This reviewer took a colleague to dinner. She has lived in the area for decades, and did not know of the Scottish Arms (interesting, a flight attendant on the trip to Saint Louis DID know of this restaurant.) The cuisine, the portion sizes, the service, and yes, the scotch were all outstanding. This traveler had visited the Scottish Arms before... More

First time here for a bon-voyage party. The food was very good, plenty of selection to keep everyone happy. The selection of beers, scotch and wiskey are unbelievable. Our server Adam was great and very informative about the menu.We are a food sharing family so I can say the bangers and mash, the small plates, the fish and chips were... More

The Sunday Bloody Mary bar is a great way to start any day. Fresh ingredients and choice of house made smoky mix or a great Zing Zang. The Loxs and Bagel could have used a bit more presentation. It looked used. The Fish and Chips was right spot on. I definitely would return to this place.

The food is just delectable, and the Scotch selection is unmatched in St. Louis! This place is good for a casual lunch, a romantic date, or even a Father's Day brunch. You really can't go wrong.

This is one of our favorite places to go. The atmosphere is a genuine Scottish pub (the owner is from Aberdeen shire) and although the meats and produce are selected from local sources, the seasoning and preparation are like you would find in Scotland. Service is friendly and attentive. The selection of beers and single malt scotches is extensive, and... More

It takes a while to get used to the staff wearing kilts. The food was always good. They put together a sampler as we were a large party. They have a good selection of single malts. If you like Irish folk singing you should enjoy the entertainment.

Everything we had was excellent!!! From the anti-pasta, to the scotch eggs, the BIGGEST piece of Haddock I've ever had, the wonderful melt in your mouth burger, excellent draught beers & a scotch section that damn near made me tear with joy....We will come to visit this little gem again & again & again.

We returned for the umpteenth time because we like the atmosphere, the food, the value and the service. It was crowded but we were able to make reservations. One of the things I like is the great selection of beers and Scotch, which we enjoyed. I thought the haggis wrapped in bacon was disappointing. The fish and chips are good... More

My wife found this place on line because we were going to be in St. Louis. Having lived in Scotland for two years, I'm familiar with things Scottish, including cuisine, This is a wonderful restaurant! We had the Highland Gathering appetizer which is a combination of haggis, Scotch eggs, small pasties and smoked salmon, and it was all excellent. Cock... More
