    This is great spot, be sure dress to impress. I heard from my local business acquaintance the patio is the place to be in the spring & summer time.

    On a nice day your best bet to get a table outside for happy hour is to go early (4pm) or go late (6:30pm).

    Tasty bites such as bacon-wrapped Cajun shrimp and sesame ahi tuna wraps provide a potent punch of flavor during a post-work stop. Read more

    Pros: Good food, great beer selection, nice outdoor space. Cons: Always a zoo. Seems like you need a "reservation" for just about any table during happy hour. Service is BRUTAL.

    Great spot for happy hour or a work lunch. Good food and drinks. Would not go here on weekends given loop location though.

    Great place to relax & grab some drinks/food after work. An escape from the hustle & bustle of the Loop. Sign up for their new rewards program & get $5 back! https://www.springrewards.com/places/28973

    Most of the menu is a miss, except for the incredibly solid club sandwich.

    Come here with coworkers for drinks. Good beer menu. Standard Loop drink prices. Food menu is decent, but on the higher priced side.
