Square One Brewery & Distillery Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
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!
This was our first visit & we were heading to a concert following dinner. Service was incredibly slow, even though it was fairly early (5:30). We expected the drinks to be amazing, since it is a “distillery/brewery”—but we were disappointed. Server rarely came back to check on us & when she did, she didn’t even notice that my husband hadn’t touched his drink. (It was terrible.)
I ordered the bratwurst burger, which was incredibly salty. We really weren’t impressed & likely won’t be going back.
This is a nice looking restaurant and comfortable atmosphere. The food was average. My biggest problem was our server. She raced around the restaurant like it was a triathlon. Fast talking, rush rush rush. Did she have somewhere else to go?
My husband and I were on a long weekend getaway to St Louis. We were pleasantly surprised to find Square One Brewery. It's upbeat and trendy with great cuisine in the beautiful Lafayette Square neighborhood. Great place to enjoy an evening out with friends.
This is an amazing place to enjoy friends or have a quite evening alone. The food and drinks are great!! I have never had a bad experience here and the staff is always upbeat and makes your visit seem special. I would recommend this place to anyone asking for a great lunch or evening dining and drinking place. Kudos to Square One and its ability to keep their customers happy and coming back.
The food and drink options are novel, and the quality is above average. We went for lunch with a group of five with an infant. I believe our server was having an off-day. She was attentive if we had a request, but initiated very little interaction. I would describe her as sullen in her demeanor. The overall ambience would probably be more appealing during a busier time of day.
