    The burgers are excellent, none more so than the "Royale," a carnivore's delight of grain-fed beef. Other standouts include smoked brisket tacos and a terrific roast-beef sandwich with garlic aioli. Read more

    They just re-vamped their menu! And their patio is cozy, casual, spacious, and pleasant. If you like cocktails, a good tasting menu with a great patio this place is for you.

    This might be considered a dive bar from the outside. It is not, the food was very tasty and the beer selection was excellent. Deschutes Armory XPA!

    The hummus is the best you've ever had and if you're a veg, the veggie burger with pesto and roasted peppers is fantastic!

    Excellent veg options. Fab balsamic house salad. If you like moo meat, Kobe burger is second to none. They just took pizza off their menu. Eastern club is wonderful twist on a classic. <3 you, Royale!

    Top cocktails of 2010: Try the Baltimore Eggnog. Bartender Robert Griffin follows an 1862 recipe that calls for Madeira wine, rum, cognac, eggs, sugar, nutmeg, milk and cream. (Evan S. Benn)

    Go to The Royale and order the ribs special if they have it. Excellent and only 9 bucks. Great outdoor patio when the weather cooperates. Smoke-Free indoors! Sadly - allow smoking on patio. Read more

    This is one of my favorite spots to relax and hang out in St. Louis, for dinner or after a show. Loved the chili dinner during kitchen remodeling. Pretzel hoagies from Companion complemented the meal.

    Don't eat here. The dippy melt was awful! It looked like it was made from steak-ums! The burgers are over priced for what they are. Seriously awful choice of sides. We wasted our money eating here.
