Been there many times and it's always busy for a reason. Friendly staff and reasonable priced drinks that aren't all watered down. The restraunt is great too. The prime rib is always a good choice. But actually you won't go wrong with anything on the menu. The crowd is beyond the ""twinky"" stage so the attitude is more mature. Don't get me wrong....preppy, suits, levi's, ""as U are"",, leather....I've seen them all at Clems. Women too. All are welcome there. The bar looks good too. The place isn't a ""dive"". Clean for a bar. Nice patio too. They close earlier than most bars because of being in Soulard neighborhood.
