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 enjoyed our brunch at Scottish Arms. We both liked our food quite a bit. I did find myself wishing that my dish came with some fruit or a bit of a salad. We did feel that our service was not the best. It wasn’t terrible and also not great. Also, when my companion asked for her egg to be cooked more fully, that request was met with an unsmiling “all right”. We will be very happy to return to the Scottish Arms and give it another try.

Our table of 5 was placed away from the lunch crowd so we were able to have important conversations. The waiter was courteous and did not intrude during conversations.
The food was well presented and everyone enjoyed their selections.

I ma never disappointed when I dine at the Scottish Arms!

I booked a business dinner for four on a Tuesday night looking for a casual place with good food and the Scottish Arms did not disappoint. It has a great pub ambiance and very friendly proprietors. Our server was excellent and had great recommendations from the menu. Unfortunately, they were out of the two dishes I really wanted to try which seemed unusual since they were on the main menu. We ended up having the Scottish appetizer sampler plate which was very tasty and great to share. I had the pork chop which was perfectly done with a nice mushroom sauce. The beer list was small, but adequate. The whisky list was extensive with excellent selections. I wish I had more time to sample it, but it was a Tuesday.

We came during a downtime so it was slower. The server was nice and told us about the building when we asked about its history. Plates were delicious, and one plate was definitely split-able between two people.

Warm atmosphere, friendly service, and a comfort food menu. There was a small, but well-selected wine list, also. First place in St. Louis I've seen our favorite Montalcino Rosso varietal, so it was worth the trip for us!

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.

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.
