We went here because we were seeing a show next door. The food was decent and the service was excellent although we were the only ones in there from 6:30-7:30 on a Monday night.
We went at 5:30 but restaurant was closed. Only bar was open. No kitchen!
Food was good. Vegan and vegetarian choices. Pork belly tacos from specials menu was excellent.
Totally friendly and fun service. Great food, good value. Neighborhood go-to spot.
I insisted my poached eggs arrive runny and they arrived as requested. Thank you
we came here bc this was one of the restaurants that was listed as "partnered" with the chicago podcast event, and we were led on to believe in the email from the theater that we'd get some sort of discount by dining with one of these partnered restaurants. we didn't get that, it was for the performers only. next time be more clear in the offer because we definitely would not have dined here if we knew that to be the case. the food was average. the waiter was real nice, but the food was so subpar.
Sorry --- it was a bust !! We allowed 1 1/4 hours before theater (2 blocks away) and the hostess said the ever-responsive NO PROBLEM!! After giving our order, we sat -- and sat -- and sat!! When we had 20 minutes left, we said we would have to leave -- Suddenly they were surprised!!! Our meal was READY -- we didn't have TIME to eat it!!! We horsed-down part of it and left -- and came late to the theater.
The service was great but the food was bad. I ordered the roasted tomato and sausage penne toss. It tasted and looked like frozen TV dinner pasta. The sausage looked bad and tasted even worse. The meat was mushy and odd looking. I can't even remember the last time I didn't finish a meal let alone avoid sausage. To top it off it cost me 12 bucks. I can get the same dish from Noodles and Company, a fast food restaurant, for 8 bucks and it's apsolutely delicious. Otherwise, my dining experience was fine. I will not be returning.
Food was pretty good & there was a quiet ambiance before my husband & I went to a show at Schubas. Their website says you get a free mini-mac when you reserve a table, but the host was quick to seat us as I told her we had a reservation. No one said anything about the mini-mac offer during our dining experience. Our meal was fine & ended up filling us up enough, but I still think it's weird that they would promote something only to not follow through with it.
We headed here after the Cubs rally before my friends were meeting up somewhere else at 3pm. I made the reservation and we walked down Southport. We walked in the door and the hostess told us that they were closing. I told her that we had just made a reservation and she said she would check with her manager and told us that the owner was hungover and wanted to close. This was at 1:30!!! The manager sat us after speaking with the kitchen and a quite a while later the server, who had lost her voice, came to get her order... but we hadn't even yet been given menus! We ordered and did enjoy our food but by the time we finished we were the only people in the restaurant which is seriously uncomfortable. I checked again on their hours and their OpenTable which gave no indication of their closing. Really disappointing experience.
New server was a little green but friendly and helpful
Great food and friendly staff
Would come back again
Great beer selection, best Mac and cheese in the city
We were meeting friends for a brunch before walking down the street to The Athenaeum for a show. This was noon on a Sunday. The weather was nice, so we sat outside - the outside seating is close to the street, but it didn't seem to be a problem. Service was prompt, solicitous, and friendly. We all had breakfast meals- mostly egg dishes. The food didn't take that long to arrive; everything was hot, and there was more than we could finish. (If you order an egg dish that comes with hash browns, "substitute" the fruit bowl: a nice portion of fresh fruit, and we still got the hash browns!) We weren't in any big hurry to leave, and the staff just kept filling our water glasses. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.
Came from Slinger and Milw to see Sister Sparrow . Server needs to value customers time and not trap them at thr table. She was nice and helpful but too casual/slow. She has Blue hair. This can happen when under staffed. Might be a management issue. Overall we enjoyed the place and the band of coarse.
Really good food as well as kid friendly menu. Professional staff.
The food is awesome. I had a quinoa black bean and beet burger that was one of the best non-meat burgers I've ever had. We'll definitely be going back.
Schuba's was a great walkable neighborhood restaurant. I'd recommend the crab cake salad...it was excellent!!
Menu was interesting, not your typical bar fare. The pulled lurk was very good as was the quinoa salad and chicken and Brie sandwich.
Katie was our server and did an excellent job. Sweet and enthusiastic. Ask for her.
First time at Schubas.
