Went to Hendrick's with our friends (a group of 14) and we had a great time. The food was good and the portions were large. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Food was fine. The atmosphere is very loud. Not a place to go to relax for dinner, but when we have gone out for BBQ, this is the norm. Seating is mostly hard chairs. Did not see any comfy spots to enjoy a quiet conversation. Overall not a bad experience.

Seated immediately! Yeah....Food was wonderful...waiter was very attentive but not over the top!....but noise level a little too much for enjoying a nice conversation with friends. Would go again because the ribs, pulled pork, baked beans, nachos were all wonderful.

When we arrived the girl at the desk did not know how to set up the computer since she was from the evening shift. We were there on a Sunday at 11:00 October 8. We stood there while she was getting frustrated- several other servers came up but no one tried to address the fact we have been standing there waiting - the girl was totally frustrated by then - she kept telling us her frustration and none of the other servers helped . The place was empty!!! Why couldn’t she just sit us at a table and work around the problem rather then venting to us? Finally after 20 min we were sat up in the bar area - the barbecue sauce bottles were filthy and there was a silver fish bug on one of our bottles - u could tell they were not wiped down the night before.

We dined outside on the back deck which was very nice. Indoors the noise level was pretty high. Love the location on main street. We walked down the street for ice cream after dinner. Had the brisket and pulled pork which were both good. Disappointed in the barbecue sauces which were kind of runny and not great flavor. Definitely had better sauces at other barbecue places. The biggest disappointment was probably the size of some of the side dishes which they call Fixin's. In particular the fried potatoes was about 1/4 of what I I would have expected. I really liked the slaw and the portion there was more generous. The meat portions were generous.

Being from Ohio I was only vaguely familiar with Old Town St. Charles. I liked your web site and the ease of making a reservation on line. You have a good selection of beer, enjoyed the ribs. My brothers and sister-in-law said the beef brisket was slightly dry, my wife liked the turkey. We drove to St. Charles because my son had an invitation to listen to Stephen King. On a future trip to St. Louis I plan to return to your restaurant.

We had the nachos. The ambiance is wonderful. This is a place we will take our children. The BBQ is really good. We enjoyed the ribs, turkey and pork. The brisket is good as well but better at other places. Overall we will be back again.

Food was good as expected. Service was less than expected. Server was trying to work people inside and outside and it wasn't working. We wanted to get a half turkey half brisket sandwich but they would not oblige. We ended up ordering one sandwich of each and fixing it on our plate.

 (St. Louis)·Dined on September 11, 2017

Great food! We live in the area and had just had the opportunity to try this establishment out. My wife and I ordered the whole Shebang option, which gives a generous sample of the different meats that they offer. The brisket was by far my favorite. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised that the turkey was moist and tender. Often times (as we all know) turkey breast is hard to cook without 'drying' out; the turkey breast at Hendricks was still moist and tender!
The only reason that I didn't give Hendricks a full 5 star rating is because the prices are a bit high. I understand that having the extra care and attention by the staff to ensure that everything is made from scratch causes more work for them, but for some of the side dishes to be anywhere from $5-$7 for one serving is a bit steep.
We will definitely return in the future for a special treat for our family because the food is genuine and they have great options with wonderful flavor :-)

The food was okay, nothing special. I expected the sauces to have a better flavor. The service was pretty bad. The waitress kept forgetting things, we didn't get our alcoholic drinks until we were almost done eating, and various other little things. It was not the best experience.

Friends were visiting from Chicago so we decided to go to Hendricks. My frustration with Hendricks is their lack of consistency. The meat was good this time but last time was dry and missing flavor. In addition their staff has a high turnover.

This place is usually amazing. I took a client here for a business dinner and our waitress was sub par. We got our appetizers before we got our dinks and she had to go to the bar at least 5 times before she could tell us if they had the different alcohols my guests were wanting. Our food took a long time and it was SO salty I had to send it back. Once we got our food, our waitress never came back to our table. We all had asked for waters to drink and never got them. I asked for a manager and he could of cared less about our experience. Not so sure I could recommend this establishment now.

The food was amazing but the service was not good. Our waitress seemed preoccupied with a table with a couple of men at it. We had to request several times for drinks as well as sides. Then some of the food was cold. It was still delicious though.

I put on the open table resi that this was for a birthday. No acknowledgement from them
at all regarding this.. This is not an inexpensive place, wasn't busy, but the service was slow.
Brisket was one of the best I've had, sausage and pulled pork were cold. Ribs were tasty. Very good sauces. Average to below quality on their sides

Hendricks is a bar-b-que type of restaurant that doubles as a jazz lounge and bar. It's actually a nice place is downtown St. Charles, MO. We went there for my son-in-law's birthday dinner. The bar-b-que is ok...St. Louis isn't typically known for bar-b-que (Kansas City is), and it was decent, but not great. I've had better meals, but it was ok. Their Mac & Cheese was over-cooked, but the pulled pork was flavorful. Not the best place to go, but a decent meal at a decent price.
