Since 1937, once nestled in the middle of cornfields stands the Smokehouse Market. An unpretentious structure, reminiscent of its days as the market for the surrounding Chesterfield area. The store now houses one of St. Louis's most celebrated restaurants, Annie Gunn's. Within its walls, Chef Lou Rook, III works his magic, creating irresistible cuisine with a sophisticated country life accent. In keeping with the concept of "Foods and wines inspired by the richness of country life", Chef Rook uses the best ingredients and the traditions that are most appropriate to them and imbues them with his own talented creative spin within the rhythm of the seasons. Annie Gunn's boasts an award-winning wine list as well.

We were seated in a plastic enclosed patio area, which might be nice in the summer, but was drab at our visit. They also tried to seat our party of 4 at a table that would accommodate 8 people, we asked for another table and after checking a suitable tabled was offered. The steaks were very good but not the best I've had this week. We had the feeling the staff felt they were doing us a favor to serve us.

Annie Gunns is a special experience! The food is sublime and always fresh. The chef will prepare your dish to your needs which is wonderful! There is a great selection of entrees with such fresh ingredients. The ambiance is with perfect lighting and the bar area is very nice. The service is always excellent with friendly yet very professional attitude. My favorite restaurant in St Louis for sure.

My favorite restaurant. Wonderful service. Took my sis from out of town for her bday. Unfortunately her tenderloin sandwich first came overcooked. When it came back it was cooked correctly but too tough to chew.

Moving out of State and one more steak dinner at Annie Gunn's was a must before we leave. Service was outstanding as usual. Everything from the smoke shrimp and crab cake appetizer to the bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream. Strip steak was cooked perfect.

We arrived and our table was ready. Our server was attentive and delightful. The food was amazing. We asked for an appetizer not on the menu (fried green tomatoes!) The kitchen met our request with a delicious sauce to accompany. The potato soup lived up to its “incredible” name. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I have to say the lamb chops were the best I’ve ever had.
Our meal was complete with a complementary large slice of warm apple pie and ice cream to celebrate our guests’ 50th Anniversary.
We are from out of state but we will definitely return and I will most likely order lamb chops again.

Had a wonderful birthday meal, everything met the high level of excellence that we’ve come to expect from Annie’s, from the food to the service. It was especially nice since it was our first time back in well over a year due to the pandemic. All around another great dinner experience.

Annie Gunns is not an inexpensive dining experience. However, if you are seeking an excellent meal in a confortable, casual setting with comfortable ambiance, a diverse menu guaranteed to appeal to everyone, an extensive wine menu, and excellent cocktails, Annie Gunns is the restaurant to dine at for an always memorable experience. We love it and will always return.

The oyster special was divine. The filet was cooked perfectly and delicious. I was a little surprised that there were only two small lamb chops, but the sauce was spectacular. Our overall experience was incredible thanks to our server Michelle. She is a gem!!! The manager also made our experience extra special by stopping by to check on us twice.
