If you are a sports fan and like a beer this is the place for you!!! 72 beers on tap and although the menu is above average could do with some ribs on the menu. Also does daily specials which look awesome value. The food which was ordered was very appetising and delicious.

I will return when in the area, that is 100%

I went to the ale house, very delighted and exited.
Inside it has been busy, but ok.

I ordered my bulldog ale, and waited. Minutes after minutes went by. Ordered my delicious burger, but no beer.

I ordered another beer, due the ale has been sold out. In a brewery?
My burger came , but no beer.

The burger 28 is very good but the fries have been sooooo soft and not tasty.

I have had to pay my warm beer, too.

Cooling went down also .

One time and no more.

Roter, i’m very sorry to hear about your visit. I will most definitely share this with my management team to improve this in the near future. I can assure you that this is not a normal practice for us and I will do everything in my power to make sure it doesn’t repeat itself. I will also communicate with my kitchen to make sure that the french fries are fresh each and every time. Thank you for your feedback again.

Nothing really special about the food here - but this location is MUCH nicer than the Carol Stream location.... that's for sure.

The pizza is good - and Thursday night is great for the chicken tenders. Careful though - the ketchup they serve in the dish is spicy - so if you don't like spicy, ask for a bottle of ketchup!

Service is spotty - sometimes awesome, sometimes terrible.

Lots of beer to choose from, and plenty of TVs to watch.

We stopped by for dinner a few nights ago. We don’t usually frequent chain restaurants, but didn’t realize we had been at a different location of this same chain until we saw the menu item “Goat in a Date”. With a unique salad name like that, we quickly made the connection and were pleased, as I HAD given the Rolling Meadows location a 5 star rating. This experience was very different.

The restaurant is VERY dark. In fact, my husband and I had to move around in our booth to find lighting sufficient to read the menu....which explains how I didn’t notice the fiesta salad I ordered came with buffalo chicken... which I don’t like, and doesn’t typically come on a “fiesta” salad. I didn’t eat my meal and explained this to the server when she came by. She simply said, “oh, sorry about that”, and that was the end of it.

My daughter ordered an Oreo milkshake, but at a price of $8, we were surprised when it came in a very small cup, smaller than our water glasses.

My husband and I ordered beer flights, but no expectation of what the beers were was offered when they were served.

Our server was pleasant enough, but we expected a bit more, particularly since we were very impressed with the other location we had visited. We feel the prices, particularly that of the tiny milkshake, didn’t match our experience.

Check out the menu on line for daily specials and coupons..always something good for a fair price. Great burgers and nice beer selection, but try the chicken and waffles for a treat. Would recommend.
