Three Flags Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Met some friends for brunch at Three Fla ...
Met some friends for brunch at Three Flags last Sunday and was thoroughly impressed. Ordered the beignets and the dutch baby to start, both were amazing, although the dutch baby was a standout. What is it? Its a sweet savory popover served with syrup and it is awesome. For my meal I had the Benedict which is presented simply (and perfectly) with a small side of fruit. The food was cooked to perfection and the drinks were hand crafted and delicious.

Service was a little slow and there were not many people there. My wife got the burger and it was very good. I got the ribeye and it was a little over cooked and the potatoes that came with were barely edible. Tasted only salt. If I go back I will do the burger.

Our meal was absolutely spectacular!! As a matter of fact, when our server inquired if everything was okay, I responded that she should tell the chef "HOLY S#!T...this has been the best combination of flavors that I have had in a very long time!!" We ordered the specials and we so far passed impressed!!! Keep it up Three Flags...you are getting noticed!!

This was our 3rd time and was disappointing. It is hard enough to get a reservation and when you finally get one, that is not at 5:00 or 9:00, should be happy. We were greeted warmly and decided to sit in the bar because it was quiet and a bit more casual and we generally find the service better than in the dining room. We were greeted by the bartender who was great but started us off with a list of ALL THE ITEMS THEY WERE OUT OF. The list was considerable, and I would say it was nearly 20% of the already small menu. That was disappointing and set an overall mood for the evening. The burger, eggs and tacos were all fair - not that good and for the price not much of a value. The service was good however, I will would be hesitant to go back considering there are so many great restaurants in St. Louis.

Horrendous service. Everyone was stressed out and making the table very uncomfortable. Took over an hour to get appetizers. Food had little flavor. Disappointing night. Will never go back. I bet they are out of business within 6 months. Something seems wrong at this place.

When it comes to service, this staff went above and beyond to make sure our party enjoyed our evening. They pay close attention to detail and it did not go overlooked. Thank you, Three Flags Tavern Staff! We shall return!

Appetizers (tacos and lobster beignets) were fantastic. I got the shrimp étouffée, which was quite good but had a little more of the cheddar grits and less of the roux than I would have preferred. My wife's brisket burger, ordered medium, was raw inside. The server noticed it and asked if she would like a new burger. My wife said yes. The owner bought her a drink as an apology, and also came and talked to us at the end of our meal. Very nice. The meal was more expensive than we usually go for—but we had a $100 gift certificate. Total bill was $80 (included two drinks), and we were allowed to tip with the gift certificate as well, which was nice; some places won't let you do that.

The chef is innovative. We had sea bass there on Friday. The dish was among the best we'd had in a long time. A wonderful blend of flavors, innovative use of fresh vegetables, not overloaded with cream and butter. Really delicious.

We had a wonderful meal at Three Flags. Very inventive takes on burgers, steaks, and salads. The fish is the finest quality I have had in St. Louis. Some real gems on the wine list, too. Ask for Adrian, a superb server.

Full disclosure: we love Three Flags. But you have to have more than a welcoming environment and staff to merit return visits. The food is the star here, and this visit did not disappoint. I opted for their signature fried chicken with housemade biscuits, pickles, and bacon-sautéed kale. But my companions opted for the sea bass special, perfectly prepared and served over a corn sous vide, blistered tomatoes, and sautéed spinach. 3F does NOT rest on its laurels and simply serve the same good things over and over. That's the mark of a great restaurant.

Had to return the food twice- never done that before but it was BAD. Waiter was a bit smart Alec but after he tasted he was apologetic. The wine list was good and dessert was also good. Service was slow and several in our party were upset by waiter's attitude. He did not tell the prices of the specials and offered a "good value" Pinot Noir that was $180. Overall disappointed because our first trip there had been better.

Three Flags is always a high-quality experience, but this night had a special oomph thanks to a dinner special lamb burger. Lamb gets dry real quick, but this burger was thick and juicy and bursting with flavor. Topped with a rich sauce and pickled zucchini (instead of pickles from cucumbers) plus a housemade bun, AND fries with special cumin catchup, it was a standout.

I took a group of friends out to brunch and we had the best time! Our server was outstanding, the ambiance was lovely, and the food was incredible.
We started with beignets, poutine, and the melon salad, and for entrees had the steak and eggs, benedict, and the American breakfast
10/10 will go again... SOON!

I have been here three times, twice for brunch and once for dinner. The food was good the other evening. The Shrimp and Grits was a winner, but our thought was, why only a little bit of grits? The beer and wine selections are a great surprise. The burgers are huge if you're a hunger you one!

I received an email around 4:00 on Sunday stating that you were open from 5:00-9:00 but closed on Monday. I quickly made a reservation on Open Table and we were seated by 5:30. An excellent spontaneous meal with good service as well. A great Ribeye steak.

We went on a Tuesday evening and it was not crowded at all which was a pleasant surprise. We ordered the chicken wings as an appetizer. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about everything on the menu. She suggested a couple of the specials, I ordered the ribeye rubbed with a coffee and chocolate mix and my wife got the Cornish hen. Both items were excellent and cooked to perfection. Unfortunately we did not save room for dessert but there is always next time! The menu is not large but it is diverse and there really is something for everyone. I highly recommend this place!

Second time here for brunch, and everything was delicious again. Our group stayed with the menu items although the specials were tempting. Our favorites include the burger, omelet of the day, french toast which is so crispy outside yet custardy inside, beignets, and the biscuit with devonshire cream and pineapple jam is divine. Excellent bloody mary's and mimosas. Julia is a superb server. We were happy to be greeted this time by a manager at the host stand rather than ignored and treated rudely by the surly female bartender who was front of house on our last visit. We almost walked out because of that bartender on our first time here. Glad we didn't because the food is outstanding and the wait staff impeccable. Highly recommend!

This was probably the 4th time we have been there. I must say it was not as up to par as the others. I did notice the owner was not there so maybe that had something to do with it. I also think they need more waitstaff.

I really like 3 Flags - the food is very good, the menu is not very big but nicely varied. I enjoyed the mussels and others said they liked the lobster beignets. The special salad and the cauliflower dish were both wonderful! The only complaint is it is noisy inside (all hard surfaces so sounds of clatter & chatter is not absorbed) and service is nice but a wee bit on the slow side.

On our last day in St. Louis, we had midafternoon Sunday brunch at the Three Flags Tavern. We found the restaurant and a parking place without too much trouble. It wasn’t very busy. Nevertheless, the service was agonizingly slow. The brunch menu was standard and we both had the omelets, which were quite good. There’s an outdoor patio (where we did not sit, preferring to be inside) which looked like it had a few more people and a bar that looks like it’s a happening place in the evenings. We’re sure the restaurant is a better option for dinner and we’ll try it for that the next time we’re in town.
