Went here just before going to a game. They had some great cocktails. I would recommend trying one of their food specials. We were in somewhat of a hurry and they made sure our food got done quickly. Even though they rushed the food it was still great. Very New Orleansy style food, or at least what I had was.... More

This place is AWESOME! We stopped here after the Zoo visit before our Budweiser AB tour and we are so glad we did. It is a bit "Divey" but the vibe is so awesome and the food really great! I would sit out back in the patio area where the bar is, the bartender there was awesome, and the music... More

We are honored to be your "favorite place in St. Louis". Your equally AWESOME review has so many highlights it is hard to know where to begin. We are a bit "divey" but that is by design because BOB is basically a tribute to all of the great, divey restaurants, bars and music venues of New Orleans, a city that... More

We were invited by our close friends to celebrate their birthday. Eclectic atmosphere. Food was okay. As we were sitting with 3 other couples and their children visiting and talking after our dinner, the hostess in so many words told us that there was a 2 hour wait and they needed our table. Really? Don't plan to go back.

Always a fun place to go before a baseball game. The atmosphere is fun and you can beat the fish tacos and char broiled oysters! Also, they raffle a set of Cardinal's tickets every night before the game and give you free bottled water on your way out. We love it here and will keep coming back!

We were here on a Sunday when they opened at 11 am. We got an outdoor seat right away. It was a beautiful day to sit outside.

We are very pleased that your overall experience at BOB was a good one. I would like to apologize for the late arriving sliders to your table. Sunday mornings before a Cardinal game are the absolute hardest situation for our kitchen to handle because we often go from empty at 11AM to 240 full seats by 12 noon. That is... More
