Bad Apple is pretty much across the street from Half Acre. They have a really great draft list. Their menu theme is burgers, with about 20 different concoctions (there’s other things on the menu too). The good food is really delicious. Drafts are great and in constant rotation. There is really cool sculpture art and painting all over the wall. Bad Apple is absolutely worth a visit. If you’re from out of town, hit Half Acre Brewery and then come here for a burger. We had a really weird service moment once. The pour sizes weren’t listed very clearly. Our beer came out in a 16 oz goblet and it was half full. I felt like I was getting shorted. After looking back at the menu we found the pour sizes. We asked the bartender about it and he said "they don’t make glasses that size". Huh...? Pretty sure you can order almost any size/shape glass from the catalog... Other than an awkward misunderstanding, this place has always been pretty cool. (954 characters)

Visited this again for the first time in a few years, and I was very pleased. The food is standard pub fare, but the quality is definitely above average and is fairly priced, especially considering that it is in Chicago! The beer selection is expansive and well curated. Plus, it is literally across the street from Half Acre Brewery, which makes it even more appealing as a destination. (387 characters)

This place takes its beer selection very seriously. Love the atmosphere and it is often a place I bring out-of-towners. Food selection is good, basically above average pub grub, but the beer more than compensates. (213 characters)

Great food, awesome selection of craft beer. They even have $1 / 1oz samples of most if you just want to give something a try. (129 characters)
