Visited 7/14 for a couple of brews before the Cubs game. Very nice location near Wrigley Field with nice sports and pub style wood decor. Numerous TVís to watch the game if you canít get tickets. I didnít have the food @ this location but enjoyed some of the 9 beers they had on tap. Bartenders were very attentive and made sure I tried a couple samples before leaving. A good place to drink real beer before and after the game.

more likely to have bands than the clyborn one, more likely to have a younger, louder crowd. less likely to have a terrific beer selection, and for me, less likely ultimately to be fun.

Almost two years after a very good experience at GI Clybourn, I finally made it to GI Wrigleyville. And, I wish I hadnít. Just about everything about my visit was negative. Parking was atrocioius, granted trying to find a spot at 9:30pm on a Friday night might not be the smartest thing to do. As you approach the front door, you are greeted to blaring music coming out of an exterior speaker. As we entered the 1st impression was that everyone was shouting, either as a result of drunkeness, or more likely that they were trying to be heard over the blaring music. Food: my tuna melt was the worst I had ever had. It tasted gamey, and the fish tasted anything but like tuna. I figured they had run out of tuna and substituted a variety of fishy like substances. My buddy didnít like his "Reuben" (made with turkey pastrami), although when I tasted it, it was such a relief from my tuna melt that I liked it. The Pere Jacques seemed flat, and their new "cask Pale Ale" touted in the menu ran out right before we ordered it. We complained and got a healthy discount off our bill, but this was really not their night. Hopefully they are more on their game during the traditional dinner hour.

Food was standard pub fare with some nice twists, the pepper crusted burger was pretty tasty. Beer was their usuals with some pub only brews. A cask rye stout, and a russian imperial. I was really hoping to catch their IIPA on draft but it was not to be. And I wasnít about to spend $10 on a bottle of it.

Absolutely huge place. Food was decent, tap selection was pretty good, mostly their standard stuff, but a few interesting things. Service was pretty average.

Pretty comparable to the Clybourn location, but they tend to miss out on the rare batch of higher gravity stuff that sometimes shows up at the Clybourn location. Otherwise the two are nearly identical, although itís harder to find parking for this one.

This is my first visit to Goose Island at Wrigleyville, thanks to the 3rd Annual Festival of Wood/Barrel-aged beers. I enjoyed the beer ambiance and the ability to simply sit down at a table and sample beers from the festival as well as Goose Island and eat in relative peace. The service was slow and some of the beers on the menu ran out, but the food selection was good and my fish & chips was excellent. I would definitely come back again for beer and food.

Nice place. Attended the Wood and Barrel Aged Beer Festival there. The decor was beer. Great. Food was excellent and my waitress was both hot and personable. Will go back again to sample more of their beer and food.

My first visit here was to enjoy the Third Annual Festival of Barrel Aged Beers. For this occasion, Goose Island was a perfect venue... easily accessible by train with expansive areas to hold a large crowd and a boatload of brewers. Huge bars, warm ambiance, decent service and a lengthy menu of house brews made it a highly pleasurable experience. (Many thanks and congratulations to those who made the event work.)

There seems to be an ongoing battle here between the Wrigleyville and Clybourn locations. My vote is for Clybourn but I would definitely revisit this location as well. Visit them both and simply enjoy the beer!

Much better than the Clybourn location. The bar is infinitely nicer, less tourists and families, and in a better location. Not bad for a more generic type brewpub.
