We went primarily for the craft beers, and were not left disappointed, a wide and varied selection on tap, a huge number of bottles. This is all on top of an excellent choice of Belgian beers too. The food is also really good, we have a number of dishes between us and everyone enjoyed what they had. The duck fat... More

Really good varied selection of beers to choose from, and a good take on belgian cuisine, makes this place ever so popular and has a great vibe. We had a table out by the balcony (best place to get a table)

Got to our hotel after 10:00. Wandered down Clark and asked several women where we should eat. They suggested Hopleaf. Good food. I had the duck reuben. Really good. And the doorman asked for my ID. I'm 56 years old! He knows how to flatter a woman.

I've been going to Hopleaf for 10-years or so... This is the best belgian pub in town with the best fries in Chicago & the largest belgian & international beer choices in town! I love all the beers you can try there (I get the La Chouffe or Fin du monde or Kriek or their draft beer there). The steak... More

I should begin by explaining why the rating is not a 5.....a fair rating for this visit would be a 4.5 but Trip Advisor does not allow partial point ratings. Deductions were for soggy fries, not crisp like they usually are. And......ordered mussels for two and received an order of mussels for 1. Although they corrected the problem, it was... More

visited with friends on a business trip. the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The menu is a good mix of sandwiches and grill. The portions were very generous. The duck sandwich was excellent. There is a huge menu of beers and the staff were very knowledgable about them.

Always a "must do" stop when visiting our son in Andersonville. Best wine on tap I have ever had! Great beer selection. Good food, also.

Fun little bar with a huge selection of Belgium beers. In Andersonville- a hopping place. They serve food also and it is delicious. I had their mussels and they were wonderful.My husband had the grass fed brisket sandwich and it was to die for. A great spot - one of the best in Andersonville!

So we ordered the famous CBJ sandwich. This is a grilled fig jam + cashew butter+ raclette cheese grilled sandwich. So very very greasy, and the sides were barely flavorful blue cheese Mac & cheese & home made chips. Holy carnivore overload! We al needed the bathroom 2 hours later. Greasy sandwich, greasy chips, fatty Mac and cheese. Hey consider... More

Finally made it to the Hopleaf Bar this week. We had a wonderful time. The beer selection was incredible, the day we were there they tapped some Rodenbach Alexandre sour beer from Belgium that was tremendous. We also ordered food which was very good. I was very impressed with the friendly, welcoming staff which put us at ease from the... More
