The only way to describe the food and service is simply "Outstanding". I had the pleasure of dining at The Drunken Fish at Westport this past weekend and I will become a regular. The night started off with a very pleasant greeting at the hostess stand and again by our waiter once we were seated. The bar was full along with the restaurant throughout our dininig experience. This must say something because as soon as a table was ready to be seated it was with many people still waiting to be seated. Our waiter had a great personality and was able to describe the menu in a way that made want to try something new. His energy level was high as well as his selling abilities. The food ranged from Appetizers to Sashimi and Nigiri Sushi and from Regular to Signature Makimono Rolls, Stir Fry to Fried Rice. The menu had many great items to choose from. After the many suggestions our waiter offered we decided on the Soft Shell Crab Apprtizer which was Soft-Shell Crab lightly battered with a Katsu sauce. Our waiter suggested a variety of wines and we went with the Greg Norman Pinot Noir which complimented the crab very nicely. We then decided to try The Drunken Fish Roll, The White Tiger Roll, and The Starburst Roll. All were outstanding in presentation and in taste which makes you want to go back and try them all. It is not only hard to find good food these day's but it is harder to find a server as dedicated to his craft as our server was Saturday night. I will not only be back but I will certainly tell my friends and family of my experience at The Drunken Fish Westport.
Stumbled upon this place for lunch today. I only ordered soup and salad, but WOW it was great. It definitely is a hole-in-the wall kind of place with a limited menu, but the waitress was superfriendly and the food was excellent. I had a caesar salad and a chicken and rice type of soup. The soup was homemade and INCREDIBLE. I could taste some type of green in it (spinach or mustard) and it was seasoned perfectly. The dressing on the salad also tasted homemade and the anchovies came through nice and clearly which I love. I had a soft drink and made it out of there under $10 after leaving a $2 tip.
Obviously I am a Mizzou fan. So when they play Bar101 Soulard is where I go plenty of big screens and profectors keep the action going. I love the customers and workers, they are real and down to earth. The food is great, I like the froglegs. The patio has a stage and outdoor bar, it's a nice dinner spot before we take the free shuttle to the cards game. We joined a sand volleyball league and they let me bring my puppy, yes they are dog friendly. If there is one downfall, it is when we are dancing outside it is quite a walk to the restrooms inside. This place is huge!
