St. Louis Food & Drink Guide

St. Louis has a surprisingly diverse and dynamic restaurant and bar scenes for a city of its size. I often get asked for recommendations by visitors (and even some locals), and thought it would be easier to compile a static list with links to different establishments. This list does not follow any particular order.




There is a lot of great BBQ in St. Louis. If you are only in town for a few days I typically recommend the following three. Bogart’s and Pappy’s have the best ribs in the city. The Shaved Duck is a full-service restaurant where you can eat while sitting down and having a drink.



Most of these breweries also offer great food.
