Square One Brewery & Distillery Ratings and Reviews
The food and drink options are novel, and the quality is above average. We went for lunch with a group of five with an infant. I believe our server was having an off-day. She was attentive if we had a request, but initiated very little interaction. I would describe her as sullen in her demeanor. The overall ambience would probably be more appealing during a busier time of day.
My dad and I discovered this place about 8 or 9 years ago on one of our father and daughter trips for my birthday. We love craft beer so this was a must try since we can't get this brand back in Chicago. Our first experience was what keeps bringing us back year after year. The atomsphere, food and service was just amazing. While visiting the area with my family for a six flags weekend, I decided this is where we would go for dinner before our 4 hour journey home. The staff experience was not as amazing as it has been, but the food and beer was all amazing. Maybe the staff was just having an off day, it happens. It will not derail me from returning.
The weather was beautiful so we decided to go out for Sunday brunch where we could sit outside. After considering several options, we chose Square One. It was perfect. We had a table on the patio. The menu selections were great and the food was prepared perfectly. We enjoyed the craft beer and spirits options. Could ask for better service.
My wife and I went on Monday night for our 7th anniversary. Food was excellent, the Hawaii beer (recommended by our server) was amazing. The service was great, good cane out quick and hot. I will definitely be back, ave have recommended it to several people in the last few days.
We come here every year on our anniversary. Our reservation was not acknowledged, I am not sure if there is a point in making one. We were told a 15 minute wait before we mentioned our reservation. The hostess shrugged when we said we had a reservation. Actually the wait was 20 minutes. The rest of the service was fine. Dinner came with a side of asparagus, 2 stalks. Kinda cheap. We won't be back. Sorry to lose one of our favorite places in the city but it's not what it used to be.
We were a large group that they easily accommodated at a busy time, but the waitress was distracted and uninterested. My husband got a skunky beer and they still charged us and didn't offer replacement. Some of the entrees were good, like shrimp and grits. The fried chicken dinner was just ok and the nachos were huge but the cheese sauce really disappointing. For brewing their own beer, it was fair. We based our visit on others' reviews and were overall surprised at the experience. We live out of town so no reason to ever go back
Great food, great beer, the only issue is that the restaurant seriously is to loud. It is difficult to have a decent conversation at your table, it looks like they tried to do something with some ceiling panels in the main dining room, but it simply does not cut it.
We had an excellent experience at Square One. We were surprised by the diversity of the menu and the quality of the food. Excellent selection of beer and spirits. Mixed drinks were all hand crafted. We went on a Friday evening, it was busy but not crowded. We were surprised to see how many people were in the dining room, as conversation was easy and not too loud.
Had a reservation for a large table...it sounds like a small thing but it was so nice to have immediate seating/have a reservation honored. The service was fantastic, the food was delicious (our favorites included the Black and Tan nachos and the Shrimp and Grits), the beer was great as well! Everything was reasonably priced and the it's a great option for a group of people with different price points. Decor and ambience was comfortable/friendly.
Despite our reservation we waited an additional 20 minutes to be seated. Once we were seated, over an hour passed before we went back to the hostess station to communicate that no one had ever come to our table to wait on us. They apologized and said they would send someone right over. 15 minutes later, again, no server. We went back again to the hostess stand and finally a server came to the table. Unfortunate service.
First time here. Service was off, not very engaging nor intuitive. One of our orders was forgotten. Scotch egg tasted well seasoned, but was underwhelming due to their decision to execute it as a hard boiled egg. Soft boiled much more preferred. Some cocktails a bit overpriced.
We were very disappointed with our time at Square One this past Sunday. We made reservations the day before but yet we still waited another 20 mins, even though a ton of tables were available. The Hostess was very short with us when we asked if we could squeeze into a table of 4 with 5, we understood that we weren't able to but she was still short with us. Once seated and ordered our drinks and it to forever to order our food and then to receive our food. This was my second visit to the restaurant and I was not pleased.
The Mahi Mahi fish tacos were so spicy they were inedible. When asked for sour cream to subdue the heat it arrived room temperature, not chilled, and tasted a bit off. Had to order another dish altogether, Salmon BLT (minus the bacon), which was just okay. The lamb burger wasn't special. The drink service was incredibly slow. Our server, who was a doll & did her best, said they only had one bartender so the bar was backed up. Overall, wouldn't go back.
