The host was so rude it was almost hilarious. Our server was slow and inattentive. The food couldn’t compensate for the terrible service.

It was one of the worst service experiences we've had dining in Chicago. We made a reservation for 5:30 and were able to be seated around 5:20. It's not a big place but it was obvious from the start that the one server working was struggling. We placed food and drink orders around 5:30 and then the waiting begins. Drinks were brought out 10-15 mins later. An hour after placing our order for three burgers, we finally get our food. I had to ask for condiments for our burgers and fries. The server returns with a mustard, mayo, and only one ketchup for the three burgers and fries we were eating. I immediately asked for more ketchup and we waited close to 10 minutes. The table next to us ordered dessert after our request was made and they received their dessert before we got ketchup. I had to get the attention of another worker to finally get ketchup. I also mentioned to the original server that my wife didn't like the wine she recommended but it fell on deaf ears. I expressed my dissatisfaction to the server and she responded service isn't usually like that. She brought the check and it wasn't correct. My daughters meal was suppose to be free since kids eat free and it was still on the bill. She brings a corrected version and i go to pay and the gentleman from behind the bar offers to comp the drinks for our troubles.

My wife loved her Impossible Burger and my daughter devoured her kids meal burgers. My burger was also good. I can't imagine going back when there are so many other places in Andersonville that don't have the same issues.

Chicken and waffles. Very well made, although I didn’t love the butter served with it. A bit bitter. My friend had the avocado toast. Looked delicious! They were great with my kids, accommodating and very cool. Easy to park. Nice ambiance.

We actually stopped into Hutch the night before to get an idea about their brunch menu. Fell in love with the ambiance & staff immediately and decided to stay for dinner in that moment. Food and Service were both amazing and we left there very much looking forward to the next days brunch with the family!
Sunday Brunch was amazing, delightful, fun and filling! My daughter and future son-in-law are both in the food service industry, Samantha a bartender/server & Greg a chef, so they both REALLY know and appreciate good food, drinks & service. They were both super impressed and, yes, they purchased a six- pack for the kitchen staff! Since dining there Saturday & Sunday I have told about 6 people to check out Hutch! We’ll definitely be back!

Hutch Andersonville didn't hit on all points compared to its Lakeview sister we've been to multiple times. That being said it was still good. The low points were service was slow; as well, food delivery and the restaurant wasn't busy. My husband ordered a salty dog, which was good albeit the salted rim was a bit heavy. We had a glass of Meiomi Pinot Noir, was hoping for the 2016, but the 2017 came out and it was still quite good, and was priced very reasonably -- a high point most of the wines were reasonably priced compared to usual mark up from retail. The food was very tasty. We had the Hitch Fries as a starter / compliment to the salads we ordered -- truffle fries with briscuit, cheese and other deliciousness -- the fries could have been a bit more crisp. We had the chopped salad with chicken and steak wedge salad. Steak was cooked nicely and both salads were otherwise tasty. We'd go back.

Outdoor seating in warmer weather amazing. Drinks were delicious and nicely poured. Lively atmosphere. Negative was we were seated for over 15 min before we got asked for drink orders and then it took time for them to arrive. Once we got orders in everything sped up and improved. We will be back.

I was there on April 18 and April 20. On April 20th, I walked in the door and waited awhile before I was greeted by anyone. I had a reservation. I ordered an appetizer while I was waiting for a friend. The waiter forgot to place the order because it took 20 minutes before we received the appetizer. I ordered the Kitchen bowel with salmon for the entree. It was delicious.

On April 20th, there was a gentleman waiting to greet guests, and I was directed to my table immediately when I walked in the restaurant. Hutch was not that busy, but it took a long time for us to receive the order. We were not sure why the order took so long.

The drinks here are better than the food. Food was very basic and failed to impress in any of the ways you would expect. The cheese ball appetizer had great chips, with a hard, typical of a potluck, boring cheeseball.
I had chicken chopped salad, and one of the most boring chopped salads I have had, with no flavor, and dry chicken. My companion had a burger, and it was a basic boring burger. The worst was the dessert, cherry pie, which tasted like a microwaved piece of grocery store pie.
Definitely does not earn its price point.

Had a hamburger and fries. Hamburger was boring and undercooked. The "seasoned" fries were average tasty, but I expected more than just salt, on a "seasoned fry". Diet Coke tasted like cleaning supplies. Staff was nice and did their job adequatly.

We stumbled upon Hutch American Kitchen + Bar when looking for a restaurant near the Chicago Magic Lounge [note: if you've never been to the CML, you should go. Great place]. We're from the northern suburbs and did not know the neighborhood so I checked Google Maps and Hutch was the closest restaurant to the venue. What a great find. Super friendly staff, casual dining room that had a very homey feeling to it and reasonable prices. The menu was not too big which I always like since I think it's better the kitchen does a few things really well than try to a lot of things mediocre. The options were broad enough to give my vegan wife a few choices. She had the quinoa salad which was great and another person in our party got the salmon with farro. Both portions were quite large.

Overall, I highly recommend Hutch. They have a nice outdoor seating area too, though it was too cold for us when we went.

We made a reservation through Open Table roughly 2 weeks ahead of time because this restaurant was close to Chicago Magic Lounge. I actually went on Open Table the day before the reservation and modified the time by 15 minutes. We were in an UBER 10 minutes away from the restaurant - to arrive several minutes BEFORE our reservation when they called on our cell phone saying they “didn’t realize the restaurant was booked for a private party the entire night” and they would not honor our reservation. We had tickets for a show so it was important that we had a place/time to eat to make our showtime. We were left scrambling at the last minute trying to find a restaurant. How did they not know for weeks ahead of time - or at the very least a few hours ahead of time - that they wouldn’t honor a reservation?
