This place is massive. Multiple entrances, multiple levels and multiple bars. What was worrisome was how empty it was. The beer is very average. I didn't stay long, which is too bad because it's location is very close to many downtown hotels and the Arch.

Very easy to find in the Laclede Landing section of St. Louis, I was excited to visit this brewpub. The canned beer is excellent, and I had high hopes. At the restaurant, however, I was somewhat disappointed. The beer selection was a nice, but limited mix of mostly German styles. The Helles and the Maibock were both respectable and tasty. But, whereas the beer was solid, the food, atmosphere, and service were all substandard. First, although they were not busy, waitstaff stood by chatting, rather than seating my family for several minutes. The service was then slow, inattentive, and mostly disinterested. Beer was served out of a clearly chipped glass. The food was acceptable pub fare, but, frankly, on par with most chain casual dining restaurants.
I liked the good beer, but I won't be going back again to eat.

In the Landing area downtown on the river. Very cool place. A lot bigger place, space wise, than I was expecting. We ran in before meeting up with some friends to just have a quick beer but wish we would have had a chance to stay longer and try more beers. The one beer I had was there Honey Wheat. It was good. I hope to be able to go back at some point.

right in the heart of the downtown area, right on the river, this place has the perfect location (aside from no parking). the place was totally dead on a monday evening, which i dont hold against them. bartender was really nice, generous with samples, and chatty. beers were all good, pumpkin lager being excellent. just had appetizers, but was more than happy with what we got to eat. the building has a ton of character, so the atmosphere is pretty cool, even though it was empty inside. would be a nice place to bring a first date i thought to myself. imperial pilsner was also an impressive brew, and prices were decent. ill be back, even though nothing stood out as earth shattering in the beer department, i think the place has a lot going for it. B+

This place is located on a little waterfront dealie downtown, right next to the arch. The area is touristy, but also filled with loud music attractive, drunken young people, so I assume there's a decent amount of townies there, too. Anyhow, I went late, so I can't judge the food or dining atmosphere. As a bar, however, it was pretty pleasant in spite of being loud and packed. The crowd seemed pretty okay, the bartenders were friendly, and nothing at all was in any way offputting...

...Except the beer, which sucked. They had a gigantic selection and all the pints were very reasonably priced, but of the four beers that I sampled, the best was just a notch above tolerable.

Don't get me wrong: this wasn't the Waterloo, Iowa Beck's Bar and Grill, where the beer actually tastes worse than the stuff that gets pumped out of a Mr. Beer kit. But everything *did* taste quite homebrewy, and not in a good way. In the vienna, for example, the hop profile was non-existent and the carbonation was so intense that I thought it was tearing the enamel off my teeth. The stout had a decent aroma and okay hop profile, but there was a strong aftertaste of dish rag.

Still, I got no beef with the place as a place. Some friends of mine went earlier in the day and the said the food was good, so maybe it's a fine place to visit. Just, don't get the beer.

One of my various bar hop stops on my latest trip to St Louis. This place was pretty nice although not spectacular. Selection was limited, but there were five new beers for me to try on tap and some stuff in bottles, but I was mostly interested in the on tap stuff. The dry Irish stout was quite good. Service was good, they were friendly and kept up with our orders, and also put up with our goofing around a little. It's certainly worth a stop if you're down on the landing. Definitely try the stout!

I stopped in here with 3 others while waiting to attend a wedding reception at the 4 seasons up the block. It was mid afternoon so this may not reflect what the place is like on a saturday night or during a big game. It was pretty quiet in the late afternoon, with college football on TV and plenty of places to sit.

Was greeted in a friendly way, which was true of pretty much everywhere I went during my trip to St. Louis. Had an Irish Stout which I thought was good, not great, and I reviewed it separately. Also had some chicken quesadillas which were good enough, typical bar food. Service was nice and quick enough for our purposes.

The vibe in here seemed to be a combination of tourist bar and sports bar...not super beer intensive for a brewpub. The whole strip on Laclede's landing is pretty touristy so I wasn't surprised..I'm from NYC and went to high school pretty much in Times Square so I know touristy! They had 5 beer styles on tap from a list of about 12 they make. Somewhat disappointed that the more interesting beers were not on offer. Didn't ask about other makers but from what I've read it's pretty much Bud so there you have it.

Not sure if it was because I was in a party of 4 that ordered 4 beers and 4 apps but I was given my 2nd promptly and without charge. That was cool enough. Buybacks are always welcome!

