Friday Food Critic: Trailhead

Tell us what you think of Trailhead

When it comes to restaurants, St. Charles has it covered.

We have some great local places that many would consider community gems; we have some restaurants that aren't exactly mom-and-pop but are unique to the area; and we certainly—for better or for worse—have plenty of chains lining our main streets.

But what we don't have is a consistent food critic to tell us what's good and what's not. 

That's where you come in.

We could throw some money at a professional food critic, but that's not exactly what Patch is all about. We'd much rather know the opinion of the fine folks that eat there day-in and day-out.

It's your community. You eat the food. You tell us if it passes the mark.

That's why we are introducing The Friday Food Critic, where each week we will put a different restaurant on the chopping block. You tell us how you feel about it, what dishes are good, who has the best drink specials and so forth.

This week's restaurant is Trailhead, a St. Charles microbrewery in historic downtown. 

To review Trailhead simply click on their name. You'll be directed toward their community listing in our places directory, where you can rate them on a five-star system or write a personal review.

At St. Charles Patch, we believe your words of wisdom are better than any food critic. Leave a note, tell us what you think.

having eaten at several restaurants around the louis area, i can say with some degree of certainty that Trailhead is not a note worthy establishment for dinning. The selection of micro brews and its stellar location are the only legs this restaurant has to stand on. I suppose i could drop some store bought frozen toasted ravioli into a deep fryer, and call myself a chef; but that doesn't merit me a tv show on the food network. Much the same with this restaurant. The "surf and turf" menu has nothing out the ordinary to set itself apart from anything in the st charles area. The cuts of meat are poor to fair, most seasonings consist of salt and pepper, and the "bar food" leaves one wondering why bother with cloth napkins??? A definite hot spot for the brew master, and a positive hit and miss with anyone who has a palate
