Everything is fresh off of the grill. Which is great if you like grilled stuff. But not so great for vegetarians.

We dropped in looking for a reasonably priced decent dinner something different from what we had seen. The decor is very pleasant wood and more upscale. Prices were fitting for the meal. Presentation was nice. I had the special tilapia, my boss had salmon. We both loved the flavors and the size of the meal. The only downside was the... More

Love the free range chicken or the salmon. The staff is always super helpful and accomodating. Good for a private party or catering too

I went to dinner a few nights ago for Restaurant Week. At first I contacted the restaurant early in the day to get a reservation, there were none. So I asked if there may be a cancellation, could I be notified and the host contacted me later with an 8pm reservation. He was amazing and didn't have to call me... More

Way over priced for what you get, and a very stuffy pretentious crowd. If you are interested in hanging around this sort of a crowd perhaps you might actually like this place. So many good places to eat and drink in the St. Louis area, avoid this joint.

We went to Cardwell's for the third time during Clayton Restaurant week and this time the food was terrible. The food was re-heated, not fresh at all. My daughter's steak was cold, yes cold! We sent it back and a couple of minutes later they bring it back luke warm. My chicken seemed to be from a school cafeteria. Bread... More

Went to this place after a recommendation. We were definitely not disappointed. We were here during restaurant week so we had limited options but everything was fantastic! The service was awesome and the location is wonderful! Will definitely be dining here again when we are back in the area!

Cardwell's has a great outdoor patio ... perfect for a cocktail with friends or business associates. We dined on a weekday evening and there was hardly a table filled inside the restaurant. Dining in such an empty establishment gives a cold, cavernous feel that is uncomfortable. The service was excellent ... but the food was average for the prices. Three... More

Comfortable dining with quality food at reasonable prices for lunch. If you are looking for a restaurant where you can have a conversation, enjoy a menu that offers a wide variety of choices with pleasant and attentive staff, give Cardwell's in Clayton a try. Salad portions are large. Check out their daily specials too.
