    Alex was our waiter. He was very attentive and paced our meal appropriately. We appreciated his collaboration with the bar tender when selecting our beer flight. The food was excellent. The cheese curds were light, not greasy and served appetizingly fresh and ready to eat. My husband and I enjoyed our burgers. Both were cooked to perfection. We enjoyed that the burgers maintained their integrity with each bite; they did not fall apart. The French fries were some of the best we’ve had; crunchy outside and appropriately soft on the inside. The serving of fries was excellent; not an overwhelming portion. For dessert, we had the peanut butter pie. IT WAS DELICIOUS. Thank you Alex for a wonderful lunch experience. This was our first time at the Pour House and we will be back!

    We LOVED the menu names and selections. So much to choose from. The Jon Bun Jovi cinnamon roll with orange glaze was amazingly delicious. The Peach Mimosas are a must! We liked everything about this place and the music background enhances the experience.

    Usually love Pour House to watch any big game. Went last night for Boston-Miami Game 7. Not sure if they were just short-staffed, but the service was the worst I've experienced. Took someone 20+ minutes to bring us water (and we had to ask a busboy to bring us water after our server disappeared completely). My food came out 15-20 minutes after my friends' food arrived. I placed a to-go order and they left off one part of that order. They brought out an incorrect order of chicken eventually, which I again sent back to be corrected. The manager who was helping us was nice, and comped that part of our bill, but overall it was not a good night in terms of service.

    The manager was absolutely horrible. She spoke to us in a condescending entitled tone. We ordered a large beer, not knowing you couldn’t drink it there. Our waitress didn’t mention this and it’s not noted on the menu. The manager rudely told me to stop drinking it and proposed no solution. After that we had no service whatsoever. On the check there was a 5 dollar surcharge with no explanation. I complained about it and it was removed with a horrible attitude. The food and atmosphere are great but the manager ruined the experience.

    We were looking for a casual restaurant for a burger and beer. The wait staff was very attentive. The selection of beers on tap was phenomenal. Food was reasonably priced and tasty. We even received a sample appetizer (Buffalo Chicken Dip) as we were first time customers.

    Went for an engagement party where the groom-to-be had reserved a number of tables. The hostess and manager were both incredibly rude the whole time, demanding we stay away from nearby tables despite our large and growing group, all of whom were being responsible, respectful, and spending money on an easily coordinated single tab. I attempted to get a reservation for the nearby tables to give us room to expand the group and the hostess was incredibly rude and demanded that I could only have my reservation in a completely different part of the restaurant despite the restaurant being nearly empty. She and the manager absolutely refused we use the nearby tables because “they needed them for the other guests” - however the restaurant remained half empty the entire time we were there. It was an insane and ridiculous experience, terrible service, and I won’t be back.

    I came here for the rock and roll brunch- it was fantastic! The food was reasonably priced (all brunch meals under $17), came in big portions, and tasted wonderful. The atmosphere is lovely and super fun, I’m not a drinker but seems like an awesome place for beer lovers and/or to watch a sports team. Our waitress was lovely and super accommodating. Amazing value for Chicago, especially Old Town!
