We came in with a party of 6 and even though we only waited about 15 minutes, the staff felt bad for our wait and brought us a huge dessert to share. We had no trouble waiting as we were certainly in no rush, but it was a thoughtful gesture and it was absolutely delicious. Everyone we interacted with was a pleasure and our meals were delicious and generous. I will certainly return to this spot whenever in St. Louis.

PERFECT Pre STL Baseball Dining!
Joe Buck's is the perfect place to eat before a STL Cardinal's Baseball Game! It was a perfect STL sports bar & grill atmosphere. The prices were very reasonable.

We visited Joe Buck's before
We visited Joe Buck's before a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game, and on the same night, the St. Louis Blues were playing a playoff hockey game two blocks away. Despite this fact and the very crowded restaurant, the service was fast and efficient. Josh, our server, was attentive and accurate. Drinks were served promptly as was the food. Portions were very large and tasty. Our entire party was highly impressed with the whole experience. We were out in plenty of time to get to the Cardinals' game before the first pitch. It did help that we had reservations. Otherwise, the wait would have been lenghthy for a table. Overall, a wonderful dining experience was provided by Joe Buck's.

Great Food-Great Location
We went to Joe Bucks for lunch prior to a Cardinal ballgame. The food was great and the service was excellent. We had the bar-b-que plate and the lunch size salmon plate. Both were excellent. We were able to park in their lot and walk to the ballgame which is really convenient. We will definately return anytime we are going to a Cardinal game and highly recommend this venue for a good time

Take Me Out to the Ball Game
That is correct, take me out to the ball game but before we go let's stop for dinner and Joe Buck's. It is a fun place, good food, gets you in the mood for baseball as you look at the sea of red clothing dining at the table. You know you will have a good time at Joe's.
5/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first trip to Joe Buck's. We were very pleased with our dinner selections. The prices are very modest and we will definitely be returning to Joe Bucks for future family gatherings.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The menu choices at Joe Buck's should satisfy even the most picky eater. Meat and vegetarian choices are quite good. Even the price point is very acceptable for varying individual. The staff was quite helpful and very knowledgeable about the selections in the menu. Portion size was quite acceptable if not too large. The only complaint I would have is the price of non-alcoholic beverages. A glass of iced tea served in a 10 or 12 ounce plastic cup was $2.30. Granted refills were free, but, that price was unacceptable in my opinion.

Going to a game?
If you're going to a Cardinals game or Blues game, it's a great place to grab dinner before or a drink and appy after. Walking distance to both and they take reservations!
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good place to grab something to eat before the ball game or hockey game. Service was great, food was okay.

BBQ, beer and baseball
Want to grab a bite before a Cardinals home game? Joe Buck's is the place to go. Just two blocks from Busch Stadium. The food is excellent. I'm a pulled pork fan and Joe Buck's is moist and tender. The beer is always ice cold. Friendly service.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dont miss out!!
We've been coming to St. Louis to watch Cardinals games for a few years now and have always talked about going over to Joe Bucks either before or after a game. We finally made it over to the restaurant, besides the games it turned out to be the highlight of our trip. The food and service were excellent, you wont be disappointed. It will be a must stop for us on every trip we make to watch the Cardinals!!

Awesome rib sandwich
The rib sandwhich is delicious! Tender, flavorful, moist and of course messy- the only way a rib sandwhich should be. And the sweet potato fries are the best I've had. Great good wig excellent service !

Wonderful place to have a quality dinner before a Carinal game. Our table had a variety of items from the menu and all would be reccommended to friends and family.

Dinner before the Cards game
Glad we had reservations, this was the busiest place to be before the Cards game. Food took awhile to get to us, so dont plan on a quick in and out dinner. Food was good, had deviled eggs, wings and pulled pork plate.

Good place for food before a game.
I thought the restaurant had a great ambiance. The food was good. Slightly different than what you would find elsewhere. If we get downtown for another game. I would go back.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Snooze you loose
If you go late in the day you run the risk of the BBQ selections being gone and you menu becomes a little limited. Good Food - Good Drinks - Good Time

Excellent Food, So-So Service
The brisket and sauces were top notch. Disapointing that they were already out of pulled pork and turkey at 6:00pm on a Saturday. Would have been nice to know before we looked at the menu or at least before we ordered. Coming by 10 minutes after we ordered to inform us no more pork & turkey is an odd way to operate a restaurant. Waiter was not too swift and had more tables than he could handle despite the restaurant being only half full. Salads came out well after the entrees!?

We enjoy going to Joe Buck's before every Cards game. It really puts us in a good mood. It is a fun place!

Great place to eat before you go to a ball game. Great food and gets you in the mood for the game with the decor.

We got there 30 minutes before the Cardinals game started and were in the stadium by the bottom of the first (we had to walk a little). It was super fast and the food was great.

