Spectacular place! The staff, music, liquor selection- everything is awesome!
St Patrick’s Day weekend celebrating
I came for the fish but it was only on Fridays not Saturday so I ended up getting hot wings and waffle fries which I absolutely loved but the price was a bit much.
Very cool. Had reservations but decided to sit to at the bar to eat/drink because we wanted to socialize & the bartender was super sweet! We ordered most of what she suggested to us & it was delicious. The live band came on a little too late for us & the place gets crazy packed around 10pm. We will definitely be back for more.
Great value for what you got. Service was Excellent!
Great bar, good BBQ food and if you like beer or whiskey great bar!
Food was good, really enjoyed band
Our server was great, management was awesome and the food we had was phenomenal! We went to see the band and they rocked the house!! All around great experience!
I love coming to Chicago and going to Bub City!!! Weekends are our favorite, but really we go whenever we can because the food is amazing. The weekend band are great after we eat. Cannot wait to go back again.
You can't really go wrong with your meal choice here! It was ha rd d yo decide what I wanted to eat. Amazing drink selection! Love that you can get the Nashville vibe right in the heart of Chicago!
This was some of the best BBQ I have ever had, the brisket melted in your mouth!! HUGE selection of whiskey!! Amazing atmosphere with some rocking country music. Definitely a great break from the fancy restaurant scene and better food!!! Will be back the next time in Chicago!!
two thumbs up! excellent food only exceeded by the quality of the service.
Bloody Mary bar was amazing & reasonably priced!
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.
Second time I’ve been there. Got the wild fries as an appetizer this last time which was great, but both times I’ve been there the ribs didn’t blow me away. Not very much meat on them
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.

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
