Jerry’s is one of the reasons I miss living in Wicker Park. Great sandwiches, although I have a tough time moving past the Dieterich - who can resist steak, blackened chicken, avocado, aged white cheddar, mayo, and adobo sauce? During the summer, the gazpacho is great too.
The atmosphere is relaxed and more suitable for lunch than dinner, in my mind. Although any time can be a great time to grab a couple of beers and relax though. The service reflects this mentality, however, and most of the time the waitstaff seems to be absent.
The beer list has always been a strong point and seems to be getting even better. Their tap list is always changing. Their bottle list is pretty huge - I think it has gotten to 200 different bottles, although they have a few that seem overpriced.
Overall, the sandwiches are great, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the beer list is better than solid. They charge premium prices and the prices seem to be creeping up, but they definitely deliver a premium product.

Surprised this place isn’t more popular. Good sandwiches (over 100 kinds), well put together tap list (surly furious, avery/rr, dh double crooked, FFF, 90min, and others). Bottle lists had some good brews...though pretty pricey (was happy they had so much JP...ES Bam and Noel). Think this place will probably become more of a destination (especially because Maproom has gone down hill and piece is a crowded mess most of the time).

Unique sandwich shop that can feel kinda cramped even when it’s not full. An impressive beer selection both bottles and tap wise including the occasional nitro and firkin tap.They host quite a few beer-centric events too. Whoever writes up their menus is definitely a beer geek as every sandwich has a suggested beer pairing and the beer menu has tasting notes regarding the beer. The sandwiches are hit or miss - I’ve had some really good ones, and some that I wondered why I ordered it - but I suppose that’s the gambit you take for a place that prides itself on creating "artistic" sandwiches. It’s maybe a bit over-prices, but I’ve done much worse in Chicago as far as paying more for poor quality.

Came here with my girl for lunch and drinks in July 2011.
VIBE: we sat on the patio, which had a nice view of the streetscape. Generous spacing between tables offered some privacy for patrons. Crowd was kinda yuppyish (lots of people tapping away on their smart phones), but thankfully they kept to themselves.
SERVICE: our server was righteous with a big chip on his shoulder. He failed to explain that you HAVE to order side dishes with your sandwich, and neglected to say where those sides were located on the menu. He did a decent job of describing the hoppy beers on tap and made great food recommendations; however, when I was paying our bill, he "forgot" to bring the change back to the table, so I decided not to leave a tip.
SELECTION: the draught lineup was one of the best that I encountered in Chicago. Ridiculous taps such as Firestone Walker Red Nectar, Port Mongo Double IPA, Bruery Orchard Wit, Goose Island Fleur, and Rogue John John Dead Guy cluttered the menu. Bottle list included top notch offerings from Anderson Valley, Half Acre, and Left Hand, as well as most of the world class American IPAs. I ordered a 3Floyds Alpha King Pale Ale, which I hadn’t tried before coming here. My girlfriend really enjoyed her cocktail.
FOOD: I had the Cuban with barbecue beans and mac & cheese while the lady went for a Grilled Chicken Caesar. The sandwiches and sides were outrageously good (not to mention filling!) and the prices were fair.
OVERALL: it’s unfortunate that our waiter was so careless since I would’ve otherwise rated this place in the 90s. Jerry’s is a prime destination for its tasty food and excellent craft beer, but the service could definitely improve.

Stopped in for lunch with my brother and one of his friends. Really nice on the inside, but we ate on their patio seating out front. 20 or so taps, which were all really solid. They had Two Brother’s Bare Tree on cask which was nice to see. Tons of sandwiches. Almost overwhelming there were so many choices. Had a tuna sandwich that was awesome. 3 sandwiches and 3 beers for $51 wasn’t too bad for the city. My only real gripe with this place was the service. The bartender was really cool, but our waiter was absent the majority of the time and the place was pretty much dead on a Tuesday at 1pm. Would go back for sure. Not a bad place to bring the kids either. I would say half of the tables had children

Solid sandwiches with a nice rotating selection. A good number of bottles as well. Overall haven’t been to impressed with the sandwiches and service can be slow. Prices are pretty good.

Very cool little spot in the Division corridor. High quality tap list, fresh. A bit overwhelming menu with ~100+ sandwiches. High quality ingredients go into the burger and this place is like straight up restaurant. Very interesting, though wish it was a little more raucous...

I picked Jerry’s out of every restaurant in Chicago to visit. Friends from the UK had came to visit, and with all North American beers, I figured this was the place to show our stuff. My feelings are mixed. The place was nice and rather small; a big screen near the bar and a dining area pretty much filled out the restaurant. Some top bottles on display, they have beers from many top American breweries-their full beer list is on their website and represents nearly every major beer style. Service was pretty good; our waiter recommended some beers that my friends enjoyed (I picked my own). Our food and drinks were to us quickly, but... two food orders were wrong. The problem was fixed promptly but noted. As I said above, a nice selection of top American brews, but I must add that appropriate glassware was nowhere to be seen. A tumbler for most beers and a weizen-like glass for all the rest. Annoying. Our food was decent; nothing too noteworthy. Five of us (with child) ate and drank for 90 dollars and had some top quality beers, so I thought the value was good, especially in a big city where markups are the norm. Still, some of the beers (Jolly Pumpkin, etc.) seemed much more steep than they should. Overall, a good beer place that has room to improve on a few fronts.

This is a great place for food, beer not so much. Their list looks great but half the time I order they are out of what is listed. Grab lunch here but head to Small Bar for a drink.
