We attended a concert at the United Center last night and went to the Park Tavern for dinner prior to the concert. The pub was large with lots of televisions tuned to sports with a large selection of beers on tap. Unfortunately they were out of a lot of the beers on the menu. I'm not sure if it was... More

This place is very busy and very loud. They do have outdoor seating. You should really make a reservation because we had to wait 40 minutes on a Wednesday night. The mac and cheese is really good. The portions are very large. The animals tots are a Chicago must have.

If you are going to a United Center event, eg. Blackhawks, concert etc. You can walk which is about 3 blocks or Park has a free shuttle service back and forth. As far as the food goes... I ordered a plate of fried calamari for the table which was very greasy and when I asked for some cocktail sauce, the... More

You will want to reserve a table if you plan on eating there before a UC event, otherwise hope you can squeeze into the bar. The tavern has a nice bar, but there was only one bartender to service the big bar area which was slammed on a Thursday night after work and before a UC show. The food was... More

Stopped here before a Hawks game and was pleasantly surpised. Free park yourself parking in ample sized lot. Reservations accepted. Plenty of TV's to catch game action. Best of all the food was excellent- a notch above standard bar fare. Even their house wines were decent. The shuttle could not have worked better for us. Thankfully with temps in single... More

I've been going to Park Tavern a ton since they opened about a year ago. Food is very good, smoked chicken sandwich is incredible. Pizzas are good as well. Lunch specials half-priced sandwiches on Wednesdays can't be beat. Good drink specials in evening, $4 craft beers on Monday. Free shuttle to United Center events. Highly recommend this place

The Park Tavern is a great stop, close to the United Center to grab dinner and drinks before a game or event at the Center. The bar is quite big and has two bars downstairs with ample seating and an upstairs lounge with bottle service only. The tavern does accept reservations and it is a great idea if you plan... More

We had lunch here between morning and afternoon games during the Big Ten Tournament. The relative isolation of the United Center means there aren't many options of places you can get to/from in the two hour break between sessions but the Park Tavern was perfect for this. Huge beer on tap selection and sandwiches that I liked. Two beers I... More

Food is very average unless you stick to appetizers and drinks. Nothing special although a LOT of TV's with all sports.
