The beers at Square one were much better than expected. Had the Imperial stout, the barley wine and the Biere de Garde over the course of an afternoon with some mahi mahi tacos and a IPA to top the afternoon/evening off. Spent about 4 hours hanging out with friends and enjoyed it. Service was a little slow, but the beer was excellent. The Biere de Garde was probably my favorite, but the Barley wine was also excellent. Combined with a reasonable menu and some intriguing fare made this a solid place to hang around for an afternoon/evening on a weekend.

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.
