    Hutch is a great neighborhood find. The bar is separate from the restaurant so the noise level is down. It would also be nice to eat in the bar. The food was excellent. Our server was wonderful and made good suggestions.

    We have become regulars at Hutch because it does everything so right. Firstly, the atmosphere is comfortable, accessible and inviting. Secondly, the food is consistently enjoyable. The menu is updated seasonally and I think I've tried just about everything! (Had the Panko Crusted Chicken last night...DELICIOUS!) Thirdly, and most importantly, the people at Hutch are some of the friendliest hospitality professionals I've encountered while dining in Chicago. Management on down; everyone is working together seamlessly to ensure your experience is top notch. Lindsey the GM is awesome. Jeneva (our fav!) is sunny and hilarious! Marvin, Ally...the list goes on and on. Go for the food, stay for the awesome people. Thanks Hutch!!

    Went for an early business dinner that did not go well because this place was used as a playground for a couple of moms with 6 very poorly behaved brats. Would dine here again, but never between 5 and 6:30 PM!

    Discovered Hutch with a good friend about 7 months ago. First time was amazing food and cocktails (blood orange margarita) were awesome.Take advantage of the weekly deals, took my mom there for mothers day...the waitress gave me a $10 coupon not necessary but very great service, and just planned a friend surprise get together there. When I meet with my friend who I discovered Hutch with 7 months ago we usual decide to go back here. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT FOR ANY Occasion..please bring back the bacon brussell sprouts soon!

    We had 11 in our party, many from out of town, so I wanted to go some place with a wide range of options. Well, I waited until the last minute to make the reservation, but I was still able to get a table, which was amazing in and of itself. We probably had to wait 10-15 minutes for our table, but we were a large party and it was 8 PM on a Friday night, so I wasn't really bothered by it. That being said, the staff apologized to us profusely, and when we were seated they sent out a ton of amazing appetizers on the house- a charcuterie board, bean spread and artichoke hearts- all amazing. All 11 of us loved out meals, which included the panko crusted chicken, BBQ salmon, blackened tilapia sandwich and the French dip. We'll definitely be back!

    I went with a group of 5 friends and we decided to order appetizers aplenty from the menu. Everything was VERY tasty, and very share-able. We tried the Hutch and Green salad -- fresh, tasty, and both were unique. The shrimp we ordered were large and tasty. The flatbread was thin, crispy and flavourful. The cutting board, presented very well, and had a lot of fun flavors to mix and match. Also, our waitress Emily was AMAZING. She has an excellent smile, makes great recommendations, and is knowledgable and attentive. A great experience.

    We were going to Stage 773 and wanted to try a neighborhood restaurant before the show. There were 5 of us - we ordered an assortment of beers and the special cucumber cocktail (mostly ice although it was flavorful). We also shared the artichoke heart appetizer (4 pcs - more breading than necessary) and the white bean dip which was very tasty - but the marinated veggie that accompanied it tasted very vinegary. All entrees were just ok. Our bill was about $160.00 including tip.

    I always pass by Hutch when I run through the neighborhood, and I'm so glad I finally decided to dine there. The BBQ chicken flatbread was absolutely delicious, as was the goat cheese salad. The drinks and appetizers (I can only speak to the artichoke fritters) were fairly small given the price, but the quality was on point.

    Only ate Brunch so can not comment on dinner menu. Excellent brunch menu and love that Hutch takes reservations. VERY loud when the restaurant is full of people. Service could have been better. It took a while to have our drink orders taken and then we were never offered refills. Food service was timely once our orders were taken.

    I was really pleased with the service, food and price for a Sunday brunch at Hutch. Even though the place was packed, our server was very attentive and super friendly. The food was delivered promptly - a lot sooner than I expected for how busy it was! And it was so good, I got the "Tot-chos" and my boyfriend got the Bacon Sausage corn waffles. I highly recommend both. The best part is - a carafe of mimosas is only $8! ($2 for single mimosa) Can't beat that price anywhere in the city.

    Food was bland and a little boring. Waitress recited the same lines to us and all tables near us and sounded like a recording. The table we were put at was outside but was jammed in a corner and we had very little room. It was an unpleasant experience all around and I will not be back.

