  • "Some of my family was visiting from out of state and asked to go to a "real Chicago" bar/restaurant....and they really enjoyed it...great bar and the place is gorgeous. New menu is excellent."

  • "Nice atmosphere. Not too loud, despite the ridiculous number of TVs. Great beer list and really good food. Our server was very nice and just the right amount of attentive."

  • "I like the look and feel of this place, and they have a large beer selection. Wonderful tv's. I had the pulled pork and I thought it was pretty good, and the pretzel bites which were also tasty. But every time I eat here, I feel like the food sits like a lead weight. I keep trying wanting to like it, but I never feel good afterwards. I would only recommend it for drinks unless you have a cast iron stomach."

  • "Great place to watch a weekend game with friends while enjoying brunch with an excellent booze selection."

  • "Outstanding beer list including beer that is not readily available elsewhere. Also, the signature burger itself is destination dining."

  • "we had enjoyed one of their sister restaurants, and Pour House didn't disappoint."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "So the food here was fantastic - basically slightly higher end bar food - which paired perfectly with the huge beer selection. We also loved that you could get 6 oz beers, so we were able to try quite a few different beers each. The service at this restaurant is definitely where the ball was dropped though, our waiter didn't come around very often at all - and when he finally did come around to ask if we needed another beer, he also asked if we were ready to order our food even though we had ordered already 20 minutes before that. He said 'oh that's right' and then it was another 20+ minutes until our food came - so obviously he had completely forgotten to put it in and didn't even apologize for it. I would still give it another chance."

  • "Five of us dined at Old Town Pour House on a Thursday night. Yes, they have alot of beers. Yes, it looks like a good place for groups to meet up. But, our waitress was very impatient with us and our food was all overcooked."

  • "Yes. it's a sports bar, but the food stands out as well. From lobster corn dogs to fried pickle chips to duck club sandwiches to ahi tuna to hamburgers and salads, the selection was fun and delicious. The atmosphere is fun as well and everyone has a good time. Good service and good prices. A huge array of draft beers and select wines. Definitely a place to frequent!"

  • "My husband and I were on our way to see a Second City show and decided to get dinner here beforehand. Great beer selection, really good food, and great service made for an awesome night. Cameron was our server and she was attentive and personable. She knew the beers really well and her recommendations were very well received. The food is upscale pub food done well. My compliments to the kitchen."

  • "Loved atmosphere, high ceilings, windows, comfy stools and enjoyed the gourmet twists on bar food! Had special appetizer with sweet potato puffs, gruyere and not sure what else but we all loved and devoured it! Very original! All our food was great, but Mac and cheese with truffles was the best! Only negative was that all tables seated were next to each other, even when tables turned, tho most other tables in front area were empty. Would have been nicer to be spread out bit more since restsurant was less than half full....we were there early and it was brutally cold night!"
