Watched the superbowl here

Lots (and lots) of TV screens so wherever you sit you have a good view. Staff friendly and attentive, checking on drinks and food - which came really fast considering place was packed (we had pre-booked). Fun night was had - good sports bar with very reasonably priced food - and free Wi-Fi.

Great pub grub...only had the wings, but they were done right...saw many other dishes served to other patrons and they all looked scrumptious!!!

If you love having overcooked wings, undercooked fries, and no water refills for your party during a 40 minute visit, I highly encourage you to bypass the freezer section of your local supermarket and let Mother Hubbard's take care of you instead. If you love playing musical chairs with water and being a glass short of having one for everyone... More

We couldn't find anyplace else in our neighborhood that was serving food after the opera, so we wound up here. The kitchen's open until something like 3am. Comfy neighborhood place, lots of sports on TV. I had nachos, my date had grilled cheese and chili. The waitress was happy to make substitutions and changes, service was good. We were threatened...

This is a hole in the wall bar with a beer menu consisting of mostly domestic drafts though they do have a craft selection...it was weak. The beer prices are good for downtown Chicago...which is what earned them 3 stars. Otherwise, their food menu is mostly fried and unhealthy. The menu had their "famous" Campbells Tomato Soup with a grill... More

If you're a tourist in Chicago and you want to hang out in a bar that's like one from your hometown, this is the place. Simple, authentic, friendly staff, good drink prices, solid food. I came here 3 times on a trip to Chicago 6 years ago, stopped back in the next summer when I was in town with a... More

We were visiting the city for the weekend and didn't think aout making a reservation for dinner so we ended up at Mother Hubbards. On a Friday night, we were greeted by two large bouncers at the door. We went in and looked around and all tables looked full, so we turned around to leave and one of the big... More

This sports bar is perfect for any sports fan, any time of day. Upon arrival, staff asks which game you want to see so they can seat you near the correct TV. Variety of food and drink, "build your own grilled cheese" option, fun atmosphere, excellent location. Open late. Service was on the slower side.

We went here for dinner when the Bears were playing on Thursday night just to see what a Chicago Sports Pub would be like then. Before the game started on the 20+ TVs, the music was really loud (for our taste). It took a little while to be recognized by a waitress, but after that the service was about average... More
