Chicken and Farm Shop
What Insiders Are Saying
Chicken & Farm Shop is one of the casual restaurants in Soho House. It shouldn't come as a surprise that chicken is the main attraction.
Impressed! Food was delicious- large (not huge) portion sizes but more than I anticipated. Waiter was sweet!
Service was woeful but the manager was very kind to acknowledge and make things right at the end but what was supposed to be a
Service was lacking, waiter didn’t listen to our order and ended up serving wrong drink order. He acted as though we were bothering him since he never came to check on us.
Great food this restaurant reminds me of good ole southern cooking which is hard to find in Chicago.
Food was delicious. Unfortunately the service was less than standard. While being seated it felt more like we were a problem than a customer. We ordered two orders of fries, the first came way before any of our other food and the second came with our entrees. We sat close enough we were able to see our food sitting in the out take area for long enough the first order of fries were room temperature by the time we received them. Pretty disappointing first time experience and with so many other places to try in Chicago I can honestly say we won't recommend this place to anyone.
Food preparation & quality was below average for the price point. I will not return.
Came to Chicken and Farm shop for my birthday. I had the Fried Chicken Sandwich and it is huge. To be honest, you don't really need any sides because the sandwich is filling on it's own, but the collard greens and cornbread are pretty good. Because it was my birthday, the server brought my table a brownie a la mode. I had a great time and would definitely recommend!!
Our food arrived exactly 60 minutes after we sat down. They were genuinely sorry about it (backed up in the kitchen) and didn't charge us.
Fun, hidden gem. Food was FAB, service was friendly. Def going back.
Super cosey venue with excellent and attentive staff, the Chicken Sandwich is super duper and huge, cocktails good also.
My boyfriend and I came by for my birthday dinner. It was our first visit and have seen so many posts on IG raving about the fried chicken sandwich. We ordered the Hot 'n Smokey chicken wings, buffalo fried chicken sandwich, French fries, and coleslaw. My only complaint would be the coleslaw lacked in flavor 'cause it was quite bland. Other than that, everything was delicious. We'll definitely be coming back for the chicken, especially the fried chicken sandwich. We also very much enjoyed the ambiance; from the kitchen to the bar to the dining area and even to the bathroom! The atmosphere was great. Thank you for the wonderful dinner.
Went here for a colleagues birthday. The food was amazing!! We couldn’t believe how much was included as part of a lunch special where most places usually give you smaller portions. We had 10 people and they were very accommodating with splitting the check. Such a cool atmosphere too!!
Such a cute and quaint lil place! Perfect brunch spot. Everyone was more than pleased with their dish and the bloody Mary’s were spot on! I can’t wait to return.
You can never go wrong with the Chicken & Waffles for brunch! They are the best in all of Chicago, and the service is even more exceptional. Highly recommend the Chicken Shop for your next brunch outing (and a perfect alternative if The Allis is busy).
With chicken in its name, it does provide quality rotisserie and fried options that are mildly overpriced. The sides (mac and cheese, fries, and brussel sprouts) were a little bland but piping hot and fresh. We ordered 2 brussel sprouts for the table, but were only delivered one. After finally flagging down the waiter, he simply pointed to the brussel sprouts on the table and said there they are and started walking away. The rest of the staff was similarly curt when delivering other menu items. With a reservation (thanks opentable), it is an acceptable prenight out quick dinner spot.
We will be back.
I ordered the Chicken and Waffles and it was delicious, all the way from the batter to the chicken. The waffle was tasty and the chicken had a lot flavor! I definitely recommend this restaurant!!
Had a great family dinner. Love the casual atmosphere . Split the fried chicken and waffles and dirty burger with my 8 year old son, it was delicious. Service was great, we will definitely be going back.
The food was excellent. My daughter loved the Chicken and Waffles!
Food was fantastic! Had the buffalo fried chicken sandwich. Only complaint is the waiter messed up my order and didn’t even notice. We also randomly got some money off the bill.
I finally found a place to meet my soul food cravings! My boyfriend and i both tried out this place and we were very satisfied and amazed by the selection and service. The ambience is nice as well even with a full house. We enjoyed this place very much and will be returning soon!
Everything was great.
Amazing food!!!! Will be back!
Great food and service! Loved the location. We got there early so there wasn’t many people, loved it!
Very disappointing experience - food was oK , service was substandard
The food was amazing however the service was very poor. The waiter did not take time to make any explanations of the menu, did not take out drink order even after visiting the table twice, asked us to remind him to put out order in, and overall seemed very uninterested in taking or completing our orders.
The restaurant was vibrant and busy as you would expect on a Saturday night. Food came within a few minutes of ordering and was really good. Best chicken and waffles ever. Mac n cheese just perfect
Simple menu but done oh so well. It’s hard to believe chicken can be messed up but I have been to places that do. This place on the other hand does a fantastic job with fresh juicey fried chicken and all the comfort food sides you’d expect. Small place but awesome atmosphere and style.
Very cute restaurant. Chicken was crispy and tasty. The French fries were very disappointing. Very good service
The chicken and waffles are incredible! Fresh squeezed orange juice is better than anywhere else in the city.
The food was delicious. We tried the chicken and waffles and this entree is nothing like the other. The competition falls short in comparison. The service was great and I would recommend this establishment to all and anyone especially anyone who loves chicken.
The chicken was DELICIOUS and worth the price. Great vibe and best for friends get together.
The food and service were great! We really enjoyed our time there.
We really enjoyed the brussell sprouts and the general feel of the place. The chicken and waffles were pretty good. Two poached eggs on the fried chicken hollandaise were way overcooked. Fried chicken itself seemed over cooked and too oily tasting.
And I have no idea why an iced tea would taste like coffee...
The buttermilk fried chicken n’ waffles—GET THIS! Sooo tasty. Vanilla milkshake was lovely, very custard-like.
We went for lunch on a Sunday. It wasn't very busy which was nice. The food was good and unique. The portions weren't huge, but the quality of the food made up for it. We definitely plan on going again to try other things on the menu!
We went around 10 am and JR
Delicious lunch. Huge servings. Best cornbread ever!
Great chicken, cool farmhouse/retro decor, quick service. Different vibe than the rest of SoHo House and less expensive than many options in west loop—will definitely be back!
Excellent chicken. I was even shocked at how good they could make chicken nuggets taste. A step above.
