“real American: comfort food in a hurry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We enjoyed dinner in this pub on Martini Monday: $5 per drink. Irresistable. I had a martini with whipped cream on top (smoretini), which was a new culinary experience for me. If you order an entree after 5pm, you can get a soup or salad for only $1,95. The basil soup was loaded with vegetables, spicy, and a real treat. We hadn't even finished the soup, when the entrees were served.The meatloaf my wife had was very good, but the green beans were a bit too cold. My tuna steak was tender and nicely seasoned, but prepared too hastily: the inside was too cold. Some time out of the fridge before cooking would have improved the overall quality. And before the clock had struck another time, we were on our way back to the hotel.

“Best comfort food, great cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is a must for anyone craving comfort food. Their stuffed turkey sandwich: toasted bread with sliced turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce is THE BEST! Get it with the mashed potatoes. You won't be sorry. Sloppy Joes, pot pie and pork chops are also awesome. As for drinks, LOVED the Purple Rain. I can't tell you now what was in it...but ordered a second. Very tasty. Service rocked! We've been there on three separate occasions and felt like we were at home.

I loved this place. The beer, food and service where some of the best i had on this trip. And it was the most inexpensive over all.

“Comfort Food almost as good as Mom's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Located in Bucktown, this small corner pub is a great place to stop for a good home cook meal. The menu is simple with pot pies, sloppy joes, and macaroni and cheese. The sloppy joes are meaty with a tangy flavor. With a side order of macaroni an cheese it is a very filling lunch. Good selection of beers too. But be careful, you might accidentally order a special very expensive Goose Island Brew if you do not look at the price. A very helpful waitress pointed it out to me before I ordered the $40 brew. There is also outside seating.
