Atmosphere is interesting. Apparently, this used to be the print shop for the local Herald newspaper. There are racks of print blocks and posters of vintage issues on the walls. They've even embedded letters into the table varnish. The food and service are good too....Definitely check out this place.More

After a harrowing trip on I-70, we found ourselves approaching Collinsville at dinnertime. I searched for a restaurant with a patio and this was first. My cocktail was delightful, but most importantly my salad was made with fresh greens. I had a mahi wrap that...was also fresh and tasty. The patio was on the east side of the restaurant and there was abundant shade. My husband’s beer, “The Weekend Addition,” is a good wheat beer. The Pub Salad gets two thumbs up. The bacon ranch salad dressing is delightfully tangy. For what was a last minute desperation stop for dinner, this turned out to be a wonderful meal. If we are in the area again, we will plan on eating at The Old Herald Brewery.More

Place was busy, waitress seemed a little irritated I didn’t order alcohol. It took almost 45 minutes to get our food. My husband never got the salad he ordered. Server didn’t offer to refill our drinks. My husband ordered a lager she recommended, very good....Prime rib sandwiches were really good Overall not a great experience. They are very short staffedMore

This is a favorite. Good food, interesting beers and great service. Also, a bonus - interesting decor. It was the actual building were the Collinsville Herald was composed and printed and the building reflects that history. One more thing. They don't have a lot of...vegetarian, but what they do have is pretty good. It keeps us coming back.More

Our waitress was very friendly, and tentative. I ordered the Jam Session, and my wife ordered the Herald Burger. Both were cooked to our specifications. We both were satisfied. Happy to know, they grow their own vegatables, and herbs on the premisis.

Server was nice and polite and the atmosphere was pleasant. Food took forever to get to our table. Drinks were marginal at best. Would not recommend to any one looking for decent food.

We went here for a date night and it was a casual and intimate space perfect for our e ending out. There is an eclectic selection on the menu which gave a great variety of options, but beware the portions are large - definitely recommend...sharing appetizers or dessert because you will be way to full otherwise. There in-house beer and spirit selection was great, and they have the usual types of beer with a few interesting twists thrown in. Very clean and adheres to COVID protocols, service was friendly and excellent, parking can be a little tough on busy nights.More

We've reviewed many breweries and brewpubs and this one was just OK. We came in the evening and our first impression is that it was VERY BRIGHT, as in too bright, especially sitting at the bar. They brew and serve their own beers so it's...a small selection of draft beer, but what they had was good. Prices on the beer were average. We shared the BBQ flatbread pizza, which the bartender raved about, and it was good, nothing remarkable at all. And very small for the price. The menu is small, sandwiches, appetizers and salads. There was room for about 10 people at the bar, not as many during COVID-19. About 18 tables. They had live music which nice. No TVs. It's an industrial-style place that's very clean on the inside.More

Old Herald is outstanding... We’ve only lived in IL for less than a year, and this is our favorite brewery in the area. The atmosphere is great, the bier garden Is awesome, good food, great service, and unbelievable 🍺. We lived in Germany for 5...years, went to Munich Oktoberfest and Stuttgart Beer Fest 4 times, and Old Herald’s bier is unquestionably on par with what we drank in the motherland, and that’s no exaggeration... All their biers are excellent, and their Oktoberfest bier is unbelievable. Simply put, when in the area, Old Herald is a must visit 🍺🍺More

Just moved in here from Ohio, and it was recommended by neighbors to try Old Herald... Felt now would be as good a time as ever to support a local restaurant. I had the bone in wings, Greek salad, black ale, and hoppy pale ale......The food was excellent, the beer was outstanding, and the curbside service was great. Ohio is an unknown craft beer Mecca, especially the Dayton area, and Old Herald is easily as good as anything we had in the Dayton area. This place is a “must try”, if you’re new to the area 👍🏻👍🏻More

Four of us went and enjoyed our meal. Limited menu and mainly pub type fare. We all had plenty to eat. Food takes a while to get to table, I think you are supposed to drink beer or liquor while waiting.
