  • DON'T GO THERE. We waited over thirty minutes, drinks ordered never came. Were told by waiters that we probably shouldn't wait up for our drinks. Many other tables were waiting as well.
  • Very good lobster roll and decent selection of microbrews
  • Hanging with the Chaput!
  • Great BBQ, craft beer, and impressive bar selection. Good music and friendly vibe. 4 Stars!
  • I got the turkey burger and replaced the fries with roasted cauliflower - and I'd do it again!
  • Good service for a crowd of 15 thirsty sales people.
  • Huge space with a meh crowd. Run-of-the-mill food and drink options.
  • NOT the fish and chips
  • Awesome atmosphere
  • The seating takes forever
  • Rude staff. Was told I had to join table tab & could not even pay per drink in cash (no tab). Was then told if I went to the bar to get drinks I was "screwing waiter out if a tip." Also overpriced.
  • Rude staff, overpriced. Would not let me pay with cash per drink at our table. Insisted we can only have "one tab" no pay as you go. Server said ordering drinks from bar would "screw him out of a tip"
  • Good beer selection, fast service, lively atmosphere
  • The food was great but service was bad. Took 20 minutes to get a side of blue cheese when it was requested with the rest of the food. Everyone was done before she got started.
  • The service was very quick on a Saturday night. Their bbq brisket plate is the best. Do use the spicy bbq sauce on it.
  • Todo muy bueno la hamburgesa con tocino excelente
  • Fish tacos are good. Had them as a,replacement for the pulled pork I sent back. Jeff had the Lake White fish and that was good.
  • Service was inattentive. DON'T get the pulled pork! No sauce, no bun, until I asked. 2 sauces that were aweful. Tiny portion of coleslaw with NO flavor. Server forgot to remove entree from check.
  • They won't split checks here. BBQ focused menu. Beers are a bit expensive but it's the Loop so what can you do?
  • Haven't had anything I didn't like, but haven't been for dinner.
