We were looking for something different before the Cher concert. Decided to give this place a go. Highly recommend! It was so good! The only complaint that I really had about this place was the parking... otherwise the food was spot on.

The food is great. It is a little off the beaten path and definitely not fancy, bit oh it is so worth the visit. The seafood is fresh and the service is friendly.

This place was super busy, so we were told it would be about an hour wait for 5 of us. We waited at the bar outside and thoroughly enjoyed the live music and overall atmosphere. It was so much fun, my family actually wanted to come hang out later just for drinks.
It didn’t actually take an hour to seat us and I loved how they take your cell number and call you when your table is ready. Our server was very attentive and helpful. Finally, if that wasn’t enough, the food was AMAZING!
You must order the lobster poboy (I typically think poboys are too much bread but this one had a ton of crab meat and was perfect)!
Another must is the crawfish enchiladas. SO GOOD!
Finally, we ordered all types of oysters... all great, but we loved the spinach and raw ones the most.
Will absolutely go here again if we make it back to St. Louis!!

Visited Broadway Oyster Bar for the first time during a recent trip to St Louis. When we first walked in we almost turned around and walked out. I'm glad we stayed. The food was fabulous - from the alligator sausage and shrimp cheesecake to the chicken tchoupitoulas. And of course the selection of beer helped wash everything down. After supper we moved out to the patio where a local pickup band were serving up some hot music.

A great evening! I'd highly recommend the Broadway Oyster Bar in St Louis!

Thank you for coming to BOB and for seeing past our purposeful “Louisiana Fish Shack” exterior and decor to enjoy a great experience with us. We are also glad you stayed! Thank you for writing that you found our food to be “fabulous” and our local and Louisiana Craft Beer selection to be more than adequate to accompany your meal. Many thanks for recommending BOB to others for our food, craft beers and live music. We hope to see you again as well. John
