“Just..ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

We visited Culpeppers for a friend's birthday. I'm not sure if it was because we were seated in the basement but I really didn't feel like the service was that great, the food was just..ok and the ambiance of the restaurant was just lacking.

The husband and I may visit again on our own to see if it makes a difference.

On a positive note it looks as if the area we sat in had some nice updates.

“Great wings and soups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

These are the best buffalo wings in St. Louis. Many will argue for their favorites but they have not tasted these. They are crisp (not soggy) and fresh. They also make a great soup (many to choose from).

“Wings! Wings! Wings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The best wings in town for years, and they now offer options to the buffalo preparation; try the golden. Service not their strong suit, but get past it and order some wings. Don't like 'em? Then the BLT or pork tenderloin sandwich are also great.

“Hate to see our favorite struggle”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We have always loved Culpepper's. The wings are killer good. One of those places that when we crave wings, we instantly think Culpepper's. The problem is that over the past few years, the service has been deplorable. The wait staff is terribly unskilled. I like beer so I will ask what is on tap...they don't know the difference between an ale, a lager or a stout. They have menus on the tables that have drinks, appetizers and deserts that are no longer available. The restaurants also seem less clean (tables are sticky) and the food is just thrown together. This is a shame, because we have always loved the place but it seems like some poor management decisions have made one of our favorites a good candidate for Gordon Ramsey's "Kitchen Nightmares". I never thought I would be giving Culpeppers' a bad review, but there it is...I hope they fix it soon. I would hate to see a favorite place die because of poor management.
