We reserved an outside glassed in cubicle and it was lovely! Sparkling lights on the ice surrounded us. No one else kept their reservations outside due to the very cold weather. We were fine with coats on. The food was very good and nice choices. Our server, Ariel, did a fine job of coming and going in the cold. Liked the music hookup option to play our music from our phone.
The Butternut squash Ravioli was fantastic. Well done!
Was a little disappointed in my Lamb Pappardelle, a little overpriced in my opinion. Table was a little small for 4 people and it was not entirely stable. The appetizers were delicious. Our server was very good.
The restaurant design was beautiful! I loved the entrance. Food was very good. I had the cauliflower gnocchi and i would come back just to eat it again!
Great place for food and some of the best craft beers anywhere.
First time at your restaurant. Went at noon on Sunday. Small menu. Found out menu bigger after 2:00 pm. Had a very nice time. Will go again. Thanks so much!
Our 2nd Trip, celebrated our Son’s Birthday!!!
We were very happy with our Server and the food once again was excellent!!
Thank you Alter Brewing + Kitchen!!
Happy New Year 2022
Outstanding food that is served with a smile. Enjoyed flights of beer and found several very good. The Golden Ale is at the top of the list.
Excellent Brews food and service. Party of 5 and we all were off the same opinion. The views of the holiday lights were excellent. We appreciated the safety measures of staff wearing masks during Covid. We will definitely return.
We totally get that you have to change up the menu occasionally but the new menu was very disappointing! Lamb lamb and more lamb! 2 of the 5 entree choices - lamb and at least 1 sandwich. Not everyone likes lamb in fact I’d venture to say a lot of people indifferent to it. I totally understand having one entree and 1 sandwich but when you only have 5 entrees and 2 are lamb is disappointing.
We love Alter and have always loved our meals and had great service but sadly can’t say that was the case last night.
Great high quality beer selection and food is better than most brew pubs.
Great food! Gluten free options are limited but they have gluten free buns and tortillas which allows for increased menu options.
The Chicken Pesto Handheld is amazing!!! Great appetizers for sharing. Love the flavor profiles!
Excellent service and ambiance! The food was outstanding.
The service was great from the greeting to the good bye. The beer, drinks, and food were outstanding. Loved the look and feel of the restaurant, fun, hip, energetic. We will definitely be back.
We were greeted with kindness!
Mariah was our server, she was amazing.
Whatever questions that we had, she was very gracious with answering.
We couldn’t get over the food-it tasted phenomenal.
We recommend the Pesto Chicken Sandwich and the Lamb Chops!!
Odes to the Chef!!
And because everything was fantastic, we’ve decided to have my son’s birthday celebration here.
I will suggest your place to family and friends.
Then we headed over to the Arcada Theater for the Genesis Concert.
What a wonderful night.
Thank you Alter Brewing + Kitchen.
Bigplace. Boring burgers and over cooked fries. Good beer selection, as you might hope for from a brewery. Absolutely no atmosphere in the tent extension. I'll take the local pubs with more 'fun' atmosphere next time.
My brother and I went here for dinner for the first time and stayed for over five hours. The food, beer, service, and ambiance were great! All of the waitress's recommendations were perfect. The Messy Fries appetizer was incredible. Our entrees were the Alter Burger and Shrimp Linguine. Both were excellent. After dinner, we spent some time at the bar and had a good time with a very interesting and friendly bartender. We left (not until closing time) with a few Crowlers of Valley Girl Blonde pale ale. We'll be back and we look forward to next summer when we can sit outside on their large outdoor riverside patio. Plenty of parking is available, including nearby handicap parking.
Great food and great service. Enjoyed the drinks and the atmosphere.
Rock shrimp does not look like rock shrimp
My wife and I have been going to Alter Brewing since they opened. Rotating beer choices, great food, spirits for non-beer drinkers, very friendly and professional staff and ideal location. Highly recommend.
Craft beer and upscale food at a great local craft/micro-brewery.
Their beers never disappoint and their food has always been worth it.
The atmosphere is awesome too. Great place to hangout with a significant other and/or friends/family.
You won’t be disappointed going to Alter Brewing + Kitchen in St Charles Illinois.
With a great selection of brews on tap, this is always a place to go for a quick bit or a full on meal. The Messy Fries are a favorite of mine and could be shared with another for a full meal!
Good beer, great service, good food. Atmosphere was very nice.
Great food. Great staff. Excellent service. Will definitely be back!
Great environment, good food and drink and location. I would definitely go back.
Friendly service and good food
The service and staff were great, as were the food and beers.
Amazing food and beer
First time there and would recommend it to others.
Very disappointed in the food. Hardly any crab in the crab cake hush puppies. Chicken mole sandwich was not good. Mushroom paella should be called artichoke paella...
This place is the tops. A family of a 3: 1 vegan; 2 mostly vegan. We always have a good time! 4 year old daughter is slightly annoyed by the volume of the music, but if you don’t have any little ones, it’s all irie, baby! Great food, great staff, great beer, great location. What else could you ask for??
Beer and service were great! “Outdoor” enclosed dining area had uneven temperature, but otherwise pleasant. Crab fritter appetizer was excellent and the Banh Mi sandwich with onion straws was as well. My wife had a burger which she described as average. We’ll return and try some other things.
I had the mushroom paella and it was amazing. My husband and I were there for a special occasion and were sat in the section with mostly young families. It was extremely loud. But overall it was very good.
First time there and everything was great. The food, the service and of course the beer. I took my father there who just turned 88 and he had a really nice time.
Good food,wide choice of beer,very friendly. Crab cake hush puppies were del6
Loved the food! Felt very clean in the restaurant and the beers I tried I loved. Thanks for a great bday and great service!!!
Great service! Appetizers were delicious. Will definitely go back there!
Great place for dinner, sitting with friends and trying some great beers. We had a veggie sandwich and BFF beer, so delicious. The service was good and the servers were very pleasant, and followed all Covid protocols. Will definitely go again.
We love Alter because of the food the beer and oh yeah are son work there!!
This is the 3rd time in about a year that I have been here. The service seems to be getting worse overtime. I waited about 8 minutes from being seated before the server came to greet and bring drinks. The first round of drinks (a flight and a beer) seemed to have taken a while. Had to ask for water twice before it arrived. The food was slow, and the server forgot to put in the appetizer, but it was taken off our bill without us asking due to it never arriving.
