  • "Anytime I'm in the CWE this is a must stop. Best cocktails in town!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We came here with high expectations. We were sat in an empty dining room, décor is barren, and other patrons said the same after us and asked to be sat elsewhere. The waitress explained they were a 'Steak restaurant with a whiskey theme' . We had a tasty appetizer (3 pigs?), and a yummy cocktail (Peachy keen), but when we ordered the special "Ribeye with a tomato mushroom sauce", we had a tough fatty steak hidden under too much sauce, with too much pepper. The most shocking part was the bill - the "Special' was $50 (not given in advance)! When all entrees were only $25-35.it was definitely NOT worth it. I would probably return for the cocktails and appetizers, but there are much better steak restaurants in town (801 and Annie Gunns)"

  • "Great food and great service, but we ordered a bottle of Conn Creek Anthology Cabernet Sauvignon and it was served very warm, probably 76-78F. Our waiter was more than willing to chill the bottle and bring it to a more drinkable temperature but it should never be served that warm."

  • "Had two great drinks but both my wife and my meals were just okay. We decided if we were to return it would just be for drinks and appetizers or deaserts."

  • "We came here for a birthday special, being the birthday boy loves whiskey. Great selection of whiskey and wine!! Our waiter was awesome!! Very knowledgeable, energetic, helpful and kind (Justin). Being a foodie, we were disappointed with our dinner. It was not the best I have had and working in the restaurant business you might just think I am complaining. Our dinners lacked flavor in some aspect and for the price, it just wasn't worthy of it. However, the deep fried cookie was awesome. So if we do come back it would be for dessert and drinks most likely."

  • "Gamlin house has a good list of cocktails and whiskeys as expected. The food was good, but not nearly at the level I expect for the price. I thought this would be a good place to try, and it was nice. It is a great place for a couple drinks to start or end a night, but if you want a steak, stick to places like Al's or Sam's (Similar cost and way better product)."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Great food, great service but a little pricey! Our waiter did an excellent job! The steaks were amazing! Cooked to perfection and tender! Great place for out of town guests or a group dinner!"

  • "We celebrated our1st Anniversary at Gamlin's. We are both Bourbon fans so this place suits our tastes. This was our second time eating here, and both times we have had great food. One day I may have room for dessert, but so far the portions have done me in before I get to the final course! They have definitely given us a great place to go for food and drinks."

  • "Gamlin Whiskey House is a beautiful fine dining resteraunt. I attended on the 4Th of July and I could not have picked a better place. The food is EXCELLENT!!! and the atmosphere is settling but also electric. I especially would like to thank "Julie" our waitress for her beautiful personality and extensive knowledge of every food item on the menu...(thanks for the recommendations Julie). I have decided to make this my regular and only fine dining experience in the C.W.E. and since its right in my neighborhood that makes it even better. If you haven't been to this place your missing a real treat. Great service...Great Food...Great and kind staff. Thnx!!! Gamlin Whiskey House I look forward to seeing you again real soon."

  • "Great outdoor space and selection of alcoholic beverages, but the food was a little too eclectic for a return visit anytime soon. Service was outstanding though."

  • "Went w/ friends on Saturday night...crab cakes were small but excellent, the Scallop Ceviche was unique w/ excellent flavor...all four entrees were thoroughly enjoyed and the Bourbon/ Whiskey selection was great except they were out of stock on a couple that I wanted...overall a fun and highly recommended experience"

  • "What fun! They have a whiskey sommelier who is not only knowledgable and creative but fun. He made us 3 different versions of Manhattans that were all good in their own ways. The John's Manhattan was excellent and I would recommend trying it if you want to get adventurous. The food was very good. We had the evening's specials: New York strip with blue potatoes and a lovely sauce with shrimp in it. The lamb shank with corn risotto was perfect and the off the menu filet was very good. Save yourself for dessert. The Deep Fried Oreo with ice cream and the Sticky Toffee pudding were sooooo good. We were full after our meal and over the top when we HAD to finish dessert. It was that good. Truly wonderful service. Great evening."

  • "A casual dining experience and the food was delicious. My wife & I had an appetizer, an entree each and shared a dessert. Our waiter was very helpful with suggestions. We had shrimp & grits for the appetizer - excellent. I had the 10 oz. patio steak and my wife had the 8 0z. Tete de filet. Both were ample sized portions and cooked to perfection. I would recommend to others, however, it is a little pricey. I would go back to try other entrées. The whiskey drinks we tried from the menu were very good too."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The food and service were outstanding here—we shared a great rib-eye steak—and it's also a learning experience for those not conversant with the whiskeys of the world. You certainly don't need to drink to enjoy this restaurant, but we did, and the server's recommendations were spot on. A great find in the Central West End."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Server was awesome! Very friendly and people orientated."

  • "Food wasn't hot, service wasn't good - creamer for coffee spoiled. This was not a good experience."

