Stopped in with Adam Jackson on Thanksgiving Day. No food was offered on the holiday so canít comment on the kitchen (this did not bother us) Even with the holiday the place got a bit busy. So I can only imagine how packed it can get. And it really isnít a large space at all. If in the area, I would stop in during an off hour. Lots of beer porn hanging on the walls. And the bartender was a really nice lady that was very pleasant and talkative. The tap selection and bottle list is excellent, and the prices are somewhat average for a large city. (Perhaps on the high side) I would revisit this place if I ever make it back to Chicago, of course not during peak hours because Iím not a fan of fighting people to get a beer.

This place is beer heaven with good food. The tap selection is second to none, they always have Zombie Dust on tap!!! Plus at least another 60 beers. The beer prices are cheap, usually six bucks for a real pint of good beer. The food is great and reasonable. Try the chicken & waffle sandwich. Beer.

Had tow personal reasons for liking the place - had met the owner in Brussels and mostly that my son accompanied me there (and is only two blocks from his place. No idea how it compares to any other Chicago beer bar, but I really enjoyed the selection. Beers from Illinois, Cali, Belgium, etc. Delicious time was had.

Easy to find location. Busy, so son and I sat at bar. Friendly staff with good positive response to short pours to rate. Good selection. After dinner stop, so we did not try food. Is the second best bar so far in Chicago and well worth a visit.

Amazing. If I could write a 1 word review I would. Excellent selection, great food, great crowd. The only downside is that so many people like to go here.

This was my first stop on my trip to Chicago. Got there right when it opened on a Saturday. Was there for a couple of hours for lunch and drinks and it never got super crowded. Great selection on draft of alot of Belgians and locals. Tons of Belgian and Belgian-style bottles. Staff was terrific. They chatted with me about lots of the local beers I hadnít tried. They went out of their recommend to me stuff I might enjoy trying. Food was pretty tasty. Overall, I really enjoyed my expereince and Hopleaf. Great selection, fair prices and great staff.

I canít knock the beer list here - itís pretty incredible. 70+ including a focus on Belgians and a nice selection of craft beer and some reserve bottles. Although the staff was friendly, the service was slow when it was busy...waited a long time to take our beer order. I probably would have had more beer if they had taken the orders more quickly. I didnít find the food all that great, other than the excellent aioli.

Hopleaf is one of the great beer bars of the US. Fantastic selection, with an emphasis on Belgians. The staff are knowledgeable and will help you find your beer, if youíre in doubt. But get there early, if you can. They also have an amazing menu, with excellent food. The Duck Reuben is delicious, as is the Nueske Ham sandwich. But the stand-out are the mussels. Be sure to get the Belgian-style and ask for extra bread, because you will want to sop up every last bit of the delicious broth. Mussels also come with a huge cone of tasty frites. The crowd is mixed, and very friendly. I have never had a bad time at Hopleaf.
