Stopped by this place to meet some fellow BAs. We sat at a table near the bar for lunch on a Sunday in January. It was fairly quiet in there with a few guys sitting at the bar watching a game.

The beers were consistent and very cheap (6.50 pitchers). The food we had was solid pub grub. I enjoyed what I had and it seemed that everyone else in the group did too. There were 8 Emmett's beers to choose from.

Our service was good and quick. I definitely will head back here when I'm in the neighborhood. There's a Sam's that isn't too far away, and Emmett's is just a short stroll from the Metra.

Emmett's is a nice place with a few decent brews. The food is pretty good, but a bit pricey. The beers are above average and every once in a while they will have a brew that is really surprising. The place is definitely clean and professional and the atmosphere is decent. Stopping by for some brews on a Friday night is always a treat.

I liked this place. A very clean, nice atmosphere. It almost feels like a "chain" but I don't think it is. The beer selection is similar to a place like Rock Bottom Brewery -- nothing will blow your mind, but they make a pleasant, clean, polished product.

Good atmosphere and great beer. I am looking forward to trying more of their stuff. The Victory Pale Ale was a solid beer. I especially want to try their some of their darker beers. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the south Chicago suburban area. The bar is fun and the dining room is a great place to have dinner and enjoy a brew or two.
