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.

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.

I've liked this place for a while now but I have to say they have really become, for me, one of the best beer and burger spots in the area. The food in on point and the beer menu (bottle and draft) is outstanding. From fairly rare Midwest offerings mixed with a healthy selection of newer or prominent local breweries. Servers are friendly and knowledgable.

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