The food is always good and great beer selection. We usually sit down stairs at one of the bars and the service is good. Don't get seated upstairs as the service is not the same.

We showed up to the restaurant and there was no person to greet us. After being seated a few moments after, we waited for 7-10 minutes for our server. After speaking with a staff member that walked pass our table, still no waiter. Therefore, we ended up walking out of Park Tavern.

Bad experience!!!!!!!!!!

Great for Pre-gaming Blackhawk Games! Discount parking across the street and complimentary shuttle to the United Center. Great selection of beers Specially priced beer of the month is $4. Menu has everything from wings, brussel sprouts, burgers, sandwiches and chicken. Something for everyone.

We arrived a little late but the host was very accommodating. We had a nice table with a view of the game. The server was friendly but busy. I had the beer can chicken which was tender juicy and flavorful. My daughter and her roommate had the shrimp tacos and my wife had a burger. They all liked the food. We then took the shuttle to the United center. It was convenient and the driver was very accommodating. Parking was a real bargain at 5 bucks. I will definitely eat here again!

Went there before a hawks game service was quick which was good as we needed to get to the game - nice atmosphere offer free shuttle to the stadium and reduced parking for parking lot next door. Highly recommend street tacos! My husband thought his burger was a little dry but fries good!

Food and service was good. Disappointed tho when we arrived with a dinner reservation, and hostess tried to seat us at a very small high top. After expressing dissatisfaction they did change us to another full sized table.

we are regulars for the Blackhawks game, so we're quite familiar on the Park Tavern. Food is always good, which we continue to enjoy. The service experience, however, which just so happened to coincide with bringing a friend there for the first time, was absolutely horrendous. In fact, horrendous service might have actually been a step up from what we "enjoyed" this evening. Upon being seated, we waited no less than 12 minutes before a waiter came over, despite seeing other tables being greeted and served in the interim by different waiters/waitresses in the same section. We received our drinks in a timely fashion, and we ordered an appetizer (cheese curds). About 15 mins had passed, our waiter came over to see if we needed drinks, we said no but we're still waiting on the app. He checked on the app, and it came out about 5-7 minutes after that. We enjoyed our app and finished our drinks, but between finishing our app and placing our main food order, it was easily 30 minutes+ without even VISIBLY SEEING our waiter in the establishment, let alone being taken care of. I asked a busboy to find any waiter he could take our order. About 15 minutes after that, our waiter returned to our table and inquired "hey have you gotten your cheese curds yet?". Yes. we have. He then mentioned he was allegedly taking care of a private party upstairs, but this, of course, was news to us at the moment. It was not articulated at any point prior by our waiter that he would be running back and forth, upstairs downstairs etc. The food finally arrived and was good as always. Game was enjoyable as well. We will be returning because it is our tradition, but if this were my first time, which it was for my friend who joined me, I would never return based on the service I received that night. We sat in the booths closest to the bathrooms, our server had Long, shaggy dark hair and thin facial hair. Taller as well.

If you're heading to the United Center to catch a game, this is a great place to grab a bite. When I'm in town for business, I always eat at Park Tavern. The food is very good, and portion size is quite adequate. For slightly smaller portions yet very tasty, I highly recommend the street tacos. Be sure to make reservations, especially if there is a Blackhawks or Bulls game in town -- it'll be busy.

Chose this restaurant as a pre-Bulls game destination as we have eaten at most of the restaurants near the stadium and wanted to try something new. Upon arriving, knew it was a poor choice. No ambiance, felt like eating at a Chili’s. Sat us next to a table right next to a family and when we asked to be moved to a booth, they did accommodate, but with a bit of an attitude. Not horrible, but certainly not memorable or worthy of a 2nd visit.

Good location near United Center, but no parking behind it anymore. They'll give you a validation for garage across the street on north side of Jackson (eastbound) for $5 parking - though mine came out as $11 - maybe because we got there at 4 for a 7:30 game.
No happy hour on game nights.

My fiancé and I made reservations for the night along for other plans we had. We were late to the rest of our reservation plans because at park tavern our order was never place in. About an hour later I notice well the place is getting less pack so how long more is food taking. I ask a different waiter because I never saw the waiter that took our order, and the other waiter said he was going to check it out. Manager came and told us our food had not been placed in but he was going to take care of it. After our food was finally brought to us the manager came ones to our table to ask if everything was okay, yet I expected some kind of discount or so because we were starving and waiting for a whole hour for our food and on top of that we were late to our other reservation for the night. It has been the worse service I have ever received in any restaurant.
