Went here on a Tuesday night to watch the 2014 MLB All-Star game. It was packed - literally not a seat in the house, but the atmosphere was great! The look from the outside is a little deceiving, having to go down a flight of stairs into a basement, but once you enter, you feel very comfortable. There are lots... More

The pub is on lower level of a building, so it's dark and dingy inside. But the food is tastier than a normal bar food. Salad, burgers are delicious.

The restaurant was near our hotel so we gave it a shot. Food was good. First beer was flat but not sure that was their fault. Plenty of beer and food choices. Service was decent. Would go there again.

My family and I just flew into Chicago and need a place to go for a quick meal. We went around 12 and it was wasn't too busy at all, but quickly filled up around 12:30. Our server was very friendly and knew their menu well. The food was very good! We got burgers which were fantastic, perfectly cooked, and... More

We ate here twice, easy walking distance from hotel and good solid foods. The kids found it easy to find foods they like and there were good choices for adults. The prices were reasonable for a city restaurant and it was clean and not too loud. The service was friendly and helpful.

We stopped here, for a round of three drinks and to mingle with the locals. My boyfriend had Kentucky bourbon ale on draft, I had the thunder punch we shared a artichoke and spinach dip. It was really tasty. What I loved about my drink was that it was strong but yet fruity. They do have a nice menu. I... More

Came here for the USAvBEL match in the world cup. It was a great atmosphere. I cant even imagine how busy they must have been but the server was always present and very attentive. The food was pretty good too. I only ate typical bar food like Nachos and the Wings but they were both pretty good. Would recommend to... More
