Barbecue
For close to 30 years, Sheffield's Beer and Wine Garden has been known for pioneering the Chicago craft beer movement and more recently for it’s authentic in-house smoked BBQ. Check out our encased hickory smoker where we smoke everything from baby back ribs to beef brisket! Sheffield’s offers many craft beers on draft, over 100 in bottles and a huge vintage collection. We have transitioned to contactless menus by using QR Codes. Currently, reservations for up to 6 people per party can be only accepted. All reservations are for 90 minutes. While dining with us, please practice social distancing and proper face mask etiquette while on premises and when interacting with staff, ordering, and receiving food and beverages.
Minors must be accompanied by a parent. We have no ability to store strollers, scooters, bikes or skateboards and no children are allowed after 7pm. We only allow Service Dogs to enter into the business. We have access for handicap.

Sheffield's is our go to spot here in the windy city! Their food is amazing and their bbq is out of this world! We always receive great service even if the restaurant is full. Sheffield's also does a great job of complying with COVID rules and we feel safe and comfortable eating here. Go Sheffield's!

Everything was great! The dessert was disappointing, but we probably were just expecting more than a store bought frozen ice cream pie thing, but it was fine. It would be nice if they got a couple heaters for the patio outside of the covered section so we didn’t have to sit next to the screen to be warm, but it was a nice time overall!

wonderful service--I felt like they were doing a really good job at handling COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines. this was the first restaurant I'd been to since March and I absolutely felt comfortable on their patio. I was impressed right off the bat when they swiped my card to open a tab and before giving it back sprayed it with a disinfectant. They're doing things right and I appreciate it! Would definitely recommend going to Sheffield's :-)

Sheffields is the "bar standard" for how to run a bar/restaurant during the COVID19 restrictions. From the online reservation, to the sanitation station to the 90min limit, and all with exceptionally pleasant service from all the staff. Their smoked wings are the best in the city. Full Stop. The beer menu is always adventurous and our waitress was extremely helpful in steering us towards a choice. The beer garden is beautifully kept and it exceeds the CDC recommendations. Sheffields is a treasure and this was a fantastic evening.

I walked in with my dog who is 7lbs and registered as an emotional support animal. They let me know that it was only ok for her to sit at our reserved table on the patio if I had her paperwork. I was able to present that to them and they seemed disappointed that I had it. We sat at our table and my two other friends who also have ESAs joined me (and presented their paperwork). As we were sitting there, the “owner” a very unprofessional man named Rocky approaches our table and states that one of the dogs was “not acting as any ESA that he’s ever seen” we went back and forth with him for about 5 minutes as he began screaming at us in front of all of the other guests. We eventually decided to just leave and he more or less pushed us out the door. My friend started recording on her phone because his behavior was that uncalled for, and he took his finger and covered the camera lens. This was not the first time I have been treated disrespectfully in this establishment, but it will definitely be the last.

Sheffield's has really gone down hill from that friendly neighborhood beer garden. For one, their Open Table profile said they were still taking parties of 6+, insinuating that parties of 7 or more had 2 hours at the table.. that was not the case. Our party was forced to sit at two tables, which was fine and all worked out, but our waitress was incredibly rude about it and continued to have a terrible attitude every time we interacted with her. It was as if none of the staff actually wanted to be there and we were a huge inconvenience to them for attempting to dine at Sheffield's. The food was awful - I have had the veggie burger time and time before and this time it was cold, with a few pieces of something very hard (??) that I was forced to spit out. I know these are hard times for the restaurant industry, but Sheffield's is not doing anything to entice people to want to patron their restaurant, in fact they are doing the opposite. Will not be back.

Good social distancing on patio for people taking pandemic seriously.
Sides pretty small.
Decent beer choices, draft and bottle.
Laughed a bit when bartender seated us and asked if we know how to use QR code. We are not millennials so maybe he assumed we were clueless.

Our group of three sat outside and enjoyed the Dine on Sheffield. Our server was incredibly attentive and helpful. Our order were taken in a timely manner, and she offered helpful recommendations. The pub food is very good, but the highlight of the event was the outstanding service.
