Priority Pass Adds Two Restaurants At St Louis MO Lambert (STL) Airport

Priority Pass has added two new restaurants to their lounge network at St Louis MO Lambert  International Airport. They have added:

  • The Pasta House (Terminal One)
  • The Pasta House & Schlafly Beer (Terminal Two)

Both locations also require you to show a boarding pass with confirmed same-day travel.

The Pasta House (Terminal One)

This restaurant is located landside on the lower level pre security close to baggage claim. It’s opening hours are:

  • Friday Through Saturday: 10:00-18:00
  • Sunday: 10:00-20:00

Priority Pass members will receive $28 off their bill (if you bring a guest then you get $28 off per person).  Food menu can be found here. There is also a smoking area outside the restaurant.

The Pasta House & Schlafly Beer (Terminal Two)

This restaurant is located airside on the upper level through security on the right just opposite gate E6. It’s opening hours are:

  • Friday through Saturday: 6:00-18:000
  • Sunday: 6:00 – 22:00

Priority Pass members will receive $28 off their bill (if you bring a guest then you get $28 off per person). Food menu can be found here. They also have 10 styles of beer on tap.

Our Verdict

This is another airport that Priority Pass didn’t have a presence in. I really love the fact they are adding restaurant partners like this whenever they don’t have a presence and I assume none of the lounges want to partner with them. In a lot of cases I much prefer the restaurants to lounges as the food quality is significantly better (especially domestically). Recent additions include:

Big fan of this. Flying to STL for the holidays and will have quite a wait before I get picked up. T

Just in time. I’ll be there tomorrow and have a layover of 3 hrs.
Time to test out CSR perks.
Thanks for the timely post DoC 🙂

An overlay in STL?! You must be flying SWA, to either CLE OR RSW???

CongestionCharge, I’m impressed with your knowledge of Southwest’s network! As a Clevelander, I love that SWA now connects through STL. It is an easy airport to get around, and anytime there’s a way not to go through Chicago, I’m all for it!

do you pay with the CSR and then get reimbursed or do they just take the $28 off right then??

How it works in DEN at their restaurant:

Alert the waiter/waitress when you sit down.
At the end of the meal, they will call over a manager who has the Priority Pass terminal.
They will swipe your PP card and if you brought a guest and have the CSR, you get $56 off of your bill. This includes tax, so just make sure your total bill is under $56 if it is You+1.
You get your “check” which will have $56 taken off and you owe the remainder, plus a tip.

Hope that helps.

Just to reiterate, when I’ve been to Timberline at DEN they make it abundantly clear that the Priority Pass cannot be used for gratuity, and that they will accept a credit card for gratuity. Which I think is pretty nice since I typically like to save my cash. Plus earn those sweet sweet rewards.

When can the US be like East Asia/EU where there are no hidden fees and compulsory “gratuities?”

Required to swipe hard copy of PP card? Or, do they accept the mobile card through the app?

They took $28 off the entire bill.

Another reason to prefer the restaurants over lounges: they don’t turn you away as often (to my knowledge, at least). I’ve only been 1 for 4 at the Turkish Lounge at IAD, rest of the times have been pretty rudely told “no PP until 8pm.”

I used to dislike priority pass now I love it!

Yay! Some love for STL.

*Side note: The “free wifi” is provided by the airport, not the lounge which is why it is limited to 20 minutes. However, it is a Boingo hotspot so if your card has that as a benefit (or you actually pay for it), the wifi is completely free.

Times are listed for the wrong days. The current post implies that it’s only open 3 days per week, but they are open every day.

Terminal 1
10:00 – 20:00 Sunday – Friday
10:00 – 18:00 Saturday

Terminal 2:
06:00 – 22:00 Sunday – Friday
06:00 – 18:00 Saturday.

Oh man, this is great! Been waiting for STL to get a PP lounge and honestly this is even better (lounges are a nice place to sit down but much prefer restaurant food.

Haven’t been to locations in the airport, but Pasta House a pretty good local Italian chain.

I had heard rumors of a Wingtips lounge being added to Terminal 2 (the SW terminal) and that it would be PP; that was awhile ago though.

Question–I know the rules say you must show a boarding pass for same day travel. Does that mean that I can use my priority pass at eat at Pasta House when I arrive at STL as well as use it again when I leave STL? Can I take a pizza and wine to go?

dan

yes to the 2nd Q; not sure about the 1st…thinking that not likely if on the same day

I realize this is late but for posterity…

I was in Terminal 2 (Southwest), was able to use both outbound and inbound. They did not check boarding pass at all. Outbound I actually had my dad with me who didn’t have a boarding pass (had dropped off cousin at gate who’s unaccompanied minor) and I let them know, and they still said he was good. No idea if they’re this loose at T1 given it’s outside security, but possible.

Food was good. Service was fine but they were pretty busy. Lots of other ppl using PP…I’d guess it’s been very beneficial to the restaurant.

Also I was able to order a pizza to go. They don’t care what you order or what it’s for, they just take the $ off the check.
