Slow service and poor food from my last visit has forced me to change rating. The food was terrible, looked awful and just didn't taste as good as it used to. Service was very lackluster and slow. Some of my friends went for Easter brunch and it was just awful. Looked like a bunch of chickens with heads cut off... More

I returned to the Tiger Hotel and its restaurant, Glenn's Café, for a second annual visit to an organization in which I'm active at Missouri University, and I found Glenn's much more to my taste than a year ago. At dinner, I truly enjoyed the deviled eggs, the warm cornbread with fresh butter (--don't miss this winner!), and the stuffed... More

Well maybe it's just because Columbia has so many good restaurants, but I think this one is a waste of your time (and money). It's certainly not a BAD place to eat but I've had about 4 meals there and none of them were, in my opinion, worth the money (and it's not really expensive LOL).

This place is reliably good. Nice service, kind of a limited menu but the regular things on it don't really need improvement. Awesome spot for lunch or dinner.

This restaurant was right next to our hotel, so we gave it a try. Very nice atmosphere, pretty decor. I ordered a scrambled egg dish that had vegetables and cheese that came with potatoes. The potatoes were absolutely delicious! Unfortunately my diet plan would not agree, so I forced myself to eat just a couple. I would definitely go back!

Was able to get an outdoor table which was a really nice. Has a great, diverse menu. I liked everything, though I thought the blacken redfish was a bit salty, and service rushed. But would come back anytime and keep trying the interesting dishes.

I just love the southern style food with the Creole flair. The jaymbalaya is the best I have ever had. They have some of the freshest oysters I've ever had in Missouri.

This place gets cajun/creole cooking! Jambalaya and it is right off of Bourbon Street. Super service. Gumbo. Adult beverages. Great dining experience.