I had the Ohoney Chicken Brie sandwich which was very good. Waitresses were very pleasant and attentive. My wife and I enjoyed eating outside and relaxed while we waited for the Cimorelli concert inside to be completed, which our teenage daughter and her friend were attending. The price of the food and drinks were very reasonable. Overall, a great experience.
We were going to a show at the nearby Athaneum theater. On the Athaneum web site, this restaurant was advertised as giving 20% off food. When we mentioned our tickets to server, she came back telling us that we would get a free Mac and cheese. Not the 20% off. Two of the 4 in our party are lactose intolerant, one is low carb and the other is more a fan of Kraft Mac and cheese so it was wasted on us and not what we expected. I could have made a fuss but that's not me. Food ok for what I was expecting (not gourmet, just somewhere to eat before the show).
Went there 1:30PM on a Sunday, and could not get a lunch menu, only brunch. I particularly did not want brunch, which is why we skipped the Harmony Brunch. This was not made clear on the website. The servers and people there were very nice, but the food was meh, kind of flavorless. Really wanted to like it there, but won't go there just to dine again.
I honestly had known about Schubas for 30 plus years, but only as a place for music.
Recently, I read where they had a very good brunch on the weekends, and it's true.
There are many choices on the menu. Our group of 5 all seemed to enjoy their meals
and their drinks. Our server Daniel was exceptionally good. We'll definitely return.
Awesome outdoor seating!!
Ordered Mac and cheese (one of their signature, customizable dishes) and it was terrible. Will not return.
Brunch before a Cubs game was delicious, as was the bloody mary and coffee.
Great place for brunch can't wait to try their diner.
Restaurant very accomadating. Comfort food in a relaxed atmosphere.
Unique omelets, attentive staff and quality live music. Came before the crowd at 11am on a Sunday and had place to ourselves for a bit. I recommend the Mario omelet!
A very convenient place to have dinner before a concert at Schubas. Out waiter was great.
The waiter was great.
Nice place, casual atmosphere, very good food, variety includes vegan, vegetarian, as well as meat, chicken, etc. High quality ingrediants. Ample variety of beer choices, although not very extensive list.
Great find down the street from Theater Wit. Service was excellent. Ford was delicious, with the exception of the the stew which was very tasty although way too spicy for stew . 4 stars instead of 5 for the extra spice not listed on the menu. Will definitely return.
I was shocked by the quality of the food. Hopefully a bad day for a long time neighborhood location. Tater tots had no taste and looked to have suffered from freezer burn. The reuben was horrible. Each of us left half of the meal uneaten and went somewhere else to get something edible. Disappointing for what appeared from a review of the menu to be an elevated take on comfort food.
Service was prompt but almost 20 minutes for burger and ckn strips. But we know it was prepared fresh and probably worth the xtra service time.it was very good. Loved the tater tots
We haven't been to the Grill in years. Reservations were made so easy on line, we got a great parking place, and everyone was so friendly.
Our server Chris was wonderful. the food, we had the fish and chips , was outstanding.
A large family came in right after us and we watched as Chris was very attentive with the children as well as adults.
Best Onion Soup ever.Everything we ordered was excellent.
I was heading to Schubas for a 9:15 concert on Sunday night and decided to have dinner there. Sunday night is probably not the night to head there for "ambiance" the dining room was empty, but the food was classic - Tater Tots!!! Yahooooo. Bar was hopping and the music afterwards was great. For basically a neighborhood bar/music scene, you can't beat this place...unless you need tv to have a good time.
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. We both loved the meal and the atmosphere. Our server Chris even got us a free desert for her birthday! We will be back for sure...
They don't serve lunch until 3 on the weekends if you sit on the Tavern side you're lucky if you get any service, the bartender takes your order but is too busy tending to her customers at the bar.
We went to Schuba's for their brunch and were not disappointed. The food was great with a large variety of brunch options, both sweet and savory. Their drink specials were good, too - Bloody Marys and mimosas of course, but they also had a "breakfast beer" option that was an interesting take on a lunchbox - it was very tasty! Our waitress was very attentive and split our checks without asking. And the best part is that their brunch starts at 9 AM, which can often be difficult to find with other restaurants in the area.
