Schafly Brewbubs: St. Louis

We're going to be visiting St. Louis and would like opinions of the two locations of Schafly's brewbubs. Is one better than the other? The Tap Room and the Bottleworks both look interesting.

    The Tap Room has a better chef.

      Thanks for all the input. We were leaning towards the Tap Room.

      The Tap Room is a bar atmosphere and food with a nice sized menu.

      Bottleworks has a nice and cozy restaurant feel with a very electic menu.

      I think both are great though.

        I have been to the Bottleworks a number of times, always because someone else wanted to eat there, and I have been consistently unimpressed. The Tap Room, however, has decent food and a nice vibe. Sticky pudding is a must-order...

          The food at the Tap room is far superior to the bottleworks. Service too.

            I agree...Andy White is doing good things at the Tap Room from what I hear...and I've always liked their fish n chips...and stick y toffee pudding....

            now I'm hungry.

            I prefer the Tap Room but I am a downtown dweller. It's more of a 'bar' atmosphere. The Bottleworks is interesting...you can get a mini tour of the operations....and if you go on Weds they have a wonderful farmer's market....

              I've been to the Bottleworks several times. I enjoy the food, especially when the weather is nice and you can sit outside,.
