My husband showed up here at 9 on a Thursday night. The host was really polite and told us that there would be 30-45 minute wait, but asked for my cell phone number so that he could text us when our table was ready. We were seated in the back patio, right next to the live music stage. It was... More

This place is phenomenal. I've been for drinks several times, but (inexplicably) it's been forever since I've eaten there. After our plans downtown went south, my wife and decided to stop in for an early dinner. The seafood is fresh and expertly prepared and the oysters delicious...as good as I've ever had, other than on the coasts. I had a... More

Excellent seafood choices, prepared exceptionally well, and terrific service! After several recommendations by locals we encountered throughout the day after we asked them to recommend a place for dinner, we made it to Broadway Oyster Bar and very glad we did. Probably the best Oysters Rockefeller, Lobster PoBoy Sandwich, and Crab Cakes we've ever had. Sounds weird...we know, but you've... More

We were looking for a brewery. We saw that 4 Hands brewery was attached to this bar & grill. We tried the beer which was outstanding and so was the appetizers! It was an interesting place with a lot of history. The staff was friendly & attentive! A must do in St Louis!!
