We are committed to our guests with an obsession for unique brews and spirits, and a passion for good food. The setting is a restored historic building with large outdoor beer garden making our restaurant a one of a kind dining destination. Our menu is large and varied with each dish having a special twist to make it our own. Our on site brewery provides up to 13 beers on tap including ales, pilsners, imperials, cask conditioned ales and seasonal beers. As St. Louis' first micro-distillery we ferment and distill rum and vodka (both straight and with spices and all natural botanicals) gin, and some very tasty liqueurs to be tasted in our Spirits Flight or mixed into your favorite cocktails. We have a full service bar and an excellent wine list all available by the glass or bottle. Square One Brewery and Distillery is a fun relaxed place and a great way to indulge in all the aspects of a fine dinging experience.

I have always enjoyed going to Square One in the past, but the food this time wasn't the same. We ordered Beer Cheese soup and it came out separated instead of creamy and lacked some flavor. I ordered the Mac and Cheese make your own bowl, unfortunately it lacked a lot of flavor as well. I had included a variety of items so it shouldn't have been like this. My friend has the skillet gnocchi which was amazing! I tried a bite and it was so good.

Highly recommend. We went for Sunday brunch. Were lucky enough to score a table in the outdoor courtyard. this was s nice surprise / didn’t know they had outdoor seating. very cozy space with a water feature. Food was excellent. large portions and tasty. the cinnamon roll was different than most - and better! more dense and not sickeningly sweet. BeerMosa was a good pairing with Brunch.

excellent food and wonderful beer; always a fun time. Anyone can find menu items that they like. The waitress was wonderful but we waited more than 45 minutes after ordering for food. Luckily we were in no hurry but it was too long for most visits. Still, the ambiance and food make it our favorite place.

A group of us they play sports together get together on occasion for brunch during the off season. I picked Square One because I’d been there before but not for brunch and wanted to try it. Thankfully they had reservations available for groups of 10 and they were very accommodating when our group grew to 13 people. Our sever was awesome and embraced our big party. She kept our drinks full and was easy going on splitting checks. We will be back! Thanks!

The brewery produces a lot of light beers but needs to balance with porter or stout.

Overall good place. The homemade spirits and beer are fantastic. The food was a little off this time in regards to seasoning and the salmon was well over cooked. Also my side of Brussels came out before my dinner salad and meal?

Terrible service. Our waitress was very slow and inattentive. Took forever to get drinks and order meal. She seemed put out waiting on us. Half of my husband’s Rueben was delicious and the other half was so fatty it was inedible. My mahi tacos were delicious. Waitress was nowhere and never asked how our food was. The busboy was quite visible refilling water etc and we complained to him about the Rueben. He said he would notify the kitchen. We never heard another word from anyone including our waitress. A different busboy snatched my beans and rice before I was finished. We will not return. There are too many other great choices in St Louis.

We frequent Square One for their brunch! It is absolutely delicious. We got the Lox Bruschetta (my personal favorite) and we tried some new things; biscuits and gravy (the biscuits were really good, but the gravy was sweet-which was not to our liking) and the Belgian Waffle (which was phenomenal). I always end up getting a Bloody Mary with jalapeno vodka and my faince always gets the breakfast beer which are both delicious!

We had a fairly Big party for brunch on a Sunday, 10 people! Unfortunately, a couple from out party were running a little late, but they seated us anyway! Great!

We ordered the homemade cinnamon rolls for the table & they were delicious! Everyone's order looked wonderful. Even alllll the different order of Eggs Benedict or Crab Cakes Benedict and each & every egg was cooked to perfection is no mean feat! And my Irish skillet with corned beef has was sooo good.

Everyone ate every.single.bite on each plate! Not a single bite was left!

And order the breakfast beer! It's Delish!!

Usually very good. Not this time. Had to wait a long time for drinks...even longer for food. Order was either put in wrong or kitchen messed up. We left and didn’t finish. Food not satisfactory. Manager comped the entree’s. With a time commitment we couldn’t wait any longer. Never been this way before

One of the best restaurants and breweries in the St. Louis area. I have been a regular patron since they opened their doors in 2006 and the food and drinks have gotten better and better each year. Their menu has something for everyone and the atmosphere is casual and relaxed. I highly recommend Square One for any meal of the day.
