Old friends descended on a native of the area, and the Scottish Arms was highly recommended as a place to reunite, to enjoy lunch, to share good memories and to meet new friends. This was a midweek visit and our timing favored finding a parking place nearby. We were promptly seated at a table for six. Our server was very... More

Fun place in Central West End. Old time bar feel. The triple crisp apps were fabulous. If you like lamb I would recommend the Moroccan lamb. Outstanding.

All the food was amazing! Favorites were the haggis and the lamb. Also recommend flight or 2 of scotch. Staff very helpful.

This restaurant/bar is very close to Saint Louis University and the Central West End. It has a mix of Scottish and traditional bar food. The atmosphere is very "old town" with a Scottish theme. I have been here a few times and it was always good.

I have eaten here about 8 times. Service very good with great food. Many interesting seasonal items, plus regular pub fair of high quality. Love the location a little off the beaten path, but easy to get to.

When my mother-in-law suggested the Scottish Arms for brunch, I was skeptical to say the least. I had only been there as a SLU student for a couple nips o' whiskey. Decent dinner, but expensive for the quality. Oh well! She said she was paying, so smile and eat! Oh dear lord, the Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame were absolutely... More

Having not been to Scottish Arms for sometime, we recently went there for a mid-afternoon May birthday lunch. The Scottish eggs are good, but rather expensive. The entrees were not memorable, but expensive for lunch. The prices would have been acceptable, except the dining room appeared dreary and the waiter seemed indifferent, having guests dining in midafternoon seemed to be... More

This restaurant is definitely an experience. We thoroughly enjoyed trying all the Scottish food. The appetizer sampler was excellent, including the haggis. The beers were good, although they were out of too many of the ones my husbanded wanted. The waitress knew her stuff. Once the main meal came, the food was OK. The lamb shank didn't have much flavor...my... More
