Great Beer
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.

The option of doing half pint helps taste multiple beers. Would love to see more vegetarian options.

We had to ask for water refills and additional drink orders. We also had to track the waitress down for additional sauces, salt etc. I was also disappointed in the cleanliness or lack there of. We sanitized and wiped down our table as it was clear it had not been sanitized.

Salmon and Crab Eggs Benedicts were very, very good, but the accompanying side portion of potatoes was an unwanted surprise, not having been mentioned in the menu.
Noise level rather high, impeding conversation.

Well, do not go for a special occasion, especially with quite a few people that have never been to Square One, or you will be highly disappointed. We had a group of 10 for lunch to celebrate a birthday, it was clearly noted on the Open Table reservation. There was no mention of the celebration and the waitress was Missing in Action (MIA) several times when needed, only to discover on our way out the she was sitting at a table up front chatting it up with some other customers. The restaurant wasn't busy so one would think she would have been extra attentive. She never asked if this was anyone's first time at their restaurant, never mentioned what was good or some specific favorites, she brought everyone's checks without even asking if we wanted dessert AND we were there to celebrate a BIRTHDAY!!! It was ridiculous. I've been a loyal customer for years, I've actually had the same waitress wait on us before. Based on our experience, not sure if we will be back! It was highly disappointing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We were sat upon arrival which was good. However our waitress seemed to be having a bad day. She cut me off while placing my order. She also walked away before by dinner companion could finish his order. She was rude and short with us. And what do you know the food came out wrong. It took several requests to get the food correct. I wanted toast instead of an English muffin and he wanted his pancakes to be extra crispy. We got through it and the check was delivered to the table before we finished eating. No words just dropped on the table. I watched her at other tables and she was smiling and chatty. Luckily we were seating right next to the bathroom. It was enough for a one time experience. Nice space for work functions otherwise I don’t feel the need to go back.

We very much enjoy Square One and will return. However, we did have a very slow and unaware waiter this visit. He definitely was not well trained and working on New year's Eve. Every encounter was super slow....if we had been in a hurry the poor service would have been a bigger issue. We ended up flagging down another wait staff after we had not had a visit from our own waiter for 15-20min. The other staff member was fantastic and actually finished waiting on us that evening. New or inexperienced servers should have been looked after better by management. It was apparent that was not happening either. We hope for a little different experience next visit.

Cannot handle a party of 10, even with a reservation. Service was remarkably slow and the manager disappeared. Both beer and food were unremarkable.

We went to dinner before going to Botanical Gardens Christmas lights Dec23. What a fun evening. Our server was not interested in serving though. He was very distracted and not outgoing at all.

I definitely would recommend Square One to friends and family - even out of town visitors. Nice ambiance and love that you can see the brewery and distillery on site. Beers are fresh and very tasty. The wings are awesome and the Irish Melt is definitely a favorite now. Definitely coming back again.
