Gamlin Whiskey House Ratings and Reviews
I made reservations for my boyfriends birthday. Arrived promptly at 7:15 and reservations were for this time. We were seated in the back bar in between two rowdy LOUD tables. Having made reservations and because we were celebrating a special occasion, I was NOT happy and neither was my boyfriend. We asked to move to the dining area where I thought we would be because of my reservation. They told us they couldn't do it due to being busy. We ended up moving to another area, but soon after moving heard the host tell a couple that WALKED IN they were in luck because a table had just opened up in the dining room. Will not be returning and not reccomending to friends. The waitress was great and food. But rude host and not working with our request will mean no return visit for us.
Our food was amazing. This was for an anniversary, so make sure you call in advance for more intimate placement. We were initially placed in a large bar room that was extremely loud and lacked any sense of privacy. The waitress and manager found a quieter place by the front bar rail that turned out great. Just know it's very lively and not a quiet, romantic type of environment. Slightly pricey but the food and cocktails were excellent.
Until this last visit, I'd never had a bad experience at Gamlin except for a snooty bartender one night last year, but the service was terrible this time. Extremely slow server who kept us waiting a good 20 minutes before his first stop at our table. If we'd had at least water while waiting it may not have been a big deal, but we were thirsty!
We went for our son's 30th birthday. He and my husband had dined there the previous week, and raved about the food and the drinks. He wanted to go back for his birthday, with me in tow. Good food, service, ambiance, and worth the price. Will definitely come back when we are in the St. Louis area.
We love this place! When it's nice we really enjoy the patio for lunch or an afternoon drink and appetizers. Service is good unless they are really busy and then there can be wait times for drink refills or to get a check. The food is excellent. We've never had a bad dish here. I always recommend this place to others and have never had anyone disappointed.
The Whiskey House was a wonderful experience. I've lived in St. Louis for about 6 months and it is my favorite restaurant thus far. All of the food that I've had is excellent and everyone is very friendly. My wife and I recently went to brunch and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a great place to eat!
Our visit was a the first time there and we enjoyed everything. My husband started with the Bloody Ghost with the chicken and waffles and he just raved about both. I enjoyed the Wiskey in the Morning Mimosa with the banana and strawberry waffle, YUM! We will be back!!!!
Appetizer was outstanding - shrimp and grits with an egg - highly recommend.
8 oz filet medium rare - not very flavorful. Sides were asparagus/potatoes and those were good.
Chilean Sea bass - not very flavorful. My husband was sick all night after eating it.
Blueberry whiskey lemonade - highly recommend.
Bourbon County Stout - hard to find and they had it! They also sell that to go - great bonus!
Very overpriced for what I received. A three egg omelet for $15 that includes nothing? No thanks. There are many other brunch places that serve better food at a more affordable price. The Brasserie down the street is 15x better and less expensive.
I will not be back.
I had to call to change my reservation from 10 to 12 and the they would very easy to work with. We got a private table in the corner and it was very comfortable. We were seating right away even though our entire party was not there yet. We were not rushed by the server and she was knowledgeable. I know the menu can be over whelming and looks expensive but I just fine ordering appetizers. I recommend the bread board with homemade butters to start. I would come back and definitely make a reservation!
Another extraordinary experience at GWH. As usual, our dinner was superior on both service and food quality. Add to that another drive-by from Dustin (their fantastic Bar Manager) who comped us single-barrel whiskey cocktails from that night's GWH Whiskey Society meeting, and you have the makings of a meal we won't soon forget. No better way to impress my business colleague from out-of-town. Thanks GWH, you folks are the best!!
We went here because it was highly rated as far as a steak house, but they had a lot of signature cocktails too. They had an awesome surf & turf special that wasn't on the menu, and that is what I had, it was exceptional!! Be prepared though, because though you receive a great meal, you also pay for it $$. This is not a place to go if you are on a budget, but it is well worth it. It was somewhat noisy, and not as intimate as what I had expected for the occasion. The other member of my party wasn't as satisfied as I with the meal, but it was still good. We both had to take the leftovers with us, and they were still great the next day.
The restaurant had been overly busy all day and the staff was run ragged. We were seated but without any tableware, which didn't arrive until after our appetizer. We had three different servers, the first of whom we had to flag down after being seated for nearly 10 minutes with no attention from the staff. The appetizer and my entree (shrimp & grits and sea bass) were good, but my husband's entree, the special (steak) was of such poor quality that he literally couldn't eat it (fatty, gristly, silver skin running through it). For a $55 steak that was unacceptable. Also we did not receive the wine we ordered with our meal, my husband had to go to the bar and remind them. The wine was taken off our bill, but by the end of the meal (when we decided we couldn't eat the steak at all) we asked to speak to the manager and she covered our entire bill, which was appreciated. Sadly when we were leaving the table next to us realized she was the manager and began to complain about similar issues. I've been to this restaurant one other time and it was very good, but I probably won't be back or recommend it to anyone else.
