A word from Square One Brewery & Distillery
We are committed to our guests with an obsession for unique brews and spirits, and a passion for good food. The setting is a restored historic building with large outdoor beer garden making our restaurant a one of a kind dining destination. Our menu is large and varied with each dish having a special twist to make it our own. Our on site brewery provides up to 12 beers on tap including ales, pilsners, imperials, cask conditioned ales and seasonal beers. As St. Louis' first micro-distillery we ferment and distill rum and vodka (both straight and with spices and all natural botanicals) gin, and some very tasty liqueurs to be tasted in our Spirits Flight or mixed into your favorite cocktails. We have a full service bar and an excellent wine list with over 20 wines all available by the glass or bottle. Square One Brewery and Distillery is a fun relaxed place and a great way to indulge in all the aspects of a fine dinging experience.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Consistently serving delicious food, along with the best mixed drinks and cold beer(their own micro brewed). All done with a wait staff that know what they are doing and always a friendly smile. Their Sunday brunch can't be beat . Good variety on the menu and it's all good! We don't miss too many Sunday brunches, with friends. Really good patio here too."

  • "I liked the bar area - the bartenders were friendly and helpful in explaining brews. The staff was polite and attentive. The dining room area was VERY noisy. Noise baffles are on the ceiling, but they did not help with the noise level. We dined at 7:30p on a Saturday night - we were expecting mostly an adult crowd, but the dining room was filled with families, with young children, which contributed to the noise factor. The food was good and the beers were good. I will give it another try - however, I will plan to arrive later to avoid children. (P.S. I had young children once too and understand you still want a nice place to dine. However, when you go out on a Saturday night, you hope to be able to have a conversation.)"

  • "This is a real gem. I was visiting from out of town and wanted to try some local microbrews. After a few online searches my wife foung Squire One. Everything we saw told us this was the place to be. We arrived to find the place to have a real local hangout vibe. The main dinning room has fewer then 20 tables! All the staff were super frendly and willing to spend a few secounds answering our questions. Every thing we ate was super tasty. My ruban was the best I have ever tasted. The beer list was extensive. Unfortunally I did not try the in house spirits but most peaple around us had bottle on thier tables. My wife is already planning a return trip to STL just to eat here again!"

  • "We were totally overwhelmed by how great our meal was at Square One. We ordered a lot of appetizers and they were all fantastic! The trio of dips, the pub chips, the pretzels snd the wings were all way above average! Our group loved the chili, the ribs, the pulled pork sandwich, the grown up grilled cheese and the chicken sandwich! Can't wait to go back... Soon!"

  • "My wife took me here specifically so she could get the pot roast but they were out of it, so that kind of soured our mood. She got chicken and I got a Bratwurst burger. They were both ok. The drink menu was big and had lots of original creations, so if you're an adventurous drinker then this is your place. They had a kids menu so maybe next time we'll bring the kids, but for sure we'll call to make sure they're not out of the pot roast. We ate outside, which was nice. Service was good and waitress was knowledgeable of the menu."

  • "While we didn't try any of the house-made brews, we did try several of the distillery's options with our dinner, and they were excellent. The food was very good and the patio area is perfect for a lazy summer evening dinner, or anytime."

  • "We had a party of 12 (4 of which were children ages 2 - 10) While the children were good..... the food wait time exhausted their patience. 30 mins for 4 kids meals - 40 minutes from placing the order to table for remaining ADULT orders. I take responsibility for having chosen to bring a group which included 4 kids. SQUARE ONE IS A GREAT PLACE WITH WONDERFUL ATMOSPHERE AND GREAT FOOD. People come there to relax and enjoy a comfortable atmosphere. Adults with 1 or 2 children would be fine. 8 adults with 4 children too much."

  • "Great as always!! Food is always prepared as ordered. Best seafood omelet I've ever found. Really good Bloody Mary's to go with brunch."

  • "For a micro-brewery I was SHOCKED at the amount of children there. Let me first just say, kids don't bother me. Misbehaved kids do, however. Now, I know the restaurant has NO CONTROL over who brings their kids and what type of parents eat at their restaurant, but whoa. We sat on the patio, like we have several times. It's great. Service was very prompt and our waitress was very friendly and attentive - a welcomed change to the last time we dined here. Food was great as it was before too and for that reason and because the place is just cool and the beer is good I'll definitely return. The kids with their parents that didn't care what they did made it a little less enjoyable. Maybe next time we'll look to see where the children are then sit."

