I tried a simple hamburger, but it really was the best I ever had! They are cooked on wood fire and ingredients are phenomenal. I will definitely come back!

The beer, whiskey and other libations are brewed and distilled on premises so you have to give them a try. Loved the J J Newkomm whiskey so much we brought a bottle home with us. The atmosphere in the pub is jovial and neighborly. Bartenders and waitresses are a hoot! The food is nothing less than awesome. Do NOT miss... More

Nice restaurant just off of Lafayette Square. Good location near downtown and close to highways. Easy to find. Parking across the street. We tried out two flights of beer and some of the beers were real standouts. I applaud them for putting out so many types of beers and attempting to be creative with their beer menu. They also have...

Decided to order the shrimp, crab meat omelet and grilled potatoes. All I can say is wow. One of the best omelets I've ever had. Whoever is their omelet chef, you Rock! Also got the oatmeal....

I went with the game burger (elk) with blue cheese, a gigantic onion ring, and honey sriracha on the side. Burger was amazing and thick, hand cut fries... More

Very easy to find, great location. Cool old building, very good menu, food and service too! Nice atmosphere. Must be dog friendly which because we saw one while dining in the outside seating. That's cool with us. Good prices too. Would highly recommend and would definitely go back.

I visited Square One on a Friday night for dinner. The place was filled with families eating dinner some with little ones. The place has a great family feel and I enjoyed the Philly style flank steak sandwich with one of their micro bourbons and one of their IPA’s. The front area seemed full on walking in but was led...
