By the time my sister and I got to the place, the kitchen was closed and it was pouring raining outside. You should make it so that people can't make reservations for dinner at a restaurant that isn't serving any food.

The only thing wrong was that I wish they had told us that only the "late night" menu was available when I called them earlier in the day to confirm the reservation. It was 9 pm and we wanted to eat; 9 pm seems early to stop serving the full menu on a Saturday night to me. However, they somewhat made up for this by bringing us a round of free drinks.

We wanted a salad and they ran out of lettuce. Turkey chili has way too much meat. However, our service was excellent.

Amazing burgers!! Had the truffle mushroom burger and my boyfriend had the Mac attack. Honestly we came for the Mac attack and it didn't disappoint. You will not want a burger from anywhere else but here definitely worth the stop.

Excellent and unusual burgers. Lots of menu choices and accommodating when we wanted an item as a side. Friendly staff. Looking forward to visiting on our next trip to Wrigleyville.

OK... where do I begin? I've had issues with this place for years, but keep going back because it's the only place in Wrigely to get a halfway decent actual handmade burger and not a frozen patty. They closed down for the entire winter, literally opening the first day of baseball season. I'm guessing this is due to the astronomical prices during the playoffs affording them to take 5 months off. Good for them, but not good for someone who lives in the neighborhood. You are serving a neighborhood, not just Cubs fans who drive in for games.
They NEVER seem to have specials. I went on a Sunday night. Why are there no specials? Not like it was packed, but again, they seem to cater only to Cubs fans during Cubs games. I even contacted them about it over the off-season, and not surprisingly, received no reply.
They removed the tater tots from the menu, charged me $14 for a burger that the menu says is $12, served me fries that clearly were made earlier in the day, and a burger that likely was as well. Fast service is good, but a burger and fries should take more than five minutes to make and serve no matter how dead it is.
During Cubs games, they will not allow you to order take out unless you come in there and wait for it, the overall level of service is not good (not surprising when they close for 5 months and only have seasonal staff), and they have been shut down for health code violations. The only redeeming quality they have still is that I can have my dog on the patio. I wish that they would focus on bringing a quality product to the neighborhood, but much like the Cubs themselves, they seem to really only care about the money at the end of the day, and unfortunately there are enough tourists who will not care how bad the experience is, when they can be sitting across the street from the wonderful office building that now blocks and hint that there is a baseball park behind it. Let's see if I get a reply to this- HAHAHA

Went here for the Cubs game when they clinched the division. Even though they were busy they were very attentive and friendly. Food was also great!

I had the Farmhouse burger, and it was absolutely amazing! The BBQ pulled pork on top of the patty was so tasty. My friend had the Breakfast for Dinner burger, and she said the sweet taste of the donut with the savory taste of the burger was a perfect combo! I will definitely be coming back!

Great service! Pretty good atmosphere, however we were sat in the bar area next to where everyone walks by and that was kind of uncomfortable. I know they have booth seating in the other room and would have preferred that, especially with a reservation. The food was great, the pizzas were cooked perfectly! Also, there was a great beer selection. Would definitely come back for drinks with friends.
