This nice little hideaway was a great place for a delicious lunch. Full menu and lots of options make this a great place for everyone even down to the picky eater. Loved it, and my sliced beef was excellent. Thanks X-checker.

I loved this place so much I ate there 3 times in my 10 days in Chicago. It is not only laid back, but the prices are great, and the food was fabulous. Go on a Thursday for the spinach pie special. I want one now. Great beer selection too!!

After many excellent experiences at the restaurant with pizza, salads and sandwiches, I tried the tenderloin kabobs. They were tough as leather. Inedible.

My wife and I visited after long walking in Chicago and we were quite hungry. The sallad included in the main course was crisp and the dressing rich and creamy (which probably mean high fat...). I ordered lamb chops for the main course. Cooked to order, tender and tasty. My wife had cajun chicken pasta, the only complaint there was... More

This sports bar has multiple tv screen and a wide selection of food available. It also is able to take large groups and seat them comfortably. It is not as noisy as some of the other local bars and will suit the more discerning customer.

We loved this noisy, hopping restaurant and actually ate there two nights in a row. Several TV screens for sporting events if you're interested, but close-captioned so not distracting. Lots of menu choices - try the lamb chops (3) which were perfectly prepared and surprisingly inexpensive. An easy walk to several S. Michigan Ave. hotels.

Huge menu, affordable, relaxed pub atmosphere. Chicago style pizza, chicken wings, onion rings, and ribs all are served with their unique spin.

In town for a couple of days, attended a baseball game the evening before, then decided to just explore the city and stop somewhere for burgers. couldn't convince the husband to try the deep dish pizza, but we were thrilled with the burgers, fries and slaw. Fresh, cooked perfectly, so juicy that you need a pile of napkins! We both... More

I was so excited to visit this restaurant and have a truly "Chicagoan" style meal ....... Then ........ enter the waitress from hell. She messed up my order, then tried to compensate it by saying .... "well isn't that food kinda good?" She would not rectify the mistake ... It was so upsetting .... I will never return, nor recommend... More

Great food and great atmosphere. Really loved the gangster theme. The ribs and the deep dish pizza were really awesome and I would recommend this place.
