I've been here several times, accumulated a good feel for this place, and felt I should review it.

Atmosphere: Tribes is a smaller place with a nice cozy atmosphere. There is a long bar that has tvs above it and the many taps in front of you. There are tables in the front part to sit and converse with a party. There is also a larger dining room area where you can get comfortable. Of the times I've been here it was only full to an uncomfortable point once. The music selection is great and at a good volume.

Quality: These guys know beer and whiskey. If you have a question on any of the beers you can be assured they will know the answer. They are active in the craft community and always have a top notch selection of craft beers on tap.

Service: Service is always friendly and helpful. The food is made quick and the beer is served even quicker. The pours are always great.

Food: Seeing as this place is an offspring of a much larger restaurant once upon a time...the good food has carried over. Whether it is an appetizer or meal, the food has always been good.

Value: You pay the appropriate price for what you are getting.

Mokena Tribes is a great combo of great food, beer, and service. The place itself is a little on the small side, but it has a "Cheers"-like homey atmosphere. 40+ taps and great food. You can get anything from a burger or sandwich, all the way up to a really good steak. Taps change frequently and there's usually a special tapping every Wednesday. The volume level is very good here. Not overly loud. Tribes is definitely the go to place in the sw burbs!

Service at the bar is great. Service elsewhere is a little hit or miss. That is really my only complaint.

Food is good with a nice variety of appetizers and entrees. Outstanding burgers.

Beer selection is rotating and there's always something for just about any taste with 40 or so tap handles.

Gets crowded quick on the weekends, and the bar area is a little small. Overall, a great place, and I stop in regularly.
