Great time

omgoodness the food was so good. The atmosphere was great. First time having oysters and loved them. Best food for the ending of a birthday weekend trip. Will be back to St. Louis soon and definitely stopping in to taste more.

We attended a wedding reception at the Broadway Oyster Bar - what a fun place! I recommend the ginger beer, the hushpuppies, the gumbo.

visited this bar based on recommendation, found snow crab on the menu that I really wanted to try. I understood to be one serving that ended up to be one and half crab. Pity it was last day I visited this place the food great left me wanting more. Lots of drinks.

Thanks for the outstanding review. If you return to St. Louis,, please come back and visit us early in your stay. One of our favorite occurrences is when out of town guests visit us and have such a great experience that they come back again and again before they go home. Right now the record is 5 nights in a...

I love this restaurant. The atmosphere is fantastic. Outside seating is great. The grilled oysters sautaed in butter parmian cheese and garlic is to dye for. Great place to hang out with friends. Also close to bush stadium. So great before or after a cardinal game.

This is a cajun restaurant with all types of cajun food. It's a wildly decorated place with good cajun food.l However, it is small and popular and you may have to wait depending on the time of day or day of the week you go. I would recommend it for adults as it is a place you would like to... More

Some great Crawfish Bisque to start, and then perhaps some Crawfish Mona as an entree, and finish up with some really good bread pudding. And if they happen to have the Lobster Bisque that day, by all means try that. A small place that more than doubles in size when they can use the patio. They often have live music... More

Really loved this little hole in the wall. Awesome bloody mary's and their food is far better than you'd think. Definitely try the oysters.

Went to Broadway Oyster bar on the advice of a friend and we were all glad we did. Don't let the looks of this place fool you, it is nothing fancy, the food is great. We tried the fried oysters and they were awesome. Will definitely go back next time we are in town.
