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

Came here for drinks and dinner. We ordered the baby back ribs and spicy wings combo. This dish also came with awesome French fries. The drinks are a bit expensive but this is downtown chicago. The service from our waitress was really good. The ambience is cosy and had a mix of people from all age groups. Definitely worth visiting.... More

The pizza was excellent (according to my friends). Fun atmosphere. I got the ham and provolone on the pretzel roll. It was OK. Lots of good beer to choose from!

On a brief business trip to Chicago I chose this place for a quick dinner and a drink. The staff were busy, but it was welcoming - none of the rolled eyes you sometimes get when you ask for a table for one. The server was friendly, helpful and prompt. The menu is extensive - Chicago classics including burgers, ribs... More
