Brunch is a real treat to the public and the ham biscuit at Funkenhausen is a step above the word treat. Crispy potatoes along side a fluffy biscuit topped with thinly sliced ham, pimento beer cheese, mornay sauce and an over easy egg (chef’s recommendation) with a drizzle of hot sauce will have you grunt in pleasure while eating. Anyway, if you are brunch fan this is a must try. Exquisite!
Fantastic spot! Really inventive menu and great fresh food. Will be back to try more things and get a beer in a boot glass!
Loved the food, service, and atmosphere! Thanks!
The food at this restaurant is great as it is at most restaurant we eat at. The real Gem of this place was John our server. It's been many years since I seen a server with such professionalism accuracy and passion for the place that he works at. The reason we showed up again to funkenhausen was because of John and will be the reason we will be returning. So my recommendation is to request John as your server and I hope you have as good a time as my wife and I have had and will have in the future at this fabulous Chicago restaurant.
Wow! This place was wunderbar! I just knew from the moment me and my girlfriend walked in that this place was going to be the one. We connected and enjoyed dinner here so much, that we may have looked in apartments across the street. The menu had many items you could not go wrong with, so for the majority of our selections we went with our server recommendations. From our first bites, everything was melt-in-your-mouth and full of flavor. Our two favorites out of the six dishes we got were the Surfenturfen & Heirloom Tomatoes. But everything we had from start to finish, is much worth coming back for and much worth you trying for the first time! Highly recommend and I promise you won’t regret it!
This is our go-to option! Always a great meal and experience.
My friends and I had loved this place! Pricey, but delicious and the service was great. Will be back for sure!
Got seated at the bar and the bar tender decided to ignore us for 20 min after drinks were served. He made eye contact with us a couple times and decided to look away — and no he wasn’t busy making drinks. He was more attentive after we made a comment to the host.
We love this neighborhood gem but were really taken aback by this unusually bad experience.
The service was great, as was the food and atmosphere. It was relaxed and fun, and each of the staff seemed focused upon providing the best experience for their diners. We will be back, and soon!
Wonderful fusion of southern and german cuisines. Excellent service and comfortable environment both inside and out.
Great food and atmosphere. Everything we ordered was delicious and we will be going back.
Great beer options! Service was great, food came out quickly.
The broiled oysters were excellent, as was the spaetzle. Don't bother getting the zucchini 'schnitzel' - so not worth the $$
Feels a kind of like they plopped a Bavarian beer hall into the Chicago hip dining scene. Very friendly fun vibe. The food is an adventure, and although you'll be tempted to order a beer, their wine list is awesome! Try a dry riesling...
Everything was great! Loved everything - from the drinks/food to the thoughtful service.
Was fascinated by the idea of mashing-up German food, beer hall vibes and southern cooking. It was delicious and the atmosphere was lots fun!
Everything was wildly delicious, the service was so friendly (including sending a few free dishes our way), and we had the best time catching up with friends while stuffing our faces.
If you are looking for a bit of Germany with a side of funky, then you should check out Funkenhausen. A nice selection of beers and cocktails. The beers are served in glass boots, which is fun. We started with the Surfenturfen and the Spaetzle, which were both delicious. My SO had the swordfish and I had the schnitzel with a side of the sauerkraut. Everything was well prepared and delicious. I don't know what some of the other reviewers were eating, but we were stuffed. The schnitzel was bigger than the plate. The desserts were also good and substantial portions. John, our server, was fantastic. Looking forward to a return to Funkenhausen.
Worth it! This place is phenomenal
Second time visiting, food and service was excellent again, Will be returning for a third time at a minimum.
Small portions (mussels)
Schnitzel was burnt and could not cut
Great service! Food came quickly and was delicious! Stand outs are the eggplant schnitzel, oysters, pretzel and spatzel! Skip the pork schnitzel and fries…the other dishes are so tasty!
Loved this place!! Great food and service! Would highly recommend!
Overall I really enjoyed my visits (3x). All of my visits have been during happy hour and the deals are great. The burger was a little salty but I think it’s due to bacon and dijonnaise (both times I ordered it). I ordered pretzels 2x: 1st time delicious and buttery 2nd time a bit over cooked and a bit dry. I ordered mussels and they were good but I have had better. I love the vibe, wait staff and drinks, definitely worth a happy hour visit.
This place never disappoints. There is always something new and creative on the menu, and I’m always blown away! So glad to have Funkenhausen so close…cause the cocktails rock too. And the service…somehow they make attentive professional service easy and fun.
The food was absolutely fantastic. Really enjoyed our server as well. Will definitely be back soon. Wow. New favorite restaurant in Chicago.
amazing dinner with friends. The bartender and hostess staff were also extremely friendly
Birthday celebration, party of five. We had superior service by John and others. The food was great....we ordered about 10 side dishes and shared. Eggplant shnitzl and the pork shoulder we SO good. We will be back!!!!
Funkenhausen was amazing! The food was delicious, lots of options, and really nice staff. Our waitress, Lauren, was amazing! We wanted schnitzel and didn't realize they didn't have it at brunch, but were so satisfied with everything else we ordered, it didn't matter! Thanks, Lauren!!
Awesome! Great change of pace!
Great ambiance and really enjoyed their drinks! Loved their happy hour and the peel and eat shrimp were scrumptious!
Fantastic! Great food, great service. Wonderful beer. top notch.
Dinner with friends outside. Food was delicious from appetizers to dessert. Great beer and drinks. But the service made the evening. We had a wonderful, fun server and the support staff are just as good. Highly recommended. We’ll be back soon.
Dinner was fantastic! Staff was beyond amazing. Our server was top notch and everything we ate was delicious.
Great ambiance and a very enjoyable evening. Delish food and drinks.
The staff is lovely but we won’t be back. For us the concept of the restaurant isn’t very strong and would be great as a less pretentious German restaurant with sausage and beer and other good stuff. Super expensive and we left still hungry
Hopping inside, mellow outside. Delicious food and drinks both places. Everything prepared creatively, in combinations that work. Ribs were classically delicious. Very friendly and considerate server.
Really friendly and prompt service on a busy Sunday brunch.
Everything is good. My favorite spare ribs in the city. Incredibly spice rub and white bbq sauce. Tried the short ribs, and was blown away. So many things on the menu would not typically catch my eye, but things like the baked oysters are incredible. Never missed on this menu.
Great service and ambience! Food was very interesting with creative combinations of flavors. Tasty and savory
Everything was very good, and we were seated immediately. Service prompt and attentive. My big complaint was the sheer cost of the meal. Knowing what we purchased, it just seemed overly priced.
