Quite a quant lil place, very intimate and friendly establishment. Bar seats about 18 people and the area around it has 4 bar tables for 4 people each. Dinning is in a separate area, seating for about fifty.

The bartenders and waitresses were very friendly and knowledgeable. Quick service on a Saturday nite around 5, and by 7 the place was packed. ‘Course, everyone had a nice craft brew in their hand, so any waiting did not seem that long.

The wife and I were a little disappointed in our food – but like our companions said, we ordered fish from a brewery. My grouper was on the rubbery side, and the wife’s salmon was cut way too thin – only about a ¼ inch thick. Potato slices were too oily, not crisp enough. The Portobello melt and burgers were very good according to our dinner mates. I’ll be back for other dishes besides fish, and I know that they are still in new mode.

Can’t wait till the beer garden opens. Oh, did I mention that the 3 types of brews were excellent? (and only $3.75 pints)

And no smoking anywhere, just outstanding! Edit - no smoking ing in the main dining area, smoking OK in the bar, but it was only a few.

Can't believe that I have written this review yet given how many times I have eaten dinner here. Square One has the feel of an early brew pub. There is a grand, wooden bar in the front barroom with the main dining room towards the back. There is a nice courtyard for the summer months and the upstairs is an event space, although I have never been up there.

The food is where Square One really shines. Both the quality and variety of food offered is very good, as well as reasonably priced. The beers brewed in house are also pretty good. A few of the brews stand out, their maple stout comes to mind immediately. The staff has always been good with courteous, timely service and I have never had a negative experience here.

Overall, Square One is a very good restaurant with a solid selection of quality beer brewed in house. The best way to describe it on the whole is a great place to take your family. Whenever my parents visit me in St. Louis, Square One is always in consideration for dinner.

Their beers are good without being great (with one or two exceptions), the great thing about this place is the sandwiches. Had one of the best reubens I've ever tasted here.

Large patio to enjoy a lengthy list of their brews which includes rotating seasonals. Beer has always been decent, their maple stout sticks out to me as an outstanding beer. Food has always been pretty tasty.
