We went here for a Saturday brunch with another couple. Love the old look it has - very historic! The bar is gorgeous! The guys had the bloody mary bar and said it had all sorts of options to put in their drink. They got to choose their brand of Vodka and then take the glass up and choose their... More

It's been awhile since we've been here and I really wish we'd visited sooner. Great old timey pub decor and the staff was very friendly. We had some cocktails at the bar before our reservation and my wife commented that her Manhattan was the best she's ever had. Appetizer consisted of the bridies--a pastry with seasoned ground beef. They were... More

I appreciate the patience of the staff when seating me when I told them there would be anywhere from 1 to 3 more people coming to join me ... and then they were all a bit late! :D But all went well, and our server paid just the right amount of attention to our table, anticipating when we would need...

We went for lunch and were very happy we did. The menu offers something for everyone. And the drinks menu does, too. We had a roast beef sandwich, very rich and delicious. And a Scottish smoked salmon sandwich, also delicious. Both came with the excellent house chips, not greasy in the least and not over-salted as they are at some... More

We have a very good brunch at Scottish Arms. My husband loved the Scotch egg, my daughter enjoyed the biscuit breakfast and I had the quiche of the day, all delicious. And of course endless mimosas to wash it all down. The server was quite nice and welcoming.

Never really tried Scottish food, other than Fish & Chips, and my wife and I were thoroughly impressed. We ordered the fish & chips along with the sampler plank - lots of food. Great Scotch whiskey and beer selection. New to MO, and I whole heartedly can recommend this restaurant. Oh, and the waitress/staff were excellent.

While some of the entrees were good, some were only fair. The venison was dry as if it had been cut without sufficient time to rest. The chioppino was tasty, but not all of the mussels opened. The lamb shank and the salmon were quite good. Wine list is limited given this is a place for scotch and whiskey. Service... More

On a business trip to St. Louis, I visited the Scottish arms on Burns Supper day. It was an exciting atmosphere. This bar has typical Scottish fare, including haggis. I relay enjoyed the hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage and deep fried. delicious. I didn't like the haggis much. There were seemed like 100 different whiskeys to try. I really... More

One enters the door and is swept into a Scottish pub atmosphere! The barmaid greets you and welcomes you with a smile and an offer of beer ( Twisted Thisle is good) or wassail. The restaurant is decorated with Scottish historical decor, and if you ladies are luck, the waiter may be wearing a kilt! Live music is a normal... More

Huge whiskey selection and a chill, relaxing bar. Had some delicious beer - lots of local drafts available and some more select bottles from the UK. Besides the extensive whiskey selection, this was your typical scottish bar.
