Good burger before the game. Chose this restaurant because of location and had heard about it from others.

A reasonable place near Wrigley Field where you can get a reservation for a small group before a Cubs game.

Great place to go for a Cubs game; honored our reservation without any problems. Service and food was spot on..however my only comment is that I wish they had the volume from the music turned down a little. We were sitting close to the street and still had a hard time hearing our conversations over the sound of the music.

ordered a wide range of items from the menu. when food arrived the fresh cut potato chips were actually dripping oil and were soggy way under cooked. after taking a bite of the chicken sandwich i called the waitress over and informed her i was not happy with the pink chicken ( way undercooked again). then my wife had to refuse her burger bites way over cooked ( heavy charred) this was our 3rd time eating here and it was our last time as well.
lots of luck on your experience.

We made our reservation on opentable for our party of 11 that afternoon. When we arrived at the restaurant they had no record of it and weren't ready for us. The hostess was not very helpful but I persisted and she brought me to her manager, Leo. Leo was awesome and worked diligently to put three tables together from various parts of the restaurant to accommodate our group. It was a really busy time since the Cubs Game had just ended, but he made it happen. Our out of town guests lived their food and it ended up being a great experience. Thank you Leo!!!

Great Find next to the Wrigley Field for pre game dining. The atmosphere was awesome and the place was extremely clean compared to some of the other establishments in the area. Food and the mixed drinks were excellent. Service was quick and courteous.

My only issue with our visit was that I took the time to make a reservation through Open Table but when we got there, they did not have our reservation. I showed them the confirmation I received and they did not have anything. It ended up not mattering because they had seating for our party of 10. During our visit they were very attentive - great early bird specials for our first stop of the evening!

While we obviously expected service to be slow before a game, it was horri5ly slow. The waitress said food would take 15-20 minutes, but it ended up taking over 45 minutes. We missed the start of the game as a result. If you go before a game, make sure it is at least 1.6 hours before game time and order right away.
The service was poor as well for drinks.
