Good Sports Bar

Great place to watch sports. Lots of television sets. They will change to game you are interested in. Food is average bar food. Pool table in back room if you are so inclined to play.

Mother Hubbard's specializes in friendly ambience, nothing at all pretentious, just great food, great service and 44 high quality TVs. I was thrilled to see grilled cheese and soup on the menu at a very modest price ($6), including cole slaw and french fries. My husband had one quarter chicken with plenty of sides and attractively presented for bar food.... More

I popped into Mother Hubbard's to watch a hockey game. It was college bowl season so the place was busy. They have lots of TV's and great wait staff. The bartender was very helpful trying to find the game I was wanting to watch. This is my go to spot for watching sports in Chicago now. Nothing fancy, but you'll... More

I hit Mother Hubbard's every time I make it to Chicago. It's always a great time. The staff couldn't be nicer and they will always make sure to put on a game you want to watch. Really great to hang out with other sports loving patrons. Make sure you ask for the quiz so you can win a prize!

Bar was not busy but waitress stood around talking more than waiting. Guess they only want people who are drinking - drinks may be good but the food needs help!

We dropped in to Mother Hubbards whilst on vacation to watch some sport. First of all we were well received by staff who put on the soccer for us. Whilst sitting watching the tv we were very aware of food coming from the kitchen so we decided to try the barbecued chicken wings - which CBS no other say are... More

I popped in here on my last day for drinks only so never got to experience the bar when sports where on but the drinks are reasonably priced so couldn't complain. The bar was also lively at night time to so worth a visit if on a pub crawl around River North.

We visited here on a Sunday afternoon to watch some football and eat wings and bar food. None of which disappointed!! The wings were a bit too large for me, because I don't like them still attached, but the flavor was great. It's an excellent find downtown to watch sports.
