Diner Reviews
  • "It was a rainy Wed night and not busy. 1st, the waiter was not welcoming, a bit curt, read a script. I have been to restaurants in St. Louis with outstanding staff, this was a disappointment. One should not have to ask for water refills in a restaurant of this type. Then having to raise my hand with the check and credit card after waiting too long for a pickup was another frustration. Food wise, I had tuna with soy glaze and risotto. Tuna was good, risotto was tasty, but soy glaze tasted like a mix of soy sauce and Russian dressing--too sweet. My friend's petite filet actually was pretty big and tasted great, but had a tendon in it that one hopes never to find in a filet. The sazerac was fantastic! I will return for drinks."

  • "Our waiter was excellent. The bartended Eric created personal bourbon flights for us based on out taste and preference. Food was good. Steaks were cooked as ordered. I would recommend a visit here."

  • "Appetizer was fantastic (shrimp and grits). Rest of our food was good, nothing spectacular. Their timing was horrible. Salads came out before appetizer. Food came out while we were still eating salads. Whole process felt rushed. They need to work on that. It was our anniversary dinner and after waiting about 20 minutes to order we had paid and left less than an hour after our reservation time."

  • "We went with another couple, to celebrate an anniversary. Staff could not have been nicer, the drink menu is delightful and the food was delicious. The ability to pair excellent food in a non-pretentious setting was unique and special. Cannot wait to visit again!"

  • "Although we were disappointed they were out of several bourbon selections, the oysters, flank steak and rib eye were excellent. Very good food-- the portions are large and you might want to share."

  • "On the three occasions I have been to this restaurant, one was outstanding. The menu is fun, the drinks interesting, but sometimes the food is not as fresh as it could be. My salad was a little wilted, salmon a little over-cooked. The location is great for people watching and the staff is wonderful. I am going to give it another try."

  • "My wife and I had brunch at GWH to celebrate her birthday Sunday, 8/10. I made a reservation at 1130am for 2 but didn't really need one - the patio was busy because it was a nice day but the dining room wasn't crowded at all. Service was very prompt - we were early for our reservation but were seated immediately. We had a window table allowing us to people watch (busy street in an city neighborhood). Our server came quickly and was very polite and checked in on us frequently to make sure we had what we needed. Great food - she had the slinger, I had the chorizo hash - we both had the "Whiskey in the Morning". DELISH! Definitely recommending to others, already have plans to come back with friends."

  • "There are lots of great whiskeys to choose from, as well as some great whiskey cocktails. But what keeps me coming back is the delicious, inventive and diverse menu. I've eaten brunch, lunch and dinner here and not had a bad dish in the lot. All delicious, and served by attentive but not overbearing waitstaff."

  • "We have now visited the Gamlin Whiskey House several times. Each time, we see a range of menu items we would still like to try. We have enjoyed every visit, and we look forward to going back to sample even more items. One of the best outdoor settings in St. Louis for watching a wide range of people and enjoying a cool summer night."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "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)."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"
