Cardinals Nation Ratings and Reviews

We were hugely disappointed to arrive and find that not only was parking not free (as indicated on the menu) but we were not allowed to park on site because it was "sold out," even though only half the parking lot was being used when we arrived early for dinner. There was to be a late-night event, thus we could not park onsite. We were forced to go across the street and pay $9 for parking. I won't return to this place in the evening. If only the website had said there was an event that night when I made the reservation online, I would not have been surprised. I like the place overall, but this was a needless disappointment if only management had been more customer-friendly enough to alert us about the parking situation.

Made reservations at Cardinal Nation before the Cards game. It was my first experience at the restaurant. We arrived early but they were able to go ahead and seat us. We had a coupon for an appitizer. We selected the nachos. It fed four of us! It was great! We all tried a different main course, the food was delicious! Large portions as well. We will be returning to Cardinal Nation!

Was here as a surprise trip for my husband who is a Cardinal's fan. The waitress was great and gave us tips for our visit. The food was great and the wait was minimal. We loved the fact that the restaurant is directly across the street from the ball park.

The food offerings looked appetizing, however, the eggs Benedict should have been thrown away, old and yukky. The chicken crusted entree was less than, a day old or more...sausage links seemed less than fresh.bacon was fatty and stringy..Enjoyed the Bloody Mary bar, pastries, hash browns, omelet to order was most delicious.
Cher, our server, was delightful! Parking was not free due to an EVENT Day???
The package included the Hall of Fame, and Museum, was truly the best most memorable part....WE ARE FOREVER CARDINAL FANS.....

Great place to watch a game or just sit down for some food and chill. Great atmosphere and amazing food and service. No matter how busy they are the service never fails and food comes out in a timely fashion. Always a favorite for my family.
Opening Day Brunch, not as good as last year
Last year (2015) Y98's first opening Day Brunch was with "Fred Bird" and it was awesome, great menu! In fact, it was something my wife and I wanted to add to our annual opening day pilgrimage from South Carolina to celebrate what should be a national holiday, Card's Opening Day. This year was a less impressive menu, no Bloody Mary Bar, and no Fred Bird. I'm sure Y98 and Cardinal Nation tried, but it just missed the bar set by the inaugural year. Bottom Line: Great restaurant, but let's knock it out of the park next year with a real brunch to be envied.
A great venue with over the top service!!
This is the second year we have participated in the Y98 Opening Day Breakfast buffet and it exceeded last years event. The food was excellent and the service was over the top. From the wait staff to the managers everyone was top notch. I highly recommend Cardinals Nation. We will be back!!!
Best Sunday Brunch
We had reservations for 10am, they were ready on time and with a fantastic spread! Everything from the ususal breakfast fair to great prime rib and grilled shrimp. Adding the ballpark food was a great touch. Coupled with unlimited Bloody Marys and Mimosas and the day was complete. Service was exceptional, and everyone was friendly and smiling. Can't wait to do it again.

