Love to stop by when we’re in St Louis. It’s right downtown by the Stadium. Oysters are great. If oysters aren’t your thing, there’s plenty of others items to choose from. Has a New Orleans feel. Beads and other New Orleans items decorate the place....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.
