Gamlin Whiskey House Ratings and Reviews

Was disappointed in our visit this time. We raved about this place the first time we went but this time we were a bit disappointed. Out of several whiskey/bourbon requests, pork steak was more like a pork roast, BBQ sauce on flank steak was a bit heavy and many of the steaks were a bit overcooked. The server didn't seem to be very familiar with the menu and even said he wouldn't recommend the pot pie which one of our guests was really wanting to order for some comfort food (dealing with a cold). It'll be a while before we go back yet I'm hoping it was just an off night.

The food was good, the service on this date was not so good. Our dinner took over 3 1/2 hours for 5 people...perhaps they were understaffed on 1/1, even though it was a big night in St. Louis because of the Winter Classic. Also ran out of one of the signature meals - filets - by 8:30 pm...somebody didn't anticipate much of a crowd...

We had a very nice dinner here. Not sure the restaurant was prepared for such a crowd for the weekend as they were out of several items from being so busy. Food was very good, could have been served hotter but they were short handed and our server did her best to accommodate. Overall we had a great dinner.

Took about 15 min after being seated for the waitress to take our drink order. The young lady was overwhelmed, and didn't understand some basic whiskey terminology. Sadly, no other employee cane to her rescue. The waitress told us up front a few dishes they were out of. One of our party ordered a white wine. Out of that. Another ordered a single malt scotch flight, and was brought a single barrel bourbon flight. Another ordered a Guinness and was accidentally brought two. Worked in our favor there. All in all a pleasant restaurant. Needs some fine tuning.

Pretty much the entire dining experience was sub-par. The hostess was indifferent/uninformed about how or when we might find a valet, and it was a very cold night to be sitting outside idling in the car; the staff were confused about who was responsible for our table; the food was average at best; the recommended wine by the glass was not very good. We did manage to spend a fair bit of money, though.
This is our second bad experience there. We won't be going back.

Gamlin Whiskey House had fantastic food and great service. It was slightly overpriced and probably not simply an everyday dining experience (more for special occasions or not so often visits), but the food was superb. We sat near the back bar and it was very loud - the music was playing too loud so it was hard to hear conversation, but sitting in the middle dining area probably would have been better. Good experience overall!

Food was ok-drinks good and fairly priced. One HUGE negative is the noise level; it's off the chart and nearly impossible to talk without shouting on a Saturday at prime time. The bar is the worst but the dining area is not far behind. I would not return for that reason.

Limited menu and expensive for the fair they had. $40 for beef medallions? Pot pie was tasteless that was more gravy than anything else. The server struggled with knowing the specials and what beers were on tap. Pretty bland interior dinning area. My wife and I enjoy fine dining and cocktails as our entertainment and never shy away from spending a good amount of money for a quality experience. We were not impressed at all. 2 entrees, with mine being the cheapest, and 2 cocktails with nothing else, $90 . . . WOW!

Open table reservation did not show at the restaurant. So instead we were put on the waitlist and we're seated 40 minutes after our reservation time. This is more of an open table app issue I'm sure.
As for the restaurant, it's very loud, and for what you get the food and drinks are extremely overpriced. This place only survives due to being located around a bunch of rich college kids blowing their parents money, anywhere else in the city the food would be half the price that is charged.

We had the best time at Gamlin. It was, by far, our favorite restaurant we tried during our long weekend in St. Louis. The food was AMAZING. If you love whiskey, this is obviously the place for you. The extensive drink menu was so awesome. So many whiskeys to choose from, and a very large whisky cocktail menu. We had the Kentucky Mule, The Bees Knees, and one more I cannot remember the name of, but all were spectacular. We left full and happy. The prices were not astronomical either. Definitely worth what we spent. Our server was very sweet, helpful, and personable. We could not have asked for anything more. Thanks for an amazing time!

Good selection of drinks/cocktails. Not many options for vegetarians. No real complaints other than the I felt my food was overpriced. My dinner was delicious, but could have found the same meal for half the price at other local restaurants.

This was out third visit to Gamlins and each one has been a blast. Great waiter and wonderful selections. We enjoy the bourbon and whisky lists as well. We had a party of 6 and shared two appetizers, the three little pigs bacon sampler, and toasted ravolis, and we also shared three desserts, the fried cookie, the ice cream and bourbon peach cobbler, all excellent

It would be nice it they have a small sample of the whiskey before you have to buy a $10 1.5oz drink. I wouldnt even care if they charged a $1 or $2 for the sample.
My steak i asked for medium rare and is was very rare. For the price your paying for thise steaks they were not worth it.
Texas Roadhouse beat this place on steaks!

I thought the food was fresh and expertly prepared. The steaks were done to perfection. The selection of wines, bourbons and scotch was great...but so were the prices. Three 2.5 ounce glasses should not cost the same as a bottle. But all in all, superior dining and service.

We love coming here when staying at the Chase Park Plaza, a short walk away. We stroll to dinner, have a few drinks, and enjoy dinner, then stroll back to our room. There is a great variety of wine and whiskey. Service is excelkent! Ask for Justin!

Acceptable but not special. A noisy, small bar area at entry. A small eating area. An odd bar beyond, empty (Friday 6-730) with high top tables for 6. Service pleasant. Interesting choices for drinks and food. But of the 3 entrees we had--pork steak, scallops, shrimp pasta--no one said "Wow!" We all enjoyed the kale salad. I expected--hoped for--a better overall experience.

The Caesar salad had obviously been prepared ahead of time as placed in a refrigerator; it had absolutely no flavor other than the croutons. The pork steak was very fatty and not very tender. The server brought my entree before I was even half way through my salad. When I commented on this, she didn't seem to know what to do or to really care.

This was my fourth trip to the Gamlin Whiskey house and probably my least favorable. I felt that the service was a little rushed and I understand that as a steak house most of the dishes don't incorporate vegetables into them and you are expected to order them as a side, but I didn't realize that until it was too late. The black ink salmon pasta really could have used some acid and some veggies. Too rich for me. Will of course come back though, as the drink list and ambiance are amazing!
