Went here last week. First we went to the upstairs (restaurant part). The main room holds roughly 75 and a back room holds another 20. The back room also holds a small bar (maybe 10 people). We sat at the bar to better view their bottled selections. The food was average home-style food. I had a pulled pork sandwich with home fries. The price per portion and quality was good. The service was friendly, quick, and relatively knowledgeable. The only problem was that the service congregated at the bar and openly discussed other customers, service, and any other personal problems. This was a little discerning and uncomfortable. The beer was the highlight. Their were easily 75 different bottle selections. I had a Rogue Shakespeare Stout and my other had a Lindemans Lambic Framboise. Both were amazing as usual. The main bar scene was downstairs (through an outside stairwell). More beer was available, but the noise, smoke, darkness, and crowds hurt the ability to enjoy in a comfortable atmosphere.

This is the type of place i tend to enjoy in a brewpub so i might be a bit biased in my review, but here goes.
Its a small bar downstairs, where i was, and definitely caters to a regular crowd but don't let that discourage you. they will welcome you in and you'll be in the locals conversation in minutes.
they have a very good selection of beers, although most are bottle offerings. the bartender was very knowledgeable and offered up good choices when i was deciding. prices are very reasonable and your glass will only go empty if you let it, the staff was very attentive. big thumbs up.

The Old Millstream has been a hub for some former co-workers of mine for years. I got to know this place through them and have had several drinks here over the years. The atmosphere is nice, emphasizing the rustic aspects of mainstreat St. Charles. Their beer garden is absolutely wonderful, with good music and friendly people.
The staff is incredibly knowledgable, but depending on who you get serving you (and what time of day you come in) they can be either open and friendly or a little standoffish. This is definitely a bar aimed at their regulars.
Overall, I would suggest the place to anyone if you're local and looking for a good place to have a few drinks on a friday night.

The Old Millstream Inn is located Main Street in St Charles along the Missouri River, and is right next to Trailhead Brewing as a matter of fact. There is some street parking and a couple of lots.
The building is 2 levels, with the top floor being a restaurant and the basement the bar. There is also a large patio with a nice view of the river. The bar is dark and pretty small. Lots of worn wood and breweriana around. There is a cooler behind the bar which offers a good view of all the available beers. The big minus is rampant smoking in the confined space.
As for the beers, there are no taps and about 100 different bottles. Many regional and better-known domestics are represted, such as Rogue, Stone, O'Fallon, Schlafly, etc. As for imports there are several countries represented by brewers like Kasteel, Ayinger, Delrium (Huyghe), etc.
The barkeep was friendly and had a good grasp of the beers. While I was there thay had a professional photographer taking pictures of all their beers to be displayed on the website.
The food at Millstream is pretty good. I had a French Dip and fries, although they were out of their specialty fries during my visit.
Overall given the hit or miss quality of Trailhead's beers, this place might be worth a look in the St. Charles area since they have a good selection of brews and a great scenic view outside.