Great before Cardinals game
We went on Saturday night before the Cardinals game. With a reservation, we were seated right away and service was very good. We each had the pulled pork barbecue plate with side and cornbread. It was great, and just right for before the ball game. And, as the ads say, it was then just a short walk to the ballpark. Would definitely do it again!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great time with great service, food was wonderful! Admosphere was wonderful! A+ expierence!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was in St. Louis to attend a Cardinals game. I noticed a mention of Joe Buck's in a hotel magazine. I was in the mood for ribs so I choose Joe Buck's, partially based on name recognition and on the menu items. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the facility open, roomy, and comfortable. I use a wheelchair and it was easy to move around. I've been to many packed restaurants and had great difficulty. However I was there for ribs and they were great! I also had barbequed deviled eggs; they also were great. I just wish they would sell their barbeque sauces.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
J Bucks is a great place to go before a Cards game or anytime.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place before the Game!
I'm sure Joe Buck's is great no matter what you're doing in St. Louis. We went there for dinner before a baseball game since it was so close to Busch Stadium. The food was really good and the service was also great! Save room for desert!!

In St. Louis, perfect for before-game dinner. Massive portion sizes (we had to carry the leftovers to the park, where they came in handy!). Ok beer menu.

Solid Experience All Around
We were visiting from out of town and walked over from our hotel. The minute we walked in, we were greeted and seated. The service was phenomenal and attentive without being over bearing. Our food was great and arrived promptly. We all had BBQ and it rocked. The atmosphere is a shrine to sports and celebs in St. Louis. Really interesting and the decor is old school steakhouse with a modern flair. We look forward to returning to Joe Buck's when we return to STL.

Had a very enjoyable experience at JBucks before the redbirds victory. Nice atmosphere and good fod.

Food was great, but had to
Food was great, but had to ask multiple time for plates, silverware, and the time it took was very long to get our food, due to the waiter forgot to place our order.

Good Game Night Food.
Great food close to the ball park, friendly staff, plus parking for free!

This place is so convenient to the ballpark, easy and quick. Very well priced, the food was great and great portion sizes. Thoroughly enjoyed and will go back!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fine for pre-game meal
Four of us reserved a table and arrived at 6 pm, before a 7:10 pm Cardinals game. That was enough time, though our server was a little slow bringing the check. She was otherwise very attentive. One of us had a salad, which I would highly recommend: good size and variety. Another had a double meat sandwich with sweet potato fries, also excellent. And another had the portobello mushroom burger, which was good but quite small.

Game Day at Joe Buck's Downtown
This was our latest of several trips to Joe Buck's either before or after a Cardinals game and it was great. We had a party of 4 and the game time was changed due to weather and changing my reservation time was quick and easy online. We arrived a little early and was seated immediately. the food was excellent and the bear cold and the waitress was very attentive. We will go back!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM

I love Jo Buck's! The barbecue, the cake/cheesecake dessert is scrumptious, and the Apple Pie A La Mode drink is to die for. Every time I visit St. Louis, Jo Buck's is a must stop for me!

But I have a reservation
We had a reservation at 11:00 on the day of a Cardinal playoff game, starting at noon, that we had tickets for. Joe Buck's has a private parking lot for customers only. As we circled the lot heading to the entrance, we spotted 5 open spaces. But then at the gate a man stood there saying the lot was full. He calmed the empty spaces were reserved for Julie Buck. I said "but I have a reservation". He again said they were full. I had to leave and try to find another lot nearby, one hour before the Cardinal game. I got in a lot 4 blocks away and walked to Joe Buck's, had lunch (they were not busy at all), left at 11:40 and walked to Busch Stadium. But as we left the restaurant, 50 minutes later, those 5 parking spaces were still empty! Not happy
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the menu choices! Hard to choose. Great wings, great BBQ, great desert. Can't go wrong
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brought an out of town guest here looking for good Missouri Bar-B-Que. Everything was good, ribs were excellent! Highly recommend.

The food and service was amazing,
The food and service was amazing, we were going to the cardinals game and had no problem getting in and getting our food in a very reasonable amount of time! The food itself was great, they really took there time to make excellent BBQ ribs and brisket and it showed. We indulged and had desert and ordered the "big freese" for the two of us which was a big mistake...it tasted absolutely amazing but was so big we couldn't even make a dent! The overall experience was incredible and part of a time in St. Louis that I will never forget. I recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone and I know I will be back!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great location for drinks and dinner when attending a Cardinal game or an event at the Scottrade or Peabody facility. Easy parking, good food, and lots of activity. This corner in downtown is still alive.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose Joe Bucks for its location near the Scottrade center. We were seated exactly on time. Our waiter had a good working knowledge of the menu and knew (without checking) that the bar did not stock the obscure gin my brother wanted. My salmon was cooked perfectly (as was my husbands), our guest loved his bbq. Our dessert (a carrot cake cupcake) left a lot to be desired as what was supposed to be a flavor pocket inside just tasted as if the cupcake was not completely cooked. We should have sent them back. Otherwise, a very nice dining experience. As we left, the place was packed so I suggest reservations.

Great during World Series
I made our reservations in late Sept.- before the end of baseball season. Our reservation was on Game 3 of the World Series, about 30 minutes before 1st pitch. I kept waiting for an email cancelling my reservation. Even after we showed up, I was a little worried they would say "We are sorry, but because of the World Series we can't fit you in." Much to my amazement, we were seated immediately in the full restaurant - even though we were about 5 minutes late for our reservation. I was amazed and impressed. Thank you.
It was definitely a happening place full of Cardinals fans. It was exciting to watch the first few innings amongst the die-hard fans. It was chaotic and loud. The food and service was just okay. I'd give it another shot.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food, fun atmosphere, must try the "freese" dessert!
