Great food selection. Don't forget to check out their many offerings of microbrews. We ate here while staying right in the St. Charles Historic District. You won't be disappointed.

Myself and a guest walked in for dinner. I requested a table for dinner. The hostess somewhat annoyed told me we could eat at the bar. I explained to the hostess we preferred not to eat dinner sitting at a bar and re-requested a table. The hostess refused to offer us a table without saying why. We chose not to... More

This is obviously not what we like to see, and I apologize, Andrew. You should be able to sit wherever you'd like, and we have no qualms about two people sitting at a table. It's baffling as to why this would happen, and again I apologize. We'd love to have you back in and seat you wherever you'd like. All... More

I used to be a regular years ago when this place opened and up until 2002 or so. This was always a stop after riding on the Katy trail for a few beers and food. Moved away since that time. Went back to take my wife there told her how great the place used to be. BIG MISTAKE!! Since that... More

As you can imagine, this is a very troubling review to read. It's always upsetting to hear a regular feels the place isn't what it used to be. For that, and for you feeling you were treated rudely, I apologize. We take concerns like yours seriously, and your input's important to us so we can move forward and do our... More

I came in during happy hour and it was packed. I sat at the bar and the male bartender suggested the Spiced Pumpkin ale. It was pretty good. I waited quite awhile before someone asked if I wanted to order. Appetizers were 1/2 off during Happy Hour so I ordered the ale battered asparagus. I was not a fan of... More

Trailhead used to be one of my favorite restaurants but I haven't been for a while. The decor is trendy. The staff friendly and efficient. The food not so good. We had the pretzels for an appetizers. They were still frozen in the middle. The server got them replaced but by then our meals were starting to arrive. The ribs... More

It's disappointing to hear a regular like yourself wasn't happy with their meal. It sounds like your meal wasn't the level of quality we expect it to be, and I apologize for that. We'd love to earn you back and show you that our food can match our staff and decor. Sincerely, Bob, Owner More

We weren't looking for a brewery but the food smelled great and we were hungry. The host seated us immediately, which was the only good experience with this place. We were seated in a very noisy area, making conversation difficult. Our server struggled with the tables in her section - our food took almost 45 minutes and she blamed it... More

I'm sorry to hear you weren't impressed with your experience! Good food is nothing without quality service, and it's disappointing to read this review, as you can imagine. Our service is much more than what you experienced, and if you're ever back in the area come by and we'll show you what we can do. Take care, Bob, Owner More

We came in not expecting too much, especially after the dinner experience we had in St. Charles the evening before. The experience began with the hostess, when she cheerfully changed out table upon our request. It continued with our awesome waitperson, Julie B., when she cheerfully moved us again to a room we spotted that overlooked the park and the... More

I hit this place after arriving in town much later than expected. The menu was great, and everything we ordered for take out was good. We had burgers, salads, and items off of the kids menu. They have a very nice selection of beers, which added to the experience. I would visit here again when in town.

It took you a while to get to us, but we're delighted to hear you liked it when you finally did. It sounds like the food hit the spot, and we hope you got to try some beers. We've got plenty, so be sure to come back and try some of the different varieties. Cheers, Bob, Owner More

I had the ribs. Like the title says, very good, but not great. Ample portion but ribs were a bit dry. I could have used a bit more sauce. I suppose I could have asked for more. I'll have to say the BBQ beans were the best part of the meal (5 star). Mediocre slaw. Great atmosphere. People I was... More

We gotta say we're happy about the beans, Al, but we really want that title of best ribs. Of course, without your review, we wouldn't have been able to work toward that goal -- so thanks for your feedback. Next time you're here, try a beer! We want to share our love for beer with you.
