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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Always one of my favorite brunch places in all of Saint Louis! The breakfast pasty was amazing, and the Bloody Mary bar never disappoints.
