Visiting The Scottish Arms is always a great experience. The food and cocktails are always spot-on and the rotating menu items ensures you will have an opportunity to experience new dishes.
Good beer selection. Sprits also if that's your bent. Food portions decent, while prepared very well. Service very attentive.
Outstanding Food and outstanding service. Could have not been any better.
Excellent food and wait staff along with great cocktails.
Outstanding service from a foodie bartender who knows her whiskys. Food great as always. Especially loved the peat smoked chicken.
Fantastic as always. Always look forward to eating here.
Visited for the first time for my birthday with some friends and had a phenomenal time. Our server Ryan was hilarious, quick witted, and incredibly accommodating. The food was fantastic and offered many thoughtful and tasty options. We can’t wait to come back!
Loved the lamb shanks. Cannot go wrong with fish and chips. Like the lamb burger.
Great selection of Scotch; they have a full bar,
There's no better place to celebrate a November birthday than the Scottish Arms! I had the lamb shank with creamy barley and peas, root vegetables, and lamb demi-glace. The lamb was tender and richly flavored, the barley side delightfully chewy, and the dish was beautifully plated on dark stoneware--a nice change from the stark white over-sized tableware that has become commonplace in restaurants. My husband chose one of his favorites, the fish and chips, which were perfectly done, with a light, crisp, and non-greasy finish. Dessert was banoffee bread pudding; banana is not my favorite, but the pudding was just the way I like it, with crisp edges to the bread and a texture just dense enough to give a bit of resistance to the tooth without being heavy or stodgy. The creamy caramel sauce was scrumptious! Although the menu has been scaled back during this difficult time and many of my favorites were not available, the restaurant is meeting the challenge admirably. There may be fewer choices, but the food was outstanding as always. I had checked on the reservation form that this was a birthday celebration, and I received many cheerful greetings from the staff wishing me a happy birthday. Our waiter has only been working there a few weeks, but he was genial and knowledgeable, attentive without being obtrusive. A perfect evening!
As seniors it was too dark the menu was difficult to see. Food selection was limited and we are more used to traditional menus. Bread would have been nice as part of the dinner. Our cocktails and desert were very good.
The Scottish Arms is the best Restaurant in STL. They have the best team from the front to the back for an overall AMAZING experience. Manager Mike and Owner Ally know what putting the client experience at the highest level is about. They can’t be beat and they ALWAYS make their patrons feel like family. Amazing is just not a good enough word to explain how remarkable the Arms is.
First time going, was really impressed with the service and the food.
They always have something for everyone on the menu and the price is right for the service, location and the food.
Was probably the first good experience we have had in going out since things have opened back up more. Great food, drinks, service, and overall time. Often it has been hard to have the experience be great overall, so was such a relaxing relief. Keep it up!
Our server was attentive, the food and drink were presented timely, and we enjoyed both. Definitely like that menu items are more unique and reflective of the restaurant theme.
Great little place that brought back nostalgia from living in the UK a few years.
Started with a Scotch egg - it was phenomenal. I had the Duck Wellington, and my wife ordered the Bangers and Mash. The duck was perfectly cooked and paired with a berry sauce that complemented it well. My wife enjoyed her meal and we noted that the sausage is truly the kind from the UK that we have tried and failed to find in any stores here.
Their mixed drinks were also very good, but I did find myself longing for some imported British beer. That said, they did have a lot of British-style American ales and a Bulmer’s cider, which might be the best you can get during the pandemic.
5/5, great food and drinks, good ambiance, and friendly staff.
Good food but menu was disappointing. Would have loved some more British options. Service was cold. Decor was sparse.
My first visit and the place was great. Very friendly hostess greeted me at front door and took me to my seat. Was promptly served water and told how to find menu using QR code. The wine list is short and delicious. Food was outstanding. If you are meeting someone who attends St. Louis University, it is a perfect place to have happy hour of dinner. I will be back!
