Diner Reviews
  • "This is a small sports bar place. Many TV's with sports of all kinds going on. I wouldn't expect anything less in a neighborhood loacted near the United Center. It was hard to hear and be heard. The food was okay, but nothing special, your typical bar food. The service was terrible. We were seated right away, but did not see a server for 20 mins and then only when we asked someone. Our server kept apologizing for the delay, but then continued to be slow iwth getting our drinks. Someone elses meal was delivered to our table. No compensation for the delays was ever offered. I would not recommend this place."

  • "We made a reservation and got seated right away. The waiter didn't notice we were there for 15 minutes but it was crowded. Had to find the host to see who had our table. After that we had a good dinner and fairly priced beers for the neighborhood. Great selection of craft beers. If you want to watch sports, you can't go wrong here. We got a chuckle when we asked what type of beer a particular offering was and she said "ABV". LOL"

  • "Great place to go before any event at the United Center. Make sure you have a reservation. The food is good but give yourself plenty of time. Arrived for a 615 reservation server told is lots orders would go in soon so we ordered by 625. We ordered the chicken club and the veggieburger and food did not come out until 715. The server kept telling us there were tickets in front of is although we observed no food was coming out of the kitchen. Good Beer list."

  • "Extremely disappointed in the restaurant. Our group of 3 arrived on time for our 6:15 reservation. It took over an hour to get our 2 burgers & chicken sandwiches! It was not that crowded & we expressed several times to our waiter that we had concert tickets at The Stadium and needed to get our food. When it finally arrived, we had to scarf it down in 15 minutes so we could leave and find a parking space. It was way too stressful to even enjoy any of the food. We had to keep reminding the waiter for our check as well."

  • "Took our server 10 minutes to take our drink order. Had to ask for water. We each ordered a burger and an appetizer and 30 minutes later when our food finally came out, he told us he forgot to put in the order for one of the burgers. 45 minutes later still no burger for her and I had long ago finished mine. At least what we got tasted good, the truffle mac was delicious. They kindly offered not to make us pay for the burger we never received, which I thought was very nice of them (sarcasm). I'm sure you can guess that we won't be going back."

  • "I like the design of the place. A great place for adults to hang out and watch a sports game. You should have another pool table, by the way. I wish the lunch menu was more elaborate. The chicken strips were meaty and good. The fries were very greasy and so I could not enjoy them. I would like to see more non-alcoholic choices, especially for the summer."

  • "If you like to be surrounded by TVs while you eat, this is the place for you. The booths have TVs built into the walls. The food was a good value for the price, and although our waiter had just started the week before, he was extremely nice and attentive. The lunch hamburger comes with fries and a drink for $10 - not bad! The hamburgers took a while, but they were flavorful and juicy, and the fries were nice and fresh. The bar windows open up so you can get a nice view of the street and all of the sounds that come with that. A very modern place in terms of decor - it looks like it was recently refurbished. I would love to come back here in the winter to hangout by the fireplace and drink Irish coffees."

  • "Nice atmosphere with lots of TVs so good for sports viewing. Unfortunately, the dining experience was poor -- drink service was slow, we waited 45 minutes for food and when the food arrived it was wrong."

  • " After my horrible experience here before the Queen concert the manager needs to know that this place needs a lot of attention. Here's what went right first. The greeter was pleasant and the burger was delicious. On the minus side a lot went wrong. We had a server that had too many tables. and we were put on ignore a lot. Second we ordered two simple items, a burger and a flatbread and it took 45 minutes to get our food. We literally had to scarf it down to make the show. The back of the house screwed up. She didn't bring napkins or silverware after being asked. She rolled her eyes when we aske like we were being difficult. We ask for a manager and they never came to apologize for the cooking error. I could go on. Don't go here."

  • "We went to watch a World Cup game and didn't have to ask that it be put up on the big screen (that doesn't happen at other places.) Food was delicious and the pace let us watch the whole game, unhurried."

