Came here twice during my short stay in St. Louis. Fancier atmosphere though no one cared when I rolled up in shorts and sandals. Friendly staff. Excellent tap list with a large selection. Almost all the beers on tap were quite impressive: Boulevard, Bells, Het Anker, De Dolle, Anchor and then local offerings from 4 Hands, Civil Life, and 2nd Shift. These local offerings were very impressive. Fresh kegs- wow these were good. Food is high end gastropub. Really, you need to eat here or you are doing yourself a disservice. My only qualms were that the service was always slow to almost insanely slow (one afternoon we had one server for 14 tables) and the tap list was outdated for 2 days in a row, which is annoying.

PROS: Great location, great opening hours, insanely good food, good prices, awesome beer selection, excellent local beer offerings.

CONS: slow to ridiculously slow service two days in a row that almost forced us to pay for drinks and leave before ordering dinner, outdated tap list for multiple days in a row. I asked what kegs were replacing the ones that had kicked and they did not know or said that it would take a day to put on a new keg. Are you effing kidding me? NO air conditioning in the top floor left us sweltering up in the loft where the tables are for two days in a row. The server did apologize to us and comped some of our beers since we waited 30 minutes to order our food. Not her fault. She was working FOURTEEN tables by herself.

So, turn on the air conditioning, hire more staff, and update your tap list!!! Holy cow.

A rldowntown restaurant with a great beer and wine list. I scored the food a 7 because my wifeís meal was great, but my pork belly was almost all fat, and my mustard greens were undercooked. Service was solid, and the ambiance was great for a nice night out. They also sell growlers of their draft beers for carry out. Worth a stop, even if my dinner was underwhelming.

Overview: Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar was our second night dinner destination in St. Louis. The downstairs area is mostly the bar and some limited seating; the majority of seats are in the open upstairs area. The upstairs portion was lit by a series of ugly lamps on the right (itís a nice place, but not really my style, I guess); the tables were mostly four person tables with a few bigger ones mixed in.

Service was Nathan... sincerely the best server Iíve ever had at a beer related place. He was friendly, engaging, kind towards my son, honest about the food menu and beer selection and overall just seemed like a genuine guy. When I had nerdy beer related questions, he knew the answer, or asked someone else on staff. I think he gets my first "10" in service. The selection is truly impressive, especially that around 1/3 of the beer menu is Missouri beer. Without boring you on other selection details, check out their menu on their website. Food wise, I have mixed feelings: My wifeís cheese board was the envy of our table, but my Pad Thai was pretty ordinary. My sonís grilled cheese was delicious (made with smoked gouda) but since there isnít a true kids menu here, his meal was ten dollars (and a regular kids meal portion, at that)- a grilled cheese with some chips: ten bucks. So, considering that two out of three meals were tasty, I move on to value... Iíve had similar quality cheese boards elsewhere for $12-14 dollars, and my wifeís was about $20. And: ten dollar grilled cheese. Also, they offer the following pour sizes: 4 oz.; 12 oz.; 20 oz.; 64 oz. I really wish they would ax that 64 oz. pour and get some half pints. The jump up in price from the 4 oz. to the 12 oz. is a bit much at times.

PROS: Superlative service; thoughtful and extensive selection, especially on MO beer. CONS: No kids menu or changing tables (again); inconsistent food quality; pretty murch everything is a bit on the pricey side. OVERALL: If I were wanting to check out lots of MO beer, Iíd definitely come back. I want to like the food, but for the price you donít want question marks. Parking in the area is pretty much all metered, but they do have credit card accessible meters very close by, which is a plus. About $2 for two hours of parking, I believe.

Unbeatable selection of top craft beers, particularly in the St. Louis region. A very cool place to hang out, with many interesting food options to pair with your beer.

Visited for some local beers, nice small establishment with the bar downstairs and more seating up stairs. Nice tap list with lots of local fare. Was happy that we could order 4oz servings of anything in the menu. Waitress was very nice. Tried about 10 local beers.

Nice place. I sat and the bar and didnít have any food. Sampled about 10 beers. Good selection of local things and a few national and international beers. A bit pricey, but staff was friendly and knowledgable. Nice place and worth the visit if you are in STL. I donít think they at 55 taps, maybe, but they had a good selection.

Visited late on a friday evening and was one of only a handful of customers. Pleasant upscale ambiance. I liked the chandeliers made from tree branches. The service definitely came up short. My bartender asked what I wanted as soon as I sat down then disappeared after I said I needed a second . If your bar has 55 bloody taps, at least give me 30 seconds to look at the menu. Also, this is one of those bars with a decent sized bottle list that doesnít bother to keep their menu updated. I leafed through the list, saw Hommage listed at a totally reasonable price, then was met with a chortle when I ordered it. Paperís cheap. Update your menus and donít make me feel like an asshole for ordering something youíre advertising as in stock. In the end I drank a lovely glass Cuvee Dry Hopping, paid my bill, and went to have fun elsewhere.

Gotta say I loved this place. Not your typical beer bar, thanks to the wine bar thing, I suppose, this feels more upscale, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Food was excellent, even though we didnít even try any of the cheese or charkuteries. The selection was awesome, with a long tap list having a good balance between local MO stuff and other beer. The bottle list is long and should be enough to satisfy most. Overall, a very very good place.

A good sized bar with a good looking food menu and a nice feel. A narrow building that has two tiers, the bar in the bottom area and additional seating above. Bartender was friendly and knowledgeable about the beer. Plenty of taps and bottles with all taps available in sample sizes. I did not try the food on my visit and prices were fine. A really nice bar right in downtown.
