Had brunch here today. Foods was abundant but not especially good. 3 of us had salmon omelets and one a stack of banana pancakes. The chocolate mini muffins and cream cheese are a nice touch in the breadbasket which comes out ahead of the food. I would go back but I would not rush back. Perhaps the bar is better... More

My friend and I stopped here for a quick bite before seeing a matinee at the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre. The bar part of this establishment is quite charming; it has a beautiful pressed-tin ceiling. We had a drink while waiting for the restaurant to open. They have a good selection of beers and premium liquors, although they are a bit... More

Come here to belt out some tunes on a Saturday night. It will be the best decision you've made in Chicago.

My sister selected the restaurant because she liked the location. We were staying in the Lincoln Park area and we headed for a Friday night dinner. The place was busy so we were happy to get a seat outside in the beautiful summer weather. I enjoyed the sangria and my sisters chose beer. We were all happy with our drinks.... More

A few blocks north of the Second City comedy club, this is a well-established neighborhood joint that, put simply, is better than your average locals pub-restaurant. Don't expect the usual wings/burgers/pizza and beer; Four Farthings' menu manages to be casually sophisticated -- as contradictory as that sounds -- with hints of Italy plus regional American (Cajun, New England, etc.), all...

Four Farthings used to be a pretty good place for a meal and a glass of wine and a beer, but anymore notsomuch. We visited on a Saturday night, when the restaurant was booming, and this may be part of the reason for the not so great meal. Service was friendly and although not as attentive as one would wish,...

If a "good" rating existed, better than average but not very good, that would be the rank I would chose for this establishment. The ambience, antique pub style, is very nice. The waiter was enthusiastic, knowledgeable about the menu, helpful and prompt. He is the primary reason why I opted for "very good" versus "average" rating . The food overall... More

Four Farthings is a great local Chicago restaurant. Get out of the hussle bussle of the loop and see Lincoln Park. You have your choice between bar food and more typical entrees of steak, pasta, seafood. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is warm and you'll be glad you made it there.

We were on our way to Park West to see Melody Gardot.... the area is LOADED with eateries but we stopped at Four Farthings because of the mouth watering garlic aroma hypnotizing us into the door. Actually we sat outside on perfect fall Midwest evening. The waiter was attentive and courteous, several were hailed by name by many a passing... More

Food was very good with large portions, I liked the booth we sat in so it was a little more private than a table. The people in the attached bar sounded like they were having fun with a trivia night.