    The food left a lasting impression with all 4 of us! The Ribs were done with a secret sauce that was not to tangy or too sweet, they fell off the bone nd melted in my mouth!-I keep thinking about them! Cant wait to go back yum! The Salmon had a light flavoring on it and complimented the fish w/o overpowering it! I don't like fish and I loved this fish!! We had skillet shrimp and skillet corn bread for apps and could not get enough of them. The menu has something for everyone and even vegetarians,and wont break the bank! Priced well an A+experience and FUN!! We all will be going back!

    So glad I finally made it to Hutch after passing by here almost daily for months. My friend and I decided to share a bunch of things and went with the mussels, barbecue chicken flatbread, and drunken shrimp. Everything was yummy and I am hoping to come back here for brunch soon. Definitely worth checking out!

    Expected much better than we received. Went to Hutch after Cubs' game and got an outside table. Service was generally good, but the food was just OK. I ordered my rib eye medium rare, and it was well done. Nothing exceptional in the other 2 meals ordered. Probably won't return because it's a little pricey with just average food preparation.

    My friends and I randomly selected Hutch as a gathering spot for dinner, based on location. We were not disappointed, as our food was delicious and the cocktails were nice and strong. We ordered the truffle fries as an app and they were phenomenal :) I highly recommend my dish, the Panko crusted chicken. I will definitely suggest Hutch to other friends.

    Hutch is a nice neighborhood American food place. Some outside tables, lots of Windows. Small, small bar area. The scallops were good but the "French dip" sandwich was not. Beef was tough, sliced too thick and had a very "old" taste to it. Pick something else if you go. Service was friendly.

    I'm in town for a month long Exec Ed. program at NU. Formally I resided in Hyde Park. A few of my cohorts and family from TX asked for my "foodie" expertise. I immediately decided they needed to experience the affordable and amazing food. 3/7 people ordered the chicken and waffles. They each melted when they took their first bit. I ordered the smoked salmon flatbread and was satisfied. Don't forget the mimosas. They have seasonal flavors and a blood orange. Beware of the noise level. People are enjoying themselves, loudly!!!!

    Had dinner there tonight, first time, and it was fantastic. We both had the Blood Orange Margarita's which were great. I had the scallops, perfectly seared and topped with crispy leeks which were perfect. My partner had the ribs and started off by saying the fries were the best he'd ever had and I tried them. I had to agree. He let me try the ribs and, oh my Lord, that barbecue sauce was amazing. There was an interesting sweetness (almost like peaches) when you first tasted it and then the spice came afterwards. And they were cooked perfectly. The decor in the place is very cozy and comfortable and the transformation is impressive. The staff was incredibly friendly and professional. We can't wait to go back!

    So, the few good things first... love the $15 bottomless mimosas (providing you can get your server to refill them). Decor is quite nice and the staff friendly enough. My reservation was honored on time. The two GLARING areas of opportunity are: 1) The quality of the food (and presentation if I were being picky) - bland, boring and without any redeeming qualities. 2) The wait... for EVERYTHING.

    I haven't been to hutch for lunch or dinner, but I've been for brunch twice and each time I got the chilaquiles - they are delicious! They are much better than a few other places around the city. The monkey bread was a bit dry the first time I went, but the second time it was MUCH better. I would definitely recommend this place for brunch. I made a reservation, but when I went without a reservation it was a 30-40min wait.

    First time here, what a disappointment. I ordered a steak med. rare. It came beyond well done. I would have sent it back but she took our orders our waitress completely disappeared. Bus staff brought the food out and we didn't see our server again until an hour and a half after we initially placed our order. And we had to ask the bus staff to get her then. The rest of my table's food was no better. I will not be going back to Hutch and I will be advising everyone I know to avoid the place.

    Second time here and we enjoyed all of our meals, once again. The only thing that was only so-so was the tuna appetizer, which was a little cold in the middle (ok to be rare, but cold?!) Was very surprised that the scallops were outstanding! I expected them to be good, but not great. The bean burger and the french dip were also very good and i loved my hutch salad.
