I chose this place to watch the Hawks game with friends because the menu was varied, it was advertised to have a large number of tvs, and because we were able to make a reservation. Unfortunately when we arrived,they refused to honor the reservation even after we explained we had used open table and had a confirmation number. I was told they NEVER take reservations (it wasn't due to the Stanley Cup finals being on and increased business) and they were unaware of the business being on open table. They could not promise us a table or estimate a wait time. Luckily it worked out and were seated minutes before game time. The food, prices, and atmosphere were great. Service was adequate. I would go again but the reservation not being honored was frustrating. Don't expect to have yours honored either!

My party of six arrived promptly for our 6:00 reservation. It took approximately 22 minutes until I waved down the manager to advise him we had yet to see our server. He advised us she was @having a rough night". Mind you the place was far from busy. He offered to get our drinks. We finally received them around 6:45. Our server finally showed up shortly after with no apology and asked if we were ready to order. I would hope so after almost an hour! The food came rather quickly. It was pretty mediocre. Very little flavor to the beef stroganoff, mac n cheese was Velveeta on some elbow macaroni.
Had the manager apologized or offered some sort of compensation, I may have been willing to give it another go but it was obvious he didn't care.

I was very sad at the service this year.This was our top spot to watch fb games. First off I went up to hostess stand to check in and 3 girls were there,they told me they checked me in and a few hrs later got an email saying my reservation was cancelled.had to go talk to someone who had me rebook a later reservation so I could get points. We sat at the bar and for 40 mins no one came by I had to go ask hostess for menus. The bar tender walked by me 5 times before he noticed me trying to get his attention for another round of beers. Overall- awful.sad, cause was a good bears Sunday football location. But will be looking for a new spot to watch the game! Will not be going back. Service is huge and this place disappoints on every level!

Village and Anyways had a 1hr wait so I turned to opentable to try something new. What a nice surprise! Open, clean and the menu choices broad. From pasta, burgers, wings it's the great pub location. I had the fish fry and my husband had the wings. The fish was outstanding, beer batter light and cod flaky; more fish than batter! We will return!

This is where my husband and I had our first date. It is where we went for our first Valentines day as husband and wife. The service is great. The food and prices are really good. I love this restaurant.

Excellent bar service with great appetizers and bar/dinner food. Salads are awesome and the pizza is even better. Always a special on, so very worth going on any evening. Great servers too!
