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.

The outdoor seating at The Office makes this place one of my favorite for dinner. The center bar has a fire pit type middle that gives a nighttime ambience that rivals no other. Plus, the outdoor seating is on Main Street so you get to see Downtown St Charles which is beautiful in itself. The food is typical American cuisine,... More

We've been reluctant to go here given all the reviews about poor service. We went on Saturday about 12:30. We wanted to sit outside but were told the only tables available were directly in the sun. Not sure why they have some tables with umbrellas and some without but we chose inside. We were seated immediately and have no complaints... More

We were visiting family that live in St Charles. They raved about the food and atmosphere. We sat on the patio- it was hard to hear conversation because of the street noise. The patio could use some cleaning. The service was prompt but we were early at 5. The meals were typical bar food- portions big. My husband and I... More

Food and wine were very good, although the size of the portions are just too big in my opinion. Bar staff were great - Abby is a blast!

My husband and I went to lunch here. We decided to sit inside which had about 3 full tables. We waited about 20 min for waitress, who had a piercing on her face, which turns me off in a restaurant. Ordered wings, they were good, husband waited forever for a beer, we ordered our food and it took over 30... More

During the months when you can sit on their beautiful patio, the slow service is worth the wait. And you need to be sure to read about the history of the building. Very interesting. But. . . . it gets really noisy and crowded inside in the evening so it's not the place to go on a date or if... More

First of all I have been to this restaurant several times and have finally decided I will not be going back! Each time I have walked in I have been greeted by miserable hostesses at the front desk. They don't even look at you or acknowledge that you've walked in. And when they finally do they have that look on... More

I have been to this restaurant and remembered the food was actually pretty good but the service was really slow. I went on Memorial Day and sat on the patio. The people on the side of me were complaining how slow service was they left in a huff. A few minutes later I realized the family next to us were... More

The Office has an enclosed outdoor area, which opens up in the summer. It is a great place to enjoy a drink with friends. Food is good but the service leaves much to be desired - and has since it opened.
