Excellent South Loop option for bar food

We live in the South Loop and frequent Hackney's often, which is one of the best places to eat in the neighborhood. Friendly service, reliably good food, good beer selection. A pub atmosphere with good outdoor seating in the summer. Menu is standard American fare, with especially good burgers... read more

This is the first amazing menu I've seen that wasn't over loaded with junk, but that literally kept me from being able to narrow my selection down to one dish without consulting with my girlfriend. They have a drink menu that will make you thirsty too.

They said they had the worlds best mac and cheese and onion blossoms. Nope, no, no. I was pretty disappointed with the food I ordered and definitely wouldn't be going back. I don't eat hamburgers, but I've heard those are good. The wait staff is nice so I did appreciate that. The place does get crowded sometimes so call ahead... More

Had dinner here before the Manchester United game at Soldier Field. They were understandably busy, but the service was really slow. Our waiter hardly ever checked on us and wasn't the one who brought our food out. We shared the hummus appetizer, which I found to be pretty bland--I prefer at least a hint of garlic in it. We then... More

We went here based on Triple D's TV show and a friends review. We had the cheese curds which were amazing. I also had the Hackney burger and it was delicious. This is a must eat place!

Our family of five stopped at Hackneys Pub in the south loop area for lunch. The menu was large yet unique. The stuffed burger (bacon and cheese) was good as were the fries both generous portions. My 13, 19 and 21 year old loved the "famous" onion rings. Many beer specials were available featuring local breweries. The Santa Fe Chicken... More

The beer battered cheese curds were amazing, but they were out of half of the beer on their menu. We ordered burgers and they came overdone and pretty bland. I would have rather made a hamburger at home than paid to eat theirs; almost as if they added zero seasoning to anything, and they way overcooked the egg for my... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