Our server was awful, but the manager compt us one drink in light of it. We sat and waited for 10 minutes before our server even acknowledged us. She took our drink orders, and we sat for another 10 minutes waiting for beverages. Our food came out before beverages did.
Disappointing Easter brunch
We had eaten at Cardinal Nation previously before a ballgame. The food was fine. Easter brunch was disappointing as some of the food was overcooked (fish) and some undercooked (shrimp). The rest of the items to choose from were ok but nothing to write home about. It was not too busy so getting to the food was easy. An average level of food overall but no worth the price.
Easter Brunch, what a treat!
The Brunch cost included a complimentary alcoholic drink per person and a trip to the Cardinals Hall of Fame. The food was fabulous, there was a great variety of items. Our waitress was upbeat and attentive. While all the tables were full, it was still easy to move around and no long lines for the food.
We had a party of 10 for Easter brunch. The food was great! We were seated immediately when we arrived and given some amazing little donuts to try that were like funnel cakes. I was impressed by the seafood selection, although the crab claws were difficult to eat. The prime rib was delicious and cooked perfectly. The omelet makers were very polite and quick in getting everyone's eggs cooked quickly. My only recommendation would be desserts...there were a fair amount of them, but they weren't spectacular. It would have been nice to see some variety instead of little brownies and 2 bite cupcakes. Note: the parking validation slips didn't work. It took us 15 minutes just to get out of the parking lot because the scanner wasn't accepting them. And the validation only allows for 6.00 off so it was a bit annoying to swipe my credit card for 1.00. Overall, it was delicious and we will be back.
Making the reservation-easy! Adjusting the reservation-easy(friendly gal on the phone)!
Arrival-ignored for a few minutes at counter(nobody seemed to know what they were doing!) As I was the next person to be checked in,(no eye contact yet from anyone) a lady came through the door with her party and the hostess checked her in when I had been standing at the counter being ignored! We got seated at (high tables) wish I would have known that high tables were a possibility-not family/kid friendly(party of 5 kids/4 adults(stools with no backs-very uncomfortable, hard to get in for little ones-never asked by anyone if we needed specific accommodations!) We then sat for approximately 7 minutes with no one greeting us to serve us/take a drink order) we had to stop a "Manager?" to ask for server?! My mom ordered a beer(we were sitting right next to the bar by the way) and she never got it-had to ask the manager for it! Seriously? I asked if the huge, fully stocked bar could make a frozen strawberry daiquiri-no blender! Seriously? I seriously thought we were on a bad episode of Candid Camera! We finally ordered b/c the waitress said the kitchen was taking 30 minutes or more to get orders out. They were busy(Spring Break time, people!) They didn't have a hamburger on the kids menu. What restaurant that makes pretty much anything doesn't have a burger on the kids menu? Appetizers came-pretzels were lacking flavor big time. Chips-stale/spinach artichoke dip-awesome! Food for kids finally came-mediocre at best. I had a french Dip-not bad; nothing to write home about. I am tired of writing-hopefully next time it will be a total 180-if there is a next time. Food at the stadium tastes better.
Brunch at Ballpark
Sunday brunch at St Louis Cardinals' Ballpark Village was plentiful and tasty, with lots of choices and extras! Cost $30 seemed reasonable but proved to more than, considering the included mimosa or other drink and free admission to the Cardinals museum just a few steps away. We got there at 1030, and were seated and started to graze immediately! Place got crowded about 1100, but still short lines for refills. Helpful staff, but they did get busy. Views of ballpark. One complaint ... NCAA tournament in town was "special event" which cancelled the supposed-to-be-free parking; no "validating" or otherwise getting out of it. Overall, the meal was nearly up to the standards of the lamented Adam's Mark sunday brunch of yore.
Great value with Cardinals Hall of Fame admission
If you're a Cardinal’s fan, this is a great place to go for brunch. You have a view into Busch Stadium and the cost of the brunch includes free admission to the Cardinals Hall of Fame (on the same day). There was a nice variety of brunch food and the food was pretty good. Eggs made to order. Make your own Bloody Mary was a fun concept. Service could have been a little more attentive.
I wasn't sure what to expect from their brunch, being that it's Ballpark Village (not a big fan, typically overpriced bar food experience). HOWEVER, Cardinals Nation's brunch was AMAZING and I was pleasantly surprised. While it's a little overpriced for a buffet, the food was hot, fresh and delish and came with an adult beverage and a ticket to enter the Cardinals museum. I highly recommend the Bloody Mary Bar. They had more options than just about any other place in the city! Our server was very attentive and we left fat and happy. My only suggestion would be to offer a price that excluded the museum, as I had been before, and so we did not take advantage of it.
I love ballpark Village I go there a lot. Its our favorite spot. My aunt and I had a great time. The food was good and so was the atmosphere. I have never toured the hall of fame, so that was a bonus. This is our new spot for Sunday Brunch. Oh and the omelette was to die for.
Cardinals Nation needs a home run
With the popularity of Ball Park Village and close proximity to Busch Stadium, the food needs to hit a home run. St. Louis has so many good chefs and food choices, why can't that be part of the deal at BPV? Cardinals Nation is in a great location for a group lunch during the week with very little competition in the area. However I am reluctant to think of it as the food is so mediocre. If items were prepared to a higher quality with fresher ingredients it would match numerous local St. Louis restaurants efforts who are exceling in those areas. Every time I eat at Cardinals Nation I feel as if they are winning business because of the Cardinals connection and not for the food prepared.
we plan to return
we will be going back to this restaurant soon - the price and food was really good and we had excellent servise despite it being busy. The decor was nice and the only thing that could have made it better would be not having to watch golf while you eat in a baseball restaurant.
