We were attracted by the nice seating possibilities outside on the street, so we stopped by for dinner. The noodles with chicken were a huge portion, but tasted not really special. The ribs were quite good. Good selection of wine and beer. Service pushed to pay when we finished. Good athmospere, good food at reasonable prices.

The service was terrible. How do you hire someone who hates seafood and over 1/3 of your menu is seafood? He forgot things, he disappeared from time to time, it just made the entire meal a downer. The food was good but most likely would have been better if the service was better. The only thing that made me happy... More

We ate outside on a great Chicago evening. The lake superior fish and lamb chops were good, with very good side dish. However, the service was terrible. I have been at busier places and had 1000% better service. Dessert of mango cheesecake and cinnamon ice cream were good but not very exciting. Great locate, but food needs upgrade. And fire... More

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
