Broadway Oyster Bar

The Broadway Oyster Bar is a locally owned and operated establishment and has been for over 35 years. The Oyster Bar is widely regarded as the premier New Orleans' style restaurant, bar and music venue in the Midwest. BOB, as it is affectionately known by its many fans and friends, is housed in a building that was built in the mid 1840's and is one of the oldest buildings still in daily use within the city of St. Louis. During its colorful history, our building has had many functions including a family home, a boarding house, a Chinese laundry, a record store and a bordello to name a few. These walls have heard and seen it all. Some people feel that the building is haunted by spirits who, occasionally late at night, play good hearted jokes on the staff such as doors suddenly opening or closing or lights going on or off as if by magic. Then again, it just could be because the building is over 170 years old. However, our historic building has just gone through a renovation so we now have two outdoor patios that are covered and heated during cold or rainy weather and an expanded kitchen to better serve you. Our food has won numerous awards and readers' polls for excellence and features some of the most sustainable seafood available such as fresh Gulf and Blue Point oysters, Louisiana crawfish and shrimp, Prince Edward Island mussels, scallops and crabs. Our Cajun and Creole dishes are our versions of many of the traditional Louisiana favorites. If you love New Orleans, you will feel right at home at BOB. BOB offers live music twice a day every night of the week except on Friday when we feature one act for the evening. We present the best local and national touring acts representing a variety of musical genres such as rock, reggae, bluegrass, blues, funk, R&B, roots, and jam, and weshowcase a wide variety of bands visiting from New Orleans. The live music is free up to 8 times per a week. However, for some of the more popular and well known acts, we do charge a cover which typically goes to the bands in order to keep attracting them to the BOB. Broadway Oyster Bar has been referred to by many as a staple of St. Louis and was recently honored by the St. Louis Chapter of the Missouri Restaurant Association as the 2015 Restaurant of the Year. BOB is a great choice for a relaxing dinner, a celebratory party or an opportunity to dance to a great band. As well known food writer, the late Joe Pollack, once wrote, "There is, quite simply, nothing in St. Louis quite like the Broadway Oyster Bar". That line was written over 30 years ago, but it is as true today as it was then. Welcome to the Broadway Oyster Bar Family.

    Haven't been to 1111 since just after Covid. The food and service were great then, and it's still great. Our server was attentive, but not overwhelming, which is nice. My wife had the Halibut, and I had the Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin. Both were cooked perfectly. We followed that with the Flourless Chocolate Torte. It doesn't get any better than that.

    What a wonderful meal celebrating our kids turning 21! Our waiter Scott was the perfect balance of professional, friendly and attentive while allowing us to enjoy our time together with minimal interruptions. The lobster spaghetti special was one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had. The timing of courses was spot on. As a 30 year restaurant industry veteran, I can be a very tough critic. Well done Charlie Gitto’s!!! Side note, their red sauce is a bit sweet. Just something to be aware of if that is not your preference.

    This was my second time dining at Idol Wolf. It was just as excellent as it was the first time. Great food and service. Enjoyed the ambiance and exploring the art at the 21C Museum hotel before dinner. Short walk to Enterprise Center after to take in a Blues Game. Highly recommend.

    A great, fresh seafood restaurant in St. Louis at Union Station. It is a destination restaurant in my opinion, but try it before or after a trip to the Aquarium or a City SC soccer match. The crab cake appetizer is amazing and the Snapper Hemingway is delicious. The service is great and we were greeted by the manager too. Give them a try.
