Pub/sports bar type place with plenty of seating and a welcoming atmosphere. We ate here twice so it must have been good. The first night I had a chicken salad which came with Gorgonzola, nuts and apple and was really tasty - I can recommend the raspberry vinegrette. Second night my husband built his own burger with Chedder cheese, bacon,... More

Great atmosphere. Deep Dish pizza and Alfredo pasta were amazing. Also the goat cheese marinara was yummy!! Our waitress was very pleasant and funny.

Stopped by for a late night eat. I forget how blunt people are in the Midwest. Bartender did serve me, but I would not rave about it. My mixed drink was flat. Did not order another one. The fish and chips were very good. Atmosphere was good. My order was delivered in reasonable time.

This is a pub-style eatery, with several televisions in place. I went for dinner on a weeknight, and it was very busy, and quite loud because of the crowd. I ordered the half rack of ribs, and was taken aback by the huge size (to me it looked like a whole rack). Anyway, it was so tasty I ate it... More

Ate at this restaurant about a week ago. It is in the loop, within walking distance of many hotels and about 3 blocks south of Macy's on Wabash. It is more locals than tourist and it was extremely busy the night we were there. Seating was very tight due to a large party. Very loud when busy so if you... More

This is kind of a bar/restaurant/locals hangout/pizza place that has a few big screens for games. It seems they are trying to be all things to everyone, which seldom works out, but seems to here. When I'm in Chicago I usually like to try a new pizza place and this one was advertised as, "Rated #1 by the Chicago Tribune"... More

My husband and I popped into the Exchequer for a quick lunch right before Christmas. We had never been here before and selected it because it was just steps from the Palmer House Hilton. We were really hungry and ordered a small all meats pizza. (at the servers recommendation) We thought if we were still hungry afterward we could do... More

We stumbled upon this place after first getting into Chicago and wanting a bite before heading out to shop in the Loop. It was a great pub experience. We had a made to order deep dish pizza, burger, salad and soup. The portions were huge and we could have made do with just the pizza. Overall, highly recommend.

My wife and I ate here twice in the course of 4 days. They have the best wings and pizza you will eat. It's a local pub with a great atmosphere. If you don't visit this place while in Chicago you are making a mistake.

This was by far the best hamburger we've eaten! Everyone in our group totally enjoyed this wonderful lunch! This restaurant is known for their pan pizza, and we will definitely return here to try that too! Our 6-year old granddaughter had a thin-crust pizza and loved it! Very generous portions of food and reasonably priced!!! I would put this restaurant... More
