Who is in the mood for some Cajun cooking? This girl! I love this place! Great music & awesome food...always a good time
This place is appreciated by a special type of crowd: friendly, relaxed and fun. Be prepared to meet and make new friends once the evening band begins....because noone hesitates to say 'hey, mind if i sit here?" when there is an empty seat at your table. Non pretentious.

Very Scary. A person writes a negative review on here, and someone has to remark about it like it shouldn't have happened. It happened to us too. Our party tried to park on the back lot for dinner, but they had a chain across it-and wouldn't permit us to park there-even though we had called and said we were coming. They told us the girl that we spoke to on the phone ( who agreed to try to help us get a table when we got there ) ""didn't work there anymore""...well she worked there a day before when we called, so she must have left in a big hurry...anyway...the smoke from the outdoor cooking kept getting in our eyes...the wind kept blowing it in our faces...oh, and we paid $10 to park by the way..after we said we were coming the next day and specifically inquired about parking and were told it was free....Of course I completely expect a fan of the place to remark on how ""Cool"" the place is...well it was not for us-so we cannot write a positive review..we have to tell it like it is

Ive been a fan of BOB forever. But, if Dan is not behind the bar, find another bar! The food is wonderful. I hate reading the one bad review posted.I have never seen them charge a parking fee (sure you at the right park lot? )- I have felt, from my observations, that during dinner time, they could benefit with a hospitality person...going to the tables, making sure everyone happy... sharon

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We called ahead to see what the parking situation was and they told us the restaurant has a private parking area for patrons and street parking if that was full. When we got there, there was a $10 charge to park in their lot (and no available street parking due to a ball game). I personally was very excited to get a Muffuletta which is listed on their website on their menu. I'm not big on Cajun food, so this really was the only thing I wanted to get from there. It was my birthday so we had a party of 6 and needed a minute to look at the menu. The waitress came back to our table several times and never mentioned anything that they didn't have. When we tried to order Muffulettas, we were then informed that they didn't have the bread so they couldn't make them. I asked the waitress if we could have one on a different kind of bread, she went to check and came back telling me they now had none of the ingredients needed to make a Muffuletta. We decided to leave since it was my birthday and I didn't like anything else on the menu. Our drinks (that we had ordered as soon as we came in) cost us $18. So we spent a total of $48 to spend a few minutes in their restaurant and didn't even get to eat the food. The owner (who was standing 10 feet away from our table) didn't think it was neccessary to come over and apologize himself....he sent the waitress over with a very condescending ""apology"" stating that they are a family owned business and they are more busy than usual (there were MANY empty tables around us at lunch time) and therefore couldn't be prepared to have enough food. Not to mention the fact that they have been around for at least a decade because their website has reviews from 1999. They should be prepared for the large baseball crowds as this is a standard in St. Louis. And they should be prepared for familys to come out to eat on Sundays. I thought they were very rude and not willing to even try to please their customers. They said they are ""constantly trying to adjust to the new crowds so they can do better for the next time we come in"". Well I'm sorry but....I spent $48 and didn't even get to have food!!! No way am I ever stepping foot in this place again!

The crawfish bisque was probably the most authentic I've had and though I prefer catfish with a cornmeal (not flour) it was still very good. overall, I think it was very good food. the real test of a cajun restuarant is the gumbo and etoufee, but I will be back to try that. repeat customer!
outside seating wasnt that comfortable, but thats part of the charm of eating bayou food. sometimes the smell of the city will get to you, but nothing that can not be overlooked.
