Awesome Atmosphere!!!! – I'll be honest....The food was alright, along with the waitstaff, but the sports party scene was everything and then some. It's not a "family" restaurant because it's too loud and most everyone is there for one reason...SIP SIP. They're HUGE Cardinal fans! If your looking for atmosphere and fellow redbird fans to cheer with, It's the place to be!
Don't Waste Time or Cash Here - – Don't bother!!!! If you are dying to see the sports memorabilia hanging on the walls, go in for a beer. At least it beer is reliable; boring, but reliable. Just be prepared to pay top dollar. Guess Ozzie got his beer prices from the stadium. It's Budweiser for pete's sake! We aren't talking about a complex, crafted brew! Seriously, St. Louis has far too many GREAT restaurants and bars to waste time and money here. The food is worse than uninspired. It is bloody awful. The service is barely adequate, the bar is poorly stocked (didn't even have the fixings for a "signature" drink advertised on the menu). If you are coming here from out of town, don't waste a stop here. If you live in St. Louis, come on! You KNOW better!
Avoid at all cost!!!!!!!!!!! – Last Visit:August 2006We were in St. Louuis for softball tournament. They sent girls to the games to pass out coupons, so we went. Atmosphere(sports) was great. Service was the worst. After 2 days of getting slow service, then receiving everything(soup,salad, appetizers, meal) piled on the table at the same time, we actually went back a third day(it was adjacent to our hotel). We specifically requested that we receive our meals with some order. It was actually worse. When we complained to the manager, all did was not charge me(1 of 25 people)for my meal. Which, considering I never received it, was not much consideration. I've met Ozzie Smith, and I believe he'd be very disappointed to know what is going on.
STAR-STUDDED – OK, I'VE NEVER ACTUALLY ATE THERE BUT, ONE NIGHT WE WERE PARTYING AT WESTPORT PLAZA AND WENT INTO OZZIE'S FOR A FEW DRINKS AND RAN INTO OZZIE, CHARLES OAKLEY AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT MICHAEL F-ING JORDAN. NOW OZZIE MAY NOT LIVE THERE, BUT HE SHOWS UP WITH STYLE.
Local baseball hero Ozzie Smith owns the joint, but it's not all beer and hot dogs. – The Scene
Cardinals fans remember Ozzie Smith as the backflipping shortstop who led the Redbirds to victory in the 1982 World Series. Since his restaurant was conceived as a sporting establishment (satellite dishes beam in games from around the world), expect to encounter fanatics yelling and hooting. Cardinals diehards and Redbird memorabilia crowd the place, providing in-your-face trivia and testing your genuine passion for the game. Arrive early, order the nightly special, sit back and enjoy the game.
Appetizers and entrees run the gamut from burgers and sandwiches to Mexican plates and ribs. There's also a fully stocked bar with a dozen beers on tap.
Best Sports Bar – I've spent many of a Sunday afternoons watching football on their numerous televisions. This si one of the best sports bars in St Louis due mostly to the owner (hall of hame shortstop-Ozzie Smith). Great menu, everything from burgers to BIG steaks. The attractive wait staff is always eager to take your order and make sure everything is perfect. Ozzie hit a homerun with his sport's bar. Don't expect to see Ozzie hanging out, but don't be suprised if he strolls to sign some autographs.
Ozzies? – Ozzies does not even feel like a St. Louis bar. It's in a shopping plaza for christs sake. And as far as being the best place to watch the game... not even close. What about Patty O's? DB? Hotshots? plus many more that have much more character, better value, and aren't in the county. Why not start listing St. Charles bars? Why? Because they aren't in St. Louis and neither is Ozzies.
Best in Town - Not – Everyone who had gone to Ozzie's before me has had a good opinion ot it, I don't. when I went there, what we didn't get was any enthusiatic staff to serve us any beer. The Titans and Steelers game was bieng shown via a projector on a screen which was washed out due to the sunlight coming in through the wide open windows. When we did get any service, our waitress was enthusiatic about only one thing- to get us to move out of chairs during the 4th quarter so that she could sit some other diners in our place, sure all we did is put with some bad service, some decent beer - a very limited selection though. They get better bar managers and servers. Down to earth clientele. Conclusion - Service terrible. Not a good place to watch football games. Limited selection. Good crowd.
Great Service – Great service, great food! We were there the last weekend in October. On a Saturday afternoon, with a big crowd, our server was fantastic! I'm not sure why Ozzie's is ranked low in service because based on our experience, we'll be back!
Baseball at its worst – I do understand that this boring sport called baseball is loveed in St. Louis, but this is not nationally worthy of being on such a great list. The food was cold and the service was slow. The only things on the wall were Ozzie pictures. If you want a good sports bar in St. Louis that is close to the games, not the suburbs. Go to Jaques in the Shereton downtown. Now that is a sports bar!
