I was with a group, we had reservations, they had given our table to another large party (assuming it was us, not even checking) then had to scramble to fit us into the space they had left. The food was good enough, the service was average. THEN due to the large group, they added gratuity to each ticket, which I... More

Mentioned in AAA Magazine as having great burgers. Front of bar is a little noisy. We like sitting in the back (non-smoking area) and looking out at the river. My husband, who is a burger connoisseur, stated "best burger I've ever had". Highly recommend.

Great cheese bacon fries. I like the steak sandwich. Lots of variety. Nice view of the Riverfront area from backroom. Main seating area is in the bar and a little noisy.

This is a neighborhood bar with ok food and ok service. But it beats some other places on Main street hands down for service.

My girl is a bit of a wing freak and she flipped over these. "Maybe the best ever! " she said. She was more impressed than me but I liked them a lot! The bartender was easy going and fun. The beers were cold. The atmosphere got a little strange around 9pm as the demographics shifted to the college age... More

Have dined at Big A's for dinner twice. It's a bar with a an above average food menu located in the historic Main St. area of St. Charles. Get 1/2 off appetizers during Happy Hour, 4-6pm. Daily dinner specials. Good variety of tap beers. Servers are very attentive usually. Price is lower than a standard restaurant, i.e. Applebee's, Olive Garden.... More

Just a good ole fashion local pub with good wings and cold beer that is frequented by the locals. Nothing to great but nothing bad either.

St. Charles has several interesting, unique and high quality restaurants and bars. Big A's is NOT one of them. The food is nothing you can't make at home, with ingredients you buy at the local grocery store for a small fraction of the cost. The portions are small: the ration of bread to meat and cheese on my corned beef... More

Good place to watch sports and enjoy a moderate priced meal. Burgers, wings, sandwiches all good. I give it fewer star only because I'm waiting for St. Charles to go non-smoking. That is one of their biggest disadvantages to dining in St. Charles. All of St. Louis County has gone non-smoking and their business haven't been hurt so I'd like... More

This is a mainstay establishment on Main Street in the bar district. The menu is about what you'd expect from a pub, but the quality is better than most. It's smaller inside but the atmosphere is great. They even have a back dining area if you want more room or privacy. Great local joint! Try the fried clams - we... More
