Simple food menu and overall nothing special. Beer is all hype and over priced. Service was decent.

Great selection of delicious beer. Unfortunately, the bathroom was filthy, the booths were very worn/tattered, and the service was average. The only food we had was the pretzel appetizer, and that was good, but unfortunately without having anything else I can't comment on the entrees. I'll be back if I'm looking for good beer selection, but not if I'm looking for a date spot.

This is a great place to start your evening off. The beer selection is plenty and very satisfying. The food is delicious and the surroundings are a site to take in. Staff is friendly and all around a great place to have a drink or four.

We needed extra seats for others that decided to come after I reserved and they were very accommodating. Food was really good and beer is awesome!

I love Goose Island beers, I've been wanting to come here since I moved to Chicago 3 years ago. The hostess staff was very friendly, however my server seemed annoyed by me sitting in her section. Her tone was very cold, straight to the point. I was waiting for a friend, so I looked over the beer menu and found a few of the beers I was interested in. Sadly they had run dry for the evening. So I settled with a different beer. It was fine... other than the fact that it was warm. The glass was not chilled, beer was not chilled, just warm fizzy beer. Is this a thing? Thanks??? My friend and I were thinking about having dinner there but felt pressure by the server that we needed to order something ASAP. Between the warm beer and unfriendly nature of our server, we decided to go somewhere else for dinner and additional drinks.

Excellent beer selection made possible by our awesome bartender! We drink Goose Island at the Jets home games and we wanted to experience different brews. We asked our bartender to make our selections for flights. Spot on! The food was delicious and fresh. The decor was eclectic and comfortable. Excellent experience.

Decent menu with good food selections including burgers, poutine, appetizers and a great beer menu. Service was good although the place wasn't very crowded giving us a bit of a "lost" feeling and not sure why we were seated as far away from the pub as we were.

The staff was very friendly. Our server was helpful in helping us to choose a beer each of us would like from their list. I will be bringing guests here again many times.

This is a mere shadow of its former self-only beer, no cocktails, no wine, limited menu. However, service was quick and the hamburger was decent.

Brunch was good, but not a lot of dinner options to choose from. You almost always get seated right away, but takes a bit before you're approached by your waiter/waitress. The environment is neat and it is a local brewery so it's fun to try their different beers.

It was a typical Saturday afternoon crowd. Took my mother for a birthday lunch and drinks. Since brunch was still being served, I opted for an omelette, the brie omelette to be exact. The cheese was very overbearing and after asking for a new one, it still wasn't very good. Only because I hadn't eaten all day, I settled on the breakfast burger. Regardless of the food, the service was good.
