Well maybe it's just because Columbia has so many good restaurants, but I think this one is a waste of your time (and money). It's certainly not a BAD place to eat but I've had about 4 meals there and none of them were, in my opinion, worth the money (and it's not really expensive LOL).

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.

Had a great time at Glenn's and the grand kids loved the Main Contain Nuts. 8 adults we ordered somewhat all different items and the fun started we shared portions with each other. Really had a great time and one of daughter's ask that we go back for birthday celebration she liked the Blackened Salmon. And will be back in... More

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.
