Hip place with a hip menu and very very good. Mac and Cheese was great, the burger even better beer selection was awesome.

First time was last Tuesday (9/17/13). Barrel beer was Loch Down. Interesting and delicious. Goat cheese appetizer was great. Wings and calamari were ok - nothing special. Macaroni and cheese with walnuts and veggies was fantastic. Service wasn't great - couldn't get seated until all 5 of our party arrived. Overall food was good, beer was above average and service was so so.

Firkin is the best of both worlds. Not only do they have a wide, far ranging tap selection, they also have a creative, well prepared, high quality menu. Both are ever changing, but you can't go wrong!

My friends and I come here once a year, only because we're all from the south suburbs. We come for the beer selection and for the atmosphere. The food is more gastropub than bar, so you won't be disappointed.

Our waiter the first year was Matt. We were pleasantly surprised to find that he was our bartender the second, third, and fourth year. Great waitstaff all around.

If you like great craft beers, this is a great place to try. You won't be disappointed.
