    The food and service were very good, prices not bad, but understanding the parking was a nightmare. Would have been nice to know in advance, so here's what you need to know. After circling around a few times, we sent someone into the restaurant for info on parking. It is located in a pretty new, densely packed area, which includes the Aloft hotel, an outlet mall and other restaurants. Parking for the restaurant is in a public garage around the corner, with signs indicating that it is for MB Bank, the hotel, etc. Drive in, go up the ramp on the public parking side and find a spot that is not reserved for the hotel or something else. The restaurant will validate the parking so it's no charge. Pulled pork and burgers were great.

    Park Tavern has a great beer selection so if you're going there for a few drinks with friends it's perfect. We arrived earlier than our reservation and they were great about seating us as soon as a table opened up. The only disappointment was the food. I ordered the turkey burger and it was just okay. I'd say it's a good place for bar food but don't expect much more. Service was a little slow but it was Saturday night and the place was loud and packed. A little hard to have a conversation over the noise.

    Went here for a quick bite to eat before a show at the Allstate Theatre. Had a couple of appetizers, which were excellent. Service was not great, however. Took 10+ minutes for a waiter to come by after we were seated, even though it was early and not crowded at all. Food came quickly, though, so it's not like we were delayed too long. Great food and interesting menu - I'd like to try more.

    had the sliders and i chose 3 different ones, the BBQ pork, brisket and crispy hot chicken. The BBQ pork was a little acidic and vingery for my taste but the hot chicken and brisket were amazing. The brisket had slaw on top which was a perfect match. The fries were also delicious. great food, i would definitely go back.

    Crowded, noisy, service terrible, food was marginal. Ordered a ginger ale got a club soda, several of their signature drinks involve ginger ale and they didn't know their dispenser wasn't working. two of us ordered the same burger, 2 wrong burgers came, brought back the correct burgers only well done- at this point we had 20 min to get to the concert- while they brought a 3rd round of burgers out - hardly worth it. it didn't sit well. The manager was as helpful as could be comping the burgers and gift cards, however won't be going back

    We decided to eat and have cocktails at Park Tavern on the recommendation of a friend. We were about 15 minutes late for our reservation, however when I asked the hostess she still had a table available for us. We were led to a nice table even though we were late and there was quite a wait at the door. Our waitress was prompt, knew the beer selection well and had a great knowledge of the menu. She helped us decide on drinks, brought them very quick and then suggested a few dinner items. Both of our meals were fantastic and we intend to head back there in October when we take a trip to the iFly center.

    PT was a fantastic choice for our group! We had a 7pm reservation and walked right in to our table. From the start we mentioned we weren't in a hurry, as we had 10:30 Garth Brooks tickets, and wanted to take our time, enjoy the food and company! The only issue we did have was locating our waitress when we were ready for our check. Overall a wonderful spot!

    We had a lunch meeting and because I made the reservation on line they wanted to put us at a high top; they said I requested it but I did not. We were 2 females and watched them seat 2 males in a nice comfy booth... this was not a good way to start out. The service was only okay, I got my entree less than 5 minutes after I received my very cold refrigerated salad. The tacos were good but the avocados for the guacamole were not fresh, the jalapeno and bacon mac and cheese was hearty and delicious. This was a good choice for lunch especially on a nice day (they have huge doors that open the entire front of the restaurant) but be sure to request the table you want.

    Reservations are probably necessary most Saturday nights but a reservation was absolutely necessary on a Saturday night that a major concert (Garth Brooks) was taking place at the nearby Allstate Arena. Although this restaurant, and every other one in the complex, was very busy, our group of 6 were seated promptly upon arrival and were served within what I considered a reasonable amount of time. The restaurant is an upscale version of a sports bar and being that it was during a bustling time while we were dining, we didn't have the feeling that our service was lacking, and felt that we were properly attended to. As for food, very good selection and all diners were happy with their choices. The drink selection was very satisfying as well.

    This was a great restaurant! Food was delicious and they had several craft beer choices which is always key. I liked the atmosphere with the inside part and then also having the outside open. Service was great - the server came to check on us the perfect amount of times, not too much and not too little.

    Chosen by proximity to visiting friend's hotel and "Tavern". Website photo of building also gave impression of cozier, laid back bar/restaurant. Did not expect the glitzy interior with level of activity (granted it was a Friday evening). Just caught a little off guard, but food/drink was fine and we were well attended to. No complaints.

