Delicious!!

My husband and I both had the stuffed quail and it was amazing. Drinks and service were just as good. We will be making this a more common dinner spot.

Dinner is great- food is consistently delicious and I've returned many a time. I'd recommend it. Atmosphere is nice and wait staff is friendly and warm. Brunch, on the other hand, is a swing and a miss for Scottish Arms! I had heard mixed things (some good, some bad) and decided to check it out. One of the worst brunches... More

More than just a pub, the Arms serves seasonal dishes supported with local products from local farms. Still a great bar with more beers and whiskys than you can shake a golf club at, the food is fresh and delicious, the service is fast and friendly, and the prices are still reasonable. One of our favorite places.

This pub restaurant not only serves great Scotch but excellent, and unusual, food. It plays on the Scots theme with the menu - mini haggis, scotch eggs, pasties are amongst the starters. Mains include traditional British fare such as fish and chips, sausage and mash and a range of other pub favourites. Puddings include strawberry balsamic crumble, sticky toffee pudding... More

My girlfriend and I stopped in for lunch. With a busy crowd, we were excited to see what the fuss was about. We decided to go small plate and ordered Scotch eggs, Brie and garlic on grilled bread, gnocchi, and Celtic crisps with cheese. The Scotch eggs were overcooked. The egg was so far overdone that it just crumbled to... More

We recently ate here because friends recommended this establishment. We lived in Europe for many years was excited to check out Scottish Arms. The atmosphere and facility is very charming. The food was not very good. We had the Kebab and Lamb. The Kebab was the better of the two but still underwhelming. The lamb was under seasoned and over... More

While in St Louis for our 35th anniversary for a show at the Fox, we were looking for something a little different for dinner. The dinner we had was outstanding! We started with the Scottish Smoked Salmon- outstanding! My wife had a Chicken dish baked in a pastry while I had the Bangers and Mash. Both dishes were nicely plated... More

We decided on Scottish Arms on a Sunday around noon. It was brunch and the menu was limited. Apparently they have some sliders that are really good and one in our party hoped for them, but they were not on the menu. Still we were able to find some good dishes to try. I had the gyro which was very... More
