Great meal with Laura before the Cardinals game

Definitely ask for Laura as your server. She was great. Cute and relaxed atmosphere. Not far from the stadium. Good food and plain fun!!!!!

Ordered a half dozen oysters on the half shell. Superb. Well shucked and fresh. They have about 6 different ways to order oysters. Crawfish were spicy and tasty. Man this was good stuff.

Thank you for the outstanding review. We are very happy that you enjoyed our oysters and our crawfish since they are two of our staple items. It is not a good thing if your name is Broadway Oyster Bar and you have bad oysters! Our come in fresh nearly every day. Thanks again and we hope to see you again.... More

Best place to experience NOLA like atmosphere and food outside of NOLA. And hell, this place is even better than many of the places I ate at in NOLA, and that is saying a lot. St. Louis has a small, but criminally underrated food scene, and Broadway Oyster Bar (BOB) sits on top of that. A colorful menu with a... More

Fun place. Good crowd. Good food. Good value. The place is a dive located near ballpark midway between two active railways. Despite appearances, everyone very organized and professional. John circulates to make sure things are right. We will return.

You know, we do surprise a lot of people. By appearances, we are just a dive bar located on the southern edge of downtown. Thanks to guests like you who see beyond the dive facade and come in to enjoy the food, music and character of BOB, we have become much more than appearances suggest. Thank you for seeing beyond...

This is another MUST DO for me when we go to St. Louis. The vibe is so French Quarter it's trippy. And the food is soooo good. I had crawfish mac and cheese. The family got other cheesy cajun and southern comfort foods. It was all just fabulous!!! Wait staff was lovely.

Great review! Thank you so much for visiting us and for taking the time to write such a terrific review. We particularly like the title of your review, "if you can't go to New Orleans, go here." Sounds like words to live by for me! Looking forward to seeing you on your next visit to St. Louis. John More

Thank you for the terrific review. We do get very busy before baseball games but we will soon have more seating and bathrooms available for guests as soon as our new patio is completed.

Looking for local ambiance, good food, indoor/outdoor seating and live music? Look no further! With a cajun flair you will enjoy crawfish, oysters, house specialties as well as traditional favorites. I love coming here but especially before or after a ballgame. It's very rustic on the patio but fun to enjoy local and sometimes out of town musicians. Be sure... More

Many thanks for your terrific review. We love the many regulars who come to BOB before Cardinal games and have been doing so for many years. It is always a fun scene with the many Cardinal fans as well as the out of town fans in town to support their team. We all have a lot of fun. Thank you... More

Cool hang out and great music. Catch a cards game and then get your creole on! I recommend an order of pub chips and a dozen cold beers.
