Dislikes - None Likes - The food quality was excellent and the prices were reasonable. It is right downtown and was convenient to our hotel. Two of us had the ribs and the other two ordered pizza. All were delicious. The service was extremely good. Our waitress was friendly and efficient.

We visited this pub as it was close to our hotel. While the food was good, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. Service was efficient and friendly.

We choose Exchequer because it was a stone's throw away from our hotel. Excellent Deep Dish Pizza! Our first visit was for the lunch the day before the Marathon. We were "carbo loading" and ended up having the Appetizer Trio as a starter, since a deep dish takes roughly 30 minutes to cook. The serve ring was plentiful!....so much so... More

Huge space, great diner-like service. We met people from several countries having a great time. Above average to excellent bar food. Large pour beers. Extraordinary Chicago-style pizza pies. Atmosphere is decent and somewhat upscale. Good value for the prices. Large menu. A true find that proves you don't need to break the bank in Chicago with untrustworthy places.

Our first evening in Chicago meant a later dinner than usual for us. We chose to stay close to our hotel, until we got the lay of the land. The Exchequer was on the next block and we had heard great things about it. They were pretty full when we arrived, but we still managed to get a table. It... More

I ate here on two consecutive nights, something I usually don't do in a large city. I sat at the bar and enjoyed a great selection of beers on draft and had pizza (thin) the first night and bourbon-glazed salmon the second. Both were out of this world good. Great local place with a lot of history.

We both had the buffalo chicken sandwich with waffle fries, they were very good! This place has a great atmosphere and the food didn't take too long to arrive. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. We would return here if ever in Chicago again.

As I stated in another review, I like searching out spots that are noted for having a good Chicago deep dish pizza. While not the best pie I have had, it is still very good andwith a better price than most. It is also a nice place to just get off your feet, take a breather and enjoy a cold... More
