A short strut from Chicago’s Restaurant Row, Chicken and Farm Shop serves up free-range Amish birds, which are marinated overnight, steamed and then cooked over charcoal on a special rotisserie. Head Chef James Garron uses the same birds to whip up comfort classics like chicken and waffles and a fried chicken sandwich. In a space taking inspiration from 1950s American general stores, guests enjoy a fun, casual setting while dining on indulgent eats and a rare taste of rotisserie in Chicago.

This place is definitely a fav, having become my go to spot when I have out of town guests. As a vegetarian I typically order the veggie chili (it’s so yummy) and Mac n cheese, but my friends typically enjoy the chicken and waffles dish.

The service was lackluster. Even though the place was nearly empty, it took a while to be seated even though I had a reservation. The server messed up my friend’s order, as well.

Everyone is great ! The food is the best and their selections are for both vegans or meat heads.

It seems like each time I go the experience gets worse.
- One of the cooks was eating off the line; this turns my stomach on so many levels.
- Water bottles need to be cleaned
- It was a slow Saturday of course so much going on in the city and raining but the service was lack luster. Mind you they had enough staff to cover each table.
- Food: We ordered the Rotisserie Chicken Meal w/(2) sides. The chicken was the only thing hot on the platter. Mac and cheese bland even the bread crumbs on top just dry. Sprouts were horrible as if they have been reheated from night before and tossed in sugar dressing. Let’s not forget about the dry corn bread and rock for a biscuit😑. The Maple butter couldn’t even bring it back to life. We tried to make things better with dessert and ordered the apple pie🤢. Canned apples smothered in brown sugar; the crust was so hard the ice cream didn’t even melt. Costco serves a better apple pie and can get a whole pie for the price of the slice ordered.
Overall the experience was pretty much a waste especially with so many other options to choose from within the area. I feel some updated training is need for entire staff and just revamp menu. But then again with the number of covers within the time of our reservation I’m sure people aren’t into the food like before. Honestly I wish I could’ve gotten a refund and grabbed dinner from someplace else.

Enjoyed my son's 19th b'day brunch with family. We will absolutely return to this establishment in the future. I am a vegetarian and left the brunch just as satisfied as my meat eating family members. I will say it is VERY dark inside so of you wear readers, bring them! I almost couldn't read the menu.

The chicken and waffles is excellent so are their alcoholic shakes. However it is VERY loud and you might struggle to even hear your waiter.

Great little spot for lunch. The Chicken sandwich was better than the dirty burger, but we enjoyed both. The fries were a bit soggy, i'm recommend trying a different side.

Unbelievably good chicken, both fried and rotisserie! Chicken and waffles to die for. Get the brussel sprouts as one of your sides, even if you hated them as a kid. These sprouts will change your life!

Service is beyond horrible there. I dine out about 5 times out of the week so I have a pretty good understanding of what good service is. The food was okay. The chicken sandwich was 70% fat and breading. Once you order, the food runner brings your food one by one. Expect people in your group to be sitting without food while your food sits on the table getting cold. Horrible place.

we waited atleast 15 minutes to get waited on and waited 35 minutes for our food, one person in our party didn't receive his dinner and had to share our food. the waitress was not friendly at all. when we asked about the dinner for my boss that never came, her response was 'oh, sorry, I'll remove it from the bill" we wanted the food but got tired of waiting. we had a party of 5 and the table was way too small to accommodate the dishes. Will not go back and will not refer to anyone.

It took a while for someone to greet us so we were standing there for a little bit. The food definitely made up for this as the chicken and waffle were great! I highly recommend ordering that if you go. I will definitely be going back!

Fresh tasty food and you don't have to worry about food allergies because they cook preparing your food with thought in mind! Staff very nice and welcoming...not much of a sports at but there are a couple of tvs if you want to catch a game. The place is for good dining and conversation.

I had the quarter chicken with fries plus the warm brownie for dessert and my dinner date had the original fried chicken sandwich.

The chicken free range roasted chicken and it was good. It didn't take long for the food to come out. The chicken sandwich was huge!!!! Two chicken breast fried to perfection and the sides are sharable if you choose too. The brownie was ok we could have passed. Overall cost $56 including two cokes.

This was our first time visiting Chicken and Farm Shop. The host seemed confused when we got there. They were not overly crowded. We got our water right away and then had to wait a little bit to order. We ordered 2 chocolate shakes as well as the whole Rotisserie chicken dinner. It took almost 20 mins to get our shakes and they were awful. They were over blended and like Luke warm chocolate soup.
The dinner was tasty. We do wish they offered traditional sides like mashed potatoes and gravy.
We most likely won’t be back.

Delicious food and great service! I tried the dirty chicken sandwich and my husband ordered the quarter rotisserie chicken. Both were delicious! Fries and biscuits for our sides to share were plenty. Full bar with plenty to chose from. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend!

Food was amazing however we did not get great service. Our waitress was not at all engaged or interested in helping us and even yawned loudly as I was giving her my order. The food was good and I'll definitely be back but service was less than ideal.

The food at chicken shop is delicious. Everyone at our table was satisfied. The service on the other hand, wasn’t the best. We were immediately greeted and orders taken right when we sat down which was nice, but we didn’t see much of our waiter the rest of the night. There were six of us friends getting together for drinks and dinner but once we ordered the first round the server never came back to offer more drinks. We sat at the table for almost three hours and never got his attention until it was time for the bill. When he said “can I get you guys another drink” it was too late.
