    Lewis & Clark's American Restaurant & Public House: Good Food & a Great Setting in a Historic Bldg.

    Lewis and Clark's

    On my husband, Allan's, recommendation, Jill and I ate lunch in Saint Charles at Lewis & Clark's American Restaurant and Public House. We thank Allan for his fine suggestion.
    As we were walking up to the restaurant, a horde of people were getting off of a Tourist Bus and literally running to get there first. Instead of waiting to be seated, as the sign indicates, they rushed in and took seats. It was the best thing that could happen because we were then escourted to the non-smoking section on the second floor with windows overlooking picturesque Main Street.
    Even though Lewis & Clark's is located in an historic building, it has a contemporary menu and decor.
    Our young waiter was very personable, efficient, and polite.

    Favorite Dish: Jill and I both ordered WHITE CHILI (made with turkey or chicken and the broth plus white beans and hot pepper and chili powder.) It was fabulous. I had Cheese Casadea that was also very good plus lemonade.
    The WHITE CHILI would have been enough because it was a large bowl and so delicious.

    Lewis & Clark's American Restaurant: Try the Spicy Creole Gumbo

    We had the Spicy Creole Gumbo with a House Salad. The Gumbo was spicy and good.
    This combo came with some hot bread. My cousin who took us to this place had the French Dip, a sandwich with sliced prime rib and cheese. All of this was very good. Our server was attentive and helpful. We were there when it opened at 11AM so we sat inside, but the outside area was getting busy when we left. If we go again, we want to try sitting outside, it's very pleasant.
    You can't go wrong picking Lewis & Clark for your meal when you're in St. Charles.

    Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the Spicy Creole Gumbo - it was flavorful, creamy and yet light.

    Great food at affordable prices! Also look for their sister restaurant Trailhead Brewing Co. located just down the street on Main at Boonslick.

    Favorite Dish: The while chili is delicious! But that is only one item...everything is delicious and the service is very good.

    Lovely place for a pleasant light lunch on a spring day - with indoor seating for those thunderstormy days as well. Attentive and cheerful service - I had ice tea, and the server did excellent duty in keeping my glass full! Right on S. Main Street in the historic center.

    Trailhead Brewing Co.: Good Brewpub

    by WulfstanTraveller Updated Feb 8, 2014

    This is a good brewpub in an interesting old brick building that looks like it was once a mill, with water wheel right on a creek. It has been converted inside with modern accoutrements, seating on a couple different levels with some looking down into the brewing equipment through glass. There are different area to sit, breaking up the place into an interesting warren of different areas. Overall, this conversion of a really neat old building gave it a great character and ambience.

    Beer quality is good, not great, fairly pedestrian in style and quality with beers we had ranging from very good to mediocre.

    Service seemed good and friendly and it has a good kids' menu. This, combined with layout, decor, etc., make it a good kid- and family-friendly place.

    Food was good but not outstanding, ranging from some things that were very god to others that were less than mediocre. Perhaps somewhat odd considering that I am from California and was in Missouri, the nacho plate which we shared as an appetizer was excellent but the BBQ ribs, which they claimed to be baby back, were not baby back. Cole slaw was decent - the vinegary kind, a style which I do love, but it was not that good and seemed a bit old. Pulled pork was very good.

    Favorite Dish: Nachos and pulled pork.

    One evening we had a fantastic meal. We won a little money at the casino and decided to spend a bit on a nice meal. We ate at a St. Charles Vintage House Restaurant and Wine Garden. We ate out of doors on patio. Beautiful night. Great food. Wonderful service. I suggest you try this place.

    Riverside Sweets: Great Ice Cream and Candy

    by WulfstanTraveller Written Feb 8, 2014

    This is a great ice-cram and candy store. They make great candy of various types and have great ice cream. They also sell trinkets and whatnot but the real reason to go here is the great selection of candy and ice cream.

    River City Coffee & Tea: Coffee on Main Street

    place of refreshment

    A popular place for visitors to St. Charles, this coffee shop also seems to attract many bicyclists who need a "jolt of joe" before setting out to pedal the KATY trail.
