Not good. The food was awful, my wings still had hair/feathers on it. They did refund our meal since they saw we didn’t eat it though. Service good- product bad
Patio is nice. Waitress was very attentive. Nice selection of beer.
Best burger in town!
Food here was wayyyyy over priced. My husband ordered the steak dinner and it was tiny to say the least let alone dried out. The portions are very small and the price tag very big.
There was four of us and everyone of us left hungry. My shrimp tasted freezer burnt. Big disappointment. Will not be going back anytime soon.
Excellent place to eat outdoors. Great food at reasonable price. Service was excellent!
Was excited about the menu, as they had some great choices. However, we will NOT be back after our first experience. Wings... $15. Waitress asks us if we would like blue cheese or ranch. We say ranch. Wings comes with sauce everywhere you go. We get charged additional for dipping sauce, not extra sauce, just one small side to dip our 12 wings and veggies in. Completely ridiculous. I ordered spicy chicken wrap- which was 99% lettuce, a few pieces of tomato and a couple very small chicken chunks. It was almost comical. Had our young son with us, so didn’t have the time or patience to send it back. My husband’s burger was overcooked, standard, and again, overpriced. Every single side is up charged on top of already high prices.
Great patio. Food is a good value. Service was polite. A nice evening 😃
Best patio in Naperville! Great wings and large beer selection!
We’ve found a new favorite in Up North. Lots of brew choices and menu that offers many reasons to return.
Food was delicious and portions were the perfect size. Brian was our server, and he did an awesome job; he was attentive without being annoying. They have a great selection of craft beer. We sat outside, and that was OK, just make sure you get a table that is in the shade, not in direct sunlight. Overall a good experience, will definitely be back!
Good beer & spirits selection. Started with wings & gouda cheese bites. Both very good. Black & Blue burger very good but choice of chips vx fries confusing. Chips are tortilla chips. Philly cheese steak good. Could’ve used some cheese whiz!
Disappointed when they changed our reservation from outside to inside with no choice for us.
Incredible first experience. Will definitely be back.
Nice patio to dine
Great Wings and burger!
My new go-to for food & drink! Lots of outside seating & great food.
Not a brew pub but plenty of tap options and even more bottle/can options.
My wife and I went the other evening for a date night. We sat on the patio, which was lovely. Everything was wonderful and we can’t wait to go back!
They have great food a good prices. We ordered the potato skins as an appetizer and were disappointed to only get three, small, halves of a potato as the complete order! Maybe they ran out of potatoes......
Great time... music!!!
So disappointed. Ordered a steak salad. 3 slim pieces of red pepper, 2 cherry tomatoes cut in half, 3 pieces of cucumber and 4 small pieces of beef, lots of lettuce. And a small container of dressing that was a little more than a tablespoon. Slim Pickens for a salad entree. E
Nice patio seating, good distancing between tables, service was very good and friendly. Food was just so-so. Nice drink menu.
We love Up North! The food is always great. The service was outstanding. Our waitress was attentive, checking in with us throughout the night. The patio is nice and quiet. You do not hear the street or parking lot noise at all. We will definitely be back and recommend.
The service was excellent. The food was superb. Wait staff very kind and attentive. Clean venue. Nice plating and reasonable servings. Decently priced. Overall good experience. Will return.
The Pizza is Excellent. We did outdoor dining and the patio is very relaxing.
Our first dining out experience to kick off Stage 4 in Illinois! Patio was great, food was delicious and the beer menu was extensive. We will be back!
Okay dining experience. Took awhile for food to come out. In regards to the food the chicken avocado sandwich was very good. Also enjoyed the Bavarian pretzel and Mac and cheese bites. Unfortunately, the cheeseburger and mashed potatoes were tasteless. Drinks water downed. Our waiter was very friendly and provided great service.
Nice place, good food.
Great service drying the outside tables and timely drinks!
Place was clean and atmosphere great. Food and service was really good. Will definitely go back.
Surprised to see people dining inside, and surprised to see people coming and going without masks on.
We enjoyed our outside table.
Had very good service.
The Bell’s Amber Ale that I ordered was not what I received. It may have been another Bell’s beer, but definitely not their outstanding Amber Ale.
The grilled Alaskan salmon was good, but a relatively small portion.
great music and atmosphere. the service was great provided the COVID conditoins. congrats to the staff
Love the outside seating. Great wait staff have to try the reeses cookie 🍪
All the staff we encountered were very nice and accommodating when we needed to move inside due to the wind. They didn't make us feel like a bother at all. I had 2 different cocktails that were very good (not a beer drinker). My issue was that none of the food was hot and the amount of shrimp on the shrimp po' boy was just not enough with the heaviness of the bread. The flavors of everything were good but they were just too cold. I will go again though to give it another shot!
We had an awesome server named Brian! He was quick, attentive and friendly. The portion of the food was smaller than we expected. (I only had about 3 shrimps in my shrimp po’boy) but being able to eat outdoors in the nice weather on their patio was worth it
Great food! Cold beer!
Unfortunately we were seated for 13 minutes without being noticed. We did see that 3 tables were seated after us and a server took care of them. We tried to get someone’s attention but no one would even make eye contact. I’m guessing no one knew who was supposed to wait on us. We left and ordered take-out from our local wings place. Probably won’t try this restaurant again.
We loved the outdoor patio with the fire. Service was great, we will be back for sure.
We had a great experience at Up North Ale House!
Noelle, our server, was fantastic! The food was delicious! Looking forward to going again!
