    Very tasty fried chicken sandwich. Service was good and enjoyed sitting in the open window watching the long line of cars waiting to get into Perillo's. This is a nice place for a casual day/night out.

    Dined on 5/25/2014
    We were looking for a spot last minute to get a bit to eat that relatively casual but had good food. We found a great spot here. The beer flights were good as was the Moscow Mule. Food portions were very generous and very tasty. It was like many other Chicago places in that it had the upscale sports bar/restaurant vibe. The bar area was very busy and some good music in the background. The only complaint was that it was just a little too dark inside. We had a bit of trouble reading the menu without the use of lights on our phones. My sister just moved into the area so we will for sure be back.

    Stout has the best burger sliders. I don't know what magic they put in them! Also, they honored our reservations on a really busy night. Thanks Stout!! They also have a great Bloody Mary bar on Sunday! I like this place.

    I made a reservation through opentable for this past Saturday at 1pm and it was not honored. I was told the restaurant was at capacity and that it was opentables fault. Now, my party and I traveled to come to this restaurant and not only did we not get a table, we were not allowed entry because they were too full. Why were there reservations available if they were not going to honor them? I would have gone somewhere else or made different plans. This whole experience was very upsetting and I don't plan on using opentable or going to this restaurant again if they are not going to honor reservations. Was this truly opentable's fault or the restaurant?

    There's nothing I do not like about Stout! The food is always great, the service and staff are awesome, the TVs are perfect for game viewing, the music is energetic and the DJs are killing it, and the crowd is hot. Always a great time and never disappoints.

    Typical bar with big booths and an odd DJ in the corner spinning on a Sunday morning. Not bad, not dreaming about returning - delivers what it claims to but nothing to write home about.

    the food was great, and the bloody mary bar was great (this is why we went). i was pleasantly surprised to find it was really a WI Badger bar, as I'm an alum & the Capital One bowl game was on! Pure coincidence, too! Had i gone there with the intention of just watching the game, it would be 5 stars, but we tried to have brunch with my boyfriend's parents and we couldn't have a conversation - it was SOOO loud, really too loud between the volume of the game & the DJ that played during the commercials. Would have been great at 10-11pm, just not at noon.

    So dark we couldn't read the menu. The menu is on brown paper and it was too dark to read. If they had out door space I would try it again in the summer. But no side walk seating in summer.

    The food is ok and the ambience is terrible. You won't be able to hear yourself talk because the speakers are too loud and we were sitting away from them. They're so loud that you're entire booth will be vibrating the entire time and you won't be able to hear yourself speak. In fact the staff will barely be able to hear your order because it's so loud, and they will refuse to turn down the music or tv's because that's what this place Stout is known for...The Energy. I will never ever go back this this place. My migrane lasted for 2 1/2 days, and not to mention my friends that came with me, they still have a headache and bad taste from Stout.

    I took a colleague there for dinner and drinks; however, the pizza was under cooked and the mussels were cold upon arrival. They did arrive very quickly, so they may have come from another diner's table. The beer selection is notable, so if going for drinks, I would recommend, but otherwise skip. The location cannot be beat.

    This was our third time returning to Stout and first time sitting at a table. The primary server was ok and did the job she was hired for, but zero enthusiasm until it was time to deliver the bill. We are a group of generous tippers based on the relationship we build with our server and it just wasn't happening with her, so we ended up saving money that night. Our table attendant however was outstanding! He looked after us like we were the only table in the restaurant. His enthusiasm was the catalyst to a better experience.. As for the food it was presented timely, hot, and good tasting for the price points. Liquor prices are pretentious so it's not what we consider a "bring your friends for the evening bar" but we'll go back for the food.

    I have been to Stout a few times to join friends for drinks or to catch a game or so and that's where the good stops. Last night was my first time as a diner and it was mediocre at best.. My girlfriend and I split the cobb salad w/shrimp and I had the fried chicken. The cobb salad was dressed fine, had enough shrimp, but it lacked any other indredients. It only had romaine lettuce, shrimp, cheese, & cherry tomatoes. What happened to the other usual suspects like bacon and avocado or something else that would remind me of the original. When it came to my friend chicken, it was not crispy enough & a little greasy. The potato salad it came with was bland, while the watermelon salad was the best part but made the chicken soggy.

    Not only does this place have delicious hot pretzels, but they take reservations during games-love that!! My only gripe was the grilled cheese. Sounded good on the menu, but too much bread in the execution (it's open faced, with a thick slice of bread reminiscent of pizza bread with no sauce). Despite that, a great option in the area for watching a game and hanging out!
