Something for everyone..
The menu was diverse. The dancing pig was fun for everyone. The food was delicious except my sons plain cheeseburger had some spice to it? Although, I enjoyed it in my lunch the next day. Our server was more than accomodating! A nice location to walk it off after all the great food!

The food is really good. My sister and I split a 2 meat combo..turkey and brisket, both very good. A few problems though. Our server wasn't very good. She was very standoff-ish, she would disappear for long periods of time and when she would actually come to our table, she would just stand there for a while and start every sentence or question with "I'm sorry.." Strange. Also, she told us that getting this combo meal with two sides would be cheaper than getting two small plates of meat and one side, so we went with her suggestion..when we got the bill, it was $5 more than what it was supposed to be. I wish i would have said something to her, but just wanted to get out of there. Overall, great food...service, well..not so great.

Great newer restaurant
The decor is fun and energetic with pigs hanging from the ceiling and the bar is cool with mason jar lights. Could be a fun place after hours as he cocktail selection was very unique and inventive. The service on this particular visit by our server was good, but the kitchen was way behind. It took us almost an hour to get our food. They were apologetic and in the end gave us free drink and appetizer cards to come back. The flavor of the food was great, but due to the kitchen issues was not hot. I had the brisket and it was very tender. The sides have a different twist to them...love the sweet potato dish. We will be returning. If you do go parking is in back as we did not know this and clogged traffic in front.

The food was very good our waitress was very attentive. The only I did not enjoy was the BBQ sauces I found them to be not very flavorful. However I would go back again for the food.

This was our second visit, & definitely won't be our last. A BIG restaurant, but very welcoming, lively and comfortable.
I love their pulled pork sandwich (add the colesaw on top for $1), & sides are delicious, including mac & cheese, corn pudding & baked beans. I also loved their potato salad the first time (flavorful, & potatoes slightly firm - not a mushy mixture full of excess mayo like you often get elsewhere). The second time the potatoes were undercooked, but our waitress gladly brought us a different side dish (the baked beans) to replace it.
Interesting drinks (try the Wee Doggie-a cross between a mojito & whiskey sour), & good desserts. Great addition to St. Charles.

We had a superb waitress (sorry, cannot remember her name). We needed a gluten free list of items and were provided with that. However, we believe the chili was NOT gluten free or possibly something else was not as it made my wife feel really bad that night. We thought the menu was large and plentiful enough. I usually do not eat meat, but had the turkey, which was outstanding. I wish you offered a veggie burger. You may want to contact Match burgers as they are made locally and THE BEST! Schnucks carries them and offers in the Des Peres Cafe area as well in the frozen area.
Your restaurant offers many great features: WELL DONE!! We WILL be back!!

The food at Hedricks is good. The staff is friendly but a little slow in service. The decor is very nice. I will be back!

It's more than just a BBQ place. It has a southern flair with country cooking and comfort foods. We had a table of four and there were no complaints from any of us. We all were stuffed and all said we would definitely come back. Some items on the menu say they take 15 minutes to prepare, if that is true, it sure didn't seem like we waited that long. We were out for a relaxing evening and experience so were not in a hurry.

Mothers Day Lunch
I took my mother to Hendricks for Mothers Day Lunch. She loves BBQ. She was not disappointed. The service was outstanding. The food was very good especially the meat. If you are hungry, get "The Whole Shebang" You won't be disappointed. The ribs are very meaty. The pulled pork is perfectly smoked. The sausage has a great flavor, but not too hot. The turkey was moist. There is a good selection of homemade sauces on the table. The BBQ Baked Beans are very good; smoky with bacon and lots of flavor. The macaroni and cheese was creamy with a crispy topping. If you have one meal in St. Charles, don't miss Hendricks

Excellent Ribs. The Chicken & a Biscuit is a must try. Haven't had anything bad there yet. We have gone 5 or 6 times now. The menu is a bit pricey. Ask the server to explain the portions. The menu uses the term "Family Style", which implies large portions for everyone to share and that is not what you get. They just come in separate bowls. On our second time there the server went over the menu with us and explained many of the options. All in all, once you figure out the menu it is a great place to eat.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great barbecue and great whiskey
Fabulous barbecue (not greasy ) with a smokey taste, and plenty moist. The whiskey and beer selections are way above average. Service was exceptional. I would strongly recommend Hendricks BBQ.

Our group has eaten there
Our group has eaten there probably 10 times and have never been less than satisfied. The service is terrific and the food is fab. We have spread the word where ever we can.

We heard about Hendricks BBQ from a friend. My husband loves BBQ ribs and had them. Best he has had in STL, we came back for them again. Delicious! The bar has fun drinks available too with moonshine. A great place for BBQ and a unique drink!
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been to Hendricks more times then I can count. Every time the food is off the hook and we love the staff. You do have to make a reservation if you don't want to wait but well worth it. Most of the time I get the ribs (all of them) but this time I had the Cobb Salad and now I have a new favorite. Kinda bad when you call for a reservation and they say hi Steve what time would you like. I told you we go a lot. This is the best place we know to get a great meal at a good price and see the Cards on the big screen.

Great New Local BBQ!
We'd heard good things about Hendrick's, but hadn't had the opportunity to eat there until now. Everything we heard was confirmed! We had a later dinner, so the dining room was starting to thin out, but people were heading downstairs to the bar below the restaurant for live music. The music, while in full swing, was barely audible in the restaurant portion, though, so it's not too noisy.
The place looked great, the decorations were very much like a good, old-fashioned BBQ place. The food was fantastic, meat cooked perfectly and the variety of sauces were really unique and tasty. They also have a good selection of beers available, both on draft and in a bottle.
Overall it was a great experience. We'll definitely go back!

