The food was good solid pub food. They had a good selection of locally brewed beer. Also (unlike some sports pubs) it was an excellent place for children.

We had the best time on Sunday watching the U.S. Soccer Team. The bar was hopping but that did not effect the service at the bar. The bartenders we great and the most friendliest. The t.v.s we're plentiful and perfect to watch any game. Our only complaint was when we arrived(2hours before the game started), the hostess tried to seat... More

Often times when you are in downtown Chicago and you are looking for a good place to grab a normal sandwich and a beer, you are out of luck. Places can be over priced or have semi-exotic menus. Great at times maybe, but not a good place to watch a game and have a beer. No so with Mother Hubbard's!... More

Of course any sports bar shows their love for sports, but this one shows particular LOVE for their Chicago teams. With too many TV's to count and fans in every inch of the bar this is the perfect game watching atmosphere! The food was ok, and the price tag was fair. Our only complaint would be the waitress who had... More

If I'm in the mood to go to a bar that doesn't have the price tag and stuffyness that most River North bars offer, Mother Hubbard's is the way to go. I'll often go to Rossi's as well, but if you want a little bit more space and variety, Mother Hubbard is what you want. Sometimes it's hard to get... More

Very laid back and fun atmosphere. My friend had the cheese enchiladas and they gave her terrible indigestion. I'd go back.

A good sports bar/restaurant just west of Michigan Ave and north of the Chicago River. The food is good (hamburgers, chicken, mexican) and has a friendly staff. Good prices for downtown Chicago with lots of Televisions with many sports options.I always feel comfortable and relaxed when I'm able to get there although those with younger children will probably want to...

My wife and I were looking for a place to watch the Brewers in downtown Chicago. Stopped in to Mother Hubbard's and staff quickly put the Brewers on a TV close to where we were seated. Plenty of other TVs for fans of all teams to watch other games/sports while we watched the Crew and ate nachos. Nachos ok. Waitstaff... More

We visited Mother Hubbard's on recommendation from our hotel concierge for a good sports bar. Watched the Blackhawks game. Great atmosphere, awesome service, clean bathroom. Food was good, try the wings!

A very comfortable place to have a 'shot and a beer' and watch your favorite sports teams. Last night I saw Wisconsin advance to the 'Final Four' in OT. Go 'Big Red'! The service is very good, the food is very good and the atmosphere is relaxed and very comfortable. I Shall Return!
