American

Point & Feather is a rustic new American concept that focuses on cocktails and darts in the heart of River North. With a bohemian pub flair, the space is conducive to fun and games for a wide range of guests.

The name Point & Feather is a nod to the traditional “point” of the dart and the dart “tail.” With a mind to reinvent the dart bar, the concept integrates the dart boards (12 total throughout the space) into the design. The space is divided into vintage libraries and living rooms, which are ideal for friends to gather with some privacy.

21 & OVER ONLY. Reservations requesting to be seated near a dart board are not guaranteed.

Very great! Wanted to do a fun happy hour with friends before dinner and the darts with drinks was perfect. Great service as well.

I would recommend it because the ambiance and food was awesome, but the serivce....not so much. If you're okay with mediocre and basically rude service then you will like it!

The service was deplorable. Our server was aloof, rarely available and got our order wrong several times. Simple things such as silverware and plates were a foreign concept to her. This lack of service was pervasive.

Service was terrible we waited at the front for a hostess to show up for 10minutes easy. Once we were seated, our server took a drink order and an app order. It was over 30 minutes before we saw her again to place a dinner order and was sucking on our ice cubes since never checked on. I finally flagged someone down but even then they moved like they had no where to be. Won’t be back

Great happy hour prices on food and drink. Waitress kept checking on us and gave us a private area to play darts. It was a perfect spot to talk with friends until bartender turned up music!

I absolutely love point and feather. It’s become a new go to for me and I always enjoy the food so much! My only complaint is that I wish there was someway to help with how loud it is inside but I know there’s not much you can do about that. Love the place and will continue to visit and recommend often!

I had previously went to Point and Feather for an event and it was great. However, I took family out to dinner there and it was horrible. The food came out ice cold and the service was also terrible. We waited over an hour and half for food. The server never came back to bring more water or ask if we wanted more drinks. The manager did give us the meal for free. I will not be going back-terrible experience!

Our server was terrible, I should have got her name, but sadly I didn't. After being seated, nobody came to our table for 15 minutes. I asked the hostess to get our server and finally she came over, looking annoyed that we wanted something. Ordered drinks, when she came back with them, another had joined us. She didn't even look at him and tried to walk away, we caught her and he asked for a bloody mary, she said they didn't have that and walked away. No option to get something else. A couple rounds later, we decided to eat. She wrote down our order, yet managed to screw up two things. Mac and cheese with no jalepeno had them, burger with no cheese had it. We didn't bother trying to send them back, but this time we were just ready to leave. Got our bill, one friend had her's on her own tab. Server tried to run the card, but couldn't get it to work (card worked at the next bar). Not sure how much effort she put into getting that done. Regardless, horrible service and won't be going back anytime soon. Shame since the bar itself is nice and usually a good crowed. Still annoyed by the whole thing, her attitude was so terrible.

Although the vibe and ambiance of the bar is really nice, the service was terrible. On top of the fact that the server was never around and seemed to want nothing to do with us, the restaurant added a 20% service charge on our group of 6 even though we only ordered beers.

My boyfriend and I took our parents here. We reserved a table asking specifically for darts, and the staff made sure to reserve a darts area for us. It was a fun environment for people of all ages. Yummy shareables and plenty of drink options. Music was a little loud, but definitely an energetic bar. And free darts was a definite plus!

Like many other reviews the service was terrible. We had reservations sat down at our table. No one served us. We watched a server sit there and play candy crush and look at us multiplied times. We had menus it was clear we were ready no one once came. We waited 20 minutes before calling from that table another place and making reservations. Don’t come here go to Ramen San eighth down the street. We were served immediately greeted by every employee Ramen San is light years better. I will never go back to point and feather.

Asked for a spot by the dart boards when I made a reservation but when we got there the host said darts can't be reserved and they had a party arriving (an hour and a half later!) so they couldn't seat us there but they did allow us to use the boards for a bit. We only played one round because our drinks and food were all the way across the bar. The whole point of choosing this place was for the darts so a little disappointed there. The food was not impressive at all - it didn't seem to fit the venue as it had more of a dive bar quality (but was presented nicely). The overall ambiance and decor was upscale, except for the dart boards which weren't as high quality as I was expecting (which didn't matter but just seemed out of place compared to the rest of the decor). I think this place would be fun for a large party but didn't enjoy it as much with a small group.

Great place to go for drinks or a late-night out. Not the best for dinner. We arrived and were told that we would have to wait 30-45 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. After waiting 30 minutes, we were told we would have to continue to wait because 2 large groups showed up that took over all the tables. They did end up seating us at the bar instead and comping our drinks, and we appreciated the service. It was incredibly loud, and they came over and turned up the volume on the music which made it further impossible to hear each other talk. We were just not in the right atmosphere for a ladies dinner.

My family and I went during super bowl Sunday! The open bar combined with the tasty buffet was perfection. I have also been here on a regular Saturday night and I was quite impressed by the tasty drinks and the delicious food. Oh and the dart 🎯 boards and pool tables are plus! It’s like a fancy play place for adults!

Figure out your dart board process. It needs to be by reservation.

I had a reservation (made way in advance) for a group of six for a birthday dinner. We were put in a tiny table in front of the very loud DJ booth. We asked to move as we were having dinner & there was not enough space on the narrow table for plates. They moved us to a slightly bigger table. We had two servers (over bearing or non-existent). We all ordered six meals & they came out two meals at a time with a 10 min. gap in between. One of our servers either couldn’t hear or didn’t speak English. We had to point to our meal on the menu. It is very deceiving... you cannot even use the dartboards unless you have a party reserved for a large group (all were reserved in advance). No complementary birthday dessert (had to ask for a candle). The food was actually good. They need to work out a lot of customer service kinks.