In short, you could do worse than to stop in here on a quiet afternoon. I was dragged to the Lou for a wedding and I was determined to try some new beers I can't get on the East Coast at any opportunity. The Stout was a solid B.

Atmosphere: A nice location on the Landing in St. Louis, right off the cobblestone road. It is a large place with an upstairs and downstairs bar. I have gone several times and the atmosphere has varied. It gets crowded on weekends and after Chicago/St.Louis sports games. It is a cozy and comfortable place to go for a drink or to be entertained.

Quality: The selection could be better along with the beers they brew there. With that being said, the beer is much better than the Budweiser that packs every bar in St. Louis.

Service: This is the downfall for me. I have been there several times and have been treated like crap twice by the bartender. One time was understandable as I was wearing a Blackhawks jersey after they beat the Blues. The other was completely unwarranted. Very snappy for no reason, it was the same guy both times. No bueno.

Selection: Selection is okay as they have their homebrews on tap. For the most part they have most popular styles and a few seasonals.

Food: I cannot tell you how the food was, haven't tried it.

Value: Comparable to any other bar on the Landing. Reasonable.

I went in there for the first time since 2005 for lunch and it was better than I remember. The surrounding area, building, and atmosphere are great- the only reason I won’t give it a 5 in that category is because of the crowd this place gets a lot of the time- just a lot of tourists, sports-related crowds (not far from the Ed Jones Dome), and drunk assholes on the weekends. They have two multi-story buildings (one of which is open only certain times) and the patio in between. The service is friendly but not super knowledgable about beer (called their gold medal-winning Golden Pilsner "like Budweiser"). I got a sampler, which has all 5 taps for $5.50- there were only 4 on at the time so he gave me 2 of whichever I liked best. That was cool. The food is so-so pub food and instead of fries they have this other little weird tater tot-looking thing, albeit with a less crispy outside and softer potato inside. The selection is hard to rate at brewpubs, and there are just 5 taps here, 3-4 of which never change. The beer is mediocre but not bad. They do growler pours, and also have what appear to be bombers for sale by the door but those are just decorative. Part of the reason this place is good is because of where it is, but that also serves as a downside because of the clientele it draws. If the beer or food were better, that would be easier to forgive. It’s just hard not to imagine a better brewpub here.

The draw is $2 pitchers of their own creations. But if they run out of pitchers (which are only 32oz) it becomes $2 per glass. Not a bad price, but it is misleading, and happens all to often.

Had a chance to try the Irish Stout and the Black Pilsner. The former was slightly above average, the latter was outright enjoyable. And they did win at GABF for their Golden Pilsner, so they must be doing something right in terms of beer.

They do carry beer other than their own, but that is essentially limited to Bud and Bud Light tallboys.

They have multiple sections, so you can avoid the college-student filled dancing areas and blaring music to a certain extent. Still, pretty much the entire place is a bit loud, and the non-club portions seem to be basement-like in terms of dankness.

The staff is alright, but not especially attentive or helpful. As long as you're willing to flag a bartender down, you'll be fine.

Located right in Old St. Louis, on an old cobblestone road. Everything about the place has an old-timey feel, and that's good. It fits right in with all the other shops and restaurants in the area. The bar is dimly lit, and everything is wooden, from the bar to the floors to the walls. There are a few tables outside, and that is where I spent the majority of my time here. The service was good. The waitress was very polite, in that Southern hospitality type of way. We had an infant in tow and they even brought out balloons for him to play with. It is a small brewpub, so the selection is not too large. The beer is pretty good though. We had rounds of the Honey Wheat ale and the Irish Stout. The Honey wheat was decent, and paired well with the chewy unsalted pretzels and mustard we ordered. I was pretty impressed by the Irish Stout. Very solid for the style, and I would love to have it at my disposal regularly. The food was good, and the cost was relatively low. We stopped in here on a whim, but I'm very glad we did. I would recommend this Brewpub to anyone who will be in the area.

This place is in a neat little part of town on a cobblestone road.

There were 5 different styles to choose from, most of which were German-inspired. I had the Black Pils and a sample taster of the rest of the taps. The Black Pils was quite good but the rest of the beers I found to be very average or below average.

I was disappointed at the lack of creativity in the styles that were available - no IPA, nothing seemingly over 5% ABV and nothing even remotely unique or interesting aside from the Black Pils, which simply tasted like a porter.

