We just got the wings but they were so delicious we ordered seconds! Get the firecracker wings if you go! They are sweet,tangy and have just a little kick. The server was attentive and there was a good atmosphere. Wish we tried other things from the menu but we were so stuck on the wings. Its a great little pub... More

Great place to watch Sunday afternoon football, especially if the Bears are playing. Get there early it fills up fast. The bloody marys are awesome, lots of good finger food, and reasonable prices.

We rented private space at Jake Melnicks along with catered dinner. We picked a winner here! The staff was fantastic. The Bartender was very accommodating and helpful. The food, absolutely fantastic. We were a little skeptical going into a barbecue place in Chicago, but this place turned out to be a hit among even our pickiest food critics. I hope... More

We came across this place while my daughter and I were visiting Chicago. We ate outside and had the best service I've ever had. Beer menu was full of great choices with descriptions. I had a steak salad which was delicious while my daughter enjoyed some Mac and Cheese. I'd definitely come back the next time I visit the city.

Our party of eight arrived Chicago from Dallas later in the evening. Most of us were looking for a good burger or salad and some just a lovely place for a drink. We came upon Jake's and were so glad we had. The burgers were juicy and generously sized. My steak salad was amazing...perfect medium rare, tender and the blue... More

My partner and I were looking for a place to grab to bite when we came across Jake Melnicks, what caught our eye was the street tables on the side of the building which was an ideal place to sit on a pleasant summer evening. The place was very busy at it was the first game in the Stanley Cup... More

Tried this restaurant as they claimed to have great grilled chicken wings. For a Tuesday night, this restaurant was busy and noisy. It's more of a "sports bar" rather than a typical restaurant. As I was by myself I easily found a place on the "communal" table. My wait person was friendly and efficient. Food and beverage was quick. I... More

This place is filled with young people having a good time, by shouting at one another to be heard. Lots of televisions blast lots of sound in every direction. And even though almost no one seems to be paying attention to them, they seem to be on anyway. I found the waitress knowledge, and they did handle my order with... More

This is a very nice venue. We didn't have time to eat before jumping on a train home, but we did have a nice cold beer and enjoyed the atmosphere. The food looked delicious and the waitstaff was great! We would come back.
