About

Michelin-starred Dusek’s Board & Beer celebrates the enduring link between beer, food and hospitality. This neighborhood restaurant continues the tradition of pairing great food with beer: The brine of fresh-shucked shellfish meeting the toast of a Dry Stout, the salted smoke of cured meat balanced by the fruit esthers of a Belgian Dubbel, the complex spice of Vietnamese clay pot fish quenched by a crisp Pilsner.

Private party facilities
Located just under Dusek's Board and Beer, just behind the bookcase, our intimate private dinning space "The Beer Cellar" is also home to our supply of large format beers and wines. Its reto-chic vibe is perfect for cozy dinner parties, client meetings & rehearsal dinners and seats up to 30 people.

Adjacent to Dusek's Board & Beer, Tack Room was built in the same space as the stables where Mr. Dusek kept his horses. An exposed brick wall, exposed ceiling pipes, a wall of windows and galloping horse wallpaper make the Tack Room a playful and welcoming environment that seats up to 45 or can host 75 for cocktails.

Thalia Hall is a landmarked historic building originally built in 1892 as a Czech meeting hall. As of 2013 it has reopened and been re-imagined as a modern day town hall; a central meeting place that can seat 250 or host a cocktail party for 800.

Dusek's, Tack Room, and Punch House are also available for buy outs.

The short ribs were the highlight of the meal. The salmon appetizer tasted good, but it tasted more like a fancy egg salad than salmon, which was a miss.

Food was delicious and staff went above and beyond to make sure our entire evening including seeing the Strumbellas went off without a hitch!

Duseks is a casual restaurant with great food. Our braised shortribs and our gnocchi appetizer were top notch. If you are going to a concert upstairs at Thalia Hall, Duseks is a must!

They said they no longer accept open table reservations, so it was quite embarrassing that my reservation wasn’t valid. They need to be removed from your site immediately.

2017ミシュラン1つ星になっているが、、、下町ピルゼンにあり14種類ものドラフトビールがあります、ただ、シカゴの生牡蠣も超絶ショボい…欧米人が能登の生牡蠣食べたらイスから転げ落ちますな。お料理もランチで判断するに特段良いという訳ではない。。ま、ふだん使いのバーとしては良いと思います。

We were out to see Mandolin Orange at Thalia Hall and decided to have dinner before the show at Duseks for the convenience. We were very pleasantly surprised with a really great restaurant and a wonderful concert venue. We had really well prepaired food and saw a very good show. We'll be back to Duseks and Thalia Hall.

We were visiting Chicago and very excited to eat at Dusek's. This restaurant has the makings of something great, but the service is terrible. We waited at least 1/2 hour to receive our appetizers and then at least another 1/2 hour for our entrees. The appetizers arrived hot and were delicious. Our entrees would have been amazing but for the fact that they were barely warm when we received them. By that point, I was starving and not in the mood to delay my dinner longer by having the waiter send them back (plus just getting the waited to come to our table was a chore). There was never any apology for how long everything took (the restaurant wasn't terribly crowded from 8-10 p.m. on a Sunday night). We left feeling disappointed by the whole experience.

My husband and I visited Dusek's for the second time, to celebrate his recent promotion. I love this restaurant. It is casual, yet high end at the same time. The food and drinks are fantastic, anf the atmosphere is really nice.

Service was great, the server was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. The only downside was the lack of vegetarian options on the menu. Only one vegetarian entree, which felt slightly disappointing. Appetizers and dessert were fantastic.

The initial server we had was not nice. He came across as smug and handed us off to another waiter when he realized that he had upset us with his behavior. The food was very bad. Poor taste and presentation.

Food was great, but the restaurant was almost empty. Unfortunately only one server working which still made the service really slow for our larger party of 8
