We just stumbled on this place after spending the day at Navy Pier. We had out of town family and just wanted a beer and chips before heading home. We stayed for appetizers, dinner and dessert. What a blast! Our server Adam was hilarious and made our visit extra enjoyable! The food, drink choices and prices were off the chain!... More

Went with the family for lunch... Conveniently located just off the Magnificent Mile but unless you're looking for it you'll never find it. Excellent BBQ, great service and perfect atmosphere... Had the three way pork sliders, but if I had to do it over is just get the Carolina style pork Sammy. Family had a burger and the Mac and... More

I went to Jake's for some beers and lunch. The bartender was a doll and helped me choose, answered all my questions about the menu. Get the Prohibition burger!! It has their amazing pulled pork on it, it is HUGE. But here's what really blew me away.. the burger didn't fall apart when I ate it, even though it's so... More

BBQ & wings were great. Service was good. Casual atmosphere. $70 for lunch for 2 without alcohol was a bit high but portions were good.

I ate here on Tuesday 12/27 in the evening. I was visiting Chicago and this place was recommended by the hotel concierge to satisfy the hot wings craving of the two teenagers with me. My first error was not realizing that it was a night that a hockey game was on. This resulted in a packed restaurant with a 30... More

About my fourth visit here. Always good food, big portions, great service, tasty beer. Had the wings before, delicious but be warned, medium here is hot anywhere else. Buffalo chicken sandwich is very tasty, especially paired with sweet potatoe fries! I'll be back ;)

During a recent trip to Chicago, my family, 14 of us had dinner at Jake Melnick's. It was the first time any of us had been there and we were not disappointed. The service, beer selection and food were amazing. We made reservations a few days ahead of time since we had a larger party and we changed the time... More

Had such a great experience here twice in one week. They have a very eclectic selection of ciders. Great place to watch sports. The staff were very attentive even on a busy game day. Will definitely return there when I'm in Chicago again and recommend to anyone going there.

This place is always good -- opens at 11am on the weekends during football season -- and is like being in a cozy log cabin. The staff is terrific, always friendly and never rushing you. Lot's of TV's to watch sports -- a decent Bloody Mary, as well as a variety of other concoctions -- and coffee. I like the... More
