“Best little place for lunch in the city ”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here with my family while visiting St Louis. Enjoyed wonderful fish tacos, crawfish enchilada's, and my son had a child sized portion of homemade chicken fingers. All of the food was hot and fresh. Very friendly wait staff.

Thanks for the great review. Crawfish enchiladas and fish tacos are two of our most popular dishes and we make the chicken fingers here fresh for the kids. Glad you enjoyed everything. John

“Fun atmosphere and the foods even better!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Had a blast on a recent trip to St. Louis when we stopped in BOB for dinner and drinks. There was such a fun feeling right away. We sat outside on the patio where the party seemed to be. The patio has a great New Orleans feel and the constant live music had patrons singing along while they dined. We lucked out it so happened to be BOB's yearly crab fest and it was a real treat! The soft shell crab po'boy was delish! We also tried the crawfish etoufee and oysters of course and nothing disappointed! The beer was cold and the service was friendly. If you are looking for a good time and great food Broadway Oyster Bar is where you need to be! We will for sure be back!

“Great atmosphere, beer, and food”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We really enjoyed this place. The food and beer they had on tap was excellent. The place was very crowded and we had to wait quite awhile for a table, though. This was also on a Saturday night so that is to be expected. If you like cajun food and a laid back atmosphere then I would definitely recommend this restaurant / bar

Glad you enjoyed your visit with us and thanks for great review. Sorry for the wait. We were probably having one of the seafood festivals we have once a month featuring crab, crawfish, shrimp, mussels, scallops or lobster. They are usually very well attended and result in a wait for a table. Thank you for waiting and very glad the wait was worthwhile. We hope to see you the next time you are in town. John

“Let the good times roll!!!!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Live music, fun people, fun place, and good food. We have been there 3 times and had a blast every time. Live bands that were good, and people enjoying themselves. We like oysters and have not been disappointed by theirs. The blue points were great.
