We stopped in before a concert and enjoyed cocktails and pizza. The pizza is amazing with tons of options. The martinis are wonderful and strong! Unique drink options. A cool pub in downtown Chicago

I dropped in to avoid a massive storm and ended up staying for dinner. The ribs were fantastic, the staff & atmosphere were friendly. I would definitely visit again.

I was staying at The Palmer House and the concierge recommended this pub over Miller's. I dined there twice and was happy each time. Excellent service and the Greek chicken and potatoes was very good. I'm Greek and have high standards too! The next day I tried the pizza and it was very good.

In Chicago on vacation. Eating a Deep Dish Pizza was on my list. Two of us shared a small deluxe, it was delicious and more than we eat. We also shared a small Greek salad it was the best I had ever tasted. The service was good and the staff friendly.

I had lunch here with my son. The menu offers many choices.My son had a burger and fries and I had the meatloaf special. Both were very good and portions were quite large.

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
