    Back bar is better but much more crowded.

    If all you want is Goose island beer, then you will like this place. No full bar. The main part of the pub is fun and lively, but the add-on room in the back is sterile and boring.

    Best brewpub in the city. Hands down. Best variety of beers and some you can't find or drink anywhere else. The food menu is excellent and offers great pairing options. Bring the whole family!

    Service was undesirable and food was cold. Try eating cold pulled pork and server rolling her eyes because I wanted hot food. Limited parking.
  • Michael D.
    Michael DiGilioOctober 13, 2015
    Very unimpressed with the in-house brews here. Sure, Matilda and Sofie are top notch. But the rotating selection of other flavorless beers left a lot to be desired from a name as big as Goose Island.

    Laid back atmosphere, great local brewery with several outstanding Brews. Food was excellent. Friendly and attentive staff. Get the grilled cheese with chips!

    Beer should be the only reason to go here. Practically their whole lineup is on draft. Service is good, food, well, not so good.

    Matilde and Sofie are my favourites, but since they can be found anywhere, I would pick something that they only have there.

    The waiter made some great recommendations, the wort bread was delicious, the beer was reasonably priced for Chicago, and the space was really nice. Not the most exciting menu, but some great choices.
