"I had not been there in a while, but I always like the warm, inviting atmosphere and the really great food. I loved the swordfish special and my friends' pork tenderloin entree which I tasted. I highly recommend going. It is perfect on a cold Chicago winter night!!!"

St. Louis" most ardent food-lovers are regulars at SqWires. Our seasonal menu, created by owner and executive chef, Bethany Budde, features creative interpretations of classic American cuisine, with the freshest seafood, prime meats, and indulgent desserts with our trademark simplicity and richness of flavor. Located in the historic Lafayette Square neighborhood, in the former Western Wire Factory, SqWires preserved original 19th century elements and added handcrafted fireplaces, comfortable leather banquette seating, restored overhead factory pulley systems, industrial ceiling fans and exposed brick and beams to create a notable setting for you to meet and eat and drink. Our outdoor dining is available to enjoy the St. Louis weather in spring and summer.<br />With an extensive martini menu, ten local craft beers on draft, 50 wines and full bar the choices are sure to please, as is live blues and jazz Thursday through Sunday.

"Though they refunded my entree and gave me a gift certificate, my salmon entree was one of the worst I have had in some time. It was over salted and peppered as was the side. They redid it and was cooked too raw. My guest's filet was also under cooked. I had a wonderful lunch at Olio. I would go there instead."
