Excellent service, good food (for meatlovers), and a shuttle to and from the United Center! Doesn't get any better!

very good place to visit before a Hawks game, gotta get there within the window to get a table, or use "OpenTable" for the reserved seating. Pretty good menu, may have expected a little better, but was still pretty good food. Ambience/atmosphere before the Hawks game was what made the place.

Went there for lunch with a friend. Only a handful of people there but that was expected during the middle of the week. I ordered the pork schnitzel sandwich my friend wasn't impressed with her food either.

We had a reservation and were able to get seated 15 min early. Our food came out super fast and our waitress was very nice. It was pretty loud inside, but the atmosphere was fun and enjoyable.

Would recommend for a Blackhawks or Bulls game, lots of room. Wasn’t a huge fan of their food.

Was not a fan of the food. The fries with garlic aoli were fire, but other than that we werent pleased. Although it would be a fun place to grab a drink and hang out. Service was great.

Food was mostly average, but service was good. Very loud place with lots of drunks so fun for a night out but not if you want to have conversation.

We go to Kaiser Tiger on New Year’s Day every year to get a bacon board, outstanding skillets and sausage dishes, a great fire pit and s’mores. It gets better every year. A great way to start the new year!

We had the Kaiser Board. It is mostly a big pretzel , but a delicious pretzel!!!

We also went out back to the Curling lanes and had a great time. The curling team that is helping are a lot of fun. After curling we sat by the outdoor fire and finished our drink.

A fun experience in the city.

I was celebrating a birthday with some friends and they were very accommodating. Great that they have board games for you to play in addition to the curling in the winter!

Had a great time at Kaiser Tiger! The beer list is great, service was frequent without being overbearing, and the food is also really good! It's a fun atmosphere on the weekend or before a Bulls or Blackhawks game.

Loved the atmosphere and general vibe of the place. Great food and great beer list. Service was overall good, unfortunately one of the food runners was rude when handing out the orders. Other than that, no issues with the service.

Always love Kaiser Tiger however this time pregaming the Chicago Blackhawks game was very different. It was a Friday night, reservation made over two weeks in advance, and our table was in the special event/overflow part of the restaurant which has zero ambiance. One tv which was not on. We asked for it to be turned on and the guy said he didn’t think it worked. After a long work week, being excited to be going to the game, getting to hang with a friend I don’t see often, the room was a buzzkill. We are used to being seated in the energetic bar area. KT always has a solid craft beer list and the food is very good, which is why it is on our shortlist of pregame bars/restaurants. I hope this seating experience was an isolated incident. In addition, I will be requesting bar area for future reservations.

This was a new place for us to try while we were in Chicago for a concert. I loved the free shuttle service and the variety of beers they had. The fried was excellent, especially the bacon wrapped dates.

Excellent draft list with a nice variety of styles and sizes or someone who may just like a taste of something. Food very good with some interesting/different options and good twists on classic bar food but a the end of the day a little overpriced for what was really just a hot dog and cheeseburger. Great outdoor patio space, we were there with 3 babies under 1 year and were easily accommodated with strollers/high chair. Super friendly waitress and generally great service, only negative was it was a really hot day and our waters were never refilled had to ask several times.

Put together a happy hour for my office. Server was rude and kept trying to close our tab because we either weren't ordering enough, or because she was clocking out. Either way, we did not enjoy and will not be back.
What a shame, I've heard many great things about this place.
And the food was great!

Holy French Fries!!! Absolutely delicious fries with incredible dipping sauces. We got a large and split it between 7 people and still had leftovers. HIGHLY recommend the garlic aioli dipping sauce. We went on a saturday aftenoon and the place was packed. The noise level was a little high but not unbearable. Good beer selection!

We were going to a show at the United Center and didn’t want to do the normal fast food before parking. So we found this place on here, and saw some good reviews. Decided to try it for ourselves, and man were our expectations met. Service was exceptional, and the food came out quickly. Highly recommend and definitely will be back again.

Most patrons were in the outside portion. We were pretty surprised by how slow the service was, and our server took a long time to arrive to the table, didn't offer coffee until we ordered about 15 minutes later, and checked in on us during the meal one time at the very end. Food was really good, but was disappointed by the slow, inattentive service.

We made a reservation for 6pm and showed up 45 minutes early and they were able to seat us early without a problem. Food was well worth the price, service was fantastic. Would recommend and would return again if in the area. They also offered a free shuttle to a concert we were attending after dinner!

Meat! If you are a vegetarian, you will not be happy. We had the bacon grenades and sausage sandwiches. Fantastic. Great beer list too.
