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.

Our waitress was Karen and she was excellent. She was very attentive to my daughter, which we were celebrating her birthday. The food and wine were perfect. The only slight was with the manager, when my daughter ask to speak to him to complement Karen, he was not very polite.

Wanted to try something special for our anniversary and this was a great pick! Wait staff was awesome and the food was great as well. Appreciative that we could enjoy multiple courses without being rushed. Complimentary dessert for our occasion was a nice touch!

Celebrate special occasions at Anne Gunn’s because it never disappoints. Great staff and food and one of the biggest wine lists I’ve seen. Don’t expect to walk in, reservations are a necessity.

It took forever to get a reservation for our weekly dat night but a great dinner finally. Our server Jamie? Was particularly good. It was pricey but the daily off menu specials were terrific. My wife is gluten free and the specials gave plenty to offer.

It’s an old fashion steak house, the steak is good but not fantastic.
The waiter give out the dessert menu while one guest still eating the entree and stand there to wait for her to finished the last bite. Their table for four people is just too small.

Our first time at Annie Gunn's and we were absolutely blown away. This place is the perfect blend of down-home and elegant. Our filets were cooked to perfection, as was the rest of what we ordered (the potato pancake appetizer and potato soup were particularly delicious). The service provided by our server, Michelle, was outstanding and tied everything together. This was the best dining experience either of us had ever had. We can't wait for the next time we can get away to Annie Gunn's.

This was our first visit to St Louis. All in all very very unimpressed with the area UNTIL we found Annie Gunn's. Absolutely fantastic in every way. Delicious appetizers, soup was out of this world and steaks and fish superb. The next door market will blow you away. Not looking forward to a return to STL but would drive from anywhere for Annie Gunn's

I love this place been going for years! I hate to say that for the first time I sent something back because I just didn’t like it. Very unusual. The waiter quickly corrected it and brought me something else that I loved. After eating there 100s of times, even if I sent something back, they are still amazing!

Went to AG for lunch. The waiter we had Marc B. was very good but a little strange. He kept joking about my husbands (73) birthday kinda like he didn't believe us. His BD WAS Apr 1. No biggie. Ordered the chick wings w//side of blue chz dressing (which is to die for-the very best). Wings are always good and consistent. Hot sauce (altho they claim it's homemade, I think it's Franks-not my fav or unique but tolerable. We ordered a "shared" small caesar salad, but the waiter didn't listen and brought each of us a small caesar salad. He was very nice and apologized but didn't make amends to rectiify. Again, all good. They are always busy and not an inexpensive restaurant. We will be back to try something new.
