    Perfect place for dinner and drinks before our Blackhawks game. The restaurant is very big, lots of separate rooms. We were seated at a large shared table right away. Their house microbrew draft beer was great. We tried two of their sausage sandwiches - bratwurst and andouille. Both were excellent, and huge - very big portions. Fries came with side of garlic sauce for dipping. The shuttle to the game worked out perfect. It is a van that seats about 15 people. We took it over about 30 minutes before the game. After the game we missed the first shuttle, then waited about 10 minutes for it to return. Luckily it stopped right in front of us so we were able to get right on. On busy nights you may have to wait multiple rounds. Would definitely visit again.

    I love when a server makes you feel Unwelcome. It was like we bothered him by spending money at their restaurant. Try being helpful. Try clearing a plate, when some is done. Don't mess up the order and blame the guests. be at least a little attentive. Food was fine, and I'm sure it would be better if service was better. He wrecked our meal and added 20% tip. I didn't get the chance to under tip, to prove a point. Probably never going back, that's a shame.

    Kaiser Tiger has been a standard for pre-gaming for United Center events, especially the Chicago Blackhawks - solid menu food and cocktail-wise, including craft beers. For the first time, I sat upstairs and my party of 8 had ample space, temps were comfortable, service was solid, I believe 7 individual bathrooms and the food & drink arrived faster than expected, which was fantastic! They have a shuttle to take you to and from the United Center, which for inclement days, makes Kaiser Tiger an easy decision. Thank you to the Kaiser Tiger Team for always taking good care of us! Highly recommended!

    Overall it was Ok, my boss was not happy we were asked to close are tab and move to another area when behind us was 5 empty tables, we could not even hang out at the bar area because of some party. Wish we had the heads up before, but we ended up leaving and really enjoying our time at Randalli's .

    Was very surprised by the food and atmosphere at Kaiser Tiger. I would describe the food as "eclectic". For example, the various sausage options on the menu. I also thought the beer selection was very good. Finally, our server Patrick was outstanding.

    It was our go-to spot before all the Blackhawks games. Sad to say that their vegetarian sausage option disappeared this hockey season so we may have to pivot and go elsewhere from now on. Otherwise, I recommend it if you're good with eating animals.

    From the perspective of someone who has been in the service industry: Server was terrible, inattentive, and fired one of our orders first before the rest (by accident I assume) but one person had their food 5-10 minutes ahead of the rest of the table. Didn’t ask how the food was or check in, we had to go up to the bar to get napkins and silverware because the server was nowhere to be found. I would have understood if our server was hustling around because it was busy but anytime I saw them it was just them running glassware between the kitchen and bar. This was my only bad experience I’ve had here. Usually it’s great.

    Food came out quick and hot. Fries were barely seasoned, beer cheese lacked favor, pesto chicken sandwich was really good. Pricing does not reflect quality. Service was great and quick even when it was getting busy before the Blackhawks game. It was ok but not sure if I’ll be running back

    Came here with a group of 8 friends before a concert. Kaiser Tiger offers a free shuttle to the United Center for games & concerts, so that was convenient. They have a good selection of beers, wine, and cocktails. Sadly, the food took an hour to arrive. Our large soft pretzel arrived rock hard. Due to the long wait for our dinner, we were late to the concert. We ordered salads, bacon-wrapped dates, fries, wraps, and sandwiches, which were all fine. I suggest either arriving very early or just coming for drinks.

    We made reservations got seated then about 30 mins into our dinner we were asked to move our table so that they could accommodate another party. We moved but then our service went down hill. We had to get up and ask for condiments once our food arrive. We ordered a drink and 25 mins went by, finally my husband got up and found our waiter and the waiter said he put the drink order in but guessed he’d have to go make it if we wanted it. WHAT?!? Needless to say we just asked for our check and left. Horrible experience.

    This was the worst restaurant experience I have had in my entire life. We didn’t really have a server. She thought someone else had the table, and would ask if we needed anything, then say she would send our server over, and no one would come. We had to go to the bar to get drinks and only got about half the food we ordered. I asked for a paper check so we could see what was on it, and it had about $200 worth of things we didn’t order. The manager offered to get us a round of shots, as if that should make up for the terrible experience. This place doesn’t care about its customers and I would recommend avoiding it at all costs.

    Food was okay. Portions are kind of all over the place. It's a cute, quiet lunch spot during the week, not a lot of activity beyond the blue collar guys coming in for lunch from the neighborhood places. Mac and cheese could use some more seasoning, and maybe a bake in the oven tho.

    Our server was excellent, however the restaurant was extremely warm and uncomfortable . The noise levels were also extremely loud and could use some sound dampening indoors. Schnitzel sandwich and pork belly sandwich were both well prepared.