  • "This has really become our favorite restaurant. My boyfriend and I started coming here about 2 years ago and always think about the food for days after we visit. The service is friendly, knowledgeable and just all around good people to be around. The ambiance is beautiful. I really can't say enough about how awesome this place is. We went for brunch the other day for my boyfriend's birthday, which we had never experienced, and again everything was delicious. The Bavarian Weizen Chicken and Pot Roast is always a favorite of ours as well!"

  • "The food was good and hot. Beer was tasty. Our waitress was good but she had indoors and patio. it was loud! We had to shout to hear each other. That's what would keep me away."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We went because it looked interesting on the webpage and to buy our son-in-law a bottle of scotch. Food was good. Loved being able to see barrels through floor of dining room. Quaint neighborhood. Found out later a friend from church goes there regularly too."

  • "The food was good as usual, but our server was great at recommending beverage pairings."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Square one consistently serves great food and drinks/beer. The service is just as good.. Their Sunday Brunch is the best! Would recommend any item on the menu, as I have tried most all of them. Bartender makes a killer Bloody Mary. And, being a micro brewery, they have some of the best beer, bar none."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The menu looked great, but we were disappointed. Overcooked meat and veggies, and underwhelming sandwiches. Great drinks and dessert. If their food gets to the level of their beer it will be a perfect place!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Service issues and lack of preparedness for Father's Day. Ran out of Scotch eggs ( which we waited on for 15 min. before being told), pancake batter, cinnamon rolls. Food was good but I would not go on a holiday brunch again."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Server must have been new because we waited forever for food. When the food arrived, it was wrong. She tried to convince me that what I ordered was correct when it was clearly written different on the menu. Father's Day was not exactly enjoyable!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I ate dinner here several years ago but hadn't been here to eat since. My girlfriend and I came to Square One a couple weeks back to have some beers and sit on the patio. The patio is awesome. We said we had to come back to try the food because the menu looked awesome. We decided to come here with some family that was visiting, again sat on the patio but this time in the covered area due to rain. Still a great patio even when covered. We ordered some apps, salads and soups to have before our meal. The service was EXTREMELY slow. Our apps didn't come out for quite some time. When it (the goat cheese spinach dip) finally did, it was cold. We asked to have it reheated. Once we got past that, dinner was fantastic, food was delicious."

  • "This was just my second visit to Square One and first for dinner. Arrived shortly before 9 on a holiday weekend and had a short wait at the very cool bar, with very good craft beer descriptions from the bartender. Food service was very good for how busy they were and food quality was superb (fried grouper and Cuban pulled pork) Will come back with more friends next visit. "

  • "Dinner salad portion confused me as a side salad portion. Vegetable soup is canned veggies, not fresh. One person's of meatloaf came out cold. Another person's salad was scraped (w/ remaining items) they asked for w/o on their salad"

  • "Five of us went to the Square One Brewery for dinner based upon a friend's recommendation. Had made reservations, wanted to sit out on the patio but they don't reserve the patio...so we ate inside. Interesting interior, Plexiglas inset to the floor so we could see through to the distillery! Sat near the large fermentation tanks for the beer. Several of us tried the beers, and they were really great flavorful micro-brews. A few of us tried spirits and these were also excellent. Best part of the evening was the food, great chef must be there because we all thought the food was to die for! The only downside was the waitress who seemed a little overly busy. If you go sit in the outside patio it is beautiful with a lovely fountain."

  • "We needed a place to relax and enjoy a delicious meal on Monday night. My husband had the Cuban pulled pork with the recommended IPA beer and I had Cassoulet with the Light Squared ale. White beans and roasted vegetables simmered in a rich broth then finished with Gruyere cheese and tasted corn bread crumbs. The brussel sprouts were especially good. Although the Cubs were giving the Cardinals a bad time downtown, we had a great time at Square One."

  • "The service was very slow, just over an hour for a brunch order during which time we had to flag our waitress down for water refills and drink orders. The ambiance is great, but not worth the wait. This has been true of past visits, but this won the award for longest wait for an order .the waitress was great at passing our table without making eye contact"

  • "Have eaten there 3-times in the last month, very good food, love the menu variety, a bit tardy though on initial service after being seated and just a tad noisy for some, though it doesn't bother us. Great choice for access to downtown sports and entertainment venues."
