Great Great Good Great Great
IPA and Scotch Ales were both great. IPA, great hops, Scotch, great malt. Light Squared not very good according to my BUD drinking companion. Reuben was good. The beer soup was also tasty. The Nachos were pretty bland. I think there may have been 3 or 4 pieces of meat chucks, very mild and not too much salsa and maybe a tsp of sour cream.

Had their sampler. Particularly liked the Pale Ale and IPA. Would have preferred the IPA with more hops but as brewed a nice balance.

Good Good So So Lousy Lousy
The service at this place was absolutely horrific! On top of that, the food was nothing special. You can get a better similar fare, better brew, and pleasant service at Alandale's in Kirkwood. This place was a joke. A party of 4, with a reservation at 7:30 was not seated until 9. The entire bar full of people waiting for tables, was empty, and new walk-ins were being automatically seated. We were assigned a large table, for our oh-so "large" group, that was not being vacated. Two people remained, wanted dessert and drinks, and they have every right too that. So instead of making us stand there seating couple after couple, push two tables together for our group! It is not rocket science. We heard "it will only be a few minutes," for an hour and a half, come on. Once seated it took 20 minutes to just get our drinks, and at least 45 to order. I will not be back. I can spend my money better some place else. Learn the business or get out. I don't expect this place to last.

I had heard of Square One and wanted to find the address. Google brought me to this page and I read the comments below with a growing sense of alarm, but am pleased to report that the female bartenders in question below (Jessica and she-who-shall-remain-anonymous) are no longer employed at this establishment.

Also, I don't know the circumstances surrounding the visits with negative connotations, but my overall experience was quite pleasant, including my conversation with management.

Don't write them off yet; if things were bad before, they appear to have changed since.

Opening a brewery in St. Louis is not an easy feat- and Square One has pulled it off beautifully. Sister brewery to Augusta Brewing Company, Square One is located on Lafayette Square. Beautiful interior and patio area, great food, and terrific beer. It's been added to my revisit list whenever I am in St. Louis.

Not much of a beer selection on my visit because they were getting ready for a local beer festival. What I had was good. The female bartender was unattentive and rude during the few interactions I had with her. Speaking with the brewmaster for about 10 minutes was the best part of my visit.

This small brewpub is located in one of the most historically interesting sections of St. Louis. It seems to be right on the edge of the nice part--a bit farther east looked a bit creepy--I didn't investigate so I could be wrong.

I visited on Monday, 18 December 2006. I arrived at about 12:30 PM. The front room (bar) was very busy. There was only one bartender, and that is poor planning by the managment. However, that doesn't make an excuse for her poor service and obnoxious behavior. I found a seat at the bar and waited about 10 minutes before Jessica (the bartender) even acknowledged my presence (she had been within inches of me several times prior and didn't say a word to me). She said she would be right with me. I thanked her and committed my first mistake--I said, "not a problem, I'm in no hurry." Little did I know how she would take that to heart.

On tap that day were: pumpkin, dunkel, winter ale, robust porter, cask Belgian, another but I can't read my writing, light squared, pilsner, bavarian weitz, park avenue pale, IPA, and stout. I started with the winter ale and drank that after I finally got a menue--but I got a beer menue and she never did take it away--I do appreciate that. The winter was a cloudy amber ale with no head and vertually no nose. The flavor was malty but not sweet. The beer menue said it was a "strong Belgian Amber." It was really nice, but like many seasonals, one is enough.

At 1:00 the place cleared out. The service didn't improve. I never could quite figure out if the bartender had responsibilites in the back room that kept her from keeping up with the 6 of us at the bar or if she just didn't care. At best estimate it took about 25-30 minutes to get my food. While I waited I ordered the IPA--at least that's what they called it. It was a cloudy golden color. It had a foamy head with a very malty nose--but no hop. The taste was watery and not hoppy at all. The menue said it had a malty taste with a clean bitter finsh. Well, it did finish clean but not bitter. It really wasn't very good at all.

About 1/2 way through the beer, my 'burger of the week' with fries arrived. She sat it down with no napkin, silverware, apology for taking so long (but I did tell her I wasn't in a hurry--apparently she told the cook that) or anything. Jessica turned and walked away--I thought to get at least napkins but she disapeared....and was gone and gone and gone. Finally she reappeared and asked the couple next to me if they needed anything. They asked for napkins and hot sauce--the whole time Jessica is ignoring me. When she returned to deliver the couple's napkins and hot sauce--at least 10 minutes have passed since she sat my plate down--I asked if I could have some of that too. She looked at me and in a cranky voice said, 'hot sauce?' I said no, napkins and silverware? That was mistake number two. Now she was very unhappy with me. By the time she returned with silverware, one napkin and NO apology, at elast 15 minutes had passed since she sat my plate down. It was then I committed mistake number three. I asked her to take my plate back to the kithen and warm it up since it took so long. Oh My God. Now she was really angry and she made a point of letting every one know. She returned with the plate. The fries were still cold and the burger was far too juicy for a well done burger (if you get my drift) so I didn't finsh it--nor did I finish the nasty beer they called an IPA. While I contempleted the food, the bartender Jessica made quite a show of her anger toward me. At one point she was telling a couple some story, and at one point her voice got very loud and she looked at me and said, "Why would you piss off your bartender? That's just stupid." And there in that sentence you get the attitude of Ms. Jessica. I guess I think of it the other way, 'why would you piss off a patron?' THAT, Jessica is just stupid.

