“Great eatery - inside and out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We have visited twice recently. This restaurant is in the historic Main Street area of St. Charles, in an old house, so keep that in mind if you have mobility issues. There are some stairs and several doorways to get into the different rooms. The first time we visited was a weeknight and it was well after 8 pm when we arrived, so I was a little concerned, but all went well. A large family group arrived after us, and a large "girls nite out" group, so they got very busy shortly after we arrived. This is not a real big place, but service was still good. Spouse had a strip steak and I had a French dip sandwich. Both were very good. My side was homemade chips, which I would not recommend - over-cooked and bland. But everything else was good. Next trip we ate outside on the patio, which is much larger than it appears from the street. Great atmosphere. Again, food was good. I would also have to recommend the desserts - yummy!

“Wait staff really seems to care......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We visited Bradden's before and after a 5 day bicycle ride on the Katy Trail. The wait staff was terrific and really seemed to genuinely care about our Bradden's experience. And the beer was pretty darn good, too. There is a reason it is ranked #1 in St. Charles by tripadvisor reviewers. We concur.

Had lunch on the patio mainly due to the high reviews. Great food and service. Price was good too. Would agree that
it is one of the better food establishments in St. Charles.

“Excellent Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

This is one of the best finds in the heart of Historic St Charles. I have taken many visitors there and everyone who has been there makes it a must go to for lunch or dinner when they are in town. Bradden's has one of the best Rueben sandwiches. Everyone in our group who has the Rueben raves about it. Steaks are very good and the Lobster Bisque soup is excellent!
Nicely priced, good wine list and fun beer selection too! The patio dining is awesome, service is always great!
