Awesome brunch spot, walkable from Wrigley. Chilaquiles, totchos, and bistro sandwich were all tasty and full of flavor. The chilaquiles were our table’s favorite dish. We shared a pitcher of blood orange mimosas and those were tasty as well. Service was very good.

Our party had the fish tacos, seared tuna and steak/fries. We had guacamole/chips as appetizer. Everything was cooked to order and very good. Wine and cocktails were great. Our server was very attentive to our needs.
I would definitely go back.

What a great atmosphere for brunch! We each ordered a carafe instead of bottomless and it still felt like bottomless!

I appreciate the feedback Andrew. I can assure you that we obtain our mushrooms fresh and cook them ourselves. I'd love it if you could take a moment and personally email me about your experience with us here at Hutch to address where we might have failed to leave a great lasting impression. Again, thank you for the review and I hope to hear from you soon!

Great Experience! Their Wednesday half-price on flatbread or sandwiches special was able to be used with our Groupon value, so we were able to order an extra dessert. Our Server was excellent.

Boring menu with bland food. The guacamole was particularly bland. It tasted only of chunks of avocado. No wonder it wasn’t busy.

The steak burger and the steak and fries were both really tasty. Perfect dinner out for me and my girlfriend on her birthday. The fries are really tasty, the skinniest cut fries I’ve ever had.

Potato casserole was microwaved and server was very brief while taking our order, always seeming like she was in a hurry even though we were 1 of 2 tables eating. Coffee tasted like it was from a gas station. Only worth it because we had a coupon.

Nice, friendly restaurant with very good food. The atmosphere is always fun and they have a great happy hour. Nice place to relax, perhaps sit outside and enjoy a nice meal. I especially love the turkey burger and the fish tacos are very good. Worth trying for sure and you would go back.

The food was decent. The breakfast wrap I ordered was generous in portions. My friend ordered an omelette and remarked that it was over salted. I worry that we went on an off day, because service was not at all attentive.

At the suggestion of the hosts, I waited at the bar for my friend who was 20 minutes late. I was not once greeted or asked for an order at the bar. (Definitely a lost sale for them). When my friend arrived and we were finally seated, we waited 10-15 minutes before we decided to take matters into our own hands and tell a server passing by that we have not had anyone take our order. He left to tell the other server, who immediately came over to our spot on the patio to apologize. She was not told of the section change. This is understandable. It was not her fault! Unfortunately she never came back to check on our table later after taking our order.

When our food arrived, we discovered that we did not have any utensils. Even though the crowd was thinned out by the time we were dining, It was not a smooth dining experience at all. On top of that, the patrons that were sharing the patio with us were drinking heavily and arguing loudly, causing one of their friends to cry.

Unfortunately I think I've had my fill of this spot. I likely won't return, favoring other neighborhood staples instead.

Went to Hutch for brunch before a Cubs game. Sat outside and appreciated the shade in the summer. Had our service dog with us and the staff was great, treated us like regular customers. The outside patio chairs are not the greatest, but the delicious food makes up for it and comes out quick. Far enough away from the park so you're not by all of the bars but close enough for a 10 minute walk.
They have so many options of mimosas. We tried the mango and white peach, both were great. Wish there was a flight option to taste all of them! Definitely recommend.

Great Neighborhood Place, Dog friendly patio, plenty of street parking. Value price and very good wine list, good old fashion american food. Flat Breads are great, steak and fries are great, server "Frank" is excellent. Great specials, check the website for great deals. Ribs fall off the bone and a GREAT chopped salad.

I went there for my birthday. And I told the lady that I had a reservation. But she didn't acknowledge that it was a birthday being celebrated. But overall I had a good birthday dinner with my mom and sister so that's all that matters.
