We were using a Groupon, but surprised by the quality of the food. They have local beers on tap. The bisque was amazing. We shared a full muffalata and it was huge. We wouldn't hesitate to go back the next time we're in town.

Everything here was fantastic, including service and atmosphere (if you are into unique dive bars). Almost everything on the menu is relatively spicy, which my husband and I love, but our daughter didn't have too many options. However, with the help of our server, we...More

Had food delivered from here 3 times. Can vouch for the jambalaya, gumbo, etouffee, wings, blackened fish (I had Mahi-Mahi), grilled pear salad, and red beans. Can't wait to try the shrimp and grits and muffaletta. I finally dined in on a windy Sunday night....More

Great little place with charm and character; plus great food. My husband had the sampler platter and I had the lobster po'boy. Both were delicious and spicy! Being just down the street from Busch stadium, it is a great location, too.More

It’s got a hipster vibe but we felt very welcome there. Super fresh oysters. You cannot go wrong with anything. The firecracker shrimp was crisp and spicy. It’s legit NOLA with Crystal sauce on the tables. Definitely worth your time and the bite!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.
