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 had a terrific meal and Phil was a great server! He added a dessert for our anniversary which was delicious! Our only disappointment was being seated in one of the very small private rooms. We had to keep opening the door because it felt a little claustrophobic ....and we were unable to do any people watching. In the future I would ask for alternate seating. Overall the fiid and it’s presentation is worth the price!

Best steak I've had in St. Louis. The maple glazed shrimp were enormous and amazing. You have to try the bread pudding. Also, the staff and management know what they are doing. Great job guys!

There are so many things Annie Gunns does better than anyone.
Monster bone-in filet, huge lamb chops , oysters many ways and fantastic desserts.
Yesterday had halibut and fish and chips. Outstanding.
One of the best wine lists in town.
And the market next door for meats and fresh baked pies.

As always the food was excellent. The noise level has increased significantly and in the future I will only request a snug. The restaurant should consider a dress code as some guest were dressed way to casual for such a fine establishment.

We went for lunch for my son’s birthday. The country fried steak is made with prime meat and a delicious white gravy, mashed potatoes and green beans. It is comfort food done with a light hand. The oysters are always fresh. The steak tartar ,that was a special that day, was served with fresh made soda bread that was a lovely crusty counterpoint to the texture of the raw beef. The hamburger is made with a blend of cuts that yield a superior burger. If you like the blend you can buy it at the Smokehouse market next door along with a myriad of tasty treats. Our server was attentive and professional. The experience at Annie Gunn’s is consistently exceptional.

Saw on yelp the classic burger seemed to be a hit so we gave it a try. It’s too big for me I wish there is a quarter pound option but the quality was there for sure. We got our own little inclosed room so that was a bonus for us to catch up in a more quiet place.

I have eaten there several times.
I would have to say, this was my least favorite.
I ordered the tuna. One piece I could not eat. I could not chew it. Gristle of something, and it was cold.
very disappointed in the oysters. way too small. barely a bite.

We were celebrating a graduation. I had ordered a steak and the waitress described the cooking techniques. The steak came out more cooked than I liked. The manager came over and the waitress said that it would take 25 minutes to have another steak prepared. I did not get one because everyone at the table was eating and I wanted to eat with them. Also because we were celebrating the waitress told us they were brining my son a dessert on the house. They still charged us for the dessert as well.

Annie Gunn's has been around a long time because it is a great restaurant. The food is outstanding as is the service and atmosphere. Expect to spend a few bucks but you won't go away hungry. The portions are generous. It is one of our favorite local restaurants. Be sure to make your reservations well in advance.

This was our second time visiting this restaurant and it was just as good as our first. We were seated immediately and our server, Rebecca, arrived at our table soon afterwards. Rebecca was one of the best servers we have ever experienced. We felt as if we had visited the home of someone we knew. Rebecca was very professional, personable and knowledgeable. I told her what I was looking for in a wine and she brought a couple of selections that were very good and I could hardly make up my mind on which one to chose. The food was great, we both had seafood dishes that were superb. We will definitely return.

Excellent food, staff and atmosphere. We only had a few hours together in St Louis and wanted the best experience for our important celebration. As expected, we got it. Annie Gunn’s was a favorite when we lived in the area and now a place we want to visit when we’re in town. Always exceeds expectations.
