Great place to meet friends for dinner. Pub style- great atmosphere, good beer selection, and several options for meals and starters. Our waitress was super friendly! I had a thin and crusty pizza and it was fantastic. I tried some of the pasta and the meat sauce was rather bland, with no cheese. Just pasta, sauce with some meat, but... More

Visited for dinner with colleagues and we decided to try the deep dish pizza - yeah, we are from out of town. It was very good, very filling.... wish I had order some veggies!

This bar had a nice feel to it. The bar area was up front and small which gave it a cosy environment. As you get past that, it opens up into a big dining room. The highlight was the steak Sandwich with grilled onions and blue cheese. Extremely tasty.

Interesting place. Not fancy but made great drinks and pizza was very good. Cheesy. Also good selection of draft beer. Has some history.

I eat here every time I am in Chicago. Every dish I've tried is delicious, my favorites are the deep dish pizza, goat cheese marinara, and lemon drop martini's. The menu is broad range and they offer a full bar. Give it a try!

Great pizza - I am very particular (I make my own deep dish at home) but when I am out, this is the place. Fun pub atmosphere, and friendly service. But be aware that they can't always do pizza on Saturdays (because of the depth, they take about 30 minutes in the oven) so call head to be sure they... More

We came on a busy Friday night in December, so the service was a tad slower than preferred; however, the food wasn't delayed and it was INCREDIBLE! We were so tired after walking around the city, but we were glad that we found this pub that Big Al used to dine at. The feel was cozy and the staff was... More

I love the Exchequer! Their deep dish pizza is the best I've had. The crust is perfect and their toppings never disappoint. This local, storied establishment is a must visit - sit in their intimate dining room or grab it to go - either way, do yourself a favor and try it!

American old style bar restaurant in the center of Chicago with a choice of hamburgers, (deep) pizza's and stakes. We spent a week in this neighborhood and ate here several times because we really loved this place. The ambiance is very cosy, decorated with lots of wood. The place was always crowded but we didn't need to make reservations. Most... More

We came for lunch. Our food - hamburger and Buffalo chicken sandwich were great and everything that passed by our table looked delicious. However, you absolutely must try the onion rings. We saw them on the menu and thought about ordering them; then we saw some being brought to another table and knew we had to try some. They did... More
