Oh, my, what a meal we had! The Shrimp & Grits were amazing, as were the Char-Grilled Oysters! Truly amazing! We also tried the Jambalaya, Gumbo, and Red Beans and Rice -- they were good, but not great. This restaurant was almost reason enough to return to St. Louis!

The bartender at our hotel recommended this place, so my friend and I decided to go. The place is old and looks like a dive, but it is a real gem. One look at the menu and I couldn't decide what I wanted. I needed one of everything, but that wasn't going to happen. I've only had savory cheesecake one... More

I come here whenever I get a chance. Their voodoo shrimp is phenomenal and their lobster po'boy is top notch. They also have great gator bites and alligator cheesecake. My husband loves the gumbo and red beans and rice. Expect to wait a while on weekends! Fun atmosphere and close to games! Enjoy!

Have been here several times. Always have had a delicious meal. Stay late on weekends for live music. Feels like you're at a beach side restaurant in the middle of St. Louis.

Fests are usually pretty crowded but well worth the food. Plenty of space to hang out and listen to live music while you wait for your table. I've been going to their festivals for a few years and have always had a great time.

This is my favorite restaurant. The muffaletta sandwich will beat the socks off nolas for sure. We've brought kids before, but couples is best.

If you love the food, music and culture of New Orleans this is the best place in the area. Always special dishes to try and affordable prices. Lots of fun.

BOB is a casual bar and restaurant with great music. The outside area is popping in nice weather. The staff is friendly. It's nice to have a "local" spot within walking distance of downtown.

We are happy to welcome you to the world of fresh oysters! We serve both Gulf and Blue Point oysters only because we value freshness over variety and limiting what we sell helps us to achieve that goal. We are glad to read that you found our food to be delicious, we thank you for the visit and the review... More
