This used to be a great place- so much fun! We went and were the only ones in the bar! Four others came in later and then the bartender left to cook food for them so no one was left tending the bar! Not acceptable!

OMG - How could new ownership screw things up any worse! They closed the resturant and kitchen, removed original normal bar stools and tables and replaced them with kindergarten sized furniture (literally)! Regulars are gone. Drink selection no longer exists. This used to be a...More

My husband and I stopped in here before heading to dinner across the street at Gemini Bistro. It's a cute little bar. Not much to it, great for drinks with friends!

The food is fine but I think they should get a different menu and make the quality better for the prices. Atmosphere is cool. Bar staff is pleasant. Invest $!

As a University of Illinois graduate, I have to admit begrudgingly that Michigan boosters have good taste in at least one area: They have chosen the Four Farthings Tavern & Grill at 2060 North Cleveland Avenue in the heart of Lincoln Park as their gathering...More

We had brunch at Four Farthings and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The food and drinks were excellent and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere was quite relaxing for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Highly recommended.

Located on a corner in the heart of Lincoln Park, Four Farthings Tavern and Grill has welcomed patrons to fill pints and plates for half a century. Though the tavern was originally a quaint space with a ceiling only reaching nine feet, it has grown through the decades. Today, it is an up scale resturant where customers can uncover something different every day-a sidewalk brunch on Sundays, Trivia on Wednesdays and karaoke on Thursdays and Saturdays, and live music on Friday. The bar keeps their signature wings on special and televisions abuzz with sports on the weekends- catching all the action of College Sports (BIG 10 Conference & Michigan Booster Bar) & NFL football on the weekends. Plasters of photos of old Chicago across walls paneled in centuries-old wood (which was imported from Wisconsin's Kimberly Clark mansion and milled onsite for a custom fit). The Grill Room was added in 1983 and features fresh steaks and seafood along with pastas and daily specials. The bar side offers lighter fare and outdoor seating at our beautiful patio! The bar and party room are popular spots to view sporting events or meet friends to relax. We are excited to continue the proud history of Four Farthings and put our own touches on an old favorite!