The bartender was nice and friendly but not very knowledgeable about beer styles in general, which was disappointing.

Did not have any food here...

After walking around the Arch and the river, headed over to Morgan Street since it was the closest brewery.

Atmosphere is kind of just a bar save for the buffalo head on the wall. (Hmmmm...14 different flavored vodkas. Porbably not a place really dedicated to beer and fine spirits.)

I had a sampler set while the others in my group had full pints. None of the beers were anything other than average. The stout was thin of body but nice flavor. The Honey Wheat was really sweet and honey flavored. The Krystal? In the home of the world's best selling lager, why make a boring lager? The Alt bier was nothing even close to style. It was sweet and cloying. Altbier is typically hopppy, or at least much hoppier than you tend to think of German beer. The Decade was the best, but kind of a standard pale. The menu described it as Very Hoppy. Not really. Standard west coast pale ale hoppy and nowhere near a standard IPA IBU. Only five on tap.

I can't recomment it.

Well I decided to give Morgan street one more chance having previously visited. Not to my suprise the experience was lackluster to say the least. The food was very good as was the case on my last visit. They do a good job with the pizza and toasted ravioli and the servers are attentive and helpful but the bartenders are absolutely. clueless when it comes to beer. They acted as if I was troubling them by asking questions about all the beers they had on tap (all five of them) but I'm sure that's because they were tired of not knowing the answe. They were better suited to. Work at a bar that serves Busch light in the can then a brewery.
The atmosphere is nice though not lively, its a nice area to visit if you ever find yourself in st.louis MO. The only beer worth trying at Morgan street in my opinion is the oatmeal stout and even that isen't anything to write home about. Overall its a quiet place and an interesting venue but not worth the trip if your looking for a quality brewpub.

I can't really vouch for the food, but I thought the place was fun when we went by for a beer sampler. The beers are good, if not outstanding (the X lager, their anniversary beer, was the highlight). They only had five brews on tap, however - wish they'd had more. But at least the sampler was generous and hit all they had on tap. The restaurant is a little run down looking, though not unpleasantly (though the bathroom really could use some work). The staff was friendly, however, and seemed to enjoy talking with the kids who were in with families (and handed out balloons). Prices seemed fair and the customers seemed wholesome and satisfied.

Went with the fam on a Saturday night. The outside tables had a few diners but the inside was DEAD. As in three occoupied tables at 7PM on a Saturday dead. WTF? I began to wonder if there was a reason no one goes here.

The atmosphere is eclectic as the tables had flowers and were set up like a classy restuarant but several tvs had the Cardinals game on. The music was atrocious and I suppose that's why no one goes here. At one point I heard Lipps Inc. "Funky Town," followed by Thomas Dolby's "Blinded by Science." Eew.

The food is fairly expensive ($18 for an average entree) but the portions are large. Pints are $4.25 which I'm told is expensive but I'm from Boston so I'm accustomed to overpaying for everything. The meatloaf was good but the chicken quesadilla blew. It tasted like a hot pocket stuffed with chicken from a can. Our server was very attentive, but again there were only three tables to choose from.

Despite calling itself a brewery there were only 5 beers on tap. Mostly unexciting macro immitations such as a honey wheat, pale lager, etc. I had an Irish Stout which I found to be light for the style but enjoyable and highly drinkable and a Vienna lager which was decidedly average.

The worst part of this brewpub was that it lacked any real excitement about beer. It seemed like a desolate sports bar that just happens to brew their own beer. They serve beers in blank, generic pint glasses! Take some pride in your beer.

Seven of us came into Morgan Street on a Sunday at about 11AM. They sat us in the most inconvenient way (3 round tables pushed together) even though they had plenty of empty seats.

On draft were the honey lager, dopplebock, steam, krystal, and red. I order a sampler and started with the lightest (and I'm glad I did, read on). The steam beer and the the krystal were both good, the red and honey just ok. I was the first one to get to the doppelbock, and upon smelling it, I knew there was something wrong. I sampled it, and held my tongue until someone else taste. My girl smelled it, and hit it right on the nose when she said it smelled like sour yogurt. Yep, there was something wrong with this beer. I'm a homebrewer, and this was beyond any infection I've ever had. I didn't come near the rest of my sample of that.

We mentioned the yogurt-beer to our server, and he made up for it with a free pint. I only hope they did something with the rest of that batch/keg/whatever.

