First time here and was great
First time here and was great to be able to have dinner here before seeing a concert. Our food was pretty good (fish and chips and chicken & mashed potatoes). We'd come back!

Some issues with service.
Some issues with service. Beer did not arrive until after we got our entree. Brought cup, not bowl of soup, although this was replaced. Waitress was friendly (and apologetic).

We have been here many times
We have been here many times and the food is always good. Nothing fancy but more than pub food with some healthy options. One of the best best in this area, which has limited choices, and near some of the theaters as well as being adjacent to the Mayne Stage. When we come for theater and music in Rogers Park, we come here for good eats.

Good local restaurant
Stopped at One Act before the play Last Fall. Service was attentive and friendly. Fun place to watch the interesting people.
Food was good and served hot. We shared several appetizers all very good. Main dishes including a burger, flank steak sandwich and fish & chips all solid. We would return when in the neighborhood.

Great place to grab a bite before a Mayne Stage event. Really busy on this Friday evening, but service was timely and friendly. Pub food menu is a bit limited, but all our selections were great, especially the Walleye Fish 'n Chips

There were 8 or 9 of us going to the performance at The Mayne Stage, so a big heavy meal was not in the cards. Act One, was
just the perfect place for a wonderful salad and delicious sandwich. A few minor glitches, but they were corrected, and we all
enjoyed our dinners.

We went to Act One for lunch
We went to Act One for lunch so not at all sure how it changes at night but can assume quite a bit. Friendly place, good food, service just good, not great, convenient location. I'd go back again if I'm in that neighborhood, and I'd sit outside if the weather permitted.

Really fun place
The service, food, bar and live music makes this place exceptional.

Free entertainment up front in Pub
We heard the Kelson Twins, a duo of youthful (teen) acoustic guitarist and singers who write much of their own stuff. They harmonized beautifully.
Great selection of craft beers (on tap and in containers); very good range of Belgian brews.
Surprisingly good food — walleye fish and chips with vinegar salt on the fries; great fennel & sausage thin flatbread appetizer; superb scratch-made dark chocolate pudding. but oldish coffee.

Perfect Date Night
I took my husband to Act One/Mayne Stage for his birthday. We had never been to either so it was a shot in the dark. We were pleasantly surprised. The food menu had just enough to chose from and there's something for everyone. They have awesome beers on tap and bottled as well as a great wine list. All of the food was delish and the service was friendly and prompt. It wasn't overly crowded or loud. I'd definitely go back and I highly recommend it for both dinner and a show. The only thing I didn't like was trying to find parking. But, that's not the fault of the restaurant.

Friendly staff. Ready with our reservation even though I called saying we'd be 15 min late. Were able to handle a short turn around for us to get to a play.
