Top Wings, For Sure, With a Catch....

The wings are certainly delicious, two issues... 1) Wow, they are expensive. I suppose being in the more touristy area they think they can get away with the $11.99 (or $12.95?) price point? As a group, we collectively agreed that the wings were awesome, but the jump from regular bar wings to... read more

Went to Jake's on a Wednesday night, good crowd but got a table right away. Had wings and flatbread pizza, both were great! Flavor of wings were excellent and they were done perfectly. Not too pricey and a fun atmosphere. Just a couple blocks off Michigan Ave and very easy to get to. Will definitely be going back!!

Very busy in the middle of the week. The wings were fine, they promote them as the best in the city. Beer menu is impressive and unique and the food portions are large..we split a sandwich basket.

We stopped here on the way back to our hotel, so glad we did! I had the burger of the month (Frisco), it was DELICIOUS! We also had a collaboration beer that was really good too. The staff was friendly and fun to talk to about the area. We will return!

Great spot for a larger group who wants to be low-key and casual. Service was good and food was tasty. We were able to accommodate our group of 15 at a large table and we had a great time.

Very cheerful greeter led me to a table by the window. The pleasant server was quick to arrive at the table with food and drink menus. A fairly long wait after my order was take, a plate arrived with a large serving of French fries which dwarfed two very small pieces of fried fish hiding inside a much batter. The... More

My wife and I visited here twice in the 6 nights we were in Chicago. It was so good the first time. The staff are good, the venue atmosphere is really cool and the food choice is epic. We'd recommend the burgers. All are good. The fries are so damn good. The best surprise was a large cookie with ice... More

Came here for the wings and end up getting a frisco sandwich and to be honest it wasn't what I was looking for but it might have been even better. I like eggs on my burger but the avocado which I have never had with the thousand island type of sauce was a great combination and the wings which you... More
