Meatloaf special wasn't that special. The others I was with enjoyed the barbeque and sides.
This was my first time dining here. The menu offered a large selection of food, which all sounded great, and made it hard to choose. The biscuits we had to start with were fantastic. The Mac and cheese was ok at best the brisket was delicious and the baked beans were probably my favorite part of the meal. My only complaint is that our server wasn't very tentative, we waited quite a while for our drinks, which were just sodas and mine never came, I eventually had to ask another server if they could bring it to me. I also don't like that I have to write the tip when paying with a credit card, before it's wrang out.
Remarkable BBQ in a lovely setting overlooking Missouri River in St Charles. I am particularity taken by the baby back ribs and the brisket--both tender and moist and flavorful. I used both the house and St Louis sauces, which were very good. I wish they offered a mustard-based sauce as well. Beer list unusual for local draft choices. Fast charming server and everything as lovely.
1st time eating at Hendricks . We ordered the "whole shebang" because we wanted to sample all the meats. So worth the money. It was actually too much for 2 of us to finish. Their specialty cocktails were delicious too. I read some reviews that said service was slow, so I was a little worried. We got right in, served , and was done eating, all under an hour. Great experience!!
Terrible experience. The worst service we’ve had in years, possibly ever. When we reported this to the management, she laughed and said “The waitress is having a terrible day and you are the third table to report her”. Nothing was done. We literally didn’t get a single water refill, we ordered two flights of whiskeys that were delivered the exact same time as our food, even though we ordered them 20 minutes earlier. To top it off, they replaced one whiskey in each flight with a much lower value at one but didn’t tell us until they delivered them. The food was just OK, definitely an ultra premium for mediocre barbecue.
I am in love with Hendrick's BBQ! We felt welcomed and at home. The waitress was great. I wish I was better at names. Her service was exceptional. I especially liked how the staff helped each other. The food was superb! Great! Delicious! Scrumptious!
The "manager" of this restaurant is doing everything she can to ensure good paying customers will never come back. Absolute worst service I've ever experienced. Table was ready at our reservation time, over 30 min wait to order and receive drinks (Mgr said reservation was just for table, didnt mean service would be ready?), then another 30 minutes to receive food. Lots of excuses, none of them customer centric. She decided to argue with our table instead. I will never be back and will spread the word. There are many other options with better service in town (go to Sugarfire instead).
Took a party of 7 for Mother's Day and a birthday celebration. We expected it to be very busy based on its review, and it certainly was. We were seated promptly but service was slower than hoped for from our primary server; on the other hand, management actually stopped by multiple times and quickly took care of anything our group needed - kudos to him, and truthfully, it was Mother's Day so we were patient. I am not from the area but none of the local family members had been there before and they were very pleased with the quality and variety compared with other local choices. The smoked turkey was mentioned by a couple as outstanding; I liked the baby backs and pulled pork and several of the sides. Overall, a very good evening...
We were 90 mins early for our reservation but they managed to find us a table despite being booked solid. The food is amazing and they even have veterans discount which is awesome. This place is definitely on my list for BBQ / southern comfort food.
The service was slow and unfriendly, but the food was delicious! I wish they offered gluten free items on the kids menu.
Wait staff was confused for a bit but Mandy was fabulous. Cousin here from Rhode Island was thrilled. Band was fantastic
We had barbecue brisket, smoked turkey, a Reuben sandwich, pulled pork sandwich, salad, and chicken and dumplings. We were disappointed in the dumplings, expecting it to be more creamy than broth-based. But the flavor was good. We were surprised that we all thought turkey was the best protein sampled. Liked the choice of craft beers. We will definitely return.
We always enjoy the food at Hendricks! Great atmosphere too.
The bar was great. The hand crafted cocktails were excellent. The food was only ok. The cole slaw had no flavor. The brisket was over cooked. The greens and macaroni were good. The service was great.
OK if you like smoked meats. That's about all they have. Limited menu. Potato salad and cole slaw were tasteless. Service was good.
Reservations made on-line, no record of them at restaurant.
Have ate here several times. Very disappointed. Terribly slow service. Out of items. Fried food tasted like it had been fried in old grease. Told server and her response was “yeah I heard that earlier “. Again very very disappointed!
Cobb salad with brisket is amazing and huge! Keto-friendly place to eat!
