The one guy in a kilt, needs a bigger kilt, it didn't fit. Second, the kitchen was slow. Third, the biscuits were salty. Lastly, if they let you order off of their normal menu, at brunch, it would have been much better. The last time, before this one, that I had been here, was 3 years ago.

We were in town for Homecoming/Parents Weekend and have just started to get to know the St. Louis area. A very pleasant surprise was brunch at Scottish Arms. The food is great, especially the highland hangover - a wonderful assortment of Scottish food, but please make sure you are hungry - portions are generous! My family had the daily hash... More

My husband is from Edinburgh- The Scottish Arms is the only place around to enjoy Scottish dishes. The Haggis Fritters are delectable. Their fish chips are comparable to what your get across the pond ;both in size AND taste). Their meat comes from local farms, which is nice to hear. Their whisky selection is second to none around. Oh and... More

My husband and I went here for dinner - trying something new in the CWE. We were not disappointed. We bought thought our dinners were excellent (haggis, chicken & leek cornish pasty). The service was lovely and we had a great time. Dim restaurant made for a romantic dinner.

Choosing a place that is slightly off the main stream of St. Louis - Scottish Arms was a nice, quiet and lovely dining experience. Greeted at the door and seated immediately - we ordered a half price beer (Happy Hour) and dinner. The Urban Chestnut Black Pumpkin Ale was excellent and the Fish and Chips - generously portioned, very fresh... More

We went to dinner at the Scottish Arms last week and were told that they were debuting a new menu that evening. It did look different from what was posted on their website, but not any significant removals - just some additions. The menu is a bit of a mixed bag - appetizers looked delicious, but the entrees seemed to... More

Recommended as a fun little restaurant with good Scottish food. Sadly the food was just ok. The atmosphere is really neat loved the wood work. But the service was terrible. Terrible!!!

We had brunch here with our children. Food was good, reasonably priced. Service was a bit lax but that is in keeping with the the place.

The Scottish breakfast (open for brunch) was the best I have had in months. Thick bacon, homemade sausage, beans and more! All prepared by an excellent chef. Far better than typical British pub fare. Or, more precisely, exactly what pub fare can be in the hands of a true chef. It is fine dining in a more casual atmosphere. Hard... More
