    Bull & Bear is a perfect place for friends to gather for brunch and take advantage of a sweet bottomless mimosas deal. The food is good too, and offers a variety of brunch dishes. Read more

    I don't know how it's possible to ruin one, but I had the WORST waffle in my life here. They took it off the bill, but it was still concrete.

    I stopped in here for a beer and the place was buzzing. The NCAA tourney was on so I enjoyed that. I meant to get back but never made it. Maybe next time.

    If you aren't very hungry but are looking for a quick snack, try either the sweet potato or truffle fries. Also, enjoy the many Goose Island beers available here.
