Great little place tucked into the south suburbs of Chicago. Tribes has a nice selection of taps available and seem to update these often. All are priced very well and served in the proper glassware.

Food is better than your average brewpub and selection is, too. Prices for food are on the pricey side to me but hey, you get what you pay for right? I think the food quality is better than average.

Atmosphere is good for a craft beer pub but me being a sports junkie I guess I'd like more sports played and where we can actually hear the game. That's just me being picky, though.

The service was exceptionally great despite being understaffed on a Sat. afternoon for our first visit here. Great space with food good enough to stand on it's own merit. I've seen past tap lists online and more often than not they are very good/great consistently; I just had bad timing being in the area when the list didn't offer much out of the ordinary.

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.

There may be two locations now, but Mokena is my favorite.

Looking past the awesome rotating tap beer selection for a brief moment the atmosphere is one of the main reasons I love coming here. The bar area is comfortable and the whole place is intimate, warm and friendly - just a like a neighborhood pub (only one with a world-class beer list).

The specialty tappings/events only make this place all the more excellent.

And without question: the best reuben sandwich I have ever had....

The selection of beers is great at this place but I feel like the food is only alright. I have been there a few times and there wasn't anything bad about the food or service but it wasn't spectacular either. I would go back to try some more of the beers they have though.

I love the atmosphere of this place! They have cool chalk board art work depicting the logos of several craft brews as well as craft beer metal-like signs! I especially like it when they have a the newest Fat Tire bike on display....wonder if they ever consider raffling it off? hhmmm... Quality is outstanding, from the service to the beer to the food options! The service that I have experienced on my visits has always been attentive, friendly and helpful with suggestions of what to drink and/or eat. My last visit I had the blackened catfish sandwich with mango salsa. The catfish was tender and seasoned just right, add the touch of sweet with the spicy and it was delicious! Overall this place has something for everyone and the staff are more than willing to educate you about the different brews, as well as make appropriate suggestions to those who are veterans as well as virgins to craft beer. If you can make the trek to the south suburbs it is well worth the drive! Enjoy!

This place is a solid little gem in the southern suburbs. You can definitely get a nice "city-like" vibe. I haven't been to the new location in Tinley Park and I hear it is much larger. I will give it a go, but I tend to like the classic friendly, low lit alehouses with well informed staff and even better beer and food. Friendly and cozy are two words that come to mind when describing the Mokena location. Steaks are outstanding and pairing it with one of the many imperial offerings on the ever-changing list make the dining experience complete. Watched a Hawks game here and it did not have the typical "meathead" sports bar atmosphere or attitude. It is nice to go out and watch a game and drink some fine beers while chatting with others. Staying squirrelled up at home watching the games some times leaves me a bit flat. I'm sure I'll be back next time I am in the area or even up for a little side trip. Getting home safely can be a challenge with all of the high-gravity beers offered. Top Notch place and well worth the visit.

Nice little place in a newer strip mall in Mokena.
Beer selection is always quite good,plenty of less common beers,and special tappings on Wednesdays. These tappings can be quite nice,and have included. beers such as CBS,Black Note,Darkness,to name only a few.
The service is quite nice even if the food can often leave something to be desired. The variety and overall selection of the food is great,the quality is unfortunately not there much of the time.
Overall,the place is nice to have available in the SW burbs.I go here often,the beer keeps me coming back.
New Tinley location opened somewhat recently,but I have yet to try it,

I've been here a few times already and each experience is great, mostly due to the selection of brews and consistency of good service. Downside is that this place is in a remote area in the far southwest suburbs.

A: This place will fool you! The building Tribes is in is a strip mall and there a tanning salon next door, wtf?

Q: Food is amazing, enough said. They have a high quality selection for a bar and it's much larger than the typical brewpub someone would go to. The beer is fresh and from what I can tell they clean out the beer lines from time to time because there isn't the noticeable funk that some places have in their draft selection.

11/1/2012 - Editing the quality to average since my most recent visit to the Mokena location. There were quite a few empty taps, both our burgers were ordered Med but came well done and the burger meat was very salty. I did complain so they could correct the issue going forward. After visiting the new Tinley Park, IL location twice since it opened, it seems as though they took the quality away from the Mokena location and put it in Tinley.

S: The waitstaff here are very attentive, even during peak hours when it's standing room only. Always a smile and quick to get drinks.

S: The menu says it all, they have EVERYTHING. Special tappings each Wednesday and the beer selections change with the seasons to follow the breweries' releases. Food selection is decent too (There's even some vegetarian dishes for those types.)

F: Covered already
V: Warning, can be expensive depending on the type of food and beers ordered. Dinner and drinks can easily run $35-60 a person.

Tribes Mokena is my local go to option for craft beer and good food.

