We had visitors from Florida during the fall and wanted to take them to an authentic STL jazz/blues place. We chose well when we chose BOB. We first had dinner inside and loaded up on fresh seafood that was amazing. Then we went out on the patio to enjoy the music. The staff was friendly... read more

Broadway Oyster Bar clearly has a long history. The atmosphere is fantastic, and they often have live music. The food is excellent! The space is small but comfortable. I went on a date here and we were seated at the table in front of the fireplace. Very cool. All of their food is good, but I HIGHLY recommend the crawfish... More

Broadway Oyster Bar (BOB) is a terrific spot for a casual lunch or dinner, AND a great venue for live music in the evening. Service is very friendly. Food (mostly Cajun or creole) is authentic, appropriately seasoned and delicious. Portions are generous. The atmosphere is fun and very casual. If it is warm enough, the covered patio is a great...

We've gone here when it has been quiet and when it has been very busy. Both visits were outstanding. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. They usually have live music too!

Everything was absolutely flavorful. Bloody Mary's are above and beyond. I had the shrimp and grits which were in fritter format, but creamy on the inside like good grits should be. Partner had an oyster po boy and left a happy full boy. Environment is so relaxed and friendly--the perfect place to rush into for a hangover brunch but elegant... More

Thank you for visiting and for the awesome review. Providing flavorful food is important to us because flavor is what Cajun Creole food is all about, not straight heat. We are very proud of our Bloodies, specialty drinks and all of our food. We try to be fast, relaxed and friendly, a place where you can come, have fun and... More
