bar smelled a little funny when we were there.

Food was ok, and service wasn't amazing on this particular night. We ordered and had afew drinks then left. There was a sharp funky smell coming from the bar - not sure if it was the taps or the dishwasher.

I visited Square One Brewery & Distillery with the sole purpose of doing a beer and spirits tasting. I sat at the bar and dove in. The first bartender was pretty useless. Not very helpful. As I reviewed the menu’s for both beer and spirits, another bartender came to assist. He was very helpful and asked all the right questions.... More

Had a bit of a family gathering - made reservations for 8 - nice table, good wait staff, food was superb. The local beer did not do it for me, but the rest of the meal was really excellent. Parking was good and the vibe very nice

I visited Square One on a Sunday mid-afternoon in mid-December. I got a seat at the bar (big crowd - I did not see most of the brewery/restaurant). I had to be a bit aggressive to get a seat. I was treated to okay pub food and a couple of good/very good beers. The service is the best reason to... More

Awesome atmosphere, great place for a group, very good food and great beer. The location in Lafayette Square is near perfect. These folks know what a craft brewery is all about and do it right!

Okay, it was pouring down rain and gloomy but one soon forgot upon entering Square One Brewery! Although quite busy, the warm, welcoming hostess immediately made us forget the weather by assuring us being 10 minutes late was not a problem. They were glad we made it. Our server, Emily, was simply superb! Our coffee cups never got lower than... More

Great eatery, Tuesday is hamburger night. Great treat for $2 plus fixings. Try the gin and rum- very good. Don't know about the $30-50 range. Must be for two, find prices more reasonable.

We were actually wanting to try a different restaurant but it had a 2.5 hour wait so we had to decide on Square One Brewery, and what a great change of plans! We got the pretzel appetizer and the pretzels themselves were fantastic, but the cheese sauce could have been better and the mustard was decent. The cheese sauce should... More

Square One Brewery and Distillery (?) An unexpected gem in St Louis – one that I will continue to visit in the St Louis, as noted in a previous review, Schlafly’s has a serious competitor. Great beer selection and flavor (IPA is my favorite and it was very hoppy and flavorful; my colleague ordered the wheat ale, no complaint from... More
