My husband and I love to go here , especially for their happy hour! During happy hour most appetizers are 1/2 off and so are their pizzas. I recommend the bbq chicken pizza or the cheese pizza (I think it's a 5 cheese pizza) . We usually get an order of nachos also - it's a big portion and plenty... More

For several years we've been to Saint Charles for the Missouri Valley Conference women's basketball tournament, and in each of them, the Trailhead has been a wonderful place for a meal. And for those who like their beer, a nice spot for a craft brew or two. The menu is varied enough to satisfy all our palates, the service is... More

Situated only a few minutes walk from the Ameristar Resort and Casino, this is an enjoyable diversion. The beers are good: I sampled a few and settled on the Red, which is nicely bitter, and exquisitely 'hoppy'. The menu is fairly predictable for a micro-brewery, but there are options to suit most tastes. I had the smoked chicken breast, and... More

Nice atmosphere food above average but not great. Parking is a pain. This is a very touristy area with many many shops and many many people. Scenic. With the Missouri River just a few steps away. I'm not a beer drinker so I really can't judge that. Make sure you try the pretzels with beer cheese dip

Thanks for stopping by. Although I'm glad you enjoyed our atmosphere, I'm sorry you weren't more impressed with us overall. That said, I appreciate the honest review and hope you'll consider giving us another shot in the future. We've got a pretzel and beer cheese with your name on it. Take care, Bob, Owner More

I really enjoyed the set up of the restaurant and the different dining levels. The way each room was accented was very nice. The micro beer was great. I had ribs and beans. The beans were great. The ribs tasted good, but were so tough it was hard to get the meat off the bones. I hated that the city... More

Although it's great to hear you enjoyed our beers and restaurant itself, Shanadoaha, it's a shame that your overall experience was mixed. Thank you for the feedback on the ribs—I'll let the kitchen know. As for our smoking policy, I understand that this can be a turn-off for some customers, but it's also a big draw for others. Regardless, I... More
