I stopped by here a while back for an afternoon pint on the way to Three Floyds. The beer is good but not at all excellent--solid brewpub fair, nothing really interesting. Their food is the same, pretty much standard pub eats. It’s located in a particularly welltodo burb and you can tell by the clentele that these people have money. You can’t go wrong with straightforeward food and beer but I’m not going out of my way to get there from Chicago.
Was there on noon 2013-11. We add breakfast at Tree Floyds, so the bar was high. First the staff couldn’t explain the beer style on the menu. 1 beer out of 5 was infected. We learned days after our visit that the Master Brewer had left the place. That explain everything. But I also learn lately that he’s back. So I will have to pass by to give it another try...
Always busy crowd, beers are varied and tasty, so is food. Staff changes somewhat, as in the Brewers and bartenders. their Bourbon aged beers are worth the wait.
Parking is slightly tricky depend time of day.
Une grand salle à mi-chemin entre le glamour et le resto familial. Une section plus pub anglais près de l’entrée est là pour fuir le brouhaha. La sélection est décente, la bouffe moins. C’est possible de partir avec des bouteilles et si vous êtes chanceux, quelques versions BA sont franchement bien exécutées.
Bar and restaurant in an old railroad station in a great little city square area. Really friendly staff and we sat right at the bar. Beer was fantastic, food was above average. I would definitely try again.
A solid brewpub in Flossmoor, just outside of Chicago. It is a fairly spacious place. There are several TVs in the pub area. The beer list is pretty lengthy, at least 10 on tap, with about 5 regulars and probably like 8 seasonals, including some interesting beers such as a double rye IPA, 2 barrel aged beers, etc. The beers were good, but I’m not sure I’d say they were "world class". There is bottled beer too. The food is above average pub fare. I had a ridiculously large chicken salad (that was quite good). Overall, a good but forgettable place. I think they are still living on their reputation from ~6 years ago, but the beers I had weren’t quite at that level. Good variety though.
A converted train station, this big bar with a nice dining area is refreshingly fun without being tacky. Service was very good and efficient. Food was hearty and relatively cheap. Huge beer selection, with most above average. A great stop that is easy, pleasant and has lots of room.
Stopped in after 3F. Much quieter atmosphere, with a pretty cool bar and restaurant in an old train station. Brewing equipment, including a lot of copper, on display through glass. They were running 14 taps when I was there, all their own beers, including one sour and a couple of barrel aged goodies in addition to their regulars. Service was really nice, although the bartender kept calling me sweetie, and at one point I am sure she called me "love" :). Roll your own taster flights of any five of their beers in four ounce pours was kind of a nice treat. Wings were pretty good (after the rating was completed). All in all a fun place that I wish was closer to home.
Hard place to find anything ad to say. Beer is great and interesting. Definitely a premier brewpub nationally for beers alone. Atmosphere is exactly what you’d expect in this area: a comfortable upperclass suburban casual dining joint. Food is good high class american pub fare. I can’t really imagine a scenario where someone wasn’t happy they visited.
