A great place to unwind with a drink or grab a beer and a bite with friends. I've met friends and business associates on the patio on more than one occasion. We have yet to have a poor experience.

Great food but a bit on the pricier side. The out sort seating is awesome! A large selection of beers and wines.

We stopped here for dinner and drinks. We sat outside. Service was fair. Food was good. Basic menu. Atmosphere was great. Firepits were lovely. They kept the bugs away on a summer night

Used to like to come here when this space was McNally's Pub. Change of ownership and menu aside, this is still a good watering hole in downtown St. Charles. Service and food are both good and you don't feel like your being rushed so they can turn a table.

I stopped in with my daughter to have dinner before a concert at the Arcada Theatre. We both really enjoyed our meals and had a very responsive server. The only thing I didn't appreciate was the intoxicated patron at the bar who was making loud comments to his buddy in reaction to a sporting event on TV and cursing. I... More

We go regularly because, inspite of the traffic noise, we enjoy the space and ambiance of the bar and patio. Nice place to come for drinks. The nachos are excellent, otherwise food is mediocre, nothing to write home about. At our last visit on July 25th we order from the food menu. Apparently there is a separate drink menu and... More

We have tried every Friday throughout this summer to go to The Office on Fridays for the Fish of the Day. We sit outside which has a higher noise level due to the traffic. We have always had excellent service that is quick and friendly making an enjoyable afternoon or evening. The fish, just plain excellent, cooked to perfection. This... More

Nice attractive space with a nice patio. It's a little loud on the patio because it's on the street, but that's OK. I recommend doing the 1/2 and 1/2 lunch special, you'll get to sample more.

I have been to the office several times and with the exception of their substantial salads I have been slightly underwhelmed by the food flavor and quality. Our last visit was disappointing as none of the speciality beers on the menu were available and we were offered some less desirable options. In the end it is a great location and... More
