Fun and lively BBQ joint. Our chicken was a bit over-cooked, but my daughter loved her ribs. The prices were good for the River North area. The whiskey selection was impressive.
The food was bomb AF , shorty ate her burger in like 5 minutes I was blew OFN
A relaxed great time every time! Live music from time to time at brunch. Best bloody mary bar in the city!!
Great brunch options and fabulous bloody mary bar.
Excellent food, good service, sangria a little weak, but good, fun atmosphere.
Waitress was overwhelmed and it took us a long time to get served. But she was friendly!
Great Food, great service and great music! Love coming here!!
Food was not warm and while lots of food taste and temperature left a lot to be desired
The staff are incredible!!!! I cant say enough. They’re respectful, fun, and veryyyyy courteous!
I didnt get the table i reserved for the superbowl, but they exceeded my expectations and sat me on the stage, they took care of my bill.
I will be a usual in here, dont know about you, but this place has a great crowd, great service, and amazing music!!!!
Go dont hesitate, it’ll be fun!
Every thing was perfect for Super Bowl night except for draft beer that wasn’t as cold as it should be.
Music was extra loud today
Went there to hear live music but sound was off or something it was hard to hear vocals... service was great- attentive and quick server, host was friendly and accommodated us well with changing our reservation upon arrival (had more guests than originally planned) Good atmosphere and ample space!
Haven’t left many reviews on Open table, but our experience was exceptionally bad. It’s restaurant week and my friends and I pick a BBQ restaurant. They were out of ribs and had sold out of dessert as well. The food they did have (not what we had gone for) was mediocre at best. We had 4 entrees and our tab was $240! What the?! We won’t be back.
Nice place with good bbq. I frequently bbq and their’s is high quality. Portions are large. We were able to shared an app and the large sampler platter.
I guess we went at a bad time and were seated to a large group that had over consumed. Our 11 year old found the conversations and behavior amusing and I did address their language specifically. Management was proactive actually asking them to leave and giving use desert. FYI, you must have the apple pie.
No complaints would definitly go back.
It was amazing the food is great
Was very pleasantly surprised with the customer service. We had a reservation at 10pm and called to let them know we were running late. Showed up by 10:30 and they didn’t have a table ready for us but were very apologetic and even offered us a round of drinks while we waited. They seated us as soon as something was available. They went above and beyond when most establishments would have said we were out of luck with our reservation. Thanks to the hostess and manager who went above and beyond our expectations!
The Manager, Tim was fantastic, our server Chris was super friendly and very sweet, food was good, band was fantastic. We had a slight problem with our reservation. Made the reservation on your site but the hostess said they were overbooked and could not accommodate us. When we spoke to the manager, he was very apologetic and accommodating. We were very well taken care of, not sure what happened with the reservation, but they fixed it.
Food was good the restaurant was very crowded and they sat us close to the front door. With it being so cold out today we were freezing.
Food was great and service was fast.
Girls weekend, fun night out!
Great food, great service. I will definitely be back soon.
Super good brunch. Great prices! Great service. Best Bloody Mary bar.
Awesome place, great food, excellent service. This Bloody Mary bar was the most amazing I’ve ever seen.
Son 13 birthday
Ribs were over cooked and dry. Disappointing.
I wish I remembered my servers name next restaurant I enjoy the service I had there I will keep the customer copy of the receipt I'm in the industry and if you do there he had a beard and was amazing at explaining the whole menu
Bub City never disappoints! Went for an early NYE dinner with our 9 year old son. Service was excellent!! Waitress even brought our guy a free dessert!! My son had the ribs and said they were amazing. Hubby had the brisket special and said it was great. I LOVE the Nashville chicken sandwich!! Fried pickles too!!!
Great service and food - top notch!
Great food and very quick service.
Wonderful. Our server went out of her way to give me treats for my birthday. She was beyond generous.
Great brunch while watching the Bears game. Service (Katie) was excellent, food delicious. Many screens and games.
Food was good and they have a Great whiskey selection!!!
What a great venue for a group of friends info chicago! Great food, great ambiance ander service!! A must see in Chi-town!!
One of our favorites. The food is delicious and the drinks are fantastic!
Food was good, sandwiches a little small but great flavors. Sides are expensive. Would love to have a little of each of them but that could really rack up the dollars. Our waitress was outstanding, really took care of us!! Love the atmosphere.
Service was great. Unfortunately our table was overtaken by the party next to us who
Everything was satisfactory
Thematic restaurant that was blasting football the day we went. It was insanely loud. At least during the commercial breaks, they played music and not the ads. The food was fine, though most of it we ordered was not seasoned at all...not even salt, and pretty pricey for what you get. The drinks were great, though. I ordered salmon and it was under cooked.; to their credit they cooked a brand new piece for me instead of reheating the piece I was originally served. The manager was very polite and accommodating, and that was a pleasant surprise. One thing I really did appreciate, is they have a gluten free fryer, so I was able to have tater tots - which is a rare treat and I enjoyed them.
We enjoy a 21st Birthday at Bub City. Usually on a Sunday a live band is playing, but the Chicago Bears were on, so that worked. Food was delivered quick, service was accommodating, great over all.
Love this place!