It took 45 minutes for the food to arrive and when it did it was cold. Underwhelming experience. Go to Pappy’s if you’re looking for good St. Louis BBQ.
Excellent BBQ. The only thing heard at the table was no one liked the Cole slaw. Everything else was great!!
We are visiting St. Charles for our anniversary weekend and tried Hendrix BBQ for the first time. And would highly recommend it! The service was great except our appetizer didn’t make it out to the table. This turned out to be a good thing because there is no way we could have ate it and our meal. We may even go back again before we leave town!
Ribs and fries were great!!
Awesome to be able to try authentic St. Louis BBQ during my travels! 3 of my associates and I ate here after working a the Convention Center down the street. The atmosphere was perfect for us; low key and casual. The menu had something for everyone and we all LOVED our meats. Service was fantastic. There was no live music while we were there, but you can tell it's a fun spot. Would absolutely go back!
Great bbq with excellent flavor!
Always delicious! We love getting the rolls and being surprised with the daily jam :)
Went with friends, a table of 8. Had a wonderful time, service was friendly, food was great. One order had ribs instead of the ordered brisket, he was told to keep the ribs and a side of brisket was sent right out. Several tried pork cracklings for the first time, one ordered a second for dessert, a delicious splurge on a night out. Wide selection of drinks and plenty of cocktails to try. Band started downstairs so we enjoyed some good blues at the end of the meal and then ventured down for a bit. A fabulous evening.
Have been twice for dinner over the past month or so... Both occasions were on a weekend night and the service was excellent. The BBQ is great. Side are hit or miss depending on your taste (thought the mac & cheese was too spicy, corn casserole was OK, but green beans and cole slaw was outstanding). Tried one of their Cathedral Square brews and it was very good. Will be back!
Our opentable reservation, though confirmed, did not make it to the restaurant...but they found us a table and were very helpful resolving the issue. The food was delicious and we experienced great service!
Have been to Hendricks BBQ several times, great food & drinks
Great vibe and good food. Prices are reasonable, and service was good. Would definitely recommend! Right next to our hotel with a bar downstairs that had live music.
Great service from Taylor. Live music, speedy service.
Good food and drink menu. Friendly staff just can't keep up when busy.
Great BBQ. Make a reservationsince they fill up quick!
It was my daughter’s birthday. The staff was warm and welcoming, ensuring we had a wonderful experience.
The BBQ was awesome - the rib meat fell off the bone when I lifted them off the plate. Smoked Sausage and Hamburgers was excellent! My wife says the green beans we 'almost' as good as grandma's!
Fantastic service!! Ribs were awesome. Portions were good sized. We will be back
Great BBQ, great atmosphere and service. Good daily specials. I'd recommend it to anyone in or around the St. Charles area. It's a hidden gem.
The meat was smoked and not very flavorful. The sweet potato and corn casserole were good. There were 4 types of bbq sauces on the table but they seemed watered down. I had a reservation and the hostess, server were not very welcoming. I would recommend this place for someone to try the bbq. I feel bbq is something everyone needs to make their own option about.
The food is VERY overpriced for what you get - $42.00 for 2 drinks and an entree. $7.00 for a 4oz. side of creamed spinach. Seriously? Service was rough. Several orders were wrong and no effort made to correct. More than 10 minutes passed from the time food was delivered until server checked on us - after she spilled the $7.00 creamed spinach on the table and begrudgingly brought a replacement out. Ordered mashed potatoes with no gravy, got sweet potatoes instead. When our waitress finally came by, we asked for what we ordered (reminding her about the no gravy) and we got the mashed potatoes with - you guessed it - plenty of gravy. They used to have a very extensive bourbon list. Apparently not any more. I asked about some harder to find bourbons (which they've always had in the past) with no joy. Finally, I asked about Pappy and the waitress looked at me like I had three heads. Will not be going back any time soon.
The meat was great, the sides were good, and the local beer selection was pretty good as well. The major downside was that their BBQ sauces were all really thin and runny, with very little variation between the choices. Would choose a different BBQ place next time for that reason.
They weren't very busy the night we went, perhaps because it was a little cold outside. Our table was ready when we arrived. They have a good selection of alcohol; however, they didn't have the domestic beer I prefer. We went downstairs to listen to the live music after we ate and it was good. If you want to eat downstairs, you have to go upstairs and order your food and take it downstairs with you. Seemed like several people did that. Overall a good experience and I would go again.
