Delicious and nice entertainment. This is a great choice for those visiting St. Louis, it is also a locals hangout. Their gumbo is the bomb!

The restaurants serves cajun food and lots of oysters. Very great food, however, very long wait and then once you're seated, you're crammed in with other diners. But highly recommend the food, just don't be in a hurry. :) It's definitely worth trying once.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.
