How can you not love this place. Perfectly sized, some of the best pizza in the city and always very high quality beers on tap. If their brews donít interest you then there is a top notch selection of other commercial beers available. The white pizza is a must and if youíre not leaving with a growler there is something wrong with you. Avoid the live karaoke night, a little too obnoxious. Test the jukebox as itís one of the best in the city. A must stop for anyone visiting Chicago!!
They have several beers that they make, and then a large number of bottled beers. The pizza is fantastic, and generally pretty cheap. The servers are quick and kind. All in all, definitely a great place to eat and drink.
I LOVE PIECE!!! Ate there last week with family. The pizza was off the hook delicious (white pizza with pepperoni, fresh basil and garlic, with extra garlic) That, and I was able to declare Pieceís Full Frontal Pale Ale my favorite beer of all time. I drank my weight in it that night and brought a growler home too...Service was good, it was packed, but that just added to the overall experience...My favorite place to eat in Chicago...

Live band karaoke. Pretty good pizza. The prettiest girls in the city. Cameltoe EPA. Some smokiní guest taps. An awesome vibe and big floorplan. I loved it. Saturday night has a name in Chicago: Piece.

9th stop on a recent trip to Chicago with my girlfriend.
VIBE: massive "open air" interior has a sizable bar with several flat screens and various dining areas dispersed throughout the restaurant. Two-seater tables off to the left, some communal tables and stools in the middle, and large booths toward the front. Windows were open on our visit, which we enjoyed. Downmarket atmosphere has a sports bar feel to it. Pretty cool vibe.
SERVICE: initially we were seated in the two-person tables section, but it was quite cramped and we could hear everything that the patrons beside us were saying, so the waitress agreed to move us. She was very graceful about it even though we moved to another serverís area. The male waiter wasnít nearly as friendly but he provided timely service and decent recos.
SELECTION: I ordered the Dysfunctionale IPA and Flat Iron Stout and the lady scored a wine of her liking. The Stout was too malt-forward for my tastes; however, the IPA was one of the best that Iíve sampled in a while. House taps span a wide range of styles (Belgian Single, Kolsch, Rye Beer, DIPA) and the guest draughts come from top-notch breweries such as 3Floyds, Bellís, Half Acre, Sierra Nevada, and New Belgium. Although the bottle list is lacking for Chicago, it still includes a few gems like Saxo and Bahnhof Berliner Weisse.
FOOD: we went with a custom pizza (pepperoni, Italian sausage, tomato, spinach, onions) that was absolutely sumptuous. The "large" can feed four people and, at $13, itís dirt cheap. Also had a fresh mixed green salad to start. We couldnít have been happier with our dinner.
OVERALL: Piece is exactly the type of place that my girl and I would regularly visit if we lived in Chi-Town. Theyíre doing the "beer & pizza" thing really well. A choice destination for its award-winning craft brews and flavourful, unpretentious cuisine.
I stopped in for a late lunch on fatherís day. The place was not very busy, which is fine with me. The room is very open with a cool sunken area near the front, and a few private booths to the right. Very casual atmosphere with a cheap chic vibe. I am a pizza snob since I am from the area, and I think the pizza is very good ( I went with the red). The thin crust had a crisp bottom and they use quality ingredients. I was also very impressed with the house beers. 7 out of 8 that I tried were very good and they do have guest taps. They will do small sample glasses of all their beers if you ask, and itís not that expensive. Service on our visit was excellent. If you are a Cheap Trick fan, Rick Neilson has his 5 neck Hamer on display, which I thought was cool as hell.
