Stopped in here with BeerFMAndy and our ladies recently and gave it a whirl.

The decor seems to be upscale restaurant/sports bar. Which suits me just fine. Dark wood and rich upholstery cover the place. Along with a large number of flat screens. Low lighting to give it that almost romantic feel. We were seated in a large booth and persused the menus. Andy and I actually walked up to the bar to check out the chalk board to see what seasonals were being offered. Unfortunately it was rather sparse. We sat back down and were informed they wereout of all seasonals except the porter. I love porters so this wasn't all bad.

The beers were served at proper temp in nice oversized pints. The food was fantastic. The pretzel trio was EHHPIC! The pizza was very tasty as well.

About the only complaint I would have is the price. A bit steep for my taste but it is IL. I would go back for dinner for sure.

Nice facility. Good serive. Above average casual American cuisine. Middle of the road craft beer.

The last time I was there, they were putting all their beers in this little mason jar glass.
They used to have tall glasses for the tritica, but now put all beers in the same glass.
Does anyone else have a problem with this? Now, I have not been there since they made this glass change, if they went back to REAL glasses, I would like to know.
