Visited Square One on Friday 7/9.
Great little place on the corner. From the outside you can't tell how much space they have. As soon as you walk in there is a bar to the right, and some high tables on the left. They have a back room that is quite open, as well as an outdoor patio. The walls of the backroom are a combination of a local artists designs that also encorporates and exposed brick look.
For wandering in on a Friday night at 6:30, we were seated right away. The gf and I decided to do up some appetizers - mahi mahi tacos, an artisean meat/cheese plate, and a three dip plate. The food was very nice and I liked on the menu how it suggested which beer to pair it with. You could tell that a lot of the diners there were there for the food, not necessarily the beer.
Beer selection was pretty impressive for such a small place. They offered roughly 8-10 beers - a saison, triple, stout, pale, two different IPA's, and several others that I can't recall. These aren't beers that you are going to bowl yourself over to get, but they were solid offerings.
Our waitress was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The manager came over to ask us how our experience was that evening. Overall, I was very impressed with how they conducted business.

Located near Lafayette Square Park, this brewpub is in a nice neighborhood, with lots of small shops. There is a medium-sized bar in the front and reasonable seating in the back. We ate here on a Saturday afternoon. The beer selection was varied, with plenty of British-style brews, along with a Dopplebock. I had a sampler and a brown ale, and all of them were well made and tasty, although not particularly remarkable. The food, however, was exceptional. Interesting choices, very well prepared, and all solidly good. The service was friendly and well-timed (not to slow and not too fast). Great place.

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.
