We had a large group of 9 people. The servers were nice and accommodating. We didn’t get asked if we wanted the check separate or together (they gave it together). Just thought that a group of casual adults would be considered separate payment. Otherwise the food was amazing and the experience was great! Definitely recommend for those visiting Chicago.

A great place to grab a delicious burger and a beer. A little on the pricey side for what it is but, the food is definitely legit.

Our server, Lance, was very kind and attentive!

The food was pretty good, but the burgers were quite overcooked. Overall, the burgers and ambiance are unique, but a little overpriced for what you get (all sides are a la carte).

Make sure to ask them if the kitchen is busy or not. You could wait one hour without even being served an appetizer.

Service was a tiny bit slow but the food was excellent. And although the price for 3 people - without alcohol- was over $70, we will be back. Maybe not all the time, but we will be back.

I enjoyed the food at Burger Bar immensely. The jerk wings, fried pickles and Mac and Cheese were phenomenal. I also had a whiskey sour and that was pretty excellent. The staff was ready for my large parties reservation so we were sat on time. My waiter did take a while to get everyone's order and didn't get back to our table often enough to take second orders but to be fair it was semi busy.

Overall, it was a good experience. My advice would be definitely make a reservation, make sure your party all arrives on time, and try to be ready with the waiter comes to the table or you may be waiting for them to come back for a while. If you are trying to converse, not really the spot. The noise level is high. Not a quiet dinner but definitely a good one.

If you want a good burger and a beer (or even a milkshake) it's a good place to go. It was a little too much food for me but my college students (who were all non-traditionally aged) really enjoyed it! Nice location right on S. Michigan just down the street from the Chicago Hilton.

3 of our 6 burgers were undercooked, waitress visited us maybe twice. Have been here before and had no issues so maybe this was a 1 off but I also heard it was closed down for a while for sanitation purposes.

Poor service and overpriced burgers. Went on a weekday night and we were one of 6 tables in the whole place. Should’ve known better.

Was seated promptly by good staff. Order was taken quickly and menu was thoroughly explained. Had the pork belly appetizer without the kimchi. Was very well cooked and tasty. Built my own burger (no bun) with a side salad. I ordered a medium burger but it was more medium-well to well done. Meat was tasty but a little dry. Toppings were good. Wait staff took awhile to get me my check so luckily I was not in a hurry. I would go back and try some other items.

One of the best burgers Iv'e ever had. Irish born waitress was more than friendly and kind. Went there before Peter Frampton concert which was hot that day . Air con could have been a bit cooler but besides that small complaint we had a very enjoyable time there.

We have been here several times. The food and drink are excellent. The bartending and wait staff are also very nice and attentive. However, service from the kitchen has been a little slow the last few times we were there. It seems to take a long time (up to 40 mins) from the when the order is put in to when the kitchen actually delivers the food! Other than that - no complaints!

Were going to a show at Soldiers Field and this location was great for dinner...unfortunately the experience was not good. Our service was very poor...slow, forgot our appetizer order and when it finally arrived it was horrible. We ordered the chips and guacamole/cheese and it was so bad. Burger was also just “ok”...expected better.

Everything we tried to order they were out of. Portions were small and not filling. Everything was over priced. Wasn’t worth my time, energy or money going to this place. Manager was also RUDE!

Super cool restaurant located near the Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, and Adler Planetarium. The food was well priced for how large the portions were and how delicious it was! We both had “the” bacon cheeseburger which had the thickest layer of aged cheddar I’ve ever had, delicious! We also had the regular fries, sweet potato tater tots, and the fried pickles. Everything was amazing!! Would definitely go again next time I visit Chicago.

The burgers were OK, but nothing special and way to expensive. Charges for basic hamburger staples such as lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, barbeque sauce and all the options was too much over the top.
3 beers and two burgers should not have been a $90 meal cost for 2. Sorry but we could have gotten the equivalent at Portillo's for $30.
