I had to take a break while my wife and girls were spending money at the American Girl Store nearby on Michigan Avenue. Great location, I had planned a trip to Chicago and wanted to get away for a few pints. I thought this was the place within walking distance that had the best selection -- and I wasn't disappointed. They had a great selection of local beers (several from Metropolitan Brewery that I would've like to have tried, Goose Island) as well as beers not available where in Ohio (Surly, Port Brewing, several Allagash and Stone). The bartenders were very knowledgeable -- took time to answer any questions and made some excellent recommendations based on my taste. My only regret is that I so excited about the beers, I forgot to ask for a menu and ran out of time to order any food, but the menu looked OK -- sandwiches, appetizers and finger food. Definitely worth a return visit next trip to the Windy City.

Solid reliable food with monthly specials (often very good and creative) in the burger, wing and mac and cheese categories. Basic burgers are good, wings are very good, with poncho and firecracker being favorites. Friendly and knowledgeable staff too.

A staple for great craft beer, good food, and the best wings in Chicago (and they have the awards to back that up). The staff is friendly and is knowledgeable in their beer selection. They even have some rarities that they are willing to sell. If you're in Chicago, you have to stop here.
