Wow what a great place...its beautiful inside. The bartender Amber was super and so knowledgeable about the menu. The draft beers are poured in iced pilsner glasses ...what a fantastic presentation. The food was awesome. We will be back. Shout out to Amber, Victoria and...Renee.... all served us and are wonderful. Very refreshing.More

A small group of friends came in for dinner last night Friday the 13th. We were seated quickly and equally greeted by our server, Sara. I am a returning customer, but others in my party it was their 1st visit. Sara did a good job...explaining and recommending some menu items. Quick and attentive in getting drinks started, with a side note, kudos to the bar staff for well made drinks. Sara was wonderful to come to the table, refresh drinks and check on satisfaction. This place has killer burgers. I went with the Juicy Lucy and it was off the chain. Served with what is hands down IMHO the best onion rings in Central Florida, this made for a good meal in a unique atmosphere. THANKS again Sara for your GREAT service for my out of town friends.More

Went to Square one for dinner earlier tonight, food was excellent and our server Karlie was very attentive and helpful with choosing what to eat! The onion ring appetizer is totally worth it, for only $5 they where the best I’ve ever had me and...my husband even had some to take home! Will be coming back next time we’re in town!More

This was the worst visit ever in a long string lousy food and bad service. I used to pay more for quality food and service. But I guess I will just have to snooze this restaurant for at least 30 days and just hope that...they can get their act together.More

Waitress said we could share a burger, fries, and beverage that was the Tuesday special $12. Husband ordered an extra beverage. After food was delivered, she informed us that she made a mistake and was in trouble with her manager as sharing wasn't allowed. Waitress...said she'd have to charge us extra. We asked for the bill and indeed we were charged extra and also jyped as no side was served. Really poor customer service by management. Plenty of other restaurants in the area to choose from.More

Being there a couple of times and Burgess where delicious. This time very disappointed! Order burger medium and got it well done! Meat didn't had no taste at all, great for vegetarian, but not for beef eaters! Onion rings over salted and I like salt!...And on the some great reviews on their Chili,? I guess does reviews are from people that don't know what great Chili should taste like! But, worst of all my daughter came with family and my wife suggested Mexican and I talked her to Square 1. Just don't know what happened to this place like most restaurant in the area!More

We used to have a Square One near us and it was pretty close to being perfect. I talked to the manager and complimented him on the way they did things. The sandwiches were always excellent, and the sides were also. I am a connoisseur...of onion rings and they were the model for how onion rings should be made. We only had an inattentive waiter once, but the manager fixed that very quickly. Manager always stopped by to say hello and ask how the food was. Fast forward, and all the Square 1s around us disappeared. It was never inexpensive to go there, but the food had been impeccable at ours. We drove from Largo to The Villages for my birthday just to have some onion rings for lunch. The place looked the same, but you could tell that it was not as attentive to the details as soon as we walked in. While our waitress was good, she also disappeared for a while and it took me a long time to get a simple beer. My burger was cooked as I ordered it, but I could tell that they were not paying attention to the quality. Both our sandwiches were presentable, but they lacked that crisp attention to detail which I had previously admired. The onion rings, while good, were perhaps a bit overcooked. It wasn't quite insouciance, but carelessness that pervaded the place. I sensed that "good enough" was now the prevailing feeling...and that's poison for a restaurant. I would like to see supervision from the managerial staff return it to the really excellent quality that I had seen in it before. You have a great idea, quality products, (and I will be the first to suggest that lots of people seem not to notice the differences,) but the execution and attention to detail should make the production better. I look forward to trying this again soon. They are still better than 90% of the casual restaurant food available. Still there's no reason for some of the reviews I have read.More

Great experience from the beginning. Amber was very welcoming as soon as I sat down. Prepared with suggestions and friendly service that I consider some of the best I’ve received. The ambiance was unique and fun, all relative to being in a bar and grill...that specializes in burgers. The food was incredible and full of flavor. Amber suggested the Philly which came on a pretzel bun, she was right, it was incredible. I had a side of tator tots and a strawberry shake. I will be back, for the food and definitely for the service.More
