Had my inaugural experience at Sheffield's over the weekend. The layout's a bit awkward, with several bars having different selections. All of them have good brews, but some are more good than others. Shop around.

Food was alright. Pulled pork sliders were not particularly traditional, and were dry, but had a bit of smoke and outer brown, and kept me happy. Fries were excellent. Together, those cost perhaps 15 bucks.

Beers were nice. I had a good Flemish Red and a couple American micros, and prices were good for the neighborhood.

Service was prompt with the food. Can't say much about the bartenders. It was loud, so there was no room for beer chat.

Overall, the atmosphere is very North Side, and somewhat dude-bro-like, but if you can get past that, it has some great beer and very passable food, if not Michelin-worthy.

A brilliant bar. Actually three bars in one - each with its' own feel to it. Haven't had chance to check out the beer garden but the inside bars are outstanding. Great service, varied taplist and top notch BBQ on offer. Went during a quieter period so can't speak for Cubs game days but this was an outstanding experience.

My favorite bar in Chicago. The taps rotate at a decent rate and they have a lot of great Midwest beers at very reasonable prices. They also make sure to have a very strong representation of Chicago breweries on tap, which I appreciate.

Food is great. The crowd definitely skews younger during Cubs games and weekend nights.

Overall, it is a place that anyone can enjoy, so it is very easy to convince non-craft beer fans to come.
