finally stopped in to check the place out. the bar was spot clean, dressed up well with hanging glasses, lots of wood work, bottles across the wall, and a vintage ladder along the bar for grabbing bottles. the place was spotless and I was helped above and beyond (granted, I was the only one in there). the bartenders knew their beer. The Bridge has 55 taps, 200+ bottles, and growlers to go (growlers are pricey). i have yet to try the food however the menu looks solid. I plan on returning and look forward to it. (515 characters)

Made several trips here during a recent trip to St Louis.

V - Hip, modern décor. Makes a very good first impression. Bar is on the right side with an impressive number of taps, many of them local offerings - Perennial, 2nd Shift, 4 Hands, Civil Life, Urban Chestnut. Nice display of interesting and sometimes rare bottles on the wall behind the bar.

Q - Everything is top notch here - appearance, menu offerings, beer & wine offerings, service

S - Even when busy the bar service was excellent - generally two bartenders and an attendant for a relatively small bar (about 10 seats). Bartenders were friendly and knowledgable and could make suggestions for beers when posed with a question about the selection.

S - Beer selection was quite good. I really liked the breadth of local offerings on tap being a visitor to the area. Excellent bottle list also - was able to try Perennial 17 from the cellar. Lots of different styles represented - not just 30 taps of IPA's - saisons, sours, IPA's, stouts, wheats, Belgians...quite diverse.

F - Menu looked outstanding front to back. I stuck with simple cheese and charcuterie selections for some lighter fare. Unusual and quite tasty popcorn appetizers too. Plenty to choose from for all sizes of appetite and food preferences - not just simple bar food.

O - Really nice place that we were lucky enough to find. Great location downtown within walking distance of the stadiums/arenas and the arch. (1,457 characters)

Went there with my wife for the first time last week. I had been meaning to go there for a while, but was finally motivated to do so by the bartender at one of my regular brewpubs.

Great looking place, 55 brews on tap. Mostly microbrews but with a few good, hard to find on tap Belgian brews. We tried about six different 4oz. pours before ordering a pint each with our dinner. The food alone would be worth a trip to this restaurant/bar even without the great selection of beer. They seem to make most of their food from scratch including several different pickled veges of which we liked the cornichons best. Very nice mix & match cheese and charcuterie plates.

This place is the opposite of what most locals prefer, which is Bud Light and toasted ravioli. We are very happy that David Bailey, who is a well respected restauranteur with several other successful restaurants, opened the Bridge Tap House. Highly recommended. (933 characters)

Stopped in for a couple of quick samples of some local brews.

About 40-45 taps with emphasis on regional beers. I really liked that drafts are available in 4 oz and 10/16 oz depending on style since this allowed me to try several new ones during a relatively short visit.

Reasonable bottle list with a fair amount of variety.

Didn't try the food, but the service was attentive and helpful.

Enjoyed the vibe in the place and would return if in the area... (460 characters)
