Square One is located in the Lafayette Square area. The building is beautiful. The selection of beer is outstanding! I've been a couple of times and they always have very solid traditional beers as well as some unique offerings. I especially recommend going on Sunday and getting the Chicken & Waffles with the Maple Stout - AMAZING!! I wish there... More

Great service, lots of seating and a menu with a large variety of options for all. The Mussels and Calamari are delicious. They have a distillery inside, outdoor patio with a waterfall, bar with TV for your entertainment and a nice indoor dining area.

I've eaten here many times, usually for late lunch, always outside weather permitting. Food is basic and good. Beer wonderful.

Stayed at the Park Avenue Mansion B&B. The owner recommended Square One. The food was outstanding. Wait staff really cared that you were there. Next time I'm in St.Louis definitely will stop in again

Our dinner companions loved the beer, and as a gluten-free diner, I appreciated the fact it was not only a brewery (can't drink the beer due to the gluten) but also a distillery (CAN drink the spirits - the rye I tasted was very good.) The food was good, the atmosphere lively, the outdoor patio had heaters (it was quieter... More

Great sandwiches, good beer, very good service. Sit outside! Their courtyard space is excellent! A Lafayette Square option to please everyone.

Noisy. We asked for an outdoor table because it was so cold inside.. The hostess said it would be at least a 20 minute wait. We could see the 2 empty tables from where we were seated. Horrible waitress. Didn't say what beers they have, she just asked what we usually drink, and brought what we thought we might like.... More

The Caribbean pork was ok. Tons of flavorless black beans. Hello chef you can add seasoning and onion to them. Pork was a little dry, I think chef Mic (microwave) was hard at work. The plain rice didn't help the dish, maybe a little lime zest with cilantro would help kick up a nice Caribbean flavor. $1.50 for 2 flour... More

I tried a simple hamburger, but it really was the best I ever had! They are cooked on wood fire and ingredients are phenomenal. I will definitely come back!
