Wonder, why open table allows 3 aces to use their bookings system. They do not credit the reservations.

My husband and I went to Three Aces for dinner. We shared the meatball appetizer, three aces burger, and pepperoni pizza. Everything was delicious. The burger was cooked perfectly and the fries have a great seasoning on them. The pizza was delicious as well. We would definitely go back, especially in the summer because they have a nice patio area.

My husband and I drive all the way from McHenry to have their burgers. I honestly think they are one of the best burgers in the city. They also have a great list of cocktails and other menu items. There isn't anything I have not liked about this place thus far and have been there a handful of times.

By the looks of the place, you would never guess how good the food is! First, there's a nice beer/beverage list, and a few tasty bar snacks to choose from. Unbeknownst to us, 3:30pm on a Sunday is still brunch time, so my husband had steak & eggs, which he thought was outstanding. I ordered a margarita pizza. The crust was nice and crisp, and the sauce/cheese was super fresh. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I stopped here because we had previously attended the Taylor Street festival this summer and Three Aces had a booth where we tried their Bolognese Fries for the first time -- SCRUMPTIOUS is the word! Thus we went back this past Saturday before the comedy show at the United Center to eat. We ordered, of course, the Bolognese Fries and their Risotto appetizer. The Bolognese fries were just as scrumptious as in the summer -- unfortunately the Risotto appetizer was so bland, no real taste, just like eating sticky white rice with a fried shell. Too bad, because the description made it sound just as wonderful and tasty -- not at all. I landed up eating three bites (actually two, but I took one last bite to validate), my husband had two bites and we both had the same opinion - Blah! We did not eat the rest of it, didn't make a big deal at all to our server due to time constraints. I'd go back but will never order that again. Service was good, drinks were decent.

We thought that it was a restaurant, but were seated in a bar. The food was very good, I had the smoked pork chop, but really bad service. No description of the menu from the server and very little attention if any. Honestly, probably won't go back. Reasonable prices though.

Their menu is very limited but the food was tasty. The drinks were a bit strong for my liking but they do have a full bar.

The outdoor seating area is probably the best feature of this spot. They have the tall fire torches placed through the patio area, which was nice for a chilly night. We stopped here before heading to a Blackhawks game.

The menu is simple and the burgers seemed to be the preferred choice for everyone in my party, except for me. I tried the thin crust pizza and was underwhelmed by it.

Our server was great because she helped expedite our order, knowing that we were limited for time before the game. Her personality/style was sort of matter-of-fact, but honest. I actually liked that.

I have been here several times in the past before Blackhawks games and concerts. It always has worked well. The fries and burgers are a great start before heading over to the UC. I made the waitress aware of our plans and we were out the door in plenty of time.

It's been a while since I've been back to Three Aces and I can't say I will be running back anytime soon.

The outdoor patio has definitely seen an upgrade but the food has gone down. I feel like they've cut their menu a bit and what they offer now is just ok.

We ordered the baked olives, 3 pizzas, a burger, a salad and a pasta and while all were ok, nothing about the food was a standout. Everything was just sort of meh and left me wondering if they changed owners or chefs since the last time I visited.

The one highlight is the remodeling done to the patio is nice. We could have sat out there all night long bec it was a beautiful night and we had some nice cocktails.. What a shame the food didn't match the ambiance..

Walked over from the United Center to try Three Aces for the first time. Reservation was a good idea as the place was full. Wait staff was attentive. Beer list was a nice surprise. The Aces burger was fantastic. One of the best we have had in a Chicago. Bolognese fries were very good. Can't wait to go back for another burger!

We went to 3 Aces after seeing it on ChecK Please, and were really happy with everything we ordered. The bolognaise fries were to die for. The service was outstanding as well. The outdoor patio was lovely and we look forward to coming back again soon!

Recommend trying the Three Aces burger. But for a better deal, go with the Unholy Trinity.

4 of us ate at Three Aces and we all like our food (blackberry salads, hamburgers and pizza). It was a lovely low key evening sitting outside with mixed age groups around us.

They have a load of drink specials, lots of beers and fabulous pizzas. Super thin and crispy with wonderful and sometimes unusual, but great combos. The popcorn is also really neat with parmesan and green onions with hot sauce on the side. I liked it best without the sauce. There are also salads and pastas. Monday nights offer a shot of Old Crow, a beer selected by the bartender and a pizza for $13. The outside seating is fabulous and the music was very good, not loud, but it was Monday evening early.
