This place is reliably good. Nice service, kind of a limited menu but the regular things on it don't really need improvement. Awesome spot for lunch or dinner.

This restaurant was right next to our hotel, so we gave it a try. Very nice atmosphere, pretty decor. I ordered a scrambled egg dish that had vegetables and cheese that came with potatoes. The potatoes were absolutely delicious! Unfortunately my diet plan would not agree, so I forced myself to eat just a couple. I would definitely go back!

Was able to get an outdoor table which was a really nice. Has a great, diverse menu. I liked everything, though I thought the blacken redfish was a bit salty, and service rushed. But would come back anytime and keep trying the interesting dishes.

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
