Located in the heart of St Louis' Central West End, The Scottish Arms is a rustic traditional Victorian style pub and a comfortable setting for lunch, dinner and late night entertainment.


The product driven menu changes seasonally focusing on the purity and quality of local ingredients and sustainable farming wherever possible which gives us the ability to create many styles of rustic European cuisine.


Our hearts will always be in Scotland so we will have our famous Scotch Eggs, Haddock n' Chips and Bangers, to name a few, all year round.


Our wine list was carefully crafted focusing on Old World Vintages, over 100 single malts, award winning cocktails and plenty of excellent local and European pints.


Proud to support Hinkebein Hills Farm. Farrar Out Farms. Jones Heritage and Greg Pusczek to name a few.


And, don't miss Sunday Brunch with our famous Bloody Mary Bar, Endless Mimosas, Fresh Squeezed OJ.

We always love our time and the food (and the
Whiskey !) at the Arms!! Got the Highland Board again - such a great appetizer to share, it’s perfect for a group of 4. Theres 2 of everything and we cut everything in half. It’s the perfect amount. Then we ordered the very fresh and delicious Seafood Stew! Yum!!!

Food was boring, nothing special. Fish tasted like fried cod. Nothing spectacular. Pork belly was dry, wifes fries were cold . Waiter didnt even talk about any specials. Waiter didnt even mention any of their whiskeys. Glad we tried it. Won't be back

We were nicely accommodated in the bar area for seating as we had requested a space where we could see and hear the band that was playing. Our server was very attentive but not all over us. The food was incredible. Overall it was one our recent best dining out experiences.

We’ve been here approximately 10 times in the last three years since our son has been a student at SLU, and it’s a family favorite. Have never had a complaint.

Your $20 plank that I always order as an appetizer was very skimpy on the food as compared to other visits. The drinks as always are priced too high and again the drinks the ladies ordered were served in what I would call a tiny dessert cup, not a martini glass.

The service and the ambiance were great as usual.

As soon as we wallked in we were very kindly welcomed. The Bartenders were very helpful and very nice.
Our waiter was great, he gave suggestions and was informative on the dishes. We would recommend Sottish Arms to many friends.

Always one of my favorite places...great selection of beers and whiskies, and food that is beyond the usual fare, although the usual fare (like burgers) are great. We had shepherds pie, cockaleekie pie and bangers and mashed. Food, drink and environment all authentic to the idea of a Scottish pub.

Went to the Scottish arms for the first during a snowy Sunday for brunch. Got the coffee and the highland hangover platters. Food tasted really good and it was a good way to discover Scottish cuisine.
Will go again.

You don't think "Scottish" when thinking of fine cuisine, but the food is great. The whisky list is even better, and the service was notably good.