    This was my first time visiting this restaurant. The atmosphere was pretty good. The place was very crowded but with our reservation we were seated right away. Our server was friendly and very attentive. They had a good beer selection although they were out of about half of the seasonal beers on the menu. The biggest negative in my mind was the food. I had the pulled pork sandwich. The meat was fatty and greasy and tasted cheap. I was hungry and was headed to a show at Zanies so I ate my meal anyway. I ended up with a bad stomach ache most of the night. I would probably go back for a beer but not sure I'd give the food a second try.

    First time here and while we will come back because of the food, which was great, the design of the place does nothing to deaden the sound, so you have to yell to be heard across the table - not good. Loved the food, the grilled cheese sandwich with fried eggs on it, great twist and flavors.

    One of the worst service experiences I've had in years. We had to repeatedly ask about status on drinks, way too many times on food, dessert was a fiasco. When food arrived everything was cold, desserts were melted. Waiters ran around but seemed clueless. Several patrons rudely walked by swinging bags, knocking chairs, oblivious to people around them. Beautiful night out, great company but definitely applied by lousy meal/service.

    As a party of five, we all had different entrees and everything was delicious. We chose the pretzel and calamari for our appetizer, both were outstanding. Our server was very attentive even though The Park Tavern was very busy. On the way home we all decided we would definitely come back, which speaks volumes about The Park Tavern considering this is an hour drive for all of us.

    I went for dinner with two friends. Worst service I've ever had. At first I felt sorry for our waiter because he had a brace on his hand, so when he poured water, it overflowed, and he never came back to wipe the table I let it slide. But service got progressively worse. He never came to take dirty glasses/dishes away or empty sugar packets - we had to keep asking him. And he never asked us if we wanted more coffee, more to drink, NOTHING! I finally told him - "we're good tippers, but you have to pay attention to us." Why did I even need to say that?? After that, he was no better. The salmon was very good, but the under par service ruined it for me.

    I made reservation at Park Tavern for 7:00 p.m. to have dinner with a friend. We arrived and they told us it would be 5 minutes. We asked if we could get something outside and they said 'no', but then they proceeded to tell us that upstairs was on a first come, first serve bases (Sky Bar). So we went upstairs and found seating. Their beer section is not that great. My friends drink was out of a can, served in a glass. The food was good though. I ordered the Mexibano and I would so order it again. Overall, we had a good time.

    Park Tavern is a real sports bar but caters to families and kids also. Atmosphere is light and air and it has walls that open in warm weather. Our server was really sweet and friendly and tried to be helpful and give suggestions - both very positive. Food was the only issue we had. Menu looks great but food was never as described. Deviled eggs were drenched in siracha sauce making them inedible, spicy gumbo was super spicy (and we love spicy foods) and the pork and beans was overly, sweet and had large inedible pieces of meat in it. Pretzels were good, nice and warm. All in all a good pre-event place and fairly close to the Allstate Arena. Great beer list including several unusual beers.

    Very loud restaurant. More of a bar with above average bar food. Was crowded friday night but seemed understaffed except for the 4 girls at the host desk.. Big beer list yet were out of almost half the beers on the list. Is a good place to watch a game with a lot of TV's Patio is small but at least nice to be outside. Based on the choices out there this place is better than most.

    The food value is good, decent quality and good pricing for the area. However, what made the evening special was our waiter, he was very efficient and personable. We had a table in the open air area which would have been super except for the airplanes. This complex is in the O'Hare flight path. The planes are loud. However, if you need a place to meet and eat in the O'Hare area, I recommend Park Tavern.

    We had a great time here. Food was good though the Foot Long Mac and Cheese was more like an Egg sandwich with some Mac and Cheese than the other way around, overall our food was very good. The Deviled Eggs with Bacon and Wing Sauce were excellent and the portions were nice as well. Service was pleasant and reasonably attentive, TV's were plentiful and lots of beer options for today's Craft Beer fans.

    We waited 15 minutes to order our first drinks then 10 minutes to get the drinks. The food was great but then I had to flag down our waitress which is annoying. Only after I told her we were feeling neglected did she come around more often. The place was not that crowded either! I would not want to go there on a crowded day.

    I picked Park Tavern for dinner with a friend who was visiting from out of town and staying near O'Hare. Park is a nice alternative to the many steakhouses in the Rosemont area and the MB Financial Park has a nice outdoor ambiance, although it's a little manufactured and seems to have popped up out of nowhere. The menu had a lot of options so I knew it'd be a good place to go. Service was great. Downsides were the noise level (turned out not to be an ideal place for catching up and conversation) and I'd say the food was decent, but not amazing. My turkey avocado mango burger was a little bland, though the fries were tasty! We didn't have any of their beers, so probably did miss out on something that might make this place even better!
