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.

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.

Annie Gunn's is always an enjoyable experience, the roast beef with gruyere cheese on always soft warm bun and accompanied with Au jus is one of my favorites, the fries were hot and plenty full, although they did not taste the same as last time I was there, not sure what was different, they were a bit crunchier, perhaps just in the fryer a bit longer. The pepsi, was well pepsi (darn could not get a drink from their extensive and thoughtful wine list) and a dinner roll served first that was hot and a good sourdough starter. It's just lunch, but from the service to the food you can never go wrong here.

As usual, we were quickly seated, greeted, and made to feel comfortable. The food pleased us all. Perhaps the heirloom tomatoes on my BLT were left over from last summer.
