vibe: 3.75 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 4 | $$

Atmosphere: Your standard normal brewpub, but with tons of distracting large-screen TVs spread throughout the entire restaurant. I would prefer that the TVs stay limited to the bar area, but that's just not how they do things. New location is open and airy, but rather loud.

Quality: Good brews and great food. Mickey Finn's brews are nothing that will blow you away and demand worship, but are a great addition to the northern IL microbrew scene. Solid offerings that are tasty, but nothing that will blow you away.

Selection: Always have a handful of home-made microbrews on tap, along with two or three guest taps. Styles vary between the safe (wheat ales and amber ales) to the adventurous (smoked porters).

Food: Average pub food choices. Excellent hamburgers.

Value: Good pricing for both beer and food. Great atmosphere and always busy. They know what they're doing here, but it's a shame they chose not to get in on the craft beer scene (in terms of bottling/canning or offering true growlers) while they had the chance. Mickey Finn's has been a staple in northern IL for years yet it seems they are behind the eight ball in the craft brew scene.
