A beautiful building outshines the predictable food at Lewis and Clark's American Restaurant and Public House in downtown St. Charles.
Lewis and Clark's American Restaurant and Public House has enormous promise. It's conveniently located on busy Main Street in St. Charles and occupies a beautifully restored, three-story building. The main dining room is on the second floor, and a third-floor covered porch offers outdoor dining with a lovely view of the brick street below. Everything about the place suggests you're in for great, upscale pub-grub meal. Instead, the dishes we sampled were fine, but nothing special. The lineup includes standard salads and burgers ($7.49-$7.99), pasta (chicken pesto is $9.99), steaks (the ribeye dinner is $17.49), seafood (deep-fried jumbo shrimp for $14.99). Lewis and Clark's is a good choice for families or folks who just want a good, American-style meal in a nice atmosphere, but anyone who wants more ambitious food should look elsewhere.
