Every December when we go to Chicago, we visit here at least once. They have many beer selections and the menu has many options. We love the Irish/Celtic coffees for desert. Love this place for atmosphere and Service.

We didn't wait for a seat. The burger was great. Awesome beer selection. The service was killer. The TRUFFLE FRIES were delicious as were the garlic parm fries. I can't say enough good things. Yeah, a little pricier than a Fridays for a burger and fries but the quality is worth it.

Went on saturday afternoon plenty of craft beer choices but we went with the $4 22ounce colors light special to save a little cash. Lots of tvs to watch all the games and service was terrific. Had nachos and they were fine but nothing special. The place was always crowded so if you want to go and eat get reservation... More

Excellent service from the wait staff. Nice to see that there are still those that take their jobs seriously while still having fun and enjoying what they do. Wonderful selection of beers, if you enjoy darker, full bodied beers and have the opportunity to try the "Night Stalker", do so - you won't regret it.

Great sports bar in Chicago near Michigan Avenue. Pool tables, extensive beer list, good "cheese and fries with everything" style menu, TV screens everywhere and good music. Waitresses easy on the eye too. Recommended.

Average food....had a burger and pulled pork sandwich. Average service, not awesome but not terrible. Overall noise level, particularly the sound system from the restaurant was so loud it was hard to have a conversation.......was at Jake Melnicks the day before.....would probably go there next time......

I went with some friends to try this sports bar. We went in between games to just hang out & catch a few beers before our next destination. Overall I enjoyed the atmosphere & selection of beer. We got an appetizer of dips & it was good. The only issue we had was it seemed that our waiter up charged... More
