The line was too long for me to try the food, i wish you could order at the bar. The bar itself is very cramped, and you have to climb over luggage or cram in almost shoulder to shoulder like thirsty sardines. After all that disappointment and effort, the beers are oretty bad. What kind of style is "Dark Beer’ anyway?
Located just outside gate C-24, this is nothing more than an airport bar. The food is pretty good and the beers a little below average. The prices are what you should expect in an airport.

Didn’t have food, just a beer in the very cramped space near Gate C22. They had 3 Berghoff on, and a bunch of other uninteresting stuff. Forgetable place, though I guess I enjoyed the Berghoff Dark over a Bud Light at a normal bar in the airport.
52 = ★ (Borderline whether this should be on the site)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
A super cramped space that felt somehow even more chaotic than Goose Island’s O’Hare location. I waited a few minutes before I was able to claim a few square inches at the bar. There were 3 Berghoff beers on tap plus a couple of bottles. I also spied a couple of cans from Revolution. The dortmunder I tried wasn’t awful, and (relatively) not bad value at $7.50 for a 16oz pour. Overall, not an essential stop by any means. O’Hare surprisingly seems to not offer much in the way of good beer.
Stopped by real fast during a layover mid June 2015. Small place, packed though. Swervice was lacking some due to the fact there was not many working, but many wanted to do drinking. Didn’t feelt he urge to stay really. Not a place to go looking for, more if you happen to have some time and be really close with your gate.

Pretty crowded. Lady at the bar indicated brews are the same as served at the old brewry restaurant downtown - but it doesn’t brew - contracts out. It’s a good place to get 3 or 4 ticks without going into town! Pretty decent lagers - and maybe the best beer in the whole airport. The best in area has to get a somewhat decent overall! NOTE: That best beer part has changed - Goose Island is now in place just a short distance away!

Nice place for a GREAT sandwich and some decent brews. Hey, their beers ain’t the best but it’s nice to have something other than the typical BMC junk at an airport. The bartender will give you samples if you ask (at least the lady tending bar did that for me). The food is excellent; the sandwiches are made after you order them and the meat is cut right in front of you. I had the bratwurst and my wife had the roast beef. Like I said, the beers aren’t the best but if you want a decent brew or two in O’Hare that isn’t your typical macro crap, stop by and have a sandwich and a beer.

Don’t expect much. Beers are just decent, always the same ones on tap and only a few to choose from, the Huber made Berghoff beers. The food is decent for the airport. Very small and very hard to get a seat here often times.
I am talking about the historic Berghoff located in downtown Chicago. It was a perfect dinging experience, with some delicious food and excellent beer. A great place to have brunch before a day in town.
