Enjoyed dinner with friends we have known for 20years... Everyone loved thier choices everyone shared the sampler starter. And the price in the end was reasonable.
Meh. The food was only upstaged by the food, which also sucked. I won't hurry back! I'd heard a lot of good things, but brunch didn't come through as memorable.
My fried fish was greasy, instead of having a light, crispy coating. Peas were tasty. Fries were fine. I'll try something different next time. Seating 5 people at a table meant for 4 was a little cramped. Love the ambiance of this building.
Went for brunch because it was such a lovely day and wanted to sit on patio. Patio was closed. Food was ok, but nothing outstanding. Really, I would call it a over-priced Denny's in a historic location. Will not be coming back.
We go to Scottish Arms a lot, and I ALWAYS love the drinks and typically love the food but the last 2 times I've eaten there it seems like the quality of the food has gone down. I got the limoncello gnocchi and the brussel sprouts weren't even cooked - just hot hard painful to chew sprouts. This last time, I got the fish and chips - typically always great - and the batter wasn't even seasoned so it tasted like nothing but grease...we also had quite a few plates left on the table that no one ever cleared. On a super busy night I get it, but it was pretty dead. We were 1 of 5 tables in the main dining room. Might skip the food next time and just enjoy the bar on my next visit.
My shepards pie was awesome and my daughter loved the gnocchi.
Went for Sunday brunch. Bloody Mary bar and unlimited Mimosas is a great option.
First time there & I will be going back
Food good as always...waiter very nice...
The fish and chips was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. We had a booth and we could talk and our server was friendly and efficient- his name was Curtis. Had a lemon whiskey drink and liked it. Would come back again.
Amazing food, service, and atmosphere. We will be returning!
Only inconvenience was Their website, OpenTable and the resturant had different menus, with the resturant version being the smallest offering
Food was good
We were celebrating Valentine's Day. We were seated promptly. I was a little disappointed that I had to ask for a Scotch menu and then had several trips back and forth from our server to then tell me that they were out of 2/3 of my original selections for my Scotch flight, a favorite reason to come to the Arms. Then my server didn't know to serve the whisky with a small container of water to gently open the whisky. They had a 4 course Prix fixe menu which we took advantage of and found out it was all full portions which ended up being a LOT of food. Standouts were beet and goat cheese salad, a harvest salad was also delicious. A fois gras course was perfectly done on toast w an apple compote. A cauliflower prep had good flavor but was cold on arrival. Prime Rib was flavorful but overdone for our taste. We weren't offered a choice of temperature when we ordered and so assumed it would be medium rare and it was closer to medium well. A Yorkshire pudding side was made w butter rather than pan juices/fat and was fairly flavorless. Desserts were both excellent, chocolate lava cake and blackberry pie w an interesting ice cream. Overall a nice evening, with a few minor disappointing things. My Scotch flight chief among them as it's reasonable to expect a bar specializing in the water of life to have better availability of its Scotch menu. The overdone prime rib also was not up to usual quality standards we remember from past meals at Scottish Arms. Nothing that will keep us from coming back, just hope things aren't slipping.
Ambience was great and the drinks and appetizer was as well!
We were in town visiting relatives. The restaurant was close and the menu looked very interesting. Upon arrival we were seated right away and service started off really great, but as the night got busier it was harder to get our server's attention. Lots of great small plates, so we got several so that we can try lots of the different Scottish foods. Great beer and whiskey selections. The bar appeared to be very lively but the tables are in another room which helped with the noise level. Seating appeared to be limited so a reservation is probably a must. We would certainly go back.
Our dinner was great as always. We have been here many times. Always great.
Had a lovely time. Great food. Yummy scotch
Had a friend in from Berlin. Food and service excellent. Unfortunately, we were positioned near the elevated area by the window. When I stood to leave, my chair tipped over the elevated area and I went with it. Fortunately, I was just bruised. On the way out I asked one of the staff if that has happened before and the response was, "All the time?" Huh? Maybe move the table away from the "stage". I'm not big and didn't require much room to get out-still I fell because we were so close to that spot.
Only place ill eat brunch. Endless mimosas for under $15, great staff, tasty food.
We had brunch on Sunday morning. The food was great, the service was great.
It was wonderful to be able to have a reservation.
Food was served hot, waiter was very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Next time will try some Scottish specialities.
I'm a recent transplant to STL and it was a distinct pleasure to discover The Scottish Arms. I've had dinner there several times and it is always outstanding, this was my first brunch experience and all I can say is that I highly recommend it. Excellent quality food, wonderful coffee, friendly and knowledgeable staff and a diverse menu. I left full and very happy. Will definitely be back for another date with my wife!
Great food and service and ambiance, would eat here again
Scottish Arms has always been the place for us to go for a casual, seasonal and special occasion; but, on the recent one of those special occasions, the service was not what we expected to receive. Drink orders were not delivered as ordered and the meals were late in delivery. The meals were great but not an overall good experience. For the meal quality, we will try again but for the price would expect much better service in the future.
The food was so good! Thr Highland platter was so good ee didn't have room for a full entree. Well worth the drive.
Always one of my favorite brunch places in all of Saint Louis! The breakfast pasty was amazing, and the Bloody Mary bar never disappoints.
Food was amazing. Staff was very friendly. Love the Bloody Mary bar!
Love everything! Food is delicious! We don't live in St. Louis but have already been to this restaurant three times!
Great food and relaxing but not pretentious. Good wait staff.
unique scott menu very well executed...great menu of scotches
The food is variable at Scottish Arms - sometimes good, sometimes not. Our last visit was in the latter category. My husband ordered a medium prime rib burger which arrived very well done. I had a lamb shank that somehow was almost tasteless. We asked for salad dressing on the side and instead they put a very small amount on the salad. When we asked for more dressing we were charged extra for it! Won't do that again.
Food and service was good as usual. The lighting in the dinning room, however, is so dim that it is difficult to read the menu or the check
No complaints. This place had impeccable service and the best duck I've ever eaten.
what an amazing and unique restaurant. the waiters were good-natured and well-versed in the offerings. the presentation of both food and drink was beautiful and artistic, and the quality and taste of the food was extraordinary. i had the fish and chips for my entree, and it was out of this world. i did not eat the scottish eggs, but those at the table of scottish descrnt did, and they said it was spa
The food is always fabulous- no matter if it’s brunch or dinner.
Excellent food and service. We had the haggis and the venison. Delicious!
Definately a place to go.
The service was slow, but the waitress was really nice. I thought it was odd to pay $15.00 fee to bring our own birthday cake in- especially because they didn't cut and serve it. The food was delicious!
