It was recommended and the lead Up was disappointing. Not a TRUE BBQ no brisket except on a sandwhich?? It's true BBQ with Brisket, pulled pork and Chicken combos. VERY DISAPPOINTED won't be back 😞😞

This was terrible. When I lived in Chicago, Fireplace Inn was one of my favorite restaurants. It is now a horribly loud and crowded sports bar. We didn't stay. We left and walked to Twin Anchors.

I remember this place from years ago, dark and quiet, busy with food like smoked bbq ribs that fell off the bone and melted in your mouth. Today it is a sportsbar with good food. Not the same, but fine for what it is.

My son had just graduated from naval boot camp the day before Thanksgiving. I took him here for Thanksgiving dinner. I had the turkey dinner and it was awesome. My son, had the surf and turf, which was excellent.
Our waiter was fantastic. Couldn’t ask for a better place to spend Thanksgiving with my son in Chicago.

Server looked annoyed that she had to work. It was a Saturday night and it was very busy. I'm not sure if she typically has a bad attitude or a scheduling issue.
