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

This was the first stop in our Easter weekend food / pub crawl in St. Louis. Clearly a neighborhood bar, it is also apparently a destination bar. Dark, mysterious and freaking delicious. My wife and I came in and grabbed a spot at the end of the bar. She was excited as they had Boddington's on tap. I had the... More

Stopped by for lunch and drinks and was certainly not disappointed by the selection of food and beverages on offer. Was like stopping back in time to an olde-wordly style pub in the Scottish Highlands. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Food was fresh and well prepared. Certainly worth a visit.

Seriously, everything here is delicious and awesome. From the charcuterie to the cheese planks to the smoked salmon, you name it! The staff is super laid back and friendly, (Paige is a great bartender btw) and everyone I bring here always has a great time. Great for friends or a date night.

Oh. My. Gosh. This place is absolutely incredible! The minute you walk in the door, you know it is something special, and a “proper Scottish pub.” The décor is elegant, lots dark, rich wood, subdued lighting, and a bar displaying an extensive selections of whiskeys. And...men in kilts! We came here for the traditional fare so for starters, we ordered... More

I visited Scottish Arms with a group of work colleagues seeking a change from the typical hotel or near the hotel food. The service was great - plenty of attention when we wanted it and none when we didn't. Good bar selection and enough variety to satisfy 9 very different palates. Everyone had different entrees and enjoyed them. The Mince... More

My wife and I had a great meal here and will be back. The atmosphere is casual but the food is much more than your typical bar fare. We could have made a meal out of appetizers, but didn't want to miss out on the special or some of the other entre items. Topping everything off was a great beer... More

Great atmosphere whether it is for Brunch or dinner. Largest Scotch selection in the city and ranked in the top 5 in the country.
