Description: Welcome to your Chicago neighborhood tavern. With over 80 craft beers, 20 enticing wines and a large selection of scotch, whiskey and bourbon, we recommend you come thirsty. Come in for a drink, but you will want to stay for the food. From piled high nachos, to mouthwatering burgers and meatloaf that can rival your moms (yes, that’s a challenge) it’s more than just your average pub grub. Located in East Lakeview, we’re your official Blackhawks bar, Michigan State bar and your Chicago sports bar for all of your favorite games. Sit back and relax, we have NHL Center Ice, NFL Sunday Ticket, MLB Extra Innings, Big Ten Network, NBCSN, CBSSN, ESPN Channels, Comcast Sports Net and more premium channels… it’s better than home.

“Good beer”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We went into this place for a quick beer and found it so good that we ended up eating and staying all evening. The hard working staff were pleasant, friendly and made us feel welcome. The beer was excellent with a very good range and big selection. Some of the food was slightly disapointing but we ate there again the next day so it must have been good. A great overall experience and I'll definately go back if I ever find myself in the area again. Recommended.

“Ok for drinks”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

A decent sports bar with good drinks specials as well.
Service a little poor however, we went twice on a Saturday afternoon when quiet and the staff seemed unsinterested.

“Very nice bar near Days Inn”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Michael Diversey's is just a short walk from the popular Days Inn on West Diversey and became our favourite eating and drinking place while we were staying there. They have a good choice of about 12-13 beers on tap and another 60-70 or so in bottle (my approximate count from the beer menu). The food was very nice (I thought that the chicken pot pie was particularly good) and reasonably priced and the staff were very pleasant.
It's probably best to keep clear when the Blackhawks are playing as I imagine it could get a bit noisy (plus you'll probably have problems getting a seat)!

“Quaint and comfortable”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

A sports pub, dark, booths, comfortable. The cheddar cheeseburger was very good; I think the coke machine needs bottled water--my bourbon and coke had a slight taste of chlorine. Great for watching hockey! Right across the street from Trader Joe's.

“Great Neighborhood Pub”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised to have such a good dinner at Michael Diversey's. We went healthy with salads and salmon, but really did want to try the chicken pot pie. We had great service by Kellie. And the owner came around checking on the tables. Blackhawks rule here, when that game started, the Bulls were overruled. Easy to get to, Diversey and Clark/Broadway intersection.
