This is one of my favorite places to eat and grab a beer in Chicago. They have an amazing selection of craft brews. The décor is dimly lit with a nice ambience. The food is AMAZING! I wouldn't even call it bar food or a gastropub because it is straight up gourmet quality with a very affordable price tag.

Tried this on a Saturday night with our nephew. Great beer list (the menu print could be a little bigger or a bit more light) - all of us trying two different each. The food was great too - had mussles to start - first time the broth was beer based - very tasty! For mains - scallops, pork belly... More

What else can you ask for besides a completely unpretentious bib gourmand rated restaurant that is busy every day of the week. They have tons of beers and specialize in Belgians. I've never had anything but an exceptional time here and have been coming for years!

Came here with my pops for some hops. Nice clean area as soon as you enter. There is additional dining in back. We were a little confused at first because we didn't know you have to go up to the bar to order if you are sitting in the front area. The workers are very friendly and helpful. I ordered... More

Had the opportunity to try Hopleaf for a Sunday brunch. The food was good. I recommend the CB&J and the steamed muscles w/ fries. The fries and aioli were amazing. The beer selection was impressive. I tried several drinks off the beer menu and none disappointed.

I have been here once before, but had to order the same entree because I loved it so much. I highly recommend the CB&J-Cashew Butter, Fig Jam & toasted cheese sandwich. Yum!! Excellent beer selection too!

The appetizers, specifically the sausage plate and the potato-cheddar croquettes were both very good and have me wanting to come back for dinner. The beer selection is very large and made up of high quality choices. This is a local bar/restaurant that is easy to reach by using the "L" Red Line and getting off at the Berwyn stop.

Surprised that they didn't brew any of their own, but the broad array of tapped beer more than made up for that Food was excellent. Scallops, fried chicken and pork chops.

The food was great, the atmosphere is typical of a neighborhood tavern however the beer selection was disappointing. When I travel to other cities, I try to seek out neighborhood establishments, hence this restaurant. I was disappointed that the large beer list did not include more beer selections from some very good local breweries, that are within walking distance of... More
