Good sports bar hangout

Stopped here with some guy friends for a few drinks. It's a typical sports bar, tvs everywhere and pub tables. It was nothing special, a good place for a casual hangout. It was a lot of guys there, as a woman I did feel a little out of place, but overall a good experience.

We had dinner here prior to attending the 11 pm show at Second City..only a half block from the theater. The Owner/ Manger Ky was an outstanding host and our server Jimmy was super. The food was outstanding, Ky shared a sample of his Ribs straight out of the oven and were they great. we had a Rib dinner and... More

Have ordered from Fireplace Inn on several occasions and I have to say , honestly that the food is better all the time, not that it was less the first time. Our dinner came on time, hot, package wonderfully and simple delicious. The Greek pork chops were out of this world as was the steak and crab cakes . Hungry,... More

My daughter was in town for a few hours and we decided to visit the restaurant. For starters we had the calamri which was very good. I couldn't decide on a burger or ribs so I decided ribs. Not the best I've had, closer to the bottom of the list really. I've had some great ribs on the south side... More

We ordered the baby back ribs, excellent. The waiter was a eldery guy with excellent service. We were going to Second City, and he told us a lot of stories in between the serving. Loved it.

Boy lemme tell you...these burgers are amazing! I had the BBQ burger and I seriously fell in love. I'm a die-hard BBQlover so I expect alot and this place delivered. I'm not sure whose idea it was to put pulled pork, bacon and a burger patty together, but thank you. My girlfriend had the peppered egg & bacon burger which... More

We ate at this establishment on recommendation from the Second City Comedy club. Food was very good; moderately priced. I would call this a bar, not a restaurant. Tables are very close and it is VERY noisy (in fairness, it is March madness) so noisy that you couldn't hope to carry on a conversation. Although it wasn't the experience we... More

We come here a lot but Alex has made it the most memorable time for us yet. His professional manner and warmth is exemplary and he deserves the heftiest raise in the restaurant industry. Go here and ask for Alex!

My wife and I went to this place because some people we know raved about if. I expected the place to be a restaurant not a bar. It was more like a sports bar, loud and most of the screens were showing UFC crap (not everyone likes this). Our server could barely speak English and misunderstood my drink order. Additionally...

Had a really fantastic meal here in April. The ribs were really superb and great quantities as well. Even though the place was really quite busy, we got a table without a reservation and the service was very efficient. Would certainly recommend to others.
