Midwest Living Review
A good jazz and blues joint should be a bit of a dive, right? That's Broadway Oyster Bar, with a sign on the door that reads "Leave Your Attitude At Home." That about says it all. Broadway Oyster Bar sits along a stretch of Broadway featuring three music venues side by side. It's a bit small but has an outdoor patio where listening to the tunes is all the sweeter on a balmy summer night. The bands keep playing well past midnight. The kitchen is far from a dive, serving up an array of Southern specialties. Start out with oysters on the half shell or an order of fried alligator, then settle into a steaming hot dish of jambalaya, gumbo, or crawfish etoufee or maybe a heaping gulf-oyster grinder sandwich. There is a cover charge.