The food was good. The beer pretzels were chewy and delicious, but the caesar salad had way too much dressing on it, and tasted like it only had one note (mayo). We added some of the pretzel-mustard to it, and it improved. I had the St. Louis Smokehouse Sandwich - Honey smoked turkey, smoked mozzarella and applewood smoked bacon on seven-grain bread with tomato, onion, pickle and spicy mayo. i got the mayo on the side. The sandwich didn't end up needing much of the mayo, the cheese and the meat were plenty flavorful. They shorted the tomato and lettuce though, it needed double what it had on the plate to make a good sandwich.

The atmosphere was cool. It it an old building, and the brickwork, etc shows, which gives it some character. You can see right into the brewing operations, and someone was back their cleaning the filters when I walked by. The bathrooms are upstairs, and I can't speak for the women's, but the men's was a little scary.

Overall, not bad. It looks like this place would be packed on a Friday or Saturday night, based on the area it's in. I wouldn't make it a regular affair, but if I lived in the area I'd visit from time to time.

Nice atmosphere. No loud music; helpful, freindly staff. Had a sampler on a quick visit recently. The honey wheat was rather tasteless; or perhaps just too cold. Things got better...slowly. The red lager actually had some hops, so it was to my taste and the doppelbock was very good. The Irish Stout was not quite up to par for the style, but the Oktoberfest was representative. The beers were good enough that I would return. But mostly the atmosphere would bring me back. Stop in some time you won't be disappointed(unless your from San Diego!).

well morgan street is like the jekyll and hyde of restaurant/bars. during the day it has a nice down to earth, quiet atmosphere and not alot going on.. on a weekend night, you would think its the new years eve, its crazy bedlam.

only negative part about it is the smoking, it sucks and stinks up the place especially when you want to eat, or review a beer.

beers on tap are decent, the irish stout and the dopplebock were good, the honey wheat was decent.

service is good, our waitress was nice and friendly, it was dead in there so that probably helped

beer selection on tap was only their own beers, and they had some budweiser products in bottles, so the selection was average, and the food was limited as well. food was good though.

value was reasonable, wasn't super pricey, and was a nice treat for the fiancee and myself

The atmosphere around Morgan Street Brewery is great on Laclede's Landing in St Louis. The brick paved streets are very nostalgic to St Louis as is the view of the Arch from almost anywhere in the downtown area. We sat outside in the bistro setting on the sidewalk and enjoyed the city scenery. Coming from Florida, it was nice to sit outside without sweating profusely in the 70 degree weather.

The beer was great! I tried the Octoberfest first which had a bold yet very tasty blend of spice. Next I tried the Irish Stout which had a definite dry and coffee like flavor. I was quite impressed with both beers. There is nothing better than drinking a pint of beer outside on a sunny day.

The beer is the main attraction here and in my opinion was pretty good. The food was edible but we ordered sandwiches and the buns were black, burnt black. I don't mean a little crispy either, these buns could have been passed off a bricks! How they got past the cook and then the server without being noticed I could not figure out. I rarely ever send anything back to the cook, but this time I was quite surprised that our food could have made it to the table like this. The waitress was very kind and took the sandwiches back and ordered new ones for us, but by the time the new ones arrived everyone else had finished their lunch and was ready to go. So, take my advice, they don't care too much about how their food looks, they will send anything out there and hope it does not get returned, but like I said, we really went there for the beer and it was pretty good.

I would return here for a few pints but not for food.

Morgan Street Brewery seems to be a bit underrated on BA. The place is in a quite interesting part of town right off of the riverfront, with a very active nightlife.

the atmosphere is old brewpub with a touch of sports bar (only a couple TVs with games playing). the mix of people there were somewhat diverse, with budweiser drinkers and beer lovers alike.

service is prompt and friendly. no complaints.

selection is decent. there are five taps available, with three standard and two rotating. the beers themselves were decent to great.

food was good. nice mix, pretty standard options for a brewpub.

I visited today for lunch. It was definitely really quiet inside, and most visitors were sitting outside. Pretty standard restaurant/bar feel. A subtle smokiness lingers in this place, even though no one was smoking.

Service was good. There weren't that many people so it was easy to get service. On a weekend evening you can forget about it.

Selection is fairly limited. They have 5 beers on tap, all basically German Inspired Lagers which is really boring. It's like they buy those homebrew kits and make them in bulk.

