wow! Wow! What an awesome review. For a couple from Boston who have access to a tremendous amount of fresh oysters and seafood to give us such a great review is overwhelming. It is just as meaningful as when guests from Louisiana love our Cajun/Creole food. Special thanks for describing us as "down to earth" as well. Very kind.... More

Grew up in STL and have eaten here throughout the years. athe food had evolved and gets better and better. The atmosphere is eclectic and the music is always very good. This is a classic STL landmark & a must try.

Really neat spot. Enjoyed the outside seating and eclectic vibe. Very funky and fun place to hang out and enjoy a nice meal. We ate there twice in the same day for lunch and dinner.

We love it when a review mentions that they had "fun". Fun is what we really sell and the food, drink, atmosphere, service and music all come together to hopefully provide that "fun" component. Thank you for coming and having fun and many thanks for the great review. John More

Terrific review. Thanks for mentioning the musical entertainment that we feature as well as the food and drink. The fact that we are a music venue as well as a restaurant and bar is often overlooked by even long term St. Louisans. Thanks again for the kind words. John More