  • "Great place for dinner, drinks, and entertainment. Parking is difficult with a car however if you ride motorcycles and ask nicely, they'll let you park in front. The food was delicious and the staff is very friendly. Would recommend to anyone looking for cocktails in a electric environment. We had a fantastic time watching the NHL game 6, Blackhawks..defiantly the place to be before, during, or even after game time. Not my first time there and defiantly not my last."

  • "The Ogden is a great spot to hit up before an event at The United Center. Went there before a Blackhawks game and have been back several times since. They have one of the best burgers in Chicago with a 2 year cheddar and bacon jam mustard. We utilize the $10 valet option and leave our car there for the game since it's a short 2 blocks from the UC. "

  • "Great environment, friendly staff and great food. We were a family group gathering following a graduation ceremony held in UIC Pavilion. We would choose the venue again for a casual, social bar/restaurant choice in close proximity to UIC and the Medical Colleges in the area. "

  • "This was my second trip to the Ogden. The location is awesome being only 2 blocks from the United Center and the $10 valet parking for the Blackhawks game is unbeatable. I had the animal fries, fries covered in pulled pork, giardiniera with a fried egg on top. Very tasty. Service was painfully slow due to the crowd for the game. 45+ for food. There are TV's everywhere to watch the game and they have a good tap selection. Definitely will go back."

  • "Our group of 4 enjoyed lunch here before a Blackhawks game. The aps, drinks, and sandwiches were good. Decor is a contemporary sports bar. We left our car there during the game for a nominal charge."

  • "Once again the Ogden did not disappoint! Stopped in before the hawks game. Great pre game vibe, great food, and convenient and courteous valet parking. This is now my regular stop before United Center events. They have a fantastic selection of craft brews both on tap and bottled."

  • "Our group of four had a reservation before the Blackhawks game on Sunday, the 16th. Upon arriving, we sat at our table for over 15 minutes before getting water or a server. Two servers stood near our table discussing which of them would handle our table....to no avail as neither of them did. Finally we were able to order drinks but also went ahead and ordered food because we weren't sure when someone would come back. it took over 25 minutes for our food to come out so even though we had a 5pm reservation for a 6:30 game, we had to inhale our food and run out to make the game."

  • "This was a great place to go before going to the Blackhawks game. The menu is good, serving the typical bar food necessities with an upscale presentation. My boyfriend got the veggie burger, and I got the bacon cheddar sliders; both were delicious except the waitress forgot to add bacon to the veggie burger and ended up charging us for it. Simple server mistake, no big deal. The beer list was moderate but delicious, and we had a great time before the game. I would definitely recommend this to people going to the United Center. Not a far walk from the UC and decent prices for good food."

  • "Food is pretty decent, and it is a comfortable and modern bar, excellent for watching a game but on a home game night, they were clearly understaffed and ill-equipped to handle a pregame dinner crowd."

  • "The truffle burger I had was great (though very messy!). The staff were friendly and happy to accommodate our large reservation group. They even split the checks for us. Got a little noisy by the end so I can imagine it might've been hard to get a table if I hadn't had a reservation. So because of that, thanks OpenTable!"

  • "We have been to the Ogden before, and the food never disappoints. With 10 of us, I realized just how loud the TV's were, because we could not hear one another as we talked. We asked them to turn it down a bit, they said they would, but the volume really did not change. The noise level was not from the people, but just the TV feed- really distracting."

  • "Had a great experience. The food was great, and so was the overall feel of the restaurant. Our service was a little slow, and it wasn't busy, but that wasn't a deal killer. I will be back."

  • "The Ogden was amazing - From the second I walked in the door until I left. The food was amazing, the decor and set up of the restaurant/bar is so neat and beautifully done! I could go on and on. I will definitely be back to try everything on the menu - I highly suggest the Wild Mushroom Flat bread and the Raspberry Pecan Salad - both are amazing!!!"

  • "The are a lot of good things to choose from on the menu. My hamburger was really great. Loved the pretzel bun. My husband's chicken sandwich was also really good, just a bit messy. Seasoned fries were really good and a very generous serving, but a bit too salty. I have only 2 complaints - the lag time between ordering and receiving our food, and the time we waited for our receipt after the waitress took our credit card. I would definitely go back next time I go to united center."
