The waiters and waitress's take a 101 course in beer so they can help match your taste to the wide variety they have. Food was also very good and reasonably priced.

Visited Chicago from Dec 30th 14- Jan 3rd 15. I came to this place 4 years ago and they haven't skipped a beat. Seems like they have even gotten better. Nice vibe, good food and drinks. My wife and I went here to relax everyday that we were in town.

We stopped in for a drink, came back for a late supper. Hostess, bartenders, waiters friendly! Amazing wings, HOT, big, meaty, cooked perfectly. Fries are home made and delicious. Lots of beer choices. Good place! Recommend.

This place is great to go to with friends and try new beers- they have tons on tap and even more bottles available (local, international, IPA, you name it). They've always got sports games on and it's a relaxed atmosphere. I like coming here with friends for beer and appetizers but they've also got a full menu of food and... More

Each time we visit Chicago, we visit Jake's. It's always busy and has a good, friendly vibe. My husband loves the beer selection and it was just a fun place to go to watch football/hockey on a Monday night. This was our first time ordering food and the portions were huge but it was very good. You sometimes have to... More

I stopped by here to watch a game. There are a lot of beers on tap. Both domestic, international, and lots of IPA's. I sat at the bar and had great service from Erin and April. Great local watering hole.

Overall it was really good. Good atmosphere. Lots of TVS. Good food and an above average craft beer selection - especially for a sports bar. I had the pulled pork slider trio - they were pretty good, keeping in mind it's a sports bar and not a BBQ joint. And the fried pickles were good too

There is a reason these were voted the best wings in Chicago, because THEY ARE!! Not only the variety, but the uniqueness of the wing flavors is phenomenal. We suggest the pb&j wings, as they are our all time favorite. You also can't beat the great service as the waiter will be your friend before you leave. This is a... More
