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 12 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.

What a wonderful Valentine’s Night. Great pairings and grand food on fixed-price menus (Lyndsae French is woeful). Thank you for a memorable evening

First time dine and we went for Sunday brunch. Menu was very appealing to us with a large variety of savory dishes along with a few sweet ones. My husband ordered the scotch egg and the shrimp/crab omelet (note that a 4 egg omelet means just 4 eggs not 8). I ordered the cinnamon roll and the Southern Breakfast (andouille sausage, grits, biscuit/gravy, potatoes). Portions were plentiful - enough for 2 rounds of leftovers! Everything tasted very good. I was a bit disappointed in the breakfast cocktail menu - most were beer related and I don't like beer. Yeah I realize this is a brewery but it's also a distillery, and I would have liked to see a few more non-beer options. We would definitely come back again to try a few more things on the brunch menu.

I feel like we may have been a pain. We were having fun, may have been louder, all 5 had separate checks, a few of us changed our orders, we asked for way too many condiments, ect...

Our server was patient, kind, very helpful, and never showed an ounce of irritation. I wish I could remember her name now. Great food, ok prices, and just the best server ever. We aren't normally rude foodies. Just a perfect storm of celebration
And giddiness. She made it better.

The beer and spirits produced on site are very good, but the kitchen is what keeps us coming back. The menu is very solid and the execution is consistently excellent. I just really enjoy drinking and eating at Square One, whether at the bar or on the patio when the weather is nice.

Restaurant was great atmosphere. We were seated in a corner under a speaker the music was so loud. They started seating tables around us. With the other tables sat we were now uncomfortably blocked in.
Our service was quick but lacking . This is a brewery we were never told of drinks or feature beers? We ordered food . It was tasty and quick . The shrimp and grits was what I ordered . It was delicious but $17 for a portion that was child sized. There was no side offered with it. We were rushed through and never offered anything else. The server did refill our drinks promptly. It was ok . We might go back but we can wait .

Wonderful brunch! We enjoyed the Bloody Mary Flight - not so much with Bourbon, but the Wheat Vodka, Tequila and Gin were awesome! The seafood omelet was delicious and did not skimp on seafood. Crab cakes benedict also did not disappoint. Share a Scotch Egg, it's worth the calories! We will definitely be back.

Great experience. Exceptional food and our server was fabulous.
Called same day for a Saturday night reservation. Went with another couple and we were able to carry on a conversation without shouting.
Highly recommended for any occasion.

Went for New Years and the service was awesome and food was amazing. Perfect for a busy holiday because it wasn’t overpacked. Had the special pear cocktail, spinach dip, adult grilled cheese, brownie with ice cream and the coffee with fireball! All excellent!

The food is great. The drinks are fantastic (the house bourbon is yuuuum!). The service can be slow, however, so allow yourself ample time if attending an event post-dining. We’ve been to Square One several times and this has been the MO each time.

I made reservations for a group of seven ladies, and we all enjoyed our visit very much. We were seated right away and a table had been prepared in advance for us. I had the country fried chicken dinner which was really good, and way more food than I could eat. Everyone said good things about the food, and our service was excellent. I would definitely eat there again.

Wow ... first time venturing into Lafayette Square and we found this gem. The entire menu looked delicious, though I went with the beer pretzels, a cup of the flank steak chili, a side salad with apple whiskey dressing and fish tacos. I also had a pint of their pumpkin ale and a red IPA ... both outstanding, and I don't normally do pumpkin. I probably could have stayed for hours watching sports on the TVs that flank the bar, or sitting at the amazing handcrafted wood bar, which I am sure is historic. I probably should have looked that up. Insulation was fantastic too, as we sat in the front, near windows, and never felt cold. It was 30 degrees outside at night. Anyway, amazing food and drink. A very friendly place. See you next time I'm in town.

Had a reservation and were seated right on time. Outside patio always better here than indoors. We were indoors so just OK. Really, really noisy! Food good not great . Server OK but not around as much as we needed. Had to wait 15 minutes at one point just for a refill of water. Beer selection surprisingly limited for a brew house.

Stopped in from out of town and my group was very impressed. The beer was great, as was the food! The only thing I’d say I was a little disappointed by was the grilled cheese. I maybe had a sliver of Brie on the whole thing; mostly bread. However, the beer cheese soup was great, my friend loved her nachos and we all loved dessert!

Beer and food are very good. They brew their own beer and distill their own spirits. Less of a brewpub than a restaurant that has their own beer/spirits.
