It had been awhile since we had been to Hendrick’s and I had never reviewed previously. The food was fantastic! I had the brisket and the turkey (I honestly want to order the turkey for Thanksgiving next year, never had better) and both were superb in flavor and tenderness. I had the baked beans and sweet potato fries which were also good. The servings were huge! The service was knowledgeable and attentive. The other 3 in my party all had sandwiches but raved about them and the Mac and cheese, the green beans and the baked potatoes. We will be frequent visitors to Hendrick’s BBQ!

We had a reservation for 4 for 6:45pm and were seated right away and ordered. Over an hour after ordering our waitress came and told us that they were out of baked potatoes (one loaded had been ordered for daughters meal, and one ordered as a side). We asked for a minute to figure out what to order instead and they proceeded to immediately bring out our food missing the potatoes so we would not have even been able to eat together. We left and won't be back. Manager did not apologize but at least comped our 3 sodas and rolls since that was all we had for 75 minutes. So many better choices out there.

The bbq/ribs were very good, as was the service, our waiter. The sides however, were disappointing. The cream corn dish was dry, cool in middle, and not very tasty, as previously have had. The green beans were cold. Had to send 2 combo dinner plates back because wrong meats, and the nachos were missing ingredients

I have wanted to eat here since visiting here this past summer. I was disappointed when I finally did. Our server was great and I should have complained when I got my food, but I hate to send things back. The slaw was ok, nothing special. My pork steak was tender in some spots, not so in others. The biggest disappointment was a premium baked potato that is $1 extra with sea salt. There was no salt anywhere on or around the potato as well as not quite done throughout. Even with butter and sour cream it was a bland affair. I wanted to love it because the restaurant looks so fun and interesting. Maybe they had an off night...I will leave bar-b-q to my favorites in Florida.

Everything was great, as usual. The only mishap was I ordered the Chicken & Biscuit and as it was being delivered the server said they were out of biscuits. I asked for it just to come out when they were done cooking. It never came out, but the server comp’d it on our bill without question. Very nice and unexpected. We love this place!

We usually get a good meal at Hendricks, but Saturday evening was very disappointing. The tap at the bar wasn't working so we weren't able to get the beer we ordered. They didn't have mint to make a mojito and they didn't have Bailey's for a coffee and Bailey's.
2 of us ordered the corn casserole; it was so dry we couldn't eat it and sent it back. They returned with green beans that had so much salt on them (plus they were not hot), we didn't eat them.
The brisket was the biggest disappointment. We had 3 decent sized slices, but the majority of it was fat and gristle.
We did have a good server.

Had a reservation and got seated on time from there it was disappointing. After seated no staff acknowledged us for over 20 minutes, not even eye contact. We had to go to hostess to see if we could get water and service. They sent someone over and ordered appetizers along with our meal. The appetizer came out wrong and with the meal, instead of before. Half of our food was cold. What was warm tasted great. It was a disappointing experience and unfortunately will not be back. We felt like we were in the way just being there.

Great service! I got the 4oz brisket and deviled eggs for my meal. The brisket was delicious but a little dry - i dipped it in one of the white sauces that came with the fries. The deviled eggs were disappointing; definitely not as pictured on this site. They seemed old and watery - very little amount of yoke in the centers. We had a group of 6 and it was a little difficult for conversation with the music level.

I love their food and their house made margaritas are the best that I have found since moving back to St. Louis. I also love that they also own Cathedral Square brewing, so my favorite beer is always on tap.

My wife and I ordered half rack of ribs, which were delicious, but disappointed in the sides, which are not included with your meal. That in itself, was disappointing. Wife had potato salad and baked beans. I had baked beans and slaw. Sides very ho hum. The restaurant is very noisy, our server had to ask us several times what we ordered.

Made reservation on Opentable for 7:00pm seating. The restaurant was only about 50% full, however a walk-in group of 5 had to wait 15 minutes for a table to open up. I hung out at the bar until my reservation. The bar/restaurant has a HUGE selection of bourbon & scotch and a comprehensive selection of craft-type beers. However, their selection of other spirits was limited to the standard bar fare.

The meal was OK and the service was OK. The macaroni and cheese dish was very good and the collard greens were nice too - not too soft, good bacon flavor. The brisket was moist and had good flavor. My server was not very attentive. In fact, I had to go to the bar to get a water refill. It felt more like a drinking place that served BBQ than a BBQ place that served drinks.

Probably a cool place to hang out if you like bourbon, scotch and/or craft beers. I'd probably go again if I wanted to hang out with some friends.

BBQ is very average and I ordered the brisquet. SugarFire brisquet is much better. The portions are very very small for $15 with no sides or even bread. The fried chicken sandwich on a biscuit was excellent. The side of spinach was very salty. Green bean side was ok. Fried potatoes were good but not freshly made. Server was attentive and helpful. Good atmosphere and decor. Best part was live music in the lounge below.

Hostess was extremely unorganized. We arrived 15 minutes ahead of our resevation and she had us wait 20 minutes while she tried to figure out who her staff would be at the shift change (we only had a party of 3). Then seated two tables while we waited. The smoked meats were excellent as were the BBQ beans. The potatoes in the potato salad were not cooked through and the corn casserole was dry and crumbly with corn kernels that were like little rocks, like it had been under the heat lamps for much too long!! One member of our party had the pastrami sandwich and said it was delicious.

Do NOT miss this restaurant! We were visiting the area for a get-away when the hotel clerk recommended it for dinner. WE LOVED IT! In fact, we ate there 2 days in a row. The meats are off the hook, and the sides are truly Southern comfort goodness. Enjoy, you'll come back.

Take seven out of towners, shake with indecisiveness on what to order, add one patient, gem of a waitress (Casey) and you end up with a good meal. I had the two meat meal and chose the brisket and sausage. Brisket was good, sausage wasn’t spicy as advertised. My side was the corn casserole (good) and a baked potato. One diner had the brisket and smoked turkey and said the turkey was wonderful. I also had the Boozey Bacon Maple shake which was more of a dessert than a shake, especially since there was so many bacon pieces the straw was useless I’m sure there are better places, and if it hadn’t of been for Casey, I would have rated this 3 out of 5 stars. She made the night for us.

I like getting a meal that is filling, flavorful, and reasonably priced. This place delivers these features.
The only suggestion I have is I didn't like the paper lining between my food and the tray. It ripped, got soggy and stuck to my yummy sandwich.
