Wow, this place is very unique, very rustic, but a lot of fun, and great food. Rustic outdoor beer garden also. Service is great, the employees are fun, very fun atmosphere, and the food is GREAT !!!! Prices are fair. This area is close to soulard so will be a little scarey at night. Will definitely return as the food... More

We throughly enjoyed our dinner visit with our adult son and company before a concert downtown. Comfortable atmosphere really nice wait staff. We had Fresh Oysters, alligator and shrimp and it was all terrific. We also enjoyed adult beverages. This is a bar and grill type restaurant and not appropriate for under age family members or children. There wasn't a... More

We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your recent dinner at BOB with your son and other friends. I hope the concert was good as well. As a restaurant as well as a bar and music venue, we can allow children in to eat but we are 21+ after the kitchen closes. Some guests are comfortable bringing kids in,... More

Great creole food. Just like Louisiana! Shrimp & Grits were my favorite and I don't usually like grits! We had the BBQ shrimp app and lobster cheesecake app. They were phenomenal. The sauce on the shrimp was in so delicious, we almost licked the dish. The lobster po boy and the crawfish enchiladas were also great!

Thanks for coming to BOB and for writing an awesome review. We are delighted to read that you found our food to be "delicious" and "just like Louisiana". Our shrimp and grits feature a grit cake that is fried to give the dish a bit of crunch to go along with the shrimp and the sauce. By the way, licking... More

Get here. Now. And be ready to eat some of the best NOLA food outside of NOLA! We had an amazing visit and are still salivating over our selections. We didn't want side dishes coming between us and the featured items, so we ordered appetizers. Chargrilled oysters, raw oysters, naked gator tacos and the amazing gator sausage and shrimp cheescake.... More

We were here on a Sunday afternoon and the wait was about 40 minutes. There is an app which shows how many people are ahead of you and to let you k is when you can be seated. Outdoor seating was especially popular because the day was beautiful. We had walked by Saturday night and the wait then was over... More

Our building is certainly unique. It is actually 3 buildings all put together to form one building plus 2 outdoor patios. The oldest building was built in the early 1840's! As you noted, we get very busy when the weather is good due to our many outdoor seats but most guests still seem to have a great time with us... More

The chargrilled oysters are my favorite thing on the menu. So good we had 3 orders. We also enjoyed the Muffuletta, so creamy, and the lobster PO boy. Their fries are also outstanding. The blue crab cakes are also delicious. I've never had anything I didn't like here. Service was very good. One of my favorite places to eat in... More

Excellent time. A true gem. Great feeling of STL. Food is excellent, ambiance is great. Everything feels good. Drinks are decent. Excellent oysters , fish and Cajun. I had the scallibut, scallop crusted halibut. The halibut was phenomenal however the cheese sauce completely over powered the scallops. -Blogger AM21
