“An average bar restaurant”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The food is okay here, but they are often out of some of the menu items. The place is designed for music and dancing and if you go just for dinner, you should expect bar food. The salads and other menu offerings are not bad but nothing special.

“GROSS”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Bad food, flat draft beer, occasional wafts of something that smelled like vomit, SLOOOOW service, and some pretty rude help. That about sums it up!!!

“Pick the right day”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This place can be anything you want, if you hit it at the right time. The food is pretty good but in my opinion the the beer prices are too high.
I went a few times. Sundays are good to watch the games. It is a huge place with a lot of live music events.
Don't mess with the asian looking bar tender girl - ask for the dude that just moved back from Vegas....

“NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

OMG..went in today for first time..had heard good things over the years. Brought family in after Didiers to watch Bears game,eat and have a few drinks. Waited 10 minutes before even being acknowledged. Server asks us what we would like to order...had no menus. Waited about a half an hour for appetizers that were mediocre at best. Service...awful. Waited a full hour and a half at least for our meals,...because THEY RAN OUT OF FRIES!!!! Never thought possible, but the WATER was bad! Bathrooms had broken doors. Menus were old and falling apart!! I cut my finger on the old lamination!!!!Entrees were mediocre at best. My daughter felt ill afterwards. No management apparent whatsoever. Almost forgot, staff was wheeling dirty dishes and fresh produce through the dining room on a cart!! NOTHING was ever offered to compensate for the awful serveice and mediocre food and the wait!!! As a restaurant owner, I was appalled! And FYI, I have NEVER written a negative review in my life and I dine out often!! NEVER AGAIN!!

“Wrigly Cubby Bear Lounge, ugh”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Went to a Cub game and stopped at The Cubby bear, Addison-Clark. Water was more expensive that a glass of tea, plus we had to give them a credit card prior to ordering. Paid cash and did not get card back. At for game before remembering the card and had to go back. NEVER again to the Cubby bear.
