Gamlin Whiskey House Ratings and Reviews

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 prep ...
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!

A long list of Whiskeys and an interesting Cocktail menu welcomed us. Our waiter was excellent. The food was pricey but very good. We had an appetizer, steaks, and dessert. Every bite was delicious and the experience was worth the price. We will be back with friends this fall.

We had a lovely brunch at Gamlin Whisky House. We sat out on the patio, which was crowded, but offered great street views in a busy, historic neighborhood - the Central West End. Everyone enjoyed their food and drinks. Everything was really fresh and well-crafted. The menu is an excellent collection of classic brunch fare and unique dishes. There is a good blend of savory and sweet options and some sharable options have been identified for family-style dining, which is really fun at brunch. Overall we had a great experience and loved Gamlin Whiskey House!

My in-laws visited and this is where my wife and I took them. We went here for lunch before and figured we would try dinner. Everything was amazing. No one was disappointed. We are new to the St Louis area, but this is our favorite so far!

There for a family dinner visiting our son in college. Great time. Pace of service was excellent. Cocktail selection amazing- drinks we had were very good. Bread board outstanding. Entrees prepared well, but was surprised lobster wasn't served with a melted butter option (dipping sauces were two other choices neither my son or husband cared for). Joe, our waiter, did a fantastic job. We will be back

We sat outside and enjoyed the sights and sound of the CWE. My STL Porksteak was tender and crazy-good. My wife had the Sea Bass and it did not disappoint. A couple of tasty bourbons would complete our great night!

Our experience at Gamlin Whiskey House on Friday was wonderful. It was my birthday and I selected the spot where I wanted to celebrate with my wife and two other couples. Emily helped us in the bar with outstanding cocktails and wine. She was fantastic. Our meal was excellent. We all had steaks with various sides and no one had any complaints. One of my friends enjoyed an order of mussels, as well. The only disappointment, which Gamlin couldn't control, was the weather. It was raining steadily so we didn't have a chance to enjoy the large patio. Next time!

We received a gift card for this restaurant and were very much looking forward to it. The service was excellent, however, we ordered a $70 steak - and although it had a good taste--it was full of grizzle. We do not normally pay these kind of prices when dining--and really felt we could have had a better steak for at least half the price elsewhere. Will not be returning.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal for our anniversary. We loved the extensive bar menu and whiskey recommendations from our waiter. The menu had so many great sounding options that we will be back again soon. I opted for the scallops and lobster risotto and my husband had the beef medallions. Everything was cooked to perfection. We also enjoyed the bread pudding to finish off the great main dishes and tasty appetizer.

The food was outstanding! We had brunch and everything was delicious. Highly recommend the shrimp po boy, banana strawberry waffle and the deep fried filet. We tried a little of everything and got sides as well. The decor is great too and we had a great server!

What a great atmosphere and a cool new restaurant. We went there on a Monday night and it was absolutely beautiful outside and the service was excellent. Some of us had seafood specials, some of us had steaks and the three fat pigs appetizer was delicious. The beer and whiskey didn't hurt either. Highly recommended.