Fun place, good food
Went for dinner with a couple clients. Great casual atmosphere but the food and the drink options were higher end than the decor might indicate. Their specialty cocktails were fantastic. All the entrees and sideds we had were delicious. We tried fried chicken, various bbq options, hushpuppies, corn ?, mashed potatoes, cole slaw and a couple others.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice surprise
We really enjoyed our visit the service was great and the food couldn't be better, I will definitely be back for more.

Happy at Hendricks
Was pleasantly surprised that we were able to get a last minute reservation for a group of 7 on a Friday night (definitely will be using Open Table again!) Great barbecue with ample side dishes. My dining companions really enjoyed their specialty mixed drinks also. Our waiter was very helpful with suggestions. The bar atmosphere was lively but not so loud that you couldn't have a decent conversation. Would definitely go back.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and great setting
Food and setting is amazing! The service when the restaurant is busy can be a little slow. We had to wait a while just for a couple beers, and a to go order took longer than our regular food order. But the food definitely makes up for it.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great BBQ with variety of delicious sides. Can't wait to try dessert next time

The food was very good. It was disappointing because they ran out of several side dishes.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious! A bit pricey....
Love the food! Love the atmosphere! My teen kids even loved the paper on the tables to draw on. The prices are a bit high. Most sides are a la cart. But the waitress told us what to order so that helped. Highly recommend making a reservation! Can do it on their website. We really enjoy going there!
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great!
I eat BBQ from a lot of places and being from NC, we had high expectations - Hendricks lived up to it! The food tasted great. The price was a little high for the portion size, but still worth it. Definitely will go back when we move here in the fall!
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Little expensive for my taste. Food was great & plentiful but you had to buy a $4 large side item to go with a $6 or $12 platter instead of just getting one or two small sides that you get with a sandwich.
Also we had a reservation at 11 am which we probably did not need because they just opened at 11 and we were the first ones in the place. The three of us were there for my birthday and were looking forward to have a nice conversation but the hostess sat a foursome with 2 small children right next to us when there was barely any one else in the restaurant. The one child would scream a high pitched scream about every couple of minutes and it was rather disturbing.
Why when a place is empty do they sit others right next to you?

Didnt get much time to enjoy -- was heading to Riverport for concert. However, the concert wasnt that good, so we wished we would have stayed and hung out on the patio. Next time and more review to come ;)

Nice Vibe, Great for a Group!
Food was very good and service was quick! We were there at 5:15pm on a Monday. The breads cost $5 extra for a very small portion (not enough for a party of 7). The upside is that you don't fill up on bread before your very plentiful entree arrives! How they offer their side choices and portion size could stand some revision. We will definitely go back to try other items on menu. Saw a lot of interesting plates go by my table and will save room for dessert!
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Such a great time!
We were looking for a fun, casual place to have dinner as a large group. The staff was great about accommodating our size at the last minute (we had one more than our original reservation.) The mixed drinks were great, the whiskey & beer were fantastic. Our waiter was spot on, attentive and knew the menu inside and out.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Main Street Hit!
I had heard lots about this place and when I went to the Festival of the Little Hills, we decided to check it out. We made a reservation through here just in case and were excited that it all worked out.

Great food with a unique spin on BBQ. Highly reco to any dining in the St. Charles Riverfront area.

great place but noisy
Everything about this place is good. Food, service, appetizers. The place does get very noisy though so it is not a place for a quiet evening.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food all around the table. Small perfect size sides even for big eaters.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
GREAT place to sit, talk & visit! Going again tonight to meet old friends because we know it won't be too loud & we won't be rushed. Love the ambiance! Food portions a little small, but pricing is comparable. Sides were ALL very good. We are used to a little more smoky flavor oin our bbq, but all meats were tender & juicy, love the choice of different bbq sauces. Service was excellent & accommodating to our party of 10 with kids & arriving @ different times.

Hendricks BBQ kicks it
We had reservations for 7 and got right to our table. We had a new waiter who really did a pretty bang up job! All of the group but one (in from CA) had been to Hendricks many times. Our CA guest was very impressed. The food was excellent as always, the drinks were great! Post meal we went downstairs to the blues bar and had several "flights" of whiskey and scotch to sample. What a fun and original place. The bartenders were very educated and shared a lot of knowledge with us. Great night as usual.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to dine
Decided to try Hendrick's (heard about it in the newspaper) and it was very good. Little bit loud with all the diners, but we all loved the sweet tea, bisquits, coleslaw, and pulled pork. Food came in good time, our server was super friendly and really made sure we had everything we needed. This is a very nice place to eat and I'm going to definately try it for lunch someday too.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the pulled pork sandwich as did 2 other people in our party. My husband had the ribs and brisket. We all enjoyed the food very much. The baked beans and the sweet potato casserole were also very good. A tasty meal!
The waiter and his trainee were very nice and helpful. Great customer service.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place has great BBQ plain and simple. Certainly contends for best ribs in the St. Louis metro area and worth the drive to old town St. Charles. My fav-- the baby backs!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My family is from the south and the braised greens were like my mother's and grandfather's! I was as simply in love with the shrimp and grits. Great atmosphere and service. Love that everything is houysemade or from local community. I couldn't stop saying,"soooo good"!
We will be back and bringing more people to experience this place!!!!!!
Southern food and BBQ done amazingly!!!!

Great food and service
We went to Hendricks BBQ for a birthday get-together and everything went really smoothly. We went in the afternoon, so it was not crowded and we were seated and served immediately. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was flavorful and tender. The ambiance was soulful and homey. I would definitely recommend this place for groups and special occasions!