Visited on a Friday night after a long day of work. Located in a strip mall, parking is ample. The place was packed upon arrival and we ordered a few beers at the bar while we waited for a table. After a short wait, we settled in to a table overlooking the dining area. The server promptly greeted us and seeing we already had drinks, offered us water and a few suggestions on the menu.

Tribes has a nice rotating selection of about 40 drafts and always updates regularly on BeerMenus. The choices range from local standouts to hard to find limited and seasonal releases. Glassware is always appropriate to the selection.

We had the mussels, fish and chips, and a burger. All the food was well prepared and very good. Menu choices are far better than the traditional bar food, so bring an appetite. Service was good and we never felt rushed even though the bar was crowded.

I look forward to the new Tinley Park location to open soon. It will be hard to follow the high standards set by the original location.

Went to Tribes for the first time yesterday. I have to say this is quite the gem in the South burbs as it definitely stands out as one of the better beer bars. When you first walk in, the look of it reminds me of an Irish pub meets FFF. What I mean is that it has the big wooden bar and beer paraphernalia all over the walls (including chalk drawings of the logos what they have on top) but instead of it being all traditional beer logo (think Guinness etc.), it's craft beer focused.

The place gets pretty packed as I was there on a Wednesday and around 7, there was a pretty decent wait. The service was pretty good once I got the waiter to realize that I had arrived and meet my wife, which took awhile.

The beer selection was really good here and is what makes this worth the trip. They had fresh Hopslam, a variety of Stone, Founder's RIS, some FFF beers and a few others. They also seem to partner with the breweries to do release nights and promotion nights as well.

The food was solid. We both had burgers which were good and large. They also have poutine as an appetizer (who doesn't love a place with poutine). Dessert we had a piece of chocolate cake as big as your head.

Overall, a nice place and worth stopping by if you're in the area.

I've been here numerous times and live pretty close. Located near the end of a strip-mall, Tribes is a pretty small sized place. There is a small bar located in the first room when you walk in and off to the left is a dining area with tables.

Atmosphere is fine, some times I have been here it has been pretty quiet. Other times there have been good crowds and some noise. The tvs above the bar give a great opportunity to watch some sports while drinking great beer. I like checking out all the tap handles and beer posters adorning the walls. The Dark Lord vertical, Darkness, and GI BCS variants on the top shelf are also a nice too (should be stored better!).

The selection here is great. A decent amount of craft companies and styles, however it does seem to favor American craft and IPAs. Seems like a good amount of taps are constantly rotating with new/different beers to try which is nice. They also have wine and a bunch of whiskey but I stick to the beer.

What sets Tribes above is some of the special tappings they have had on Wednesdays. They have had everything from Founders Blushing Monk/Devil Dancer to FFF Shark Pants/Zombie Dust to DFH 120 min on tap at different points this summer. They also had a FFF takeover at the beginning of the summer. Its amazing a small place in the south suburbs gets these special events.

I have only eaten basics such as the wings, burger, and chicken sandwich. All of them were tasty, and the tater tots are a nice mix-up from fries all the time.

Pricing for everything seems fair. Standard food prices and standard craft beer prices. Special events are a little more expensive but that is to be expected.

Overall, this is a gem in the south suburbs. The special events really set them apart and make it worth a trip. They are good about keeping their twitter updated with all the events going on. Most worthy of a stop if you are anywhere in the area for a few beers and some food.

This was my first time visiting this establishment. I was a little skeptical as it is located in a strip mall which doesn't seem like an ideal location for a craft beer pubhouse. It doesn't help that it's located between a cleaners and a pottery painting store.

Walking in I wasn't impressed really. It was cool seeing all the tap handles, but I wasn't impressed with all the empty boxes and metal tacker signs all over the wall. They definitely went with the quantity over quality factor. The lay-out is also quite odd, but I guess being in a strip mall does limit what you can do.

We sat down to order our beers and the server was very knowledgeable about what was on the menu and even let us know about a few things that weren't on that menu that had just been tapped during middle of the day (the menus are updated daily with a date stamp at the top which is always a plus).

I was very impressed with the menu for being an establishment of this kind. The lay out of the menu was easy to read as well. The beer menu was divided into different style of beer, draft on the front and bottles on the back. The food menu was also laid out nicely. It wasn't that big, but I think it helped because everything we had was delicious. The two appetizers we had were a lager infused cheese dip and thai inspired calamari. Both delicious and I had the whiskey bacon BBQ burger for entree, also great. Fresh cut fries as well. The only knock is that once we got a food out waitress didn't come around that often even though I wanted to get some more beer. The also do flights (very reasonably priced).

Overall I was impressed minus the atmosphere. I wish this place was closer as I would frequent the bar much more often.

Depending on the day of the week, this place has a different crowd/atmosphere to offer. Weekdays can be a smaller, albeit not quieter evening with some open mic entertainment. Weekends tend to get crowded at times, but I don't recall ever waiting an extended time for a seat or server. Tribes has been a common destination for watching bball/baseball/hockey as well, without all the hoopla.

