Varied choices with soups and salads as an option. And beer of course. Is larger on the inside than it looks from the front.

Casual bar fair. Good higher end burgers and a kids menu of good food (versus some low end shlock). decent selection of beers. I would recommend if you’re in the area, but wouldn’t go out of my way to go back.More

Thanks. More than a decent selection of beers, though. There are 30 American craft beers taps plus one cask ale tap. Many of the selections are local, from Chicago's (America's #1 beer city) 150+ breweries, and some of the selections relatively rare. All the selections...More

This was the best grilled cheese I’ve eaten. The cashew butter was an addition I’ve never thought of, but it made it delicious.

Average service and mediocre sandwiches. Would not come back which is a shame as it could have potential.

Hi Tim. We're always open to constructive criticism if you want to reach out (mark@jerryssandwiches.com). As you can see from the other reviews, yours is a minority opinion so I hope you give us another try. Mark

Stopped by Jerry’s for beers and small plates with friends on our recent trip to the Windy City and found it to be very average. Of the 6 beers we tried, only one stood out. The appetizers were mediocre as well...nobody finished the soft pretzels....More

Thanks for the feedback. Just a couple of small pushbacks. We are routinely praised for having some of the most interesting and deepest beer menus in the city. All of our taps feature only American craft beers. Nick, our beer buyer, is one of the...More

Thanks Bricky! If you stopped by this past weekend, it was indeed one of those San Diego days in Chicago, high seventies with bright blue skies. We do make that corned beef in house so it is pretty tasty. Best wishes. Mark

David, You're like my cranky grandfather (if he were also passive-aggressive). So you couldn't get in the unlit locked auxiliary door which you tried instead of the lit, marked, large main entrance? You chugged your water then counted the time until the glass was refilled?...More

I was visiting Lincoln Square when I found this place. The service was really good, the waiter was very attentive. I ordered a very small beer but that was my mistake (I don't understand ounces measure), but the beer was good.More
