I enjoyed my time here this past Friday. The prices were fine for a good beer place in Chicago--six to eight dollars for a Belgian or bigger American beer is normal, and given the prime location almost surprising.

I had some decent potato skins and flatbread there, too--and I'm a prick about food. It's definitely a good price point for the comparatively expensive neighborhood it's in--a block from the Mag Mile. Perhaps a bit more than two dollar signs for many, but spot-on here.

Selection is enough to keep most BAs at least interested. They were out of a couple taps I asked for, but comped me for a round because of that. A fine institution with good location.

A bit of a sports-bar/after-work crowd might detract some.

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.
