When I tried to call the restaurant 2 hours before my reservation to change the number of diners, phone disconnected! Learned online that the restaurant was permanently closed. Very unprofessional of the restaurant owners and of Open Table not to inform reservation holders!
We booked the reservation with Open Table, had it confirmed, and when we showed up the restaurant had closed!!!! There was a note in the window from some law firm. Good of them to let their customers' know. We had an out of town visitor and it was embarrassing. We decided to try Atlas when we couldn't go to Three Flags, only to discover that it too had recently closed. Our visitor now wonders about St. Louis. We finally went to Lorenzo's and had a very good meal.
Had a reservation, confirmed for 6:30 P.M. March 7. Was taking an 86 year old woman to dinner.
Used Uber for her convenience. She is alert and a restaurant connesiur often arranging for groups of 20 or more for dinner. Imagine my consternation to arrive on time to find the restaurant closed and dark with no notice on the door!
Thank God the Uber Driver waited for us and helped us find another restaurant in a different locality.
There was no attempt made for an explanation even though my telephone number was on file.
As usual, our experience was first-rate. This is at least the 8th time my husband and I have dined at Three Flags, and we have never been disappointed. My husband enjoyed the succulent fried chicken (a regular menu item, one he has ordered before), and I ordered the scallop special. I order scallops often when dining out, and can tell you that there are many ways to fail in preparing them. Three Flags' plate was beautiful to look at, but even better tasting. The flavors of the perfectly seared scallops were artfully balanced by a zucchini and butternut squash sauce, and both were enhanced by the small bed of barley risotto on which they rested. The portion size was exactly right, leaving me satisfied but not overly stuffed. The field green salad and carnitas tacos were great choices for starters -- we will definitely order them both again. Our server was attentive and friendly, but not invasive, and our water glasses were never empty. Overall, an A+ experience again at Three Flags Tavern.
We arrived 10 minutes before the official opening, though there were people on the patio and at the bar. The hostess checked us in, then left. I had to find her ten minutes later and ask why we were not seated. Once we got to our table the waitress came over and took our order, they did not have the beer that was on the menu.
Our burgers were just "ok", nothing special. It was very disappointing, bad service and poor food. I do not plan to go back . Very overpriced!!
I have been to Three Flags many times, but must admit I was very disappointed in part of my meal this past Sunday. The lobster beignets were outstanding, as always, but then we ordered three burgers and one lobster roll. All were dry, overcooked, perhaps sitting under a heat lamp too long. I'm sure this was a one off since we are always very happy with our meal there. The young lady who served us was great.
Everything was spectacular from allowing us to move tables because it was so cold, to every single bite of the Duck L'orange small plate special, to Lydia, the knowledgeable sweet and just-attentive-enough server.
I can honestly say, I nearly ordered a second duck dish because I didn't want to ever be without that flavor again!
I was in the mood for a good burger, and 3FT delivered in spades. Thick and juicy, with well-chosen accents, a superb housemade bun, plus excellent fries with a spicy housemade cumin ketchup. The friendly and attentive service is just "gravy" on a excellent meal in a comforting environment.
The service , which was not the waitresses fault, was pretty bad. We ordered drinks and it took about 25 minutes before they arrived. After that it improved. My meal was almost inedible. It was shrimp etouffe and the shrimp still had shells and heads on, which usually no big deal, but it was in grits so it was impossible the get the meat out. The flavor of this dish was good. The rest of my party enjoyed there food.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meals - the fried chicken, brisket burger, and shrimp e'touffe were outstanding. Our server was pleasant and recommended a mixed tequila-based cocktail that was tasty. We had an issue, however, with our payment which has caused a banking issue with one member of our party that has now run three days. Overall, I strongly recommend Three Flags Tavern for anyone seeking an affordable but eclectic dining experience.
I love this restaurant. I have always enjoyed creative delicious food at this little gem. Saturday night however I was disappointed. The steak Diane was tough and the sauce was not what I am used to with this preparation. The potato croquette was very salty and I usually love this side. Salad was excellent and so was dessert. Our waiter was over-bearing we felt rushed through the whole meal. I will return to eat here because any place can have an off-night
Just had an awesome dinner here. Friendly staff, amazing appetizers, salads, entrees and drinks.
We started with wings, both had salads, we had the pork tenderloin and the burger as entrees.
Great drinks. Highly recommend the Hemingway Daiquiri.
Surprisingly great experience.
Very interesting menu, attached as a pic..
Check it out. Very nice and cozy venue...probably only about 12 tables. Plus the bar area.
We typically go to Frazer's and this was a nice alternative. Really enjoyed it.
We love this restaurant but had a disappointing experience on Friday. It was primarily due to the service. Typically we are served by one of two female servers both of whom are delightful. Friday it was a male who was not interested in our party at all. His indifference set the tone for the evening. Three of the four of us had a fair meal while one was delicious. This is also unusual. We usually have excellent food and service and that is why we keep returning.
We will return but perhaps not as quickly.
We really like Three Flags and have been there several times. The food is creative, very good and they have a good assortment of local craft beer. We ate there most recently on a Tuesday and it was very quiet , probably only 4 tables. The service was so incredibly slow that we missed our speaker series. The food was great but no idea how hard it was to cook 3 salads , a burger, a steak and some small plates as entrees. We just gave up on making our seats and stayed and enjoyed dessert . We still love this neighborhood restaurant. It was the first time we dined there that the owner wasn't there checking in with everyone. Maybe that was the issue. They also have a great patio and a great brunch. Just don't be in a hurry.....