Once she realized that I had stopped eating, she figured my bill. She placed it on one of those little plastic trays and litterally threw it on the table. It knocked over the salt shaker. Had she offered any sort of pleasantry, apology, anything I could chalk all this up to being the lone bartender during a busy lunch. No apology, poor service even after the lunch crowd cleared, and nasty treatment complelled me to stiff ole' Jessica and leave no tip at all.

I grew up around St. Louis and get back once or twice a year. I only tried 2 of their many beers--one was very good, one was very bad. The food was only mediocre, and the service absoltely horrid. I won't make any effort to revisit this place again.

Wow, I gave an Awesome for service. I never thought I would do that. Our waitress in the bar area never let us run out of beer and the food was delivered in a reasonable length of time...and hot. Anyway, the reason we are here is the beer. I have to agree with an earlier review about their IPA. Not all that hoppy. More like an APA. However all their beers were very good and they had their APA on cask. The brewpub building and the neighborhood are both very nice. Too cold to have the outside area open to eat and drink out there but I'll be back to try it again in the summer. A very easy place to find and well worth going out of the way for. Square One has only been in business for a short period of time but it had the feel of your old favorite neighborhood bar.

I am very contradicted about this place.

The beers are OK enough. Nothing unusual, nothing really outstanding, but all fine beers. It may be a bit early in their existence to expect anything unusual at this point, however.

Food is average.

The best thing about this place is the building/courtyard. Be sure to sit in the courtyard, weather-allowing. Very unique, great environment. Also check out the "window" in the floor of the main dining room, looking into the brewhaus below. Pretty cool.

definitely worth checking out, for more than the beer.

Good Pub Grub & Outstanding beer. I had the unfiltered wheat & Belgian Red which both had good flavor and went down easy. I would highly recommend this place to any microbrewery fan visiting St. Louis.

Great food. Try the pasta with chicken and mushrooms. The IPA, barleywine, and Grand Cru were great. Broad selection of beers. The wit was not drinkable. The pils was more like a Dortmunder but generally the beers were great.

Located in an historic section of the city, the building itself is worth the trip. It has been a bar/restraunt almost continuously since the 1870's. It has been beautifully restored since a fire in 2004. I sat in the beer garden that was a pleasant place to enjoy beer on a warm evening. Square One is just a block from Lafayette Park--a nice place to stroll or drive around, especially if you like "Painted Ladies"-Victorian style homes.

The food was very good. They smoke their own meat. I had a beef brisket sandwich and it was the best brisket I had in a while. Instead of smoothering the meat with barbaque sauce, they use a light mustard. I also had two very large crab cakes as a appitizer. Their menu is divided between "micro bites", like the crabcakes and "macro bites" which are full meals.

Now, on to the least satisfactory part of my visit--the beer. A friend of mine visited Square One shortly after it opened and raved about the APA, so I was optimistic. I started with the IPA and was let down imediately. There was no hop aroma you expect from an IPA, nor was there much bitterness in the beer itself. I moved on to the ESB and the APA, and unfortunately, I was underwhelmed. In fact, I could not notice much of a difference between these three beers. They were not bad beers, they were drinkable, but I was hoping for more. Their Wit was better, a nice hazy blonde with tastes of ginger. The best was their pils--it went down very well on a hot evening. They had eleven beers on tap -- from their version of a light to a barley wine, so they have a style for everyone.

Despite my lackluster view of the beer, I'll go back. Square One has a great atmosphere. And, hopefully, since they have been open for only a few months, the beer will get better.

Easy to find place in a nice, historic district. Service, food and beer were good. Nice addition to the St. Louis pub scene.

I stopped in for a sample of beer at this new brewery. I ordered up a sample of four beers for $5. The beer menu contains the following flavors/styles: Pilsner, Tannhauser (copper ale), Krystal (American Wheat), IPA (out of stock), Lighted Square (Golden Ale), Pale Ale, ESA (Extra Special Amber), Stout and Barley Wine. I had the Krystal, a Bavarian Wheat, Pale Ale and the ESA in my sampler. I thought they were all well made beers and representative of styles, except the ESA. ESA is what I would call my attempt at an ESB that turned out too dark, but that’s beside the point. The ESA was a nice, strong, hoppy Ale that was just a bit too dark to be an ESB. Still it’s a good beer. I queried the bartender for more information about the brewery. He was a happy to oblige me. He said the bar was started by the same group that owns and manages Augusta Brewing Co. in Augusta, Mo. The brewer is John Witte (spelling) with previous experience at Trail Head Brewery in St. Charles. Atmosphere was clean and new with a slate bar, one TV in the corner, and three patrons with laptops running and a dozen patrons in total. It was a Wednesday night about 9PM. Looks like a cool place to hang out and enjoy a beer or two.