A nice selection of interesting things to eat - some surprises, some old favorites. We always appreciate Frank's thoughtful attention and suggestions.
great experience. Weather allowed al fresco dining. the only issue was brunch doesn’t include toast or biscuit
The eggs Benedict were not good, pretty much a staple at most Sunday brunches. Both eggs were almost hard cooked stage, and the greens plopped on the plate alongside made for a very unattractive presentation.
We enjoyed brunch at The Scottish Arms very much! Traditional Scottish Brunch was outstanding. Loved the bangers and the black pudding. Also can’t go wrong with a nice draft beer. I was disappointed the Scottish Ale was out but the Civil Life Brown Ale was perfect. Brunch; lunch, dinner or just drinks, this pub is one of the best in the STL!
Great food. Great drinks. Great atmosphere. Perfect.
We frequently go to Scottish Arms and find the food reliably good, especially the fish& chips, which is outstanding. The service staff are always very nice and attentive and, since we had a rather early reservation, the restaurant was not at all busy and was pleasantly quiet but not dead.
Very good experience all around. Our server, Daniel, was friendly and took care of us well. The food and drinks were solid, would definitely come back. We came for brunch and it was fairly full but not too noisy. Highlights: the scotch egg was one of the best I’ve had and the fish in the fish and chips was nicely fried.
We two had not been to Scottish Arms before. We were looking to get out of our West County rut. So, with a little research, we made reservations. This is in an old building in St Louis city, old but charming. they have outdoor dining as well as inside. We each had Pork Wellington, like the beef variety, and split a Kale Caesar Salad. The food was very good, the service was prompt, we were escorted to our table promptly at our reservation time. The wine list was mediocre, but cocktails were plentiful. Prices were affordable and moderate.
I have seen Scottish Arms on OpenTable for over a year. I am so sad it has taken me so long to finally eat there. I was impressed with the drinks and the food was amazing. Luckily I was able to taste three amazing dishes while I was there. I had the lamb burger and it was a top 5 I have ever had. The Shepard's Pie and the Bangers and Mash were also incredibly tasty. I would highly recommend Scottish Arms to anyone that wants amazing food and drinks.
I have always loved their Scotch egg and it is still great. Tries the watermelon salad and the lamb flatbread. A delicious meal! So glad they are open again.
Everything was great. Enjoyed the food. If the four of us had not had alcoholic drinks, it would have been a bargain!
Best part of the meal was the monkey bread, mimosa and coffee. I would have gotten 20 orders of this bread if I knew how yummy it was!
Sunday brunch was very much a hustle & bustle, but it’s an Irish spot so I’d you been to a few, that’s nothing new. I didn’t enjoy the rest of the breakfast, but that has everything to do with my picky palette not the food itself.
We will definitely be back to try the dinner selections as we are curious what more this joyous spot has to offer. Plus, one can’t make that delicious of a monkey bread and not have other gems on the menu.
But, the monkey bread is definitely the star of the brunch menu! And their coffee is everything!
The chef is from New Orleans and has made some of the dishes with spices/seasonings from that cuisine. Because of this, we did not like how the sausage and beans tasted. Please go back to the old recipes.
Grear ambiance, great food.
While the atmosphere was cool and the service was very good, the restaurant can be quite loud as the sounds carries a lot in the space. The drinks were good, but the food was just okay.
The cocktails and food were amazing. We had the scotch egg as an appetizer which was delicious. Our entree's were the salmon and the chimichurri steak. Both were cooked to perfection. Staff were knowledgeable, extremely nice & accommodating. Setting up a reservation was easy. I highly recommend.
The food was delicious. We arrived early for our reservations and were seated right away. The atmosphere was perfect for Sunday brunch. The Scottish breakfast was awesome.
Great place with a great bar menu and terrific food.
Love the back patio. Food and service was fantastic.
limited brunch choices, poor service
Great as always!
