I want to love this place. Their tap list is massive and awesome. The food is okay at best. Here's their major fault: I find the bartenders to be standoffish and rude (when I trouble them for a beer). The place is usually pretty full but it shouldn't be that hard to get a beer at the bar. Having said that, I'm willing to give them a third chance. Negative points for charging $1 more per pint than their peers.

This is my favorite spot in Chicago. They usually have some rarer beers on tap plus they have some unique beers of there own. I love the Kentucky Common.

So I've been to Local Option twice, the first time was a great experience while the second time was terrible. First time I went was on a Saturday night and we went for dinner and drinks, the server was super nice and attentive, making some good suggestions on beer and food. Had a muffaletta sandwich that was good but there was seriously like an entire jar of olives on that thing..way too many. But had some good tasty drafts including FFF War Mullet and their tasty Blood ov the Kings. Second time, I went on a Saturday afternoon with a buddy and we sat at the bar. THe bartender did not even acknowledge our existence for at least 5 minutes, and it wasn't that crazy busy. We ordered a round of Zombie Dusts, and to our surprise they poured them into 10 oz mugs and charged $16 for the round ---- I couldn't believe it! I mean cmon a Pale Ale should be served in a pint, no exceptions. What a Fn rip off,
