Recommend sitting outside and enjoying the scenic little waterfall. Crab cakes, chicken fingers and burgers were delicious! Wonderful cocktails! The service was also wonderful!

We visited Square One as the first dinner stop on a two-family weekend in StL. The kids (four of them under the age of 8) had all just finished up four hour car rides, and to say they were all over the place would be putting it mildly. The staff was very patient and friendly, even though our table was... More

By far my favorite craft beer in St. Louis as I love really good food with great beer. And the staff is great, especially Nikki behind the bar everyday for lunches! But your bound to get good service from the entire staff there as I have with Sara, Abbey,Emily, Stephanie, Kevin, John,Mike, Brian.... I am sure I am forgetting others.... More

When the weather cooperates, the patio here is the perfect setting for a long and leisurely lunch with friends. Menu has a bit of everything....wrap, soup, salad, sandwich ,pasta, fish all cooked and served to perfection. Service was excellent...attentive when necessary but not hovering. And of course, cannot leave out a mention of the delicious beers and spirits. Overall, just... More

This was a great restaurant, very accommodating, and wonderful food and drink. We were a large table but did not feel crowded. Would definitely go again

Cut rate prices on shrimp and oysters (and wine, of course) made this a terrific way to start the weekend!

Went there for Father's Day 2016 with my son. Selected a plank of 4 6oz samples. Great options of beers to select from. Many flavor directions. Food menu is not "pub food" but restaurant quality. I had the salmon BLT and he had the bub burger. Excellent on both. Freshly baked buns - yum. Service was just right.

I am really liking the Lafayette Square area. Beautiful restored buildings and a nice vibe. Very nice selection of spirits. I had an IPA as I am want to do and it was good if not great. It's a lovely building and a great place to just hang out. I had the salad with apples,walnuts etc and it was very... More

I've never been disappointed. It works for a business meeting, dinner with the family, and business meetings. There's a variety of seating - bar, indoor, and all weather patio. The menu is varied and they pair the entrees with their regular & seasonal beers. A good go-to spot.

Had a great experience for dinner at Square One. It was a hockey game night and it was loud but it was a lot of fun. Drink specials and great food. Good family atmosphere too.
