This was our tour group's second successful visit to Square One. Today we offered five of their menu items, called them in a few hours prior and the day went smooth as silk. Felicia was our attentive server who spoke with me prior to arrival to be certain they had it all prepared for us. Dr. John Witte, the brewmaster,... More

A group of friends came here for a dinner celebration based on someone's recommendation. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. 3 of us ordered the shrimp and grits and we absolutely LOVED it!! The chef is from Jamaica so it was very tasty. I have been to Savannah which is known for it's shrimp and grits,... More

We sat in the beer garden during our recent visit. They have a very interesting fountain that was made out of the door to a bank. We had more of a snacking dinner -- onion rings and a salad. Both were very good. We had the single malt scotch ale which was disappointing and the Stout which was better. Great... More

Square One is a place we have gone several times when visiting St. Louis. If it's not busy and you order carefully you'll have a great time. This last time we went, however, it was a Sunday night when they are one of the few restaurants open in Lafayette Square. It was very busy and our waitress seemed overwhelmed. The... More

Over the course of a couple of trips this spring, my girlfriend and I have visited 6 area breweries, and both of us tabbed Square One as our favorite beer. We did not try any of the food, but did try atleast 8 of the beers across a number of styles. We sat at the bar, and were happy with... More

Cool atmosphere. Old building with nice stone work. Food was ok. We especially enjoyed the Scotch eggs. Service was good. Beer was delicious. The outdoor seating looked beautiful. They are a combined brewery and distillery; we only tried and enjoyed the beer.

I was looking for a quick bite and stopped by Square One Brewery as a suggestion from the coffee house nearby. I walked in, spoke with the hostess, ordered the chicken sandwhich, waited a few minutes and got my order. I didn't expect much, but overall it was good. At first sniff, you smell a light burn smell but you... More

The good reviews here made us check this place out, but the food was disappointing, even though I ordered something the server recommended, the Cassoulet, it was bland and mostly just a bowl of beans. The pulled pork sandwich my husband has was better. The beer was good. I liked the pretty neighborhood, but would try a different place next... More

Brussels sprout salad was what drew me in and I was not disappointed. I had not seen had such a refreshingly imaginative menu in years, well, frankly since Swakopmund, Namibia 8 years ago. The outdoor dining was just right for conversation around the table and the wait staff was attentive but not pests. As for the beer, my husband had... More
