Kaiser Tiger opened in May 2014 and has already been nominated as Best Bar by Time Out Chicago and named America's Number 1 Beer Hall by Jetsetter. Sausage, Bacon and Beer are the specialty at this bi-level indoor and outdoor space. Soft baked pretzels, gourmet sausage and unique bacon dishes are on offer along with a killer list of 24 craft beers.
In winter you can play Ice Curling in the beer garden.
This is the second venture by the guys who brought you Paddy Long's Beer & Bacon Pub in Lakeview.

We informed restaurant ahead of time about birthdays that were never acknowledged. Our food order was never entered or brought without us completely reordering from the waitress. A promotional person was there passing out beer glasses and the only thing bussed on the table were those with old empty cups left. When we asked to divide the check, the waitress told us most people just take care of that themselves and told us she didn’t have time to divide our bill because it was very busy. We were very disappointed because we brought 7 people from out of town to celebrate and the experience was not enjoyable unfortunately.

We always have such a wonderful experience at Kaiser Tiger! It has become one of our go-to spots to bring visiting family and friends. Food and drinks are great, we love Bacon the cat, and the outdoor area is fantastic in all seasons.

Would have liked to eat outside as music and atmosphere indoors was loud and reverberating in empty feeling space. The server was terrific, cheerful snd very efficient . I think her name was Rachel. Food was delivered correctly and with little wait and she took the time to help with beer menu. Very young crowd.

Loved the band jukebox heroes, loved the ambiance, loved Bacon the cat. Thought the cheese and sausage board needs a bit of work on the sausages

Everything was good, we have seen this place a lot when we walk the dogs and want it to give a try.

The hostess was friendly and the waitress and bar man. But the security guy was very RUDE and gave us a speech about why we need (foreign visitors) to have American id and that it was the last time he was letting us in. So as good as the whole service and food was this incident was for us the doom of this place.

Hope someone from this restaurant read this review and does something about educating this particular guy on reading and understanding other nationalities ids.

Food and drinks were amazing. The price reflects the drink/food quality. There was a live performance and energetic customers. I gave the service 3 stars because of our server who wasn't the most responsive to our table. The hostess however made up for that and the managers did address the situation. It was at a high volume time so I was understanding of the employees. I appreciated the concern; I would return and invite friends. Great experience ;)

Kaiser Tiger was very accommodating when I had to modify my reservation, and sat us in a great booth outside per my request. Our server was actually just the bartender, and although our section was technically self-serve, he took our order and helped us out anyway. He was super knowledgeable and patient, and even gave our dog some leftover bacon. I can’t recommend this place enough, especially for a big group!

Our server was average. She acted as if she didn't want to be there and was annoyed. Food was good and came out very quickly. Room was very dark and didn't have any ambiance, but that could be b/c Covid and making room sparse.

The service was extremely slow. The drinks came out incorrect. The pretzels ordered were hard. The outdoor patio was nice, however, the staff were overly aggressive with allowing you the ability to get up even if it was to go to the restroom. I understand the city of Chicago is controlling the covid mandates but the way they handled it was not considerate to the customers.

We stopped by for brunch. What a wonderful place with a great menu. My boyfriend had the Schnitzel and it was perfect. Bartender took the time to make me a non-spicy bloody mary because I was afraid their regular mix might be too much. Outstanding brunch options. We’ll be back!
