They must have been short
They must have been short handed or something because the server was taking a long time to help our table and check back on us. Otherwise, food was good and atmosphere was nice.

Tried open table for the first
Tried open table for the first time last Saturday night and settled on Blokes and Birds. The four of us arrived and were seated promptly. Water with a hint cucumber which was a pretty nice start to our meal. We split a Brussel sprout w bacon appetizer and it we devoured it. For main course to of us had the sparerib sandwich which was excellent. A very nice combination of flavors from the aoili (sp), onion strings, and Havarti cheese. Hank enjoyed his chicken dish (by enjoyed I thought Hank was going to actually lick the plate clean). The pork fat potato side was unusually tasty for a potato My wife liked her chicken curry with a glass of a Chilean Malbec. The combination worked very well together. Service was outstanding. (A+)

Good food, good times. Service
Good food, good times. Service a little slow, but they did give us a free round after spilling a round on me!
All around would recommend for a night out, and great live music.

I went with three friends to a Sunday Brunch. Everything was great! Friendly, attentive staff. The mimosas were fresh and had berries in the bottom of the glass which was very refreshing. All four of our entrees were great!

Last minute table for 10
We had a large last minute group of 10 and they were able to accomodate us graciously at a large harvest table! The food was top notch, great craft beers and specialty cocktails, plus Live music! We heard rumors of kareoke downstairs but missed the window and found it pretty crowded by 10:30. We'll definitly have to go back another time for kareoke. Great service and atmosphere as well!

Great Place for Brunch!
My friend and I had brunch here before the Cubs game and it was great food! The drinks complimented the brunch entrees very well and the brunch menu offered a wide-variety of options, both savory and sweet, sure to please anyone! I haven't been here for the dinner menu, but brunch most certainly did not disappoint!

Good Food, Great Beer List
The beer list here is pretty great. They had several craft selections to choose from, and all of them were good picks. I had the shepherd's pie for dinner, and it was one of the best versions of this dish I've ever had. Thick, savory gravy - salty, but not overwhelmingly so, with good spice - tender lamb and vegetables, and a perfect mashed potato "crust" that was crispy on top but soft and buttery underneath. Delicious. My date had the seven spice tuna. I wasn't bowled over by the seven spices, but the tuna was seared correctly, and the wasabi mashed potatoes were excellent. Decor is very nice (upscale lounge meets British pub?), the music was unobtrusive, and the server was polite and attentive. I would definitely recommend.

Great food, friendly service
My wife and I recently went for a casual dinner on a Friday night. The food was excellent and the place has an energetic vibe. Impressed by the current shrimp and scallops, Blokes burger, and porkchop. They have a decent beer and wine list as well. Our waiter was extremely friendly. We didn't have the quickest service, as it took about an hour for our food to arrive. But the waiter was attentive in the meantime and we weren't in any hurry. As we were leaving, the live music was getting go, which added to the fun environment.
I would definitely recommend Blokes & Birds for a casual night out for a couple or group of friends!
