Went on a Saturday afternoon (around 2PM) with a buddy from the neighborhood.
Atmosphere: Not full, but not empty either- was able to get seating immediately. Overall, very nice ambience, well-lit and the decor is very classy yet not over the top. (4.5)
Quality: Well-done, well-run, well-lit and not too noisy at all. Easy to have a nice conversation and the bartender (we sat in the bar area) was very friendly and it was easy to strike up conversation with him. (4.5)
Service: Fantastic. The bartender was great with the recommendations- since it was early afternoon, we wanted the refreshing, sessionable stuff. He did not steer us wrong, and checked on us frequently. The food did take a bit of time to get out to us, but we barely noticed. (5)
Selection: Very good beer selection for sure. Lots of interesting options on tap that fit the bill. The best part is being able to buy 6oz pours for $2.50 (with a full glass being $4-7 depending on the beer). It's actually more cost effective and makes it a lot of fun to try all kinds of different stuff, especially the lesser known local stuff (Ale Syndicate, etc.) without committing to full pours. (4.5)
Food: Awesome, I got the Ansel A sandwich which is basically a fried chicken sandwich with avocado, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, chipotle sauce. Fantastic sandwich that also came with our two sides of peanut pasta and chips. The peanut pasta is excellent, wish they would serve them in larger quantities! (4.75)
Two people and 6 different flights of beers a person plus lunch for each came out to $60 total. Not bad, certainly reasonable. Basically a sandwich and 3 beers for $30 a person. Not the best but definitely reasonable for Chicago.
