A great place to visit in the afternoon when it's quieter, we are older and the space can be tight and floors crooked. Food is always great, the atmosphere is one of a kind. One of our favorites.More

Great dive bar outside Busch Stadium. We stopped before a Cardinals game. The outdoor bar and patio had a Caribbean feel. Lots of strong drinks with a low rent atmosphere. While we didn't eat, the food sounds amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful.More

We had a party of eleven and we're sat as soon as we walked in. They do not do reservations, but if you call ahead, they will do preferred seating. Give that a shot before just showing us with that many.

I think they are at any time of day, however I agree at night it's probably pretty rowdy.
