    Great food & event space - only criticism is the relatively staid beer list. Add some smaller breweries on tap & in large format bottles. Put that space to use for some breweries for rare beer nights

    Lounge away on a “secret garden” upstairs patio that’s hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Wicker Park. The space is complemented by a daily rotating selection of frozen cocktails Read more

    Everything is outstanding. Get the Parpadelle with the short rib ragu. I could seriously eat that every single day. $5 glasses on wine on Wednesdays

    Meatballs at the deli are a delicious, old family recipe. Meats @ butcher shop are high quality (often local) & a great value. Dinner menu is served upstairs & downstairs after 5pm. Try the pork chop!

    Spicy Italian sub is solid. Add the mild (not spicy) peppers because the spiciness is just right. You can tell them that you want to eat your sandwich at the bar then order a beer.

    The deviled eggs and burger were delish. We asked to split it and they basically gave us each full orders of fries as well. Great cocktails, rooftop, and service.

    Treat yourself to the indulgent lobster polenta cake eggs benedict, or dig into a portobello mushroom stuffed with housemade caprese sausage and topped with a runny egg. Read more

    The butcher board may be a starter but really it's the main event. A lovely selection of meat and cheeses that pairs very well with the cocktail menu.

    It's a butcher shop. It's a restaurant. It's a bar. It's an event hall. It's all of these things, it's finally open, and it's huge.

    In the fall, great football game watching on a huge screen. In the summer, nice outdoor patio space. The burger is exceptionally good all year round.

    I have never eaten in, I have loved their Italian sausage, chops, and the marinara is the best. If the butchers aren't busy, they are helpful.

    Great place for food and beverages (try the whiskey) and accented with Bocce Ball. Check it out when you're in the neighborhood!

    Was in the back of the bar in one of the bigger party rooms but if your looking for a small, quaint place to drink, this is it.

    The squid ink pasta (on starters menu) is amazing and definitely large enough to be a moderately sized entree

    Food was good, but there was only 1 server for lunch, so it took some time to get our order in. The waiter was great once he got to us

    The gnocchi is so so but the drink menu has never left me disappointed. Try the steak sandwich and all their cocktails.

    Went here on a Tuesday night and they were out of half a dozen ordinary menu items. Server said it was a "busy weekend." How often do they have fresh ingredients brought in???
