Foursquare Tips

  • While the Lodge is beer-heavy, featuring a rotating selection of German and Belgian craft brews, meads and Trappist ales, its Dark and Stormy cocktail is one of the best in or outside the city.
  • Best draft house in Chicago-land.
  • Great authentic German fare.
  • My favorite thing on the menu (besides the beer, of course) is the Weiner Schnitzel ala Holstein.
  • Duck duck duck!
  • If debating which sausage order, just stop and order the thuringer. It's the best of the bunch. The weinerschitzel is da bomb.
  • Beer selection is amazing. Especially the rare europeans. Great food and atmosphere, too.
  • Try the Triple Schnitzel Platter - German spinach is great with bacon and a little cream, schnitzel are all just awesome, spaetzle is also very good (via @Foodspotting)
  • Try the Liver Dumpling Soup - The dumpling is made of liver, kind of firm pate in a nice full flavor broth (via @Foodspotting)
  • We come for the beer and stay for the food! Pretzel basket and wurst app is awesome with a pour from their ever-changing draft list. The spatzle soup in great!
  • Phenomenal craft beer selection....
  • The beer list is one of the best. Period. Try a bunch by ordering sample sizes - they will do that for almost anything on tap.
  • With such a tremendous selection, it's hard to pick just one (or two or three). Remember that you can order a 5oz sampler of just about any of their beers - try more in a single visit!
  • Tyler is awesome at the bar & Goldschlager goes down so well! Shaken, not stirred
  • Surly Darkness!
  • Mmmmm beeeeerrrrrrr! this is hands down one of the best places for beer lovers! and the fooood rocks!!! sooo good
  • OMG best German food in the Chicago area. Potato pancakes, awesome. Schnitzels, great!
  • Potato dumplings for sure.
  • The German food is legit!
  • They have a ton of great beers on top (and bottles/cans too). The Scotch Egg & Duck Wings appetizers were both interesting & pretty good. They have a great selection of German food.
