    Being 2000 miles away from Chicago, the Chicago dog is surprisingly inauthentic. Still a good place

    Might be my favorite place to watch games. Plenty of tvs including a wall-sized one. Oyster bar and lots of beer variety. For regular bar food I recommend the bayou po-boy

    No gravy fries on the menu, but just ask and they'll pour gravy on your fries for you. Grab a fork.

    The bartender was sweet as pie! I had the snakebite (cider & lager) and it was delicious. Got a grilled chicken caesar and it was tasty as well. So glad I went with my gut and stopped by!

    If you get the surly female bartender who won't ask you what you want and just stares at you with a stupid look on her face, don't bother to leave her a tip.

    Order beer at the bar, oysters at the side bar towards the main room, and food just to the right as you walk in the front room. Like 3 different places to order/pay.
