I just love the southern style food with the Creole flair. The jaymbalaya is the best I have ever had. They have some of the freshest oysters I've ever had in Missouri.

This place gets cajun/creole cooking! Jambalaya and it is right off of Bourbon Street. Super service. Gumbo. Adult beverages. Great dining experience.

I have now eaten at Glenn's Cafe twice. Lunch and Dinner. Although both meals were excellent, we prefer the lunch menu. Service has been great both visits, it is a cozy place.

We loved Glenn's before and we are glad it's back in town. Love the location at the Tiger Hotel. Great cocktails though they need to update their bar menu. We came in on a frigid night and they were featuring summer cocktails. Wish we'd had the dessert menu to start bc those cocktails like a hot toddy were what we... More

Three of us dined at Glenn's the evening of the Christmas live windows displays. Restaurants were all very busy, with long waits - except Glenn's Cafe. Perhaps this should have been a sign. The food was mediocre at best. The best was my companion's gumbo. Other food was just OK, with the exception of my stuffed mushroom entree, which was... More

Got there for dinner, no wait - sat right down. Got water then waited, and waited, and waited. Finally someone came to take our order. Ordered food and some appetizers. I figured the appetizers would come somewhat quickly bit after about 20 minutes I was done - out. The only good thing is that they didn't charge us for the... More

We went here for Christmas dinner. Excellent choice! We both had their signature steak which was excellent ! They had a dinner special that looked good country ham, scalloped potatoes , green beans, stuffing, and a dessert. Great value!! Drinks were great as well. I had a margarita. I ordered another one and evidently it took longer that it should... More
