The food the service and the band were top notch! All Roostered Up played with only one break. Oysters were fresh and delicious. Go there, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for "stumbling in" to BOB recently. Usually we see guests stumbling OUT, (Liquor control, if you are reading our reviews and my responses, that is just a joke). We are delighted to read that you think we have a "quirky but cool decor" and some "great food". Very glad you found the Oyster PO Boy to be "yummy". We... More

My husband and I have been here a few times. The food is always good and authentic New Orleans. The atmosphere is fun. It is NOT fancy, so casual attire is fine. Decor is interesting. Staff is friendly. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a New Orleans food fix.

Yea, just do it! Thank you for coming to BOB and for the terrific review. We are delighted that you enjoy our atmosphere and food and I am sure an occasional craft beer or signature cocktail! The Alligator Sausage and Shrimp cheesecake is based on a recipe that we got from Jack at Jaques-Imo's in NOLA several years ago. If... More

You are correct, our guests always seem to have a good time with our food, drink, live music and friendly service. As a review of BOB described us years ago, "one of St. Louis's most beloved party palaces for over 30 years". Our guests do know how to party with us! Thanks for the visit and the great review. We...

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.
