We visited while out with clients for a after dinner drink and some good music, we were not disappointed on either account, we had the "Buddy Brew" which was good and saw some amazing performers while meeting new people at the table. Just a great place to enjoy fantastic live music.

I can't believe the quality of talent on show the night we went. Every act was fantastic. The food was good and the drink service was a little slow at times but a small price to pay for such a wonderful night. The only sour not was the bathroom attendant who was quite entertaining the first few visits but became... More

This was the most fun I've had in quite a very long time. My wife, who is not quite a blues fan , had a very good time also. Especially when she was serenaded by a couple band members and Buddy handed her a pick! This was our first time there so we didn't know what to expect. I read... More

We had planned on going by Buddy Guys on a recent trip to Chicago, we were lucky enough to get invited to a business related function there. The entertainment was great, good musicians who put on a great show. The food we had was a buffet style (as part of the function) and was all good. Overall a very fun... More

Wonderful experience!! Musicians are increíble. They manage soul, blues as no one. I was with my husband and we spent an increíble time. The only thing we couldn't record the show just took pictures. Récord is forbbiden.

Great place to gather with friends, with live blues and great beer. Free acoustic concerts in the afternoon. Paid concerts in the evening/night.

The music is good and the sound system does a very nice job bringing the music to life. The drinks are good and the food is okay but the music is really good. Fun place.

Attended as an included event in a tour holiday and was looking forward to it as we had visited and thoroughly enjoyed Chicago Blue the previous night. The place is like a warehouse, no atmosphere whatsoever, smells of food and the staff more interested checking the stamp on your hand and preventing video than offering friendly service. Band was only... More

If you are around S Michigan ave, that´s the right place to go to grab a beer and listen to a good Blues song. Get there early so you can get a table. Food is also served. It is all about the music! Paid the $10 USD cover charge what was worth. I would recommend if you are around!

No question that this club has good music, The cajun food is reasonably priced. It was difficult to get seats on Saturday night. The cover charge was not bad. This was the most value for the money with the exception of a late afternoon visit to the Arts Institute.
