I have been living in the South suburbs of Chicago for over 10 years now. And only in the last 4 years have I been turned on to craft Beer. And that was because of Tribes Alehouse! I am writing this review for Mokena and Tinley because I believe them to be the same in all aspects except for sheer size. I have been an avid fan and supporter of the Tribes and tell all of my friends that this is the best place for craft Beer - bar none - in all of Chicagoland. They have 42 handles of awesomeness in Mokena and 54 tappers in Tinley Park. They are pretty much the only place to be able to get Three Floyds products consistently. Great events, service, atmosphere, food and beer!
Great place to hang out, get some good food and great selection of beer. Our shop did most of the tables for both the restaurants, and so I get run across quite a few people that have visited one of the Tribes and they always have nothing but good things to say. Its definitely worth checking out, you wont be disappointed.
Hands down best beer bar in the Cook County suburbs great rotating beer selection would even put it up with the best Chicago beer bars.I love The Tribes in Mokena which is the best south of I 80 and Tinley Park Tribes has even more to offer meaning seating and a few more beers on tap.Let me start with the beer list 54 of the best beers available and the selection changes daily so I know you won’t get bored here.The staff if very knowledgable in all of these beers just ask them also very friendly.The food is outstanding and the menu changes seasonally they also have some great events check out oyster fest did I mention that both locations share the same menu so you can’t go wrong with either location although both have different beer lists which is cool because you can explore both locations and be surprised with how awesome 100 draft selections between both locations is. Back to the food I urge you to try the Poutines and grab a filet cause Tribes has great steaks also the burgers are outstanding too get a bison burger you won’t regret it.Now for the ambiance Tribes Tinley is huge compared to Mokena it has an awesome patio you want a place to bring a group of friends this is the place although it can get pretty crowded just get your name in with hostess and head up to the bar grab a list and enjoy one of the best beer lists in the state very good descriptions of beers and if that doesn’t help just ask the bartenders they are glad to help you out.Overall one of my favorite places in Illinois to enjoy craft beer and food so check it out you won’t regret it.Your welcome!!!
I thought it would be tough to top the Mokena location but....Tinley has exceeded my expectations! The outdoor patio/garden area makes you forget that you are in a strip mall in the suburbs. The assortment of unique food offerings as well as the plethora of craft beer choices makes this place unbeatable when it comes to bars/restaurants in the south suburbs! The fun, interactive events that are offered are above the rest in the area & are well-managed and professionally executed. This location is especially great for a group/family gathering!
Whenever I’m on the south side, I make it a point to stop by Tribes. In my mind, it’s the ONLY place for miles and miles that I know will have a consistently killer beer list. Add to this their special/rare weeknight tappings, friendly and knowledgeable staff, delicious food selection and this summer’s inaugural Beer Fest, and you’ve found yourself a new favorite watering hole. The original Mokena location delivers the same experience. I’m sure glad my parents live only a few blocks away...always gives me an excuse to stop in. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner and learning more about how the bar got started - ready my full review at http://www.pourmanbeer.com/tribes/.
Awesome place in the south suburbs. Love the Mokena location but it is hard to beat the roominess at the Tinley location. Great selection of beer and the food is stellar. Prices are good considering the quality of the food and beer offerings. Just a great place to kick back and enjoy a beer or two and a very satisfying meal. This is a definite must try!
Love this place. Great selection on the tap and menu. Bartenders and servers are so nice! Food seems expensive but worth it. They also have samplers for beer so you can try the flavor before ordering a large beverage. They turned me on to so many new beers :)
