Sports bar for convention goers or layovers. Not great but surprising decent beer selection for the type of bar it is.

Decent sized sports bar that is close to a lot of the ORD hotels. Draft list was pretty solid, with at least a few things I hadn’t previously tried available. Had a pretty solid bottle and can selection as well. Food was decent enough, pretty much what I expected. I went here on a Monday, and so they had the MNF game playing on most of the TV with the sound on. Reasonable crowd. Seemed like a lot of travelers making their way over from the nearby hotels. I’d recommend this place for a decent meal with some good beers, especially in this area, where I haven’t seen much in the way of amazing draft lists or anything.

Visited because other reviews eluded to the range of beers available. Indeed, a very nice list, which created another problem because I was driving. Found a Surly which pleased me, becasue it also added Minesota to my list. Only 5 States to go!! Just regular as restaurant, menu and service. When around, please drop in.

Very cheesy sports bar that has a decent selection of beer (had a 22oz bomb of Firestone Double Jack Imperial IPA, yum), however the very young and apparently under-drinking-age-waitresses could barely take a beer order let alone know anything about them. The Tilapia Piccatta was outstanding and a very pleasant suprise.

(Visited 11/2010): Stopped here as it was close enough to O’Hare, yet not one of the bars/restaurants at O’Hare, most of which I am sick of. The place is on Higgins right off I-90 and Mannheim, and there is a decent sized lot in front. The interior pays tribute to the bar’s namesake, with lots of baseball memorabilia. Staying with the sports bar theme, there are lots of TVs around the two-sided bar, and elsewhere in the restaurant area. There are also military flags, jerseys and other assorted bric-a-brac. The beer selection at Shoeless Joe’s is alright, all things considered. There are around 20 taps, with brewers like Goose Island, Dogfish Head, Two Brothers, Stone, Bell’s, Anchor, GLBC and New Belgium represented. A flight of 4 samples is available for $5.50. As for bottles there are over 50, including Two Brothers, Metropolitan, Three Floyds, Lagunitas, DFH, GLBC, Rogue, Victory, New Belgium and more. Service was decent on a weekday late afternoon. The bartenders were happy to chat about the various beers. I did not have any food on this visit. All in all I would definitely visit this place again during that limbo time where it is too long to sit around ORD, and too short to drive out of the way to a beer destination.
