Excellent pub in great location

My wife and I dined here late (around 10:30pm) after a concert at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Great place. Location is excellent, close to all possible shops and right behind the CSO; the place (on a late saturday night) was quiet and the venue itself is really nice. The food - we both had a... read more

Have had lunch here twice. Each time the service has been perfect. The food has been very good and fresh. Seems to have some interesting history.

I was here about five years ago and just revisited. Amazing deep dish pizza! My favorite in Chicago by far. Love the pub atmosphere, easily accessible by train or bus. Great drink selection too. Highly recommend.

The place has a great atmosphere, nice and cozy and not too loud. You can enjoy a Blackhawks or White Sox game or get a group together and have pizza and beer. The front bar is nice for a date, but in the back they have larger areas for large impromptu gatherings. I really like their thin crust pizza and... More

The burgers and pizza are great. Call in advance to get the pizza started before you arrive. They take about 45 minutes to prepare.

We tried the deep dish pizza and a pasta dish. Both were excellent! The restaurant has a fun atmosphere with pictures of mob figures and prohibition era events on the walls. We ate in the bar area which was fun - everyone seemed to be having a good time. There's also a large dining area. The wait staff was very... More

The pizza was awesome! Of course, being in Chicago, had to try the deep dish. And there were plenty of choices for beer and wine. Lots of character in this place, And service is tops. This place never fails to disappoint.

Our office celebrated the holidays with a pizza party at Exchequer, and it was set up in the cozy Fireside Room, with a beer/wine bar and a pizza and salad buffet. There were about 25 people in our group, and they set up one long table for us. The service was great and so was the pizza, both thin crust... More
