Stop before the game

The staff was friendly even though they had a tough night before (the Blackhawks won the Stanley cup). Food and drinks were good

Before a Cubs game this is the place to get amped up. Met lots of folks from other states and places. Had a great time sharing stories and getting ready for our Cubbies to beat up on the Padres. Bartenders were paying attention to get patrons served quickly with a packed bar. Bouncers carded EVERYONE, so that was fun for... More

Yes, it was new years eve, you'd think that things would be okay at least, my mistake. I had their "World Famous Garlic Fries" gosh i hope that there famous for being inedible, as they are obviously coated in potato starch and just served cold, with old spices, and limp and really not worth the price. We also tried the... More

Shaggy was awesome last night. Venue was not so great due to employees and the lack of concern for patrons. I live in FL the doors were suppose to open at 8:00PM. They did not let us in until 8:15 which would be fine in other states like FL. It was 18 degrees outside. Then after we got in I... More

Even though I am a SOX fan. Some buddies and myself after a cross town classic battle and sadly the cubbies beatings sox. We decided to go there to enjoy the spoils of war. Lol. They served great drinks and the atmosphere was nice, friendly service. Will try it out again sometime.

Admittedly my expectations weren't too high for the food here and I wasn't disappointed. The food is straight up nasty. Eat before you get there. Great place for a beer or two before the Cubs game but avoid the food!

great place to go before or after a cubs game or concert at Wrigley Field. On game days there is usually a dj and dancing and food on the next level. Its always packed. On non game days, there are tables to sit and watch other games (tons of tvs) and to eat. The food has always been really good... More

We went before a Cubs game..and this place was CROWDED! The waitstaff was very quick and attentive. We ordered wings, they came out cold--but our waitress got us hot fresh ones (what do you expect when it's crazy busy!) This bar is a must see, even if its just for one drink!

Walked in wide open area with no decor. Like it is a big dance floor. Then we found the stairs to the bathroom or restaurant area so we went up there. The rude bouncer said that you cant stand there and there were open tables so we looked for an open table so we went back and told him that... More

So I'm surprised there are so few review here at TA for this place. I'm guessing because the patrons are not the "upscale type" that visit this site. Anyway, it's not a bad place. The food is good and the service average. Great "pre game" atmosphere. The place is almost always packed before a game at wrigley which is right... More

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighborhood Profile
Wrigleyville
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
