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.

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.

We had a wonderful time and really appreciated being in the "little nook type booth" all by ourselves. We could really enjoy our chatting. And our server was fantastic and most helpful. And the food, as always, was excellent. The dry Rose wine was very good but kinda pricey. All in all...a wonderful experience.

In St Louis for one night for business and Annie Gunn's was recommended. Dined alone. Friendly staff mad me feel like a local. Food was very good and good value. Old school vibe. Dark, old "steak house" feeling. Noisy local crowd on a Thursday night mostly on their third drink made the place a bit loud (and fun). Would go regularly if I lived there!

This definitely wasn’t our first visit and it won’t be our last! The food is amazing, well worth the price tag. We always have a shooter of champagne to open the meal, rolls and butter come before as well. We had the blue crab bisque and it was delicious, then filets (my husband had the surf and turf), and we finished off with apple pie and cinnamon ice cream, which is to die for. Needless to say, we left absolutely stuffed to the gills. The service is always friendly and attentive, and we enjoy the atmosphere, generally the noise is on the higher end but it’s a familiar and warm ambience that we love.

Our food was great. While our waiter, Andy, was more than solid, his addition of "Love," "Dear," etc. was something I found patronizing. If he'd like to use a name, I'd advise him to ask for it and remember it.