  • "My husband and I love everything about this restaurant. An absolute gem for CWE and St. Louis. The food, drinks, location, and service were all excellent. We have a new favorite spot. Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We enjoyed sitting on the patio and they have a nice drink menu. Our waiter was unfriendly and cold. The tuna was good but my steak came out cold and had to be returned. I would come back for drinks but skip the food."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Gamlin' Whiskey. And this experience was just as good as the first one. We sat outside on an absolutely gorgeous June evening. The CWE was bustling with people and enhanced the outdoor experience. The food was delicious. Our dining companions had the salmon and the steak. Each was done as requested and they both loved their dinners. We each had the seared tuna. Absolutely delicious. The tuna sit so top of a mound of creamy delicious risotto. The tuna was seared to perfection and seasoned with a delicious sauce of soy and other citrus. I don't think you could go wrong with any dish at Gamlin'. We didn't have dessert but the choices looked tempting. The drink selection was very interesting and tasty."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The entrees were just enough different that it approached unique in style. The portions were large and provided dinner the following evening. The wine was good, but overpriced at $14 for what looked to be less than a 4 ounce pour."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "This is one of my favorite little areas in St. Louis and we were so excited to try this place on our anniversary as my husband loves whiskey and we had read such high reviews. The service, drinks, and food were all stellar. We each had a whiskey cocktail and 4 different apps. We left plenty full and I couldn't even pick a favorite all the apps were so good but I highly recommend the fried green beans! I was also thrilled to see my favorite Kim Crawford wine on the menu. Excellent ambience for a date night!"

  • "We visited for the first time for lunch to celebrate an office birthday. No one had been to Gamlin before, but I know that I'll be back to try dinner soon! The food was great, our waiter was the best, and the cocktails were wonderful. Add Gamlin to my list of favorites!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Excellent cocktails. Whiskey flight plenty to share. Food outstanding! Fun!"

  • "We had a reservation for four and although we were about 5 minutes late, we were promptly seated. The menu provided enough variety to please every diner. The drinks and food were wonderful but the service is what made the evening special."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "I had the patio steak - incredible! My husband had the seafood pasta and loved his too. We're not whiskey drinkers, but the drink menu is expansive and offers all other types of alcohol. We wrapped things up with desert.. Creme brûlée and a crustless cheesecake. Superb! The portions of everything we had were substantial. My husband is a big eater and hates when I take him to "fru-fru" restaraunts that serves miniature portions. You won't get that at Gamlin's. The amount of food was just right!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The food was very good and the drink lists was great for bourbon and whiskey drinkers."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Two couples, four different dishes, all great. I had a couple old fashioneds and they were great too. Table space was the only problem."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "we were overall pleased. However I specifically asked for my steak to be very pink in the middle (I usually order medium) it was well done. That was disappointing. Waitress offered to get new steak but I didn't want to wait. "

  • "Upon entering Gamlin Whiskey House on Mom's Day, our group's ladies were greeted by smiles and mimosas! The service was attentive, yet casual, which was perfect. The menu choices include both sharable "For the Table" items and individual options. Our table enjoyed everything.... the omelet, biscuits and gravy, bacon, Eggs Benedict and more. We'll be back again for brunch!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Great food, interesting drinks, and big portions. I can usually eat a reasonable amount and probably ate less than half. Lamb dishes are worth giving a shot. Very tasty. Great selection of drinks -- the usual fair of wines and beers, but a broad selection of cocktails and whiskeys. Enjoy!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Not the best sandwiches. The bread was kind of stale and it was just uninspiring."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "I tried Gamlin a few times after it opened and was always disappointed in the food. The drinks, the service and the ambiance were stellar. But the food was not as good as what I expected. That has changed! I went for brunch this weekend and was thrilled with my meal. The brunch menu was inventive and had something for everyone. Bottomless mimosas are a nice touch too! The shrimp and grits were a standout! I will definitely be back for dinner soon! "

  • "We loved the food and the service was wonderful! However, we had reservations which to me means an appropriate table for four. Instead we were seated in the last "new" room next to a long table set up for ten. After we ordered our drinks a bachelorette party arrived. The room is not insulated for loud noises and the girls were very loud at first. They eventually quieted and we had a nice dinner. "

  • "So i have tried this restaurant twice now. The first time the service wasn't great (waited almost 45 mins for drinks) and the food was ok but nothing great. I figured i would give it another try since it was new and maybe they were jsut working out the kinks. Unfortunately it was not the case. I had the same experience the 2nd time. The food was just ok and the service was not great."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Our server was great and the food came out fast with a group of six. The tuna entree and oyster appetizer were excellent. We were disappointed with our dessert so they gave us something different at no charge. The whiskey selection was great, but the wines were a bit overpriced. Fun atmosphere with unique details. Would definitely recommend!"
