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 Gunn's is a friendly restaurant. They offer the best steaks in town at several price points and seafood entrees and appetizers for those looking for variety. The staff is friendly and welcoming and management follows up mid-dinner to ask if there is anything else you need. A truly enjoyable place for lunch or dinner, business or pleasure.

If you are ever in the St. Louis/Chesterfield area this place is a must have stop.
The Meatloaf, Beef tenderloins and oh my gosh the maple glazed hickory smoked shrimp are definitely must haves. And do not forget to go next door to the Skokehouse store, you WILL NOT be disappointed.

Portions are generous on the chicken fried steak which uses prime strip steak and burgers which uses a blend of cuts for the ground beef as well as being utterly delicious. The lunch medallion of beef was tender with an excellent cognac green peppercorn sauce which was accompanied by mashed potatoes and green beans and squash. The vegetables are tastily prepared elevating the out of the lackluster afterthought you find in many restaurants. The service is excellent. Annie Gunn’s is our good to when in the area or for special occasions. The Smoke House next door sell the burger blend as well as a fine assortment of prime meat including carrying Snake River Farms. They have the best pies with top notch crust and flavorful fruit fillings. It is a combo deli and meat market. Both the restaurant and market utilize local farms and suppliers.

Reserving a snug is fun, but it was annoying how the waitress checked on us too much and never closed the door completely. Excellent nosh, but my $52 salmon was a small portion.

As usual, Chef Lou and owner Thom Sehnert hit another home run. For so many years they have been an unbeatable combination. Highest quality food, impeccable, personable service (from hostess to bartenders to servers to somlierre), their staff is the best. Fantastic rib eye, filet and salmon, shrimp and crab cake appetizers- everything was superb. Thanks for always delivering a top notch experience - Annie Gunn’s is the very best - anywhere!

One of the best restaurants in St. Louis- the quality of the food is always excellent. I strongly recommend the grouper if you are there when it is featured- the best I have ever had. Also our server, Christina, was excellent with recommendations and service.

Annie G's is a lovely place to meet for lunch. The options on the menu are wide. It's pricey...and actually quite over-priced...but it's the monied edge of town, so it is what it is. The side of potato salad was tasty in texture and ingredients, but had no seasoning whatsoever...bland. Everything else was quite good. Service was impeccable. Overall ambiance was just right. The tables for a party of 6 were merely foldable banquet tables with legs in all the wrong places for comfort and not bashing the daylights out of your knees...but nicely covered in linens...but watch out for your knees!

Another outstanding experience at Annie Gunn’s. As per usual we ordered the filets and they didn’t disappoint. The service was just outstanding! Our waitress - Erica truly towers above the rest. Erica was very attentive to our needs, she showed us plenty of options and made us feel like part of the family. The service and the amazing food will continue to bring us back every time.
