However, the beverage list is great, as is the overall ambiance and service! Will go back, if only for drinks and appetizers.

My wife and I were in the area after some errands in St. Charles. Ended up getting a haircut across the street (Avenue 2), then settling in to the Office. Great spot! I had the Ruben with onion rings, my wife tried the burger & fries. Both of us tried the pretzel app. Everything was fantastic. Nice atmosphere, great service... More

Nice environment. It was a cozy place with a nice fireplace to have dinner at on a really cold night. Enjoyed the food and the service.

This was my second visit to The Office. The food and service was awesome. I was attending a concert just in the area and The Office was only 1 block away. I had mixed greens salad and buffalo shrimp. If in the area again I will definitely fine here again.

Just had lunch there, first time sine they reopened after their kitchen fire in late august. Same menu, same staff (it seems). I had the grilled buffalo chicken sandwich, which is grilled, and quite large. It was tasty. I usually get fish tacos, blackened, which I really like. My kids always like the pretzel stick appetizer. Inwould rate them 3.5... More

Stopped in for a quick bite after work. We were pleasantly surprised by the food. I had blackened fish tacos which were excellent and my husband had a whitefish which was surprisingly good. Dessert selections were better than expected. Great atmosphere, ample seating and room upstairs for larger parties.

The food at The office is very good....excellent rubens, great nacho appetizer. Unfortunately, since they had the fire, the restaurant still smells of smoke. You don't really notice it when you're in there, but when you get home, you notice the smell in your hair and clothes. They really need to fix this issue...maybe they hurried to open back up...

The food here was good but not great. Portions were big but nothing to write home about. Very large beer selection and bar area had great atmosphere. I'm most likely to return here strictly for drinks.

Enjoyed dining here. The patio area is lovely. Service is good and the food is first rate. This is a nice place to sit back and relax. Also attended a private party here in the last year and it was beautifully done with top notch appetizers, etc.
