Went here twice this weekend. Really liked the food and beer they had.
Atmosphere is decent. Good at nights. Layout is interesting. Expansive dining area, kind of confusing to manuever around. Didn't seem too organized, but whatever. Bar was long but not too many people were bellying up when I was there. Good amount of tv's, good for weekend football watching. Good bands when I was there and the setup was good.
Food is good. Sandwiches are far above the quality I expected. Thick meats, great bread, fresh cheese, quality condiments. Pizza was also really good. Ingredients aplenty and they pile it on if you ask for it.
Beer was also above par. Not the most choices when I was there but everything was solid. I didnt have any stunners but everything was solid to really good. I came here twice, says enough.

Piece is a must visit for out of towners. Everyone has to get over the idea that all Chicagoans only eat is deep dish. While you won't find an extensive beer list here you will find a small, but great selection of Piece brews. They have their regulars / year rounds (4-6) with a small rotation of seasonals and limited releases (2-3 beers).
It's always busy, but if you go for an early or late dinner then getting a table shouldn't be a problem. Avoid this place 5pm-8pm or you can put your name in and walk around Wicker Park while you wait. There are plenty of bars to get a beer at while you wait an unreasonably long time.
The beers are above average with a few standing out against others. Most of the brews are of the Belgian style (not my cup of tea), but they do some great stouts and porters. My personal favorite, Flatiron is a solid oatmeal stout with some chocolate notes.
The pizza is what really sets this place apart. Do not order a pepperoni and cheese with red sauce. It's a great pizza, but you have so many other options here that you're doing yourself a disservice. We always order the white pizza with mashed potatoes and bacon. Delicious.
Piece is a great spot for game days and I'd suggest going early then bar hopping in Wicker Park or down Division (a few blocks south) for a great sampling of Chicago night life.
