I went out here with my friends on a sunday. The building itself is on the historical register and appeared in the film "Escape from New York." Good to know I'm drinking where Snake Plissken stepped.
The diningroom itself was mostly empty aside from maybe a couple others, but for the most part I blamed this on two factors: One, we were drinking on a Sunday and two, downtown St. Louis is mostly dead as far as activity goes. The menu selection was good, more upscale than I was expecting. I was looking for this to be more of a burger joint. I had the monte cristo which was delicious and enormous! It doesn't reheat very well the next day, but it's amazing when it's fresh.
The selection of beers was up to Schafly's usual good standards. One of our friends had their sampler and my friend Mike and I tried out their "Extra Special Extra Bitter." The beer itself was wonderful from the tap. A nice dark color, good head, and a pleasant warmness when drinking even though it was chilled perfectly.
I'm generally a fan of the brand, so I was delighted to see the brewery (along with a little bit of the process as displayed in the dining room). This is one of St. Louis' best operations, and I would encourage anyone to check this out while they're in the area.

After going to a couple other places in St Louis this was a great way to finish a long weekend. The dining area is a cross of bistro and brewpub. Can't say that I care much for the atmos., but the place is cut up into different types of surroundings to cater to diners/locals/college students etc.(no real central theme besides the copper kettles). Quality of food and drink was very good, I had the weiner schnizel and red cabbage that was probably the best I have had anywhere. Our main waiter didn't know what was on tap but knew what was good off the menu. I had to ask another waiter what kinds of beer they had and seasonals he would suggest. I would definitely go here again, sit at the main bar, look at the copper, order some more german food and make an evening out of it with a couple friends.

If you haven't been to Schlafly Taproom, you're not from St. Louis and you definitely don't like great beer. They hold great events that market great beers from other breweries or to celebrate a style of brew. Great selection, great rotation, and a place where a large group or just 2 people can enjoy great beers!

I just started reading the Beerfly section of the website which appeals to me because I travel a lot and usually have a hard time finding a restaureants and brewpubs. This restaurant is the first one I have tried from the reviews.
Although highly rated, I thought the Tap Room's food and beer were average. Atmosphere comprising of the building and the view of the brewing equipement was quite nice.
First when we arrived at 8pm after taking a cab ride, the hostest said they were closed due to a staff traing session and I told them that that that unannounced change in the schedule was unexeptable because I had traveled so far and was so hungry and thirsty.
I ordered the Pale Ale which had no aromatice hops and tasted average, followed by the Oatmeal Stout which was better but only slightly above average.
I had the recommended fish and fries and the fries were soggy and limp, not crisp. The person that I was with ask that they be crisp when she ordered and had them put them back in the fryer and they came back crisp and tasting great. Why could they not have done that to begin with?
Nice once, but not a place that I would go back to.

I had a fantastic time at Schlafly's. Nice large space space, great bartenders, great food. Pool table and foosball table near one of the bars, a few tvs, and pretty quality jukebox as well. Biggest drawback is that the layout takes a bit of getting used to and there's empty space that is not really being properly utilized at the moment.
The beer though, you go here for the beer, not for the "design." Everything is excellent. The APA in the cask was out of this world delicious and the available only at the pub beers were definitely worth the trip.

We went at around 11pm on Friday night. We walked in and went to go to the bar side but the smoke was INCREDIBLY thick. We opted for the restaurant side where there was no one so atmosphere was kinda lame (no TVs or anything), but didn't matter. Schlafly was my number one target while in St. Louis.
The beer selection was incredible and the bartender (Paul) was willing to let us sample anything (with generous sized samples.) At first, he came across rather rude and was a bit offensive, but as we sat and talked to him, he came around. He was very knowledgeable about their beer and beer in general. I learned quite a bit from the guy.
They are apparently going smoke-free in a coupe months, so that will be nice.

My numbers are a little low, but my impression of the Tap Room is just as positive as that of any other reviewer.
The atmosphere was ok to good. The room we were in was cavernous, which would have been great if the restaurant was full, but made it feel lonely since it was less than a quarter full. Lots of wood and large windows improve the aesthetic.
Quality was quite good. Restaurant was clean and beer was fresh, far better than the bottled Schlafly that I have often had.
Service was good. The waitress was not a beer snob, but clearly knew about the different varietals and their characteristics.
Selection was excellent. From poutine to falafel, there was incredible variety. The beer selection, naturally, was reasonable, though I would have loved to have seen some of their "bottle only" items available by the glass.
Finally, the food. This was the most impressive element. Everything we had was great or excellent. The beer bread was heavy and grainy, too much so. The lamb burger was hot, tender, thick, and juicy, expertly matched with goat cheese and olive tapenade.
The value was reasonable. I thought the prices were high for relatively small quantity, but the quality was higher than I had anticipated. Be careful though--I got an appetizer, two beers in the smallest quantity, and an entree, and that was $30. Reasonable for sure, but almost pricey.
Overall, this is a great restaurant with a good selection of good beers. I recommend it for an informal dinner out.