My go-to on the menu has to be any of the beef/bison burgers. I've had a couple of the other sandwiches off the menu as well, and thought all of them were delicious. Food prices were somewhat higher than I expected, though.

Beer selection is constantly being updated (every couple weeks) with some of the newly trending and seasonally released beers. They also offer to-go service on a select number of single bottles and growlers, although there are some cheaper options available at retail stores.

Staff is very knowledgeable and will provide an idea for a brew to try if you're interested.

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.

I was visiting Joliet for the weekend, and a friend of mine took me to this place for a few beers.

They have a great tap and bottle list with reasonable prices. Nothing 'rare', but I don't expect anyplace to have 'rare' beer on tap randomly. Usually places that have rare beers on tap announce it and it's gone quickly. The beer menu gives you a brief description of the beer, exactly what size pour your getting, what the ABV is, and how much it costs. This leaves no guess work to ordering the beer for anyone who is wondering what they're getting.

The bartender we had was A+ My friend is quite new to craft beers, and the bartender was able to help him make a few selections, even though the bar was quite busy. Also, he was on top of asking me what I wanted next. I never had an empty glass.

The prices were quite the norm for what I expect for craft beers. $5 for pints of normal craft brews up to $9 for smaller pours of the high powered stuff.

As far as the atmosphere or layout... meh. I walk in, and sit at the bar, and as long as the beer is good, I really don't care too much what the decorations look like. There are abundant TV's for watching sports. I asked the bartender about the '05-'10 Dark Lord Vertical sitting on the wall, and he told me they just belong to an employee, and they're just on display, and not for sale.

I will visit this place again, next time I'm in Joliet and can get out for a beer.

Stopped in here on a slightly impromptu trip down to the general Joliet area. Had to. The place is in a new-ish strip mall, and comprises a small-ish bar area with a cove or grotto of sorts for seating off to the side. Jeff below is right: this layout is just plain odd. The bar area's pretty inviting, with dark wood paneling and plenty of tap handles and beer signs on the walls. I bellied up, ordered a flight. The beers are all pretty nice (especially the Three Floyds offerings they had going on, left over from a recent tap takeover), though nothing was necessarily groundbreakingly rare or anything. The bartender was very amiable, knowledgeable, and helpful, especially to the other patrons, who didn't seem to know what they wanted to order. Proper glassware was abundant. I sorta liked the fact that the bottle list is relatively small, as the focus is clearly on the taps. Pricing was pretty damn good, from what I could tell (though, since I don't frequent the area, I'm not sure if it's typical or not). Overall, if in the area, I would definitely come back, though I kinda doubt that I'd jaunt down here too often otherwise. Good times, though.

*this review has been edited after a couple recent visits*

So the tribes seems to have understood some of my complaints (available below) and made an effort to class the place up a bit. They removed the empty cardboard boxes and improved the decorations/paint trim scheme.
There was no up charge when I asked for BBQ sauce, so I appreciate that as well.
The menu looks more professional and worthy of a beer bar (as opposed to a "beer list" at Applebee's).
The food is still good, and the selection is better than before. The waitresses are still more friendly (though slightly less knowledgeable) than the bartenders.
The beer selection has even improved and I'm happy to see more keg tapping events going on here.
Overall-- This place is improving. It is now a bar I would stop at once in a whole (possibly more often if it weren't out of the way for me). I hope this trend continues!

*this review has been edited after a discussion with the owner of the bar*

Disappointing.

That sums up "The Tribes" in a word.

When you walk in, the first thing you notice is the odd layout. The bar is located in a strip mall, and t's as if they added a 2nd unit late in the design and planning stages. What's worse is the actual decor: crap everywhere. The woodwork behind the bar would be nice, if the industrial style rafters and pipe ceiling wasn't exposed. The bar displays empty cardboard boxes and metal beer signs from just about every brewery that gives free metal beer signs to bars. The overall look is cluttered.
I understand taking free decorations from distributors-- maybe raffle them off or give them away... The real problem I see is this: the look is too cluttered and "cheap" to really attract the "middle-aged date night" crowd-- but it's too nice and expensive to really attract the "college kid" crowd. I fall in the middle of that demographic (30 and married with kids), and I can see the advantages and drawbacks to both sides of the coin. It seems to me that a push needs to be made in either direction. Push the good food good beer angle with an upscale vibe, or go the opposite route and make it a sawdust and peanut shell kinda hang out. The fact that it seems stuck in the middle is where the problem lies-- it's as though the bar doesn't know what it's trying to be.

The menu is ridiculous looking. Protip: if you open up a beer bar and wish to be taken seriously, don't make your menu look like the kids menu at Applebee's. Put the beers in a LIST-- either by style or by brewery-- don't have them arranged under cutesy little sketched drawings and cloud-like bubbles surrounding headers like "The hoppy stuff."

