Gamlin Whiskey House Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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!
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.
