I've wanted to try this restaurant for years--we've lived nearby for 15 years and have not stopped in, mainly because steak restaurants are simply that--too limited a menu for us to find attractive. But I took our daughter (age 30) last week and was quite taken with the place. It is old-school-looking--interior stained glass panels, white tablecloths, low (dropped) ceiling,... More

The steaks were very good and service was fine but everything seemed a bit rushed. It wasn't easy to relax and enjoy the meal. Probably will not return.

Still great and much less expensive than the chain steak houses. We have been going there for over 40 years still the best local steak house

I met a friend at Charcoal House. He's a regular; I probably haven't been there for at least 20 years. We both ordered the lunch special, a beef shish-kabob served on a bed of rice, then covered with a ladle of mushroom gravy. This was probably one of the weekly lunch specials 20 years ago. It's my sense that the... More

I have been going to the Charcoal House for many years and the food is very good, and the entire staff is exceptional from the busboys to the waitresses to the chef to the owners--they will make you feel at home. There are not many places left like this that have been around for over 30 years with the same... More

The slaw lacked some essential ingredients, oil, lemon juice, salt, sugar. Just had the cabbage and carrot! order was picked up by me [Jack]. 314 645-2267 This will not deter my wife and I from enjoying meals at the Charcoal House as it was just one of those unfortunate happenstances!

I have been to the Charcoal House many, many times through the decades and it never changes. And that's a good thing, because I believe I can remember nearly every visit for the same reason. We always go there with old friends and we always have a great time. Many years ago there were a number of restaurants in St.... More

Our first visit was for lunch with a rather limited menu. I had the New York Strip, and my wife a Petite Filet. Both were very good but probably not prime. The New York Strip was $35. Tolerable- but it came with fries.(not so tolerable). The service was exceptionable, the atmosphere warm and cozy, and the mixed drinks excellent. All... More

First when we looked online, it seemed like an old fashioned restaurant...it is. Cozy seating...which actually means tight, but it was crowded and a holiday. Doable. The prices were elevated for this date...it is what it is on a holiday. Two of us ordered the fried shrimp...being in the middle of the country and being from both coasts, I was... More

The Charcoal House has apparently been in its present location for almost 50 years. We learned of it through friends and have visited a few times. The steaks are very good and the atmosphere in the restaurant very nice. I did make the mistake of ordering their pork chop during my last visit and I would advise you not do... More