The selection isn't bad-- it just has a lot of milds and beers you can find almost anywhere. 90% of the handles are nothing special. The other 10% are better-- but I cam find those beers on tap at several other places that I like more. As far as it goes, the selection is quite decent for the craft beer abyss that is the New Lenox/Mokena area. The tap list includes many beers like Breckinridge Small Batch 471 IPA, Gumballhead, and New Belgium Ranger-- these are beers that are solid offerings, especially to those people just starting out in the world of craft beer. Try it on tap before buying a whole 6 pack- great way to build up a list of styles and beers you like. A BIG plus for The Tribes is the fact that they do flights. This is a great idea, and one of the only places around that offers it. The prices on the flights are quite fair.
I suppose my biggest (perhaps only) complaint with the tap list and selection is this: I can buy all of those beers at any of the shops I frequent. When I go out to a bar and paying bar prices, I want something else...

The food is good. I've tried the pulled pork and the burger. Both were solid pub fare. The prices seemed a little high, and the .50 cent upcharge for BBQ sauce is annoying. Don't nickel and dime people... It makes us not want to come back!

There are bottles available to go, which could be kind of nice, if you don't mind the $3-$4 per bomber markup... I suppose this is nice if you want to continue drinking at home or bring beer to a party without stopping at another location. The beer store selection in the area is dismal at best, so the extra few dollars allows for a much better selection.

I've been here 3 times so far, but i dont think this is a place I'll frequent, except in 3 situations;
1) they have a tap release of a beer I want.
2) I need a place to meet some one for an in person trade.
3) buddies in the area want to grab a quick beer after work.
The bar holds no real draw for me. I probably wouldn't bring my wife here on a date.
With that said, I will come back and give it another shot. I'll edit my review accordingly.

I've been meaning to get to this place for awhile, but it's out in the middle of nowhere (please forgive me if you're local). Some shill reviews here had me skeptical, especially after finally locating it in a strip mall between a dry cleaners and tanning salon. Deep breath, go inside, hey... it's alright!

Past a small vestibule waiting area, you are in the larger bar room, with a dining area off to the side. On a Sunday afternoon, this room was full of families with kids, but thankfully the bar itself was kid-free. Nice to see them cater to both families and the bar crowd. It was fairly loud, with high open ceilings and stereo at Friday night volume. The bar itself was nice, a few dozen taps on the wall, set into a copper basin, with wood detailing around that. Up above there were assorted beer cases stacked up, 3 flatscreens, and a shelf with branded growlers strangely enough. Lots of beer signs tacked up all over the walls, and some nice colorful chalkboards done by hand.

Beer selection was good, though it leaned heavily toward IPAs and US craft (only imports were Delirium & Guinness). I wanted a stout to go with a few oysters (it was during oysterfest), but sadly Guinness was the only option. FFF was on special, $3 Gumballhead was music to my ears. Beer list was broken down by general styles, with abv, short description, BA/RB rating, and price. There weren't really any bottles worth mentioning, just a handful of macros. I get that the draft beer is the main focus, but it wouldn't hurt to have a few bottles of stuff not on draft, namely imports.

Food was the highlight, oysters and a generous portion of lamb loli-chops, 4 of them with a garlic oil and roasted squash. Guacamole was alright, and the panini was really just a grilled cheese, but also ok. A broad and varied menu covering pub food, cajun, mexican, asian, and a few other random things. Bison burgers looked excellent, i'll have to get one next time.

Overall a good place for fresh drafts and good food, an oasis in the craft beer desert of the southwest suburbs. Worth a stop if you're local or passing through, but ultimately wouldn't consider it a major destination.

I love this place. I liked the old Galway Tribes but this is BETTER! Yes its in a shopping center and the place is kinda small but once your past that... you find

1) Great selection of tap beers, best around comparable to selection in the city.

2) Knowledgeable bartenders, been here twice different barkeep each time. Each guy knew his stuff. Friendly as well.

3) Good food selection and excellent taste.

It feels like a neighborhood bar that you can be comfortable with but not a chain establishment. For example: they are having a contest in July with beer from 3 floyds vs Stone Brewing. Very entertaining. Place is worth checking out. Psst>>> Have the Bison burger. Very tender. Order it rare or med rare.

NEW FAR SOUTHWEST SUBURBAN BEER BAR KING!! this is my second review of the tribes. any inner-city beer snob could hang here. they improved their lager selection - so i'm happy. the place has a great old school vibe. small works here; but they need to raise the pendant lights over the bar to see the tv. food is 4.0 good for a bar/grill; i haven't been disappointed with any snacks yet. monday/tuesday draught specials for budget-minded consumers. they get an "A" for effort in my book. will be returning to borrow more of there glassware...
