Diner Reviews
  • "Surprised my partner with a trip here for our anniversary as a change from the normal fancy-schmancy. Food was decent pub food as expected. We had the stilton and cast iron burgers. The stilton is extra spicy from a little too much black pepper and something we wouldn't choose again. We went for the beer and got to enjoy 4 5oz pours of our choosing which was fun. All and all, it was ok. Average pub with large selection of GI beers. Beware of the pretzels though. They are tasty but HUGE. We ordered two as a starter thinking they'd be smaller and filled up too quickly!"

  • "Had a nice quick early dinner before going to a nearby live theatre. Nothing special, pub food, good beer and service was perfect for what we needed. Not sure we would go again just to eat, if you have a large group of people, think this would be a good spot to be loud and have some fun."

  • "It is still a brewery, the menu is too "chefy". There was not one chicken item on your menu??? The only fish you had was walleye, and you only had 1 soup of the day. While they're is nothing wrong with elevating your menu, it was a little out of place in a brewery. At least offer variety if you go "chefy". There were tons of kids there, I have a hard time believing everyone likes only being able to eat carrot corriander soup, and that no one would like chicken. Too many other restaurants in Chicago to go back, and your beer can be bought in the store."

  • "We were a group of 6 for a late lunch on a Sat. Our lunch was good; we had poutine, chili, and burgers. Our server was cold bothered, & difficult to hear. I asked him to repeat the soup 3 times & he seemed annoyed. Also i asked for crackers with my chili which they didn't have so he offered grilled bread for $2. I accepted but the bread never showed. When the bill came we had $2 charges for all of the sides.When politely questioned our sever said that he told us there was an up charge for certain sides. Not one of us heard him say that! We also let him know that the bread never came. He said he pulled it because the kitchen was slow. He never told me that he pulled it! Also gratuity was included which could explain the poor service."

  • "Stayed in Downtown Chicago, Goose Island is a short walk off the Red Line. Warm atmosphere, waitstaff was very friendly and knowledgeable of food and beer. She easily suggested several options based in likes and dislikes. Reasonable price."

  • "We brought a visiting couple to Goose Island before attending a show at the Royal George theater nearby. Good parking and a wide selection of their beers were the primary reasons, but we found the pub style food to be pretty good also - especially enjoyed the burger with goat cheese and spinach. The place was pretty empty mid-day on Sunday, but I expect it gets pretty lively later at night."

  • "I had been at Goose Island many times and the food was great. When we went Friday evening, the food was terrible. Overcooked chicken wings, Garlic Soup that tasted like Cream of Library Paste and an inedible hamburger. Our server was very good. The meal would have been a complete bust without him. I always bring out of town guests there. It will be a long time before I do that again."

  • "I had invited a good friend out on date to sample the beers and food. We enjoyed ourselves and the bartenders are always happy to make my time a fun one."

  • "Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable regarding the expansive beer listing. He provided samples without our even asking. The pulled pork sandwich was delicious and plentiful. We found it to be a comfortable and friendly place even though we were visiting from New York."

  • "We came because we love beer but found the food to be just terrific! Enjoyed the fried artichokes and mussels tremendously. Waitress was excellent but beer service was slow. Maybe they need more help behind the bar?"
