“Best Seafood in Saint Louis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Broadway Oyster Bar is a fantastic place if you like Oysters, crawfish, or any sort of cajun foods. The atmosphere is fantastic (especially the patio) and the food is top notch. There aren't many choices in Saint Louis when it comes to seafood besides boring chain restaurants and a few medicore Asian restaurants. I'd say in saint louis this is by far the best place to grab some seafood or come by to have a beer on the lovely patio!

I think it is safe to say that you are our first review from S. Korea! Thank you for the very kind review. We have worked very hard during the last 5 to 10 years to improve our selection and preparation of seafood and it is great to see that we are having some success in that area. Your review has brought a smile to all of our faces and we thank you again. John

“incredible Bar food and atmosphere!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

I took my 15 year old to the World Series and a friend recommended Broadway and the Bellhop at the Hyatt echoed the recommendation. It was well worth it!! I am from Alabama and have been to New Orleans a lot and have great Cajun places where I live. Broadway has incredible Cajun food!!!

We had the Medley of Baked Oysters, Calamari, Gumbo, BBQ Shrimp and my son had the Fried Lobster Roll. It was all really good!! The BBQ Shrimp is a must order. Very creamy sauce that was delicious and unique.

There was so much on the menu it was hard to decide. Wish I could have had the Muffaletta sandwich, but the bite of lobster roll i had was great as well.

It is a neat place with a ton of atmosphere. We also saw 2 MLB players my son recognized and who are on ESPN now.

Very happy you and your son got to make a trip to the World Series and enjoyed your stop at BOB. Reminds me of a trip I made with my son at about the same age to Detroit to see old Tiger Stadium during its last year of use. As a frequent visitor to New Orleans, your opinion means a lot to us and we are glad to read that you enjoyed everything. Don't be a stranger. Missouri is now SEC country so we hope to see you again soon. John

“Perfect Dive Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Only a block or two from Busch Stadium and it was a great find. A friend told me to try it and he was spot on. Had the Crawfish Enchiladas and Crawfish Mona. Both were spot on. Highly recommend.

Thank you for the great review. Columbia isn't far away. We would be happy to see you back again when there is not a game so you can experience some of our seafood specials that are not on the menu but heck, we will be happy to see you anytime! John

“Best little place for lunch in the city ”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
