This restaurant was a swing and miss. We came for trivia night on a Thursday to try and explore the neighborhood and the place was practically empty. We decided to stay and play anyways. They had $4 well drinks special, however my whiskey diet tasted pretty much like Diet Coke. The wings were okay but the pretzel bites tasted like hollowed out donuts, and not in a good way. I also got the skillet cookie which tasted like it came from a mix kit. The service was nothing to write home about and it always felt like I was trying to flag down the waitress. All in all bad and I won’t be coming here again.

We enjoy The Weathermark a lot. It’s off the path a bit but still convenient. A nice break from the $250 tab on “the mile”. They had live music the night we were there so it was a bit loud but in a positive way.

I met some clients at the restaurant for a casual meeting. It was the perfect spot for what we wanted, a laidback vibe with a great beer list. The service was really good and the staff were knowledgeable about the beer selection. I would recommend Weather Mark for a chill place to hangout at.

It was not a bad experience. The outdoor sitting seems a bit cramped. Bottomless mimosas should be extended till 5pm.

The ambiance is great. The service was slow. Nice servers but just not great service. Had to ask multiple times for drink orders to be placed and even to get silverware once food came. There was a party in back where we were seated so I think most servers were working the party.

Unfortunately, we were not impressed. I didn't realize it was basically a bar (tavern) preparing brunch. Our party of 5 were seated at 2 high-top cocktail tables with no elbow room whatsoever. The music was so loud that we couldn't hear each other. They never even offered coffee! The food was average - cold soft hash-browns.

We visited for a Saturday brunch and found the brunch menu to be imaginative and broad yet reasonably priced. Two at our table chose the bloody mary grilled cheese and I had crab cakes egg benedict. All were thoroughly enjoyed! Cocktails were also great!

It was ok. They didn't have a lot of the items on the menu. For brunch. That was a disappointment.
The food was not anything noteworthy.
The drinks were pretty good.

I took my college aged daughter and her two friends here for dinner. They loved the atmosphere of a bar/tavern, especially decorated for Halloween. I felt it was too casual for the prices. The food was good, especially the pretzel bites!

Eggs Benedict is horrible. I eat it almost everywhere I go and this is by far the worst.
Endless mimosas are good deal

I met a friend for a catch up dinner and found Weather Mark Tavern. The location worked well. It has a very neighborhood bar feel to it. The front has a better 'feel' than the back and is kinda cute. Service was very slow at the best. We were not in a hurry so it did not impact directly but did wear on us by the time we had to ask for boxes and the bill. Food was good bar food. Great for after work when you need to have a beer and food. Wouldn't go out of my way to go back there but wouldn't not go back if in the area.

Good beer selection, and it's great location provides an easy walk to Soldier Field.

ITEM TO NOTE: On days of Chicago Bears home games, they DO NOT ACCEPT OpenTable reservations DESPITE being able to book them through OpenTable. I talked with the staff about it and they have been trying to address this issue with OpenTable but as of Sept 2018, this is an issue. It's worth noting, despite this issue and them being packed, they did seat us within 15 minutes of our online reservation time. My thanks to the team at WeatherMark for being accommodating!

It has plenty of space and tables and reasonable price if your goal is largely focused for all you can drink mimosas as a brunch get together.

However, the food is quite terrible and seemed undercooked as well.

The food was good overall, but just your standard bar fare. Service was very, slow, to put it kindly. Decent beer specials and good location near Northerly Island for a concert.
