One of the best happy hours in the city. Everything is great
Awesome service and delicious food. We will be back. Get the burger!!
Funkenhausen continues to deliver an outstanding experience and amazing food. The happy hour menu is plentiful and a great value. The updated dinner menu is outstanding as well. The ribs are a classic that I order every time without regrets. The Nashville oysters are unbeatable. We tried the pork shank for the first time and were not disappointed. We also ordered an off menu squash four ways that was out of this world. Can't recommend this place enough.
The food is so good and original! Service was great and we were very comfortably sat by an open window, feeling very COVID safe.
Ribs were amazing
Amazing food and service. Definitely go for the mimosa boot for brunch it’s not too big! Would ask for not as much OJ if I return.
You can’t go wrong with the pretzel, smoked ribs (white bbq sauce is amazing!!) and the burger is fantastic! Always leave Funkenhausen happy and full! The waitstaff is so incredibly nice, esp John!
We went for brunch this weekend and had a wonderful meal! The food was delicious and the staff was great! Definitely going back!
Love this place! Our favorite happy hour in the city. Rib tips are amazing!
Greeted and promptly sat. Restaurant was very safe, following the rules. Loved their creativeness in separating/distancing tables with plants and various decor. Server was sure to get our happy hour drinks and pretzels in before it was over! Our server was knowledgeable and extremely personable. Everything came out in a timely manner. Everything was delicious!! We’ll definitely be back!!
We arrived outside late night, just for drinks and pretzels. Leaving this review just to share how much I’ve been thinking about those pretzels... SO GOOD.
The drinks were awesome, too. Pretty boozy and a versatile cocktail menu.
Looking forward to coming back for a full dinner, as the smells were so good and tempting, but we were there right before the kitchen was closing. The outdoor seating was cozy and the waiter/staff all extremely personable and welcoming
Fun night out! Everything we tried was tasty! I will return
Food was fine, some parts were over salty which is to be expected with the carb heavy German foods. The waiter had a bad attitude though and it was sad to see on such a beautiful Sunday morning. He came over the first time and we hadn’t decided what we wanted. When we finally decided he came back over and I was going to order for the table, I took a moment to pause on where to start and he stomped off. A few minutes later I see him coming around the side of the building towards us. Made weird remarks throughout the meal. Just bad vibes and not very pleasant to be around.
Saturday night happy hour was amazing!! Servers were kind and fun, great prices for HH, and great quality drinks/apps. Can’t wait to come back!
Amazing, as always!
We love this place so much. Tried the ribeye for the first time and died inside in a good way when we ate it (aka it was delish). Get take out! Dine in! Don’t sleep in this place.
As usual the Funkenhausen team does not disappoint. Their happy hour is a bargain and the reservations were a must (we tried earlier in the week and had to book on open table instead). The tables are distanced, every staff member wears a mask and they have umbrellas to help skate from the heat. Excellent meal and fun cocktails. Everybody loves a fresh baked pretzel.
Food was great, service was fantastic. The quality of food and service was something like you would expect from some of the much higher priced restaurants in Chicago. The attention and care that Funkenhausen has for every aspect of its restaurant was exceptionally high. We highly recommend the pork chops, the ribs (with love as an ingredient), and the fries (yes the fries).
Will definitely be back again.
Sweet corn appetizer is LIFE CHANGING.
Service was the best part of our visit.
This place is top notch. One of the best happy hours in the city. Everything is good, you can’t go wrong.
Delicious food and amazing service! Highly recommend.
Service was great! Food was okay. Pork chop was warm and tough. The mushroom pasta was more like tomato pasta. The chocolate was dry. The broccoli, ribs, and fruit crisp were good.
They have really stepped up their game! Neighborhood gem the burger is one of the best I’ve had.
Our waiter was amazing and the food was great too!
The service and food were excellent. Our sever John directed us to his favorite dishes that evening and didn’t disappoint. Everything was delicious but the ribs and chicken liver are a must. Great special cocktails and attentive staff made it a very special experience
Fantastic restaurant, team and food! If I could eat the pretzel and ribs everyday I would
We love the place and hope they keep it going!
A cute take on German cuisine and very fun decor!
Really a lovely place, our waiter was super fun and very encouraging and the food was AMAZING. Can't recommend enough.
Excellent! The spare ribs appetizer was absolutely delicious!
We went for dinner and sat outside. The service was great. Our server provided great recommendations and each dish was very well prepared. We had the spare ribs and salad to start, the lamb and spaetzle Bolognese, and of course the big cookie for desert. We can’t wait to go back.
One of our favorite spots in Chicago! We found a few of our last fave restaurants Sadly sacrificed on quality since COVID but Funkenhausen is still just as delicious !
I have to preface this by saying that we went right before restaurants and bars were closed due to Covid-19. We were able to get a reservation just before going to eat, and this is probably the reason. I went with my 2 20-something sons to meet my brother-in-law. The decor is trendy, upbeat, and the layout is great! My boys loved the foot, especially the ribs and the chicken. The beer special was great and the variety of all the dishes and drinks was just enough- not overwhelming. I would go back for the atmosphere more than for the food, bot overall, it was enjoyable!
Flippin’ fabulous. Go!!
first time diner, the food is special. trust the wait staff, they are quite good. will certainly be back.
The food was great, the beer boots delicious, and the server attentive. How nice to find a great restaurant like this one!
Mushroom, truffle, and egg with a side of the house sausage is a delightful treat to start a Sunday. The poached egg with the truffle and mushrooms bring out joy, which makes chefs smile when they see the ingredients. This is naturally enjoyed with a white Pinot Noir from Nahe, Germany, as it amplifies the flavors. Delectable!
I only wish you had snitzel that wasn't so spicy. Give people a choice. I am coming back in the evening soon
Highly recommend this place for groups of four and above. It's a fun place to share several dishes. The selections are eclectic, fun and well prepared. This past visit was my second time and I'll be back.
