We’re proud to be one of Chicagoland’s first craft breweries, firing up our first batch of Paddy Pale Ale back in 1996.
We chose the name Wild Onion in honor of the origins of Chicago’s name. “Che-cau-gua” was the phrase the original inhabitants of the region, the Potawatomi, used to describe the wild onions that grew throughout the area’s wetlands near the shores of Lake Michigan. We loved the imagery of the early French Canadian fur traders paddling their canoes down the Chicago River, surrounded by the distinctly aromatic wild onions as they approached the “big lake”. We believed it was the perfect name for a new brewery with old ties to the city.

Our server was fantastic - friendly and helpful and able to make good recommendations. The food was yummy and the beer delicious! Social distance guidelines were followed, masks were required and sanitizing was frequent. Overall a super night out

Food was OK, beer was good. We sat outside so it was a little loud next to the trains and busses, but we expected that. I usually prefer to sit and eat at the bar, but you know, Covid.

Buffalo cauliflower was a little bland and a little colder than expected. However, the Reuben and the beer were fantastic as usual. Our waitress was also very professional and did a wonderful job.

Went here since they had an open patio. Food was really good. Beer was better. Next to the train station though so you have to pause your conversation occasionally but still a good time. I’d go here again.

We went on Valentine's Day so the atmosphere was energetic. We really liked the special menu that night, as it made the choice simple. Service was really good and we enjoyed the live singer that night. We will return another time for sure.

My partner and I had a terrific Valentines Day dinner at Wild Onion. We both loved the fried pickles, Reuben paninis, and the sides of mac and cheese. The Wild Onion Weltschmerz was a perfect beer accompaniment. Tim, our server, was friendly and attentive. It was our first visit, and it won't be the last. Highly recommended.

Buffalo cauliflower was the best!! Drink selection is minimal and their website is outdated so they didn't have items I had my heart set on. Overall B-

Such a great experience at Wild Onion. We had a large group and put waitress was great, dry attentive but not overbearing, knowlegable on the menu and very friendly and efficient. Everything we ordered off the menu was delish and food came out quickly and together. I would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning!

Great casual “public house” style brewpub. Buffalo cauliflower was great and pastrami Reuben was outstanding — house smoked pastrami was a standout

This was my first visit to Wild Onion Tied House. I went to see a very talented musician perform and quite enjoyed the restaurant. It's very welcoming and intimate, but not too small. The staff is extremely friendly and very attentive. The food and drinks were delicious and I had a very enjoyable night. I would definitely recommend this place and I know I'll be heading back there again soon.
