Stopped by here in late October ’11. Place was a blessing as it was almost 11:00 and it was either here or fast food. Typical Old Chicago - good place for an out of towner to pick up a rating or two. Had about 15 or 20 local taps - some of them seem to rotate with the seasons. Prices are kind of high - $4.99 for a pint in most cases. Food is good and filling like most Old Chicago’s. Not worth going out of your way for - but a good standby for a late night dinner stop for weary travelers. Thumping music could be turned down a little bit (Get off my lawn!).

If you are looking for a nice beer bar go somewhere else. If you are interested in kids parties and sports on TV, accompanied with a good beer, you may find this chain restaurant acceptable. They offer around 15 taps of local micros as well as some good bottles from around the country. The rest of the beer selection is not worth mentioning. I am sure he overattentive kid waiter followed company policy when he served a perfectly good porter in a super cold bottle and a frosted mug. Would you like some icecubes in your wine, sir?

Typical Old Chicago full of sports and beer decor. Service was fast and courteous at the bar. Typical Old Chicago beer selection lots of choices but nothing that stands out. Pizza is great. Not a bad deal but nothing to go out of the way for.

looks, smells, tastes, feels and hears like every other godawful old chicago on the planet. pro tip: from the freeway go south until you get to the light, then take a left and enter the strip-mall complex where this old chicago exists, then go spend your money at superior liquor and go home. ಠ_ಠ