Food here was great. I got the St Louis Smokehouse Sandwhich which had smoked turkey, smoked mozerella, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, a pickle spear, and spicey mayo (very good). Also comes with a side of conicals (I think that's what they're called). These are neat, they are kind of like tater tots, in that they're fried and crispy on the outside, but when you bite into them it's mashed potatoes on the inside. They were pretty good, but the idea of them is what got me excited.

I've rated the value as a bit pricey. The food is basically what I've come to expect to pay, and the pints weren't outrageous for what I've paid in a bar either. My problem is that I was charged $4 for a pint of beer that quite frankly is sub par. I can stomach paying $4 and much more for good beer, but this should be $2 max.

The problem with Morgan street is that they have their hands in everything. It's a club upstairs and a brewpub downstairs. As a result, they cater to a shit drinking crowd and make poor lagers to suit the palate of the masses. Food is good, and as long as you're not there in the evening to avoid college kids clubbing, it can be enjoyable. You may want to run over to Schlafly and grab a beer when you're done though.

I have to say this is one of my least favorite BrewPubs ever for so many reasons. The big three would have to be cleanliness, poor overall service and none of the beers there were that great. The nicest thing I really have to say about this place is that it is in a great location. It was beautiful day in St. Louis the day my wife and I decided to check this place out. We got there and their outside seating area was a mess some of the tables were locked but just random tables mind you and there was trash all over the place. We went inside and the first person we met was a manager that also seemed to be covering as a hostess. Well at least she was bossing a lot of people around. She said there was no seating but it looked like there were plenty of open tables to me. I said that was fine I just wanted to sample some beers and that was it. She referred me to the upstairs bar. We got there and the bartender said they did not carry all their beers up here so we went down stairs and got one of the dirty tables outside we waited for a waitress for a while but one did not come. So I went inside and ordered a plank of beer the bartender was very arrogant but I got my beer in five dirty sample glasses. Right after that a waitress finally came over and helped us. She was very nice but did not know much about the beers. She also stated that their service was a little lacking and apologized. The food wasn't bad but to expensive for what it was. I strongly suggest giving this place a miss.

Atmosphere- DIRTY!

Quality- Poor.

Service- One good waitress does not out weigh the rest of a horrible staff.

Selection- The usual domestics.

Food- Overpriced but alright.

Value- Go somewhere else with your money.

Morgan Street Brewery is located downtown St. Louis in Laclede's Landing not too far from the arena on Morgan and 2nd St. The brick roads there are an adventure. There is a pay lot very near the brewpub.

The interior is several levels, with the bar/restaurant on the ground floor. There is a banquet and game room upstairs, as well as a dance club (that is a first for me) and biergarten. The brewing equipment is viewable behind the bar, and a chalkboard shows what beers on are on tap.

Morgan Street features 5 beers and all are on the lighter side. I wouldn't go as far as to say they are interchangeable but the variety was lacking some. They range from Lager to Altbier and Vienna and back to Lager again. There is a sampler available as well.

Service was good on a late Thursday afternoon. According to the bartender they got really busy in the evenings so I was happy to be there when I was. She knew the beers alright (despite not being a drinker) and was friendly.

I did not try any food on this visit.

Overall I would probably go here again if catching a Blues game, but if given a choice I would probably hit Schlafly first when in the downtown area.

We visited Morgan Street Brewery on a trip out from St. Louis from Chicago. We're pretty big on beers and have frequented many breweries in our own area.

The first thing I noticed was that this place really didn't have a "brewery" feel, but more of a night club / young atmosphere. That being said, I felt that the beer quality was being made more for quantity for college kids than for quality.

I felt that the beer was extremely watered down, the pale ale lacked any hoppiness or flavor, the lager was a slightly better than a miller lite and we really didn't enjoy the selection at all. Either they had watered their beer down or the kegs were old... either way, I wasn't impressed and neither was the group of people I was with.

We got to the place around 10pm, and if you get there at that time on a Friday night, forget about getting a waitress. We were passed by numerous time by the waitstaff without even a hello or can I help you. It was all push your way up to the bar and try and get a drink.

I'm sure if you're looking more for the nightclub scene and the college scene this place is for you, in that respect, it was pretty happening. However, if you're going to this place to try the beer, do yourself a favor and drive a little further to Schafly's, you'll be a lot happier with your choice.
