The beer was great and the facility design in side is really nice. The food was just OK, no one was really blown away by anything they ate, there were 7 of us in total. Our waitress was not so good. She attempted to memorize our drinks rather than write them down so she had to come back to the table 2 times to confirm the order. She was rather sloppy placing drinks on the table then disappeared so we had to go find our own napkins to clean it up. I'll go back for the beer again and will see if a better server improves the experience.

We had a very large party. They gave us our own separate room. Our waiter did great and kept our drinks full and brought the food out hot and fresh. The only exception I would say is that the fries were a little over cooked and chewy. Very happy overall.

Food was average at best. Acoustics were terrible so way too noisy. Shlafly pale ale was delicious!

Had a great meal at Schlafly Bankside. We were seated right away, and our server Katherine O was the best. Very attentive, friendly and efficient. Considering it was Mother’s Day and there were 6 of us,I felt that it was exceptional. Can’t wait to go back.

We were seated in the basement with no atmosphere, tv or anything. Food was just average bar food and server not very attentive. Has a nice bar with big tv upstairs but wouldn’t seat us there despite empty distanced tables

We had a nice experience with the waitress being knowledgable about the drink and food menus. Portion sizes were good for the price. Food was great and we were not rushed at all being that we spent awhile hanging out after our meal.

Food was good. I miss the spicy ketchup that the Tap Room has. The fried pickles were amazing.

Slow service on a night when it was not busy. My wife ordered the pull pork sandwich and it was hard as a rock (burnt) and the bun was hard. She sent it back and got what I ordered (fish & fries) which was ok at best.) the waitress brought the bill and told us she took the sandwich off the bill as if she was doing us a favor in not having us pay for a meal that shouldn’t have been served.

We will not be back.

The beer was good. The food was okay, when we told our server that most of our meals came out cold, he did what he could to correct the problems. The largest issue was the service, I literally had to go find out waiter three times. I know they are working some kinks out.

I was really expecting more from the Schlafly brand as I have always enjoyed my experiences at Bottleworks and The Tap Room.
It feels as if they just slapped their name on the old and tired Trailhead food menu and have done nothing to upgrade the inside of the restaurant.
Sadly, until there are some upgrades, I won't be returning.

Large portions of food for price. Quality and variety of drinks was top notch. $30 round the world of draft beers was fantastic. Wait staff was amazing and matched the level of energy we brought to the table. Managers on staff were friendly and answered all our questions. 10/10 would recommend and will go back.

Great food. We had everything from pretzels to Shepard's pie. The fish and chips were great. Loved the beer-infused drinks made with the Black Raspberry spritzer. Our server was attentive. Masks and social distancing were observed.

I felt the service, food and great beer combined for a fine lunch. I especially appreciated the attention and adherence to the COVID-19 protocols.

Schlafly has come through again with this new, for me, location.

we got a table right away. The server was friendly and waited on us quickly. The food was good, not great, but good. I think it was a little overpriced for the portion size, but thats what you get in most brewpubs.
