Went around 5:30 on a Sat. night. Place was moderately full and got busier until fairly full around 6:00. However, most of crowd must have been stopping by for drinks only since by 6:45 the place was almost cleared out. It was very warm in the bar, but I suppose they know their clientele since most of the women were only half-dressed in spite of cold weather outside. Food was only moderate, beer choices adequate, service okay. VERY loud music made talking difficult unless you were willing to SHOUT, but since many patrons seemed more than willing to do so, the noise was extreme when the place was full.
For a large group and during the badger game, we had a great server that was always available and got everyone’s orders right!
Badger vs Miami Orange Bowl. Google and Yelp search both reccomended this as a Badger Bar and it was GREAT
Service sucked, girl had a major attitude and rolled her eyes at us for asking for a glass of ice. food was okay but there are better places to go to eat.
The brunch is really good here- make your own Bloody Mary is a great deal and really fun!
We were celebrating a co-workers going away party. They comfortably sat 15 of us, and our waitress Britney was amazing. She made sure we were well fed and kept the drinks flowing.
The service was terrible. The waitress was over talking to someone who I think was the manager while her tables are going dry on drinks. I was really looking forward to trying the short ribs. We decided to leave after our beers were dry for 20 minutes.
Disappointing menu on open table was not accurate.
Great food & service!
Was here last year and everything was on point, but on this visit, it wasn't up to par. Our server looked like she wanted to go home, and with NO ONE in the restaurant, she couldn't split the check for a few of us. Great beer selection and the food wasn't bad. Stay away from the soft pretzel as an appetizer, it was awful. Considering the number of choices for pubs in Chicago, it will be awhile before I'm back.
Went for a date with my bf! Food was good and great beer selection :)
This was my birthday lunch with friends. Love the comfort food and the Moscow Mules!
We had show tickets at the nearby Chicago Theater, and chose Stout for it's reputation as a craft beer bar. While we had table reservations, we ended up sitting at the bar because there was ample seating available. We happened to get there during Happy Hour, which definitely proved to be valuable. Not only were the majority of their beers only $3.00, they had sliders and shrimp tacos for $2.00. All of the above were amazing! I saved the best for last, as their Moscow Mules (normally $12.00) were a paltry four bucks! While I"m not a Moscow Mule expert, I have had a few, and these were by far the best I have ever had. For a quick bite, especially during happy hour, this is definitely work a look.
This was my second visit to Stout. Love the Bloody Mary bar and comfortable ambience. We were seated by the open windows on a perfect breezy spring Sunday. ☀️
Every food item we've ordered has been great! Friendly and attentive staff. Highly recommend!
I have been to Stout for drinks only a few times and always enjoyed it however I just tried their food for the first time and I was really blown away! I expected to get standard bar food but my sandwich was amazing and my friend's Salmon was delicious! This place does get very loud on Friday and Saturday nights when they're busy, but being able to reserve a booth so easily on here makes it great for groups of 6-7!
