    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.

    The brunch mimosas for $5 are the best deal I've seen anywhere. So is the DIY chili.

    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.

    Julie at the bar is probably the best, most helpful, and friendliest bartender I've ever had. And, she's working the whole bar alone!
