Great place to take out of town guests or in town friends and family. Food ranges from small and casual to full multi course options. Love the array of choices. Good music, too!

Came across this place by chance. A very quirky place with awesome food and service. It was busier than I expected for a Tuesday night but the wait time was minimal. Our waitress was very efficient and was very helpful in instructing the proper way the enjoy crawfish. Great place.

Went here with a group of 10. It was a blast. The food was good and the entertainment was great. We will definitely go back soon to enjoy the atmosphere. I would recommend for a casual fun experience.

We were looking for a good place to eat in st louis and many people suggested us to go here for good seafood. We got gulf oysters and 1/2 king crab. The food was fresh and good. It's a bit pricy for small amount of food but that is understandable for fresh seafood in Midwest. However, the place was very... More

Our usual place to eat prior to a St. Louis Cardinal game was not opened so we walked south on Broadway to the Oyster Bar. This fun is contagious. As soon as we walked up and out our name in, we had that feeling of "good times" are happening hear. It took about 15 minutes to get seated and there... More

It is our good luck that your usual spot was not open. Their loss and our gain. You certainly hit the nail on the head with your observation that everyone was talking, laughing and having a good time. That is what we are trying to provide, a good time, and the food, service, music and atmosphere hopefully all come together... More

Crawfish enchiladas was amazing! It was so different then anything I have ever tried. The jambalaya was okay, nothing spectacular... The music was good. It was a delight to hear, even though we had a 6mknth baby... He was all smiles!

Thank you for the outstanding review. The crawfish enchiladas are one of our most popular dishes and we are very happy you enjoyed them. We are also glad that the live music kept your 6 month old happy and smiling. We hope both you and the baby return often. John More

Nice place and fast service, nice & live music. Close to stadium area. Must try by everyone. Foods are mainly fast food types.

We like the suggestion that everyone "must try" our place as long as they do not all come in at once! Might be a little too crowded. Thank you for the nice review. We hope to see you again. John More

This place is a lot of fun. Great atmosphere. Great menu and food. Great music. The location isn't where maybe you would be looking but sometimes that is where the best places are. Plus it wouldn't fit in if it were right downtown.
